Very nice hotel. Room was clean, bed was good, the grounds were well kept. The décor of the room was updated and very stylish. Overall it was a good experience. We would definitely stay there again. And we do come to Arkansas a lot.

The stay was very good and relaxing. We choose Best Western because my wife loves your beds. She says its the best sleep she has ever gotten in comparison to other hotel chains. The location was perfect just off I-40 with many businesses and restaurants to select from. There is a movie theater less than 5 minutes with a good... More

This motel is conveniently located for travel along I40. We travel with a small dog and on this trip found Best Westerns we tried to be very pet friendly and a good value. The rooms are clean, smell fresh, and have conveniently located pet areas. The room was a bit noisier than we used to but that was due to... More

The front desk lady was great at checkin.. rooms wonderful with remodel,,, and rates good right now . Breakfast lacked alot even though said light due to remodel,,, didn't even have toast or something easy for travelers breakfast. Some of the TV channels were terribly fuzzy but found out that was a station issue. Would stay again.

It smelled clean, brand new even. It was really refreshing. Bed is super comfortable. The AC unit was clean,... More

Very nice and clean. We blew out a fuse trying to heat some soup but they maintenance came out pretty quickly and fixed everything. Could use a few more towels, but over all good! The front desk was helpful and gave us the room we wanted, quiet and in the back, although parking in the back was somewhat scarce.
