In town for Funeral

Had to rooms. Second room you could smell smoke and it was non smoking. Smoke coming from bathroom vent. Was moved to another room on ground floor. No lock on window nor outside screen. Hotel put wood to keep window from opening. Probably would not stay there again.

Family Trip

Arrived a little too early for check-in but they let me get the room. After getting to the room, the sofa bed was broken but when reporting it they upgraded me to a Jacuzzi Room. Fantastic room. Breakfast was hot and ready. The staff was so accommodating and very polite and helpful.. I would definitely go here again.

Stay at hotel for work in area. The best thing about the room was the layout. I thought the room could have been cleaner. Maintenance of room needs improvement ex. Shower drain was clogged. The breakfast was great and it was served at a great time for me in the morning. Overall it was worth the money.

tournament baseball

Location was near downtown area of old casino on Shoreline. Location allowed easy movement to various ballparks. Breakfast was usual eggs and assorted breads but no waffles that kids want. Nice room with two areas - bedroom and sitting room. Only working ice machine was on main floor. Left room at 10 A M and returned at 8 P M to find that no housekeeping service to room - had to go to front desk to get clean towels Would stay for tournament again but would not stay if whole family on trip

nice place for multiple nights

The room could have been a bit cleaner, and some items needed repair. However the staff was very kind, spacious rooms, and complimentary hot breakfast with eggs and sausage. Internet was super fast too. Great value for what you get.

Mardi Gras

The desk clerk was very rude. She did not try to assist me when she told me both of my reservations had been cancelled, when I told her it was only one that was cancelled.

contraband festival stay

they hotel was in the perfect location for my needs. it is in walking distance to the lake Charles civic center and historic downtown lake Charles. the front desk clerk's personality can only be described as non-existent. the room itself was cute, reclining chair, pull our sofa and kitchen area separate from the sleeping area. that was a nice touch. however, the housekeeping staff was there BRIGHT AND EARLY and looked miffed when I told her she did not have to clean, but extra towels would be required. the bathroom light did not work without a warm-up light show of flickers and noises, and once on it only spotlighted the dead insects within the light fixture. the shower curtain rod was so angled, that the curtain would not stay closed for your entire shower. there is also no vent in the bathroom, so showers are hot and bathroom experiences were on the malodorous side. and the curtains did not stay closed on our lakeshore drive facing window, so we had to use the pants hangers and clip them closed when we were in the room, or run the risk of being the best show in town!
