Think old school with really good service. It's just like we stayed in when we were kids. But it's up to date and clean. Love the pool! Loved our corner room! Rooms aren't big but they are just fine!!

For a smaller town and a smaller property, this was a very pleasant surprise. Very clean rooms, good beds, and the swimming pool is great. About 6 blocks to the Current River and about 4 blocks off Highway 60.

Great spot. Keep in mind the price you pay for a room and the location. Walk to everything in town. Try mid week in the Summer. It's a completely different experience than weekends - peaceful, quiet and more family oriented. The river has fewer boats and floaters. Great store across the street for coffee w free refills, decent breakfast, great...

The Hawthorne Motel at one time was a very nice motel in this quaint little tourist community... but is now dated. The rooms are on the small side, and the furnishings are several years old.

We had stayed here several years ago and it wasn't very nice but the manager said the were in the process of redoing and renovating the rooms and the motel.

Have stayed here almost every summer since I was born. Hasn't changed one bit. Rooms have a home like feel and the staff is always nice to our big group. If you want to experience Van Buren in a real Missouri backwood, hometown feel, I feel this is a great place to stay.

I really wanted to like this motel, I really wanted to have all the quaint and nostalgic quirks that make old locally owned motels charming. Sadly the Hawthorn had none of these. The Pros - They were friendly. Check in was easy and they made sure we had the rooms we needed. Towels - we had lots of towels in...

I've been going to the Hawthorne Motel since I was a kid. Since Teddy S. has bought the place it's a wonderful place to stay. The pool always looks good and clean and Teddy and his staff will help you with anything you need.If you ask real nice he'll cook steaks by the pool and sit around and play guitar...
