Great place to stay when visiting Laura & Whitney Plantations. The town is lovely and the people super friendly. Just what you hope to have when visiting a small town. The culinary school no longer prepares meals but the food was decent. We are not picky and visited for the purpose of going to the plantations. If you love peace... More

Carmel Inn & Suites is a joy to find. The Inn faces St. Mary Highway and is very close to Nicholls State University. It has a staff that want to help. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast is good. They also serve a light dinner, however, I already had dinner plans, If you have a student at Nicholls State... More

Kind and courteous staff, comfortable rooms, swimming pool and practical location in Thibodaux however the dinner and breakfast that are included are pretty horrible. We like to think that we are somewhat easy and open with food (eat almost anything!) but this was just inedible... Plus the hours are ridiculous, for the over 60s only; dinner from 4:30pm to 7pm????!... More

Saw great reviews on Tripadvisor. All were good so made reservation to stay 5 nights while exploring Cajun Country. Loved it! Fantastic, congenial and informative staff. Great location great wi-fi. Clean. Breakfast good. Some nites free dinner (we didn't partake) great pricing. Book direct for better discounts. Top of the line.

We stayed for four nights with our family and enjoyed it tremendously. Clean rooms, generous free breakfasts and dinners, nice pool, and a great location. Our room faced the pool, so we had very little road noise. It was very quiet. The free internet connection was the best quality we have ever had in a motel/hotel. The best part, of... More
