“Little Pricey but Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Great bed - we had an Executive King room. Wife loved the extra jets in the shower. Breakfast was good with reasonable variety. Our check in experience was great even though they were busy, they had adequate staff. Love the fact that you are within walking distance of several restaurants. Carpets, etc starting to show a little wear but everything was clean and serviceable. The room was a little on the pricey side but not out of the expected range.

Rates were a little high but well worth it! Breakfast was great and loved the pool area. Front desk staff was also very helpful. The shopping center was close by and so are the resturaunts. Loved the stay and the ONLY thing I didnt like too much was the parking "not that it wasnt a safe area".

We stayed two nights while attending a family reunion. First impression is the hotel is very clean. No stains on carpets in common areas or rooms. Nice furniture in common areas. Check in was a little slow, because the clerk was alone and had to handle phone calls. Room (king suite) was comfortable, with mini fridge, coffee maker and microwave. Coffee was supplied along with assorted items (bowls, spoons, knifes and paper towels. AC worked great. Towels and wash cloths were soft and fluffy. Room was on west side of building, so traffic from US69 was not a problem.

Wifi is free and is very fast. The signal could be picked up outside at the pool!

All the staff were friendly and helpful!

Breakfast (biscuits, gravy, eggs, assorted juices and cereals) was good. A nice touch was the platter of cookies at the reception desk. The pool was clean and pool furniture was in good shape.

The hotel is located within walking distance to several restaurants. There is a shopping area across the highway.

All in all, it is a nice place to spend a night or two. I highly recommend it!

My husband and I met some family members here just for a one-night stay. Upon check-in, we learned they were serving pizza and beer that evening. Free supper! We needed a handicapped room, and it was very accommodating, room to move the wheelchair, bars, etc. The room was huge! I had called the week before and made reservations, and good thing, too, because they were full! I thought it was a new motel, but talked to management and learned it was built a few years ago. It looked and smelled brand new. Breakfast in the morning was very good. We love the cinnamon rolls they always serve! We also swam before checking out, and the pool was equally as nice. I would definitely stay here again. Everything was great, from the staff to accommodations and everything else in-between!

Room Tip: Be sure to call and make reservations ahead of time.

I was here recently for work. This is one of the nicer Holiday Inn Expresses that I’ve been to. I usually stay at a different hotel chain but there were no rooms available the week I was visitng McAlester.

The staff was very friendly and they had cookies out each evening. The rooms were pretty clean and newer. The common areas are kept clean and well maintained. The breakfast was HIE standard. Its location is decent; there are some restaurants within walking distance.
I would say it would not be my first choice if I’m back in McAlester, but not because the hotel was bad, but because Priority Club is a dismal rewards club.

Our relatives often stay at this hotel for family reunions. We arrived late Friday evening, and made the mistake of settling in for the night before using the facilities. I could see from the doorway that the flimsy temporary plastic toilet handle was broken; housekeeping should have reported it when they cleaned. I called and was told that they could move us to another room or have maintenance repair it in the morning. We also noticed there were no facial tissues and the AC wouldn't come on. These latter were remedied by the time we returned from the reunion. Late Saturday afternoon, maintenance had not been reached by phone, though he was on call, so I asked for a credit on our bill, but all they would do is offer to move us. Not wanting the burden placed on us, I asked to speak to the manager. She also refused to help other than moving us to another room with a working toilet handle. The lobby toilet had a sturdy porcelain handle. Several problems here, from housekeeping to maintenance to management. The pillows were tiny, the blanket covered half the bed. Our aunt's coffee maker was not cleaned out. My husband was ill the second night, after eating a cookie from the lobby. It wasn't dinner, because we split that, being stuffed from the reunion earlier in the day. We intend to write to the company and let all our family know to avoid this hotel. There are several other choices in the area, so we hope there is some competition. I would have expected a rural town to have excellent customer service!

Room Tip: Flush before unpacking! Do not expect any maintenance on the weekend. Be satisfied with the room b...

We had been driving for hours and hours. This hotel was such a pleasant experience. The desk clerk was very kind and had everything I needed for an unexpected over-night stay. The bed was very comfortable. It was quiet. The breakfast was quick and very good.
