it is indeed very close to the airport....as a matter of fact, my early morning flight was postponed and I had a chance to make another at 6am. This was at 515am. I have to return a rental car, rebook and get through security---and I made the flight! This is as much about the Little Rock airport as the distance from the hotel, but you get the point. All in all this is a nice place, adequate accommodations but there is little else to do in the area. Aside from a sports bar and Waffle House across the way, there is nothing. The breakfast buffet doesn't start until 630am so if you have an early flight, you are out of luck. The staff was very friendly, helpful and proficient.
