We stayed one night to attend a business meeting the next morning in El Dorado. We flew into Little Rock and drove to town. This hotel was located in the outskirts of El Dorado so it’s away from shops or restaurants. But because of that it likely offered me a good night’s sleep (not that El Dorado’s night life is bustling). As far as I saw from the outside, this hotel along with the Super 8 motel next door are the newer accommodations available in the town.
The small check in lobby was adjacent to the breakfast area and offering welcome cookies (chocolate chip?). While we were checking in, we heard happy children’s voice and laughter from their indoor swimming pool across from the lobby.
As soon as we entered the room, we noticed odor (chemical/medicine type) – it was coming from the bathroom. But we got accustomed to the odor with in 15 minutes or so and forgot about it. My husband’s guess was that it was a smell from a septic tank but he wasn’t sure. I am usually sensitive to smell but it didn’t cause me any a headache or nausea fortunately.
The room size was a bit smaller considering the location but adequate. Free Wi-Fi was offered and the connection was easy and fast according to my husband.
This hotel offered us reasonable accommodations in this small town. Although the odor didn’t bother me too much, it did alarm me and I would have preferred that it wasn’t there – so I am giving it 3 instead of 4.
