“Doesn't smell good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Our first impression walking in to this motel is that it didn't smell very nice, it was dimly lit, and generally looked unwelcoming. The man at the front desk seemed nice enough, and the motel seemed to offer most of the standard amenities - and it did - but the $55.00 price for a large king bed suite also seemed a little low.

The room was clean enough, but didn't smell fresh. There were obvious signs of age and wear, and a makeover seemed overdue. A/C, TV and WiFi internet all worked fine (5 bars on the WiFi in the room - unheard of! )

Breakfast was continental in style, although they called it hot. No fresh eggs. Just waffles and biscuits and gravy for hot food.

Try to get a room near the center of the complex, so that you won't have to walk up any stairs to get to the first floor rooms (access sidewalk is at a slant to the horizontal).

Don't stay here- it reeks! Crap location away from anything remotely interesting in Oklahoma City and room came with an enduring stench that followed me to my next hotel and beyond. This is only good value if you're looking for a dump!

If you're on this kind of budget you'd be better off staying in a hostel / college dorms. They would offer better location and surely cleaner standards.

Hotel staff were pleasant but nothing could overcome just how awful the room smelt- gross!

Don't stay here, the smell in the room was disgusting, we stayed in Oklahoma City for 2 nights, needless to say the 2nd was not spent here! It wasn't expensive so we weren't expecting luxury but at the very least you would expect it to be clean. It is also a little far out of town, we stayed in Bricktown the next night, was a lot more expensive but worth it.

Very dirty, reception desk rude, no clean towels, rooms not clean, would not take shoes off, floor gross, bed not comfortable. Attracts a bad crowd of people. And young man died 30 feet away from my room same day.!!!

Looking at the place online it seemed we were in for a nice clean place with a comfortable atmosphere. Don't stay there if that is what you are looking for. You are greeted at the front desk with what should be a major red flag - "No Refunds At Any Time" was posted in numerous places. We braved it anyway and regretted it. The halls smelled like an ash tray, the room was grimy and the carpet felt gross (it only took a minute barefoot before the shoes went right back on.

I have stayed in this hotel for 5 years every week for my job. It's always been clean, and comfortable. Although it's time for a some upgrades, I understand this is in the process. Have already experienced their new pillow top mattresses.

My only gripe was that they charged us a $15 early check in fee and did not even offer early check in until I asked to do so (we arrived at noon on our reserved check in day). The $15 was worth it though, as we'd driven all night and needed naps!! And the front desk clerk was not very friendly but he wasn't rude either. He gave us a very nice corner room with new queen beds that were very very comfy. We liked the location of our room too, as it was very near where we parked and had a sweet little balcony. We were away from the poolside of the hotel, and enjoyed the pleasant pool area after our naps. The hotel location is quite near the OKC zoo where we attended an event at the Zoo amphitheater. Our room was clean and quite adequate, no complaints. The wifi service was a bit spotty but worked ok at times. The neighborhood might be a bit questionable but I've seen worse. From time to time, we did see shady looking characters lurking through the parking lot but I don't think they bothered anyone.

Room Tip: we were placed in a corner room on lower level which was a nice location. Ask for a room with new b...
