Positive Reviews

Convenient roadside location

Many reviewers found the location of this hotel just off Interstate 40 to be convenient as it put them within six miles of downtown Oklahoma City, about ten minutes' drive away. It also enabled hassle-free access to the airport, the popular Bricktown district, sports venues and other area attractions.

Positive about customer service

Reviewers largely had praise for the customer service at this hotel, often calling personnel friendly, attentive and helpful. Check-in was often said to be swift too.

Upbeat about rooms, facilities and value for money

The rooms reportedly had a good range of amenities including fridges, microwaves and hairdryers. Guests often said the rooms were straightforward but more than adequately clean and comfortable for a shorter stay. However, a few travelers said they found the bedrooms and bathrooms were small. Considering the usually competitive room rates, many guests felt their stays at this hotel represented decent value for money. The free parking lot was a bonus as were the complimentary hot breakfast and inviting pool area.

Negative Reviews

Cleanliness and maintenance grumbles

Although many guests said the hotel was clean and in a good state of repair, some reviewers encountered cleanliness and maintenance issues. There were claims of dated decor, malfunctioning door locks and aging carpets in some rooms. A few guests also thought the exterior was tired-looking. Cleanliness issues reported included occasional bathroom mold and stained bedding.

Nuisance noises and smells

Traffic noise from the nearby freeway was a nuisance for some light sleepers. There were also occasional reports of lingering smoky smells or musty odors in certain areas of the building.

No elevators

The lack of elevators at this property disappointed some guests, especially those with mobility issues.
