“Brand new, awesome suite, great value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here after watching the dog races in West Memphis, AR on our way back to Little Rock. The location of this property with perfect for our needs. We were given a free upgrade to a suite which was nice to give us more room for our stroller and hotel-provided crib. Nice big flat screen TV with great satellite channel selection. Breakfast was standard for HIE, no pancake machine or waffle maker. We didn't use the pool, but it looked nice. I don't think there was a hot tub. There are gas stations and restaurants very close by. I would definitely stay here again if I needed a room in the area.

We arrived late to a clean hotel. The over night colleague at the desk was very efficient and friendly. The room was clean, but we were kept awake because of the noise from the room next door. It makes me wonder about the sound proofing of the rooms. The breakfast coffee in standard hotel coffee and not as rich as other hotel coffee I have enjoyed.

pretty new, so in great condition. Very friendly, relaxed, accommodating service. Due to a problem with a room thermostat and I was upgraded to another room, no problem. Nice pool, too. Room size better than other more expensive Holiday Inns, and at Forrest City the room has a fridge and zapper, too.

We pulled into to this Hotel after a long drive from Chicago to Houston. Forrest City has always been our halfway point. When I booked this hotel for the night I just didn't remember seeing it before but decided to check a fresh new place. We were a party of 4 adults and 2 very energetic little boys. we needed a clean, indoor pool to run a little energy off these kids and this fit the bill. I've found after a little exercise and a good (close by) meal everyone sleeps better. Morning breakfast was fresh, pleasantly presented and plentiful, not to mention free. Oh yes, we'll stay here again.

This hotel was built in November and it has been well maintained. We arrived at midnight and the check-in was quick and painless. I requested a room with two queen beds but only needed one bed. At check-in I asked for a free upgrade and was immediately upgraded-with a smile and for free. The front desk person offered extra pillows, blankets and towels before we even went up to our room. This is a service I appreciated! The hotel has a good selection of food products for sale and the prices are reasonable. Our suite had a refrigerator flat screen television, sofa-bed, semi-private partition between the bed and living room. The bathroom was very spacious and water pressure was great. Soaps were not cheap and neither were the towels. The bedding sheets were high thread counts and the pillows were soft and plump. Our in room coffee and tea assortment was good. The entire room was clean and the smell was that of a clean and fresh room.

The fitness center is equipped with Raptor machines. The swimming pool is heated (we did not use the pool). The breakfast was a hot buffet style breakfast and was opened until 9:30. When we checked in we asked for a late check out, and a late check out is what we received--12:00 pm is when we woke up! There were no phone calls, no house keeping calling and no extra charges.

Our experience at this Holiday Inn was very positive. Whenever we must travel through Forrest City again, we will plan on staying in Forrest City.

The decor may be a bit overwhelming initially but this motel has all the usual Holiday Inn Express amenities, great breakfast, and pleasant staff. It also has a fun Mexican restaurant across the street (Don Jose). This was our our second stay and we'll be back again!

We stayed two nights in a suite at the Holiday Inn Express in Forrest City, and it was excellent! Our suite was so large, I actually paced it off and it was about 40' deep, and 15" wide. The bedding was very good and comfortable as well. The hot buffet breakfast had biscuits and gravy, as well as sausage, eggs, cereal, fruit, and a pancake machine (had never seen one of those before). Being a TV addict, their number of TV channels could have been better. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
