The lofts are amazing. Clean & supplied with everything you need to make you feel like you are home. The staff is super friendly & knowledgeable about the area. The lofts are in downtown Lafayette & within walking distance to everything. I can't say enough good things about Buchanan Lofts.

I stayed here with 3 others and there was certainly enough space for us all. Concrete loft apartment made homey with loads of interesting art work and furniture. Huge open plan space in the living room and kitchen. Great facilities. Located in downtown Lafayette with access to Tsunami restaurant below (amazing for sushi). Could criticize a little noise from outside... More

Dirty towel in bathroom, everything had a dorm room "clean" quality, no soap in bath and no coffee in kitchen, furniture worn and marked. Wi-fi didn't work ( I got signal thru my personal hotspot). Absent staff which is ok if place is properly managed but this was not. (We have stayed in a similar U-loft places elsewhere that were... More

I give this place 5 stars if you are visiting for leisure. Great location; walking distance to art galleries, restaurants and bars. Awesome set up. Very eclectic. Love it! I do not recommend this place for business. No wifi, off site parking, doesn't cater to those with special needs (all stairs, no elevator which was a constant pain for transporting... More

First off our arrival experience was less than perfect. When I arrived at the location the parking situation is confusing and inconvenient. You have to park in a temporary spot then go in and wait for someone to come meet you. Then get a card with your slot number and walk back to the parking lot to move your vehicle... More

We enjoyed our recent stay at the Buchanan Lofts. The space was large, airy, well-lit, and all things considered -- comfortable. This is the second time I've stayed here -- the first time was about two years ago -- and something just felt off. For starts, the wall in the stairway was significantly scuffed and worn. A desk at the... More

Beginning with the rude parking attendant, my experience with the Lofts was less than perfect. Myself along with other alumni of the local university decided to spend our stay at the Lofts after viewing photos of the property. We were also hooked by how close it was in proximity to the night life downtown as well as a favorite restaurant... More

First the good. You can tell the owners put allot of work into the interior construction and design. Rooms are very large and shiek. Like having your own apartment downtown. Good location to downtown bars and nightlife. Now the bad. * Noise at night is VERY loud. If your are planning on staying out till the bars close and then... More

Great accomidations for someone who travels a lot and needs a break from the motel chains. Spacious, tastefully decorated, located downtown within walking distance from resturants & clubs. But what really makes this place special is the owner, Leigh, & her staff. They go out of their way to make you always feel welcome & appericiated. Highly recommend Buchanan Lofts!

I have very mixed feelings about the Buchanan Lofts. My wife and I stayed in loft 7 for a three day weekend. When we arrived, we loved the design and layout of the loft as well as the building’s central location. Previously when I’ve stayed in Lafayette, the only choices have been chain hotels so we were excited to have... More

Thanks for the review Erik. You’re right. During one of the worst downpours in memory, we had a flash flood warning, there were street closures, power outages and miserable conditions all around. As a result, you did have a leak in your loft and you shouldn’t have. But I take issue with just about everything else you wrote. I didn’t... More
