This was a 10th year business destination. This year's visit prompts a refresh on my previous review as the hotel renovations are finally complete (3 year process), and they've left nothing out. Updated decor, including crown moulding, great, comfy beds and pillows you'll wanna take home, Kcup coffeemakers, flatscreen tvs, uptown soap and shampoos. Really! Y'all should be proud.

The lodge is very relaxing and pretty. The staff are friendly and the restaurant is great! We ate the Thanksgiving buffet while we were camping at the state park and it was delicious and well worth the money ($20 adults/ $10 kids which includes tip, tax, and beverage) lodge has a nice heated pool outdoors and indoor a smaller one.

After a few stays I feel safe giving a fair review of the lodge. While there are minuscule things I would change. I keep coming back and planning on coming back because it's a special place. It gets the job done and at a fair price. I come for the view and to get away from the busy city noises... More

We stayed there for 3 nights for hiking in the Ouachita NF. The room was small and old, but had a very nice view of the lake. The price was really reasonable. We enjoyed a short trails in the park too. Unfortunately, although the hotel had a lot of vacancy (almost empty), our room was on the first floor and... More

RV campsights are super nice. Internet works just fine. No TV stations on antenna. No Cable. Restrooms are super clean. Shopping is nearby and Hot Springs is not far. No Full hookups, just water and electric.

We were looking for a mid-way point between Memphis and Dallas and I had seen this place recommended on a forum on this site. We explored Hot Springs during the day and booked a lodge room here for the night. The place is just perfect and so relaxing. It appears to be a conference center with a dining room that... More

The most relaxing beautiful setting I have experienced anywhere. The lodge has an old school rustic setting with a good on site restaurant. Very clean facilty with good parking and easy drive into Hot Springs. The park itself has several options for recreation activities.

Arkansas has got it going on. Natural assets are the highlight accented by great accommodations. Romantic walks and more. Water sports, horseback riding and cycling all at a state park! Crazy. Had dinner in lodge restaurant delighted by panoramic lake view. Biker friendly parking. The pool was so welcomed after a full day of riding. Will definitely be going back.

Quiet, had the pool to ourselves and the view was beautiful. Would recommend updating air conditioner as it is really loud and probably time for a face lift. That being said, it was very clean and staff was great so we would still recommend. Restaurant on sight was fine although got the wrong order and there was only one other... More
