Of course I got the mandatory 5 mins of rain enough to cool down but not enough to get soaked.

Well tomorrow I start home a long slog so this is the last blog until I get home and I’ll send one out to say I got home ...

... for about 1/2 hr.
After supper I went downtown to Bath House Row to see the famous bath houses that people 'took the waters'. You could not take a bath their now as they had been taken over as shops or government offices, but still made a good picture.
Tomorrow I'll take one last trip and then get ready to ride home. My bum is not looking forward to it.

Travel Day no pics

A travel blog entry by muggeragem

Well decided to stick to plan, came down to Hot Springs. I have two days until I pack up and return home. Thunderstorm started then quickly passed over again (think it's following me) while I was chomping down on some good barbequed ribs. Good thing I don't eat lunch on the road.

Our 2 days in Arkansas

We chased a massive storm into Arkansas one afternoon, we didn't plan on going this Far East but the storm was to good to miss. We had to call it a night after over 1000km as the terrain was too hilly to get a good view of the storm and the light was fading. This storm went on to produce a ...

We hope you had a wonderful Easter, and thanks for your well wishes.

Tomorrow - Durant, Oklahoma. Goodnight!

    The historic Arlington Hotel is really beautiful. The rooms have been updated while maintaining their vintage appeal. We were disappointed that there was no complimentary breakfast but loved the hot tub and heated pool. The service was great. We used the free parking lot, but the valet workers were really helpful with directions and kept our mt bikes safe while we weren't using them. We never got a chance to use the bath house but I would love to try that next time I stay at the Arlington. The location is great; right in the middle of bath house row, within walking distance of lots of restaurants, galleries, bath houses, nature trails, etc. once we parked our car we never used it again.

    Classical

    from

    i think the arlington has a classical feel to it. staff is wonderful and friendly. it has historic value.

    The Arlington hotel...DUMP!!

    from

    The Arlington hotel in Hot Springs, AR needs some major remodeling,

    A Hotel with Personality

    from

    If you like a hotel with a lot of personality, the Arlington is your place. There is no better place to stay in Hot Springs. The atmosphere is tremendous. The location, at the end of Bathhouse Row, is perfect.But if you prefer a hotel where everything is new, where all the rooms look alike, and where you could just as easily be in Minnesota, New Mexico or West Virginia, you might consider staying elsewhere.

    Mold, mildew, yech!

    from

    The pictures of the rooms on the Arlington website are a JOKE. Maybe... just maybe ... they looked like that thirty years ago but NOW you'll find plastic furniture, paint flaking off the walls, carpet that looks like it hasn't been cleaned in thirty years, and MOLD, MILDEW, and unknown substances growing in the bathrooms in the rooms!!!And all of this for $250.00 a night!!!!We stayed in this hotel a grand total of thirty minutes ... time enough to move to three suites and give up on finding any room that could be inhabited by human beings.The Arkansas State Health Department needs to look into this place!!!!Stay at one of the newer places by the lake ... Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn Express ... they are clean and well kept.

    Save your money

    from

    Save your money and stay somewhere else. Our suite cost us $295.00 per night and it was a joke. The size of the suite was wonderful, however, it was poorly furnished. The "parlor" furniture was covered in a plastic all weather material. The carpet was filthy, and the bathroom looked as if it came out of a 29.99 a nite dump. Most of the staff who make their money off tips were extremely helpful and nice. However, the service at the front desk is appalling. They act as if they could not care less if you stay with them or not, and truthfully they probably would appreciate it if you did not, since it would be one less thing for them to do. The only positive about our experience was the Lobby and lobby lounge. It is phenomenal. Stay somewhere else and come here for drinks and sit in the lobby, that way you can retire to a clean room. We stayed in Parlor Suite 224. If you stay here do yourself a favor and make sure you do not get this "suite".

    Price dosen't match the room!

    from

    The staff was VERY rude. It seemed they based their helpfulness and "niceness" on apperance only. The rooms were old, dirty, and smelled of mold. The shower was molded and dirty. I didn't feel comfirtable stepping in it with my bare feet, so I wore shoes. The price definantly dosen't add up to the quality of the room. A Holiday Inn would have a nicer, cleaner, less expensive room. If you are picky about cleanliness this is not the place for you. The location is convenient and lobby is beautiful, that's about the only positive thing.

    Landmark needs refurbishing

    I stayed at the Arlington, Hotel January 3rd with a friend. We got into Hot Springs late at night and my friend and I like Historic Hotels, so from the outside the Arlington looked grand.

    This once great hotel is showing her age. Some attempts to refurbish rooms and facilities have helped, but the quality does not match the price.

    It's a dump!

    It's a DUMP and a tragedy!

    I love this place!

    from

    I have been to the Arlington Resort Hotel & Spa over 20 times, and I am in love with the place. If you are going to visit Hot Springs, staying here is a must. It is located right in the middle of downtown Hot Springs. Bathhouse Row is on one side of the street next to the Arlington, and many shops are located on the other side. The hotel is clean, spacious, and historic. My favorite thing about this hotel is that on the weekends, they have a live band down in the lobby and lots of people get up and dance. I also enjoy sitting out on the porch and watching all the activity of this beautiful resort town. The only thing i dislike about this hotel is that some of the staff treat you differently based on appearances. I have had problems with this on two occassions. Once, a friend of mine had just gotten to the hotel, so she looked a little rough. She had to ask the front desk for something, and i remember they gave her a hard time. I was dressed up to go out, and when i went to take care of this problem, they were extremely courteous. Another time, i had a friend that had just woken up...we were going on an outdoor adventure tour that day, so she went down to have breakfast in some of her outdoor clothes. The wait staff was somewhat unfriendly, but when my mother got down, they very very nice. I am not sure if it is age, or appearance, but it seems that some of the staff change their behavior based on these things. A lot of places are like that, though, i guess. Anyway, i love this place!
