“Good luck.”
Reviewed July 19, 2011

How this place got 4/5 stars is beyond me. We booked two nights here. We sort of went with another couple. When I say sort of, the husbands stayed the first night (while us moms stayed back with the kids), then we switched out and us girl's stayed the second night (while the boys stayed home with the kids). I'm explaining this for a reason.

The second night, the girls arrived. We went to the front desk to request a shuttle to the casino. The lobby was full and included some shady looking people. The front desk clerk announced that she remembered our husbands the night prior and commented how they were at home with the kids and we were alone. She also announced our room number, audible enough for the entire lobby to hear. Gee, thanks.

The parking lot was very loud, ALL NIGHT, and there were people sitting on the stairway. We had to ask them to move so we could get to our 2nd floor room. Kids up playing all hours, people running up and down the breezeway, morons gunning their engines, and the LOUD train. We caught maybe 4 hours of sleep. We considered driving the hour back home, but didn't want to risk it because we were so tired.

The room was very stinky and there was a brown stain (of questionable nature) on the bedskirt. The hot/cold shower knobs were on backwards and it took some time to figure out, not to mention the shower pipe had come uncaulked from the tile and was hanging out. There was a gap in the (closed) front door and daylight was actually streaking in the next morning.

I emailed management about the clerk announcing our info and didn't get anywhere. Never again.

We travel with a dog, so always looking for a place that will allow pets. room was clean, bed was comfortable, and the room was quiet. Nice area to walk our dog. Places to eat not far away. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed one night at the Days Inn Durant. When you first drive up, it does look a bit outdated, but the inside it totally remodeled. The front desk service was always quick and very helpful. I was very surprised by how clean and nice the room was. One small issue we had with the bathtub was taken care of immediately. I doubt you will find a better deal when staying in Durant. Save your money for the casino and stay here - it was the best price in town!

The property was apparently newly remodeled. There were granite counter tops on the vanity and lining the shower. There was new carpet, drapes, and furniture. It was much different than my stay last year. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Crystal was very sweet and went above and beyond what was necessary to make sure me and my elderly mother were comfortable. A man that I assume to be the maintenance man was loud and obnoxious. He spoke profanities loudly and it was very offensive. Other than that, it was a delightful trip.

The room was average and acceptable to stay in. During the night the sound of doors slamming constantly and a train made it difficult to sleep. The non smoking room reeked of cigarette smoke. I will pay more and stay at a better hotel next year at the CHOCTAW TRIBAL GOAT SHOW.
