“Awesome Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

This place is the cleanest hotel. The staff is friendly and accommodting. The decor is so reminiscent of the 50s. The rooms vary in theme from Elvis to Marylin Monroe to Lucy. Very cute. We really enjoyed the outdoor pool area. It has barbeque grills that we took advantage of on two occassions. The breakfast was special with make your own waffles. A must experience!

Room Tip: There is a two bedroom suite with a full kitchen. Great for longer stays.

This is a must stay place when in Oklahoma !!!! Very clean and friendly, we have stayed twice in a 3 week time and hate to leave, it's like a second home. The rooms are some of the best that we have stayed in and the staff is friendly and helpful and don't pass on the free breakfast!!!! I am now addicted to waffles!!! Will stay again and again when in the area!!!

What a find! Excellent pet friendly (no charge) hotel. We stayed in the two bedroom suite and were very happy. Full kitchen and close to bowling alley and activities center. Great for travelling families. Adjacent diner is very good and a hot blast of nostalgia. Staff extremely friendly and helpfull. Rate very reasonable! A definte recommend!

Saw this hotel on tripadvisor and went slightly out of our way to stay there...decorated with Elvis, Marilyn, and more 50's icons. On same property is a cute diner - Angel's - also decorated with a '50's motif and even has two old Cadillacs as part of the landscaping. Behind the hotel is a small bowling alley, mini golf, etc. Just down the frontage road is a casino - fun for everyone!

Owners took an older facility and built a fun, '50s theme into it. Rooms were comfy, cozy and fun. There's an on site diner and a bowling alley and entertainment center behind that is very up to date. Continental breakfast with waffles. This hotel was a bargain and the staff was great!!

I found this hotel reading reviews on Trip Advisor and the hotel was everything, and more, than I expected. My husband and I like it so much, that we stayed again on our return trip to Texas.
First night we stayed in the Marilyn Monroe suite, a nice large room. They were almost booked full with a bowl team of young adults, so the clerk gave us a room away from the possible 'noise'. I didn't hear a peep during the night or morning!
On the return trip, we stayed in the Elvis room. A bit smaller than the other suite. The beds were very comfortable, the internet signal was strong. My husband enjoyed the waffles for breakfast, very tasty! Nice family run business. I just wished we had time to wander in the restaurant that sits just in front of the hotel that is also ran by a family member. We were told that it also had lots of memorabilia.

Recently stayed at the Happy Days Hotel in McAlester, OK. Very clean and comfortable hotel in 50's and 60's decor. Also very inexpensive. Would stay here again. Also, highly recommend Pete's Place in Krebbs, OK a mile east of McAlester for very good Italian food served homestyle in "Little Italy".

Room Tip: We stayed ground level. Nice retuarant next door. 50's and 60's decor at both.
