We stayed here for a quick few hours of sleep on a road trip. The cute 50's decor was a welcome change of pace. The beds were very comfortable, there were no bugs, and the place was immacculate. However our room had a smell as if it had not been used in a while. It was also very damp. We... More

Thank you for your review about your visit with us. I am sorry about the smell in your room. We have since taken care of this problem in many of our rooms. It had to do with the major rain we had prior to your visit and the way it affected the ac's ability to remove the humidity. My apologies... More

Convenient and roomy truck parking behind hotel, pet friendly! Super safe grounds and well lit hotel. Love the pictures and decor on the walls in the lobby and in the halls. The price is great and the staff is always friendly. You have got to stay here when you are in the area! :-)

This hotel is fun with a 50s theme that is really well done. Tons of old records and posters of celebs adorn the halls and the dining area looks like a 50s diner. We had an "I Love Lucy" room complete with themed shower curtain and light switch covers. The pool was ok and the rooms were quiet. The luxury... More

The hotel's decor, both in the rooms and in the common areas, invokes the USA during the 50s and early 60s; lots of Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Lucy, etc. It's all nicely done, and a fun experience if you lived through that time or have an interest in that period. Our room and the property overall were very clean... More

My husband and I frequently stay in McAlester, OK, on the way to Texas. Unhappy with the quality of our accommodations, and especially the restaurants nearby, we decided to try the Happy Days motel. We were quite pleased! Not only was the room about $20 cheaper than the better known chains, but it was exceptionally clean, with very comfortable beds.... More

I stayed here for business on several occasions. I travel often and must say , this is one of the cleanest hotels I've stayed in. The decor is adorable and the staff is so accommodating ! I would recommend happy days for anyone traveling through. Thumbs up!!

We were to be returning customers for the third year, but they lost our reservation due to computer crash! However they were able to call my personal cell phone to discuss our reservations 3 or 4 days prior to our arrival. I had made the reservation June 17th 2013, for June 20 & 21 nights, 2014, received conformation numbers for... More

As before, I apologize for your inconvenience due to not having your reservations because of computer crash. We were able to move the Storm Riders here from the other hotel due to cancellations. You had stated you did not want to deal with us any more, so I did not contact you to be moved to our hotel, which I... More

We have passed this hotel quite a few times on our way to and from Texas. We finally decided to stay on our way home and were not disappointed. Very clean. We had a room with two queen beds, so there wasn't much spare room, but we just stopped to sleep so it was fine. The pool looked refreshing and... More

I work in McAlester, yet live a good 100 miles from there round trip and often stop in at the Happy Days hotel when working late, during stormy weather, and just for a summer nights dip in the pool.
