Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fort Smith Overall a good experience except for the restaurant October 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Food Very poor food selection. Always out of majority of entrees on menu except for sandwiches. Not open for lunch. We arrived sun late afternoon. No available food for us to purchase . Always closed in the afternoon. October 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly atmoshere The room was nice, cleaned daily in a timely manner by efficient staff. Hotel staff were all pleasant and friendly. Will stay here again. Thank you. October 7, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not all it was supposed to be. Overall would not stay there again unless other parking arrangements and lounge was better stocked. A/C needs attention as well. October 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great service Brenda, Maria and all the banquet staff really are helpful and try to do everything we ask in a timely fashion. Thanks from all the firefighters who came through the motel October 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location Close to Garrison Avenue and the Convention Center. Enjoyed my stay October 2, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Check-in debacle I experienced problems during check-in as a result of misinformation provided via the corporate room reservation agancy and the local staff provided absolutely no assistance with achieving a resolution. Their behavior was very unprofessional with no concern for customer service whatsoever. September 26, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by room was clean and comfortable; food inedible Breakfast buffet included "oatmeal" that was mostly water and dangerously undercooked scrambled eggs. If you want coffee, they bring a pot and pour it. If you want hot tea, you get your own hot water from a pitcher and put it in a styrofoam cup. Server did not bring requested glass of water. Bread to make toast was stale. Room had coffee maker and supplies, but no tea bags. Coffee breaks at conference did not include hot tea and staff appeared confused when I asked if I could get some hot water, then asked if I had my own tea bags. Group luncheon included poor quality lettuce apparently left sitting out for hours and dessert was two cookies, placed on the plate with the meal so that they soaked up the liquid from the vegetables. The room was very clean and comfortable, and all staff seemed to be very helpful and friendly, but food was so bad that I would recommend eating elsewhere. I was there for a conference and didn't expect gourmet food, but would have liked to be able to get a quick and decent breakfast on site before sessions began. The brownies at the afternoon break, on the other hand, were delicious. September 23, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Evacuation was smooth and efficient During our stay we encountered a fire alarm and evacuation of the premises. The announcement was clear and concise. There was not an announcement to re-enter the building so there was confusion about if we should or not re-enter. After returning to our room there was another alarm type sound which was very short and did not continue. Assumed it was a reset of the alarm system or something. September 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Business Stay Would recommend to anyone visinting the Fort Smith, AR area. Management, staff and all employees very great to deal with. September 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable Hotel Pleasant staff, clean areas, easy access to downtown services and restaurants. Nice room with view. Friendly bar\lounge experience. September 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Hotel I enjoyed my stay, was a pleasant surprise. The complimentary hotel shuttle was a nice surprise The hotel is in a great location to visit all of DT Fort Smith. I will stay here again, given the chance. September 20, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Not up to par I have stayed at this location off and on for a few weeks now for as many as 4 nights in a row. Michael , the young man at the front desk is great, Daniele , the young lady at the restaurant, is wonderful. They are both really great at doing the job they have. I am not sure if I will return to this location after my last two stays. The hotel staff don't seem to understand that they are in the customer service business. I have stood at the hotel restaurant and waited for over 10 min for anyone to come out from the back to seat me, when the place was empty. The staff seems to not care if the stand there post, they just take off , post unmanned. Food is good, just not hot. I one point I was checked two days early due to the man at the front desk didn't want to listen to me while checking in, I as for lower level, for four nights, I was first put on the floor 4, when I ask if he ( Kevin) had a lower floor, his reply was, did want a lower floor? Then only book me in for two of the four nights. Lacy called me and has worked hard to fix things, however her staff keeps dropping the ball. September 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Would stay again Excellent customer service and friendly staff. any issue I had was quickly resolved and the hotel was very easy to get to from the Interstate. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and will stay there in the future. September 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ft smith holiday inn very good hotel to stay in. the internet however is miserably slow and the ac in the rooms dont work very well. but its non the less a good hotel! September 17, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great sleep and large breakfast-easy to book I slept so well. the breakfast was gigantic. It was so easy to book. I totally recommend this place. September 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Place for the Business Traveler I've stayed at this Holiday Inn 4 times in the last 12 months and each time I have an exceptional experience. The staff is outstanding. They are knowledgeable about local restaurants, always courteous, and go out of their way to ensure my stay is exceptional. This is lead through the relationship that my company has with one of the Holiday Inn sales people, Lacey. She is the backbone to the overall experience for me. Creates value in my stay for the experience I receive at the rate we pay. Thank you to Lacey and the Fort Smith Holiday Inn Front Desk team! September 14, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by convenient, though parking is an issue... Hotel was just ok. I have stayed there bf so I knew what to expect. Other hotels were full. Would be nice to have a refrigerator in the room, and a few of the towels were frayed. But not the worst hotel I've stayed in for sure. September 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location and friendly staff Stay here very often, love the location and friendly staff, make you feel like family. September 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Need staff Over all the stay was nice. The need for staff or staff that stays at the location of there job roll would have helped. The front desk was slow, and took about an hour to get breakfast. Room was clean. September 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great room and Bar area I very much enjoyed the service and facility while I was at Fort Smith Holiday Inn September 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay, thanks to great staff! Lacy and her staff always seem to make all of us feel welcome, and if I have to spend the night away from home, I’m glad to do it here. I give all the credit to the staff; everyone is very friendly and seem genuinely glad we chose to stay with them. This hotel is run the way hotels should be! September 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel with great service This hotel is very clean and the staff are very friendly. I would stay at this location again and definitely would recommend this hotel. September 3, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Consistantly clean and great service! Always a pleasure to stay at this location. Quiet, clean and comfortable rooms with a great staff. Shuttle drivers to and from the airport are prompt and friendly. August 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Limited TV channels available Less than 40 free channels, most of which were news and sports. Could not get my favorite shows during my stay. August 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pleasant Experieince I usually travel with my husband but this was a business trip I had to make alone. The room and service were all I expected. Clean, quiet, comfortable room, very helpful staff and I felt very safe. Convenient location. I would definitely use this one again. August 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful Hotel Ours was a quick stop - late arrival and early departure, so we didn't have time or energy to take advantage of the beautiful lobby area with waterfall or any of the other hotel facilities - but this is a modern hotel with courteous staff. We had some initial concerns about parking, since we were pulling a trailer, but free on-street parking was available within a short walk. Price was right courtesy of on-line offer from 3rd party website. August 20, 2014
