“Modest accommodation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

I stayed one night at this place.
The rooms are okay size and fairly clean. Bed was great and I slept well.
We had a lot of mosquitoes, but maybe that depends on the season.
Breakfast was good and I can recommend the waffles :)

My wife and I stayed at the Best Western Colony Inn in Forrest City, Arkansas and our Room was very comfortable very roomy for the cost and the staff were professional and very friendly. The hotel was very easy to find and parking was excellent. The breakfast was better that I had expected.

I'm a truck driver and sometime its hard to find a decent motel that has truck parking. Or has any place in walking distance to eat. But this one has it all. And every time I'm in that area tha is where I'm staying.

Comfortable Beds Make you reservations early if you have an elderly passenger travelling with you or travelling with a pet, because you do not want to have to go upstairs to your room after dark, not good or no lighting in the stairwell. Also check your bathroom and make sure the housekeeping staff didn't leave you a present from the previous customer in the shower (bar of soap)

I have made a habit out of visiting Best Western Hotels when possible on my personal travels and I have to say I was pretty sketched out by this place. The first room we had was infested by flies. There were at least 20 dead flies on the window sill and many more lives ones in the room to the point where I started looking for whatever was dead in the room. After switching rooms to a room that had fewer flies, I moved the dresser in front of the door in order to get a good night sleep because the door didn't seem to close right. The service was friendly enough, but the quality of the facilities is terrible.

This is an older hotel and since it is right on I40 it gets lots of traffic. The staff was very professional, friendly, and helpful.

The rooms are a bit old but that was expected. The room was clean and the WiFi and Television worked correctly.

I did notice that the pool looked grand, I did not get a chance to go for a swim. The breakfast room was very well done. We ate supper across the street at a nice restaurant.

Room Tip: We can not say for sure but the rooms appeared to be uniform.

We have a Best Western Rewards card which we planned to accumulate points on when we stopped at the Best Western Colony Inn in Forrest City, Arkansas. Tired and wanting to just get into a room we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of service we received and the quality of the room. It was very comfortable with available Wi-Fi service. Very Clean, very nice looking rooms with lots of information available on the area. We were VERY Impressed by the quality of service and items offered the next morning for breakfast. Instead of paper/styrofoam plates we ate off of good china with REAL coffee cups. The selection included biscuits and gravy, eggs, waffles, bacon and sausage patties, cereal, fruit, juice, milk, toast, muffins and a multiple of other items. After we finished the Lady that ran that section came over and removed our dishes for us and we had a nice conversation. I would 100% recommend a stop at this facility if in the Forrest City Arkansas area.

Room Tip: We asked for a downstairs, non smoking room and got a VERY Clean, very well maintained room.
