Days Inn Lafayette / Airport

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice hotel. Funny thing about the description: it says it is close to Ostrich Park. There is no Ostrich. I know because it was my family that gave the land to the city for a park that was never developed. Now it's a daiquiri place that's out of business. Google needs a correction. David Ostrich

Didn't like the hotel. To out dated and the TV channels were horrible and the reception for the the channels they had was horrible

We use this hotel when travelling into town to see a show at "The Station Live." Its literally about 4 miles away from the venue. Its average in value, comfort and cleanliness. The proximity to the highway doesn't allow much of a quiet morning, and our neighboring guests were very loud, but that is obviously circumstantial and shouldn't be held against the hotel. The nearby Mexican restaurant (the one literally 1 mile way) is delicious!

Room had a terrible odor. Needs attention from staff.

I reserved this room because of the good price and location, but it did not look like ANY of the pictures on its website. The curtains in the room were broken and "pinned" up with blood stains like someone had been in a fight or something. The housekeepers didn't speak English and couldn't understand when I said I didn't need anything. (They didn't have the door sign to display) They would walk in the room if you didn't answer (did while I slept and was getting dressed). Very aggravating to say "close the door" and they couldn't understand.

Room was clean but just plain trashed. The carpet had holes. The walls that had holes on them were just painted over so the room looked like it was polka dotted. The lamp shde was busted. One of the pictures in the room had the glass broken. Cold air poured in from the bottom where the door did not fit. Was scared to go outside to walk the dog. Just generally NOT a $50.00 a night room.

It worked out great for me since I was traveling solo. Room was clean when I arrived and was serviced while I was gone. It fit my budget and was close not far away from downtown Lafayette or the major interstates. It fit my budget so I chose it. I'd stay here again if I ever make my way back to the south again. It is nothing classy, but I didn't need all that jazz that comes with a triple digit a night figure. I just needed the bare necessities.

The employees at the front desk were extremely nice and very helpful. The room was comfortable. The one thing I didn't appreciate was every morning around 7:30 the cleaning staff would stand outside of my room and carry on a 30 minute conversation. The other thing is the hotel is apparently close to a train. You could hear it rumble as it passed but never woke me up at night, so it really didn't bother me. I would stay here again if ever in the area.

The hotel was decent if you are in a hurry and just need some place to stop, unfortunately I wasn't. The hotel had been updated, but the bathroom smelled liked they had remodled over pee pee. The room smelt like a urinal even though it looked clean which made me think that they renovated over the existing pee pee floors in the bathroom. I paid 45.00 a night and felt that it was over priced. For breakfast, I went to the lobby for apple juice and pushed the button on the machine and orange sludge came out of the other spout. So I then pushed the orange juice button and once again got orange sludge. I wouldn't stay there again unless I just had to stop or fall asleep while driving.

Hotel was just what I expected. Nothing fancy,comfortable and clean room.

Not bad for the price, room was fairly clean for an older motel.

Very poor internet connection, unable to work effectively on line. The window unit was not very effective, the room was uncomfortably warm even with the "HI Cool" turned all the way up.

I was visiting family members. This was my first stay in Lafayette. I will certainly stay at this hotel again.

The front desk staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean and the rate was extremely reasonable. Close to downtown Lafayette and Broussard.

Exactly what I needed. Easy hassle-free check in. Guy behind desk could see I was exhausted, just asked for ID, and waived all the red tape, gave me key, and I went straight to bed! Good beds. Good showers. Quiet. and Community Coffee too! Great price!!!! Loved it.

i just say to pay the extra money and go somewhere nicer;; the room was not what i seen online and basically i just didnt like it

The Days Inn Lafayette/Airport wasn't what I expected. I was very disappointed that there wasn't a hair dryer, iron/board. Of course this was after Hurrican Ike, and as to be expected the last occupants had stolen these items. Also the telephone didn't work and I had to reset the AC/Heater switch for it to work. The vent was also filthy, and the hot water was only enough for 1 person to shower.
