When I decide to go diamond hunting, I stay at the Comfort Suites in Texarkana, Arkansas. The rooms are all suites, they are very clean, and the breakfast had lots of variety. It has an indoor pool, which I always use. It sits behind a Cracker Barrel and a Mexican food chain, so you can walk across the parking lot and have a real breakfast , lunch or dinner. Other very nice business hotels and restaurants are very close. It is right off the highway and there was lots of construction, but it was easy to navigate.
The Crater of Diamonds State Park is only about 45 minutes from there. It is open all year round for about $8-9 per person. There is also a very nice pool at the entrance, but it is closed for the winter. It is appx 27 miles to the exit at Hope, Arkansas, and then about 25 minutes winding through Washington County, the oldest county in Arkansas, dated at 1836. The original buildings are still being used to this day. I am planning a trip now.
