I spent one night there on business. The room cost me $63 with my AAA discount, and was easily the best deal in town. I stayed in a room not far from the lobby but had not problem with noise. The room is certainly aging, but it was clean and of decent size. Wifi was fine (I don't use open... More

We were able to get one of the rooms on the main level which looks to have been remodeled recently. All of the rooms on the main floor look updated. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, the bath redone, a large flat screen TV in an armoire, great water pressure in the shower. The owners were friendly and... More

I have traveled to Fort Scott frequently in the past 20 years. This was my initial go to place because I was young and it was cheap. But as I have grown this place has seen some major changes and updates with little price increase. My most recent trip June 26- July 3 2015, the hotel had done some awesome... More

We stayed here over the weekend for the all school high school reunion. We rented 2 single rooms. I booked these rooms back in January, I wanted rooms next to each other as the 2nd room was for my kids, and requested this at the time of booking. Our rooms were 102 and 114, so not right next to each... More

This is a hotel that needs a lot of care and attention, it is not as bad as some have suggested, the rooms and beds are clean and tidy but the whole place is best described as dated and a bit shabby. The staff are good, they are trying hard with a difficult situation, without investment and rejuvenation they will... More

This is by far the worst hotel we have ever stayed in the past 30 years. We had a wedding in a nearby city so we needed three rooms for the best value, non smoking, and pet friendly. This hotel seemed to have all of that. After arriving and being greeted by the employees standing outside smoking we were taken... More

Fort Smith does not have many locations for weary travelers to bed down. We went to this Inn because we were tired of driving and it showed up as "Best Western" on our older GPS. It is indeed an old Best Western and some things have been renovated but they have a long way to go. It is a pet-friendly... More

When on a long bike trip, I'm only looking for a clean room and bathroom, comfortable bed, and hot shower. So my expectations are not high past this, but this place is definitely lacking in cleanliness. It's old and way past the time to be renovated. I will say that the staff was extremely pleasant and helpful, but the positives... More

Our class has convened at this Inn exclusively for the past decade and are working with current management for our 60th Class reunion next June. They have renovated the premises and have been very cooperative in providing accommodations appropriate for our needs. The rooms are clean and comfortable and service reliable. When their planned dining facility is reopened, that will... More
