nice room, I didn't expect the maid to go clean when I went out, thank you!

Clean but I was not comfortable about the area around the hotel or the clientele at the time I was there

A family value like it used to be. Everything was clean, everything worked, and the staff was courteous.

This hotel is in an undesirable location. There were quite a few individuals and groups loitering around the premises. I didn't exactly feel the safest. The pictures on the website are also misleading. Clever cropping and filtering of pictures makes a big difference. Due to my own error, I booked the wrong room. Thankfully, there was hardly anyone staying there, so there were plenty of available rooms for me to trade into. I was up charged for the room, which I understand, but given the emptiness of the hotel (which is actually a motel), it would have been a nice gesture to waive the up charge. The attitude of the clerk during the procedure was the worst part, and I was told I needed to pay cash and not credit for the charge. I asked for a late checkout (12 instead of 11), and was told that would be another up charge. The AC was off when I got to my room, so I turned it on before heading out to dinner and running errands. The temp only dropped from 82 to 76 by the time I got into bed hours later. I felt as if I was being nickeled and dimed the entire time. I would not stay here again, and I would tell anyone who asked to avoid it. I have stayed in hotels for $30/night that were leagues better than this one.

The room was ok. We made it to town a little early and called to ask about early check in and it wasn't available. They told us we needed to check in after the original check in time. When we finally checked in the front desk clerk was kind of rude. He kept asking me how many people total was in the room, which was stated on reservation. The floor was wet in the bathroom and I slipped (at nearly 4pm). The bathroom wall had built up grime on it. The water drained slow so while showering you were standing in water. The people above us seemed to be stomping. You could here every move. We didn't encounter any staff other than checking in & out. The price was ok. The kids didn't complain and everything worked so it was ok.

I stay at this hotel every time I come to town! Nice, clean, friendly!

The room was clean and comfortable. Only a few towels available.

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.

For the most part, it was OK for the price. The room was clean and had everything we needed.....

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

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.

DESK CLERK WAS RUDE, CHARGED $25.00 PER ROOM AS A SECURITY DEPOSIT, ROOMS WERE NOT CLEAN, T.V. DIDN'T OPERATE PROPERLY, A NUMBER OF APPARENT DRUG TYPES PRESENT, THIS MAY BE A HOT SHEET MOTEL, FEEL AS I HAVE BED BUGS, NEVER MAKE THIS MISTAKE AGAIN.

the breakfast is not good, but for free which is not mentioned when you booked it. So it's a surprise! the Staff is friendly, but the price is not OK at all. Super 8 may be a better choice.

Nothing out of the ordinary. Wide screen t.v. would have been nice.

It was clean and roomy. Just remember your credit card. Even though I prepaid room with [...], I still had to put down a deposit. But overall, I had a nice stay.

Had everything I needed in the room. Fridge is great. I had a two king beds for a moderated price. Close to downtown.

I stayed in my room but the location was close to many other business (i.e. food and shopping). It was located in a good location.

Nice, Clean, easy to find hotel. One should beware that the image of he suite shown on the advertisement, is not the same (no hot tub). Additionally there was no business center, door access is outside and it was a very small "dining area". Not bad for the price, however in the same parking lot was a Baymont Inn & Suites, which I believe is the same price. I might try them next time.

I was on the way to the NAR convention in New Orleans and arrived at 11:30 at night. I was surprised to see the night clerk ready for me with key in hand. Staff was nice.
