This is an older motel on a high ridge overlooking the lake. The view from the rooms can't get any better. The management is a friendly as it gets. You have to go downstairs to the bar and see the pariot who runs the place.

Recommended to us by a friend. Nice greeting upon arrival. If you dont need any extra this is the place for you. Small bathroom with not much room to set out toiletries. Very clean. Outstanding views. Couch ,tables and chairs. Only real negative for us was the bed. Mattress dipped in the middle. Wasn't very comfy. Ready to get back... More

This motel is awesome, the owners Chip and Evie are incredible people, from our very first visit we felt like old friends. The room was so nice and clean, the view of the lake was so pretty as we watched the sunset from our balcony. Afterwards we headed downstairs to the bar a beer with the other guest and the... More

Nice clean,comfortable room, plus a gorgeous view. I stayed over on a Thursday night and was able to enjoy the pool and hot tub without a lot of other guests and it was so relaxing! Then I went downstairs to the bar, had a couple of drinks and a cheese burger, and visited with the local patrons.It was fun! What... More

Comfortable king bed. The room was spacious and clean. Just don't freak out if a spider crawls under your door. A/C works great. Gorgeous view of the lake! The bar IS a biker bar so don't count on a romantic setting for a drink - but you can drink in your room.

Found this wonderful place on accident. Neatest little bar we have seen. Chip, the owner has the best beer selection and all for $3.50. Beautiful view and great place to stay. Rooms were clean and bed was amazing. Best hamburger I have had in a long time. We will be staying here again for sure. Nicest people you will meet!

We stayed at the Cruise Inn with two other couples for four nights. This is exactly the kind of motel we seek when traveling on our motorcycles. Evie and Chip are super friendly and very, very accommodating. The Throttle Down is a perfect hang out after a day on the road. Drinks, food, and service are exceptional. A storm went... More

Owners Chip and Evie radiate hospitality, starting with the welcoming smile. Clean, quaint rooms (ours had vintage early-60's kitchenette appliances that all worked!), and breathtaking views. The Throttle Down was a blast, and Louie the Parrot kept the conversation lively. We happened to visit on a night when Chip and Evie were hosting one of their monthly birthday celebrations, complete... More

My husband and I were looking to get away on the bike for a while. We stumbled across this place online, and booked right away. It was exactly what we needed. The views of the lake, are PRICELESS. Even the laundry room. We stayed during BB&B weekend, between the venders in Eureka Springs, Fayetteville, and the hotel, you didn't need... More

Cruise Inn is one of our favorite places. Chip and Evie are great hosts and each time we go they become better friends. We have taken several of our friends along with us and ALL of them enjoyed their stay and have returned several times. We ride motorcycles and the ride there is fantastic. The view from the rooms are... More
