Complementary bag of popcorn upon check-in
Complementary fresh coffee throughout the day - great selection of sugars & creamers
Well stocked pantry and reasonable prices.
Complementary cookies throughout the day - My daughter and I went down daily to snag some. One day the front desk even called to let us know they were just set out and were still warm!
Very comfy beds
Spacious rooms & bathrooms
Everything was very clean. Everyday housekeeping did purpose-full cleaning in the lobby -from spritzing the plants with water to vacuuming and moping. I got the impression that when they cleaned it wasn't just a mindless job they did for pay. I feel like they cleaned because they take pride in their hotel.
Front desk clerks were very friendly and housekeepers were just sweet as could be
While we were staying there, they had a Halloween party & costume contest for staff families & hotel guests. There was a ton of food and many children and adults came in costume. In general there is a sense of family amongst the hotel workers. Also, they had many of the public areas decked out with Halloween decorations.
The rooms were set up with comfort in mind. Something as small as the alarm clock made the room feel like they thought out how to make it comfortable. For example, the subtle alarm clock display was easy on the eyes - not the harsh red numbers that glare across the room.
Plenty of wall outlets
Nice furniture. One desk clerk told me that the reclining chairs are custom made.
They welcome pets. They require a deposit of $40 for the entire stay. That is a really great price! They also give you a magnet for your door to let people know to be mindful of your pet if they enter your room.
Nice bathtub. Really great shower head. The shower curtain bows out, making more room when taking a shower.
Very quiet. We did not hear a peep through the walls and we did not hear anything from the hallway (people or doors shutting) a single time.
Within walking distance to restaurants, liquor store, and Walmart
The only cons to the hotel are the dolly ramps are not in front of the main entrance.They are on either side of it a couple of parking spaces away and they are a bit on the narrow side. There is no awning over the main entrance either.
I would absolutely recommend the Candlewood hotel in McAlester.
