We have stayed here several times over the last 9 years. Rooms are on the smaller side, but kept up nicely. The owners are very friendly too. The prices for the rooms are great. Good place to stay if you are going to Lake Ouachita too.

I stayed here with a friend last year. If you are tired of big, impersonal hotels or you are just tired, Royal Oak Inn is the place to stay! From the moment you walk into the office, you are greeted with a smile and down-to-earth Friendliness! The price is reasonable and the rooms are clean! The pool sparkles, inviting a... More

We stayed a night on a road trip home, planning to mine crystals in Mt. Ida the next day. The room was spacious and clean, and the water pressure in the shower was good. Some quibbles: the hotel wifi signal was too weak to work in our room, and the air conditioner kept blowing the flimsy curtains right above it... More

We stay there when visiting family. It has been remodeled and has Wi-Fi. Owners are very cordial and American! When going crystal mining, this motel is very convenient. Several restaurants, very good, are nearby.

The staff was very friendly and the price was great. The bathroom sink and toilet were spotless. The tub faucet had mildew in the handles. The room was very clean, but the heavy smell of what I think was carpet deodorizer gave me a headache. The coffee pot was stored on the floor under the desk...not sure why. The bed... More

Arrived for our one night reservation in a non-smoking room that definitely had been smoked in, and recently. Bathroom had not been cleaned - toilet was atrocious!! Pillow cases were so old that they were ripped and frayed on the edges and very worn. We weren't expecting the Ritz and appreciate more than most an old, classic motel, but this... More

The owners are really nice and sweet. The pool is clean. The rooms are plain but the beds are soft and the water pressure in the showers is the best. And it is a half a mile from the Mt Ida Cafe, which is excellent. The Royal Oak Inn is the best place to stay.

We came up to hunt for crystals. I hate to spend much for a room anywhere and I don't know what makes the rooms in this small town cost more than I like. I prefer something with a fridge and microwave, but I can live without those. I do want a TV and wi-fi though. The wi-fi here works most... More

My wife and I stayed three nights, the rooms were clean and comfortable, the only reason I would give it a four is that they don't have a frig or microwave, but they do off free bags of ice, so be sure you have a cooler if you need to keep something cool. The owner and staff is friendly. We... More
