1.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Room smelled like smoke, even though I requested a non-smoking room. Hotel had a horrible odor. People LIVING there were loud at all hours of the night, slamming doors, yelling. Horrible experience.

The sheets were dirty in the first room,I was moved to a different room which the remote didnt work and the pillow cases were dingy

I booked this hotel while traveling through to New Orleans. Price was cheap and pictures were nice. Pulled up to hotel and it had a nice, big fountain running in the front. The water in pool was clean and the parking lot was full. SCRORE...we have a nice, cheap hotel for the night! Checked in and everything went flawlessly...SCORE! Parked and got our luggage out and proceeded up to our room on the inside 2nd floor. When those elevator doors opened we entered what seemed an entirely different hotel. Rundown and trashy! Walked down to our room and the aroma was aweful. The door next to ours had 2 opened comdom wrappers lying on the floor...Yikes! Once inside our room (hoping we would be safe) our phone was just the outer shell with the buttons lying inside of it...thank goodness for cellphones! Pillows were flat, flat, flat. Used a towel to help with that. Over all we were happy to be back on the road the next morning and my husband revoked my hotel picking privilages from the rest of our trip HAHA! My SCORE was actually a strike out and this very nice looking hotel turned out to be a wolf in sheep's clothing!

This Hotel stunk and was dirty, doors were falling off hinges, trash can near door with filth running down the side, hair and soap chunks still in bathtub. just plain-ole dirty. DO NOT Go there. [...]

was a hot sheet hotel.

This hotel is the worst in the area. All the room doors make loud noises when shut. Totally unprofessional service. Dirty laundromat, stairwells, hallways. Hotel sits in between two very nice 4 and 5 star hotels, and its sad that they have such neighbors. I would like to purchase and renovate that place to bring it up to scale. The only reason I stayed there was because there were no other vacancies. Should have left.

Room was okay but you get what you pay for.

Selected this hotel as part of an [...] package solely based on price. This hotel was certainly cheaper than other nearby chains but a case of "you get what you pay for". My stay was for 2 nights; hotel staff seemed friendly and helpful enough--they even moved me to another room so I could get better WiFi reception (from the Super8 no less)-but the room was smelly and dirty. The non-smoking room was overpowered by the surrounding smoking rooms, the towel(s) threadbare, the furniture was completely unglued so that when I tried to move the table and chair the legs fell off. Overall, the place had the look of a transients' hotel or perhaps a one-night-stand facility.Recommendation? Good price if you are not concerned about creature comforts and enjoyed pounding car stereo music until midnight.

First of all, the pictures you see online are NOTHING like what the hotel actually looks like. The lady at the front desk was friendly (that was the all good thing). The rooms were really small and smelled like smoke and we were in a non-smoking room. The hallways seemed very dark and concrete(no carpet)!!!!! The ceiling in the bathroom had mold on it(stayed on the second floor). Oh, one finally thing, the cont. breakfast was a joke. Theirs consisted of toast and donuts. Coffee was horrible with dried up powdered creamer, and the juices tasted as if it was watered down(the juices were in a machine not a pitcher. I would not wish for my worst enemy to stay there. Worst hotel experience EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

this place was dirty.no amenities shampoo,coffee,etc alarm going off at 4:15 not just mine but other rooms as well.Hookers,yes Hookers.sure glad I had my conceal permit.

Location was fine. The hotel was really dirty everywhere not just the room. We were to afraid to eat the free breakfast that was offered.

The pictures on the internet are very deceitful! The rooms were extremly small, VERY dirty! there were cigarette burns in the carpet and on the bathtub. All the fixtures were rusty, the bed smeeled and they had to use a stick to lock the window! There were very questionable people all around the hotel and walking through the halls, it was so noisy we couldn't sleep. The sink sprayed water everywhere when you turned it on. We didn't stay the second night it was too horrible!! This is not a nice place!

The TV did not work, the room was so dirty that we did not take our socks off to walk on the floor, the blanket was COVERED in cigarette burn holes even though the room was non smoking, out of all of the towels, only 1 bath towel and 1 hand towel did not have what looked to be pubic hair on it, and the hotel was so noisy due to the staff early in the morning letting the room doors slam on the latch while cleaning! ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE AND NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First off the room did not look like anything that was on there web site it was small and smelled and was not all that clean the bath room floor was sticky the air conditon was so so. Bed was not that bad if you were sleeping on the ground out side.... The people that worked there have no people skills at all. It was noise people in tand out of the people I dont think they were even staying there. Would of rather spent the night at a rest area then at this hotel......

I felt extremely unsafe at this hotel. A lot of questionable people were wondering around & we even saw someone crawl into a window!! Had a man not been with me I'd NEVER had stayed at this place. It looked like a prostitution or drug deals were happening. The hallways looked like some sort of [*]...just old, ugly tile & not up to date. The ONLY thing positive was that the bed was comfortable which was surprising. Parking is absolutely TERRIBLE & I refused to park in the back because it seemed your car would either be gone by morning or broken into. Just a very unsafe environment - or that was my feeling. I'd NEVER stay there again.

Just an awkward experience.

just a nasty place stay away old and durty !!!!

Outward appearance nice, located on Monkhouse Dr. off I-20. Immediately stepping onto elevator, the smell of cigarette smoke (numerous times) during stay. Noisy, unsure of in hallway or next door (but tolerable). Killed a roach, coming some where from the bed. Unkept (unclean)the wall behind bed. Pricing was reasonable. Previous stays at other facilities were better.

5204 Monkhouse Drive Shreveport LA
