Happy Hollow is a great, economical choice when visiting Hot Springs. The location is very convenient to the downtown attractions. The rooms have recently been renovated and are very modern and comfortable. Beds were great. Shower worked well. Great Wi-Fi connection. Definitely give it a try on your next visit!

A throw back place to the 60s with a good price and clean, comfortable room. Nothing fancy but location excellent for walking to main street, bath houses, mountain tower and nearby spring water to fill water bottles. Inn keeper extremely helpful for recommendations for eating, site seeing, etc. Nice quiet place to sit outside and take in the scenery and...

I have stayed at this motel in years past. The updates are really nice. The price & location is perfect and the manager, Michael was really helpful. The bed was super comfy and we had a small room but I didn't think it was small at all.

Had a blast. Great room, location and price. Management was friendly and helpful. Perfect place to stay for a night out downtown or a run in the national park. Cheap shuttle to Oaklawn for the Arlington next door. Coming back.

New ownership/management have invested in refreshing the rooms and providing top-notch customer service to a classic motel. It's an excellent place for larger groups as well - the courtyard is inviting for relaxing conversation with a view of the national park or a pizza party!

The Happy Hollow Motel was just what we needed!! My family (husband, daughter, son in law, myself and two Grandson's) stayed 3 nights at the Happy Hollow and it was great. We had two rooms which were next to each other and as it turned out we shared a patio, on each side of the patio was a partial wall...

The Happy Hollow is a mom-and-pop motel currently being upgraded by the innkeeper, who was very friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable and even had a nice kitchenette. I enjoy the extra space of a large room and you couldn't beat the price. A big place is that it has both easy access to the mountain drive and is...

We wanted to be in the historic district at an affordable price. Found It! SUPER CLEAN. 1/2 block of Bathhouse Row, walking distance to EVERYTHING downtown. This place is soo unique! Not updated at all, feel like living in the 50's era, Quirky, but cool!!! I'll be back next year!

Came up for a weekend away. The location is great and the staff was very accommodating. The room was very clean and charming. This hotel has a lot of charm. If you need a little more space and want a very cool room ask for the upstairs room with the separate living area. I can't remember the number they will...
