We stayed here for a Valentine getaway. They went beyond to help us have a romantic weekend. They went shopping for us and left flowers, chocolates and champagne in the room for us. It was an amazing time.

The Sassafras Inn, Mena Arkansas
I arrived late in the evening due to heavy rain and an automobile accident on the road. The manager gave me a code to open the door. I left early, but breakfast was fix your own from the refrigerator. The room was very nice with a connecting bath. I would have preferred the manager on site.
