Ok, everyone probably knows from reading the other reviews that the place is fairly new. Typical Holiday Inn standards, nothing that special. It was disappointing that the interior of the hotel was designed to look urban (stainless steel, black furniture, sparse furnishings, etc) rather than evoking the natural surroundings of Heber Springs (mountains, lakes, forests, etc). It felt out of place.
Let's start with breakfast - typical breakfast: cereal, very little fruit (bananas), frozen biscuits and very thick gravy, bacon so thin you can read through it, scrambled eggs, etc. Just average. I've stayed at Days Inn's with a similar breakfast. Paying the extra price doesn't mean you get a better breakfast.
Location: Very close to the intersection of Two Main Roads. Pro: easy to find. Con:Lots and Lots of traffic noise. Big trucks gearing down and then speeding up though the traffic light. I'm usually a very sound sleeper, but it seemed like those trucks just kept coming and coming forever.
Rooms: Pro: Again, new and stylish. Con: Bed was WAYYY TOO SOFT. I never get a back-ache, but my back is still hurting two days later. Oh and the bed is at least 12" higher than normal. Very difficult to climb in and out of.
TV: Pro: Yes, there's a 37" tv in the room. Con: Absolutely the worst reception I've ever had at ANY hotel. The channel guide showed about 48 channels, but I could only get about 10 and of those only 5 had a decent picture. Very disappointing. Recommend they hotel pay for cable and forget about satellite.
Vending: Pro: lots of drinks to choose from Con: Only in the lobby, $4.00 for a soda and a candy bar! Woah! Have to pay the desk clerk who acted like I was interrupting him.
I'll be honest and say that I stayed here because it was the newest place in town, but I felt it was lacking in guest comfort, service and convenience.
