It was very clean. Lots of amenities. Comfortable beds. Lots of great towels shampoo conditioner. It was much more than we expected. The decorations were very comfortable. Lake Ouachita and Mountain Harbor are the best family vacation destination.

We stayed in this motel before Mountain Harbor bought it. Theyve done a great job updating and cleaning it up in my opinion! We had a great 3 night stay. Had plenty of tiwels, toiletries and coffee every day. Was nice to hv minifridge for drinks and the beds were very comfy. For a motel close to the lake The... More

It was all good until I'm laying in bed sipping my coffee and feel something tickle my stomach, I flipped back the covers and there was a huge quarter sized spider crawling on me!!!! Left immediately.

It was awesome and accommodating. There's a beautiful spring behind the hotel. The beds are comfortable and the water is hot. It's conveniently located. And they thoroughly make sure you are comfortable and enjoying your stay. I felt at home and welcomed.

Found it quaint that we had to pick up the room keys at the gas station across the street. By street, I mean the hotel is RIGHT on the street. Very noisy with cars and loud motorcycles all night long. The air conditioner does not work that well and when you walk in the room there is an overwhelming odor... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a thorough review! We greatly value such terrific feedback! We were excited to implement several of your suggestions. The password has been changed from the default password on the wifi - which, as you pointed out, was ridiculously difficult to work with and needlessly complicated. Sometimes it takes a customer pointing... More

The room was as expected, a clean mom and pop room. The ladies who checked us in at the store across the street were friendly and helpful. What ruined my stay was my fixation on the wifi passwords. I have traveled to a hundred different hotels in and out of the country and have never been so frustrated with a... More

Good clean and easy access. Very nice people to work with over the phone and when we arrived at the location. If we needed something we called and it was delivered promptly. Check out was simple and easy, we felt very comfortable with the help and the people checking us in and out.

Arrived after office closed. Called the phone number that was clearly posted, and a representative arrived within minutes to complete check-in process, and couldn't be more helpful. The room was dated, but very clean and quaint.

Spent a weekend at the House at Joplin Inn with a few fellow mountain bikers to ride in the Ouachita Challenge. The house was ideal with three separate sleeping areas, a living room / fining room and kitchen. The only, very minor, inconvenience for us was the one bathroom.

The service was outstanding. They really do a good job! I recommend that you Stay in Room 5. They have a picture on the wall from the 1950's of the motel. The bacon they serve for breakfast across the street is awesome.
