Very nice hotel with attentive staff. The rooms can be a bit confusing to find (3 interconnected buildings) however they explain directions very well and give you a map. I would call the room size spacious for a hotel, the bed is super comfortable, and the room was very quiet. Only thing missing was a hair drier.

What a disappointment. While the out side of the hotel looked well maintained our room was simply not good. Lots of Maintenance is was need! Doors broken, shower door broken. Very damp and smelly. On arriving home the back of the car and luggage still smelt damp. Ceilings and trim had lots of black moldy patches. We were booked in for 3 nights but cut our loses and left after two. Our room felt like it need a deep clean in stead of a lick and a promise. Very few towels and pillows. No hair dryer. I did call house keeping for a few extra and I have to say that young lady who helped me was very nice and helpful. I saw her much later in the day and she seemed to still be smiling and had no help. I know at this time it has for the industry to get staff. Our experience was not what we read on the pack. Stayed in other chain hotels in the area and in future I will stick to what I know!

This is where we stay whenever we come over to visit friends and campus at OU. We just stayed for a reunion of our freshman dorm, Perkins, after 47 years! Our waiter at the Cutler Restaurant, MADI, was fantastic with our group of 16. She was attentive, on point, and excellent all 3 hours! It made for the highlight of our weekend! Thank you!

We loved our server, madi. She was super attentive. We celebrated our 26th anniversary. We got married here. As parents of a college aged student it was nice to see a hard working young adult. We will come back again. The patio was beautiful and pleasant.
