Odor

The room was clean but the restroom had a strong odor of urine. I had to keep restroom door closed in order to tolerate the rest of the room.

In town for Graduation

Hotel was near everything that we needed. Close to Cajun Dome for graduation. Staff was friendly..Could improve on Continental breakfast we did not use this service due to no selection.

Our stay was uneventful but served our purposes. Wish the hotel offered longer breakfast hours.

A Place to lay your head

Stayed one night in Lafayette just to break the trip and do some washing. That was enough. The walls were paper thin and our neighbours were enthusiastic to say the least. Quite a laugh – we could have called a running commentary and held up score cards at the end but, unlike them, restrained ourselves. Lots of outside noise with people arriving and leaving throughout the night.

Great Stay

I almost did not book this hotel due to some other reviews that were less than stellar. Put your worries aside, this place was top notch. The rooms were clean, the atmosphere was family oriented, and the staff was friendly and helpful. My only complaint would be the $25 deposit, but hey, it wasn't a big deal.
