We stayed at this hotel during our travel across the state. When we arrived at the place, the room was missing some essentials like the towels. But the manager who was managing for the night assisted immediately without any much problems. The room is huge and it has got a comfortable bed where we can rest and get recharged for... More

Hi SamJacob: Glad you got rested up to continue your trip. Sorry about the towels. The rooms are inspected each day, this one must have been over looked. We will keep you comments about the plates in mind. Hope to see you again and have a safe trip. Thank you, Bob More

The hotel staff was very friendly and the hotel room was very good for the price. An excellent roadside hotel. If you happen to be travelling along Interstate 40, we highly recommend stopping at this hotel in Van Buren. Excellent value for the price.

Exceptional property for convience and cleanliness. We were moving across country and needed a pet friendly hotel. I am a Gold Crown member so I always try to consider Best Western when I can. This hotel stands out for room quality. Very well run property.

It is an older motel style where you park outside your door but has been newly remodeled. The bed was very comfy and included new bedding and good pillows. The room and bathroom were very clean.

Booked a room about 30 minutes before arriving in Van Buren, AR for an overnight stop on a cross country road trip. Although the staff was extremely friendly and helpful, our room was a bit outdated in terms of appointments and the bathroom was dimly lit. However, it was clean, a/c cooled and the bed was comfortable. It also included... More

Thank you for your survey commenting on clean & comfortable room with free wifi. We do have a choice in our hot breakfast. Oatmeal comes prepacked from Quaker Oats in variety flavours.

Driving down I-40 looking for a clean and friendly place to spend the night. Then the Best Western in Van Buren is the place. It is just off I-40 and near local restaurants and close to Wal-Mart. The hot breakfast was excellent!

The rooms were very clean and having a refrigerator was great. We had an excellent stay, and if we are in the area again we will certainly come back again. Everyone was friendly and attentive to our needs.

Very nice, exceptionally clean, with comfortable décor. Helpful staff. The hot breakfast was very good, with healthy choices. I felt safe staying at this hotel. Nicely located by HWY, for all attractions, you can walk over to WALMART & small hopping center. Many restaurants close. Good place to stay.
