I was here recently for work. This is one of the nicer Holiday Inn Expresses that I’ve been to. I usually stay at a different hotel chain but there were no rooms available the week I was visitng McAlester.
The staff was very friendly and they had cookies out each evening. The rooms were pretty clean and newer. The common areas are kept clean and well maintained. The breakfast was HIE standard. Its location is decent; there are some restaurants within walking distance.
I would say it would not be my first choice if I’m back in McAlester, but not because the hotel was bad, but because Priority Club is a dismal rewards club.
