Ample parking for larger vehicles.The rate was 79.99 with tax. The receptionist was friendly and the lobby was clean and updated. The hallways show some wear... More

I was worried about staying at an econolodge, I was very wrong. This hotel is clean, well kept, and comfortable. I wish I could have taken the bed home. I was impressed by the great customer service however I had no problems with anything. Everything was better than I could have hoped for. Thanks for a great stay.

The rooms are small and dirty. Two guys on the crew kept getting bitten by something in their beds (does not appear to be bed bugs). One room had a black mold growing on the mattress cover and another had black mold growing on the pictures in the room. We left after two days, which was about 48 hours too... More

I had to stay overnight in natchitoches, and picked this econo lodge. I only needed a place to sleep so I didn't need much. From the second I walked in the door, until I stepped out of the door, the staff was very accommodating and delightful. The room was cool when I stepped in, which is a plus living in... More

Absolutely unbelievable ! Very good hotel and price. Nice people too. Well located , far from highway. Furniture is so new you're afraid to scratch it. In ten days this was the best. No restaurant but who cares when you have such a room.

The rooms on the 1st floor are all in horrible conditions. The mattresses were dented in the middle, rooms were smelly, and staff was unaccommodating. We were told that if we didn't like the conditions that we could leave and would be MAILED a refund. Needless to say housekeeping did not clean our room one night. We were literally scared... More

This motel is immediately off I-49 so it is very conveniently located. The wifi was readily available and the room was clean. However, the bed was not at all comfortable, way too soft. The hot breakfast was good.
