I have to say I was hesitant to stay at any hotel in a small town, you just never know. But this hotel is very nice, still had the "just built" smell which is always good. The staff was nice, great manager. If I had to say anything negative it would be that there were railroad tracks running right alongside the hotel, but if there were trains running they didn't wake me up. And maybe the pillows could be a little softer.
We ate at La Huerta, another thing that's iffy in small towns, but it was good food. We've been told it's the best place to eat in town.

You would think that this hotel, for its amenities and updated looks, that you could would walk out of your hotel into a city full of nightlife and adventure. But it's Poteau, OK! LOL!

Anyway, we're reviewing the stay, not the town! We we're there visiting family and My wife, 2 small kids and I decided to get a room there. The place was clean, quiet and the staff was more than willing to help us with what we needed. The suite had great detail and all updated features and amenities. Great for short or long term stay.

Room Tip: The hotel although great and clean, is about 50 yards from a train track that is used quite a bit.

This was a very clean hotel. Staff was friendly. Indoor pool was crowded with a lot of kids in the evenings. Never did make it down to breakfast but the area was nice and comfy looking. But the walls are so thin - you can hear noises, TV's and people talking, half the night. Not sure if we just had a bad location or if this is the norm for the whole hotel. We stayed on a Friday and Saturday night.

Single night stay with two kids under 5 and two small dogs. Pet room was on the bottom floor, close to an exterior door, and near meeting rooms - away from other people - which is great for dogs. Hotel is very new so everything was pretty much clean and tidy. Breakfast was great, well stocked and tasty, great for traveling with kids. Friendly, helpful staff around the clock.

Everything looks brand new. The hot tub was actually hot. This hotel is a good bet for a good nights rest.

There were a number families that traveled to Poteau to help on a KH remodeling project. We all felt that our rooms had never been used before. VERY CLEAN. Staff was friendly, breakfast was good. Fresh cookies were at the front desk. Pool and whirlpool very nice. Our coffee pots did seem to taste like 1st time used. The only complaint is the train that passes by at night. We brough earplugs because one of our travelers was a heavy snorer. Good thing we did. The train is pretty loud. Ask for a room on the other side of hotel, maybe that will help.

I frequently travel and stay in many motel/hotels. This one is not at the top of my favorite list, but not at the bottom either. When I checked in, the outside temperature was in the 30's and the heat was off in the room, the room temperature was 53 degrees....it took almost FOUR hours to bring the room up to a comfortable temperature. The bed was not comfortable, the breakfast bar did not have any fruit, no half & half for my coffee, etc. The motel was clean and in a good location.
