    Best beds of our 4 day trip thru Oklahoma, room was big and clean ,newer model TVs,Bathroom clean and roomy .Breakfast was better than the other Name hotels we stayed at, the young woman in the area kept food stocked and hot. There was eggs ,sausage,gravy, waffles,and all the other things you expect and a little more.

    « Fun place to stay »

    Four of us went to Poteau on a fall foliage trip recently and spent the night at the Best Western Traders Inn. The room was comfortable and clean and the staff was wonderful. They were friendly and fun. The lobby area is beautiful and the breakfast the next morning was excellent.

    « This Is It !!!! »

    I always stay at this hotel when I'm in the area. One of the best managed hotels that I stay when I am out on business. All of the amenities are great. The rooms are kept up to date and they are well cleaned. They offer a great, hot breakfast and the food is very good. The room air conditioners work as they should which also seems to be the number one problem that I encounter in a lot of motels that I have stayed at while I'm out on business trips. I've stayed at other hotels in Sallisaw, OK and at Ft Smith, AR and none of them come close to the Best Western Traders Inn at Poteau, OK. It is in a very good location and not far from good places to eat at for your evening meals. There is a Wal Mart Super Center across the street with gas pumps. For all of you folks looking for a really good hotel to stay at, when your out on the road, this is it, and enjoy how a hotel should be in treating their customers with the utmost satisfaction. Thank you as always to all of you at the Traders Inn, Dave Wake

    « Great place »

    Very well kept motel. We were on the back side and it was very quiet. Very nicely decorated room. Clean. Comfortable bed. Would definitely stay again. Good location, near wal mart. You can park your car close to your door!

    « Excellant motel »

    This motel is easy to get to, attractive, well kept, clean, comfortable and has an excellent staff. We had been to the Fayetteville Blues, Bikes, & BBQ and had driven the Talmenia Scenic Drive (beautiful!). We were ready to relax and rest. This motel was GREAT! We plan on staying here again when we are in this area.

    « The Best Hotel that I stay at in this price range it should have atleast a 4 star rating, I would give it a 5 star r »

    I do not believe that you will find another Hotel that will match this one in this price range. Everything from the time you get out of your car you find yourself saying this looks real nice. Then you will go up to the Front Desk to be met with a Big Smile and a what to serve you. Next you will walk into a VERY NICE ROOM. The beds are very good, pillows were Ok but still a bit to big. There was NO SMELLS. The breakfast was good. Eggs are the flat micro type. When you check out the STAFF Once Again will met you with a smile and a BIG THANKS for staying with them at TRADERS INN. I drove away feeling rested and refreshed.

    « THE BEST »

    I have stayed at Traders Inn 4 times now and each time it was a GREAT STAY. The Staff is Great. The rooms are very clean with NO BAD SMELLS at all. The beds and pillows will help you rest peacefully. I could go on, but if you stay here you will be very happy that you have also stayed at TRADERS INN in Poteau OK THANKS TO ALL OF THE STAFF

    « Great value! »

    The breakfast had a lot to choose from. The staff was extremely friendly. We had a non smoking, pet free room and it was extremely clean with no smells. We stayed the first night at a nearby hotel and though it was extremely clean, with helpful, friendly staff, the breakfast was horrible and it cost more money!

    « Great place to stay »

    Our baseball team stayed for 2 nights. The price was great and the rooms were very clean. They were very accommodating for our large group. The employees went out of their way to help us in whatever we needed and were very polite. Would highly recommend if you are ever staying in poteau-heavener area.

    « Family trip »

    Everyone there was so friendly. Even accommodated my new great nephew who was only 6 weeks old at time of visit. Great free breakfast. The only thing about breakfast, maybe alternating bacon, ( crispy), sometimes. Over all, I would stay there again. Oh yeah, Walmart is across the street, and there is a microwave and mini fridge in the rooms.

    « Great value, comfortable bed, nice pool, very clean »

    Stayed one night and was good experience. The bed was so comfortable. The area was nicely landscaped and clean. The room was spotless and the pool was clear and refreshing; it also had a shady area which I appreciated. Could hear road traffic so recommend room on the other side. Need to bring your own amenities such as shower cap and lotion. Staff really friendly; I left an item behind and when I called a few days later they sent it to me. Breakfast was good and a decent partial to the biscuits and gravy!! I would stay again.

    « Excellent Hotel, Friendly Staff, Clean Facilities »

    I recently stayed at the Best Western Traders Inn in Poteau for a Wedding, and the facilities very nice & very clean. I was well welcomed by the staff and made to feel right at home. They were willing to give me multiple pool towels & extra room keys throughout my stay upon request. I woke up to a very good and filling breakfast meal also served by a very friendly lady serving the breakfast. I travel for work, would like to send a great report on the staff & facilities behalf. They operate in excellence & I recommend a stay at the Best Western Traders Inn in Poteau.

    « Wonderful Stay »

    I stayed at the Best Western Traders Inn the weekend of June 24th. Since my daughter was the one getting married I was very involved with the rooms for the Wedding party. The staff and owner and manager Kris were very helpful with everyone that had a part in this Wedding party. Not one person that was actually involved in the wedding party had one negative thing to say about this hotel or the staff. Thank you all for the quickness of getting everyone in the wedding party in and keeping the pool open for our little ones and for the wonderful breakfast ad lady named Linda that worked the mornings we were there. Thank you to manager and owner for taking such good care of the Wedding party!!!!

    « Don't stay at Best Western, the Holiday Inn Express is across the street! »

    Service here is a joke. I booked a room for a wedding group. I told myself the Holiday Inn Express is probably a better choice but went against my better judgement for the convenience of the wedding group being in one hotel. Unfortunately that was a mistake on my part. The "manager" Kris refused to give me the group rate, although others in the party were given the reduced rate. I had a change to my accommodations when I arrived for check-in but again she refused to make any attempt to accommodate me. The rooms have black mold in the bathroom, something I wasn't aware of until the next morning while I was in the shower. Unless you are 5' tall or less the shower heads are about useless. The bathroom has rusty ceiling tiles and paint is missing from the bedroom ceiling. Spend the extra $5 and stay at the Holiday Inn Express!

    « Very Good »

    This is a very good place to stay. Very nice staff,clean rooms, good breakfast;. Staff goes out of their to make you comfortable and pleased. This hotel is close to several eating places. Several places to shop.

    « Very nice »

    The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. It was easy to get too. The highway was close. Close too everything in town and Comfortable room and used our points too stay here. We will stay again here if we go that direction. Nice halfway stop on our trip to Branson.

    « Great Stay »

    The facility is older but very well maintained I experienced no issues during my two days there. I have worked off shore and stayed in dozens of motels. I have never ever in my life stayed in such a clean motel room. My coworkers stayed there on our second work day based on my recommendation. They were equally pleased with the facility and the exceptional room.

    « great »

    I stay at this best western when ever I'm in poteau, OK. Just a very managed motel. Always a friendly staff and very well kept. Makes other motels that I've stayed at look sick. Very clean and neat. They also have a excellent hot breakfast with very tasty food.

    « Very Nice »

    This is a very nice hotel. It is in a very nice location within easy walking distance of shopping and dining. The staff is all very friendly and helpful. The view from the top floor rooms is nice! The breakfast area is very nice and clean with a good selection of items to chose from.

    « A Busman's Holiday Stay »

    I had the last weekend of February to photograph scenic vistas on the way to Rich Mountain, Arkansas. The Traders Inn was an ideal choice. The room was comfortable and just a short walk to the dining area. I will stay at this property again in the fall when the leaves change.

    « night on the road »

    Found this hotel with my phone app. Was close and within budget. Hotel was close to a couple restaurants and a store just down the street. the room was clean and quiet, the only thing i had trouble with was the internet speed was horrible, so if your a streamer this wont be the place for you.

    « Excellent Service »

    The manger/supervisor of the hotel had accommodated us and our family. The reason we were in Poteau was my wife was adopted. She recently found out that her and her two brothers (all adopted together) had biological siblings in Poteau: two more younger brothers, a little sister, and cousins. Due to us needing more room I asked if the hotel would allow six people in the breakfast room so we could eat pizza and play card games - generally over all being able to bond. You were able to make us comfortable by allowing us to do this, you showed kindness and that's what people including myself are looking for. Not everyone is going to need the extra space like we did but the hotel was more than willing to help. Rooms were clean, all staff from front desk, management, breakfast staff, to maids were all very friendly thank you. We are planning to visit Poteau in the future and this hotel will be or first choice for us, and any possible recommendations in the future. Thank you again. Side note: Sink got clogged for a few min in the room but I find this normal at a lot of hotels - some guests probably introduce items to drain that should not be there - we didn't view this as a issue.

    « Great! »

    Nice clean motel! No smoke smell, beds and pillows smelled clean! Tons of pillows on the beds, quiet air conditioning system not noisy like most motels, Comfortable beds! Friendly staff, good breakfast! Good location, rooms are spacious! Will stay again!

    « Fall Foliage Ride »

    We have a group that stays at the Best Western in Poteau each year. The staff is wonderful, the price is right, the rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast has always been great. We will be back again next year!

    « Oct 28th »

    The hotel was real nice. The breakfast was o k the biscuits were not heated all the way through and i would like to see more items that someone who was gluten free could eat. Over all real nice place an a good value, I would stay again.

    « Clean »

    Nice remodeled clean room. Beautiful new exposed aggregate overlay in front of lobby and on the sidewalks and around pool in back. A little noise from railroad, but no big deal. Had a/c on all night so didn't hear any outside noise. Nice friendly staff. Next day was going to be Hot air balloon fest with 15 balloons. Rained that morning, but cleared off in afternoon. Probably hadn't rained in a month or more.

    « Clean and comfortable »

    This hotel was clean and newly remodeled. It had a pool outside behind the hotel that was away from the public. The new floor covering around the pool was sharp on feet but ware a pair of aqua socks and it will be fine. Nice location and quiet. We were their in late September after tourist season. Room charge was very reasonable.

    « Hog Rally »

    I would recommend this hotel in a heartbeat. The rooms are very nice and beds comfortable, nice size rooms, and friendly staff. Plus there was a large selection of items for breakfast. Pool was clean and refreshing, nice area with a gazebo. Hotel was clean inside and out.

    « Wonderful Place To Stay »

    This is my second stay at the Best Western Traders Inn, Poteau, OK. I was pleasantly surprised at how they had upgraded the rooms. They were clean and neat with quality mattresses, bedding, and an upgraded HD television. The room had full service satellite TV as well. The best part was the service. From the front desk to the room service, all of the employees were friendly, courteous, and willing to go the extra mile to ensure my stay was outstanding. I will definitely choose this hotel for my next stay in the area.

    « Great Hotel »

    Very Clean and the staff is wonderful. Great hotel to stay at. We always stay here on our motorcycle trips. It is a nice location and very well maintained. We have stayed at this hotel many times and it is the only hotel we stay at when we travel through Poteau.

    « my acking neck »

    I sure wish that the Best Westerns through out the country would give more choice of pillows. 98% of all Best Westerns have only one type of pillow. This pillows I would say are big and will not flatten down. If I use the pillows I wake up with a kink in my neck. PLEASE GIVE YOUR CLIENTS A CHOICE OF PILLOWS.

    Hotel was very Clean. The service desk person very friendly and courteous. Breakfast was awesome. Our room was very clean and quiet. The king bed was very comfortable. This was the last day of our stay in Poteau, Ok. and I was very impressed. My stay was in the middle of summer and AC unit worked very well. It was close to Walmart shopping center. I will definitely stay here again the next time I go to Poteau. My
