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

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
