Best Western Markita Inn
Ranked #4 of 9 Hotels in Durant
Reviewed June 6, 2012

This is an older hotel, but fresh paint, clean carpet, GREAT service. We requested a smoking room, on the ground floor, and we have a big truck. They gave us a room right by the truck parking, and there were a few thoughtful things I want to mention. There was a 4 plug outlet on the laptop desk, which was nice. I usually have to hunt for outlets to plug in phones, laptop, etc. There was a freshly laundered bagged blanket in the drawer, a laundry bag for soiled laundry, just little things like that that really helped. The rate was reasonable, and they DO have designated truck parking. I would recommend this hotel, and if we get that way again, will stay there. Many restaurants within walking distance also.

We are roadtripping through and just happened to stop in Durant. It was a great rest stop! Lots of restaurants around, and Best Western was the best deal we found in town for a place to stay. Further down one way were slightly cheaper and lesser quality hotels, and down the other way are more expensive hotels (we didn't ask about the quality difference, but felt that we didn't need to shell out more bucks when we found Best Western more than adequate). This was a great middle option for us. The WiFi was good and strong, nice showers, big flat screen TV. They gave us a good room on the first floor which was nice for us with our bags. There is a small exercise room with some nice looking machines, but we didn't try them out.

The staff were super friendly and helpful, answering all our questions and directing us to the best restaurants in town. (Roma Italian, by the way, is the best! We ate there last night and the food is incredible, with live saxophone music too. We kept asking ourselves, How did this restaurant get HERE?)

We haven't had breakfast yet but our voucher for the Waffle Shoppe next door says, "2 eggs, bacon or sausage, hash browns toast or biscuit, coffee or sm juice OR $3 value towards any other breakfast." That's a pretty good breakfast to me!

We would like to thank you for your compliments. We strive to educate our staff through training to be the best they can be. We are glad to see you had a positive experience with us. Jim, the owner or Romas, is my friend but he does have the best Italian food for the price in this part of the country. If you are ever in our area again, we would love to have you back.
Thank you,
Jim Thorpe, owner

Stayed only one night in spa suite. Only reason we didn't stay longer is that they don't accept pets and the dogs had to stay in the truck overnight and it was still very warm. The room was very clean, staff very friendly. Great hotel if you don't have pets.

Older motel that is meticulously maintained. Free breakfast, very convenient, with many food choices. The air conditioners are amazing. My room was at 70 degrees when it was 109 degrees outside. Just a great place to stay.

Stayed here as a one night stop when traveling through to another destination. Hotel is older but well kept. Room was clean but a little musty smelling. Once we ran the a/c it got better.

The noise from the highway nearby was a problem the night we were there. I'm not sure about every night but this night there were a lot of loud motored vehicles going by until well after midnight.

We would probably stay there again as there are very few hotels in Durant that are not on the same stretch or road so I'm afraid the noise would be the same at any of them.
