Day Two, July 5: Broken Bow, Oklahoma (Part 2)

Best Western sign

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.
