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

We stayed in the suite at the Joplin Inn during a recent ice storm. It was warm and cozy and had all of the amenities we needed. The creek behind the inn is beautiful. The staff was wonderful. We will go back for a little getaway during good weather. We will stay there again.

What a lovely surprise. Booked the house for two days for my wedding reception. It flowed so nicely for 50 people and it was amazing. We booked three rooms and The House and was not disappointed in any of the rooms. I was even upgrated to the suite at no extra charge and the staff could not have been any... More

"The House" at the Joplin Inn was such a surprise. It was spacious, very nicely redone and perfect for two families to stay. The price was very affordable for what you receive. Everyone at Mt Harbor was so friendly and helpful. Will definitely be staying here again.

We recently took our children and grandchildren with us on a trip to the Hot Springs/Mount Ida area. Colonial Motel was able to accomodate our request for adjoining non-smoking rooms. Was nice when the grand kids needed a nap! This is an older motel, but it is in good shape. We've stayed in some large motel chains before that were... More

I only needed this for a night, and it was sufficient. I was attending a family reunion at Mountain Harbor, and only needed this to come back and sleep. It was clean, had comfortable beds, and met my needs. Nothing fancy, but good for a place to lay my head to rest at night. Very reasonable also. I also found... More

I found the rooms to be clean and spacious. The staff was really nice and the little store on the end was very convenient. For the money, it is a good place to stay.

We have stayed at the Colonial Motel several times over the last couple of years. It's not fancy by any means, but is clean, has big rooms and comfortable beds. Each time we visit the area, our kids beg us to stay there. The little store connected has good snacks and friendly people. We have always had a nice time... More

This is a small nice motel. There are so many things to do in the area that you dont spen alot of time in the room anyway. Nice place to lay your head after a all day adventure. The store attached to it had the best breakfast and homemade baked goods! I love this place and will visit them again!
