Nice hotel. Chose the lodge over the Inn because it had a continental breakfast which the Inn did not. Breakfast offered included biscuits and sausage gravy, scrambled eggs, bacon, bagels, muffins (the chocolate chocolate chip one was excellent!), cereals, hot chocolate/cappuccino, coffee, juices and milk. They have 24 hr shuttle service to take to and from casino, but did not...

No complaints! Enjoyed our stay. Great breakfast, not just donuts and coffee. Always excellent with bacon, sausage gravy, eggs, and biscuits! :-) Nice staff! Clean rooms! Great value! Definitely want to come back and stay. Thank you!

Thank you for your review, we are very glad that you had an excellent stay and that you liked the breakfast. We too are glad to see the winter come and that gives us an excuse to serve bacon and hot chocolate. We all look forward to welcoming you back soon.

I stay here for business and it is exactly what I need it to be. It's affordable, the staff is very friendly and helpful, and it.s very clean and safe. The beds are comfortable. They offer a complimentary breakfast spread in the morning. I mean, there is a lovely hotel 100 yards away if you are looking for that experience...

We stayed at the Choctaw Inn last week - what a disappointment. I ran into the manager in the hall when walking the dogs outside, who asked I be sure to write a review of the hotel and let everyone know they accepted pets. As promised I am doing so because it was a nice option for a trip to...

Cheap room ($72), newly renovated, former Microtel. Rooms are REALLY small and I wouldn't want to stay here with kids, but they are nicely appointed for an individual or couple. Hotel was clean, staff was friendly. Earned 4 stars and docks one for a major "no weapons" policy posted on every door. CCL holders be prepared to leave your protection...

Thank you for your review, I know that some guests dislike the CCL policy of the Choctaw Nation, I am sorry this would stop you coming back to stay with us.

My wife and I have stayed at the Choctaw Lodge several times and have always had an enjoyable stay. The rooms are as good as any resort for half the price. The beds and pillows are very comfortable. This time we stayed 3 nights and got the third night free which included a great hot breakfast every morning. The Oasis...

I travel around the tri-state area frequently on business. I have NEVER found a better room quality value or nicer staff. The Choctaw lodge prides itself on service and quality. Great beds with plenty of soft pillows, clean rooms, great complimentary breakfast. I admit I was skeptical at first since it is located across the parking lot from the rest...

I am a frequent traveler in hotels around casinos, and Choctaw Lodge was a perfect fit for my needs. I expected a lower quality facility because of the value pricing, but was pleasantly surprised to find high quality rooms and amenities, which are head and shoulders above those in the name-brand hotels, which are several miles away. The staff were...

Without a reservation, I had checked at the towers and they were able to get a room for me at the lodge. Noticing my limp, they called ahead and asked if there was a first floor room availability but due to a concert that night, there wasn't. Arriving after 10 pm, security is nice knowing that the Front Desk clerk...
