As wyandham. Has the name in hotel business we rented it for 2 nights. Was cleans room left the room around 7.40 to gamble at the casino . Got back at 11.15 pm and our begs were open and water chips and snacks in another beg . Found roaches crawling everywhere got inside both begs. My wife and grand daughter took all our belonging and left. Could not stand the roaches. Next day went back and after complaining to the lady in front desk gave me refund of 80% for One day.

It was close to everything but you get what you pay for

The first room was very dirty. The toilet need, shower and carpet needed to be cleaned.

Smelled awful. Walked in and had an ashtray with cigarette butts in it.

It was nice, convenient to Lake Charles. The lobby is small and not much room for breakfast.

The positive is that our rooms were clean and the parking lot was well lit.

The room was very comfortable. We had a good nights rest, ate from the continental breakfast before getting on the road again.

Hotel was ok for a one night stay for a place to sleep. When we pulled into the parking lot the police were escorting an intoxicated man off the property.

Wasnt bad but could Def had been better. Cleanliness was main concern for us and lock on door was broken.

Not great; not terrible. More than likely, will not stay again.

Enjoyed the experience and the stay. The hotel was at good location

My friend and I booked the hotel for two nights and were rudely awoke our first morning there by drilling and hammering in the room next to ours. When we called the front desk the owner didn't seem to care. The light in our bathroom did not work and it smelled very strongly of urine. We switched rooms and the other wasn't much better. I them got home and unpacked and realized my fake diamond ring was missing from my luggage. Good luck with that one guys! I don't recommend staying here at all. A gutter would probably be better.

My room was very clean and comfortable, I would stay again.

Convenient, Good price. Nice pool. Enjoyed our stay.

Although nothing special, I have no complaints about my stay. Decent price decent room.

We were looking for a very quick stop-over in Lake Charles and were only planning to sleep there for a few hours before heading home. You get what you pay for, and we knew not to expect too much. Cons: The hotel is old and has all exterior entry doors (and therefore there are cameras everywhere), and the bathroom had a very strong curry smell coming from the vents. The breakfast area for the included breakfast (which we didn't eat) was two small dinette tables in front of the lobby desk, and it looked like there were plastic containers for muffins, etc. The pillows are terrible -- they are so fluffy and "tall" -- but that may be a personal preference. Pros: The room and bathroom were surprisingly clean.There was one hair in a bedsheet, but that wasn't a big deal. The room had a coffee pot, which many upper-end hotels are skipping out on these days. The front desk woman was very nice. And they've updated the rooms with flat-screen TVs.

This hotel is in a bad location. There were people yelling outside all night. We had our two grandkids with us and was afraid to walk around outside. When we started to check out on Sunday morning the office was not open so there was no breakfast. I the price it was not worth it.

The Staff are friendly. But A Cockroach The size of my thumb fell from the ceiling right before I went to bed. Needless to say going to sleep was not easy.

Carpet was very dirty and made my socks and feet black. Very convenient place to stay, and on the edge of the downtown.

Everything at the hotel was as advertised and was a good value for the money, however, the jelly at the breakfast bar was either very old or had frozen during the recent cold weather because it was as hard as a rock.
