One night stop near Oklahoma City

We are moving my Daughter to Texas and will have a moving truck, 3 adults and 2 kids. We plan to stop in the Oklahoma City area for a one night stop. We'll be going down 44 from Tulsa and continuing on to Fort Worth.

We need a place close to the X-way, clean, cheap, and not a haven for pests. (2 legged to 8 legged) We would rather pay a little more than suffer the entire night. Adult ages are 62-62-38.

Any ideas please?????

Norman, OK would be a good place to stop for the night. It is just south of OKC, so you won't be caught in the OKC morning traffic when you take off in the morning. The Hilton Garden Inn in Norman is just off I-35, with easy access and is consistently rated as the best value in Norman. It's listed prices are cheap, but it gets rave reviews. Have stayed there once myself and found it to be just fine. Here's the link:

Consider exiting I-44 at Big Cabin (between Joplin and Tulsa) then taking US69 to US75 to TX121 which deposits you into downtown Fort Worth. This is 4 lane all the way, but it's not controlled access, so the speed limits may be lower and you will have to go through some small towns. On the plus side, you'll miss Tulsa and Oklahoma City, save 40 miles and $4 in tolls, and avoid the crazy I-35 corridor in north Texas. Muskogee or McAlester would be your best bets for an overnight stop on this alternate route.
