I ended up staying at the Tulsa Select Hotel (formerly a Holiday Inn branded hotel) on May 29th 2009 as a result of a lowest price rate I received from hotwire.com. I paid $43 +tax for a single night stay but the advertised rate is only $7 more: $49.99. This hotel is near many modest resturants and is a good value for the money. Me, my wife and our two kids enjoyed our stay after a long day at the Tulsa zoo.
So what do you get for $50? Well how about a room larger than most. The room was larger than the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, FL or the Coronado Springs room located on Disney property. Both of these rooms go for $220 and $185, respectively. You get a clean room that has some dated furniture and a free breakfast. The beds, while not the most comfy were some of the cleanest I have seen in a long while. The breakfast includes eggs, toast, french toast, sausage, hashbrowns, cereal, juices and fruit.
So what should you be wary of before booking? Well, this is a 2 1/2 star hotel. It is located next to a major highway although we did not notice the notice while sleeping. Yes it has a pool and many of the basic necessities but don't expect the friendliest of counter staff (although I was given the exact room I wanted -- top floor with two twin beds and was asked how my stay was as I left).
If you are a value-minded hotel-seeker, this may be your best bet. You are basically getting a $80/night room for $50. Everything worked well: a/c, minifridge, microwave, tv, channel lineup, cleanliness of of carpert, bathroom, beds. I saw none of the problems others reviewers mentioned and I never saw anyone at the front desk complaining about anything while I was there.
Many of the other reviews had me worried about this hotel and I wanted to take the time to make it known that this is not a bad place to stay. I am wondering if the Select Tulsa Hotel recently dropped their prices? I wonder if some of the reviews here would not have been so critical if the rate was only $50/night. If you are the type of person who would rather save $30+/night and put up with a few "needs upgrading" items around the hotel, this place should be on your short list--Good Value!
