“a tucked-away jewel”
very cozy and clean..... well maintained. more than I expected considering the cost.
“Excellent value - clean cozy room - pet friendly”
Our room had a very comfortable king-size bed. It also was equipped with a refrigerator and microwave - both in good working order (we used them both). The flatscreen TV worked fine - it had a sharp, clear picture on all channels. The heater worked great, and we were able to keep our room at just the temperature we like. This was one of the least expensive hotels in the area (through Expedia) and it was a great value, considering the price! It exceeded our expectations. The hotel is pet-friendly and charges $10/day for each pet. We travel with our small dog, and we found this to be a very reasonable fee. Right across the parking lot from our room was a large, grassy, well-lit area where we could walk our dog. This location is very close to the Frontier City amusement park, and there are numerous restaurants nearby. Some minor critiques - the "continental breakfast" is very minimal. Coffee, Milk, Juice, blueberry muffin, cerial, and that's it. I was not warmly greeted - the desk clerk was unsmiling and curt, but polite and efficient. The desklamp had no lightbulb - but all of the other lamps worked. The TV remote was weak and needed a new battery, but it worked if you held it close to the TV. There was no alarm clock in the room, but wakeup calls are available. (We use our phones, so no big deal.) The ice machine put out ice - very slowly - but we were able to get some. The cardkey was a little flakey, and it usually took multiple tries to unlock the door.
You get what you pay for: a nice hotel for its price range but nothing more. The "free breakfast" was fine, but just cereal, bagels, and coffee.
“Economy Inn- North OKC”
I needed a motel/hotel at the last minute and took a chance on going the "unpublished rates" venue on Expedia. I ended up with this hotel. The location of the hotel is in an area that has a very high volume of semi truck traffic due to the interstates and fuel stops so the service road off of IH-35 is very rough with pot holes etc... In fairness to the motel, the parking lot was very smooth and had recently been resurfaced and striped for the customers. The property itself was well maintained and very clean. The motel sits off the service road about 100 yds so the noise from the service road/interstate was not an issue whatsoever. Economy Inn is a no frills establishment but the service at check-in was very efficient and friendly. The manager asked if I would need internet access and provided the "passcode" without me having to request it. Wireless service was excellent. The room very clean and the bed, much too my surprise, was very comfortable.(King size). The water pressure in the showers was excellent as this particular property has yet to go to the water saving shower heads. Yes, strong water pressure from the showers and lots of hot water is a good way to start a day. If you're budget minded and need a clean and comfortable place to stay, I would recommend this motel. It met my needs as far as a bed and shower but I was a bit disappointed in the "unpublished rates" choices as this property appeared to be only one for that area of Edmond/ North OKC.
“Okay for the money”
Really old, a little dirty, used by construction workers, great location, great price and a very nice, clean firm bed. Close to resturants.
Room was very dirty! The wallpaper was pealing off the wall in the bathroom and the toilet wasn't clean. There was grease and grime everywhere. We had to clean our own room! The phone did not work and the door had no insulation, so the room got very cold. The floor was filthy and had not been cleaned. We expressed our feelings about our room to the staff and they didn't speak enough English to do anything about it, nor did they care. We also requested two extra pillows, and did not get them. They did not change the sheets out, only re-made the bed. We did not try the breakfast because we were afraid to, considering the shape the hotel was in. The room was also very noisy. Do not stay at this hotel! There are about six other hotels right next to this one. Any of them would be better than this hotel. This hotel needs to be completely gutted and re-built.
“OKC not OK”
Very pleased upon arrival. Good value for the price. UNTIL I walked to the bathroom and my socks got wet from the floor. The next morning there was a slight odor and i mentioned this and the wet floor to the front desk and asked if they would please take care of it while we were out. When we got back to our room at almost midnight that night. The room smelled bad, they had not cleaned the floor or our room in any way. Didnt even leave us fresh towels. Maybe it was just my bad luck. Would probably try it again for the money but maybe not.
“Economy Inn right by Frontier City.”
Staff was unprofessional, remote to tv didn't work, most of the outlets didn't work, no pool (buy there is a view of another motel that has one). This just wasn't the best place to put my money. Disappointing.
“This hotel not recommended.”
I booked two rooms, both non-smoking with king-size beds. Upon checkin, I was told only one of the rooms had a king bed, the other was a queen, and the queen bed room was a smoking room. The heater in the queen bed room did not work properly (it stayed on consistently). Breakfast was advertised between 6-9 a.m., however, no breakfast was available, with no explanation from staff. This was supposed to be a 2-2.5 star hotel, defintely a 1 star, at best.
“Got what we paid for.”
With this hotel, we got what we paid for. Upon arrival, I had to ring the bell 4 times before someone came to the front desk at 3 in the afternoon. Once that person came down, he told me that someone would be with me in 5 minutes. It took us a minute to get into our room because the knobs were loose and the electronic readers weren't working very well. Inside of the room, there was wall paper peeling off the wall, half of the outlets didn't work, and the shower stall was missing half of it's finish. When I tried to take a shower, I had either scalding hot or nice and chilly. The windows and door leaked cold air something horrible so you could smell all the smokers outside. The internet was hit or miss. It went down 3 different times during our stay. Couple all of that with the fact that the neighborhood and atmosphere doesn't feel very safe and it is fair to say that we will never stay at this place again. I've stayed in many cheap hotels but this one took the cake.
