I am allergic to cigarette smoke and mold, so I cannot stay just anywhere. Also, I admit I am a neat freak and I strive to stay in the cleanest place possible. There were two big youth sports events in Broken Arrow this weekend, and my child was participating, so I had to get a hotel since we are out of state, and the competition was over two days. I stayed at a rat trap the first night, and checked out and came to this Holiday Inn when I found a room open up. I am so glad I switched hotels...very comfortable, no odors, and very clean.
It wasn't perfect: First, we didn't get our room until well after 4pm due to slow room cleanup from the night before. The internet at this site is the slowest I've ever seen, but they do have two computers and internet access for guests (but the connection is SLOW). A plastic part fell off the room heater (it was 30 degrees outside so we needed heat) the Heat was working but this little part just fell off the blower. The coffee at breakfast kept running out and the help was slow to refill. The toiletries were very few--ran out of shampoo and conditioner with three people--a little stingy on those. Also, the water pressure in the bathroom sink was really weak; could barely brush my teeth.
BUT...there were many good things: We had a 2 Qu room with a little microwave and minifridge, along with a full-sized ironing board with iron, and a hair dryer was in the bathroom. The bathrooms were clean and large with an extra tall ceiling and a curved rod to give even more room while in the shower. The bed was firm and comfortable, with soft pillows and many cable channels. The rug and walls were clean and pleasant. Granite countertops in the bathroom. No bad odors, or perfumes sprayed to cover up odors--was genuinely clean. The water in the shower was not weak like the sink and worked very well, and was nice and hot on a cold winter day. Newer tile and wallpaper throughout. Pleasant staff. Hot and cold items included in the room rate, including many types of coffee, waffles, fruits, yogurts, other hot items, and a pleasant dining room to eat. Although, I found that people in this general area like to stand right in front of things and take their time with no regard to other guests, but maybe its just an Oklahoma thing, because they did that in restaurants in the area and also at the local department store. Oh well. Anyway, this property is close to MANY things--a cinema, many chain restaurants like Oklahoma Joes, Applebees, Buffalo Wild Wings, Longhorn Steak house, and many fast food options within a mile. Also this property is like less than a mile away from the local very large hospital if that is important to you. Another thing is that this property shares a parking lot with a steak-n-shake, and a couple of small coffee shops, as well as another hotel and a few small businesses. It is on a hill overlooking the Broken Arrow city area, which is actually kind of pretty at night for a small-sized town. I would stay here again.
