This hotel is very clean, offers breakfast, and is conveniently located. It's near the freeway but you don't hear any road noise. there's a Dominos pizza nearby that delivers to the rooms too. Highly recommend it if you need a room in the area.

There was a variety of items on the breakfast menu which included pancakes out of a machine very interesting. We ate at a steakhouse "Big Jake's cattle company" which i highly recommend, the food was excellent... More

I've stayed at a lot of hotels, but this one was simply one of the best. From the management down to every single employee that I interacted with, it was a fantastic stay. As far as accommodations, the beds were very comfortable. The internet was very fast, even when streaming during primetime (yeah, I know....not supposed to stream). I just... More

Had work in Fort Smith and company made lodging arrangements. Couldn't have been more pleased. Nice big room with all needed amenities. Good breakfast, lobby, pool, and fitness center. Can't go wrong with this Holiday In. Great for a short business stay or if you are traveling down I40.

This HI is a little bit down the street but is still in a very convenient location. The room was good and very clean. Breakfast was a little late @ 7am. Some of us need to get on the road asap. And the breakfast attendant was in a t-shirt and sweats? I thought she was a guest that rushed down... More

Nice clean rooms. My only problem was that we arrived late and the parking lot was full. Didn't seem to be enough parking for all their guests. There was an empty lot next door so we were able to park there after unloading.

The best beds I have ever slept in! I'd come back to sleep in the beds alone. Hotel was clean and inviting, staff is great and let me remind you about the beds. :) Close to lots of food and grocery spots. Right next to a movie theatre and easy access to I-40.

I was in the Van Buren area for four days. I always enjoy my stay at HI properties. This one did not disappoint. Staff was friendly and accommodating room was clean, bed was comfortable. Breakfast was as expected. It was convenient to interstate but also away from traffic noise. My hotel of choice when in the area
