The rooms are on the small side but very clean. We stayed at the hotel over the Christmas holidays. The hotel was empty but the staff was EXCELLENT! There was always security driving around the property (in a safe area anyway). We will definitely stay here again if the price is right.

The facility is nice. If you were ever in a Military housing and/or barracks. This facility will remind you of those accommodations. There are activities for you to do. Indoor and Outdoor walking track. The outdoor walking track is the best. Fitness facility that includes other unique activities depending on week or day. The food is cafeteria style (something like...

This is a first class Mariott Resort disguised as the National Center for Education and Development. The hotel is dominated by USPS employees, but there is plenty of room and most are in class during the day or at night (sleepijg during the day). They stay together and their activities will not disrupt your stay. Food is buffet style and...

This hotel is part of a large federal post office training facility and therefore is different from any other Marriott hotel you may have stayed at before. It is more like an adult summer camp, or a cruise ship, with many activities planned each day like fitness, yoga, and relaxation classes. Alina is a great fitness instructor, who gives encouragement...

Though the rooms are small and out dated it is a clean and convenient place to stay while visiting norman. Beds are only queen and room is sort of small but the breakfast is nice and offers variety and is included in the room. That helps as the room is overpriced for what it is. The staff are nice and...

Nice place for business and pleasure. made this trip with my husband for work and I never knew this all existed. this was like a resort for professionals. Everything was in one place and the OKC was not far. We even took in a Thunder's game. Did I mention the breakfast was awesome.

This is a "Marriott" training hotel. Not a fully branded hotel. If you are in town for a conference or work- this place will work for you. It is not a vacation place. There are shuttles galore though so it does help.

Like so many have mentioned this is a conference center owned by the USPS. For years it was almost exclusively for USPS employees to stay while receiving their specialized (mainly tech fields) training. It has now been opened up as a conference center for the general population. For those who have been here in the past the guard at the...

Our relatives always stay here for the Sooners game and so since they were staying here, we also opted to make a reservation too. I will tell you that the rooms are very tiny. Really just enough room for the bed and chair. The bath and sink area is also small and there is no microwave nor fridge in the...

This complex is designed for training and conferences. The rooms, while functional, are small. More like a dorm room than a hotel/motel. Personally, I would not stay here overnight or as a base to visit the area. However, if you are having a conference or need large groups to train - this is the place to go. Everything is on...
