My wife & I got a last minute deal thru Priceline for HIE for 5/18/13 and we were fairly pleased. Good accessible location, very close to I-540, very convenient for nearly anyone staying in Bentonville or most of Rogers.
We got a great price thru PL although I'm seeing regular rates of over $100/night on some sights, which is probably overpriced. Nice lobby & polite staff during my check-in & check out...I didn't partake in the free hot breakfast in the morning but it looked/smelled good and there were plenty of people who checked it out.
Location/room was quiet, extremely comfortable bed, nice tv and fairly nicely-furnished rooms, including a couch. It might've been nice to have a microwave or especially a fridge, although they weren't essential on this trip and we weren't expecting them.
It might not be the nicest/newest HIE I've ever seen, but I'd definitely stay there again and I think most people would be pleased with the place--especially if they're able to get a good deal thru someone like Priceline or Hotwire, etc. Disregard the review that says it's a "dive", or the person who griped about the area & the entire state for that matter--people with an axe to grind have difficulty giving unbiased & accurate assessments.
Incidentally, northwest Arkansas is an extremely nice area for the most part--the shopping (including high end stores) has improved by leaps and bounds in the last 5 years, it's improved a lot economically, the scenery is still very pretty despite a lot more population/business growth and the people are nicer than most parts of the country.
