Pool was clean, room seemed clean but was not ready when we arrived. Very small rooms, bathroom maybe 32 sq ft total. No WiFi, even cell reception is non existent. It was inexpensive. Older couple runs it, nice place but not modern at all.

The room was disgusting and smelled. The room was the only available room in Ponca or Jasper and so we took it as camping spots were also not available. We made the room sleepable by putting our sleeping bags over the beds.

First of all, the bathroom was so nasty that it had to be cleaned before we could even use it! The room was very dusty and had spider webs in the corners! Most of the room accessories were so old, they were falling apart and the tv was ancient. No phones in the rooms and no cell phone service, so...

When I spoke to the female proprietor on the phone several weeks before, I raved to my friends about how sweet she was. We made some arrangements over the phone in regards to our group, pickup, and float times. Luckily we stopped by the day before our float just to check in and I wasn't even sure it was the...

You get what you pay for here. The host was local and very friendly. She was the best part of the stay. The rooms were so outdated they were retro! The heater looked like it was made in 1960 and featured an open flame and stubborn pilot light. I've used bigger bathrooms in an RV. The light shade was cracked...

After a couple days of camping this place was perfect. I needed to get cleaned up and sort through my things for the next round of my trip. I couldn't have asked or more and the price was right!! Bring a three prong adaptor if you want tot charge your laptop and don't expect a signal in the room. Everything...

Jasper is a tiny little village in the middle of the Ozark Mountains. The only business is from leaf lookers, elk chasers, canoeists and the occasional motorcycle tourists. The motel is old and the bathrooms are tiny, but our room was clean and comfortable. What it lacks in style Mrs Gordon makes up for in hospitality.

I just wanted to go on record, that this is a wonderful place to do business. I saved alot of money, they drove us to the sight to put in, and picked us up at the put out site on time, and brought us back to our car at the motel. No wear and tear on your vehicle and the...

Probably the most basic place we have stayed in years. No phone, basic tv. no frills, really no comfort. But it is in Jasper and there is not much else there. It was somewhat clean. beds were not comfortable...it's just a place to sleep and that's all it is.
