My adult son and I rented a couple of rooms in October. The Happy Hollow is a terrific spot - hope to make this place a twice a year stay! The rooms are clean, with nice white fluffy towels, linens and plenty of hot water, a coffee maker, frig and microwave, - Wi-Fi and ample electrical outlets for chargers available.... More

The location of this motel is very peaceful and quiet. It's conveniently situated near bath house row and not far from the convention center. The building is quite old but has been painted and cleaned well enough to suit most travelers. The bed, mattress, and linens are new. The property is dog friendly and has plenty grass on which to...

Stayed here for a weekend and the rooms/motel was clean and quiet. Just close enough to walk to the bathhouses and - pretty much anywhere we wanted or needed to go! Beds were comfy and we were able to take midday naps without outside noise/disruption. Dog friendly! Definitely coming again and SOON!!

Have stayed here several times and Love the hotel, the employees, the location, and everything about it. This is an older hotel, and it is well kept. The rooms are very clean and the location is great! The employees are very nice and respectful. You won't go wrong getting a room here!

We were only here for one night but enjoyed our time here. The location couldn't be better, your off the main traffic areas but within walking distance of bath house row. The room was inexpensive, nothing fancy but it was clean, and who goes to Hot Springs to stay in their room any way. The management polite and friendly.

The Happy Hollow is a quaint, retro motel in Hot Springs. It is very clean, and the beds are very comfortable. It is very convenient to the bath houses and the downtown area as well as the National Park. The motel is very quiet and has all the amenities of most any other motel/hotel.

I only made reservations here because I seen 4 stars on trip advisor very disappointing. Not sure how the heck they were rated so high. The payment was done by running a credit card on... More

Had the chance to stay at this quaint little getaway right in the downtown Hot Springs area. Came highly recommended from a friend and it did not disappoint. Built sometime in the 50's, it still holds some of that dated charm with the tiled bathrooms and closets. However, the rooms are huge and have been updated with modern comforts: HD... More

Happy Hollow is a great, economical choice when visiting Hot Springs. The location is very convenient to the downtown attractions. The rooms have recently been renovated and are very modern and comfortable. Beds were great. Shower worked well. Great Wi-Fi connection. Definitely give it a try on your next visit!

A throw back place to the 60s with a good price and clean, comfortable room. Nothing fancy but location excellent for walking to main street, bath houses, mountain tower and nearby spring water to fill water bottles.
