Wanted a cup of coffee. There was a line. Man at check in desk said we could have one cup of coffee. And Made sure to say just one. I felt he was a bit rude about a cup of coffee.

Please accept our apologies for this issue. We do offer our guests a free drip coffee when they present their room key at Poindexter. We hope to see you again soon!

They claimed that they had issues with what kind of room was reserved through travelocity. When I checked in they gave my wife an I a kids room with twin Razorback beds. They had no other rooms to offer. I prepaid two months in advance for the rooms for a concert at the Walton Arts Center. They paid for a room at a holiday Inn was n Sprindale. Not close to the venue.

The property is undergoing a face lift and ownership change. It was difficult to get to a door that got you inside! Once in, apologies abounded and our floor was one the remodel hadn’t reached. That was the only negative thing about the stay. The room was lovely. Bed was comfy with great pillows! Lobby lounge was very nice!

What I didn’t like was the a/c blower was extremely loud, to the point I could not hear the TV while a/c was on. Had to turn the hole system off per directions of the staff. Slept well but could have been morecomfortable with a working system

Pool heater was broken. Pool wasn’t clean. Room was next to elevator and it was very loud late into the night. Also ice maker wasn’t working right and was very loud all night long whenever it would start making ice. Paid almost 200.00 for a room and breakfast was expensive. Not a long of bang or any for that matter for your buck. Friends stayed at Hampton for almost 60.00 cheaper and had free breakfast and a huge heated pool with a sauna.
