There is a motorcycle friendly motel just to the east of Wal Mart in Mena. Very nice staff and $50 per night single bed. Plenty of eating places within walking distance, all others within a half mile of motel. Never have had to get a reservation.
Cliff House Inn at Jasper is a must, but you need to make reservations. Their website shows some of the scenery just outside of the rooms. Fine restaurant, which is a must since Jasper rolls up the streets at dark. I can't help you around Harrison.
I agree with staying at the Cliff House. Good food, nice place reasonable prices. Also check the state site, great trips, maps, etc to download. Some of the best riding I've done is around Harrison. Motorcycle road trips - Arkansas motorcycle trips
Wound up behind a white newer model Strom in little old Erwin, NC this afternoon on the way home from work. Gotta love 70+ degree weather in December and it's good to see like-minded Strommers out there taking advantage of it.
