Tiny rooms...a rabbit warren. Overpriced for what you get. The staff is very friendly.

Location: The location is not great, but you can get to most places (i.e. restaurants, etc.) rather quickly

4-star resort with small rooms

Pros: Basically everything !!!
Cons: The ONLY drawback is the room size, which is definitely small - about 2/3's of a "normal" Marriot hotel - but that was by design when it was built
Location: This NCED hotel / conference center is minutes from Lake Thunderbird; minutes from Lloyd Nobel arena, Owen Field and OU campus; and 30 min. from OKC.
Behold "your tax dollars hard at work" !!! This hotel was built as part of a USPS national training center just outside of Norman, Oklahoma - and it was built RIGHT, with every part of the construction being top notch. In fact this facility was only for USPS employees until around 2011-12 when it was opened to the public to offset USPS budget cutbacks. So what do you get here? Let's review... Huge Olympic swimming pool, two 15 person hot tubs (both the pool and hot tubs are salt water), complete locker rooms with dry saunas and hot tubs, a full gymnasium with basketball court and indoor soccer, a "fitness" room (ropes, balls, etc), a full weight room (pro free weights and Cybex equipment), tennis and racquetball courts, pool tables, and even a softball field. The only "rentals" they have available are: bicycles and two acoustic guitars (???). Racquets, balls, towels, and anything else you want is available at no cost - just ask for it and they give it to you! What about dining. Breakfast is included with your room (double check to be sure) and it is a HUGE cafeteria. Not the "little muffins and bananas" of most hotel breakfasts. There is also a "restaurant" open for evenings, and fresh free popcorn going from noon till 10pm. Lots of resident ducks walking around are fun for the kids to feed, plenty of parking, and full time security driving around. This place is literally a 4-star hotel and a great place for family reunions or conferences!

Room and bathroom are small - adequate for one person.

Pros: Free breakfast, quality of breakfast
The best thing was the restaurant - full buffet with omelets made to order. Also, the bar area has a Route 66 theme and was enjoyable. The rooms are small, and the furnishings were plain. The staff was very helpful and courteous.

We will definitely come back.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
Where to start? The hotel was a little unusual in that it is on Federal property and you have to pass by a guard who is all business but the hotel was great. All the staff, from front desk to housekeeping and everyone in between was friendly and helpful. We were looking for a place with a table tennis (ping-pong) table and NCED got it right. They had not one, but two, Butterfly tables. The amenities are too numerous to list. The breakfast was awesome. Not a "bagel and banana" breakfast. It was a full breakfast including cook-to-order omelettes. The hotel is kid friendly.

Personal Experience

Pros: Free breakfast, Quiet
Upon arriving at the hotel, I was very impressed with the friendly service, the willingness to help get a cab, along with directions for the quickest route to get to our destination. The room was small, but nice. The breakfast however is delicious and worth returning for! I was very happy with our stay and will stay there again in the near future!! Boomer Sooner baby!!

Great place, not too far from OU.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: small rooms
Great place, not too far from OU. The only negative is that the rooms are on the small side. Not a problem for us, we were in town for s game and the room was fine for sleeping. Bed was comfortable. The included breakfast buffet was really good. We had our daughter join us for breakfast, so I asked the front desk how much it would be for her to join us. They gave me a extra voucher for free. We will definitely stay here again.

Nice property, very comfortable, good location

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
I was quite tickled by the fact that this hotel is owned by the United States Post Office. The outside of the hotel looks like a dormitory or office building, but inside everything is very pleasant. I found the front desk people to be very helpful. The room was small, but very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again!
