“Forrest City”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

The motel is outdated but it was very clean and the food served at breakfast was very good. We wished they had some kind of meat on the menu though. Didn't feel it was the safest area but then we aren't out late at night so felt safe locked in our room.

We happened to stay at this location because we had been on he road a long time and need at rest for the night.
The hotel is very old and has a strange layout with 3 buildings in different locations.
Our room was clean but very shabby looking. The skirt around the bed had holes and looked very worn. The door frame to the bathroom was broken as if someone had been stuck inside the shower area and had to pry the door open. Glad my husband set his phone alarm, because the alarm clock never worked.
We were given vouchers for breakfast ( have never seen this done at any other hotel) Maybe it is the keep all the truckers who were parked outside our room from getting a free meal?
If you need a place to lay your head for a night stay, but for no other reason keep going down the road.

It' s true this is a older motel and yes some of the areas are outdated, but we found our room to be very spacious , clean and our bed was very comfortable. The staff was very helpful. Yes we had to walk to another building for breakfast , however,the eating area was very large and they had a nice selection. Here also the staff was pleasant. With our AAA discount we came in at $71 which I consider a real bargin. We make this trip through Forrest City several time a year and I will stop here again

Hotel is in an odd location and consists of 3 seperate buildings. Narrow entrance to office. Had to walk across parking lot to breakfast area, one ice machine, which was out of order, in third building which was the laundry room.

Sorry to say, this place was a disappointment. First off, it has the ugliest entrance I've yet to see for a BW, & it's definitely not kept up well; plus, a strange layout. We had to walk quite a ways from our room across the parking lot to have breakfast. The food would have been much better if it had been hot & not room temperature, & grits were runny. Coffee was ok, but not great. Staff were all friendly. Best part of this stay was a great bed. Wifi was annoying, as it would come & go, & door key didn't want to work half of the time.

The check-in was quick but the lobby seemed cluttered and the tv had wrestling on with the volume up loud. The hotel did not present the 'safe' feeling I would expect at a Best Western.

Our room was old and not updated. The walls were obviously patched and painted years before. The decor had not been updated. Plugs with wires were exposed. There was no desk and no additional plugs for a phone or computer. The room had a 'dirty' feel to it.

The bath room had dirty walls and trim. The bathtub was peeling in 2 places. The bathroom also had a 'dirty' feel to it.

The ice machine was FILTHY with dirt and mold around the dispenser. I wonder what the inside looks like.. I bought ice at the store in front of the hotel.

The breakfast was good. There were 2 ladies who handled the breakfast room. They were very nice.

Room Tip: Rooms at another hotel may be better...

Have stayed here before. Nice buffet next door at Sawmill Buffet. Room was adequate; no real problems encountered. Lotta of road construction on Interstate off and on ramps. Cost bit high. Would stay again if traveling through this location.
