I attempted to leave a review of this hotel on the Choice Hotel website, but after several attempts entering the confirmation number and link to verify our stay, I gave up because it wouldn't respond. Our family stayed at this hotel the evening of July 30, 2014. We chose this location for a stop on our way home to Texas... More

My family stayed in a suite with bunk beds. It was handy as my kids don't like to share but would have loved two bathrooms like my friends suite there had. Hotel was clean and quiet. Breakfast was good.

We stayed here one night. We had a king bed two room suite. The room and bathroom were clean. Great pet friendly hotel. They had a Jacuzzi and indoor pool, which was too cold to get in. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The bed was a little firm but not terrible. Loved the pillows. They had a small... More

Stayed at this hotel for a family reunion function. Good central location, very friendly and helpful staff, and nice rooms, clean & comfortable. A free small breakfast available with a full breakfast available in the casino, which is walking distance and covered. Rates were high, but it was a holiday weekend and they were full. I recommend it as a... More

I was very happy with my stay at the Evangeline Downs Hotel. As a B-Connected member (Boyd Gaming, also owners of Delta Downs, where I've visited a number of times) who is over 50, I qualified for a very low weekday rate, so I had three nights at the low rate and one night at the higher weekend rate (they...

I a horseman and stay here often during racing season and enjoy my stay each time. The workers are very polite and attentive and the rooms are spacious and clean. The hotel is connected to the casino and racetrack which makes it very convenient.

We stayed here for three nights and used as a base to explore the area. Rooms are good, decor is quite dark, but ok. Bathroom was clean but the shower is very slippery so beware.

We usually stay at the Comfort Inn in this town but had a casino deal making the overall cost about the same. Upon arrival there were several people in the lobby as they could not be checked in until the rooms were "cleared", apparently a computer process that needed to be completed. Once we were finally checked in it was... More
