Named for its location on the border between Texas and Arkansas, this city is technically two cities – one in each state – smooshed together. Snap a photo of the historic United States Post Office and Courthouse, which straddles the state line, before taking your camera over to the Ace of Clubs House, an Italianate Victorian house-turned-museum with a floorplan shaped like a playing card club. Once you’re done, mooch around the local flea and farmers’ markets or hit the various hiking and biking trails. If you’re ticking off states on your travels, be sure to make the 30mi (48km) journey to Louisiana and the 50mi (80km) car ride to Oklahoma while you’re in town. Need a place to stay?

1. Hilton Garden Inn Texarkana, for an efficient stay

Just off the I-30, this Hilton hotel is attached to the Texarkana Convention Center, so expect many of the other guests to be conference attendees. The upside to that is excellent efficiency, a really decent breakfast buffet and super fast wifi. When you want to relax, grab a lounger by the outdoor pool or soak in the built-in bubbling hot tub. There’s also a simple restaurant in-house, as well as a 24-hour convenience store, ideal for late-night snacks.

2. Hampton Inn Texarkana, for working and relaxing

Another one from Hilton, this pet-friendly hotel is conveniently located a 10-minute drive from downtown, so attractions like the Perot Theatre and Ace of Clubs House are within easy reach. When you fancy some retail therapy, it’s also only 4mi (6.4km) from Central Mall. If you find yourself having to work while in town, the rooms have desks, otherwise you can relax in the indoor pool, work out at the gym or take your time over the complimentary hot breakfast.

3. Best Western Plus Texarkana Inn and Suites, for a welcoming vibe

Located just over the state line into Arkansas, this small, non-smoking hotel has a warm and welcoming vibe, with fast wifi, onsite parking and a full breakfast all included in your stay. Head out for the day to the Texarkana Regional Arts Center, Photograph Island, or the Four States Fairgrounds, all less than 4mi (6.4km) away, then return for a quick session in the gym and a splash in the outdoor pool.

4. Residence Inn by Marriott Texarkana, for extended visits

Marriott’s Residence Inns are designed with long stays in mind, and this three-star Texarkana number has everything you need for a week or more. Wake up in your spacious suite and enjoy free bacon and eggs or something lighter from the varied buffet. Get out and visit nearby sights, like Texas A&M University or the Perot Theatre and historic downtown. Don’t feel like going out? Relax in the indoor pool, take a bath in your marble bathroom or cook dinner in your room’s full kitchen.

5. Country Inn and Suites by Radisson, for added perks

With free cookies on arrival, a living room complete with a roaring fire in the winter months, and a make-your-own-waffles station at breakfast, this doesn’t feel like just any chain hotel. All those little touches, as well as your usual hotel perks like the heated indoor pool and hot tub, make this an enticing stay. The hotel is around 5mi (8km) from downtown, so you’ll need to drive to the sights, but there are three grills and steakhouses literally on your doorstep. That’s dinner sorted.

6. Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott Texarkana, for services that go the extra mile

Fairfield goes the extra mile, especially when catering for niche requirements. Breakfast includes vegetarian or dairy- and gluten-free options. Pet-friendly rooms are available. Flexible workstations are scattered throughout the hotel, so you can set up your laptop wherever you like. Check in is digital and contactless, and the gym is 24/7. The contemporary king rooms and one- and two-bedroom suites all enjoy access to the heated indoor saltwater pool.

7. Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites Texarkana, an IHG Hotel, for family vacations

Holiday Inn does comfort well: cozy down under the plush duvet, nestle against your choice of pillows and don’t worry about being woken prematurely, thanks to the black-out shades on the windows. This hotel on the Arkansas side of the state line is a great choice for families, as rollaway beds and cribs can be added to your room without fuss, and the Holiday Springs Water Park is just minutes away.
