I was heading to Kansas for a funeral, rolled into McAlister, OK looking for a hotel for the night. The Happy Days Hotel caught my eye, so that is where we stopped. The decor is 50's rock and roll including a pink Cadillac! The rooms were immaculate and the bed was one of the most comfortable hotel room beds I... More

The only reason I did not rate this as excellent is because the room was very small. Otherwise, it was clean and the staff was very friendly. The breakfast bagel was very fresh. We used the guest laundry was helpful on the road trip.

Found this hotel on a search. Checked reviews and cleanliness was the highlight plus the fun 1950's decor. It certainly lived up to the reviews. Very nice. The restaurant, Angel's, also owned by the group, was exceptionally clean, friendly, and great food at a very reasonable price. Would stay there again.

For 5 years in a row I visit McAlester, OK & always stay at the Happy Days Hotel & this is for a good reason... It's always GREAT! Always clean, the staff is so attentive, the location is convenient, there's wonderful options of nearby attractions, & restaurants. The theme is fun with a 50's flair, Elvis, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe,... More

We have stayed here before and will stay here again in the future. It is a locally owned hotel dedicated to the Happy Days era. We opted for the larger room (two queen beds) on the back side of the main building to avoid the traffic roar from the Highway 69 Bypass in front of the hotel. The room was... More

Nostalgic pictures and memorabilia line the halls and decorate the rooms, which are clean and comfortable.

I booked my room through Expedia then called and talked to Cindy personally the next day to confirm my late arrival. My room (110) was James Dean themed. One huge mirror in there.
