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

If this is the best hotel in Opelousas, then don't stay in Opelousas. We should have kept driving to Lafayette to stay at the (cheaper priced) Hilton. $130 for the night! Are you kidding! I've stayed at better best westerns for half the price. I don't know who gave this hotel good ratings. We did not enjoy the hotel. The... More

The beds are very comfortable. Air conditioning and heater work well. Room was clean.(carpet was unraveling in where linoleum meets carpet) The young lady at check in was friendly the other workers were just OK. Breakfast was average. Housekeeping ladies were friendly and helpful. I guess I expected more of this hotel being its connected to the casino.

I have to say that my husband and I have stayed at this hotel several times. We have, in general, enjoyed our stay. We don't eat at the hotel, on the advice of an actual hotel employee, but the rooms are comfortable. This past weekend, was horrific. My husband checked in while I was at work. He waited over 1-1/2... More
