We were impressed with the hotel. Even though it is an older hotel it is neat and clean. The staff is great, especially Barbara who was kind, pleasant and helpful. We have put this hotel on our list of places to stop again.

Wow! Not sure where to start. This MOTEL is a cluster of building surrounded by a steel fence (sounds safe right?) but they leave the gate wide open. Anybody can drive right in and park or walk around. We were given a ground floor room in the B building as they said it was all that was available. While trying... More

Staff was extremely nice and helpful since this is a very old "hotel". It is more like barracks but it was worth what you paid and very spacious. Not much worked but the staff was helpful in moving us and making things right. Room was clean and cold and not much noise so we liked that. Normal hotel breakfast and... More

I had an excellent stay at Richmond Suites, the staff was very friendly and cordial. They had my meeting room setup exactly as I requested it. My room was nice and clean, very comfortable. The breakfast alone would keep me coming back.

The staff was friendly and professional. The rooms were very spacious, clean, and the bed was very comfortable. Plenty of exercise equipment and the pool was available. Not the best area of town, though.

My stay was especially pleasant. I arrived late and was greeted with the same cheerfulness received with early morning arrivals. My accommodations were that of a 5 star hotel. the abeyance is truly Southern Louisiana with the wonderful pine and oak trees. It is a walk down memory lane. I will stay again at the Richmond Suites Hotel. The location... More
