The Chateau Hotel, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member

We were told that this was going to be a lovely boutique hotel and was just newly renovated. Nothing could be further from the truth. In actuality this was a crappy old La Quinta hotel that they purchased and quickly painted using the cheapest materials and labor they could find. The room was not very well cleaned and the furniture was beat up and in need of painting. The blinds were all broken and bent and the refrigerator looked like they had been using it for a good 20 years (smelled horrible). The staff seemed completely oblivious as to anything that was really going on. We were not even informed that we had an option of getting a hot breakfast, instead we ate stale, day old donuts and pastries. The real issue that was most concerning was the fact that their back door did not even lock. We were on the first floor and the closest room to the door. Anyone could’ve walked in off the street as the hotel has zero security. No matter how cheap this place is, don’t stay here and waste your money.

In other reviews I have commented on..the little things that demonstrate the quality of a business. Here is no different. The lid that falls off the juice pitcher. No microwave in the room. Sheet rock dust in the hall. Dead batteries in the TV remote. On the other hand, the AC was frosty, the staff friendly and attentive. The price was less then expected. A large room with a sofa. I thought I was getting a nicer place than the generic chains. It is unique, even charming. With a formerly luxurious now roadside motel kind of feel. Safe, clean and comfortable. Are you getting a middle indifferent vibe to my review? Then I have hit my goal. Yes, I would stay here again. Price was right for what you get and it's only 2 miles from the Cajun Dome

Found this listed on Airbnb so I thought it wouldn't be like standard hotel. I checked out 15 minutes after I checked in. Here's all that went wrong: *Sign was held with duct tape *Carpet on 3rd floor was FILTHY *Everything was dusty and furniture was so old *Phone in room was labeled LaQuinta *Room numbers were labeled as LaQuinta *Tv did not work *Room was musty *Cable wires across floor made me trip *Asked to switch rooms- keys never worked *Male desk clerk was defensive, interrupted me twice and unapologetic Bottom line- This hotel had very old and worn furniture and was not clean. I wish I would've checked the previous review prior to my arrival. I am pleased that Airbnb will provide me with a full refund for this horrible experience. Do yourself a favor if you are reading this and stay elsewhere- like a branded familiar hotel. The Chateau Hotel was just plain disgusting.

This hotel used to be a LaQuinta. We stayed there 3 or 4 times every year for a number of years. They recently became this new brand. When we checked in, our room had no ice bucket, no glasses, and no list of TV stations (a strange system with no guide). They eventually produced an ice bucket, but said then didn't have any info on the tv. The ice makers on the 1st and 2nd floors were broken, and we had to go to the 3rd floor for ice. They were painting up there and the fumes triggered my allergies. The rooms are on an interior hallway. There is an outside door at the end of the hall, at the opposite end from the front desk. For security, it was supposed to be locked. It never was, so anyone could have just walked in. A real disappointment.
