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

The staff at the hotel was friendly and well-informed about the area. We enjoyed walking around Thibodaux after getting personal recommendations from the owner. Our room was clean and pleasant. We ate the free supper - prepared and served by Michael who was a gracious host. This is a good value and we would definitely recommend.

Entrance is pretty, parking is limited (IMO). Rooms are standard, we had trouble getting in our room with our keys multiple times. Shower was standard, shower handles seemed to be coming out of the wall. Our air conditioner was VERY loud, but I slept fine. The pool looked very nice, we didn't swim so I don't know. Breakfast was delicious,... More

This hotel has recently come under private ownership, and the new owner is very motivated to make the hotel a welcoming, clean and comfortable place. On weekdays they serve supper from 5 - 7 pm, and half of the time that was our dinner: free and delicious! Breakfast is included, and apart from a hot breakfast they also serve yoghurt,... More

We were in Thibodaux for business and we feel lucky to have found this property via a travel search engine. This is not your run of the mill motel. The staff is gracious, 24 hour coffee, free breakfast and dinner (Mon-Thurs. for dinner)!! Dinner is catered by a local restaurant and the food is great! Greg, the owner, was wonderful,... More
