Recent guest reviews

There were several issues with staff and management which included staff texting during food prep as well as enforcing "Covid Restrictions" for guests but not staff. When brought to management's attention it was blown off and said it would be investigated but nothing changed.

The room was small and so was the bathroom. However, itr was clean and close to OU for the game.

Property was fine, but rooms need an upgrade. Lighting was not good and bathroom was a bit small. Was also disapointed there was no frig.

This hotel is geared towards adults and large groups. The breakfast and dining area is nice with lots of great food choices. The rooms are mostly renovated, although this last stay they put us in a room with a very small bathroom vanity. There was hardly any room for anything and the tile in the bathroom tub was from the 50’s. (Pink) The shower and tub themselves however were great. The bed in this room was also making popping noises, although the bed itself was very comfortable. (I believe that this room needs a maintenance check or renovation review.) With that said, I still give the hotel a 9/10. It’s very clean and sanitized for Covid-19 reasons and was like that before also. Highly recommend!

Love the breakfast! There is so much to do here!! We stay here when we visit our daughter at OU. We can play pool and basketball and ping pong and so many activities. We just get to hang out and enjoy each other!!

Awesome hotel! Staff very friendly! Hotel was very clean! The breakfast buffet was amazing. They also had a popcorn machine and set out a little candy station. I’ve been coming to Norman for 2 1/2 yrs and this was first time I saw and stayed at this hotel. It will now be the only hotel I stay at! 8min from my daughter. Already booked mom’s weekend for this hotel.

The amenities were fantastic for the price! The breakfast and pool were our favorites. Room was a little small but had everything we needed.

This property has everything. It really is not well advertised but it has so much to offer. The rooms are not the largest but what you get on the property is well worth it. Huge buffet, plenty of activities from billiards room to heated pool, hot tub, sauna, huge gym, basketball court, spa, bike rental, ropes course, duck pond, shuttle service, the list goes on. Just incredible!

The rooms are clean and the restaurant is excellent.

Very friendly checkin and restaurant staff. Clean rooms. Great breakfast

Overall good. But beds were way too soft - uncomfortably so.

Very small room, old bathroom. Not well insulated- heard every door close. Would not visit again

Buffet was great the best I have had. Only downside was the small rooms. They do not offer King, or a room with 2 Queens. This is mainly because the size of the room. I have seen larger bathrooms in trailers.

Stayed for OU / Dad's Day weekend. Facilities are nice (gym, bar, size, etc.). Rooms - not so much. VERY small and outdated. Thin walls. Small pillows. I came home exhausted. Just not comfortable. Location good for game day. Pretty good breakfast buffet was included in price. If I were to go back, I would definitely take my own pillows!

This is a great hotel with shuttle service ($15) to Campus. Highly recommend this hotel for any overnight stay in Norman!
