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

My friends and i stayed here two nights in June, in two lofts. It was good having complete privacy, but with that came a total lack of any services - kind of like staying at home. Not for everyone on the road. We appreciated being able to cook a meal here, after eating out on the road every day. While... More

thanks for the review suzanne. we would love to address your comments: our lofts are totally like staying at home, our website even states it. if you read thru the website and look at the photos you can see it's more of an apartment and less like a holiday inn express. we provide salt and pepper + coffee filters in...

Buchanan Lofts is a superb place to stay. Very comfortable, clean, stylish, quiet but close to a main street. Also innkeeper Michele Ezell is VERY nice, serviceminded and accomodating. She gave us great tips and advice on places to eat and see in New Orleans and in northern Florida, which we were going after visiting Lafayette. Book this place when... More

Four people total stayed in one of their "smallest" lofts on a Saturday night on Mardi Gras weekend. It still had a large bed that slept two, and a fold-down couch that did sleep two tuckered-out party goers, but probably would have fit just one better. The room was stylish, had everything that we needed, and even had a nice... More

The "loft keeper" was helpful, the room HUGE! We didn't use the full kitchen but it's available, we had plenty to do but we enjoyed being able to relax/spread out in a large room, nice music, loved the windows & open feel. Able to walk to things to do. Only complaint was the stairs, clearly not accessible, we had a... More

The first time was for a wedding and food was eated and a chair was broken(may or may not have been from us) and we were charged almsot 200 dollars for this. The second time was for a friends birthday... More

We had to stay for a month due to a family tragedy in our home. We were wooed by the innkeeper as you can imagine the income received from leasing 2 lofts for an entire month. Housekeeping was not as promised, rat traps under the beds, linens not changed, not enough staff, charged for things that weren't used, and we... More

Stayed here while attending a friends wedding in Lafayette. The lofts were well furnished, spacious, very cute and pet friendly. We stayed in Loft 3 which comfortably accommodated 2 adults, 2 kids and a dog. The owner was onsite to check us in and was very friendly and offered great restaurant recommendations. The lofts are situated just off the main... More

We enjoyed our stay in Lafayette at Buchanan Lofts. The room was beautifully appointed and was well done. The room was very clean and had nice beds with comfortable sheets and quilts. It was easy to park across the street and to walk to lots of the sites we wanted to see. The biggest issue we had is that there... More
