That Motel 6 is where a lot of the "homeless" people live that you see holding signs around Fiesta Square.

I stay at the Colonial in Prairie Grove. Very non-fancy, old (think 1950's motel-type with gravel driveways and window A/C's), and cramped rooms. But it's very clean, 15-20 minutes from RRS, there are always several rooms available (game days included), and $45 a night. I haven't stayed anywhere else....and won't.

Cool.  I live in PG and always wondered who stayed in that hotel.

I'd avoid the Lindsay Management company properties. They are not terrible places to rent, but are cookie cutter type apartments with cheap build and over priced. You can usually find somewhere cheaper to live that is nicer quality.

Embassy Suites in Rogers is the best hotel in NWA period.    Marriott Courtyard in Fayetteville is best in Fayetteville.    I've stayed in both several times and was always treated like royalty.    Neither is a bargain or cheap though....      Simply put, Fayetteville could use several additional upper end hotels..............

There are no truly dangerous areas in NWA. However, a good rule of thumb is to avoid east Springdale, east Rogers, south Fayetteville, and weddington west of i-49.

By avoid I simply mean if your car were going to be broken into over night, it would be more likely in these areas.

Wedington west of I49 has a bevy of nice hotels... Hilton Garden Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Homewood Suites by Hilton, Comfort Inn & Suites. I used to live over on that side of town. Just stay away from Betty Jo and you're more than safe over there...

There aren't any really bad areas to stay.  I second the opinion to avoid motels with exterior doors unless you need the cheapest place possible. 

My one other piece of advice would be to avoid the Extended Stay south of Sunset in Springdale.  Not that it's dirty or unsafe, which it isn't, but it has the most uncomfortable beds I have ever slept on at any hotel, ever.

On game weekends I usually do Priceline and get a good deal in Springdale/Rogers.

I stayed there one time and those beds were like sleeping on the floor.

You get what you pay for as it is with all hotels.

If it has an outdoor corridor, it's pretty lame.

No real safety issues though.

Proliferation of hotels at Wedington Exit on 49 and a couple by Olive Garden in the north part of town kind of hide under the radar.

NO major franchise hotel company allows exterior corridor hotels anymore. That's why you see some change names that are. They lose the franchise when the license comes up for renewal and aren't allowed to stay in that system. I know of one deceased hotel owner in West Memphis Arkansas that tried to "enclose" the outside corridor of his Hampton Inn in hopes that Hilton would change it's mind on that and he spent a lot of money only to be told no.

Any body remember when it actually cost $6 to stay in a Motel 6?

And the prices at most hotels/motels were so stable that they didn't change for many years at a time (unless seasonal).

While in high school in the 80's $20 bucks split 6 ways gave you a party pad for the evening. OHH if that hotel could talk..... 8)

Only time I've had my car broken into was at the HI in Springdale. I think the front desk woke me up and alerted me because the car alarm was going off, the SPD just said, sorry......

Why would a high roller like you be staying in Springdale? Are you sure it wasn't one of those HughFreeze Situations? If that was the case, it probably was her pimp that broke into your car since he knew you were 'busy'

....or did you just want to be close to Flapjacks?

Yes, Chancellor is very nice...just remodeled, valet service, good bar/restaurant downstairs. One block off the square - plenty to do within walking distance (eat, shopping, farmers market) 2 -3 Blocks from Dickson St.  - no need to drive intoxicated.

Nice....a good b&b is hard to beat. Being close to Dickson and the Square - I bet that is a blast. I figured ol' Rice would do something similar to this - not shacking up in Spdale at the HI getting his vehicle robbed, eating glazed donuts and drinking watered down coffee.

I bet you drive an old pickup too.....you are already staying in Spdale, might as well stay in Bentonville so you can pay homage to Sam (and not get your old truck broken into). I can see it now - Rice waking up early Saturday morning, driving the old farm truck to the original Walton's 5&10 and stopping off to buy a glazed donut before heading down 49 for the big game. What a weekend...makin' memories

I know the rooms fill up pretty quickly... but if you can get a room at Inn at Carnall Hall, do it. Great restaurant (Ella's), Great lounge area with drinks/ quick bites that stays open late. It has a large flat screen to catch games prior to heading to tailgate and to watch the night cap games when you get back. Your basically on the front lawn of Old Main so you can't beat the location. Just a nice casual stroll through campus to DWRRS.

I am biased as I had my wedding reception here. It's pricey, but the experience is worth it!
