The small and well-preserved Victorian enclave of Guthrie
has a great selection of accommodation to fit all needs and wants. Guthrie hotels
are plentiful and varied, and while Guthrie motels may be hard to come by, there
is nonetheless a great supply of cheap Guthrie lodging available. The town is
a tourist attraction in its own right, attracting visitors from across the land
to its impressive collection of Victorian-era commercial architecture, and the
Wild West-style entertainment that has proliferated in recent years. Accommodation
in Guthrie also serves those on their way to elsewhere in the state; the town
is only a 30-minute drive from Oklahoma
City, and is also close to Tulsa,
the state's second city.
The Best Western Territorial Inn proves good bang for your buck compared to
many other Guthrie hotels. For a very reasonable nightly rate, visitors get
to enjoy all the modern-day conveniences you'd expect from a chain hotel such
as a 24-hour front desk, modem lines and cable TV, and the option to stay in
smoking or nonsmoking rooms. This is a little different from your average chain
hotel, however; the individual décor distinguishes it from the homogenized bunch,
and the friendly staff goes out of its way to get to know you and generally
aid you during your stay. With an outdoor pool, a pet-friendly policy, and one
of Oklahoma's airports 40
miles away, the Best Western makes for an accommodating and convenient stay
while still rivaling some of the Guthrie motels in terms of price, making it
an excellent choice for your Oklahoma
vacation to this area.
A similar example of cheap Guthrie lodging is the Sleep Inn, which is a clean and straightforward kind of place with a couple of nice touches, such as homemade waffles and fresh juice for breakfast in the morning. Perched on the edge of town, just off I-35, facilities here include an indoor pool, Jacuzzi, a gym, and suites that come with an extra bit of living space perfect for those looking to stay longer than just a couple of nights. As with most of the Guthrie hotels and Guthrie motels, the Sleep Inn often comes highly recommended by those who stay.
Guthrie is known as the B&B capital of Oklahoma, so you may wish to consider one of its excellent guesthouses when choosing cheap Guthrie lodging. The Pollard Inn is one such example. Partly housed in one of Guthrie's Victorian edifices, this is a charming, sociable type of place. For a little more money, the Railroad House B&B makes for a memorable stay. Its beautiful gardens and patios are ready-made for lazy days spent drinking coffee and reading. The home-cooked food is another attraction. Keep a particularly alert eye out for the chocolate cookies. They're not always available, but when they are, they're worth the nightly rate by themselves!
