Hotel's Favourite
So this is not the perfect motel but this place is very nice and clean. The rooms are spacious, clean and just what I need. The lobby and breakfast is very good. Brenda at front desk is wonderful and helpful and she must work many hours. Coming with dogs is amazing because there is a huge field behind the hotel. You can walk over to Freddy’s next door also and sit on their patio with your dogs for dinner. Things I would change but certainly not complaining is change the air conditioner to one that is quieter and get a dehumidifier for the rooms. You can see the owner cares about his hotel and takes pride in it. This is our second time staying here and will stay again when we come that way. Thank you for a good night sleep.

This location was not up to the standards of the other hotels we used in the BW chain. The check-in was cold and impersonal and the room was not very clean. That if passing through again we will find another hotel.

I dont know why this hotel chain has to give pet owners the crappiest room in the complex but they always put us on the first floor near all the noise and foot traffick. First off, the room smells like dog pee. Someone didnt clean the carpet very well. Thank goodness I brought some Gain fabric spray. The hotel is a little run down. Everything in the room was extremely dusty and old. They made a good effort to try and make it look nice but dont be fooled by the pictures. This place does not uphold the Best Western reputation at all. I cut them a little slack for being in Arkansas..haven't stayed in one decent, clean hotel coming through this state yet! I would have complained and asked to be moved to another room, but there was a line at the desk and I was tired. Im not being a Karen, but if you expect a certain level of quality from Best Western for the price, they should deliver.

The Van Buren BW is very conveniently located right of Interstate 40 and across from Lake Louemma. If you are traveling with pets, this is a great option. There are large fields around the hotel for walking the dog, plus Lake Louemma provides a beautiful place to walk the dog. The rooms are nicely appointed and the staff could not be more welcoming and helpful. We travel I-40 between homes in AZ and VA and stay at the Van Buren BW on each trip. It's "BW Dependable."
