This is a fantastic, family run establishment. We spent a wonderful 3 weeks there and enjoyed the fantastic hospitality of the hosts along with the sparkling blue pool. We enjoyed the day trips we made to surrounding attractions. Particular thanks to all the staff who were so fantastic, but particularly Arthur and Josephine.

Clean rooms and breakfast/dinner included served by friendly staff. Thanks to all the staff who made our stay relaxing and enjoyable! Just a short drive(about 50 miles from NOLA airport) so within reasonable distance to all the sights and sounds of New Orleans. Much more reasonable rates too!

Carmel inn was a great place to stay. We stayed one night while exploring the area. The room was pleasant and clean and the beds were very comfortable. Close to swamp tours and plantation tours. Staff very friendly and helpful. Free wi-fi and breakfast. Would definitely stay there again if in the area.

We stayed here recently to kick off a tour along the Mississippi. Thibodaux is a quiet, quaint town, which we really appreciated. The hotel was older than anticipated with rooms entered from the outside. The staff were great and the room was clean and equipped. There was a guy parked outside our room, sleeping, with the car running and AC... More

I stayed here when visiting family. You will not find another place like this for the value they offer! Breakfast and dinner served by great hosts. The rooms are clean and the staff is amazing. Jaime and Kellie who was working the front desk were very helpful and polite. I will definitely stay here again.

This hotel definitely puts the customer first. Their customer service is beyond expectation and the attention to all details of the property and the customers visit is excellent. The breakfast and dinner offerings are spot on. This eliminates the necessity of trying to locate eateries in the area. Their staff is very professional and friendly, Jamie, Kellie, Peggy, Arthur, Greg,... More
