“Great value for short stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

Clean rooms with comfortable beds. Microwave, coffeemaker, fridge in room. AC was not too noisy. Hair dryer good. Could have used more washcloths. No fan in bathroom caused a little embarrassment. Next time we will book downstairs near back section. There is NO ELEVATOR and the stairs are hard on my knees.

Stayed April 2014, travelled with friends

This is one of our favorite places to stay when traveling through this part of the state. Its not fancy but it is clean and the staff in general is friendly and willing to help. We have found it to be quite and usually get a decent night rest.

My first review of the Guest House International in Fort Smith drew over 1300 Tripadvisor viewers. So, we took the occasion to re-visit the facility a year later. The lobby had the same casual appearance of a fraternity house as earlier, with employees in over-stuffed chairs, watching a football game on TV. Everyone was friendly, and several introduced themselves as we checked in. It was late, on a slow night, with maybe 40% occupied rooms.
This is not a glitzy, large-chain motel. It's furnishings are a bit dated, yet adequate and clean. Our room was freshly painted, with a new bedspread on the king bed. The TV appeared new; and the light fixtures matched, contrary to my last review.
After driving 650 miles that day, we were quite happy to drop into a clean and comfortable bed for a needed night's sleep. Still, I have two minor complaints:
1) To reduce hallway noise, exterior weather-stripping was installed around each room door. It looks very 'do-it-yourself tacky’. A proper fix is a glue-down, commercial, rubber compression strip that fits the jamb slot; and
2) We found a change to the free 'help-yourself breakfast' - link sausage has been substituted for bacon. Sorry, bacon-lovers.
All in all, Guest House International remains a good value for dollar spent. With the $30/night savings, as compared to the near-by I-540 motels, you can buy a lot of bacon!

Room Tip: I recommend lower level, on the end toward the outside pool. The breakfast area, ice machine, and v...

The Guesthouse Inn of Fort Smith was recommended by a relative. The motel appears to be a converted Days Inn, located south of the Ft. Smith Airport on US-71 at Grinnell Ave. Value-wise, it proved to be a diamond in the rough.

The Inn has a friendly, casual staff who run it like a boarding house. The facility attracts repeat guests made up of laid-back bikers, young families, hunters, and cross-country travelers who favor secondary roads. In the parking lot, pick-ups greatly outnumber Lexus sedans. The congenial atmosphere of both staff and guests encouraged us to stretch our stay from one night to three.

The facility’s interior is a bit dull and a little rough around the edges. Exposed weather-stripping has been added as a sound damper around the hallway doors. Our room had mis-matched wall lamps that appeared to be from a ‘going-out-of-business’ sale; and, the room’s
ceiling and lamp bulbs annoyingly cast varied shades of light. One wondered if maintenance personnel are limited to only purchasing at discount sales.

If one can overlook the motel’s interior cosmetics [which the Desk clerk claimed would be improved this winter], pleasant compensation can be found.

The Guesthouse Inn’s complimentary breakfast is both better, and with more variety, than La Quintas. Our room was quiet, the king-sized bed comfortable, the room and bath clean, and a decent HD TV carried the typical small market stations. [Most programming came from Tulsa, OK]

The motel is situated a little off the highway, which contributes to the rooms being very quiet. If one chooses to take a walk, a group of guests could usually be found chatting poolside, with an empty lawn chair available.

The Inn attracts a cross-section of cordial, middle-class travelers, who need a quiet room for the night, at a price 30% less than nearby chains. Low-key and friendly, the Guesthouse Inn is a very good value!

Room Tip: For summer travel, choose a room on the North end, first or second floor, near the swimming pool. P...

I was tired and ready to settle. This motel was closest to where I was working. Like the title it was ok. The motel is older and but the room was large. The bed was very comfortable and the staff was friendly. I think many of the people at this motel live in the rooms.
