John Calaway

Front desk was really nice They only had a suite on the first floor and I had an oxygen machine to get up to my room However, the elevator was out and they put me in the first floor suite at the price for my original room which was a nice discount! The hotel is in a great location with a nice sports bar restaurant within walking distance

Being from out of town, took us a while to find a good motel The one we wanted is being remodeled QUALITY INN is high on our families list, because it is clean, comfortable and very accommodating

The staff have all been friendly, clean in appearance & helpful! We don’t mind the no elevator quality because everything else makes up for it! Our room, bedding, linens, restroom was very clean and this means alot to us! Thank you Quality Inn, your name does say it all! Be back again! My family enjoyed our 3 day stay!

Lindsoal Brown

This is not a negative review so plz dont take it that way quality inn, we just put a normal rating because the stay was normal The place was clean and tidy and the staff was nice but we cant stand the mini ackwardly stiff pillows on the bed and the beds retain alot of body heat while sleeping The walls are paper thin and the person next to our room blared the tv around midnight so sleep was pretty awful

Still its fine to stay here, just ok but our experience wasnt good

We had a business/church group fishing trip planned out at Gene’s Trout Lodge Fantastic opportunity to bring your own river boat or rent one of theirs They have docking boat slips for your boat with easy access to and from your lodge to their boat docks

Beds are so so but just a place to sleep for us We care more about the river and easy access Would suggest better towels, bed sheets/ blankets, updated bathrooms, and gas grills would be more accomdating Overall Gene’s is a great place to stay to be on the river

Wes Howard

Best available location for the Norfork River! Excellent amenities as well, their web page is a great place for information if you’re planning on staying here You can also call them on the phone and reserve your room, we did not pay until we arrived which was what we were told to do by their staff We were quoted a $90 rate for one night stay on a Saturday night for two adults and one child

Which is awesome! Especially given the location The staff member even told us we could bring our pet which is an 8 week old German shorthaired pointer puppy We did not find out until we got there that the rate was not going to be $90 because of the additional fees associated with a third person fee of 10 dollars, and a pet fee of $35 So I think my total was around $167 with fees and tax of course Which is still a great rate! I asked the gentleman and the lady at the desk upon arrival about the fees and ask them if they offered a military discount, law enforcement discount or a healthcare discount The gentleman probably replied that the rates are low enough as they are I explained to the gentleman that I was asking for review purposes and that I asked everywhere I go I was met with crickets 🤣 (SILENCE) This is a great place to stay folks and the best view you could imagine for that part of Arkansas! It is also about a 56 second drive away from the Norfolk Lake quarry boat ramp and swimming area You guys should check it out seriously!

My husband and I got married there in September of 2021 Totally forgot to do a review But remembered to now bc it’s getting closer to our one year anniversary

So we have plans to stay there again and we can’t wait! She did an amazing job on our wedding! Made us feel super comfortable and welcoming! Was able to help with every idea or thought we had and the cake was amazing too! Super sweet lady who’s willing to go above and behind for any of her customers!

My girlfriend, Amy and I stayed over the weekend to re-center and enjoy some peace and quiet to strengthen our relationship The owner was very kind and hospitable The place was beautiful, enviting, and clean

The room we requested was perfect It had the features of an expensive hotel sweet The view of the lake from our balcony was second to none I highly recommend this place to any couple that need togetherness 5 stars

We could not have asked for a better experience Our server Tabitha earned our utmost respect and appreciation She was amazing and made us feel welcomed from the moment we sat down

We had the beer cheese dip as an appetizer and I treated myself to a bowl of the french onion soup Both my wife and I were extremely delighted at how they tastedWe both ordered steaks and they were cooked perfectly and seasoned just right We over indulged so we had plenty of leftovers Tabitha talked us into getting a piece of the peanut butter pie I am glad she did as it was delicious

Jason Chasten

The picture it shows here does not do the resort justice The cabins are very nice and well taken care of Great for family vacations and really good area for fishing for Stripers, Hybrids, Kentucky Blue Gill, Crappie, bass and more

If you like trout fishing they have some great areas for thatYou drive into Mountain Home and there a lot of places to eat and more Highly recommend checking it out

Wayne Carlson

Pretty good food with a great view of Lake Norfork Only gave four stars is the wife’s filet mignon was ordered medium rare and received well done I would have definitely returned it! Other reason our waitress went to get our salads but never returned with them

When our diner was finally ready it was brought out and still no salads She finally went to get them after I asked what ever happened with the salads

The view was awesome, it was my first time eating here My husband got the bow tie Cajun pasta, he loved it I got the chicken Alfredo pasta, I didn’t love it

It lacked that garlic-y flavor that Italian food has, it was good but I think they can improve Our server was super nice, a middle aged man The salad was my favorite part It was so good

Stephanie Saver

Second time visiting the area and eating at the restaurant Had the brunch 1st time it was very good Everything delicious on it

Over the 4th of July holiday came in for dinner No complaints again Food was amazing again Exceptional service from our server Scott He was a pleasure to have wait on us Loved watching the humming birds on the feeder while we sat at our table Will definitely be back again

Mark Carroll Jr

We have always received first class service at Gaston’s My wife and I got married at Gaston’s in 2018 The cabins give a nostalgic river feel, which is what you should want/expect when at the river

The White River is simply put, second to none when it comes to trout fishing in Arkansas The staff is friendly, and will accommodate for all guests Whether flying in, or driving in, you will be hard pressed to find a dog friendly resort with a classy restaurant, and quality hospitality like Gaston’s on the White River

ProsExcellent location right in the White River with full hook ups for RV’s It has cabins on the front, most are overlooking the river It has an awesome fly fishing shop with expert guides and knowledge of the river

The four bathhouses (toilet and shower combined) are clean and air conditioned/heated depending on the season The owner is very responsive to campers needsConsPictures on the website are deceiving The cabins and general area needs upgrading This is a diamond in the rough and could generate more business if the site and amenities were updated The garbage dumpsters need to be moved far away from campsites and emptied more regularly The flys in the campsites were primarily due to the location of the dumpsters

Jacob P

We camped here in an rv site next to the beautiful White River The “resort” was quite for the most part but it wasn’t what I was expecting for a resort The roads in and out where not paved or very poorly paved, the store on location was not open, there were no activities offered as you would see in other resorts camping or otherwise

It was very basic for the price

Matt S

Camping trip for the 4th of July wknd No one was ever at the office the entire 4 days we were there Potholes in the drive need fixed

I will say the bathrooms and showers seem to be cool and comfortable We did have to go and get our own picnic table and bring it to our site, There were some laying around but you had to walk them over to your site if you wanted it The fire pits need upgraded they are nothing more than a circle on the ground with some blocks around them Not all of them had a fire pit that I could tell fortunately ours had a small one All in all I would go there again if I absolutely could not find anything else in the area but compared to to White River state park just down the street this place does not even rate close to that They did have full hook up which was nice and the price was a fair deal for the night Could be a better place if some upgrades were made And people would be around the office on a regular basis

Marsha Pillers

I drove down this road because I was curious as to what was at the end of it I’d seen the sign for over 10 years as I drove back and forth to Mountain home Hand cove resort is like walking back into an Ozarks resort in the ’60s

Cute little cabins, looks like quite a bit of RV space and my assumption is a lot of those people are full-timers or at least long timers because there were decks and barbecues set up by the rvs There’s a nice boat dock, the resort looks like it’s laid back and unassuming They had a nice pool, and look like a little convenience store I would say if a person wanted to go there for a nice quiet vacation, take the kids, and just be able to kick back, relax and have a nice time by the lake then this would be a great place to go

Dennis Kohler

If your looking for a fishing trip this is your place It’s quiet and the rooms are very clean Cellphones do not work

There is no signal It was great The resort is a bit off the beaten path but very tranquil Greg is very helpful He can tell you were to try and catch fish and what they are biting on If you don’t fish it’s ok too Go and enjoy the clear lake and chill out and enjoy
