We were on our way from Dallas to NOLA. We decided to stop for a night in Alexandria. Did I love the town? OMG. Yes. Did I like this hotel? YES. Excellent staff and quite an acceptable breakfast spread, this hotel was sure a surprise. The town in itself is so nice and made me want to stay a little... More

I will not stay at this hotel again! The pool was dirty and the hot tub was nasty. They did not have signs posted that the hot tub was out of order, yet the management told us they were out. They should have posted signs. Also, the hotel was stingy about the towels. There was smoking on the nonsmoking floor.... More

Comfortable room, bed, towels. Good A/C. Room could've stood a little touch more thorough cleaning(not bad). A former Baymont Suites, the public areas are a bit worn. Probably needs to be updated pretty soon. Very good staff.

Stayed here last night with my boyfriend for his birthday weekend. We had stayed here a couple years ago when it was the baymont. It used to be amazing. We checked in on the 23rd and got to our room. We had no remote. The staff are VERY sweet and helpful. They were more than willing to help us. The... More

We stayed here two years ago when this was a Baymont Hotel. It is still a good place to spend the night when traveling. The breakfast was very good with many choices. Our sleep was uninterrupted. The rooms are a bit larger than most newer hotels. The stay was a good value. We were able to log-on to the wi-fi,... More

My co-workers and I were in the Alexandria and looking for a decent hotel room for not a lot of money. CheapHotels.com led us to Sai, a hotel unbeknownst to all of us, and after a quick reference on Trip Advisor, we decided to give a shot. There was some apprehension, as none of us had ever heard of this... More

I stayed here overnight prepping to pickup some horses and this place was extremely nice for the price point. They have room for larger vehicles in the front which was the selling point for me as I was in a 50' long rig. The check in process was quick and easy, I made the reservation online the day before.

There was a convention of retired teachers and the place was packed. As I tried to check in the employee kept complaining that she needed another person to help her. Not a good first impression. The room itself was nice. The beds were comfortable and the linens good. The furniture was quality. There was a fridge but no micro. Thre... More
