Default Driving through Oklahoma next week, where should I stop to rest?

I'll be passing through Oklahoma on 44 next week on my way to Texas. Oklahoma City is about the midpoint of my trip, so I'd like to stop for the night between there and the Texas border. Can anyone suggest a good place to stop in that area that will have decent hotel rooms at a reasonable price?

I'm not necessarily looking for specific hotel recommendations (although they would be welcomed), just a town that would be likely to have a clean, reasonably-priced hotel. I'd be rolling in at around 10pm or so and pulling out by 7am so I wouldn't need any amenities beyond a single bed and a shower.

Thanks!

Hard to tell ..... it is usually hit or miss, even with the chains.

I would avoid OKC for the night and instead get a hotel in between outside of major towns.

I've traveled through Oklahoma in route to Texas numerous times. There are plenty of places. The chain hotels are usually clean, reasonably priced and fit the criteria of what you need (single bed and shower). I recommend you stop in either Edmond, Oklahoma City (of course not in inner-city), or Moore. The hotels are usually not too far from the major interstates and hwys. The more inexpensive chain lodging are Holiday Inn, Days Inn, and Red Roof Inn. All of these are in the area that you'll be traveling through.

On my way back to OK City from Texas, its the Candlewood Suites that looks the the nicest from I-35. I think there's one in Ardmore, real close to the state-line.

Nothing wrong with a Motel 6 if there is one on your route. Simple, no frills, inexpensive.

We found hypodermic needles in the parking lot when we stopped at Motel 6. We usually hit LaQuinta or Hampton Inn. They have free breakfasts!

I am a HUGE fan of the Red Roof Inn chain but not the one by OKC. It is a dump.
