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.

We were here for three nights in July for a family function. We picked this place based on reviews from various websites. 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. Outdoor pool... More

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 Although the staff was extremely friendly and helpful, our room was a bit outdated in terms of appointments and the bathroom was dimly lit.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. Your description indicates it was brown sugar oatmeal. Brown sugar hardens into lumps and that is what dropped in your bowl. We check our packets for out-dates and... More

On our way from Kansas to Ms needed a place to lay our heads down for the night. It was convenient to several eating establishments, walmart etc... Nice little pool in the back. Decent breakfast. Would stay again for overnight but not the best Best Western quality beds to stay for any period of time. Staff was very friendly and... More

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.

Having stayed at this location not long ago was pleased that the renovations were done. Nice rooms,, but still had a bit of new odor, from maybe the carpet. Great beds and and room was very nice. Breakfast fine and would stay again . Recommend and room rates are decent. Ask for any discounts.

Hotel was nice. Right off the highway. One of our rooms wasn't ready, so the guy at the front desk gave us a key to another room within minutes of my call. Rooms were nice. I would stay here again. The area had a lot of stuff nearby.

My wife and I stayed at this Best Western property overnight on our return home from a 3 week "Western Swing" through South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado.

Hi SunCitySteve: WE could have fixed most of your complaints with one phone call to the front desk. I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay. Next time let us know while you are still on property when you are not happy with something. We will gladly fix the problem. Thank You, Bob More
