this hotel look nothing like the pictures on the website. Holes in the wall, some places in the ceiling look like it was about to fall in, lumpy bed. It was so many things wrong with this room definitely needs to be updated. I definitely will not stay here again I feel as the price was too much.

When we got into our room we were VERY disappointed. -not only with the size of the room, but also with the cleanliness... the base boards around the room were very gross, our bed had stains all over it, hair on...

The front desk said she didn't have anything on the bottom floor. But, we walked the grounds & found a few rooms downstairs. People who can climb stairs was getting the... More

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

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
