My wife and I stayed at this property while attending a couple of concerts at the nearby casino in Oklahoma. We got the room with my wife's Holiday Inn points and stayed two nights (Friday and Saturday). We really liked the overall vibe of the property and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

Although Heather was extremely friendly and professional, I will not be coming back to this property. The immediate area had quite a few events happening and this property pulled nasty price gouging. $199 for one night with one bed. We were there for work and had no choice but to pay it because everyone else was booked. We ended up... More

Set thermostat to 66 degrees and room never cooled any lower than 75 degrees Breakfast - food looked old.....maybe set out morning after morning one or two times... More

Chose this hotel for its location half way between the Casino and the airport. As a Holiday Inn it didn't meet the standard that I have experienced at other Holiday Inns. The breakfast was fine. The room needs some good cleaning and updates. I didn't fine the beds very comfortable and the pillows were terrible. Would not stay again.

Our family stayed here while moving our son to Gainesville. The room was very nice, clean, modern and the bed was very comfortable. The front staff was great working with us to extend our stay unexpectedly. The check in was swift and easy. The location is great near major highway and easy to locate. Breakfast buffet selections were pretty minimal... More

We stayed here after visiting the big Casino over the border in OK. The queen beds were new big high beauty rest mattresses with new fluffy mattress pads. Had my best nights sleep on the road trip. There is also a really good Mexican restaurant next door with low prices, try it you'll like it (el Tapatio)!

Room was very clean, comfortable and accessible. It's close in proximity to Winstar Casino. (8-10 miles) and within walking distance from several eating establishments. IHOP is just next door, Chili's across the interstate. Local Mexican restaurant within a few hundred yards.

This is our second time at this location. Both times we were upgraded to the executive suite (room 217). It's huge!! Two queen beds with a door separating the bedroom from the living room. Good breakfast, great service and a comfortable nights sleep. Great place to stay.
