The owners are very friendly. The motel is of easy access and the rooms are nice and clean. My only complaint is that the bathrooms are very small, including the showers. However this is a honest budget hotel and the owners try their best.

If you are in Yellville you are probably there to paddle the Buffalo river. This hotel is 15 minutes from all the outfitters. Mom and Pop operation, very clean rooms, AC blows cold, very economical price. Wifi is free and was very reliable. On a side street and I never heard any traffic noise and my room was the to...

I have to confess that I was never an outdoors person but over the last few years I'm learning to embrace and appreciate it. My wife who is from Arkansas has managed to get this Jersey born and raised guy up in Northern Arkansas on a trip to The Indian Rockhouse. So my review may come across as a little...

We are very sorry, that you not were completely pleased with you stay with us. A quality room check is done after housekeeping completes their cleaning. The carpet would be double checked. We do pride ourselves on our clean rooms. Checking back I found that the room was not rented for several nights before your stay. Our rooms open to...

We stayed here four days three nights, the owners were very polite and helpful. We drove 12hours and arrived a little early, they had us checked in quickly. Room was clean and comfortable, great restaurant down the street for breakfast and dinner. We are planning another trip, and will definitely stay here again!

A quaint place with charm and great views at an affordable price. Our room included a king bed, fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, 2 recliners and a flat-screen TV. The room was tastefully decorated and very clean with great detail given to extras (pillows, blankets, towels, toiletries, etc.). There is a nice pool and we saw an area with grills available for...

We have stayed here a number of times and have never been disappointed. This time we stayed in the queen room. It is a bit small but the price can't be beat - $49. The decor, the bed, the AC and the bathroom were all beautiful and I can't think of one complaint.

Our second time at the Carlton Marion Inn and it was just as good as the first time. As like the first time, we pull up the beautiful plants hanging all along the porch. We were welcomed warmly by the owners just like the first time. Walk into the room, and it is old but clean. The bathrooms are small...

Stayed here for the second time in two years. Hotel management is great and keep the rooms up nicely. Beds are really comfortable and the rooms are a great value for the price. We rode motorcycles through the area during the day and relaxed around the pool at night. There are plenty of chairs to sit around on the porch...

Nice old style motel in Yellville. The room was clean, quiet and the bed comfortable. It could certainly use some updates though. There was free wifi though my room (108) was not at all set up for a business traveler - no desk or table. For the price - you can't beat it.

We are very glad this guest enjoyed their stay. We do appreciate the good score. The room has new carpet, new furniture and a new flat screen TV. This particular room did not have room for an extra desk. I’m sorry that we were not aware of her need, or we would have tried to choose another room more accommodating...

Our family spent two nights at the Carlton Marion Inn and had a wonderful experience. Our accommodations were well appointed, clean, comfortable, quiet, and pretty. There was a lovely pool as well, but we did not use it. I left my billfold and hair clip behind in the room and the owners notified me of it before I had even...
