Stayed here on a weekday night while traveling to TX. Location was good, just off US69. Room was average, a bit dated, not dirty, internet was slow, service was ok. Breakfast was nothing. Just pretty average.

I guess you get what you pay for. We travel through Mcalester often. Decided to save couple bucks but not worth it. Bath towels were size of hand towels. Room was clean but tired. Very noisy. Sounded like people above us were having a foot stomping contest. Several "guests" were hanging out on parking lot and walkways. Only thing missing... More

We have been here several times and it's always the same. Raj checked me in(it seems like he's always there). Had a good night sleep and a good bfk. this morning. The only thing that may bother some is the road noise from the hwy. I think the price more than makes up for it.

To be honest, because of the very reasonable rate I was expecting some issues. (There were none) My wife and I were very pleased with our accommodations. Very clean......the room, the lobby and breakfast area. Older property but the room seemed recently spruced up. Very comfortable bed. Nice sized room. Easy on and off of highway. Plenty of food choices... More

My wife and I were traveling home from Texas and needed a place to stay for the night. The Econo Lodge was at a good location to stop and was reasonably priced. We arrived late at night and the person at the front desk got us checked in quickly. Unfortunately, there was a problem with the toilet in our room,... More

My daughter and I stayed here on a quick trip to Dallas. Room was clean and surprisingly quite due to the closeness of the building to the highway. Bed comfort was ok. Reception was nice. Breakfast was the same as you get any where in a hotel with free breakfast. I would stay here again.
