Took a weekend Fall foliage trip to southeast Oklahoma on the same weekend that everyone else did. Cabins in the woods were booked, but found this cute little place in McAlester. The staff was so accommodating, the famous Italian food was close by, and it was a delightful little place to stay.

I felt the price was very reasonable for a 4 night stay. It's not a Hilton but you get what you pay for. The staff was pleasant, the beds were okay. The breakfast was good but I do wish it lasted until 9:30 or 10 because it was hard getting up and at em before they put it all away...

I was so surprised when walking through the front door and being greeted by so much authentic and wonderful decor that all those fantastic memories,from the greatest time in my life, came rushing back! The place is spotless, wonderful continental breakfast, very friendly staff and very comfortable beds! You won't be disappointed. The price is also very reasonable.

I read reviews before booking and read them after we stayed. We were just not impressed with this hotel--except that our room was spotlessly clean. Our room was tiny and had some kind of smoky mirror all along one wall which we didn't care for. The breakfast selection was okay but limited. No coffee maker in the room. Friendly desk...

Staff was really friendly but I just don't think the hotel was what I expected. The 2 room suite was horrible smelling when we arrived--enough to want to turn right around. This improved after running the air for a while. There is no bedside lamp which was annoying because I like to read at night. Stove door doesn't open because...

We are sorry that your room wasn't what you expected. However, the oven door does open you have to lift up on it. We have rented this room out to long term stays. We hope that you will come back and give us another chance to make things right

I loved the counter shelf and drawer feature over the room air-conditioning unit. Wonderful use of space. Beds were very comfortable, room was larger than expected. Only downside was no fitness center onsite - but they do offer the use of one nearby.

The hotel appeared to be fairly new or recently remodeled. Facilities were in excellent condition. The room was immaculate and had both a microwave and refrigerator. Wifi was fast. The hotel has a '50s theme, and there's a '50s-style diner on an adjacent property. I don't think I've ever stayed at a hotel that offered such value for the dollar....

Thanks for your great review. We are glad you were pleased & had a nice stay. We are actually a 16 year old hotel, with no recent remodel. We just understand that we don't have a chains' reputation to ride on, so we have to make our first impression a good one. We look forward to your next visit.

I stay somewhere nearly every weekend and hands down this has been the best motel ever. The 50's decor was awesome. The staff was delightful and room clean and the bed was perfect. The low price topped it off making this my go to home away from home.

This hotel is cute, comfortable, and most importantly, clean! After having a terrible experience with another hotel, I booked a night here. I was so relieved to spend a great night here in a room with James Dean decor. The room had everything I needed and a continental breakfast was included in the very reasonable price. I will definitely stay...
