Given Shawnee's relatively small size, Shawnee hotels tend be edge-of-town
type establishments, primarily catering for the business or leisure traveler
looking to stopover for a night or two on their way to the larger urban hubs
of Tulsa or Oklahoma
City. As such, Shawnee hotels and Shawnee motels are almost uniformly chain
franchises, which means finding cheap Shawnee
lodging really shouldn't be a problem at all. The following suggestions are
among the better of the options in town, and you may wish to consider them when
it comes to booking your accommodation in Shawnee Oklahoma.
If you're prepared to pay out around or over 100 dollars for a night's stay, the Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites is an excellent mid-range hotel that has earned many returning guests over the years. Everything here is clean and well furnished, from the air conditioned rooms which come with a kitchen area and multi-headed showers, to the outdoor swimming pool and cozy TV room. Breakfast here comes impressively stocked, and there are BBQ grills onsite for evening flame-grilled meat and vegetables if you so desire. The Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites is also situated within walking distance of a selection of restaurants (and other shops), providing plentiful evening dining options.
For just a little less money, the La Quinta Inn and Suites Shawnee is similar in terms of facilities to the Holiday Inn Express. As with most Shawnee hotels, it's located just off I-40, near shopping and entertainment attractions. The hotel boasts comfortable rooms that come in standard or deluxe: both have cable TV, a mini fridge, and other such standard amenities; the Deluxe rooms come with an extra bit of living space, and an added sofa bed. For those traveling to Shawnee on business, the La Quinta Inn comes with an equipped business center for meetings. It also offers an indoor pool, Jacuzzi, a small but adequate fitness room, and nearby fishing possibilities for ideal post-work unwinding.
In terms of cheap Shawnee lodging, there's plenty on offer from perfunctory Shawnee motels to bargain basement hotels. The Super 8 Shawnee, for example, is a small and well-managed example of Shawnee motels ideal for one-night stopovers. The 35 rooms here are well kept, and come equipped with a refrigerator, microwave, cable TV (HBO included), and free internet access. Aside from the happily affordable free, a major bonus of this motel is its pet friendly policy (although remember to call in advance, and be prepared to pay a small fee). Another good option when looking for cheap Shawnee lodging is the Days Inn Shawnee, which is located a short walk from one of the nearby casinos.
