We recently stayed at Oak Tree Inn in McAlester. Our stay was extended due to car troubles - not what any of us want on a trip. However, what could have been a miserable experience was made bearable by a most amazing, accommodating manager and staff. We had already checked out when we realized our car would not start. When AAA couldn't get it running, we realized we were going to be in McAlester longer than planned. We were immediately checked back in - our same room - provided additional coffee - and received breakfast vouchers for the next morning (note - Oak Tree does not provide breakfast on the premises, however a breakfast voucher is provided for the Denny's at the intersection).
Day 2 at Oak Tree involved calling AAA again for a tow to the only import place in town, then trying to find a rental car at one of two places in town. As check-out time approached, we gathered our things and put them in our stranded car while we hoped for a call back to confirm we could get a rental car. When we tried to check out, Oak Tree wouldn't even take our key cards! Said they'd extend our stay as long as necessary until we found a car. Then, offered us a ride to the rental location!
Another note: Beyond the parking lot at Oak Tree is a wooded hillside with creek running past. On a beautiful sunny cool morning, we saw several deer, grazing, and drinking from the stream. We saw a crane "fishing".
Oak Tree Inn is a basic hotel, reasonable priced, with coffee, microwave, and fridge in the rooms, and free wi-fi. The rooms are spotless and well furnished. The location is well hidden behind Lowe's on highway 69 - walking distance to restaurants and other shopping. We'd stay again.
