Recent guest reviews

The place was nasty. I wouldnt even take a bath in that nasty tub. My son was walking around, and when i picked him up, his feet were BLACK, Not enough towels, mold, toilet shake, noisy, etc

The office staff was nice enough at check in. However, we walked into the room and right back out. The entire place looks old and run down. The non smoking room smelled like an ash tray. We went directly back to the office and got a refund

The carpet and walls were dirty, but it was an OK place. It was worth the price we paid for it.

The only reason why they did not get a perfect score was due to low water PSI which forced me to wash with a wet wag and toilet flushing issues, but besides that, the room was one of the best that I stayed in conditions, for I had stayed in worse for twice that amount. The beds were comfortable as well. Was barely there due to reason why I was in the city, so I did not try the TV nor any other thing that was made available to me for my stay.

it was very cheap and seem clean and secure i will be back again.

I should have kept driving. This place was run down and not well maintained. The sofa in the lobby is visibly falling apart and rooms aren't much better. Night auditor didn't even say two words to me---literally. He might not have even said one actually. Probably one of the worst hotels I have stayed in. Very disappointed.

Room was cool and comfy fairly quiet a/c was a lil loud but I was tired so it was not a factor

Horrible odor in our initial room. The carpet literally pulled up with my husband's shoe - it stuck to the bottom of his shoe. DISGUSTING! Now, I will say they gave us a different room, due to our complaint, but I would not recommend this place to anyone!

I just relax on my one night stay,everything was wonderful next time I visit I will go site seeng,my visit was all about relaxing.

Not a place for a family. More like a place for construction workers and bootie call facility. Furnishings from the 60's.

room clean hard to access motel drainage in sink/tub a problem overall, considering $, would stay there again

Hotel description and information given was very misleading. The hotel review/pictures that is advertised for this location vs. the actual appearance is completely opposite.

I only needed to stay at this hotel for a few hours to catch a very early flight, this is the most awful place to stay in Lafayette. The first non-smoking room we were given reeked of smoke and when I called the front desk to tell them about it, I was told to come back to the front desk - in the dark and through a parking lot filled with sketchy looking people to get a key to a new room. The new room smell just as bad! I was so tempted to just go to the airport and sleep there until my 6 AM flight! Then when we had to leave to go to the airport at 4:45 am, we had to wait for a staff member to come and inspect the room before we could get our deposit back! Please do not stay here! Dirty, unsafe environment. I was asked for money from one of the people in the parking lot who then got upset when I didn't give her any ! Do not stay here!

Our stay here was pleasant... with travelling the state for medical reason with my little one it can get difficult. We reserved a King room with a request of a crib. The room was hot most the night trying to cool down from AC being off but once it did... it was nice. Was told when I asked if the crib I requested was available... Check In Clerk said they only have one and its always out. Other than the crib issue.. I enjoyed my stay. Staff was great and answered all questions and directed me to where I needed to go. Would stay again and again but I now know bring the pack and play.

Was in town for a two day turn around, had no reservations, went online and found this place right by the where I was to be working. They do not have a waffle maker as advertised. Other then that , hard to beat the price !

Close to Interstate Friendly Staff.... Room Average....Pool wasn't clean but no big deal.....

I like staying her for the simple fact that its next to the freeway and you can get in and out quickly. The room is nothing spectacular. Room service was minimal, in fact when they got booked they ran out of towels. I booked a room for 3 adults (Double bed) with 2 infants and there was only 2 large towel and 2 wash clothes in the room. The water took a while to get hot I guess because of excessive use. Other than the location and price no real reason to stay here.

For about $50.00 a night., I didn't have the highest expectations. The interior was much better than the exterior. I was on a budget and this met my needs. If I return to Lafayette under the same circumstances I may use this Days Inn again. However, if I take someone along with me or I'm on better financial footing, I will look elsewhere.

The staff was nice and it was under interstate 10. There was restaurants close by. It would've been nice if the beds would've been a little bigger tough. It's an ok place to stay at.

Furniture dirty. Nothing I needed was accessible. I thought I was in the wrong place. The experience was not good at all
