My wife and I were in Opelousas area for a wedding and the wedding party stayed at Evangeline Downs Hotel. The experience was very good from the courtesy of desk and house keeping staff to the cleanliness of the room. This is a typical chain type hotel but has been well managed and maintained which for the cost made this... More

On a business trip to Opelousas, I needed a room for one night. I needed a place that I could take my dog, as well. For that, this place was perfect. The room was a handicap room as I use a walker. I was surprised that I was on the 2nd floor instead of the first floor. I sure am... More

We stay here every time we visit family in Opelousas. The hotel is just average. There are a few times when kids and adults were running down the hall at all hours of the night. The casino is dull and only has slots. We have never had a problem with the cleanliness of the room. It seems like something is... More

Rude breakfast people jump in front of you when refilling things, the front desk manager leaves her desk and locks the front door...no sign to tell guests how to get back in. The pool and hot tub where dirty and green! Food in buffet is over priced and horrible. No ventilation in rooms and walls a paper thin...you hear everything... More

We rented this room to go sightseeing in Washington, LA, which was up the street by ten miles. The room got the job done. :) The beds were comfortable, bathroom was decent, and I have no real complaints overall. If you want a cheap place to stay for watching the races or sightseeing at the historic town of Washington, then... More

I have no complaints about this hotel. The rooms were well-appointed, the beds were comfortable, housekeeping was wonderful. Everything was clean, everyone on the staff I talked to was friendly and helpful. I would stay here again if I were back in Opelousas. Location-wise it's not within walking distance of anything other than the casino and race track.

The hotel is very clean and modern. The rooms are spacious. It is convenient to the smoky, poorly run casino next door. The hotel itself is a little chaotic. The night I was there it appeared there was an out of control teenage birthday party right next to the casino entrance, The children were spilling out into the hallway and... More
