“Good Choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

Booked this hotel with our Choice Privileges points because we found this hotel's price a little on the high side. Pleasant couple checked us in, and gave us cookies, which were really good. The room was clean, with an HDTV, but the remote didn't work very well. We went back to the desk and switched remotes, but it didn't work any better...very frustrating. There is a huge truck stop behind the hotel, with trucks coming and going throughout the night. Left fan going all night to try and drown out the noise. Beds were firm, but not bad. Breakfast was the usual cereal and breads, again not bad at all. Restaurants, and gas stations all available at this exit. Decided to stop here before entering Oklahoma, so we wouldn't have to get on and off the toll roads. Good choice, probably would stay here again.

Truckers could get a nice break from their cab by staying here. Comfortable beds, good showers, lots of channels on the tv, and you might be able to put a bobtail in the front parking. Get 20% of Petro's Iron Skillet meal with room access card. Quick check in and a chocolate chip cookie. I had wi-fi and cell connection problems during my stay.

Shower, that is. The waterfall shower head in the enclosed shower with lots of water pressure offers a luxurious shower after a long day.

PROS: the shower experiences, nightlight, RV parking in front, next to Petro 44 truck stop

CONS: no frig or micro, no closet, no wired internet, no recliner, all carbs breakfast, no elevator

Room Tip: Ground floor on front side

I had booked two rooms, one was pet friendly for our 6 yr old cat Chloe, the rooms weren't perfect but for $75 the beds were clean and firm. The continental breakfast was nice and well stocked.

The night staff wasn't exactly friendly, but it was 11 pm by the time we checked in and got our keys.

The room 129 did have mold in the shower, hopefully they clean it soon!!

The service was ok. The room shape was cool but so dirty, grimy, & stinky that you couldn't enjoy the uniqueness of the room. Filthy walls, carpet, ceiling, shower fixtues, & burns in the carpet. The bed was about the only clean thing in the room & it was comfortable. The location was good. They had a decent breakfast.

Room Tip: No elevator

While I stayed there, flags in front of the hotel were at half-mast. It was the next month after that deadly tornado destroyed the city.
I went to Joplin for joining disaster volunteer activity and attended to clean up debris for two weeks. It was difficult for me to find economy hotel, but Sleep Inn was final one, I could fortunately cut down the expenses during my stay. It seem the farthest distance that I could go to and from volunteer site before and after working by bicycle.

The receptionists were so friendly, kind and helpful as to offer me to keep the bicycle in a strage inner hotel. Every time I went through in front of reception, they gave me smiles.

The room seemed like American size, single occupied double bed was enough large and comfortable for me. Amenity goods were various.

The location is nearby an interchange of Interstate 44, I felt energy of U.S. physical distribution. The hotel is nearby truck stops, for people who like watching various colored trailers, it will be great location, great many trucks come and go all through the day. Watching Google satellite maps, it could be easily found that many trucks form in orderly lines in the truck stops, even oil spots on the parking lots are clear.
One day a friend of mine who saw me to the hotel said about the atmosphere around there as very American.

I went out to restaurant "Iron Skillet" next to the hotel, enjoyed fresh salad bar my fill every evening. After came back from volunteer site before taking shower, it became my custom to drink a large glass of tomato juice for cooling down of up-hill biking.
The restaurant is situated in "Petro Stopping Centers", I could obtain everything at the same time of meal. Though the location of the hotel is very suburb but I had absolutely no inconvenience.

Stayed June 2011, traveled solo
