Been to Leesville twice and have stayed here both times. Three weeks the first time, 16 days this time. This is a bed and breakfast that has traditional style rooms in the main house and above the restaurant and there are a multitude of other types elsewhere. Several accommodations are away from the main 'campus'. My stay this time was... More

My wife and I have stayed here several times and enjoyed it. It's a great one night romantic stay, but I wouldn't stay more than that because there is not much else to do in Leesville/Ft. Polk area. It has a very nice restaurant, a nice bar, and nice rooms, so you never have to leave the property. We've stayed... More

Service is always great! HOWEVER, don't know if there's been a change in chefs, restaurant owners are taking their customers for granted, or some other excuse but recent meals at the Booker-Lewis have been disappointing. I travel through Leesville regularly and the hotel & restaurant was one of my favorite stops when in the area. But recent meals have been... More

Went for dinner, my girlfriend and I both ordered appetizers, steaks, dessert, and a bottle of wine. The service was GREAT, The environment was very clean with the exception of a large spider web by our table and numerous fruit flies bothering us throughout our meal. The food was the main reason for the low rating. The steaks were very... More

My wife and I enjoyed our stay on the intimate Booker-Lewis resort this week. Situated in the historic district near downtown Leesville, it is a group of refurbished old homes that exude small town charm. The property owners have carefully created a delightful get-away that is a much more enjoyable experience than the chain hotels located around town. In addition,... More

My second time staying at the Booker Lewis in the past 6 months and it was as great as the first time. I would never consider staying anywhere else when in this area. Try it, you will not be sorry. Inn Keepers room is my favorite.

I used to live in the neighborhood that this hotel/restaurant was in back before this home was refurbished. It used to be a condemned building but had beautiful potential. The owner has done a wonderful job refurbishing this place. Great romantic setting in a historic home. The meal here was outstanding! On par with meals I have had in top... More

All I can say is this restaurant is a life-saver oasis in the middle of a very hopeless military town. If not for this place to go often, I don't think I could make it with the terrible restaurants in Leesville, La. Not only is it a unique place to dine, it is a wonderful B & B to spend... More
