“Pretty Is As Pretty Does”
Reviewed June 28, 2009

After a long, hot drive yesterday, I was willing to pay well over $100 for a room at 10:30 at night, given my assumptions about HI-X and the guarantee of the nearby convenience store clerk that this was the best hotel in town. Much like my other experiences at other HI-Express hotels: beautiful hotel and rooms, satisfactory breakfast, and friendly front desk...BUT... took a half hour and three different rooms before I got into one that actually was clean and ready (and, even then, the bathroom floor was dirty). Obviously, there was a breakdown in communication between housekeeping and front desk. My advice: book online in advance and ALWAYS take a quick tour of any hotel room before you unpack...even if that means pulling down the sheets to check for previous occupants.

Nice hotel - but expensive. We stayed in the comfort suites last year, and this was newer and nicer. Room had 2 queen beds, sofa bed, a little refrigerator, and a microwave. I don't know why the hotels are so expensive in this town.

For some reason it's getting somewhat harder (little by little) to find motels that actually accept cash these days. If you pay cash here you will be required to leave a deposit with the front desk.
I got the very last room they had available and it was a 'handicap' room. I was a little leary as I opened the door. The room turned out to be a nice, big, very well appointed surprise. It was great!
The room had a small 'kitchen' area, a couch, table and chairs, great TV and a huge very comfortable bed. It had a fridge and microwave and all the other 'extras' that one would hope to find at this chain of properties.
The breakfast was great as well. I'm just about at the point where I may rethink my loyalty to the Hilton chain of motels as I have been staying in some very nice Hol-Inn-Exp's lately.
I would have no problem recommending this property to any type of traveller of all.

  • Liked — My room was a very pleasant surprise
  • Disliked — That I was only staying one night

When checked, they required a deposit, along with the charges. When got into room, we felt it was clean and then we saw had a huge spot in the middle of the beds. When watching TV the channels would change on it own, When told the front desk, they just said yeah we've being getting calls about it, Nothing was done about it. The first day breakfast was great and hot, the second day different person in charge of food, eggs were weird,hot food was tepid, yorgurt was hot, bacon was not crisp We fiannly figured out what last was on the remote, this was not clearly mark. Would take a chance on another hotel if I am ever there again.

Wonderfully clean, nicely decorated, and the staff were friendly and helpful. I wish all HI Express hotels could be this nice. We stayed in one in Hot Springs, AR, the next night and it was awful..dirty and beat up. This one in McAlester gets an A+++++ from me!

The rooms are spacious, well-appointed, tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. The beds are comfortable and include the all "fresh" bedding - lots of freshly laundered cotton sheets and pillowcases with no traditional blankets or bedspreads. The lobby and other ammenities are modest, but attractive and pleasant. The staff is wonderfully friendly. This hotel invests in the things that really matter to most travelers.

Excellent place to stay. Customer service oriented staff who were very friendly when asked questions regarding area, restaurants etc. Terrific breakfast bar with great variety. Room was very comfortable, clean, quiet. I would highly recommend this motel to others if staying in the area.
