We planned an overnight stop enroute from Illinois to our home in Texas. Norman, OK, seemed like an appropriate distance for our first leg so we shopped for a hotel there (using TripAdvisor, of course).We were certainly not disappointed in our choice.
We arrived when the weather turned windy and very cold, and juggled things (including our dog) out of the van and into the warm and welcoming lobby. The desk attendent reported that several of the housekeeping staff had called off and she had helped fill in.
Well, our room was not only ready for us, but very comfortable, roomy and quiet. The hotel is located on the outer road of the interstate and shares space with a nice collection of family restaurants. After supper and a good night's rest, we enjoyed a delicious breakfast with a selection that included meat and scrambled eggs.
The best part: I had lost one of my favorite earrings in the parking lot when we first arrived. I notified the front desk right away. On our way to breakfast, I stopped one more time at the front desk to inquire about my loss. As it turned out, someone found the earring in the parking lot and turned it in. It was a little scuffed, but our favorite jeweler cleaned it up.
The bottom line: our brief, but entire stay was very pleasant and the customer service superb. We will plan to stay there whenever we make a stop in Norman.
