This was a very nice room, clean and comfortable, recently updated. We only needed a one night stay and this was perfect. Easy to get to, close to downtown Bogalusa. The staff was friendly and helpful, even the other guests were pleasant. Overall a great value.

I stayed here on a cross country bicycle tour. The staff was friendly, and the room was adequate at this price point. Amenities included a coffee maker, microwave, fridge, TV with cable, desk, and wifi. It was on the south side, but we rode the extra 2 miles anyway.

Chose the Traveler's Rest in Bogalusa, LA after checking it out on Tripadvisor. Checked in on New Year's Eve, out on new year's day. If you're heading to Bogalusa and want to stay in town, rather than 20 miles away at the next closest hotels, you will do well to stay at Traveler's Rest. Bogalusa is not a big town,... More

This is a very nice, albeit basic, motel. It was clean, quiet, comfortable and everything worked. The room included a microwave and fridge, which was very helpful. The front desk staff was helpful and very friendly. We even got an email from the owners thanking us for staying with them! That was an unexpected surprise.

Over all this is a very nice motel. The front desk was friendly, the room was very clean & fairly updated & the price was quite reasonable. I did not know I would have a fridge & microwave, this was a welcome plus. We felt very safe in the area even though it does seem to be frequented by work... More

Room had many flies inside. Bathroom sink very dirty. Bedside lamp and clock plugged into broken extension cord so did not work. I came in about 9:30 - 10:00 pm Friday night by myself ( a female) and there were many men just hanging outside their rooms right near mine playing loud music, talking, etc. I felt very unsafe plus...

Very clean very nice place reasonable rate would stay again we stayed 4 days here . The only thing that would have made it better is if they had a breakfast. It was very quite and we enjoyed our stay very much.

HI! Thanks so much for the great review. We agree that a hot breakfast would make things almost perfect! Plans are being worked out to make this happen. In the mean time, we promise to keep our rates lower than those who do offer breakfast to make it worth the compromise. Please keep Traveler's Rest in mind for your next... More
