I showed up very late at night one morning. I asked for a quiet and clean room. Joe, gave a room at the end of the complex that was so clean and nice! I even asked "please" to let me sleep in an additional hour. So, I was able to check out at 12:00 p.m. instead of the usual 11:00... More

The Van Buren Inn Best Western is right off Exit 5 on I-40 along the Oklahoma/Arkansas border. The hotel is an exterior corridor hotel but has been well loved by its owners. The service was adequate if uninspired but the room was well appointed and in great condition. Breakfast was better than average although the internet connection was pretty spotty.... More

Hi Civalwarguy: Thank you for your nice comments about our property. Glad you enjoyed the breakfast. But hate that you had problem with the internet. Did you call the front desk or the number in the room for internet service? Hope you come back soon. Thank you, Bob More

I had to attend a funeral and I was behind on time. I selected this location as it was about half way to my location. The area had everything (food) within a short walking distance. The room was very clean, air condition did not smell bad and the TV worked as it should have worked. I will stay in this... More

I have to say that this hotel is absolutely fantastic. I travel here twice a week, ( job related- Two day route for a food distribution company) and they never let me down. The owners Simon and Angie are very friendly and down-to-Earth and always make sure that I am in a nice comfy room. The housekeeping staff are super... More

We were on a long road trip to Las Vegas and back, just driving until we got tired. This was a very nice stop along the way! The staff was friendly and the room was a pleasant surprise - clean and modern furnishings. Will definitely stay here again if in the area.

We came to the hotel in the late afternoon. The receptionist was very helpful and nice. The room was nicely decorated and clean. The only problem was that at night the noise from the near highway was strong.

Thank you for your stay and your positive comments about the clean room and helpful staff. Our sincere apologies for the external noise. Normally we do not have this issue as our hotel is some distance away from the highway and we have sound proofing in all rooms. Also rooms at the back are quieter and would have been gladly... More

Okay, so a "five star" hotel this isn't. It's not that great on the outside...it's a little reminiscent of the old Best Westerns...but the rooms are completely new, comfortable and clean. The shower was even great. On top of all this, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again.

This hotel, conveniently located just off I-40, is being refurbished and we arrived just as the painters were finishing up for the day. Everyone went out of their way to accommodate us and make us feel comfortable even though they were busy with their chores.

Very nice accommodations with efficient staff. The breakfast was well supplied and tasted great. Beds were very comfortable and easily put you to sleep. The staff was nice both inbound and outbound. The only negative was a lack of sound proofing from adjoining rooms. We could easily hear the television and people talking or coughing in the next room. While... More
