I paid 345 for what is a motel 6 at best. The free breakfast was minimal. Almost nothing left by 8;30. Not even milk for cereal. We waited 30 mins for the shuttle. Turns out it was less than a 5 min walk. One of the reasons we paid more was to enjoy the Oasis. Pool was nice and people...

This is a re-review if you will. Earlier this year I wrote a review about my Nike tennis shoes being stolen from the room by a housekeeper. Well two months later I went back and decided to inquire about my shoes again. They had them. The housekeeper did pick it up but somehow it got mixed up in laundry or...

We stayed at this hotel on July 26, 2014 for the Counting Crows concert. The room was no bigger than 10 X 10 with no sound insulation and at a rate of $249.00 for one night. We were treated to a love making session in the room next to us at 2:00 AM, someone on the other side snoring, and...

This has to be the worst motel I have EVER stayed in. To small a room, rate was way outrageous for size of room and the value was not there. Bathroom had no vanity at all to put your things on, it was wet and muggy in the room. When we walked into the motel it was HOT and horrible...

Very nice rooms, excellent decor and comfort. Stayed 2 adults 4 kids. The highlight is the newly redone pool area. Swim-up bar, more hot tubs, and plenty of chairs and lounge chairs. Excellent staycation for a family with children. Definitely has the resort feel.

First, recognize that ths was originally a Microtel Inn, which means the rooms are quite small, but comfortable and clean. It's a pet-friendly hotel but there is no pet smell in the rooms. Rooms have been revently remodeled. The hot breakfast is more than adequate. On the morning of our stay it included bacon, scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy along...

This was a quick overnight stay for a concert at the casino. The rooms were clean, the beds a tad firm for my liking, double bonus though was a lot of pillows!!! It was comfortable to say the least. It had free breakfast however, I wished it ran a tad later into the morning. This is a casino you know!...

Choctaw Lodge has a very exceptional and professional staff to assist their guests. Krystylyne Bogart, Kyle Brown (general manager), Andy and Tony were very helpful and friendly!

The Choctaw Lodge is not quite as ellegant as the Grand Tower, however the rooms are very clean and comfortable at a price a bit lower than the tower. If your on a budget you won't be dissapoint with the Lodge.

This was my second stay at the Choctaw Lodge on February 22-23, 2014. I enjoyed our first stay back in December 2013. The breakfast is nice too. When we checked out, I notices I forgot my Nike Air Shox shoes and I call the hotel 2 hours after we checked out. They said that the room was still being cleaned...
