As we were approaching the city of Broken Bow in Oklahoma, my husband and I talked about having an early dinner because we were very hungry. And we thought of the same thing, buffet. 🙂 We saw McDonald and Pizza Hut from a far but, surprisingly, there was a Chinese Buffet Restaurant. So we stopped there and eat dinner before checking in the hotel.
It was just a few minutes past the check-in time and hurriedly I gave my husband the confirmation number of our room reservation then he went to the hotel’s front desk. I was surprised when he got out of the door so quickly. I asked why. He said the staff told him “Maybe next time.” WRONG HOTEL! What a blooper. Hahaha! We were trying to check in at Best Western Hotel but our room accommodation is at Microtel Inn, which is just right next to it but a few yards farther. Microtel Inn’s sign is huge and the first thing you will see by eye level.
It was a very hot day. Our stay was only for a day so we relaxed a little while and prepared for the afternoon drive to the lake. So Broken Bow Lake has a resort called Beavers Bend State Resort Park. It’s a huge state park. Great for outdoor activities like camping, hiking, bird watching, nature trekking, swimming, and boating.
