Teacher Conference

Just minutes away from Louisiana College where I was attending a teaching conference. Saff was nice, room was very clean, and I felt very safe. The rooms open into an inside hallway. Doors from the parking lot can only be opened with your keycard. Breakfast was nice and food was fresh.

Just Okeedokee??

Room smelled of smoke, never really got cold enough, and the bed slopped to the middle. It was just okay. I am glad that it was just one night. We were on a budget and exhausted.

Eat breakfast at local fast food joints to avoid long lines in lobby in the morning. The hotel breakfast was free but nothing special and crowded.

Airport La Quinta

This is a pretty decent hotel as far as standard La Quintas go. We didn't have any problems with noise. It was a little tricky to find in the dark after coming off a long flight, but nice and close to the airport and a better GPS or some directions would have made it a snap. The room was clean and the front desk staff quite pleasant. The non-carpeted floor (most was carpet) felt a little sticky, but could have been a side effect of humidity.

Not a 3-star

Hotel and amenities were no better than Comfort Inn in same locale, but the Comfort Inn is a 2-star and $30 a night cheaper. We only stayed here because a softball tournament claimed all the other hotels.

Overnite Stay

Had two rooms. One excellent with all amenities and one missing chair for desk, smoke alarm cover off with no battery, A/C controller did not work properly, no frig or microwave in it. Looks like a hit or miss when you order room. Too tired to go down and complain so don't know response from desk. Breakfast was good.

Inexpensive and Suitable for the area.

This hotel is in nice proximity to the airport. The staff was very freindly. A fair, free breakfast includes waffles, cereals, juices, coffe, yoghurts, breads/muffins; no meats, but food was satisfying. The rooms are cleaned daily, but not polished; (carpets stained but vacumed, bathrooms cleaned daily,Bathroom amenities were sparse, (basic little soap, tiny shampoo bottle)...towels replaced daily). Mini-fridge and microwave were very clean. Bed was suitable; semi-firm mattress, linens clean and changed daily, (or every 3 days at your request.) Basic cable tv with options to purchase playtime with nintendo 64 games, adequite air-conditioning, and there is a guest laundry, (coin slots for washer and dryer..buy soap or byo), (one washer, one dryer, both worked.) There were also several good vending machines (that worked!) on the ground floor and a couple on each floor with a decent selection of coke products and snacks. There are two computers on the ground floor with internet access (free to use), with printer. Both work well. There is a Cracker Barrel restaurant by the hotel, and the hotel is by easy acess to main highways. This is not a 5-star hotel to be sure, in that it could use fresh carpet, wallpaper, etc...but all things were in-tact...not tattered, just used looking. In short, it has a "lived-in" look, not dirty. However, it was a pleasant stay, and our bathroom was clean, no bedbugs, free breakfast, makes it a suitable choice for the area.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Although there are gas-station convenience stores by the hotel, a short drive to MacArthur Drive will afford the opportunity to shop grocery stores with better selection and prices.
