Detailed Reviews
A Tripadvisor Member wrote a review Aug 2011

Eight of us stayed two nights at the Big Spring Road Motel. Everything was great! Jim, the owner, was pleasant and very helpful. We asked for information on what we should see while we were there, and questions about the river. Jim could answer them all. The second night he came over while we were all sitting outside on the front deck to check on us and make sure everything was o.k. There is Jim's Pitt Stop right on the property. You can get pizza, burgers, chicken strips, fries and onion rings, plus alcohol. They have a DJ/Karoke on Fridays and Saturdays, two pool tables if you are interested.
The rooms were clean and big enough. There is a small refrigerator and a microwave in every room, but no coffee pot, so if you want coffee you need to bring your pot from home like we did. There is no continental breakfast or fitness center. Just a down home country motel, but a good one.
Also, the motel is close to mostly everything making it a central location.
Would definitely stay there again.

Big Spring Road Motel is exactly what you would expect from a road side motel. Nothing extravagant but it had decent beds, clean and quiet(considering the bar was just across the way, which was convenient). It was very hot when we were there and I was worried the air conditioner wouldn't keep up but it kept the room nice and cool. They provide soap but no shampoo or hair driers so don't forget to bring them. They had free Wi-Fi but it was very slow. My only suggestion is that they get bigger towels. The staff was very friendly. I would stay there again.

Room was clean and beds were comfortable: we had four people in a double room. Able to park right outside the room, and there is a porch with tables and chairs outside. A microwave and small fridge are included. They even went out and purchased a coffee maker for our room, although you have to bring your own coffee and filters. The owners are very nice! Right now, they are only accepting cash payments, and they tell you that when making a reservation. I would certainly stay there again.

My buddy and I stayed there in the middle of June and we would definitely stay there again. The rooms were fine and clean and the food at the bar was great. An added plus was the location of the bar/resturant which was just across the parking lot. The location was perfect for what we wanted which was fish and float on the Current river. The folks running the place could not be nicer and more friendlier!

I was a little leery after reading some of the reviews from 2016. However, we had a great stay! No bugs, Comfortable bed, clean room and bathroom, working ac and friendly staff! Also has a fridge and microwave in the room.
We would definitely stay here again! We had a blast at the bar that's on the property. They have billiards, darts, gaming machines (entertainment only) and a great spot for dancing!

We booked our family reunion at Big Spring Motel in Van Buren, Mo this year, due to central location. What a great time we had. We booked the entire motel which has about 12 rooms in all for our entire family. The owners were so nice. They arranged our float trip, allowed us to have full run of the property with our kids playing on the lovely grounds and we even put up a screened tent for our cookout. Some of us even frequented the lounge located on the property and had a wonderful time kicking up our heels with the locals. Big Spring Motel is a small motel and not a luxury motel, but the price was right, it was clean, no bugs, and had all we needed to make this a comfortable reunion. Our family is deciding on making this an annual event.

Country vacation
I found this hotel thru word of mouth. If you are looking for a place to get back to nature, this is the place. Clean and affordable.
Nice lounge on the property for a relaxing night of fun. Close to the current river.

Less than what you pay for
I am right now in the motel and it is a nightmare maybe because it is Summer. The room is full of insect since it is made of wood . It is cabinet . There was no shampo in the bath room and no coffe maker and hair dryer . Also, the bed is stinky . It smells like someone has just urinate on it!!!!very bad smell. The size room is good but it need a lot of care to be better. The price is more that what you get from the motel and there is no breakfast !!!i do mt recommended unless the owner clean it very carefully. You might say that it is a motel and I should not expect too much from it but it is less than what you pay for!!!!

You should call to find out. Their website isn't very informative in that regard.
