I looked for a hotel online before we got there. I have to say, it looks much better in photos. As soon as we pulled up, I changed my mind about staying. Even if it were just my husband and I staying, I still would not have stayed. It just looked dirty and ran down. The girl at the desk... More

Dirty old rocker chair and filthy small chair. Two thin towels. Wi fi unavailable for a day n half of our 2day stay. Breakfast minimal in a dirty foyer. Only... More

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

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
