Other than having an ironing-board without the iron in the room, towels were limited, it wasn't a bad stay! Right off the inter-state and easy access to everything we needed to do. Staff was very courteous which was a change!

We were in town for a family vacation and were pleased with the value we received on the room. The location of the hotel was very good and we were able to easily reach the places we traveled to West Monroe to see. Even though it was close to the highway the noise level was slim to none. I especially... More

This was my first visit to this motel and only my second to an Americas Best and I was well pleased. Would definitely stay here again.

The rooms are small, the front desk clerk was not very friendly, one of the washcloths had black hair on it, the tv's need to be updated and the free wifi ( which actually they boast free high speed internet) was non existent. Will never stay at another of their hotels and will not recommend to anyone.

I had a reservation, but we got there a little later in the evening, so got an upstairs room, which is hard for me to go up stairs with my arthritic knees. Rooms were clean, but mattresses were very hard. The wate was nasty, yellowish in color, tub slippery and slow to drain. Commode didn't want to flush properly either.... More

I was SO disappointed. I booked for first weekend in may because they had a pool. Well- no pool- even though they assured us the pool would be ready. There's another hotel near by. Better value/nice rooms but no pool. Should have stayed there. Service was ok. Room was TINY! Funny smell in rooms. Not newly renovated. VERY disappointing. Not... More

The rooms were just okay. This is an old hotel. The front desk was very friendly. Breakfast was a joke, nothing worth eating. I was thankful for the coffee. We only spent one night, which I was thankful for. The room was very small.
