My recommendation @Nicole McCormick would be a Roku TV from TCL, Hisense or Element. I have TCL tv's for the most part in our vacation rental. They are easy to use and reliable.

I swapped out the 55" TCL in the living room with a 65" Element Roku TV and it is also a decent TV.

One nice thing is remotes are easy to replace and cheap. I bought a couple as replacements just in case for $6 each. Roku is the key IMHO. Super easy to use for anyone of any age.

I have 6 Insignia TVs from BestBuy in one of my STRs that we rehabbed early last year and they have been great.  Not a single problem or complaint.

Roku's are the easiest for guests to use.  I have them in all my latest rentals and never get any complaints.  In my own home, I prefer Samsung's, but for the one beach rental I have a Samsung in, the guests are always having problems with the menu function (even after making instructional videos).

Another vote for TCL Rokus. Just got a 55" for $298 from Walmart.

Ditto with everyone else... TCL Roku TVs. 

Unfortunately, Costco stopped selling them (last I checked).
