“Just ok”
Reviewed December 1, 2011

Finding a hotel in downtown North Little Rock is always a bit of a challenge. None are really that great. Having grown up in the town and returning for a weekend visit, I knew this hotel was not in the safest location. It was, however, a good price and near where I needed to be. The breakfast was fine and the room was just ok. The front desk check-in took about 20 minutes, so much too long, especially considering I was the only one checking in. Just be wary of being alert in this area of town when you walk to and from your car and when you go out at night. Otherwise, the price/value make this an ok hotel to choose.

My husband and I needed a place to stay for one night after our movers packed and moved us and we did not want to spend $150 for one night in a regular hotel. We live in North Little Rock and chose the Best Western knowing it was one of the newest hotels in the area and was only about $90. No, the area south of the hotel is not the safest, but the hotel parking lot has many cameras and we were not worried in the least bit. As soon as we walked in, I knew we made the best decision! The lobby was very stylish and welcoming. Our room was even more amazing. Very contemporary, spacious and clean! Loved the rainfall showerhead and the mini bar area. The bed was firm but very comfortable. This hotel is a perfect choice for travelers needing a comfortable place to stay. I wish I had checked this hotel out sooner so I could suggest it to visiting family members. Also, the breakfast is very decent, and there is a fantastic dining area for guests!

This hotel was one of the best we have stayed at....anywhere. We have been on a long vacation, visiting 8 states and a number of cities. This was a wonderful place, very friendly and accomodating of our family. They even made extra cookies for the kids because we checked in a little after the afternoon snack period. The breakfast was very good, except they were lacking some fresh fruit. The room was large and came with a microwave and refigerator. The lobby decor was modern and new, and the tv was a wonderful escape from the teen turmoil for the remote, upstairs.

This was a stressful trip, bringing my mother to Little Rock for doctor appointments. We stayed in a different motel last night and didn't get much sleep so we searched for a better one. By chance we came upon this one and it was an excellent choice. From the moment we walked we knew we would be happy. The front desk staff was so nice and the manager, Pam, was especially helpful. We will be returning to Little Rock and will definitely visit this hotel.

FYI...the ratings above and below should be EXCELLENT, all the dots highlighted and I couldn't get it to change.

I booked a large group of rooms (20+) here for a soccer tournament. The manager insisted we make all arrangements over the phone (which should have been a clue!) and never sent me a confirming email. When we arrived, families who had been promised connecting rooms were given rooms on entirely different floors. The crib which had been reserved a month in advance was not in the room, and when I inquired I was met with a rude attendant who said she'd go look for a crib. No surprise- I never heard back. The manager said the coaches could have a few suites at the price of the regular room, but when we checked in there were no suites. I initially made contact with her through a group hotel booking site, but she asked me to deal with her directly instead (another clue she was unethical!), but she promised to give me the same rate and discount- including one free coaches room for the 2 nights. Guess what?! She refused to give me the free room! I had already promised the free room to our coach so I ended up paying for the extra room out of my own pocket to avoid embarrassment. Two families made reservations for 2 nights, but later cancelled the first night before the cancellation deadline. When they arrived, the hotel had actually cancelled the second night instead of the first and insisted on charging them for both nights. To top it all off, this hotel is in a very rough part of town and the rates are not particularly competitive. Run away! Stay anywhere else but here!
