We had a wonderful time. The hotel is beautiful, the room was very comfortable, the restaurant food and staff all fantastic, and the staff were all professional and courteous. The casino was nice and for a smaller casino it was well ventilated which is good as my wife is allergic to cigarette smoke; she had no complaints. This was a great get away for an over night trip and a happy surprise for my wife's birthday.

There are several nice antique shops and a winery all within walking distance and there are shops on the property as well. We have stayed at several "Casino Resorts" in Oklahoma and this was by far one of the nicest. I recommend researching the history behind this hotel. If the way things are done today are representative of days past is explains why several celebrities had stayed there. And the location in Central Oklahoma - off the Interstate - make this a nice quiet location for a peaceful stay with a lot of history in the area revolving around the Chickasaw Nation. We will be making The Artesian Hotel as stop in the future for either birthdays or anniversaries.

Amazing that a place this nice could be found in the middle of Oklahoma. Very good staff and the spa was outstanding. Aubree Anna is tremendous! Pool was nice but not very "beach like" due to its location. The staff was very helpful and the food was good. Prices are good. Very easy to get to and is only going to be a secret for a short time. Word will get around.

I stayed at The Artesian Hotel in July 2014. I had seen a story about it on Discover Oklahoma and wanted to stay there. I was not disappointed. The hotel is beautiful. The main lobby has lots of good seating and there are individual lobbies on each floor. The room was great with comfortable beds, a beautiful marble shower, and everything else one could want or need. We visited the Casino which was a fun experience, used the swimming pool and hot tub area, and had a meal at the restaurant (The Springs). We also visited the shops around the perimeter. It is a great getaway for friends, couples or family. Every hotel staff person was helpful and sincere. I highly recommend this facility. I will be back.

Room Tip: Every room was great.

This is my 2nd review for the Artesian. This is hotel is simply beautiful with great service and nice furnishings/lobbies on each level, along with a good restaurant (the Springs), indoor/outdoor pool, large relaxing indoor hot-tub like pool with rock wall waterfall, a cool bar (the Fountain), and a nice little casino. I had an Executive King room this time; I love the "regular" rooms but this one was fantastic! It had corner window seats, super comfortable bedding, a small balcony w/sliding door & overlooking pool area, a fantastic bathroom with separate tub and marble/slate shower with rain head, flat screen TV, Keurig coffee maker, iron & board, safe, micro fridge, everything. Staying here is a great R&R getaway! Relaxing, very quiet, wonderful. Check out the shops and Bedre' café around the perimeter of the hotel. I highly recommend staying at the Artesian hotel; you won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: Not much activity in Sulphur, OK but the Chickasaw National Recreation area is right across the str...

We stayed on a Wednesday and Thursday night for our anniversary. Everything was wonderful, from the room to the employees. The only thing I would do differently would be better lighting in the bathroom. We loved every minute and will be back!

Because the General Manager assured us the heat and air system was now much improved, we stayed at the Artesian again recently -- 65 degrees for sleeping was perfect. Enjoyed The Springs Restaurant; the Fountain Club, especially Aubree-Anna's performance and the delightful Henry; the shops; and -- as we have for decades -- the Chickasaw National Recreation Area. The hotel and restaurant staff was unfailingly friendly and helpful, even though shorthanded at times. So I've upgraded my earlier review to "Excellent."

Nice accomodations, restaurant, cafe and gift shops on the property.
Beds too soft for me. Needed more elevators when they planned this hotel. Big complaint was waiting on elevator all of the time. No, we are not going to walk stairs at 67 years old. Very attentive staff. Very quite despite being on a busy highway all hours of the night. Well built. Bath house is very nice. Large whirlpool. Very nice swimming pool.
I would give this hotel a "5" but for one thing. A no firearms policy. I can understand this for the casino and bar. I will and did have my firearm in my room. I carried it into and out of the hotel. I did not carry it once the firearm was in my room. Did not carry into any shops, cafe or restaurant. I will have it in my room and in my possession when I leave for the parking area. That was a hassel. Overall a good stay.

Room Tip: Away from elevators
