What we liked: Only 10 miles from WinStar Casino Easy to find What we disliked: Air-conditioning - our room had a ceiling fan and it was necessary with the struggling room unit. Set thermostat to 66 degrees and room never cooled any lower than 75 degrees Breakfast - food looked old.....maybe set out morning after morning one or two times... More

Chose this hotel for its location half way between the Casino and the airport. As a Holiday Inn it didn't meet the standard that I have experienced at other Holiday Inns. The breakfast was fine. The room needs some good cleaning and updates. I didn't fine the beds very comfortable and the pillows were terrible. Would not stay again.

Our family stayed here while moving our son to Gainesville. The room was very nice, clean, modern and the bed was very comfortable. The front staff was great working with us to extend our stay unexpectedly. The check in was swift and easy. The location is great near major highway and easy to locate. Breakfast buffet selections were pretty minimal... More

We stayed here after visiting the big Casino over the border in OK. The queen beds were new big high beauty rest mattresses with new fluffy mattress pads. Had my best nights sleep on the road trip. There is also a really good Mexican restaurant next door with low prices, try it you'll like it (el Tapatio)!

Room was very clean, comfortable and accessible. It's close in proximity to Winstar Casino. (8-10 miles) and within walking distance from several eating establishments. IHOP is just next door, Chili's across the interstate. Local Mexican restaurant within a few hundred yards.

This is our second time at this location. Both times we were upgraded to the executive suite (room 217). It's huge!! Two queen beds with a door separating the bedroom from the living room. Good breakfast, great service and a comfortable nights sleep. Great place to stay.

I see several people gave poor reviews of the hotel, yet we had a very good experience: helpful staff, clean comfortable room and good breakfast selection. This is comparable to other similar hotels we have stayed at, perhaps even a little better.

This was a great 2 night visit! They have a TRULY heated pool here!!! I have a 3 & 4 yr old grandchild and they love to swim.
