Should have read the reviews! Dated hotel past its prime. They are working on renovations - the bathroom was totally renovated and beautiful but the bed was probably from the 1980's. The price of the room does not reflect the quality. Beautiful location and grounds (and bathroom) but that's about it. Overpriced - should have stayed elsewhere.

Thank you for your input regarding your recent stay. The recent reviews on TA and reviews from our guests have been nothing but positive about our newly renovated rooms. I'm not clear what "bed from the 80's" you are referencing as our linens are brand new and the beds were replaced within the last five years. The headboards are all... More

It's been a while since I have last stayed here. Last time I was here, the rooms were dark and out dated. Not this last time! What a nice surprise it was! Rooms are much brighter, the bathrooms are completely redone, and everything looked so nice. Even the floors. The staff are always so nice and pleasant. I didn't visit... More

Thank you for your kind remarks regarding the Inn. We have gotten nothing but great reviews on our room renovations, but its nice to hear someone who saw the "before and after". Yes, we are somewhat famous for our grits. Even when I travel and meet someone who has visited the Inn, they ask about the grits. We look forward... More

Spent one night there on a Monday night for a business trip. Rooms have recently been remodeled. They were nice and clean as well. The staff was very friendly. The hotel could still using a little more sprucing up in places but it appears to be a work in progress. The views of the lakes and hills were outstanding.

We usually stay at Holiday Inn Express and Best Western Plus when we travel, but whenever possible we like to be adventurous. Red Apple Inn and Country Club is a perfect example of why we do this. What a wonderful place to stay at a very reasonable rate. Where to start? We got a room on the north side with... More

I have stayed at the Red Apple Inn twice this year with a group that also utilizes the conference center. First of all, the rooms are simply marvelous! The beds are quite comfy, pillows full and plump, bedding sumptuous. I slept like a log! The bathroom was tastefully updated and I loved the heater in the bathtub area - a... More

October, 1974 was my initial contact with "Red Apple". Honeymoon destination <smile>. Still just as quiet, relaxing and social. Love it !! Ongoing refurbishing is encouraging. If I lived in Arkansas, this would be a four-season treat.

The Red Apple Inn is nice. It has a good reputation. It has redone rooms which look nice. It has a nice golf course, and a restaurant with a better menu than food. It is a good option if you want to see the area, or need to stay in the area. I would give it a 31/2 rating, if... More

The Red Apple Inn has been an Arkansas destination for years. I remember everyone from overworked parents to corporate executives talking about their stay at the Red Apple Inn. It is a quiet retreat in a beautiful area of the state. If you're looking for a quiet, low-key get away - this is a place to consider. Heber Springs has... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights in early August basically exploring this part of Arkansas. The most frustrating aspect was the weak wifi. We had to be on a corner of our room to get a decent signal.
