“Bacon Doesn't Float”
Reviewed 19 August 2011

We arrive at 1:40 but could not check in until 2:00 which is their policy but I felt like the clerk put us off because he could. There was no activity and I have never had to wait before.
The room was great, clean and well done.
We went to the pool and while in the pool saw something on the bottom that looked like bacon. Sure enough there were 4 slices of bacon and other debris around the filter. Reported to a housekeeper who got the clerk. He pretty much let us clean the pool. Finally he did take the bacon and finshed cleaning the debris from the drain area.
At breakfast there wasn't any regular coffee, only decaf. Seems no one thawed out the reg coffee and the clerk had no idea how to get it thawed.

My wife and I stayed at the Sleep Inn in Norman, OK which is next to the RiverWind Casino (you could walk the distance but not in 105 degrees). They have a shuttle which will drop you off and pick you up (when your pockets are empty) if needed. We didn't use the shuttle but I'm sure it's busy on weekends. This hotel is really new so it was nice.

The room was a little small but entirely adequate with a nice bathroom (that included tub and shower). The hotel grounds and hotel itself was very clean. Breakfast was very adequate and plentiful. The room had a small microwave, coffee maker and apartment/dorm refrigerator.

Staff was friendly and informative. We did not use the pool which was outside and clean. Grounds were well kept and parking was more than adequate. All in all we would stay again and hope that we had better luck at the casino
