“Perfect in every way. What a gem! This motel had it all…great service, a wonderful room and fantastic location. Check in was very smooth and the room had the unexpected bonus of a small porch in the back overlooking a lovely brook. The location was perfect for a brief wall into town and the Old Town Hot Springs. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful too. A perfect stay all around…highly recommend!”
