It is a very dated room. Everything felt damp I'm sure it was because of the concrete block walls. It was clean. The bed was comfortable. The parking was very close to the hi way and limited. They did have security driving by throughout the night.

we were in Hot Springs to visit family for Easter weekend. Our stay at the Joplin Inn was very nice the rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. And having Q-tips and cotton balls in the bathroom was a added Bonus.I used the cottonballs to plug my ears so I didn't hear my husbands snoring.Thanks alot

We added another night to our trip after digging quartz crystals. We were allowed a single night stay even though they have a two night policy on weekends but them having a vacant room allowed us to take advantage. Nice, clean, updated room. Easy access. Would return for sure

The very best part of staying at the Joplin Inn is the staff. They are professional and efficient, but also have a personal touch. On my day of arrival, they called me to see whether or not I had everything I needed. Next best is the convenient location: right off the highway, yet close to the recreation spots in Mount...

This was my first time staying in the Mt. Ida area. I found the motel on the internet and thought it would be ok for a couple of nights. The room was clean, had a microwave and fridge, flatscreen tv, comfortable bed. Check-in is a little different in that you go across the highway to the Joplin Store and check...

My room was clean and comfortable with all the essentials. The bathroom was clean and nicely decorated as well. It's a shower only, no tub but the water pressure was perfect and just the right temperature.

The Joplin Inn booking staff was the best - great customer service, knowledgeable advice, and willingness to provide local information. Chrisy made the booking experience easy and fast. The accommodations were the best! Couldn't have asked for more and the location was central to all of our activities. The "room" was excellently appointed and provided wonderful living areas. I would...

Our room was very clean. The maids do an amazing job. The beds are very comfortable, and the linens are very nice. Overall, the room was acceptable and we would stay there again. We were contacted every day by the Mountain Harbor Resort to check on our needs and satisfaction. That said, when we walked in there was a musty...

The Mountain Harbor folks have bought this quaint motel on Hwy 270 and spruced it up. It's comfy and convenient to the lodge and the lake. Lake Ouachita is one of the best lakes in Arkansas - beautiful! This is certainly a good option for a weekend at the lake for two when you don't need a cabin.
