“Another example of Choice Hotels taking a nice place and making it not...”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

This place appears to have been a Holidome at some point in its life, and a pretty nice one at that. However, in typical Choice fashion, the once very nice rooms still have nice fixtures, but maintenance seems to be non-existent. The shower didn't work right, the tub was badly discolored, and the toilet didn't flush quite right. The countertops were probably cleaned once, and the carpets were too...but neither are now. The bathroom floor had not been mopped either. The HVAC system is pretty loud, but functional. Most hotels that I stay in aren't as nice as this once was, but are almost always nicer than what it is now.

Reviewed 14 July 2011

I am a Choice diamond member and this might be the worst hotel experience I have ever had with Choice brands. At check in the front desk staff had no idea whether the room assigned to me was clean or not and the air conditioning was not working. After a 45 minute wait in the fly infested lobby it was determined that the room was in fact "clean" but the air was not going to be fixed anytime soon. Unsatisfactory in every way. Somehow this hotel was 100% booked so there was no other rooms available. They did offer to pay for me to stay at a competitor hotel across the street but I declined since the person I was traveling with had an acceptable room. $128 for a terrible experience. Will never return.

We stayed at this Clarion while visiting our son, the rooms were clean, and very comfortable beds. Coffee maker in the room, and I could enjoy coffee in the glass cups they provided, I do not like styrofoam cups! Nice pool area with sauna. I will stay here again, they do need to work on their wireless internet, I think a few more routers would cure the speed issue.

We have stayed at this property several times during our biannual trip across the country. We like Holiday Inns and this one takes pets ($20 fee). Previous posts have detailed how it is no longer a Holiday Inn and why. We were concerned that our stay would be disturbed by construction, but fortunately that was not the case. We had a renovated room, new carpet and bedding, paint. It is obviously an older hotel, but the room was fine. Our standard is a good bed, quiet room and good HVAC. All were fine. They still have the wonderful Holiday Inn shower heads and curved shower bar - plenty of hot water.
The bar is a construction zone, but staff was pleasant and service good. We ate at the bar. There is a complementary breakfast buffet - full hot service not just continental.
Overall, a good value.

Reviewed 16 June 2009

I recently went traveling Route 66 with some friends, and we have heard Elk City is a good place to check out, so we thought we would stay a couple of days. We found out that it's no longer a "Holiday Inn" (there was black tarp over the hotel sign), because according to a local newspaper, the hotel lost its franchise (it's now the "Elks Inn"). However, we were assured at the desk that the hotel is being renovated and they expect Holiday Inn to renew its franchise there. It's an older hotel, probably 30 or so years old and would be quite a gem if they got it updated properly. By the looks of it, the rooms had been worked on in the last couple of years, and we all thought they were clean and comfortable and very quiet. The hotel also had an indoor miniature golf course inside a large, sunny atrium which was a pleasant place to relax. I heard no complaints about the food at the hotel restaurant, and the pool area was fine, just a little small. We had no problems with the staff. The only complaints we had were that it was a little expensive, but it's right next to Interstate 40, so easy on and off. I think once they get the hotel updated, the price will be well worth it.
