Thanks for sharing the information with us. It's very helpful to folks who
are not used to staying there. I did have to laugh, though, when you
mentioned the stop light and "getting in and out" ! :-) Being from
hectic traffic as in the Atlanta area, Batesville's traffic is a
breeze! But, it is nice to know that they have put a traffic light up
there. We have stayed twice at the Best Western, then when the Ramada was
opened up, we began to stay there all the time. I am excited over the idea
of a new motel now, with the opening of the Holiday Inn Express. Do you
know if the "Express" means that they don't have a pool?
I am always excited to see the new businesses and growth each time that we
visit Batesville. And, of course, you! ;-)
