“Good and Bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2006

We enjoyed our stay, but thought the property had good and bad points. The staff was very nice and helpful. The house is very historic and the parlor and front rooms are lovely. The rooms themselves are okay. I would say the website's photos are accurate. The linens could be nicer. But the only truly bad thing about it was the neighbors, which I realize the owners do not control. They have dogs outdoors in a small fenced kennel almost all the time. We did not notice late barking, but I find it depressing to see animals being treated like this. The adjoining property is also not in stellar condition.However, we wanted to be near to bricktown and didn't want to pay exorbitant prices so this fit the bill nicely. Although the immediate neighborhood is clearly being revitalized, it is awfully close to the jail (you will notice it because it is several stories high with no windows) and many bail bondsmen. We drove everywhere we went though and had no issues. I wouldn't want anywhere too far at night. We would consider staying here again because overall it was pleasant. It was nice to have access to bottled water and snacks in the butler's pantry.

I am sorry that this response is 5 years in coming, but I wanted to take a moment to address your review. Those are actually our dogs. We realize they might have been loud when they were younger puppies as often they bark at everything. Now they serve as family pets and guard dogs. No, not the walk the property trained to attack kind, but they bark at things they know do not belong.

You had mentioned concerns about the neighborhood. Your concerns are justified, as the county jail is within a mile of our inn and looks ugly. However, the police presence in our neighborhood is for lack of a better word perfect. We have one of safest well lit areas in midtown. On top of that, Gunther and Boots the canine alarm system. You would be amazed how quickly foot traffic stopped once we had the dogs.

It's hard to bring the dogs inside, even being a pet friendly inn there are limits to keep in mind for those that are not pet enthusiasts. That said, they are well cared for and have the run of the basement in the wintertime, and plenty of shade and water, and their pool for the hot summer days.

Elegant stay, Questionable area---

I had a wonderful stay here. Most comfortable stay ever and have stayed downtown in very nice hotels. My room was beautiful and immaculate. I had cozy sheets and blankets, great pillows (and lots of them) and the owners were friendly and more than accomodating. There is a small kitchen open to guests upstairs. I loved having the common areas to feel at home, instead of being isolated in a one room hotel. The area of town was of concern to my mother and she instructed to avoid strolls outside. I did sit out on the front porch with no problem. You may wish to check with a person familiar with the area (Visitor's Center...) to see what they think. You know Moms!

Thank you for the kind words. Happily I can now report that any lingering element of neighborhood concern has been eliminated. At the time of this review there were some questionable apartment communities nearby. All have since been bought and are in the process of being remodeled into high end condos. Midtown, as our area of OKC is called, is being touted as the next city hotspot as old buildings are being revived and restuarants move back into the area.
