This hotel stay was extremely pleasant and would definitely recommend this hotel. I staff was cordial and very professional. I definitely plan on making this hotel my primary hotel when I visit this area. The location of this hotel was right in the middle of my meeting area and lots of attraction around. Room was very clean and no complaints. Only wish I could have used the swimming pool and jacuzzi.

What a breakfast!

The best thing about this place is the staff and the continental breakfast. Served from 6-9am they had waffles, bagels, cereal, scrambled eggs, sausage, 2 juices, fresh fruit, coffee, tea, milk, sweet rolls, and more. This is way more than we are used to as a "continental" breakfast and we appreciated not having to go find a place to eat that early in the morning. Would like to have had the refrigerator and air conditioning turned on long before we arrived so room would not be so warm and we could put our drinks in a cold frig. All in all a very nice place to stay.

The outside was lovely around the pool.

I was in Alexandria visiting my mother who is in a long-term care facility. I did not stay in her home because I have the utility off. I think that the bathroom bathtub could be revamp the strips in the tub to keep a person from falling was half off and was not cleaned well. I did not complain to the staff, but I didn't feel comfortable taking a shower.

There are restaurants all around - some exceptional. Oriental Wok on Bolton Avenue around the corner and Cajun Landing across MacArthur Drive are both exceptional and so close and convenient.

Had noisy child next door so asked to change rooms. Front desk cleark was not help[ful. Said she couldn't change rooms unless there was something wrong with it. I said the hotel is basically empty on a Sun. nite. She said she woould have to call mangement to get a move approved. I said fine, call management. Switch was Okayed. New room was fine except for noisy A/C unit.

Baymont Inn, a nice motel

The inn was in a prime location, yet set way back from the busy road, so there was no road noise. It was spotless, 100% non-smoking, one cup at a time coffee, but they gave us plenty. I traveled with a colleague for a conference in Pineville. Her room had a little noise from plumbing. Mine was silent. I liked the ample open shelves under the bathroom sink and the genuine granite countertops. The bed was comfortable. The televisions were large modern LCD flat-screen. Breakfast was typical and served 6-9. We didn't use the pool, but it was very attractive with large fountain urns alongside. There were alarm clocks, but the wakeup service didn't work three out of four days. We didn't use the fitness center, but the equipment looked a bit crowded. The inn compared very favorably with similar places I have stayed. I wouldn't hesitate to return.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

There are practically no restaurants open on Mondays other than the usual chains. Carino's Italian was good. Cabo Rio's was reasonable and mostly good foodwise. Bistro on the Bayou was pricey, interesting food, but might not appeal to everyone...very spicy. I liked it and service was impeccable. There apparently is no live entertainment anywhere on weekdays.
