Very nice room, clean and roomy. This was a basic room, not a bunch of extra stuff we didn't want or need! There was a microwave and small fridge and coffee maker. Everyone that we dealt with was pleasant and helpful. We would definitely stay there again and recommend to oir friends.

I took my son to Arkansas to dig for crystals and stayed at the Joplin Inn in a suite with a kitchen. It was exactly what we were looking for at the right price. The room was cozy, inviting, very clean, and the kitchen was well stocked with everything that we needed. There was a nice backyard area with volleyball,... More

We found Joplin Inn quite by accident on the internet. Sometimes it is hard to know what you are getting when looking on the internet, but Joplin is everything they claim to be. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, the staff is very friendly, there are plenty of towels, the showers are hot and the pressure is good.... More

There really are not many choices, and this was the closest to Mount Ida, which is where we were visiting family. The staff were great. The motel smelled musty and was moist. Not a whole lot of ventilation. It is a no frills, very basic place to stay. I thought it was over priced.

This motel strip is about 40 feet from a two lane road that is heavily traveled. expect to hear road noise all thru the night. The room looks like it was meant for a king bed but they put 2 double beds in the space. The beds were comfortable and bathroom was clean.

I was only at the Joplin Inn for one night, arriving at 7:00 pm and leaving at 8:30 am the next morning. The experience was good overall. Easy, friendly check-in across the street at the Valero. Accommodations were pretty good for the price. Only two things I would want to see changed for future visits. I felt like my room... More

We stayed at the Joplin Inn when we came to Mount Ida to dig for Crystals. The room was small but very clean and comfortable. I didn't realize that it was so close to the highway, but it was surprisingly quiet- especially for someone that is noise sensitive. We had a great time and all of the people were very... More

The staff at the Mountain Harbor Resort were very accommodating. My wife, two kids and I stayed two nights at the Joplin Inn. After the first night, they called my cell phone once in the late morning and again that afternoon just to see if we needed anything and to make sure that our stay thus far was satisfactory. I...

My 2 friends and I needed a get-away and decided that digging crystals in Mt. Ida would be lots of fun for us rock-hounds. The Joplin in is only a few miles from Mt. Ida and was a very lovely place. It is the perfect throw back to simpler times. At least it looks like a place that would be... More
