I will give this a try but though I have been to Northwest Arkansas many times I have not spent time in or around Noel. It is not exactly clear the type of accommodations you seek. It should take you 30 or 35 minutes to get from Noel to the northern portions of NW Arkansas which would mean Bentonville or Rogers. The Embassy Suites is a decent hotel with typically spacious suites, cooked to order breakfasts, pool and gym. There are newer hotels but particularly if my family were along, I'd feel fairly confident with Embassy which is right off the interstate. If you really want to go upscale my fav hotel in that area is Museum Hotel 21c at Bentonville . However it is way off the expressway and may not meet your needs. I doubt this answers your question but it may offer some options.
I would suggest that it depends on the time you are visiting. There are so many hotels in Bentonville which are there to cater for business visitors to Walmart ,Sam's Club etc That means that you can get many great deals predominantly at the weekends.
My family stayed in Rogers about a month ago at the Homewood Suites. We drove to Noel to tour the cavern there & it was around 25/30 minutes. Not bad at all. Our hotel was nice & there were several others in the same area that would be good too (such as a Hampton Inn). If you go up the interstate just a bit, you'll have some options in Bentonville too.
