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

We picked this place because it is fairly close to the plantations and because of the reviews on Tripadvisor. Also, a daytrip into New Orleans can be accomplished from here if you don't mind the 1 hour drive or if you want to avoid the much more pricey accomodations in the Big Easy. Our room looked very clean, but clearly... More
