Lodging in Arkansas

My son and I are leaving for Arkansas on 10-19-11 and was looking for suggestions for good clean motels in Eureka Springs and in Russellville. We are going to Broken Bow Ok. the first night then picking up the Talimena senic byway and then into Mena. From there just where ever looks good.

Stop in Wichita Falls and pick me up. I have family just east of Mena that I visit quite often, and I never tire of the route you are going. Do the Cliffside Motel at Jasper on Hwy 7. You won't be disappointed.

Stayed at the Best Western in Eureka Springs 2yrs ago. Quiet, clean, offers secure motorcycle parking.

Thanks for the suggestions. Really enjoy riding in Arkansas, great people all over the state and some of the best riding around. Two or three other people backed out of the trip so it will just be my son and myself on our Wees. Can't wait.

2nd the Best Western in Eureka Springs. Its a big old rambling place with lots of parking and really great omelets at the restaurant.

I think I'll take a nap.

Can't help with lodging in Russellville or Eureka even though I've been through both XXX times.

If you want the Arkansas epicenter of good riding, that would be Jasper. Only downside is maybe lack of motel rooms to your standards.
