A: In essence the answer is no, but the Oklahoma Administrative Code 710:65-19-143 does spell it out a little.

Hotels, motels, apartments, etc.

(a) The gross receipts from the furnishing of rooms, except meeting rooms, by a hotel, apartment-hotel, cottage camp, or lodging house open to the public is subject to sales tax without regard to the length of guest stay. Sales tax does not apply to rental agreements which are governed by the Oklahoma Residential Landlord and Tenant Act [41 O.S. §§101 et seq.].

So in a nutshell, unless the hotel has an agreement that would be more in line with a landlord/tenant then no exemption.
