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.

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

We greatly enjoyed our stay in this hotel. Management was so friendly and helpful, room was large and clean and the location was beautiful. The price was also excellent and much appreciated as we needed two rooms for our family. Highly recommend this property!

The town of Hot Springs is a quiet place and it seems the whole town closes after 7:00 pm. The hotel is located on the main street next to the river and the old railway station. Hotel is well kept and the staff very polite and helpful. Bathroom small but well equipped with soap and shampoo dispensers. Separate area with... More

While the location is just off the river with a stunning view of the historic sandstone buildings, Americas Best Value Inn by the river failed to please. The walls are not sound resistant by any means and every conversation and footstep can be heard all night. They use radiant heat strips for heating and are evidently tired of explaining why... More

This motel is in a great location. It is in front of a running river with a great view of an older part of the city. The breakfast is standard served in a small room. The rooms are a little noisy with thin walls. The owner is a very nice person and is helpful in all ways.
