Conveniently located off I-40. Nothing outstanding in particular, just a decent-sized room with a nice bathroom, hot shower, HD TV, microwave and fridge. Their hot breakfast offers some decent choices. If I was ever back here, I'd stay again.

Reviewed 27 February 2017

This is a wonderful little hotel with a great price. The rooms are clean and feature their own outer doors - giving you great privacy, and making it very easy for pet owners who need to walk their pets! (And if you are a Best Western Reward Member, the hotel waves their usual $10/night pet fee!). The hotel includes a...

The environment was very nice, rooms were very nice and clean. Breakfast was good. Staff was very nice plenty of places to eat around you. The pool was not up and running when I was there. I would stay again and they do give military discounts.

A few years ago en route from Santa Fe to Memphis we made the mistake of booking a hotel room in Fort Smith, thinking it would be a convenient stop along the way. This is not meant as a knock on Fort Smith, because it appears to be a very nice little city, but it is NOT right on I-40....

It was a nice hotel, the room was clean. The bed and pillows weren't the most comfortable, but the room in general was clean and nice. I wish hotels cared about their customers enough for healthier foods with multi grains and less sugar, but it did have a hot meal which was okay. (The meat was very over done and...

This is a convenient motel off I-40 north of Little Rock. It has been totally remodeled in the past couple years and looks great. It is clean and with large rooms. Service is quite efficient and the breakfast service convenient with good selection. The rooms are reminiscent of older facilities because we accessed from the outside, but that wasn't a...

Nothing special. No frills. Just a simple roadside hotel with an easy off/back on the interstate. Room seemed stale. Tub in bathroom not really clean. Otherwise okay. TV worked. Comfortable bed although the pillows were way too big. Fought with them to get comfortable.
