The most comfortable bed I've slept in. I was too tired to drive on to Hot Springs, Ar. and decided to stop. Best thing I did for a refreshing night of sleep to start the next day. If I ever have the opportunity to stop here again, I definitely will.

Comfortable stay, clean room. Advantage of exterior door is ease of unloading. Disadvantage is truck drivers laughing and talking outside at 5am as they hit the road. Not a problem for heavy sleepers in my family only me. Breakfast was standard fare for Best Western. Last night on the road for awhile so utterly delightful.

Hotel was updated; clean and was very stylish! Comfy bed too! The only problem was that room 100 had a loud heater; we could not hear the tv because the heater was loud. I thought it was a semi truck running out side but come to find out it was the heater running. Tall guys watch out for shower rod...

This hotel is located right off the interstate for easy access. It is clean and comfortable. The staff was very nice. The breakfast wasn't quite as good as the BW we stayed at the previous night, but no biggie. The room was updated, clean and oversized. Loved the outside access to the rooms, so much easier than hallways.

We were surprised at how nice the rooms were inside. Everything was remodeled and very clean. Rooms were nice sized and comfortable. We could park right outside our room making it convenient for bringing in our luggage.

Best Western was amazing!! The staff was extremely friendly!! Breakfast had a variety of hot foods and the room was extremely clean! Great for dogs as there is a huge grassy area to walk the dog Location is central to many restaurants without all the noise of traffic. Will definitely stay there again on our next roadtrip!
