We really enjoyed our stay at the Royal Oak Inn. Family-owned, it's like staying with friends. They are pet-friendly, and do not charge extra for animal guests. The owners are very accommodating. When Randy found out we were going to the crystal mines, he told us about reports from recent guest. Since we were vacillating on which ones to visit,... More

As previous reviews mentioned it was clean and staff was friendly. It served as a great place to rest our heads after mountain biking all day and I would stay again. They left plenty of towels and coffee and even had a small fridge and microwave. More then I expected at the rate they offered and I'm so thankful for... More

We have stayed here several times over the last 9 years. Rooms are on the smaller side, but kept up nicely. The owners are very friendly too. The prices for the rooms are great. Good place to stay if you are going to Lake Ouachita too.

I stayed here with a friend last year. If you are tired of big, impersonal hotels or you are just tired, Royal Oak Inn is the place to stay! From the moment you walk into the office, you are greeted with a smile and down-to-earth Friendliness! The price is reasonable and the rooms are clean! The pool sparkles, inviting a... More

We stayed a night on a road trip home, planning to mine crystals in Mt. Ida the next day. The room was spacious and clean, and the water pressure in the shower was good. Some quibbles: the hotel wifi signal was too weak to work in our room, and the air conditioner kept blowing the flimsy curtains right above it... More

We stay there when visiting family. It has been remodeled and has Wi-Fi. Owners are very cordial and American! When going crystal mining, this motel is very convenient. Several restaurants, very good, are nearby.

The staff was very friendly and the price was great. The bathroom sink and toilet were spotless. The tub faucet had mildew in the handles. The room was very clean, but the heavy smell of what I think was carpet deodorizer gave me a headache. The coffee pot was stored on the floor under the desk...not sure why. The bed... More
