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... More

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... More

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!... More

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! We wanted to extend our thanks and appreciation to all of you and look forward to seeing you in the near future. The Whatleys

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... More

Wow. Great location. Right next to the casino. If you want to spend a restful night this is not the place to stay. Trains running by most of the night across the street and the whistles were very loud. My wife was not happy that I picked this hotel to stay at. Drove home early in the day just to... More

Otherwise find another place. Noisy, dirty. No safe. No fridge. Small. They have a shuttle to Casino but if you walk it is a good hike since the closest entry is fenced off and across a field that was muddy with no sidewalks. No slots in this building. And no lifts and no one even offered to help with luggage.... More

I was in town with my family for a powwow at the Choctaw Event Center and this lodge was pretty close. I was a little unsure where the motel entrance was from the road. In years past, I had driven through the casino/grand hotel parking lot to get to the lodge. Due to construction, I had to guess my way... More
