I am planning on driving with a friend to Ponca City from North Carolina in Oct. He spent several years there as a boy and wants to check the city out again. He is 83 and we were there for a few hours several years ago but want to go back. Is there a nice Motel/Hotel or Bed & Breakfast there that someone can suggest. We will only be there a couple of days before driving back into Oka. City to visit. Thanks.

We've stayed at the new Comfort Inn and it is really nice. Avoid the Super 8 at all costs. We had our locked luggage broken into and medication stolen a couple of years ago. Anything on the north end of town should be okay.

Be sure and visit the Marlin Mansion while you're there.

I managed the Domino's Pizza in Ponca City for eight years, and so am very familiar with the town. It has many hotels, but if I were you, I wouldn't settle for anything at the South end of town. The Econo-Lodge, Super 8, Lazy K, and Four Winds are quite shabby.

If you drive a couple of miles North, you'll find a Holiday Inn on your right. I belive that this is pretty much the middle of the road for price versus a nice place.

You have the Marland Mansion on Monument Drive, if you want an historic memory. Reservations are required. Downtown, on Grand, is the Rose Stone Inn, also a quaint type place.

Further North, as mentioned, are the Comfort Inn and Fairfield. Both okay. The service at that particular Fairfield, however, is less than stellar. The rooms are clean and nice, but you probably won't get much in the way of friendliness.

Be sure to see the Pioneer Woman museum, along with the Marland Mansion. Honestly, though, besides the lakes, they are the only tourist places in town.
