“Joyful stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2012

We stayed here on the 24th of June. Stopping in late at night, you would have thought it was 9:00 A.M. in the morning. What a pleasant greeting by the attending lady. The room was so clean and the Hotel was so pretty and uplifting with all the Happy Days theme along with many of the 50's and older movies themes.
Breakfast was amazing and clean. You were welcome by an attendant that was also helpful with my great-grandchildren.
We all had a great experience and would recommend to others to stop in and have a very restful sleep. Beds were excellent as well. Thank you again for a clean and welcoming place to stay.

Room Tip: As you come from the South on the main highway, stop at the first place on the right. You will not b...

Loved this place, Clean, welcoming and very nicely themed. Would recommend to anyone to stay there. Loved it

Room Tip: Only disadvantage would be there are stairs, so make sure you ask for aroom on the ground floor

This hotel is really more like a motel but it is such a good value for the money. The place is very very clean and the nicest people work there. When you walk in you feel like you are going back in time to the days of rock and roll, Elvis, James Dean etc. Even though the place is just about 5 or 6 years ols. Our two queen bedroom was a little tight on extra space but there was good storage. The beds had pillow tops and felt like sleeping in our own beds. There was a small refrigerator and microwave stacked by a counter. The bathroom counter was short but had some space for toiletries. The shower curtain had pictures of jukeboxes and dancers . Great towels that were thick and the shower was good too. We
received a discount on our dinner at Angel's Diner which sits out front of the hotel and is owned by the same people. It is decorated too and has the grill and counter seating as well as booths and tables. One more thing. The rooms were surprisingly quiet even though construction was going on for a new entertainment center that is supposed to open in a few
months. Especially when looking for an overnight stay, this is a must choose place.

Room Tip: There is not an elevator so that may need consideration when reserving a room. There is a small swim...

We stayed 1 night, loved it. Similar to a Microtel, but has unique decor. Friendly staff. Good breakfast with waffles. Rooms clean with adequate space. James Dean was the theme in our room. Halls and stairways and lounge are all decorated in 50's memorabilia.Nice pool.
Fridge and microwave in room.Shower curtain had 100;s of pictures of 50's movie stars on it. Arrived too late Sunday (after 3 pm) to eat at the Angel Cafe. Would love to have tried the Whistle-Stop Fried Green Tomatoes. It was our first time in McAlester, but we had fun.Would love to come back with the grand-kids.

This is a fun place to stay. Usually you can find the owner in a cowboy hat at breakfast, very clean rooms, and professional friendly staffs. Make sure you ask the staff what kind of day they are having; they usually say anything but a happy day! Only kidding . . . Also Angles restaurant [1950s] Great Milk Shakes! . . . Thanks Pep!

We stayed at Happy Days Hotel with a large group of car crazy people.
The rooms are clean, the decorating is unique! It was a lot of fun. The rooms
were clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed our two nights there and have
reservations for next year.

The pink neon and cute restaurant first caught our attention. The 50s & 60s decor with the real records hang on the walls and memorabilia of Elvis, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, and others was charming. We had great warm welcome from the staff even with a late arrival. We had an equally warm chat with
the owner the next morning. Our room was a little smallish, but attractively decorated and comfortable. Rates were the best we found for this caliber of hotel in the area. We would go back without hesitation.
