“Nike tennis shoes found”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2014 via mobile

This is a re-review if you will. Earlier this year I wrote a review about my Nike tennis shoes being stolen from the room by a housekeeper. Well two months later I went back and decided to inquire about my shoes again. They had them. The housekeeper did pick it up but somehow it got mixed up in laundry or something they said. The Good News Is I Have Them Back.

We stayed at this hotel on July 26, 2014 for the Counting Crows concert. The room was no bigger than 10 X 10 with no sound insulation and at a rate of $249.00 for one night. We were treated to a love making session in the room next to us at 2:00 AM, someone on the other side snoring, and the person with a bladder problem above us. Needless to say we did not sleep and left at the crack of dawn. So much for a 249 night stay. BTW the concert was outstanding.

This has to be the worst motel I have EVER stayed in. To small a room, rate was way outrageous for size of room and the value was not there. Bathroom had no vanity at all to put your things on, it was wet and muggy in the room. When we walked into the motel it was HOT and horrible feeling. I did not like the way it made feel with my asthma. This place gets a big thumbs down from me and I will never stay here EVER again. If I didn't have my dog with me I would have stayed at the Grand Tower. They make it look so wonderful on the website. NOT! We have stayed in a lot of out of the way places and had better for this amount of money.

Very nice rooms, excellent decor and comfort. Stayed 2 adults 4 kids. The highlight is the newly redone pool area. Swim-up bar, more hot tubs, and plenty of chairs and lounge chairs. Excellent staycation for a family with children. Definitely has the resort feel.

First, recognize that ths was originally a Microtel Inn, which means the rooms are quite small, but comfortable and clean. It's a pet-friendly hotel but there is no pet smell in the rooms. Rooms have been revently remodeled. The hot breakfast is more than adequate. On the morning of our stay it included bacon, scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy along with the usual continental offerings. The only negative was that we had to turn the ac all the way own to 62 to get the room cool enoughnfor sleeping, Access to the pools at Choctaw Casino is included.

This was a quick overnight stay for a concert at the casino. The rooms were clean, the beds a tad firm for my liking, double bonus though was a lot of pillows!!! It was comfortable to say the least. It had free breakfast however, I wished it ran a tad later into the morning. This is a casino you know! To bed late, up late. It has been recently renovated, so it's still pleasant on the eyes as far as color and such. Our toilet seat was cracked which was odd, didn't really care, it's a just saying thing.

Choctaw Lodge has a very exceptional and professional staff to assist their guests. Krystylyne Bogart, Kyle Brown (general manager), Andy and Tony were very helpful and friendly! We wanted to extend our thanks and appreciation to all of you and look forward to seeing you in the near future. The Whatleys
