Laid over one night at Candlewood Suites here after a late start driving Houston to Pensacola. Hotel was great value, easy to find off I-12 and close to lots of mall like shopping options close by.
Hotel also has just down the street a Zea Rotisserie & Grill Restaurant. Spouse and I left the hotel at 9:30 PM expecting to dine at McD or one of the other fast food outlets nearby, and happened to see lots of vehicles in the Zea parking lot. Tried it, and found half of Slidell's smart set was still eating and drinking. Also learned Zea is well established all around the NOLA area. Address is 173 Northshore Blvd, Slidell, LA 70460
(985) 273-0500, about a half mile south of the Candlewood. Try it - You'll love it.
