Spent one night here in early May and received great service. Breakfast was typical for HIX and very good. Staff was excellent. Room was ready when I arrived and was clean. I love the shower head HIX uses. No complaints from me. I will be planning to stay here again

We were on our way to Miami OK for a wedding and wanted to take an extra night somewhere halfway that allowed a little relaxation. Happens that the Pensacola Christian College Girls were staying here too. But they were good girls. Quite and never a rowdy moment. The hotel was clean and service was great. The pool was our main...

This was a nice hotel in an apparently safe looking area. The reason for the 4 star was the cooling system in the room which was 405. It ran constantly and would get either too hot or too cold. We finally turned it off. On the plus side the front desk personnel were excellent, the breakfast was good and room...

This HIE is very conveniently located for travel on I-40 but it's in a residential neighborhood and no road noise. The room is big and designed so that the bed faces the window and a big view of the grassy area stretching in front of the hotel. A great spacious feel, comfy bed, choice of pillows, reasonable price, clean, good...

Room was clean and comfortable and quiet considering it's so close to the interstate. Staff is friendly and attentive. Breakfast was another story....no biscuits, and was told by staff they don't offer biscuits any longer. She did put out cinnamon rolls but they were cold and hard. Coffee was good and hot.

We make several trips to Arkansas each year to visit family. We've stayed at this Holiday Inn numerous times, and every time has been very satisfying. The pool is clean (indoor pool) and the staff is very attentive with re-stocking towels. The lobby area is clean and inviting. They offer a standard morning breakfast with the staff continually monitoring and...

Easy access to I-40 and eateries. Customer service provided by Tyler was exceptional. He was pleasant, extremely courteous and helpful. I would definitely stay at this HIE again. It is on our list of "return visits" when we're traveling the I-40.

Well, I got your attention. The hospital trip was to see a relative. It was just to visit and to be a support. All went well and they are recovering nicely. The folks in Van Buren did a great job helping us on short notice. Many thanks to the staff.

This property was pretty good. Staff was friendly. We loved the Van Buren area and would like to go back but we will be staying in a different hotel. The beds were good and everything was exceptionally clean. I guess the only problem I had was it was overpriced for a Holiday Inn.
