“Most everything was very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

So this was our second night in Eureka Springs and knew we were going to pay more on a Friday before the Labor Day weekend. Let's start with the positives. Charming rooms and loved the decor, wood floors and woodsy feel of the place. Room was spacious, AC worked pretty well, bathroom was clean and bed was comfortable. The door was locked to the office when we arrived after a full day of riding our bike - but we arrived ahead of "normal" check in hours. Other two hotels on this trip was the same deal, but we were able to get into our room early at both of the others. So we check in when we were finally able and have a room on 2nd floor - requested first floor, but whatever. Lady who checked us in made quite the deal over their 'continental breakfast and trays so you could take to the patio or back to your room'. Okay, good to know. So it's 100+ degrees on Aug 30 - we're hot, very sweaty, full of sunscreen and decide to shower. Once we cooled off, I went down to the front desk to ask for another set of bath towels. She looked at me like I was going to destroy the planet by this request and asked "you're not going to use them over?" I'm sorry - for $100 for one night and the fact that I was covered in sweat and sunscreen - no, I'm NOT going to use them over and may I please have another set of bath towels. Okay, I left the sarcasm out of my statement but politely asked if we could have a new set of towels. Really??? The next morning we were up early, showered and got things organized. It was probably 7am when I went down to find this 'continental breakfast with nice trays to take to the patio or back to your room' didn't even start until the office opened at 8:00am. So much for a cup a joe before we hit the road back to KS. Like I said, cute and very clean rooms so still giving them pretty high marks.

We stayed at this small hotel after dropping out daughter off at college. For the price we paid we didn't expect the Ritz but we were pleasantly surprised at how nice and clean things were. The room was decorated in a country style lodge I guess you could say. It was very comfortable and a perfect getaway for what we needed. On top of that, the owners were extremely friendly and helpful for anything we needed. If you're stopping through, I would definitely recommend staying here. It's with every penny.

The rooms were very clean and comfortable. It was nice to have hardwood floors instead of carpet. Really adds to the cleanliness! The owners were very nice people, and we felt "at home" during our stay. We loved the cabin like decor :)

The room was nice, very clean and the staff was super nice. The beds were super soft and the linens were above most hotel quality. One of our complaints is completely our fault for not checking that there was no fridge in the room. Traveling with a baby has made that kind of necessary. The only other complaints we had were the lack of light in the room and the thin walls. Our first night the noise was not a problem but the second night the neighbors accidently woke the baby. They were not doing anything particularly loud though. Overall, I would definitely recommend this place to a couple not traveling with a small child.

Our room was spotless, the bed was super comfortable, and the location was convenient for our purposes. Sonia and Robert go out of their way to make guests feel welcome. Our one complaint was that the A/C was past its prime and couldn't adequately cool the room to our satisfaction.

Our host was exceptionally accommodating to our needs. We were given a map upon check in, and he explained all the places worth visiting. Anything we asked for, he was happy to help. He even called to help get us dinner reservations. I'll definitely be back!

Our experience could not have been better. Room was immaculate and had everything we needed. Staff was very helpful with finding a restaurant. We took our son to see the big cats at the Turpentine Creek Big Cat sanctuary which well worth it. We will be back.
