“Valentine's Day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

I LOVE this hotel. We used to live in McAlester and have always wanted to stay there ever since it was built. We would often eat at Angels Diner. We are children of the 50s and love to step back in time. Now that we live in TX, we come visit our son in McAlester. We were also celebrating Valentine's Day/39th Anniversary. Everyone is so nice and helpful. We WILL stay there again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Queen Deluxe room, and it was very comfortable, spacious and clean. That was the mo...

We stayed in the Happy Day Hotel because the location was near our meeting site. We've stayed there before. We were very pleased with the rooms. They are themed for Movie Stars from the 50's and early 60's. Ours was Marilyn Monroe themed. The rooms are small but clean and the furniture is in good condition. The staff was very friendly and efficient. They serve a limited breakfast that we didn't eat but right next door is a diner furnished in the same theme and we found it to be very good and not expensive at all. There are several places to stay in McAlester Oklahoma but I recommend the Happy Days for a unique experience.

Room Tip: If yo have a favorite 50 movie star ask if they have that room it may make the stay a little more fu...

This is by far one of the best hotels I have stayed in so far. The ambiance is great! There is a free breakfast and behind the hotel is a recreation center/bar. The rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly.

I am very glad you enjoyed your stay here at Happy Days Hotel in McAlester, OK. We are always glad to hear that our guests take the time to eat at Angel's Diner & visit Great Balls of Fire, as well. It makes for a well rounded trip to be able to "Eat, Stay & Play" without having to drive to get to do something.

While travelling from Killeen, Tx to Illinois we found this hotel. The location was perfect as it sits right on the highway. It seemed a bit weird, but its great if you enjoy themed hotels. I really just wanted a nice, clean place to stay after driving for awhile.

It was that and more. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were extremely clean, and the breakfast was great. The price at the time was about 60 dollars, so it was a great value. Parking was also free which is a plus. If I am ever in the area again, I would stay here.

We happened upon this place travelling through. Great value and clean rooms. Personal touch. American family owned and operated. They also have a diner and a bowling alley right there owned by same family. They allow pets too with no hassle.

We drove our classic car to the Fall Classic last October and stayed in the Lucy Room. We loved it!!! We enjoyed our stay so much that we reserved a block of rooms for our Early Ford V8 Chapter for this year's Fall Classic. The rooms are immaculate and the staff, though small, could teach some large chain hotels how a hotel should be run. Not only are they friendly but they go out of their way to be helpful. I wanted to make sure our club members could all stay together and enjoy the experience. Thanks, Happy Days...you sure made us "Happy". See you on the 17th....

Room Tip: Any they are all special!!!

The 50's theme was fun. The Hotel was very clean. The Room was comfortable and had everything we needed. The breakfest was adequate but basic. Best value for the price. We enjoyed our stay and plan on staying there next trip.
