Very nice. Older remodeled and small, very clean rooms. Decently priced and very, very nice people in office. Will stay here again if in this area. This keeps asking for more. I've said what I wanted to. Lol. Beginning to feel like I'm in the fourth grade, counting sentences, spaces and letters. Hope this is enough

Called ahead and booked a regular room. A convention had taken up all the regular rooms when I arrived but I was upgraded to a suite at no extra charge. The wonderful owner Liz was warm and such a sweetheart. The room was VERY clean. The outdated decor made me feel a little nostalgic and I loved it. Was treated...

I was there over 2 weeks for work, it was in the winter, the room stayed warm, but I had to have them move me since the 1st room had no heater in it. the place is very old and I think hardly keeping the doors open, but it's clean and they do a good job cleaning the rooms. They...

I choose this hotel because it is close to the crystal mines where I like to dig around Mt Ida. The ladies that work here are down home friendly and I felt welcomed. Although it is near the highway, the car sounds did not bother me and I slept with the window open at night. Every evening I could hear...

very clean, good amenities, Had a microwave, refrig and coffee pot in the room. Biggest downfall - the beds were NOT comfortable. Good location....lots of rules posted everywhere. TV is very small - my computer screen is bigger. But most definitely a decent place to hang your hat for a couple of days. Restaurant opened at 10 am so a...

We stayed a week in a comfortable, quiet and fully provisioned room. The pool and restaurant were just steps away. Compared in price and value to other accommodations in the area, this place is tops on my list. It is only a few miles from 'town' and the lake which is gorgeous.

We enjoyed our stay at the Crystal Inn. It is dated and old school but we like the nostalgic feeling if gave us. It reminded us of those family vacations we took when we were kids. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room was very clean. Furnishings are dated, however, the microwave, small coffee maker, TV, and refrigerator are...

I can't say enough wonderful things about The Crystal Inn. The staff is unbelievable, they go out of their way to take pride in the Crystal Inn. The rooms are spotless, their pool is great, especially after a long day of mining. The only motel I've ever been to that offers floating loungers for the pool, the staff are all...

I stopped in southern Arkansas and let my GPS (no smart phone) look for motels about where I wanted to stop for the day. The Crystal Inn was on the way so I called for a room. After I heard how cheap it was, I was expecting a run down dive, but when I got there, I found a nice,...

The best part of my stay here was the value price for the fairly clean room. The room is basic: bed, small bathroom, working TV (limited cable channels), small refrigerator and microwave. There are no phones in rooms ( good luck finding a working pay phone in the area for those who don't use cell phones). While the property is...

“Ask where the WIFi is and get the closest room if internet is critical to you. In the middle, it comes and goes.”

“they have all different size rooms. Have stayed in several different ones - my fav is the "big" room. Small apartment actually. The rates can't be beat. It's a feeling of home to me.”
