4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

My middle son was graduating from Army Basic Training at Fort Sill, OK, the third of three sons to serve. I was able to fly his wife in from California, and the youngest son and his wife drove in from Fort Gordon, GA. I needed a place to stay, and I belong to the Best Western rewards program, so that was the first place I looked.

We were able to get three rooms, all adjacent, and were even upgraded to one room being a suite with an extra room with couch, recliner, etc for when we all wanted to gather. And my reward program received a bonus 250 points on top of the regular points and the upgrade. Having driven up from Tucson, I arrived way to early to check in, but stopped by the desk anyway. Two very friendly and helpful young ladies (one a trainee) were able to get the housecleaning crew into one of our rooms quickly so I could at least check in there early and get my car unloaded. It was around this time that I found out there is an Indian Casino next door.

Once I had driven up to Oklahoma City's Will Rogers World Airport (their words, not mine) to get my daughter-in-law and returned, the youngest son and his wife arrived. Another trip up on the next day netted my wife from the airport.

Hotel's outdoor pool was undergoing renovations, but frankly, the weather had gone from 91 to 33 within 24 hours (this is normal), after thunder, lighting, rain and flash floods and tornadoes just the week before, so we didn't need the pool. The indoor pool could be seen from the bar, and it looked fine, if not used much. The bar, on the other hand, was used much.

The restaurant in the hotel, Victoria's Lounge, was decent. Breakfast was a full line of hot and cold breakfast items, always including scrambled eggs and either sausage or bacon, sometimes both, and all the other stuff you would expect. The lunch and dinner menus, as well as snack items, were varied, decently priced and tasty. The lunch on Wednesdays is a German buffet, the likes of which I haven't had since leaving Aschaffenburg in 1979. Sehr Gut!

I don't know that I will ever have reason to go back to Fort Sill and Lawton, but if I do, this is definitely where I will stay.

I was a little concerned when I walked in and had to wait for the clerk to finish texting, but that was the only issue I had. The room was comfortable the bed was good and the pillows were very good. Breakfast was great compared to others, the eggs were obvously prepared in the kitchen instaed of the microwave and bacon was excellent. Even though my room was facing the highway and parking lot it was quiet. Would certainly stay again if in the area.

I did not expect much to be honest. Near the highway, next to a Casino I assumed it would be loud and a bit crazy. We were more than pleasantly surprised to find a clean comfortable room. The beds are insanely comfortable, .... the pillows quite nice ! The breakfast was amazing, We enjoyed our 4 night stay, I highly recommend anyone traveling to the Lawton OK area, as well as other Army parents to stay here !

This is a frequent stop for me. I can't count how many times I've been here. This hotel provides one of my top five favorite hotel hot breakfasts, with more items than most inc. grits, potatoes, bacon, sausage, & very good biscuits & gravy. I always pack away way too much! The beds are always comfortable & the staff friendly & helpful. It is also an easy walk across a parking lot to a casino, with another just a few blocks away, with several choices for food & gas along the way.

Room Tip: Some of the ground floor rooms open on a very nice courtyard with little paths, lots of vegetation.

I stayed here three nights in April as I traveled to Lawton to visit with my mother who has a terminal diagnosis. The first couple of days can only be described as average. The beds are fair and the pillows are firm. The cleanliness of the rooms is questionable, I spilled some water on the floor and used one of the towels to clean it up. The amount of dirt that came up off that carpet was in a word, frightening.

The breakfast is the same everyday, don't get me wrong it's not bad food just little variety. I was checking out on a Saturday am and I went down with my mother to eat breakfast at 6 am which is the appointed time it has been every day I have stayed here, I was informed somewhat tersely by a woman in the dining area that breakfast was not served until 630 am. Odd, I suppose people in hotels don't have flights or places to be on Saturday. Well the lack of professionalism on the part of This woman kinda put me off.

I am sorry to say that the acts of a few ruined this visit for me. This visit is very most likely the last time I will see my mother alive and I am trying hard not to let the unprofessional actions of one or two people sour this moment for either if us.

In summary, this hotel is a fair stay but if there are other venues available stay away.
