“Great for the price”
Reviewed 8 July 2007

We found ourselves having to find a last-minute place to stay when the Miss Arkansas pagent was in town filling most of the newer hotels. We liked the rustic look of this place and the obvious scenic views afforded on lake Hamilton, with the mountians as a backdrop. If they keep prices near what we paid, you get a really large room with a fully furnnished kitchen and living area with a lakeview and patio for around $80. We were only two people but the singles were gone. They are a great deal at around $60. The room was very clean but the carpet and sofa were by no means new looking. Small tade-off in our opinion. I loved the service we get at these non-chain type Inns as well. To think we almost payed $120 to stay in a much smaller chain hotel with no view and bad service. If they stay true to the traditional small Inn prices, we plan on bringing a group of 4 adults later in the summer. I would ask for a room near the outside left edge of the Inn or upper level if you like peace and quiet. Ours was there and was more peaceful than the opposite end near the floating swimming deck below.

This is a great little motel, right on the shores of Lake Hamilton. The property was well kept, the rooms clean, the beds comfortable, the location great, the staff was friendly, and the views of the lake and mountains from the balcony were spectacular! Just sitting on the balcony or on the swimming dock watching the sun set was one of the most relaxing things I've done in a long time. The place was quiet and the guests well behaved.

The one major drawback for some is the fact that there were no designated "Non-Smoking" rooms. I did not know this when I booked the room, but the staff was very helpful in providing an "Ionizer" to clean the air in the room. This process only took a couple of hours and the obvious cigarette smell was gone.

Please note that only the kitchenette units are lake front and provide lake views. The smaller motel rooms are in the building behind the lakefront units and provide a view of the parking lot.

The $80 rate I paid for lakefront accomodations in Hot Springs is a truly outstanding value. I will definitely return and encourage those who are looking for a good clean motel on the lake to try the Country Inn Lake Resort.

I traveled to Hot Springs with my folks for a family get-together and to see the Arkansas Derby. We had decided to send our week in Hot Springs staying at the Country Inn Lake Resort. It's a nice little resort right on Lake Hamilton, with 16 Kitchenette units right on the lake and 12 more Motel units set behind the Kitchenette units. The resort also has 2 Pavilions (1 covered) with BBQ facilities, 2 covered boat docks and a swimming dock. The resort also offers nice room amenities: Refrigerator in rooms, Microwave Oven in rooms, Cable TV, Coffee Maker, Air Conditioning, Data Ports and Handicapped Accessible rooms.
We had reserved 1 Kitchenette unit ($70.00 a night) for my folks and 1 Motel unit ($55.00 a night) for me. The Kitchenette units are quite roomy with 2 double beds and a nice large bathroom. The Motel units are smaller with 1 double bed and a small bathroom. Both units were clean and comfortable though.
As with all motels, there are a few negatives too. The resort is on a small piece of land so getting a bigger vehicle down to and out of the parking area behind the Kitchenette units can be a little tricky with a large car or SUV. Bring your own Kleenex tissue with you as they don't supply it in the rooms. The Motel unit bathrooms can only accommodate 1 person at a time, with the bathroom door somewhat blocking access to the sink. Make sure you have the right amount of towels in the room when you leave, as the resort will bill you for any missing ones...even if you didn't take any. Finally, the one big complaint we had was we had to pay for our whole 7 night stay right when we checked in. Once we arrived, I found out that I could have stayed at a relatives home for the last 3 days of our vacation. This plan was shot down when the resort informed us that we were responsible for all 7 days even if we didn't use them. If your going to be staying one night...no problem. If your staying more...consider this when booking your reservations.
All in all though, I would still recommend this resort. It's very clean and easy to find...and for $55.00 a night you can't go wrong in a tourist town like Hot Springs.
