This was my second stay at the Choctaw Lodge on February 22-23, 2014. I enjoyed our first stay back in December 2013. The breakfast is nice too. When we checked out, I notices I forgot my Nike Air Shox shoes and I call the hotel 2 hours after we checked out. They said that the room was still being cleaned...

Wow. Great location. Right next to the casino. If you want to spend a restful night this is not the place to stay. Trains running by most of the night across the street and the whistles were very loud. My wife was not happy that I picked this hotel to stay at. Drove home early in the day just to...

Otherwise find another place. Noisy, dirty. No safe. No fridge. Small. They have a shuttle to Casino but if you walk it is a good hike since the closest entry is fenced off and across a field that was muddy with no sidewalks. No slots in this building. And no lifts and no one even offered to help with luggage....

I was in town with my family for a powwow at the Choctaw Event Center and this lodge was pretty close. I was a little unsure where the motel entrance was from the road. In years past, I had driven through the casino/grand hotel parking lot to get to the lodge. Due to construction, I had to guess my way...

We stayed at the Choctaw lodge this past weekend and wanted to compliment the staff on making us comfortable. Krystalyne, who works the front desk was very helpful answering any questions that we had. We also were thrilled to be able to bring our little dogs. The breakfast was very filling and coffee was great. The 24 hour hot chocolate...

Simply put, this is the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. Trains come by about 8-10 each night blowing the LOUD whistle each time. Was here 3 nights for WSOPC. They also never cleaned/serviced my room once. Count on no sleep, poor service, room w/ no fridge, no safe, and a total dump.

For the same price as the Inn, stay at the Inn or pay extra & stay in the Tower. The LODGE has SMALL rooms that have a stale cigarette odor. Furnishings seem new but there is no fridge and no microwave in room. You can hear your neighbors talk & the train is loud too. You can hear your upstairs...

Stayed here recently to attend a concert at Choctaw and enjoy the casino. First off the signage to find the place in the dark was highly lacking. We found the Inn at Choctaw and had to be redirected. The staff we dealt with were all very nice. The room, though small, was very nice and had all we needed. Would...

Dear Guest, we are sorry this happened and I know that we have spoken and fixed this for you already but I wanted to say sorry in a public way. We should not have done this and it was an honest error. Thank you for telling us how we got this wrong and allowing us to fix this situation.

“If you are there for a concert. Opt for a cheaper hotel across the street. They jack up nightly prices on those weekends.”
