“Needs some maintenance”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

Stayed there 8/17/2012 through 8/19/2012.

Pros: Price was good and it's close to the casinos - a far better value than staying at the likes of the Horseshoe/Sams Town/El Dorado/etc. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was quite good too.

Cons: There are some painfully obvious maintenance issues, each of which the maids should be reporting to management rather than customers having to do the deed: Closet door off the tracks, making it very difficult to use. Bathtub fixtures leaked, and they obviously knew about this because the faucet was turned off so tight that I could hardly turn it on. Flush lever on the toilet was almost falling off, although it still worked. While we were there, another patron got stuck in one of the elevators...tried calling for help and it fell on deaf ears.

Wireless Internet had good signal and would connect to my devices on the 3rd floor where we stayed, but it wouldn't connect to anything on the Internet. It worked fine in the lobby though. So if you plan on using the Internet in your room, you'll probably be out of luck.

For my money, the Marriott TownPlace Suites next door is a far better value (stayed there before). It's a much nicer property, very well maintained and everything works there.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has recently been properly maintained. The 3rd and 4th floor rooms are quieter.

Room was nice and beds were very comfortable. Location was just fine with Texas Roadhouse next door (10% off for guests). We had a problem with our original room and the management immediately switched us to a different room. They were very helpful in giving us ideas and directions to nearby activities for our family. I would stay here again.

The hotel was clean, the people who work there were friendly and responsive, and everything worked! The bathrooms were spotless and well-provisioned. Highly recommend.

The free breakfast consisted of anything and everything; waffles, boiled eggs, yogurt, juices, scrambled eggs, muffins, and was served from 6-10 a.m. Plenty of coffee, chocolate or tea.

The hotel can be tough to find -- first, getting the right side street, and second, getting the right parking lot off said street. But once you're there, it's a Hampton. Nice rooms, good breakfast, attentive staff. The only faults were a back entrance near my room that wouldn't seem to open with my key card, and some jarring noises that made sleep a bit tricky -- one, a train that enjoyed blowing its horn a lot, and a bit of road noise from the highway.

Very friendly staff! Rooms were clean, a few cob webs but it is Louisiana in the summer - spiders are abundant. Nice breakfast, well stocked. Love the separated kitchen/dining. Quiet rooms. Will definitely be staying here next time we are in town.
*Tip - I believe presenting your room key at the Texas Roadhose next door will get you a 10% discount. We overheard an employee telling another guest....

have stayed here numerous times and tried it again on 7/27. very comfortable bed and great shower. pillows need to be replaced though.....

breakfast was good....very crowded.....

very convenient area of town if you like going to the casinos!

one thing they lack in the room are "plugs". guess 'cause it is an older property, that was before all the electronic items you bring -- iPad, iPod, laptop, cell phone, etc. Need to add more plugs to the rooms!!
