This is one of those on-the-road finds you look for. In the middle of a beautiful valley, this family-run motel is clean, straightforward, friendly, and well-priced. In the middle of the summer, the pool was the place to be. And it's so close to many different outdoor attractions. I'd stay again the next time I'm traveling anywhere near St. Louis.

I was traveling through the area and needed a place to stay for the night. I stopped at the Ft. Davidson Hotel and I'm glad I did. I was told that there was just one other place to stay in town so I didn't expect much. But, to my surprise it was a nice little place. The room was nice,... More

Our room was very small but very clean. The price was $81 plus the taxes which seems a little high for an older place like this but being it is the only place in town and nearly sold out I guess it was fair. The pool water was also very clean although it was too crowded when all the guests... More

Price and service were excellent. Front desk workers were helpful in giving us directions to our local destinations. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Kids enjoyed the pool area. Be advised restaurant is closed on Wednesday.

This is one of the cleanest motels I have stayed in. I would call it a motel because there are no hallways and one level. Shower had great pressure. Rooms were fairly quiet. Restaurant on site was very good and I would eat there every meal. Motel allows pets for $15 a day, and it was worth it.

Rate was $90 a night and not worth... More

My hubby and I stayed here while passing through the area two years in a row now and we just love it. The cabins are awesome and the owners are very accommodating. We plan to make this our stop over every time we pass through now.

Fort Davidson hotel was the perfect home base for exploring the Arcadia Valley and Ozarks. The price was reasonable, and the rooms comfortable and clean. Nothing fancy, just great value. The people running the place are kind and helpful, and they have a ton of information on the places to explore nearby. I'll be back in the future!

My wife called to make the reservation, and unfortunately we wouldn't be getting there until about 2:00 in the morning. The lady said that was no problem, just ring the bell. Even though I woke her up, she was very courteous and nice, and got us to our room quick. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. She... More
