Nestled among the Ouachita Mountains and surrounded by Hot Springs National Park, the Gold-Inn is a boutique

17-room motor lodge anchored by a 1905 manor.  This arrangement is typical of our historic Park Avenue neighborhood, which boasts numerous stately houses and vintage motorcourts.  The property was once owned by Samuel Fordyce, founder of Mountain Valley Spring Water - whose name you’ll find on the Bathhouse that now houses the Visitor Center for the National Park.

We are Baker + Justin Gold-Smith, a married pair of hospitality professionals with over 20 years collective experience in the industry.  We met while pursuing degrees in Hotel & Restaurant Management at the University of Houston, then moved to New York City where we worked for some of the most legendary hotels in the world.  

 

In 2015 we started our own business, Gold-Inn Hospitality, providing management and consultation services to owners of independent lodging establishments.  We managed bed & breakfasts and inns from Massachusetts to Utah—establishing and improving systems, processes and products to prepare our clients for success.

 

We purchased the Gold-Inn in April 2018, where we now live and work full time, applying our diverse hospitality experience to develop a product we are proud to call our own.  We look forward to welcoming you!
