Lawton is a city of parks, sporting events, and proud residents who enjoy sharing their long and complex history with a steady stream of visitors. Once a reservation for Native Americans, Lawton became a city in 1901, growing alongside the ever-expanding Fort Sill. Travelers staying at our Lawton hotels will love the convenience of being so close to the bustling military base and the nightlife of the Comanche Nation Casino.
Families visiting Cameron University will find a variety of both national and locally owned restaurants near our Lawton accommodations. And guests looking to spend a busy day shopping at the Central Mall of Lawton can rest their feet in the lobby of our hotel. Near to Lawton are Lakes Lawtonka and Ellsworth, where rental jet skis and boats provide fun and excitement in the warmer seasons––and don’t forget your camera! Panoramic views of the Great Plains surrounding Lawton make excellent snapshots and memories.
Downtown Lawton is a burgeoning home to many local merchants, including several antique emporiums. The Museum of the Great Plains is open seven days a week; each room is filled to the brim with Comanche art, settlers’ artifacts, and even some modern exhibits guaranteed to keep kids of all ages entertained.
