Comments: (9/26/14) - "Wow, what a fantastic place; beautiful very clean barn and stalls, so close to interstate. Judy and her husband met me at the barn, helped me unload my horses and feed and water them. Judy cleaned my trailer and almost wouldn't take a tip from me. Wonderful, wonderful people and love their place. I could go on and on what they did for me. You won't go wrong staying here! Thank you Judy; I hope to stay there again.". . . (2/10/15) - "We had a wonderful experience overnighting with the Holtzmans. Judy's husband was waiting for us at the bottom of the driveway with a flashlight so we wouldn't miss our turn, and they immediately made us feel at home. They had a stall ready for our horse and we were able to turn him out in the covered arena for a bit to stretch his legs. The facility is convenient to the interstate and the barn was safe with large stalls. We had a fantastic experience and would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone who needs overnight stabling in the area. Thanks again!!!". . . (1/31/16) - "Fabulous place! We were met by the owners and our every need was met with a smile. The stalls were immaculate and they were HUGE!!!!!!!!! The water buckets were equally as clean and filled to the top. We had our living quarters trailer and we hooked to the electric with absolutely NO issues!!!!! Easy to find, easy in and out with a circle drive and some of the friendliest folks I've met in a long time. I can only hope that my travels take me to this area again as I'd love to stay and have a longer chat!". . . (6/26/16) - "Mr and Mrs Holtzman went out of their way to make our stay very comfortable . Upon a very late arrival we were met with great hospitality . I recommend this facility to all traveling equine families. We were pleased and our horses were also pleased to break up our trip so they got a break from the horse trailer. Thank you Mr and Mrs Holtzman. The Sealy Family :-)". . . (8/28/16) - "Very nice family. Met us when we arrived. Nice big and clean stall. Would not hesitate to stay again and will do so on our return trip. Thank you for a pleasant first experience with my treasured mare.". . . (9/15/16) - "I couldn't have asked for anything better! We got in really late but the owners were up and waiting for us. The horses had a beautiful green paddock with just enough space to roam, but not enough to act goofy and get hurt. Easy RV hook up, easy in and out. Thank you so much!!!". . . (11/11/17) - "This horsemotel is particularly clean and we readily felt at home. I strongly recommend this site!". . . (4/7/18) - "Judy is absolutely the best! I arrived close to 11PM. She gave great directions, walked to the mailbox with a flashlight to make sure I saw where to pull in. Circle drive that was easy to get in & out of. Very nice stalls & even had a large stall for our mare & foal. We have stayed 2x & would absolutely recommend staying with Judy! Thank you so much!!". . . (9/13/18) - "If you are stopping with your horse in the Little Rock area, I highly recommend Holtzman Horse Motel. Judy and her husband went above and beyond for my horse, Bello, and me. My trailer broke down as soon as I drove off with it to my hotel. I was traveling alone to my new home in Texas and didnít know what to do. Judy jumped into action and called me a mechanic as soon as I told her my problem and assured me over and over that Bello could stay there as long as I needed to until my trailer was fixed. Her husband came out to help and let us use some of his tools to try to take off the broken axle I had. A few days later, I came back with a trailer to get Bello to our new home. I ended up coming there very late and would be leaving at night. Judy texted me to make sure I arrived to my destination in one piece and to make sure that Bello was ok. These people went above what they needed to and I canít thank them enough for everything they have done. If I ever pass through the area again and need to house my horse for a few hours, I will definitely be using Holtzman Horse Motel again.". . . (5/16/19) - "An amazing place to stay. Safe, clean, great hosts, close to lodging and food. Will absolutely stay here again!". . . (6/30/19) - "Judy met us at the end of the driveway so we couldnt miss it and helped my husband and me get our horse settled. She checked on him and made sure he always had water. Our stall let out into a grass filled turnout which was very nice! The facilities and people were lovely. Judy and her husband took the time to chat with us and gave recommendations for lodging and restaurants! Great experience!"

Comments: (8/30/15) - "We stopped over at Circle L twice during August 2015 with our 5 year old mare. We HIGHLY recommend Circle L and will definitely stop there again in the future. Mrs Langston was a great host - responsive, reliable, helpful, friendly and flexible. Her facilities are wonderful, quiet and private with good grass and plenty of parking. Circle L is only a few minutes from the highway and a perfect stopping point on the way from Texas or Louisiana. Blytheville has a good choice of hotels and we loved the Chile Relleno at El Puerto!.". . . (11/5/15) - "Stayed one night in October passing through to Louisiana. This is a great place to stay. We were met promptly by the barn manager who is a very nice fellow. Our horses had stalls across from each other so they could see each other. We were able to turn our horses out in the indoor arena so they could roll and have some freedom before putting them away. The stalls were huge and bedded deeper than mine at home. There was a wheelbarrow available to pick out the stalls. The place was spotless! I would stay here again.". . . (7/16/16) - "Best place we've stayed at with our 2 horses! Very clean facility, very easy access, stalls were clean and pre-bedded, very friendly people with everything you need. Many stalls and great arena!". . . (8/6/16) - "If you are ever traveling south there is an awesome equine motel in Blythesville, Arkansas named CIRCLE L EQUINE. I moved my horses from Missouri to Florida this week and had the truck checked before I left. I still had trouble on the interstate that took over 5 hours to fix. In the middle of the night Susie Langston opened her barn for me. Her facility is beautiful; clean, extremly well thought out, easy access for large rigs, large, well bedded stalls and cared for with lots of love by one of the nicest people i have ever met; Roger. Susie was extremely kind, understanding, friendly and knowledgeable. She helped me so much and relieved so much stress. I was so worried about the horses and once they were tucked in to their stalls till the evening (just too hot to drive during the day) it made me feel everything was going to be ok! She also checked my horses and watered them through out the day. She was very concientious and helpful. It was a blessing! If you ever travel that way with horses on I-55 it is worth it to stop. Hopefully, it will be a planned stop for you. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Thank you!". . . (8/18/16) - "Great set up and very close to the highway. Excellent stalls and host friendliness! Pretty close to hotels and restaurants. A perfect stop over to-from Texas.". . . (10/28/16) - "Would definitely come back again. Susie was so wonderful and helpful to us.". . . (7/18/18) - "Susie went above and beyond to help us with some difficulties we were having with our trailer. She could not have been more accommodating or helpful. Our ponies were very comfortable under fans in their large stalls after they enjoyed some turnout in individual paddocks. I highly recommend Circle L.". . . (7/24/18) - "Beautiful setup, I highly recommend Circle L Equine!". . . (5/16/19) - "An amazing place to stay. Safe, clean, great host, close enough to lodging and food. Will absolutely stay here again!"

Comments: (11/10/15) - "Very nice couple and very accommodating. Arrived while the rain was pouring down.They were very helpful and although our horses did not like the box stalls (no fault of owners), they rearranged their barn to accommodate our horses in open pens with barn shelters....even made cookies for us before we left in the morning. Truly good people.". . . (9/16/17) - "Don't pass up this horse motel! Hope's love for horses and animals becomes evident with the wonderful care she gives! She had high quality grass hay and fresh clean water ready when our horses arrived. Our horses loved it so much they did not want to leave! Hope even took care of our dog, bird and fish!! She has a very warm heart, your animals will be in great hands! We would definitely board again!"

I only put nuetral on close to other facilities because I didn't leave the farm at all so I don't know. Would definitely layover here again. My horses were happy and comfortable!!"

Comments: (7/13/19) - "I will not be able to say enough about the hospitality Lisa and Dave offer. I could not find a fair grounds or place to stay with my horse on travels and the night was getting longer. I called, dropped calls, text and made communication enough to let Lisa know we would not be able to arrive until 1 am from the location we were at. She was fine with that, met us at the drive made sure we knew where everything was, help us get anchored for the night before turning in her self. They offer simple accommodations that are a saving grace. They are clean and sooo accommodating."

Comments: (7/9/12) - "Bobby and Cathy were so so nice. We felt like they were our nextdoor neighbors. Both were extremely knowledgeable with horses because their daughter competitively rodeoed in school and they currently have horses. Their location was very convenient to the interstate and easy to get access. Their house, barn, and property were immaculate. We even got to swim in their pool. Before we left, they sent us on our journey home with some of the best tomatoes I have eaten in a long long time!! I HIGHLY recommend staying with them. They are "salt of the earth" folks! We wish them all the best!". . . (8/11/12) - "The Bowers were AWESOME. Nicest people on the planet. They went above and beyond to help us with everything we needed.". . . (6/5/15) - "We were highly impressed with our stay! These great folks went above and beyond to be gracious hosts to us! Absolutely would recommend to anyone!". . . (4/18/17) - "This was the most peaceful place we stayed at along our way across country. Kathy and Bobby are a delight and we enjoyed visiting with them. Our horses were happy in a large safe turnout pasture. The sunset was wonderful and the road in and out was clear and smooth. A very restful evening for our horses and us.". . . (3/28/18) - "I stay at 2B farms everytime I buy a horse and absolutely love staying here as do my horses!! Thank you, Bobby and Cathy, for all you do and have done for me. I will always stay with you! Love 2B Farms... the gorgeous pasture, clean, safe stalls, electricity, close to town and everything you need and NICE people. Doesn't get any better than this and I stay at a lot of horse motels!!! 5 stars here!". . . (5/2/18) - "Super stalls with deep shavings. Beautiful field to turn our boys out in. Lovely, friendly people. And fresh eggs. Would be back if needed.". . . (5/26/18) - "Bobby and Cathy were great hosts. Make you feel at home. Will come back soon.". . . (6/22/18) - "Absolutely FANTASTIC hosts! Lovely, safe, secure facility with easy access to food, lodging, supplies, etc. Hosts were so easy going and flexible with our arrangements. Would HIGHLY recommend!! 5 STARS for sure.". . . (9/23/18) - "This facility was immaculate and the hosts could not be more accommodating. Grounds are kept beautifully and a cozy apartment for the horse owner/transporter. Very reasonably priced."

Comments: (3/8/18) - "Tara provided great directions which were helpful as we arrived in the dark in October 2017. The stalls were good size with fresh water. We parked our LQ near the barn and spent the night; we had no need for water or power. I am not sure if an extension cord could have been run to the trailer. Tara welcomed our dogs, too. We would definitely stay again. Thanks, Tara!"
