My husband used to visit his Grandmother in Poteau, OK, when he was a youth, decades ago. He remembered the town as extremely tiny and poor (he is from Chicago). Having never been there, I did not know what to expect. However, we were pleasantly surprised, when we arrived at the Days Inn & Suites in Poteau. It is a relatively large, modern, well kept property that Poteau should be proud to have in the area. Coming up to the front desk, I was struck by the two crystal chandeliers above and the craved wood work on the front of the desk - touches that added unexpected elegance. The attendant was prompt, pleasant and helpful. The room was clean, fresh smelling, comfortable, and well appointed for the price, with a very comfortable bed, nice furniture and pictures, granite counters in the bath, cable TV, a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, and free wired Internet connection. It reminded me of a well-kept Marriott. All in all, a very comfortable stay for our three nights over Easter vacation. Check out the wildflowers in the area in April - fantastic. Also, go to Heavener and see the Runestone State Park. Northeast OK has some really beautiful landscapes.
