“Great place but high”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

This is a very nice hotel. I really love the pool area and hot tub. I am always relaxed when i stay here, but its expensive so I do not stya very often. The prices are higher than some of the hotels in Memphis on Beale street. Because the prices are that high I usually go to Memphis and stay on Beale street, However, if you stay here you will not be disappointed. Everything is wonderful from the rooms, decor, and pool/fitness area. Almost forgot, you do have to watch your receipt. Each time I have stayed I have been charged a different amount than reserved. The last time I did not argue I just left with the higher rate. No bueno, but other than that there's nothing wrong with this hotel........ its a wonderful place.

Room Tip: No restaurant but continental breakfast. It has variety

This is a relatively new and very nice Comfort Suites, and an excellent choice to stay when traveling through eastern Arkansas. Check in was quick, lobby was great, room was a very good size, everything was clean, breakfast was good, staff was very friendly.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We reviewed this property just one year ago and have stayed at this location several times since however have not published an update review. This is out latest review based upon our recent stayWe reviewed this hotel about a year ago and once again made it a stop on our way to Kentucky. The hotel property on the outside and in the lobby is still impressive with it cleanliness. We are comparing this hotel against others in the Forrest City area and still believe this is a five star hotel for ther area. The hotel is very clean. The front desk staff is courterous, professionable and helpful. The room was very comfortable and clean. everything was in order and working. We prefer a little harder bed mattress and the one we had was a mid-range between soft and hard.We have included serval recent photos taken during this recent stay. You can find less expensive hotels in the area however none will be cleaner.There is a free breakfast which we rate average. While the eating area was very clean and the staff very cordial, the food was just average. There is a free state newspaper in the dining room. This hotel does not receive USA Today and we were told no hotel in the areas receives USA Today. There is also a nice business arera just opposite the check in counter.Pleanty of free close in parking. Fast and accurate check out. Fresh free coffee available in the lobby throughout our stay.

Awesome hotel! This hotel is very clean and modern. The staff members are extremely nice. We only stayed here one night on April 4th-5th while driving home, but it was so nice, I wish we could have stayed longer. The room had two queen beds plus a pull-out couch, which was perfect for me, my husband and two teenagers. There was also a pool on site, but we didn't have time to use it. The breakfast was better than standard fare, with eggs, sausage, and biscuits also available. I highly recommend this hotel.

The two of us were extremely satisfied with all aspects of this relatively new hotel. We would not hesitate to return. The room was large and immaculately clean. The TV was well-located and easy to use. The morning's breakfast was was excellent in all respects.

This hotel came highly recommended, and it didn't disappoint. Every member of the staff was very friendly and went out of their way to make it a great stay. The rooms were large and clean, and the front desk staff offered us bottled water and snacks when we arrived and departed.

We decided to break up the drive for this part of our trip. Forrest City was located in just the right place for our overnight stay, so we booked the Comfort Suites.

This is a fairly new property with convenient access to I40. It is well maintained. The check in was good. The woman at the front desk was very helpful with recommendations about food, dessert (turns on the Exxon station has ice cream. Who knew?) and places to re-stock traveling supplies.

Our room was nice and large, as things go, with a small sofa, a small microwave, refrigerator, and a plethora of outlets for chargers etc. There is a digital room thermostat on the wall and not on the heater unit. This is good. There is a coffee maker in the room but the coffee machine in the lobby seems to be available 24/7. Yay! I had to push the button for stronger coffee to get what I considered normal.

Breakfast is pretty standard in Choice Hotel properties these days. The day we were there they had bacon, pre-made cheese omelets, and biscuits and gravy for hot offerings. You could also make your own waffle. I was pleased to see reduced calorie syrup, but sugar-free syrup would have been even better. There was also fresh fruit. I did not try the yogurt. This is about as good as it gets for the free breakfast in this sort of hotel.

The bathroom had a nice granite counter top. If you are a tall person you will find the shower head placement to be a plus. This is unusual in a hotel.

The indoor heated pool and hot tub area was well maintained and featured plenty of clean towels. I hadn't really planned to swim but the hot tub was very welcome after getting cold in the hotel laundry.

It was chilly when we were there and the halls were really cold. I had to do some laundry and the hotel laundry was even colder. I was wishing I had a hoodie but it was in the wash. I asked about this at the front desk because it was a noticeable deficiency in an otherwise first class operation. She replied that it was a green energy feature of the hotel. The lobby is heated and then the heat is supposed somehow be channeled up to the halls in the rest of the hotel. Well. This system is NOT working. It sounds like someone sold Choice Hotels a bill of goods on this system. I do not think the halls need to be toasty warm in the winter, but it felt like 60F in the halls and more like 55F in the laundry. Except for this is would easily be a five-star hotel.
