Bottom line: Even though this is a collage town hotel, with low expectations, you should take a pass.
Our first impression on entering the room: Baby wipes and an empty water bottle left behind bed stand by a previous room occupant (see photo), very dim lighting in both rooms and bathroom, stain on chair by door, thermostat mounted in outer room which causes a very cold bed room in summer and a warmer outer room. During stay we killed a bug on the bedspread. Our room was not cleaned (we pulled the not disturb sign off the door at 1:30 pm with maid working nearby.) The bed was comfortable. Breakfast buffet cost a pricy for Stillwater $10.86 pp with tasty bacon but no bananas. On check out we observed buckets in the lobby catching leaking water from ceiling.
There is a certain odor throughout in this hotel which I would label as Holiday Inn #5 perfume. Not very pleasant but bearable. We also smelled odors in the hall from the many oil field workers who seem to frequent this place. Maybe management needs to buy and spray more Holiday Inn #5.
