“Tremendous value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Our family spent the night here on a drive from Texas to Michigan, and were quite pleased. For the price, accommodations like this cannot be beat; the rooms were clean and quiet and the couple who owns and operates the inn were as friendly as could be (we met the mister on check-in, and the missus on our way out).

We were happy enough with the Mount Ida Inn that on our return drive we are re-routing through Mt. Ida so we can stay here for another night - both because it is now a known good quality, and because it is a local and small business that is well worth supporting.

So nice being able to really talk to the employees/owners. I was not treated like another room number. How pleasant it was to step back in time when things did not move so fast and people really cared about each other. And the price can't be beat. My little dog and I rested well at Royal Oak Inn. No reason to stay any other place when I go back to that area.

Room Tip: Rooms tend to be dark. It is a personal thing.

We spent the night here planning to go crystal mining in the morning. The owners were very accomodating, even cleaned a room for us as we arrived early in the day. The beds were comfortable and we were able to get both a queen and a full in one room. The pool looked great. Others were enjoying it, we just didn't feel like it. When we checked in, they handed us a package of information on the local area and answered our questions easily. Would definitely stay here again. Prices were very reasonable. The owners were awesome - they found our son's wallet under a bed and called us, then mailed it immediately. It arrived fully intact. We were very happy with their helpfulness as our son wasn't sure when he had last seen it.

Room Tip: Rooms have differing sizes of beds so ask for what best fits your needs.

As other reviewers have said, this is not a fancy hotel by any means, but the people are nice, and the place is well-maintained. The pool is nice too.

This was my first trip ever to Mt Ida. We were visiting family, and they suggested the Royal Oak Inn. We loved it. The owners were super friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean, affordable and comfortable.

We took a day trip into Hot Springs. That was not a bad drive at all. The motel is also near the Ouachita National Forest and all it has to offer.

We will never stay anywhere else when we visit Mt Ida.

The staff / owner of this motel were very friendly and seem to be taking good care of this older property. It's not a luxurious stay by any means, but well kept, tidy, and has all the basic necessities. If you're in Mt. Ida, I'd recommend.
