Stayed here for first time recently--its actually pretty convenient to the center of Baton Rouge even though it's across the river. Fairly new renovation and quiet. Had no real problems or complaints.

The rooms is beautiful! The housekeeper did a very good job cleaning my room and made sure that I had towels daily. The young lady at the front desk Ms. Delisha was very delightful! She found me a room and she was very nice. She made me feel welcome while I was there. When I would pass through the lobby... More

I was unfortunately lost and stumbled across this hotel. I was aggravated and very tired. When I entered the doors I was greeted with a warm smile and a helpful voice. The clerk name was Yolonda and she had no rooms available. She tried to help me find a hotel but there was not one in the area. A guest... More

Small sign and entrance road tricky to find at night when exiting the freeway. Knowing it is next to Raceway gas would help. Spacious clean room, sofa and king bed. Bed was comfortable, room quiet other than road noise. This was easily covered up by the fan of the heater/air conditioner. Flat screen TV was good, Wi-Fi was strong, personnel... More

We slid into this hotel at 8:00 at night after having some safety concerns about Baton Rouge, we chose this suburb. The hotel seems new, though not all the fixtures in the room were. The major concerns were that the door did not lock from the outside without the deadlock thrown, but the area seemed safe-enough, so we simply locked... More

l really like this hotel, but don't plan on sleeping in. I stayed in February 2013, when visiting family. Only booked for one night, and at 8 AM on the morning I am checking out housekeeping came beating on the door to clean the room. Returned to stay in March, and at checkin asked the front desk clerk to notify... More

It was a cold and stormy night when I pulled in to this oasis of warmth and light. There are other cheaper hotels in Port Allen but if you want good solid Wi-Fi and strong cellular signal this is the place for you. Breakfast was good and the adjacent filling station has an extensive convenience store. Next to the filling... More
