Though sitting beside very busy I-40 just north of Ft. Smith, AR, the BW Van Buren Inn is remarkably quiet and a great jumping off place if you're headed to OKC, a Razorbacks' game, or the scenic Boston Mountains. I was driving from Lincoln, NE to Kilgore, TX and found this a convenient overnight stop, assigned there by Hotwire. Reading... More

The lobby and breakfast areas were under construction so there was no hot breakfast. Nothing was on the website about it or through the reservations center when we booked the room. The room was clean and nicely done like most Best Western hotels we stay in. But, we were disappointed at not being able to have a good hot breakfast... More

They had remodeled the rooms, new carpet, room fixtures. This made the room extremely clean. They had not finished with remodel in the lobby and breakfast area. They advertised hot breakfast and because of remodel all they had was cold items. There was no place to sit and eat breakfast. Had to take it back to room. Walls and very... More

Excellent in all ways, except no exhaust fan in the bath room. The breakfast was an all-you-can-eat buffet and was fantastic! We stayed there because of a medical requirement we stay in Albuquerque overnight, and MCM Elegante gave us a medical discount on the room.

We are glad you enjoyed our guest room at a discounted rate and hot breakfast. Did you inform the front desk on the bathroom fan issue - it would have been resolved immediately! We appreciate your comments and you are welcome any time. More

The motel was under construction remodel-new carpet, furniture, bath fixtures, decor. They quit working at 7pm as promised. Walls are thin so you can hear talking in next room. Room was nicely remodeled. Front desk personnel were very nice. Breakfast quality is a disappointment overall. Bisquits and gravy were good. Coffee was good. A good value.

Thank you for completing this survey regarding your recent stay at our property. Remodel of rooms will be shortly be completed. Walls are made of concrete and hence noise from next room is not heard unless they are exceptionally loud. What was wrong with breakfast quality specifically? Did you inform the breakfast lady in charge? We could have resolved it... More

We were on our last leg of our 6000 mile journey across our beautiful country and had found this Best Western thru trip advisor. Read the reviews which were good. However, we were charged a $25 booking fee when we called the 800 number plus we had to pay in advance. This caused a little apprehension as to the kind... More

Clean inside and out, friendly professional staff, comfortable bed, good shower, good breakfast, has a good Italian restaurant next door ... I stay here this time every year and have no expectations of changing that.

We had a comfortable nights stay after along day with the grandchildren. It was a late check in after a high school football game an hour's drive away. Our handicapped room had be saved for us. Check in was as simple as saying we're here and over the keys. Breakfast was excellent.

We were very pleased with our room at this location. The room had been recently remodeled. Vanity and bathroom areas were clean. This was a great location: convenient to freeway, but far enough away to avoid freeway noise. Spacious area for dog walking. Good amenities nearby
