Room was clean but hotel was dated. Front desk was very friendly when checking in. The rooms all faced the down town area and river which was pleasant to see. We were able to go for morning run through the down town area right from hotel. A few restaurants and bars to choose from within walking distance. Pool was on... More

After our debacle at Dollar Inn, we came here for a nights rest. The staff courteous, the room clean although lacking polish, with plenty of quiet cold air conditioning. The only weird thing was hearing a rooster through the vent system at 6am. The Refrigerator and microwave came in handy.

We stayed one night on our way thru to Yellowstone, etc. I booked several hotels online from home before we left for vacation, and this was the only dud in the bunch. Room was in need of updating, the place smelled funky & though there was a sign saying "no smoking" on the balcony, several people were hanging out on... More

I'm really surprised by some of the good reviews on here. On the plus side, the general manager was very friendly and took the time to check on us when we hadn't arrived by early evening, since they were full and wanted to be sure we were still coming. He helped us with our luggage to the second floor since... More

Stayed in one of the cabins. Bedding provided was adequate, but not stellar. Bunks had "bunkie" mats, not actual mattresses. Shower stall only in a very compact bathroom space. Sink located in bedroom space. Only access to toilet was to go through the bedroom. Breakfast consisted primarily of bread items, hard boiled eggs, waffles, oatmeal packets, coffee, and juice. Enough... More

Stayed here for the first time and we were very happy with our choice. Ahmedur, the general manager was super and could not do enough to make our stay pleasurable. The room was clean and roomy and the only drawback was, as others have said, a bit noisy when the neighboring rooms were occupied. This can be expected from older... More

I've stayed at this motel twice now. It is in a great location...very close to restaurants and attractions, many in close walking distance of your room. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are fairly clean, if not dated. The bedding was very worn.That is where the good review ends. The rooms are EXTREMELY noisy. I heard things... More

The hotel is a bit dated, but the people were super nice and the place was clean. Great location on the river, we walked everywhere, along the river, up the stairs, over to the Mammoth Site... Good free breakfast, loved the make your own waffles.

Hotel is in nice location in downtown hot springs. Unfortunately, much of the main property is dated and due for a remodel. Smell of many rooms was musty/damp. Would recommend looking elsewhere. Staff was great and price was reasonable, but there are better options.

River walk, waterfall, cliffs, springs and old beautiful architecture across the street. The Inn is clean , the hosts are friendly and helpful. The free breakfast is what you would expect. I had a hard boiled egg and oatmeal. Our room was clean. Old but well kept furnishings and fixtures. Lavendar hand soap, and good shampoo in dispensers. Refrigerator and... More
