4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

Nice room - clean, quiet. Nice stay. But, forgot my phone charger in the room. I stop by in the afternoon to ask for a check of the lost and found. No charger. Check room, no charger. What do I get for my troubles? A blank look. Never stay there again.

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. We only had two hotel stays that were "unfortunate". This was one of them. First the pros: the front desk staff was helpful and check-in/check-out was efficient. The breakfast, while minimalist, was... More

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

The room was clean, the staff provided extra linen for the roll away bed to accommodate the 5 of us. The kids could use their electronics with the WI-FI to keep them occupied. Breakfast was good with lots of items to chose from. The kids enjoyed the pool. We were close to area attractions and restaurants, plus shopping centers.. I... More

Stayed here on night one of our 10 day motorcycle ride to Utah. Very clean room with comfortable beds. Would stay here again. Good price and secure parking for the bikes. Restaurants within walking distance and right off the interstate. Front desk was very helpful.
