    The rooms made you feel at home and the employees made us guests feel so welcome. They had a good breakfast and there is a amazing view. So if you are coming through Clinton Arkansas make sure you stop at the Best Western Hillside Inn.

    « vacation »

    Our room was comfortable and the staff very helpful in making our stay enjoyable and restful. The Hillside Inn is in a good location for shopping and sight seeing. Our vacation was really enjoyable for our family and friends. We will come again in the future.

    « A restful time »

    We went on this trip to visit family and get the rest we needed. We got to visit family and we got the rest we deserved. All because of Dawn and the staff of this Best Western our stay was memorable Thank for our stay

    « Trip to Arakansas »

    This is a great motel to stay in. Sits on a hillside with a beautiful view of the surrounding area. Motel has been recently totally remodeled, rooms are spacious, mini frig , microwave, and flat screen TV. Only downside was the TV remote, need a one with a few more user friendly functions. I would stay in this motel when in the area

    « This is a place to stay when you are in the area. »

    All the staff was professional, there wasn't one thing I can say negative about this property, the breakfast was great, service wonderful and the view was beautiful. We stay at many Hotels but this one knows how to successfully make Hospitality work.

    Another excellent stay at the Hillside Best Western! The hotel staff are so kind and friendly, and very accommodating. The rooms were very clean, and smelled fresh. Beds were really comfortable made for a wonderful nights sleep. Thank you again for the great service and superb stay! See you again in October!

    « Great place for an overnight along our roadtrip »

    Thank you for locating a hotel along a long stretch of road that otherwise had no lodging. We appreciate that greatly. We even woke up to a really beautiful sunrise out the front window in the morning.

    « Great stay »

    Our stay here was great! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was good and had a variety of choices. It was very clean and comfortable. Great place to stay. Will definitely stay here again if in the area.

    « Great one night stay! »

    This is a great hotel clean rooms, friendly staff, and great hot breakfast. The beds were very comfortable as well. The staff here work very hard to make you feel right at home. The view from here is also breathtaking in the mornings. Thank you Hillside Inn for a great stay!

    « Nice Hotel »

    The Hillside Inn lived up to its good reviews. Austin, the young gentleman who checked us in, was courteous, friendly, and helpful. The room was clean, quiet, and spacious. The bed was very comfortable. The only problem we had, and this seems to be a recurring problem, is that we had trouble opening the door. The key worked and the light turned green, but we both had to push on the door to make it open.

    What can I say. Not much more than a nice motel to stay at. A bit pricey for this time of the year and location however have stayed there numerous times over the years. Very good location in between starting and ending locations

    « Best Western Hillside Inn, Clinton, AR »

    Friendly, caring staff, good location, very comfortable and clean. Room access was easy from parking area. I did have repeated issues with the room key not working Wifi access is changed daily without guests who are there for multiple days being notified Pet friendly

    « Great stay and value »

    This hotel is completely remodeled and updated. Check in was easy. Staff were, polite & friendly. Our room was large, clean and comfortable. There was a refrigerator, microwave, TV & wi-fi. Also, a complete breakfast with saussage, eggs, biscuits, gravy, yogurt, oatmeal, fruit, etc. This was our second time to stay here and we'll be back.

    « Great Stay »

    What a Great Stay had to come to see family in the nursing home. The staff really understood my needs and went out of their way to make us comfortable. Nice comfortable bed and clean room. We will be back!

    « Gorgeous »

    Very clean, comfortable, friendly customer service. Slept like a log! Beds were not hard! We missed breakfast. The hotel is on a big hill overlooking and man, what a view! Very comfy and cozy and I'll be back!

    « A great place to stay! »

    I recently stayed here for a business trip and was very pleased with the accommodations and the service there. Nice, friendly people, clean, comfortable room. The ease of the checkout was another nice thing. They just emailed my receipt to me......great place to stay in Clinton, AR!

    « Love coming here twice a year. Rooms are clean and nicely arranged. The staff is excellent and professional. »

    Dorothy makes the best breakfast! Beautifully displayed, hot and fresh! Amy was great at check in. Friendly and accommodating! And Melissa at check out made sure our stay was enjoyable! See you all in April!

    « Very clean, no refrigerator »

    Wish I was made aware on making the reservation that we would be without a refrigerator. Was told after check in they did not have enough for every room and that even if you requested one you may not even get one then. It would be nice for them to ask when making the reservation if you required one or made aware that I wouldn't have one so I could bring a cooler or make other arrangements to keep my food. That was my only issue with my stay. Rooms were very clean!


    Arrive in early evening, got checked on to a ground floor room, played BUNCO out side on the provided patio table, we off to a local Mexican restaurant for a great meal returned and had an enjoyable stay

    « Went to Arkansas for a family reunion, had a very pleasant stay at the Best Western »

    My stay at the Best Western was very nice when I plan to stay there again we I come back to next years family reunion. The rooms were clean and had all the aminity,s that I required. I would recomend this hotel to anyone.

    « High School State Championship Golf »

    We were there to watch on son play in the High school State Championship golf tournament. Parking a vehicle with a golf cart trailer could have been difficult but the golf course let us put it out there. I could see if someone had a medium size rental truck/moving van you would have some limited parking situations. Glad to see that you had a pet friendly hotel.

    « State Golf Tournament Trip »

    We stayed here for my sons state tournament. The room was very up to date and clean. Check in was really easy and the receptionist was super nice. Breakfast was not bad. Showers and bathrooms was really clean and shower head was really nice with good water pressure. Hotel sits up on a hill so you do not hear any road traffic

    « Quiet and Friendly »

    Have stayed here several times as well as other family members. Always clean and quiet (especially being a pet friendly hotel.) Can not say enough about the Manager, Dawn and her staff. They go out of their way to make your stay comfortable and if you need information about the area, they are knowledgeable and help to find answers you may have. They have great choices for breakfast hot and/or cold. We always feel we are part of their family there.

    « Quiet, Clean & Friendly »

    We were so tired from driving all day, when we came to Clinton. We were pleased to find the Best Western sitting on top of the mountain. It was quiet, the room was clean & Amy was so friendly. We got Room 221 upstairs, and could drive right around to ground level, and Amy was right. It had the best view of all.

    « Pleasent Experience »

    Very Clean, Very Comfortable, nice staff. It's seems a little expensive for where it is, but worth the money for sure! Actually one of the nicest Inns I've ever stayed in on the road. I took my family and would return again for sure.

    « Wouldn't stay agsin »

    No water pressure and would take 10minutes for water in sink and shower to get hot. Front desk worker sat in breakfast area and played on her computer. Wouldn't answer the phone when calling from our room or when we were trying to find a restaurant she had recommended after multiple call attempts.

    « Clean and nice staff »

    Very good location. Could walk to many attractions and nice pool. Wish I had more time to enjoy the location. Good meal and coffee. Staff was knowledgeable about local events and restaurants to keep us going.

    « Nice clean hotel in a beautiful location! »

    This hotel appeared to be the best in the small town we visited. It was sits on a pretty hill, higher than most of e town, with a beautiful view. The staff was excellent - friendly and efficient. Breakfast was good.

    « Nice hillside hotel »

    Friendly, good value and clean. I'm on no carbs and sugar, so breakfast had 2 things I allowed myself to eat, but it had a great selection otherwise. Small area to eat, so you would want to take it back to your room.

    « Clean and comfortable. »

    We arrived early and Dawn said our room wasn't ready but they had one they could put us in. The room was clean and comfortable. It's a two story building but they have parking on both levels. The breakfast room is small but they have tables outside. The breakfast is your typical hotel breakfast. Everything was fresh and hot and Dorothy kept everything full.

    « Very clean, friendly, and UPDATED »

    We knew it was the only hotel in town so we were PLEASENTLY surprised at how big, clean, and updated the room was. Plenty of space, large bed, new TV, and friendly staff. The woman who made breakfast every morning did an amazing job. Staff was incredibly friendly and our room was spotless each day. We never had to ask for a single thing. The view from our room was beautiful. Wonderful to wake up to in the morning. Almost didn't want to leave!

    « Nice Hotel and Good View »

    Hotel staff was friendly and we were checked in quickly.. Rooms were clean. Express check-out was nice. The hotel is on a hill and it has a nice view facing southeast. Only disappointment was a group of boy scouts mobbed the breakfast buffet before I got there, so I didn't get to enjoy biscuits and gravy.

    « Some improvements needed »

    There were only minor problems during this stay but the rooms were clean and we like the location. The last several times we stayed here the pool was out of service. The breakfast room is really too small for the number of rooms here. The beds and sheets could be better.

    « Disappointed with lack of pool »

    My husband, grown children, and 2 young grandchildren traveled to Clinton for a family reunion. I booked this hotel more than 2 months before travel to ensure we had 3 rooms. I always check reviews before booking, and these sounded good. The staff was friendly and tried to be helpful but they couldn't overcome the great disappointment of my grandchildren when they saw that the pool was empty. When I asked the desk clerk about the situation, he said they had a fire last year and the pool was not available yet. These children rode patiently for 7 hours in the hopes of having a pool for swimming. I understand that the desk clerk had no control over the situation, but the owners did. They should have posted on their website that the pool was undergoing repairs and was not available. I guess they were fearful of running away potential customers.. The breakfast food was normal for this type of establishment, but the room was much, much too small. It had only 4 tiny tables that seated 2 each, and people were waiting for a place to sit. Evidently this was a regular hotel room that was converted into a breakfast room. Last year my husband and I stayed in Conway, and we will do so in the future unless this hotel is vastly improved.

    « Small town excellence! »

    This motel on the hillside of Clinton, Arkansas, was a delight to experience. The staff was amazingly accommodating and helpful. We were there for a memorial service and Dawn made sure we could check in early and even had her son get an iced tea for one of our family members. This "little" motel makes some of the big ones look shameful.

    « Great view from the hilltop »

    I Love stopping in Clinton and staying on the Hill. Very secure location and friendly helpful staff. This is a hard to book location so don't delay if you think you might be passing through north central Arkansas.

    « Building redone after being gutted by fire. Lower standards than the old building. »

    No safety locks inside room, inadequate water pressure, terrible internet service, no mini fridge in room, Have stayed here most years since 1995 and thought this was a good place. Current management did not honor request for the room I wanted (king size bed on 2nd floor) and did not apologize or try to work with me to keep us happy. Did not want to work with reward points. They were not rude, just very uncaring.

    « Horrible room with noisy guests. The people upstairs were cutting hair on the balcony and throwing it over the railing i »

    Breakfast was the worst I've ever seen in any hotel. Also the other guests were noisy and cutting each other's hair on the outside porch. It's to bad because this hotel is in a great location. I would never stay again

    « Great spot with a view »

    Nice motel with parking in front and rear. Room appeared to have been remodeling recently and was clean and well kept. New windows etc. Fridge was already on and cold. Water feels like water softener is being used. Ac unit worked good and didnt have any weird noises. All the staff were very nice and accommodating. I wanted a first floor but booked without going direct to the hotel so it wasn't available. Breakfast was very basic but thats all its supposed to be. ...the negatives No washer dryer. Never been to motel without them before and I've traveled all over the US. The coffee in the office was weak. The (carpet?) cleaners used here was way too too strong. It dissapated after the second day but way too much was used. I almost asked for a new room but left door open and it aired out a bit on its own before i went to sleep. This isn't the first motel I've mentioned this about. Believe it or not, people don't want to 'smell' anything in their motel room. Im not sure why this is done. I'll look to stay here again in future if I'm back in the area. Overall its a good spot.

    « Great place »

    Super friendly owners. Clean rooms that smelled great, they even sanitized the remote. Breakfast was better than some fancy hotels I've paid a fortune for. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone needing to stay in Clinton.

    This was a good stay - comfortable, clean and new. The staff was pleasant and friendly. The view from the hotel is beautiful... Great option in Clinton, Arkansas for a stay. Just a reminder - Van Buren County is a dry county, so plan accordingly!

    « Beautiful view! Friendly staff.... »

    Staff went above and beyond. View was beautiful. What a place to take in a sunrise or a sunset! Room was clean and comfortable. Hot breakfast was great! Very nice, will plan to come again, and will recommend to others . :)

    « Wonderful little hotel! »

    Staying at this hotel was a wonderful experience. The staff was friendly and informative. The breakfast was hot and diverse. The room was neat as a pin and very clean. The staff person who checked us in was even dressed in a suit and tie when we checked in! Great little place we will gladly stay at again.

    « Excellent experience »

    I know customer service and this place has it in spades! Friendly family feeling customer service. CLEAN rooms which is a must for me! It was easily the best stay I've had anywhere! Internet connection was great and breakfast was a nice variety. Thank you Team Hill you guys rock! Special thanks to Tyler who made our stay pleasant and Timothy for the great morning conversations while manning the breakfast room!

    « Friendly, Caring Staff!! »

    I'm giving this property top honors for customer service and can't say enough about the hospitality and caring that this family-owned business showed my family on our recent visit. We stayed two nights and enjoyed comfortable, clean rooms and a really nice breakfast each day. The family that runs this place went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. We will be returning to the area for several functions in the coming months and will always stay here.

    « Great value. »

    Great value for a comfortable motel. Views are nice. Clean, comfortable bed and room. Decent breakfast with good options. Pleasant staff. Centrally located for exploring the NW area in Arkansas. Glad we chose this motel for our Spring Break getaway. This area of Arkansas is definitely worth exploring, if you enjoy the outdoors. Many beautiful sights to see and friendly people throughout.

    « Great place »

    Purchased acreage in area, while clearing our property, we stayed here and we could not have found a better place. First and foremost, this is a pet friendly hotel, the rooms are clean, no pet smells, no pet stains, staff very helpful and breakfast is good.

    « A good value »

    Very pleasant, quiet with clean, well furnished room. Good breakfast with extensive variety. Friendly staff. Nice view and the property is above the highway noise. Entire facility has a well maintained appearance.

    « Best Hotel Deal in Clinton »

    Okay, there's a Super 8 on the North edge of town that may rent a few dollars less, but it's located in the Walmart parking lot! BW offers a full hot breakfast (a savings of about $10), beautiful views, peaceful quiet, and renovated rooms. VERY friendly staff combine to make this your hands-down Best Choice!

    « Great since the remodel! »

    We have always liked this hotel but now it is even better. It's a simple no-frills place to stay with great attentive staff. The beds are comfy and there is wi-fi and good hot water. The selection of tv channels is awesome.

    What a comfortable and relaxing place to stay. Extremely quiet with large rooms. There is a beautiful view of the city, valley and hills across the way. I have stayed here several times and have never been disappointed.

    Highly recommend! The hotel is updated and we had a very clean room and comfortable bed, friendly workers, great breakfast. A beautiful sunrise when we opened our door. It was all great! The showers/tub were very clean and my in laws were given a handicap room which was very helpful!!!

    « Very clean and up to date. »

    We arrived late and were received in a cordial manner. We were impressed by the cleanliness and appearance of the rooms. We were very pleased with our stay. There was only one complaint....and that was the dining room was very small for breakfast. Only 3 small Otherwise the breakfast was sufficient.

    The room was clean ,very nice The hotel has a beautifull view The bed was great The staff (Dawn & Kelly ) were very helpfull The breakfast was wonderfull This was our 1st stay at BW Hillside. We would stay there again when we are in the area

    « Buisness Trip »

    Booked online but would have saved by contacting direct. Checked in late due to traffic issues in Houston. Hotel was booked when we arrived so very happy we DID book online. Staff was great! Helpful and kind, room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was OK if you like powdered eggs, the biscuits & gravy were good but the overall breakfast was good. They could have offered something different (hot) every other day. If you plan on staying more than 2 days you may consider eating breakfast some where else.

    « Great Hotel Experience!!!! »

    The staff was very considerate and helpful. They gave us great advice on food and things to do. My daughter and I loved the pool. They offered bring towels to us at the pool????The Breakfast was great!!! Waffles, sausage, eggs, sausage gravy and biscuits.....SO Good!!!!

    Very pleased with our stay in small town Arkansas. It made my wife realize that you don't need to spend lots of money to get a quality stay. We would stay again and again. First time at Best Western in years and would look again

    « Great Place to Stay »

    Best place to stay in Clinton. The rooms are updated. They had a nice variety of breakfast items. The location was prefect. We loved the view. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable.

    « Nice family friendly hotel »

    Very nice accommodations, very friendly, courteous staff who seemed to go out of their way to may sure we had everything we needed. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and well appointed. Very nice full breakfast. My only complaint was that while each room is a non smoking room, smokers were encouraged to smoke on a bench that had been placed between each 2 rooms. There were guests next to us who were constantly smoking just outside my door, so I had to walk through the smoke each time I left the room and occasionally, the smoke would enter the room. I realize balancing the rights of smokers and those who don't want to endure their smoke is a difficult task, I just wish they had not been smoking right outside my door especially since we were traveling with young children.
