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.

I would like to give this place 3.5 stars ... it's in a great location, and the management seems really on top of things. The room was very clean, the problem is that it's not built well - for example, the walls are so thin that you can hear your neighbor's conversation when they aren't even speaking loudly. The breakfast... More

At first I thought we were going to be in trouble. Walked into the office and it did not smell good. But, when we walked into the room, it was very clean and semi-updated. The bedding was very nice and the beds were soft. Things that need updating: tv (old, but worked), self dispensers in bathroom and shower for shampoo... More

This is a great place to stay, wonderful location and priced reasonable. We had a King Room and it was a good sleep, the room was spacious, the bathroom a touch tight but doable. The had dispensers in the shower and sink area and thought was a great idea. The place is within walking of some great eating and doing,... More
