This was my second extended stay and really enjoyed both. The hospitality was excellent. The rooms were clean. The price included complimentary morning and evening meals.Great safe location. We stayed during the summer and winter while visiting our daughter and family who recently moved to Thibodaux.

This is basically your normal modern not-so-fancy motel, although it’s built on the grounds of an old Carmelite nunnery and they have incorporated a few architectural items and are eager to tell you about the history. It’s on a fairly quiet street, with huge live oaks, but a short walk to downtown restaurants. The chain motels (Hampton etc.) are across... More

From the moment of arrival, hospitality was outstanding. Peggy, front desk is such a heartfelt personality. We had no reservation decided to stay here by what we read on trip advisor. Met the owners they really showed the "southern hospitality." Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was hot, which is important. As well was the Complimentary Supper. Both were very... More

I cannot say enough about how wonderful the staff of the hotel were during our recent stay. The woman at the desk was so kind and so welcoming. It felt like we were entering her home.

As others have mentioned, this is an older hotel but the owners take pride in their property. We were in one of the newly renovated rooms. Peggy made check-in easy and quick. We were pleasantly surprised when we got to our room. The new furniture, including a comfortable recliner, made us feel right at home. Josephine and Barbara ensured that... More

Hidden jewel! Older hotel, well kept, friendly and helpful staff. Free hot breakfast and dinner were a nice surprise. Free breakfast is daily but free dinner is only during weekdays (Monday thru Thursday). Located midway between Baton Rouge and New Orleans. Nice drive to both places.

This was one of the best "chance finds" on our trip. Quiet, comfortable, and very friendly. It turned out we had chosen a good location for learning more about the Acadian culture by deciding to stop in Thibodaux. At Carmel Inn we were encouraged to take advantage of the complimentary evening meal and were amazed at the quality of the... More

This is a great place. It is off on a side road and a little older property. BUT they have done a very nice job of keeping it up. The staff could not have been better trained. The breakfast is tops but routine if you plan on a long stay. They presently are offering a nice simple week day evening... More
