Welcome to Best Court


The Best Court is a collection of connected cottages, (many with garages) a home and a restaurant all on a 1-acre parcel in Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas. We are here to preserve a part American Heritage, the of the birth of automobile travel and it's benefactor the Motor Court. We are 1 of the few remaining 1930's continually operating (in our case for 85 years) early Motor Courts. The Best Court is one of only a handful of the 60,000 once proud Motor Courts and Motel that sprang up along new Interstates and US routes and roadway grids from 1925 thru the 1960's. This was America's budding romance with automobile travel, roadside tourist attractions, car hop dining and pull up dairy bars. The Best's 17 "sitting garages" create an amazing experience of guests being able to interact with likeminded visitors.
We believe that all restored motel's, which is a huge new phenomenon in the USA has potential for real, fluid community. The Best is thrilled to be a part of this movement. We believe that hospitality brings joy, that it is not servitude, but genuine concern for making others happy and smile. We thank you for your support, restoring this beautiful piece of American history has taken much time, treasure, mental fortitude and tears. Please support us!

Best Motor Court disinfects with State of the Art Electrostatic Sprayers

We always have a sanitary bagged TV remote! Guests are always posting "Cleanest Hotel they have ever stayed in!"

Traditional hotel cleaning methods are not effective enough in a Covid-19 world. New tech-enabled sanitation and safety products are now available and used by the Best Tourist Court to assist in guest safety.

Best Motor Court uses the patented Victory Innovation Company's electrostatic sprayers which "supercharges" disinfectants. The sprayer gives your disinfectant solution a positive electric charge that causes the droplets to be attracted to neutrally charged surfaces like desks and walls, and to repel each other, leading to an even distribution over surfaces. After a few minutes, the disinfectant kills the germs and the liquid evaporates.

At the Best we only spray an extremely safe disinfectant solution developed by VitalOxide. Vital Oxide has been rated as a Category 4 disinfectant by the EPA, the safest rating the EPA awards. So safe it is approved to be sprayed in commercial kitchens for disinfecting!

Delta Airlines is using the Victory sprayers to disinfect its planes, and pro sports teams like the NFL's New York Jets and Atlanta Falcons are using them in their facilities. Marriott recently announced it would be using electrostatic sprayers to sanitize rooms in all of its worldwide locations as soon as they can obtain the multi- month backordered Victory Sprayers. The Best Tourist Court has two of these highly sought after and expensive sprayers on site!

As hospitality reopens electrostatic sprayers are a huge part of the solution! Best Tourist Court is proud to be an industry leader providing a safety first, over cost, standard when it comes to our guests and staff!

We want our guests to have peace of mind when staying at the Best Tourist Court! We believe we are currently the only hospitality property in Hot Springs National Park using this new disinfecting protocol, the Victory Electrostatic sprayer along with the Vital Oxide disinfectant! We may be the longest continuously operated Tourist Court remaining in the USA...but we are in the forefront of our industry and a leader when it comes to the responsibility of our guest health and safety!

You can rest well in Hot Springs National Park knowing the Best Tourist Court has your safety as their priority.

Hot Springs National Park


In the onetime gambling capital of the US, where Mobsters and movie stars of the 1920's,30's and 1940's played, the unlikely, mostly, Federal Government run town, of Hot Springs National Park flourished. It's Central Avenue majestically lined with elegant giant lush Southern Magnolia trees is still operated by the Federal Government and the National Park Service. The opposite side of the street is privately owned. The Federal side is lined with historic Bathhouses. Across the tree lined street quaint shops, restaurants and tourist attractions reside in buildings, built in the 1920's and earlier. Central Avenue runs over 1 mile along Bathhouse Row to Ouachita Avenue. Hot Springs was then touted as a physical and spiritual retreat, where visitors could be "Cured" with no matter what ailed them! All cures were possible with the powers of the Hot Springs Mineral Water. In 1933 the Best Court began catering to those driving their automobiles to Hot Springs numerous medical centers and their doctors. According to Stephen Hunter in his novel "Hot Springs" the Best Court was a gangster hideout. The Best Court is also said to have been Marylin Monroe and Joe DiMaggio preferred lodging in the "Corner Suite" at the Best Court The National Park, though not as large as other National Parks, offers miles of scenic hiking, mountain biking and leisurely drives under a summer lush canopy of trees, with occasional pull offs to view the surrounding terrain. There are steaming fountains and US Government spring water bottle filling stations along the Park. In the early warm Spring weather horses race at Oaklawn Race Track, as they have since their first race in Hot Springs Spring 1904. Slot machines and card gambling has remained legal and flourishing at Oaklawn too. Famous for some of the purist lakes in the USA Hot Springs this is a fisherman's paradise.
