Great place to stay and have breakfast, lunch or dinner. Bowling alley with bumper cars and other things to make your stay more enjoyable. They do have truckers rates, which we can always use. We will stay again! Thank you for the clean rooms and friendly staff. See you soon! A++++

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.

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
