When you spend 12 - 15 nights a month in a hotel, sometimes the best you can hope for is a comfortable bed and a good shower! But when you're greeted by name when you walk through the door it's a little more like visiting a friend than just checking in to another hotel. This hotel is like that, of... More

We cannot adequately express our appreciation for the professional, courteous, genuine service that we received from Lanette at the front desk during our stay. We had a clogged toilet the very first evening of our stay, after 8-5 business hours, which was very embarrassing. Lanette went to our room while we were at dinner and resolved the situation very willingly... More

Can't ask for anything better than walking into an inviting lobby with the aroma of freshly baked cookies and a friendly, welcoming staff member at the desk. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable with a variety of pillow options for your sleeping comfort. My only minor complaint was that there was no breakfast "to go" bag... More

I am a Holiday Inn, Reward Club member with Platinum status and I ask for the upgrade and I was upgraded. The upgrade was up to a room with a bed that so worn out that when you sat on the bed it sank in. If this is the upgraded bed I really don't want to know what the non-upgraded... More

We were very pleased with our one-night stay. Having read some reviews from earlier in the year, I was concerned about cigarette smoke, but I noticed NONE of this - not a whiff, either in the hallways, lobby, or in the room itself. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of this hotel, especially since I nearly paid an extra... More

After a long day of driving from Chicago we decided it was time to stop (10:00 PM). The desk clerk was a gift for weary travelers. Very friendly and knew exactly what we needed. The room was beautiful, clean, quiet. She knew the parking spot right next to the room was available. The beds and linens were so very nice,... More

I stayed while traveling through Tulsa on business. This is an average property, rooms are adequate but could use a bit of updating. They do have a very nice and well equipped fitness room.
