My husband and I stayed here over the weekend after seeing the reviews on this site. We're so glad we did! For me, the most important thing is that my room is CLEAN. The room and bathroom were very clean, the sheets where clean and fresh, and the pillows were clean and very comfortable. Dakota, the manager, made sure we were completely satisfied with our stay before we left. The price was very reasonable and it included breakfast (we chose to sleep in so we didn't try the breakfast, though). It's not located downtown, but it's only a very short drive away. We'll definitely stay here next time!

When is a chain hotel not a chain hotel? When it's the Swiss Holiday Resort in Eureka Springs, AR.
We came to Eureka Springs to visit our daughter who was at Opera in The Ozarks and we were just looking for a place to stay. We chose this place because it seemed well located, which it was...
Surprise!
Not only was the room clean and neat, it was tastefully decorated as well. The property was large, piney and green...with a bonus of a big pool with a hot tub/whirlpool.
Having said all this about the place, what really made the experience for us was the staff. Led by Dakoda, who could not have been more friendly, knowledgable about the area and helpful...even jumped our battery when we couldn't start the car!
The rest of the staff was always amiable and helpful, including the friendly head housekeeper, Sherri.

Stayed in rear (B) apartments. Thought that would give us some quiet away from the road. Beautiful woods behind us. Opening the door we found dead bugs on floor, in tub and in our bed. The room probably had not been occupied for a while since the low census of tourists was evident everywhere. Reservations were made 1 or 2 days in advance which was plenty of time to recheck the room by staff.
Waking up at 4:30 to get out we enjoyed the cardinals , robins and peewees calling at daybreak.

Thank you so much for your valuable feedback. We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our rooms, and I have to say that this is the first time that this type of a situation has been reported to us. Upon reading your review I immediately tried to verify the problem, and could not as the room had been cleaned already, and there were no bugs in the room. Nevertheless, I updated the training of our housekeeping staff to make sure that this sort of thing does not happen again. My only regret is that you did not inform the front desk of the situation, I would have gladly moved you to a room that you were satisfied with. We apologize for your inconvenience, and would love an opportunity to earn your business back.

I called many hotels in Eureka Springs and Rodeway was the one of the few that hit all the marks necessary for a successful rally. I had to make sure I had a nice enough hotel picked out. I had riders arriving from Canada, Arizona, Florida, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina. All over!

Dakota, the group event coordinator, knew what we needed and exceeded everything I asked for by leaps and bounds. Finally a hotel that wasn't clueless about the expectations for a motorcycle group.

A true gem in the rough mess of hotels all over Eureka Springs.

We stayed at this hotel during a Spyder ralley in Eureka Springs. When I saw the pictures on their web site I was a little bit worried about staying there. As a single female traveler I am not too keen on staying in hotels with an exterior door. Also, the pictures made the hotel look very old. Well, it does look old from the outside, but the interior has been updated very nicely. The locks on the doors were very secure and there weren't any undersirables hanging out there. Our first room had a microwave and fridge. The fridge kept our drinks nice and cool. The 2nd night our room did not have a microwave but it had a fridge and the room was more than up to par. The beds and pillows were comfortable. The staff was great, the rooms were clean and the hotel was in walking distance to the Pizza Hut and other restaurants. There is a gas station right across the street which is very convenient for late night snacks and of course, gas. The historic downtown area is only a few miles away. It's a very convenient location and hotel for the price and I will stay here again.

Room Tip: The rooms face the street but we could not hear the road noise.
