    « Not Good »

    Room was dirty. Booked room 2 months in advance but request for a ground floor room was not approved. Eggs were inedible by family members who tried them. Pastries were stale on a Saturday morning. Jeremy, the dining room aid, talked at you in a loud voice, knows it all and was obnoxious. Not again!

    « Suprisingly Nice for the Price »

    Decided to stay here based on price plus previous experience in the past couple of years with Best Western Plus. Would never have gone to a Best Western in the 70s thru 90s as they were getting dated and old. They seem to have come out with the next generation of motels and we have been very pleased with the ones we have stayed out recently (especially in Canada). This one in MacAlester was very clean and had great a/c with a remote. Just a stopover from our trip from Missouri back to Texas. Did not want to spend a lot for just a place to sleep and leave. It exceeded my expectations and was very very good price. The King sized bed was very firm and comfortable and the TV was a large flat screen - something that I find essential. Nothing fancy but very nice, considering we are used to Marriott Courtyards and Hampton Inns. Best bang for the buck. Quiet, with no road noise. Nice casino a mile down the road as well. Breakfast was great - eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, fruit, cereal, pastry, etc.. We will stop there again on our next trip!.

    It was a descent hotel. Did not agree with their rating process but what can you do?. The breakfast guy was great and cared about his customer pleasing. The rooms were clean and it basically suited our needs.

    We were extremely pleased with the grounds, location, personnel, breakfast, rooms and we travel quite a bit. This was perfect for us and now we have a new favorite destination. You will love it and all of the fun things to do here. We are looking forward to coming back in 5 days. Thank you Owners for taking such pride in your Best Western Inn and Staff.

    « Looking for last minute rooms while traveling through »

    We did not know that McAlester was in middle of a fall festival and most rooms within 100 miles were already booked. Luckily we called Best Western Inn and talked to Lisa. She had a room upstairs. So we hoofed it to the Best Western. and in the meantime, Lisa found us a downstairs room. When we registered, splitting the room costs, etc., Lisa made everything easy. After driving many hours, being tired, cranky, etc., this was such a relief! We walked into our room and gave a big happy sigh. Room was spotless and welcoming! It was such a relief after spending 3 days at War Eagle Festival (which was great) but in less than acceptable accommodations! The next morning had a good, tasty breakfast. All breakfast items were hot, available, no waiting for refills. Best Western caused our fall festival tour to end on a rested and comfortable note! Thank you.

    Great Motel, clean and quiet. Love the breakfast and easy check-in and out. The staff is very polite and friendly. You can beat the value for your money. Can't wait to return next year! Thank you to all the staff and help that make our stay wonderful.

    « Nice Clean Older Property »

    This Best Western property is older, but very clean and everything was in working order. The bed was comfortable, and the HVAC worked properly. Also, the staff was very friendly and helpful. This was a stay of one night on our way to another destination. It was a perfect room for this type of stay.

    « A Great Experience »

    Everything about this hotel was great: from accessibility to accommodations. Lisa, the desk manager, was extremely professional, personable and polite. Thank you for a great experience! Did I mention this was a great experience?

    « A place to stop to visit the city. »

    Great place to stay while visiting the town. Lots of places to eat around the area and easy to get too. It was very easy to check in and she was very friendly. I asked for a first floor room and one close to the office when I made my reservations and that is what they gave me. The hotel is 2 floors. The first floor has exterior doors and the second floor has exterior corridor. The room was clean. Beds were very comfortable. Big flat TV. We stayed 2 nights. The hot breakfast is the normal items, scrambled eggs, sausage patties, biscuits and gravy, etc. The person running the breakfast made sure the food was full and hot. There is a place to park big trucks and campers. If I am in this town again I will stay here for sure.

    « Not good »

    Before booking, you should know that this hotel has exterior corridors. Although the rooms appear to be renovated, my room did not seem clean, including some stray hairs on the sheets. It's also on the outskirts of town, near a truck stop. I would not choose this hotel again.

    « City Quality with Hometown Hospitality »

    Group vacation on motorcycles. We stayed at several Best Westerns. This was the best of them all. The staff was kind and very helpful! Loved having warm cookies on arrival :) The rooms were very clean and comfortable! I thought I was at a Best Western Plus, to my surprise it was a regular Best Western. I highly recommend this Best Western. It is very apparent that they care about their visitors! Thank you for a Wonderful Stay!!

    We arrived at the hotel late so I did not have time to make a reservation. The room was right on time. The room was none smoking very comfortable. We were passing through. It was a very good stay and a 12 p.m. check-out which was good.

    « Best hotel to stay »

    This is my halfway point heading to and from Texas. I look forward to my stay. Staff is always so friendly. Rooms are clean . I can count on a much needed rest. Beds are very comfortable. Pets are welcome at no additional cost and Murphy can run around by the fenced in pool while my granddaughter takes a dip to wind down. Food is centrally located. There is a diner right across the parking lot. Breakfast is included in your stay. Thank you Lisa for always adding my BW rewards for me before I even arrive so I know I get my points. You and your staff are amazing. See you nest week.

    « Best Western in McAlester, OK »

    We were on our way home from visiting family in Illinois and needed a good night's sleep. I was reading reviews of the hotels and this Best Western had a good rating. We hadn't stayed in a Best Western in a long time, and were pleasantly surprised. This hotel had all new furniture and was very clean. We slept good and enjoyed breakfast the next morning. The front desk was very friendly too. We will stay there again.

    « Good place to sleep. »

    Our room was small and clean -had everything you wanted, almost. If you have to dry your hair bring your own hair dryer, theirs was a dud. We were disappointed the pool is closed, nobody mentioned that - actually packed swimsuits. Breakfast is filling and coffee is hot. Maid does a great job.Our TV was possessed, it came on every morning at 6am and it was only static. We restarted it 3-4 times and couldn't get it to stop, weirdness. We had a busy week, and it is centrally located, so OK if you don't want fancy and just want sleep.

    « Room was nicely furnished »

    Room was clean, nice and the bed was comfortable. Nice amenities and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this Inn without any hesitation. The desk recommended a small restaurant/coffee shop across the parking lot and that was good as well.

    « BEST STAY EVER!!! »

    « Clean, well appointed room and very friendly staff »

    Just stayed in this hotel one night but was surprised by the king room and how nice it was. Lobby of the hotel was very nice and the staff were very friendly and welcoming! This room was awesome and the price was right!!. Didn't get a chance to take advantage of the breakfast so I can't help you there, but they do have a warm breakfast from what I heard. I stayed in room 224 and was very happy with the accommodations. Modern and very pleasant!!

    Great place to stay! Lady at the desk was super awesome! Nice and clean room as well with everything I could possibly need. The lady upfront even offered to match my rates with another hotel I had checked out. So she then said $69.99 I took the deal!

    Great clean room and breakfast! I would be sure to stop here on the way to Texas anytime! Biscuits and gravy and waffles were a big hit! Eggs were not as good. Coffee bold as it should be for travelers hitting the road.

    « Nice stay »

    A pleasant stay in McAlester. We stayed here over a year ago & it still is a good stay.. Rooms are comfortable, beds good. Nice well maintained breakfast room. As a note, we were here during huge all night thunderstorms & the room was very quiet. Would not have known it was pouring outside. Had no problems here. Would stay here again.

    « frequent stop »

    we have used this facility many times enroute to and from austin, texas, and always been satisfied. we prefer the old fashioned motel style where we can park right outside our room without having o traipse through a lobby. also, i can sit on the tailgate of my van and smoke a post drive cigar. now-adays i also am seeking out handicap accessible rooms (use of a walker). this inn fails a bit in that category: the room is pretty crowded with a walker in use and the bathroom is not fully ada-ready; that is no walk in shower. but the staff is always friendly.

    « AMAZING! »

    My husband, our dog and I arrived on a cold, rainy night - very late at night. Lisa, the front desk clerk, was incredibly accommodating and took care of us right away. The room was AMAZING! Very comfortable bed, fabulous pillows, clean, clean, clean - everything was clean! This is the place to stay when traveling through the area. THANKS to Lisa for her attention and kindness.

    « Awesome place to stay! »

    I would recommend this to everyone who is passing through and looking for a place to stay! The breakfast was very good with all kinds of treats and such. Also they had biscuits and gravy one of my very favorite meals. The rooms are very nice and you should stay here.

    « BEST PLACE TO STAY IN MCALESTER »

    1st let me say that if you do not give this place a try you are missing out. I have a construction company which leads me to travel and stay in many Cities and Towns across all of Texas and some in New Mexico and some in Oklahoma. My wife and I took a trip to Mcalester to look around Lake Eufaula. We booked a night at the Candlewood Suites. I am not saying that they were not nice but if the manager couldn't realize which of the employees were not on Meth then they need a visit from their owner. We were going to leave the next evening, however we did not get to visit all that we wanted and so we decided to stay another night. My wife said "ok" but not at Candlewood again. So I pulled into Best Western to check them out. I always ask to see a room before I do anything. This is an older style hotel but you can easily tell they have kept it up to date and it looked really clean. Let me set this up by saying 1st of all I was impressed by the lobby. 2nd Lisa was amazing at accomodating me after asking about the rooms and wanting to see one before I booked one(my wife is handicapped I should add). From there on I was hooked the room was extremely nice and updated to the best of rooms I have stayed, no way I would have went back to Candlewood. Not to mention the rates are very reasonable. We booked and Lisa again made everything so great that we are going back for just a weekend getaway again. The Serta perfect sleeper beds were fantastic and tons of channels. I give everyone my word that if you are travelling thru Mcalester Oklahoma, the Best Western is "THE" place to stay. Not sure who the owners are but if they are smart they will keep Lisa on board because she was awesome and I have stayed and dealt with a great many personnel at Hotels and she is in the tops. Ps. Nice tip the best breakfast in town is right in the parking lot "Marilyns" old time dining experience and home cooking. Was Great too.

    This motel was everything the reviews said. We had no problems and stay was quite comfortable in every way. We paid at the beginning of the stay so didn't even have to check out. Internet was good enough to watch Netflix which was not true at many other motels. Very good value.

    « Stopping point on way home »

    Excellent stay. The staff working the evening and early morning shifts were very pleasant and professional; Lisa was especially helpful and accommodating. The room was very clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. The lobby was very attractive and the breakfast area was large, clean and offered a nice selection of hot and cold items. Oklahomans have always seemed a friendly bunch to me, and they can be proud of this example of their hospitality.

    « Easy access to motel from highway - easy access to room from parking lot »

    The Best Western Inn of McAlester can be seen from and easily accessed from the intersection of US-69 and the George Nigh Expressway. Charli gave us a friendly greeting and told us how to find our room. We had a first floor room accessed directly from the parking lot. It was a pleasant room, clean with complimentary earth tone colors and wall hangings. There was a large closet pole and shelf. A sink counter and mirror were outside of a bathroom that contained the shower and toilet. Furnishings included a TV on top of a large chest, two beds, desk, plenty of lighting. The beds were comfortable and not too high off the floor. The pillows were comfortable. The clock didn't display any numbers, so we asked for a wake-up call and got it promptly. We mentioned the clock when checking out. Breakfast included eggs, sausage, biscuits, gravy, cereal, waffles, juice, coffee, milk. The breakfast attendant was a very gracious lady.

    We enjoyed our stay very much. We came in late but our room was there waiting. Staff was very nice and helpful. We have stayed there for the last four years to attend a car event in the area. Brought four other couples with us this year. Will stay again next year, I'm sure.

    « Excellent hotel, friendly staff »

    Our son attends school in Arkansas, and McAlester is a natural stopping point on for us on the way to Fayetteville. We first stayed at this hotel on a very cold February night. Since the car heater wasn't working very well, we were cold and tired and stopped at the first place we could find. When we checked in though, we found Lisa behind the counter--very professional, friendly, and helpful. That first experience was so pleasant that we plan to stay at this hotel on a regular basis. We've stayed there a few times since that first night and found the service consistent with all the employees, not just Lisa. The rooms are clean and well-maintained, the internet works well, and the breakfast is good. If, like us, you are tired of cheap motels that leave the light on for you or have lobbies that reek of incense, then this is the place for you.

    « Always Excellent! »

    I organize a weekend getaway for a regional car club annually to see the National Scenic Byway, and we have enjoyed staying at the Best Western for four years straight now. The management is wonderful and accommodating, the grounds are always well kept, the rooms are always clean, comfortable, and an excellent value. The Saab Club of Oklahoma has found a home away from home and we will continue to visit this establishment every time we come to the area.

    « outstanding service. compostable dishware in dining room instead of the usual styrofoam »

    If you are looking for a place to stop for the night and you are passing McAlester, OK, this is a wonderful option. I make a point of stopping here every trip between IL and TX. The proprietor, Lisa, is a treat to interact with. She is always pleasant and makes sure you know she is available to make your stay a good one. Something that is important to me is that they have compostable heavy duty paper plates, bowls, and beverage cups.

    « Pleastantly Surprised! »

    We've stayed in a lot of hotels in this price range, this was by far the best for the value! Room was updated with nice tile work throughout the bath. Breakfast was good. Lisa at the desk was very helpful and accommodating, even helped us book a room in another Best Western in another town. We will come back.

    « Helpful hotel desk clerk »

    We were traveling with elderly parents and stopped to check on rooms at the Best Western Inn of McAlester, OK. Lisa was extremely helpful in getting us two rooms together, on the ground floor, and by the ice machine. She also suggested Marilyn's Restaurant located next to the hotel, which had home cooking at good prices and was open until 10 pm. She also let us know that the pool was still open and didn't close until 1100 pm. The rooms were clean and quiet. It was a great place for us to stay and her suggestion for dinner was much appreciated.

    « I'd Do It Again here! »

    A quaint, clean motel with doors facing the outdoors. Plenty of truck parking. The lobby and staff are great!. The HOT breakfast was good too. But the eggs were the usual powdered eggs like most hotels are. The rooms were roomy and clean. The cable TV was ok. Too many channels to choose from and you couldn't tell which ones worked and which ones didn't. Coffee, microwave, fridge in room. The internet was not good. It did work but I was only a couple rooms away from the lobby and I could only get 1 bar. Very slow. Marilyn's Restaurant was right next door and was excellent down home cooking, great wait staff and the prices were very affordable. There was also a Shell convenience store gas station just on the other side of that. Ice machine and vending machines available too. There was no Bible in my room but I am pretty sure it was because someone took it with them. When I told the front desk about it they were surprised and said they would have to get it replaced and hoped it was a blessing to whoever took it.
