The Best Western Plus Midwest City Inn & Suites is convenient to I-40, Tinker Air Force Base, and a host of stores and restaurants.
We stayed here twice, going out west and again on our return. Our rooms were very comfortable, clean, and uncrowded. Best Western hotels, including this one, have comfortable beds...obviously the key issue in a hotel. "Plus" hotels like this one add to the bed comfort by being "three sheeted."
I really appreciate the side tables on each side of the king bed. Happily there is an accessible wall power outlet on one side. That is adequate though I prefer the nice Best Western side table lamps that have a power outlet in their base similar to the desk lamps. For me easily accessible bed side power access is important because I can read from bed using my Android mobile phone in Kindle mode and set it on the side table before falling asleep (well...sometimes) and it's still charged in the morning.
The rooms have a comfortable and adjustable office chair with a work desk that has plenty of work space. There is a welcome power outlet in the desk lamp plus a wall power outlet installed above the desk for easy access. There is an Ethernet wall jack (Ethernet cables are available at the front desk) along with broadband Wi-Fi.
Restroom: it is always a relief to discover that the room has more than the normal limited counter space. Happily also, at this hotel the counters are at a height for average humans (I have oft wondered why so many hotels have counter space designed for people who are 6'4"). Also, unlike some hotels, the restroom here does not have a sink counter that protrudes into your gut as you brush your teeth. I was also pleased to note that this hotel has very good water pressure.
I like the bowed-out shower curtain rod used in all Best Western hotels to provide more elbow room while showering. Some time back we bought the same model for our home. I also appreciated this hotel installing the TP dispenser where a human can reach it. I am ever surprised at the number of hotels that place these where one must perform a contortionist act to reach it. Not at this Best Western.
In addition to the usual room amenities like a coffee machine and iron, the rooms here have a microwave and refrigerator.
- Friendly staff
- Nice indoor pool and fitness center (but, alas, no whirlpool)
- Convenient business center with computers and printer
- Clean and well maintained throughout
- Free breakfast common to all Best Western hotels including my favorite, Belgian waffles
Street access to the hotel is a little odd. Look carefully for a street next to an Interstate entrance, cross the parking lot for another hotel and pull into parking for this hotel. Coming from I-40 West it is impossible during rush hour to make the right turn and cross lanes to pull into the access street for this hotel. It is safer to move on until you find a safe way to move to the left lane and then do a U-turn.
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Plus Midwest City Inn & Suites. The cost is reasonable, the location convenient, and the hotel offers a relaxing and restful stay. Just the way we like it.
