My partner and I, along with our traveling boxer dog spent one night at this hotel so we could check out the casinos in the area. Price was adequate but the overall experience was not worth it. After settling into the room, which smelled musky and did not look very clean, we decided to head out and leave our pup... More

From the young man at the desk to the cleanliness of the room it was a great experience. The property was well lite and secure. Would recommend to anyone from families to business travlers. The only thing I could find wrong was no channel guide for tv so not too shabby.

I made reservations online not knowing what to expect when we arrived there. "I must say the room was clean, the bathroom was clean with fresh towles, no bugs or mosquitoes in the room." This trip was not just for my husband and I, my mother as well. I'm happy that she enjoyed herself on her first vacation, and I'm... More

The hotel is old and in need of renovation. Check in was easy and courteous. The room had a king size bed, small sofa, microwave and small fridge, but no coffee maker. The bed and pillows were old and somewhat lumpy. They really should skip the "breakfast". It was terrible. White bread, some sort of sweet roll, coffee, a couple... More

Ok, we needed a place for the night, I went on Travelocity web site and saw positive reviews for this hotel. Unsure what I can say positive. In the parking lot, there were a group of men drinking beer in front of the steps leading to our room. The room smelled horrible, the chair in the room had holes all... More

The Econolodge at Lake Charles wasn't a bad place to stay. It does need updated. The rooms do not have flat screens. The bathrooms weren't the greatest, not to say they weren't clean, but just well used. They allowed pets, and had smoking rooms, which is why we stayed. The breakfast didn't have a lot of options but was still... More

By far this the best hotel for the value in Lake Charles. You get lots of amenties. Like free wifi, continental breakfast, pool, etc, etc. The owners are so nice and friendly. They make you feel at home. If you should have any needs they take care of it quickly. You can't beat the the weekly rate especially for all... More
