I have back problems, and the bed was the most comfortable I have slept on in a long time. I usually sleep on a Lazy Boy Chair and have done so for several years. For this reason alone I would stay here again the next time I am in the area.

Maybe we received the nasty room but wow. I realize this is an economy hotel, but that does not mean guests should be subjected to this filth. Strong urine smell and nasty stains everywhere. We pulled in off the fwy. very late at night and it was my mistake not to inspect the room prior to check in. Great rates.....no... More

We booked this hotel as part of a group meeting. The staff was very friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived. The front desk personnel gave us an excellent suggestion on a local restaurant, as well as directions to the historic district which we loved. The only issue we had was the room not being cleaned one of the... More

The hotel is on the outskirts of Natchitoches but that isn't a bother. The hotel offers good rates, friendly employees, better then usual Econolodge breakfast and is clean. Are things perfect? No but considering all the good things and the rate charged, the hotel is a winner for us.

This motel is clean, quiet, and has upgraded furnishings and linens. The employees were very courteous, and the breakfast was good. I don't think I have ever stayed at an Econo Lodge that served sausage biscuits (microwavable) rather than yogurt, but it just shows they pay attention to their clientele's tastes. The price was very reasonable.

I tend to stay at this hotel a lot because the price is good and the owners do a decent job of keeping the rooms updated. Mattresses and pillows seem new, with both firm and soft pillows (huge plus). The location is good (right off I-49 and a short drive to town), parking is safe, rooms clean (super important) and... More

We visit Natchitoches often and the only place we stay is at this property. The rooms are very nice and the staff is awesome. The beds are very comfortable and their breakfast is excellent. Good location close to down town. Gary G.
