When arriving, I was greeted at the front desk by "Jake" ... possibly one of the best hotel front desk employees in the Country! Based upon my initial impression I was looking forward to a great hotel experience. BUT ... such was not the case. The first room I was assigned strongly smelled like cigarette smoke (this is a non-smoking hotel and housekeeping should have removed the room from service until it could be deodorized). The second room's bathroom had not been cleaned. The third room was "OK" but not overly clean.
What truly amazed me was the paint in each room. The hotel had, apparently, used a painter to "touch up" the paint in the rooms. The paint didn't match! So each room had a hodge podge of paint colors on the walls!
To Jake's credit, he did his best to take care of the situation but this hotel has certainly gone downhill and housekeeping is an issue here.
You can find newer and better maintained hotel properties for the same room rate in Lafayette.
