This hotel is a step back in time. It is old and has not been updated in a very long time. Rooms are warn and run down. Rust is everywhere. If you have an allergy to dust or mold, this is not the place for you. If you want an authentic old Hot Springs experience this is it. The hotel... More

This trip was dedicated to a deeper dive of Hot Springs and its wedding vendors. We stayed at the Arlington before and enjoyed the authentic historic charm. The thermal water is made available throughout the hotel and one of 3 remaining exposed natural springs can be found just across the street. There's a great promenade with hiking trails and it's...

We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed everything we tired at this hotel. It is preserved as it used to be in the 1920-ies. The decor is astonishing and can compete with any European hotel from the era of spa grandeur. Be prepared to experience a subtle old house smell that goes away after a couple of minutes. The rooms... More

My husband and I spent two nights. (Actually currently here). First impression WOW. I love the old timey rooms and everything. Everyone is also friendly. (So far). Here are my complaints.. The wifi is awful can't even load a simple page. (Which in modern times it is very needed and I actually look for hotels who offer some type of... More

we've stayed in historic hotels, European hotels, etc. therefore, not updating every 2 years to meet corporate did not bother us. We had great service by staff that was older, more experienced and could get things done. The rooms and baths were clean.

Got a great deal thru Groupon and had a short getaway for our anniversary. We arrived late on Thursday but had a speedy check in. The hotel itself was great and we were well treated by any staff we came in contact with. It is an older hotel but it is always busy. It also has live bands on the... More

In it's prime this would have rivaled ANY hotel. Not much has been updated, don't expect a modern room or bathroom. Everything has only been slightly maintained. The dining room was glorious. Real tablecloths for breakfast. The pool is off the Seventh floor. Had a room the overlooked the park across the street. Being on the seventh floor I didn't... More

I went to Hot Springs with a friend on her recommendation. She has stayed at this property before and wanted me to share in the "historical experience". It was nice however, I would have rather stayed down the street at another hotel. One reason I felt this way was because I was hopeful for a fridge and microwave. The price... More

Hosting a family reunion, I reserved for the overflow to stay in the Smarty Jones Suite and I was not disappointed! Thursday night, Jackie B and Me serenaded the 78 year old birthday boy engaging the whole lobby. The two pools accommodated teenagers, babies and couples on a sunny afternoon while music played and the grill was open, fun for... More

I stayed here fore a girls getaway. The hotel is cool to see since its old and historic. However, it needs tons of repairs, is not well cared for, and is out of date. Our rooms were clean overall but the bathrooms had mold in the showers. The hotel pool would have been amazing in its prime and its definitely... More
