This is a dying property. Apparently it was a Holiday Inn that the franchise has walked away from and with good reason. From the moment you drive up, you'll know this a hotel on the decline. Terrible maintenance and house keeping. It appears to be popular with the local college kids for a party place. Priceline sells it as a... More

While staying at the Norman, I was assisted by two young men at the concierge in fixing the internet connection with my ipad, which they could have easily dismissed as a problem they didn't know how to fix.

At the beginning of my 2 month stay in Norman hotels, I tried a couple of Marriotts, but that got a bit more expensive than I could do for 60+ days. I went on Priceline and named my price and got this place and stayed here for the rest of my 2 months (except the last day, I splurged). It... More

The only positive about this place is the location. Prime shopping & restaurant nearby. Immediate interstate access, but away from campus traffic. This entire property is dated. Has a funky chemical smell- not just near the pool area, but in the hallways and rooms as well. The property just feels dirty and the bathroom so small you have to be... More
