“Not really a value in the end”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

Extremely basic room with an average bed, cheap linens and covers, two small pillows. There is a fridge and a stove top but you have to pay extra for dishes, posts and pans or a coffee maker, so it's basically useless. We were there two weeks and had no linen or towel changes. We would have had to pay extra for that too. The towels were barely there, worn thing and tiny.
I only got hot water for my bath about 50% of the time. The internet was hit or miss as well.
There was a light shining right in the window that made it hard to sleep and there were babies crying and people banging around and stomping all night the entire two weeks we were there.
Although their policy says no bbqing on site, there were a group of shirtless men bbqing, partying and drinking in the parking lot and a bbq pit hidden behind the dumpster.
It was impossible to get a hold of the staff. We were delayed in checking out because no one was at the desk and no one would answer the phone. This is a problem because the key cards occasionally quit working and there was no one to help us get back in the hotel.
They don't tell you when you make the reservation but the desk is only open until 5 so if you are getting there later, they just give your room away.
When we left, they took out of our deposit because he left trash in the room.... in the trash can. Yeah....
It was largely a negative experience. I will say on the good side, the location is great and the room was clean. It's cheap, but you get what you pay for. Be prepared to rough it.

I stayed at value place 08-06-11 thru 09-31-11 while my apartment was renovating. Very cheap. Staff was overall okay. You have to pay for everything extra. Everything worked in the room. Never had any problems. Never seen any bugs or anything. I recommend this hotel. Great for the price..

We reserved a room at this hotel online and called to confirm. They canceled our room the day we were supposed to arrive. The explanation was "overbooked". Then later that day, some friends checked and there were 6 rooms available. The worst business practices ever. The prices can't be counted on and they nickle and dime you for everything--charging extra for internet access, towel service, etc.

I was staying in this hotel until my apartment was ready. When I checked into the room I noticed spots on the sheets. I just had them changed and thought nothing of it. I few days later the spots were back on the sheets. It was blood! My blood from being eaten by bed bugs in my sleep!!! I was bitten from head to toe. I had never encountered bed bugs before. I told the front desk. They told me that I would have to pack my things and check out immediately like I was the one that brought them there! Basically they kicked me out with no place to go and handed me a roll of quarters so I could go launder my cloths. No refund for my stay. All I got was a "sorry about this". Do not stay at this hotel!!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
At This LocationValue Place Bossier City, LA is conveniently located just off I-20 and Old Minden Rd. The northwest part of the state is a little different than the rest of Louisiana. It’s a mixture of the wide-open Texas spirit and the spicy Cajun attitude. "Louisiana’s Other Side" is a term we use to describe our part of the state and our unique combination of Louisiana Cajun culture and East Texas cowboy heritage. Our unique blend of cultures has a tendency to sneak up and surprise you. Festivals are our trademark, and we hold them from the time the first warm breeze dances across our faces to the time cool air convinces us it's time to go indoors. Bossier City's festivals draw hundreds of thousands, from this state and others, all ready to experience our family-friendly fun with loads of good food, days of dancing, art and a whole lot more. Take a trip down to the Red River, and get ready for good shopping at the Louisiana Boardwalk and exciting gaming at our casinos. Eat at the Louisiana Boardwalk or the casinos – or at any of the other restaurants near the river – and you'll get a feast of riverfront fun. Whether it's an afternoon of riverfront shopping, gaming and eating or a visit to our famous Barksdale Air Show, you get a chance to engage your fun-loving side because we turn history into an experience.Our list of fun spots includes: Horseshoe Hotel & Casino, Sam’s Town Hotel & Casino, Diamond Jack’s Casino Resort, Eldorado Casino Resort, Boomtown Casino, and Harrah’s Louisiana Downs - a horse track and casino. These Shreveport-Bossier City casinos alone are reason enough to spend the night on "Louisiana's Other Side." Whether you’re working, vacationing or just passing through Bossier City, Value Place Bossier City is the ideal place to stay while you’re in this unique part of the country.Value Place is a much better place Before you decide to stay at Value Place, we want you to be prepared—prepared for a better guest experience. What that means to us is a truly affordable, incredibly clean, safer, simple, flexible experience. And this is more than just a nice idea—it’s the Value Place promise. So how do we do it? By combining all the convenience of a hotel and all the essentials of an apartment. We’re a hybrid—and that makes us better than a hotel, an apartment or any other short-term or long-term housing accommodations you’ll find. Think about it—no extras padded into our price, no hidden fees. No lease to sign, no utilities to set up. And that’s just for starters. Find out how we’re different and what to expect when you’re here. What to expect when you arrive After a brief room tour, you’ll register, pay for the week plus a refundable $100 deposit, and agree to our house rules—which basically come down to common-sense policies that protect the privacy and security of each and every guest. Value Place is a family-friendly place, and children 17 and under stay free. To maintain a consistent guest experience at all of our properties we do have a No Pet Policy, except for service animals. Then we’ll show you to your guest room. It’s that easy. What to expect in your room Although Value Place offers several room choices, the essential features stay the same. You can always count on a simple but fully furnished studio with a kitchen that includes a full size refrigerator and freezer, a microwave, a two-burner stovetop and plenty of cabinet space. You’ll also find two drinking cups, a trash bag, a roll of bathroom tissue and a bar of soap to get you started—because at Value Place, we figure you’d rather shop on your own terms than pay for extras you may not need. If you do want to take advantage of the additional amenities and services we offer—from kitchen cookware to high-speed Internet—they’re available anytime for your convenience for a minimal fee. There’s only one thing guests never seem to be completely prepared for—how astonishingly clean our rooms are. What to expect in and around our building All Value Place properties are newly constructed from the ground up and electronically locked 24/7. That means no one can access our interior-corridor entrances without a valid key card. (No exterior room doors here like at most discount hotels or extended stay motels.) Featuring at least eight cameras and a very well lit parking lot, we keep your safety in and out of the building in mind. All public areas are cleaned daily—including our well-lit parking lot. Beyond our commitment to cleanliness and safety, we also offer vending machines and an onsite laundry room for your convenience. What to expect from our team You won’t find a friendlier team anywhere. Our helpful staff—from Studio Attendants to the Property Manager—will make sure your guest experience is a positive one, whether you need something for your room or directions to the closest car repair shop. At Value Place, you can expect courteous treatment from professionals who are committed to maintaining guest privacy and peace of mind. In fact, some team members live onsite to uphold our rigorous cleaning and safety standards. What to expect at every Value Place When it comes to Value Place, you don’t have to compete with anyone for that perfect apartment or hunt for the best hotel deal in town—we’re always the better choice. At your typical extended stay motel, discount hotel or other short-term housing solution, guests have to give up something that really matters. Not here. At Value Place you will always receive an affordable price in a Cleaner, Safer, Simpler, and Flexible property. We’re about living better through better value. And that makes us the smarter choice. Best of all? We promise a consistently positive guest experience at every Value Place you visit. Explore Value Place locations or make a reservation today. ... more   less
