Shady Point, Oklahoma
Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

This hotel is right by the sea, it has lovely views, I believe each room has a sea side balcony. Private swimming pool and hot tub, private beach with seating. Rooms are very clean, smell amazing, and the staff is very helpful. Breakfast has a huge selection.

The entire place was wonderful. The staff were very friendly. Plenty of parking (though it could have just been because of the time of year for the visit). The location was perfect. Thomas' Donuts was a short walk down the road as well as a few other great touristy eateries. My only real complaints: we were not told when checkout...

The location and view from every room is fantastic looking out to the gulf. All rooms had kitchen and seperate bedroom and living areas. Service was great and location was easily access able to attractions and shopping. The advertised breakfast was almost non-existent. However it was a great trip over all.
