I decided to stay here because of the good reviews & I'm glad I did. It was inexpensive , clean and the bed was super comfy. The too was really small but we only came here to sleep for the night since I was too tired to drive. It's decorated in 50's theme and nice. Quiet and peaceful.

I have spent numerous times at this hotel with my husband, my sons and step sons my grandbabies, my sister and my nieces. Always great memories for all the family! Cooked out and swam for my grandson's birthday! Always a great time for the family!

What an absolute Gem! This hotel was nicer than hotels at three times the price. It has a clean, fresh appearance, and the memorabilia from the 50's and 60's is so much fun. Even the most discerning traveler will be pleased. The staff is very helpful and friendly, and the property is so well maintained. Kudos to the owners and... More

This hotel is really fun! Decorated all in 50's decor. The room we stayed in was decorated all James Dean. The staff was friendly and the whole place was immaculate! I wish we had more time to explore, but sadly it was just to catch a few hours of sleep and be on our way. One of the other people... More

Was in town from Oregon for 10 days for a family wedding. Everything is 50's about it. We had the James Dean room. Easy check in and the staff was very friendly and was always helpful. The housecleaning women also was excellent on keeping our beds made and changed daily. The continental breakfast consists of waffles, cold and hot cereal,... More

What a fun hotel. The whole place is decorated up '50s style. We were in the "I Love Lucy" room, which is painted appropriate colors, with Lucy posters all over the wall and a Lucy shower curtain (which, I have to admit, was a little spooky while showering). The hallways are covered with memorabilia. From posters to 45 records, nearly... More

Thank you for your great review! So sorry about the discount issues, I will check into this. The discount for Angel's Diner was on your room key envelope, or you could tell them you stayed here. The bowling coupons should have been 1 per person in the room. If you come here again, please let me know, in advance, &... More

While traveling out of OKC late one evening, we made to McAlester, Okla. After checking TripAdvisor, we chose Happy Days Hotel. Our room was clean, plenty of Hot water and the Bed Slept Well. AC/Heater worked well, Direct TV, took a few minutes to figure out how to use the remote. It is a short drive to the Choctaw Casino.... More

We travel from Missouri to San Antonio several times a year and always plan to stay at the Happy Days Hotel. The hotel is clean, well maintained, friendly staff and quiet. Plus, the room cost less than the room tax in San Antonio. This is a great value. Plus you will love the decorations in the rooms.

This place was great. Neat decorations with pictures of 50's icons such as Ms. Monroe, Elvis, James Dean, and Katherine Hepburn. The rooms were neat, clean and comfortable. The Hotel is close enough to the highway for quick access to the town but far enough off that traffic noise is not a problem. Its biggest asset is its people. Everyone... More
