hot tub not hot

One of the reasons we stayed here was for the pool area. The hot tub was cold first night, reported and the next morning still cool. The staff said they didn't know & that the tub was working.

Amazing Staff!

Took the wife for an overnight trip to the casinos on Memorial day weekend. The hotel was about 15 minutes from our casino which wasn't bad. The hotel itself was nothing spectacular, good sized room, clean and quiet. What made the hotel stand out to us was the staff..from the manager to the overnight desk clerk, they were all AWESOME! Everyone was so nice and helpful, I would definitely stay here again.

Be Patient

Took wayyy too long to checkin. At least 15 minutes. 2nd floor rooms reeked horribly of smoke despite that they were non-smoking rooms. After an hour of pleading, hotel staff reluctantly switched us to better smelling rooms on 1st floor. Bottom line; after arriving at hotel at 10:45PM, we finally got into suitable rooms around midnight. Not good, last thing we wanted after driving for hours. Breakfast was good and breakfast staff was excellent.

Best hotel in the country!

I stayed here for 2 days and the accommodations were 2nd to none. Everyone was so warm and beautiful from the front desk to housekeeping, especially housekeeping. The staff was very respectful and outstanding. Even the other guests were kind. The room was clean and everything worked. They answer calls on the first or second ring. The breakfast includes fresh baked cinnabons. There was no noise at all. My entire stay went smooth and easy. They are literally right off the highway and easy to find. I will definitely return and highly recommend this hotel.

My stay

I was in Houston TX and when I stay at that hotel the front desk member meet me held a conversation about his brother that is in the Army force also and I got my room for $ 80.. When I arrived in Lake Charles .. No one was in the front, so I called the hotel and after waiting for ten minus. After she got there I ask for a discount and she was very nasty and then reply even nastier stating that I was already getting a discount. So I keep my mouth shut for I knew that a questionnaire would come out and I'll be able to say something. Also when ask for my room .. I asked for a couch , now what I got was a chair with a foot placement .. Maybe I am wrong and it said chair but I can't reopen what I ask for Thank you for reading and this one bad stay will not stop me from coming back. V/r Tom McCleave

Quick trip stop

We came to Lake Charles just for a night. The location is not in a great neighborhood but the hotel itself seemed very safe. The room was clean but nothing fancy. The best aspect of the hotel was the very friendly staff and their willingness to help us!

Crisis hospital visit for friend

Staff friendliness checking in and out. late nite check in and early chk out did not give me the experience of staying or judging things as well. It met my needs and we will be staying here again in a week or two. This was our second visit here. The first visit was not as good over a few days. We always like Holiday Inn Express stays but they need to upgrade their breakfast bar.

They told us the IHOP was 3 miles down the road but you need to know to turn left at the redlight at the interstate and you cant see it from the hwy.
