“Good”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Overall, this Best Western was very good. The staff were very nice and prompt. The Waffle Shoppe, had ok food. Just average. The only problem we had was the very cold draft coming from underneath and side of door.

Thank you for the compliment on our staff. We do our best to provide excellent customer service. We also have done several renovations to our rooms and have addressed the issue with the door. We look forward to seeing you again.

we had to break our journey due to bad weather and decided to stay at this Best Western. Overall, we had a good experience. the room was nice and clean. The receptionist was welcoming. the price was a bit high than similar Best Westerns we have stayed lately but then it was a walk-in, although we did reserve the room couple hours before we reached the hotel.

the only thing we didn't care for as much was the breakfast. we would have loved it if we didn't have to go across to a restaurant with the coupons issued by the hotel.

We are sorry that you had to travel during the bad weather that moved through. Everyone was so pleasant and kind even though you were all obviously dealing with terrible road conditions. We are glad to see your trip ended safely. Our breakfast is served at the onsite restaurant located 40 ft from our lobby and we feel that a meal served hot off the grill rather than from a food warmer is a better service to our guests. I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy it but glad to see that your overall experience was enjoyable. We hope to see you again, without the ice storm next time!

We spent a Wednesday night while traveling through Durant. The hotel had been updated and the king room was a little drafty, but clean, comfortable, nicely done, and a good value. We would rate this 4 stars, except for the "free breakfast". If you stay on a weekday, you will be given a coupon good for a $3.00 breakfast at the Waffle House next door. On the weekends there is the standard Best Western breakfast available on-site. This information is not revealed on their website. So, if you stay on a weekday, like a Waffle House breakfast, and don't mind "tipping" for a "free breakfast", this will provide a good overnight stay.

We appreciate your compliments on our rooms. I would like to clarify our breakfast offer. It is good for a free hot breakfast, cooked to order, or $3.00 off of any menu item. We do this for many reasons, one being that our guests can have breakfast any time during their stay and not be restricted to a 3 hour window that is standard for continental breakfasts. Again, thank you for sharing the fact that our rooms have been updated. We are very proud of our room renovations and hope to see you again soon!

We stayed here on the way to Tulsa and it was very reasonably priced. The rooms faced outdoors which is not my ideal situation but they were clean and updated. The complimentary breakfast was waaaaay better than a standard continental breakfast. I would stay here any time I'm in Durant again

On our way back to OKC, during a recent road trip to view the fall foliage on Talimena Skyline Drive, we wound up in Durant just as it was getting dark. Thanks to the nice experience we had last August, staying at the Best Western in Poteau, we asked someone where the Best Western in Durant was located. We found it easily and spent a very comfortable night there at a very comfortable price. The free Wi-Fi was nice as was the "where to eat" tip provided by the desk clerk. (She suggested El Tapatio, just down the road. It was a great suggestion.) The bed was perfect in terms of firmness, the room was immaculate and the nice breakfast provided by the hotel the next morning was very tasty. The place met or exceeded all of my expectations and I think it is an excellent value.

The Best Western Markita Inn has been updated recently and they did a very nice job. The rooms are updated with quality beds, bedding and pillows. Rooms contain a microwave and mini-fridge. The grounds are clean and maintained. Overall a nice, comfortable stay for the price.
