Happy Days Hotel offers a trip down Memory Lane with its 1950s motif, including a reserved parking space for Elvis and chrome and vinyl kitchen furniture in the breakfast area. Nostalgic pictures and memorabilia line the halls and decorate the rooms, which are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is included and consists of the usual continental menu items and make-them-yourself waffles.... More

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. I was sure not to park in Elvis' space. Didn't want to be All Shook Up. Hot Belgian Waffles for breakfast were wonderful. I was offered the... More

I have reviewed this little gem before and I stand by my glowing review from before. I wanted to review my recent stay at the Happy Days Hotel there in McAlester, Oklahoma. I booked the Executive Suite or Room 100 which is esentially a small two room (yes, two actually queen beds) apartment. The room has all the trapping of... More

Easy to get to and the staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was great the cable connection needs to be updated but still was a cool place to stay! Would love to take the grandkids there for a fun weekend trip for both kids and adults.

This is my husband's favorite choice when visiting family. It is clean and reasonably comfortable. I would say average value for the price. The bed is just is OK as is the breakfast. That said, I don't object to staying there and have never had any major issues with it.

I can't say it was not what I had expected from looking at the reviews before. It is clean but dated and yet the Diner was very good and people there very pleasant. The worst thing was I had no cell phone for 3 days in McCallister with verizon.... I told them that they should tell people that ahead as... More

Enjoyed staying at Happy Days. Restaurant just across the parking lot that gave a discount with stay at hotel. Can easily drive to casino on side road. You don't have to get back on major highway. It was quiet, clean, and personnel were very friendly. Wifi was easy to use, refrigerator was cold. Just a great place for the money.... More

We stayed the night on our way to Wilburton and it couldn't have been better. We had so much fun and the staff took really good care of us, being a family of 6 we had plenty to keep everyone busy. We really enjoyed the family fun center. Thanks so much for a good time. We will be back.

Thank you so much for the great review! We appreciate it and are very glad you enjoyed yourselves. The Diner and the family fun center have been a great asset to Happy Days hotel. You can just make a mini vacation of a weekend and never get in your car for anything. More

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
