Fresh Room is just the beginning!
Don was a great host! I was made comfortable right away.
I have been working in OKC looking to avoid corporate hotel chains. Don's place was like being at home. The neighborhood was similar to mine back home.
I would definitely recommend Don's place to travelers looking for a nice room and the opportunity to connect with good people.
Thanks Don! See you soon!
Great communication and coordination, starting with the prearrangements, the check in, and throughout the stay all went smoothly. A full five stars would have been awarded, but we were asked (and acquiesced) to accept a different bedroom which was up a level and further from the toilet. Not a big deal but as the description mentions, there is one bathroom for all roomers. There was never a specific problem though I felt sheepish when I discovered that I had gone in while a roomy was between bathing and finishing his toothbrushing. We were extended over the top courtesies and generosity and immediately felt like part of the gang.
Don and Zhander were amazing hosts! Offered to pick me up from the bus stop when I arrived. First night there, they took me out to an amazing Chinese restaurant (which I highly recommend), then after, took me on a tour of Oklahoma City, pointing out all the important areas!
The room was incredibly comfortable, and I slept brilliantly! Zhander's beautiful Steinway grand piano in the living room is a spectacle to behold, even if you're not musically inclined, and listening to him play was an absolute pleasure!
They were kind enough to offer me the use of one of their cars which, although I didn't take the opportunity (coming from NZ, I felt alittle way driving in the right side of the road in a big city), the fact that they offered it to me was awesome!
The following night, I got to go to the restaurant that Don manages, and have an amazing burger for dinner (another recommendation). The Zhander kindly drove me back to the bus station so I could catch the night bus.
Although I only spent 2 nights there, I was very welcomed and had a great time!
Would highly recommend anyone passing through to stay with these 2 great guys!
Oh, and Tucker (the blind border collie) was such a lovely and happy animal! Made me miss my pets at home!
Don's place was very cozy and near everything!!! I would most definitely stay there again. Thank you Don!
Don was a fantastic guest...very clean and respectful. He's welcome back anytime!
