“NIce Hotel-GREAT View and Location”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Nice hotel with GREAT views and a great location (close enough to downtown and the spas but "off the beaten path" so you can get some rest!

The room was a little small (not even a desk in it due to its size), but it had a great view and was clean and had a nice bed.

I think it's a little pricey when compared to other offerings in the area, especially since they do NOT even offer a free breakfast (extremely rare for a Choice Hotel)!

The people were very friendly and accommodating, but due to the price-I will not be returning..

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor to have a better view,

The staff was really nice, but a bit inefficient. It was Memorial Day weekend, so it was busy. I watched fireworks from my balcony, so that was nice. The location is good because it's right on the water and next to Smyley's Crab Shack (a popular bar/restaurant). That being said, the beds were WAY too soft and the room smelled a bit musty. It was extremely inexpensive, though. So, overall, it was good value for money and I'd stay again. :)

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room with a balcony!

Overpriced for an outdated hotel. Don't let the name fool you it's not a resort. Nice for a quick stay but not a vacation. Bed was comfortable, room was clean. However very outdated and bathroom small. Breakfast not included. Mildew on all ceilings. If your used to the Hampton go there instead. Not what I expected.

This hotel is on the back end of its life, unless it gets a pretty major upgrade. It is an older hotel, I know this because my mother worked there when she was in college. The staff was very friendly and it looked like that during the warmer months that it would be better for kids(nice outdoor playground).

Wherever possible, I am trying to review properties for accessibility, but this review will apply to both types of rooms. We joined family for the races in Hot Springs this past weekend (April 2014) and spent a night here. I booked a handicapped room weeks in advance. When we arrived, we were assigned a room that was the tiniest room I have ever seen in a hotel of this type. There was a queen sized bed in the room and a cupboard that housed the TV, microwave, and refrigerator. Nothing else. IN spite of the lack of furniture, there was literally no way to maneuver in the room on my mobility scooter. I could not get into the room or move around the bed. The bathroom was quite large, but in spite of the size, there was a normal bathtub with a couple of grab bars added--not a roll in shower or even a step in shower. It had to have been a very small room (it was on the 2d floor and was all the way at the end of the hall from the elevator, too.) to begin with before it was modified to try and make it ADA. I called the desk and the man on the phone said they had larger ADA rooms, but they had been already rented. I said I would make do with a non ADA room. but that that room was NOT ADA compliant. No person in a chair could have maneuvered in that room!

The room we got was much larger--it had a king sized bed, an armchair with hassock, and a desk. I had room to maneuver the scooter such that I only had a couple of steps to the toilet and sink in the bathroom. The bed was comfortable and it featured lots of pillows. It also had a balcony that overlooked the lake (but faced the highway so was a bit noisy). The carpet was old, but fairly clean. However there was no light in the entry part of the room and that was where the closet was. It was the darkest closet area I have ever seen in a hotel room. I visited a two bedded room of some of our family members and it was really crowded. Very tight areas.

The handicapped situation was not a good one. The facility struck me over all as old and in a shabby way, not in a nice way. There was a door near the handicapped parking area that was supposed to be locked for security and require a key card to open--never found it locked while we were there. It seemed to be a very noisy place.

It is in an attractive location, although on the edge of town from most attractions other than the lake. There are newer chain hotels in town--I would try one of those.

One note--the staff was very helpful and concerned about making the room situation right. It was not their fault that the room was so small and they wanted to help.

Room Tip: I think it is possible that the rooms on the side away from the highway might be a bit quieter; and...
