“Worst ever - happy to get OUT alive”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Abandon All Hope, Ye Who Enter Here

Arrived at 9:00pm after a 920 mile drive; navigator found the hotel on iPhone (cheap -- $78; $68 with AARP), and there was only one Yelp review, which was positive. Arriving at night is the only reason we pulled into the lot (when we LEFT in the daylight, it was speedily); and even then we should have been concerned -- lot was NOT well-lit. (Turns out it recently was converted to a TravelLodge from being a Hawthorne Suites -- the 4 yelp reviews for its Hawthorn Suite incarnation were spot-on: uniformly terrible. Guess if you can fix the problems, you can change the name.)

Cheap it was. Our room still had broken glass in the sliding glass door from the last break in, and suspicious browning stains on a lamp and on the ceiling -- blood?

There was no toilet paper -- not even a dispenser (kleenix-like objects, tho). Both faucets dripped all night (and one of them you couldn't even turn ON -- apparently it only drips). The beds -- honest-to-god they'd made up both beds with the sheets ABOVE the blankets! We went to bed happy to have a dog with us as a sentry (and I placed obstacles by the recently broken glass doors to give us additional escape-time, if it came to that).

Breakfast? My daughter took one look at the ENTIRELY tattooed guy unpacking to go to his room a couple doors down (arriving at 8am? with compatriots that looked like refugees from TV's Justified), and said "we're OUTTA here!"

This was the worst hotel I've ever HEARD of, much less seen. We really have NO excuse for having spent the night, and are lucky I'm able to post this review.

I really apologize that you feel that you would not be leaving alive from our motel. But believe me or not every one from our motel leave alive. And again i apologize for your experience during your stay and i like to accept our mistake as we gave you room which was under maintenance ( was system error). As now its too late to change any of your experience but i like to make note one thing that guy with tattoo was our VALUABLE guest who work night and come back to room in morning so there is nothing wrong with it. Those customer know when they call around for pricing and what they getting for their price.

My family stayed at this hotel due to having family member in OU. It is not the best hotel I have ever stayed at, but far from the worst as well. It was a clean and comfortable room, though you had to ask for pretty much everything from housekeeping. They did minimal work to keep the room up. The laundry room was not good at all, so we ended up going to a laundromat. But the staff was very friendly and helpful. We spent a week there and didn't have any major issues. Interesting old rooms, like small apartments almost. Comfortable place to end a day after spending all our time at the hospital.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs are probably much quieter than having someone above you stomping around late at night...

Not in the best part of town. Hotel was dark and we asked to see the room before we checked in. Hotel manager took us to the room and we asked for a refund. We did not feel safe here and it is a very run down place. No telling what kind of bed bugs I would bring home. Got back on the highway and headed towards Joplin Mo.

I was excited to find a reasonable hotel in the area I like to be. Check in was conducted by someone that appears to be high. While she was very pleasant, she could not focus long enough to conduct a smooth and quick transaction. When I entered the room, all looked as in the photo on the web. Unfortunately, the room with the bed is only a portion of the 2 room suite. The balance of the suite was in somewhat rough condition. In addition, the suite uses a 2 unit mini split heat pump. Neither was in working order. I called for service. The maintenance guy was not successful in getting the units to work. He provided me with 2 small portable heaters. The next day I found the maintenance guy and the property owner. I communicated the heat was still not working. They came over and attempted to resolve the issue with no luck. The owner stated the AC repairman was on site and he would send him to the room. The AC tech never did show up. As a result I had 2 days and nights with no heat with night time temps in the low 20’s. Overall I was disappointed in this property and the way in which they handle guest concerns.

Room Tip: Look for another hotel.
