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

I've been having to stay in Lake Charles for a month now and have settled in at Richmond Suites only to find nothing less of a fantastic experience. I've enjoyed all aspects, staff, rooms, location, amenities and PRICE! Very reasonable for the experience they give!

We had a wonderful stay. A very clean suite with a walk out to the pool. Hotel grounds were well maintained. Hotel staff were excellent and attentive, special care given to us as a military family. Breakfast buffet was a bonus.

It is apparent the reviews here are old! This hotel complex looks brand new, location is perfect right off the highway with a beautiful pool complete with the natural sound barrier of all the tall Louisiana trees (you can't hear any traffic noise)! We had a great stay here slept soundly on new mattresses in a very nice and spacious... More

The room I was in was amazing! Very large living room and great bathroom - two separate areas with separate shower area. Kitchen in the room also. For the price paid it was way more than expected. The lobby is very inviting and the staff very friendly. Nice pool area outside for kids to play and a sports court also.... More

Dirty, moldy rooms. Lamps without light bulbs and the lights that had bulbs only worked if you jiggled the switch several times. The toilet ran constantly and leaked, and we were given an unrequested 4am wake up call both mornings. Never again will I stay at this place!

We stayed at the richmond inn and suites with a large group. Only stayed here because every where else was booked. The complex is very old and needs to be dozed down. Nothing is up to date and lots is broken! Dirty and run down. Front desk staff was nice.

When we first got there, the ac in the room we were in didn't work. Josh at the front desk was very promp and courteous when getting us a new and better room. Great customer service. Privacy was good too. It was like we were the only people there.

Just got back from spending the week there. Room was clean but no blow dryer as promised in the advertisement - asked 3 times for one & was told (1) maintenance was on their way,(2) they ran out (3) someone was going out to get a new one. No dryer ever showed up. Evidence of housekeeping was there by tossing... More
