“Nice Hotel in Lake Charles, between Airport and Down Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

The experience was good, and I would recommend this hotel to others staying in Lake Charles.

Room: The room was pleasantly furnished, and I felt more relaxed when I opened the door. You can tell this hotel was fairly new, and they are making their best effort to provide their guests with a clean, comfortable room. My friend, who arrived earlier, did report that the room smelled faintly of paint when he arrived, and so he turned on the fan. I did not notice the smell by the time I arrived. The room had two double beds, a small refrigerator, microwave and cooktop, a flat-screen TV (maybe 40”), two sinks (one was like a small kitchen sink, and the other was a bathroom sink), a desk and office chair, and a microwave. The bathroom did seem a little cramped, but there was a wall-mounted shelving unit adjacent to the shower (and above the toilet), which was more convenient than I’ve seen in most hotels (save luxury hotels). The bathroom was also clean. The beds were made with two layers of sheets under a blanket, which was under a third sheet. This had the effect of looking like the bed had a comforter, although it did not. This was not an issue, given the time of year, and that the HVAC unit worked well in the room.

Staff: The staff was very helpful, allowing my friend to check into the room early.

Lobby: The lobby is clean and neat. It is small, and includes the breakfast area, which is also small. I would imagine that if the hotel were full, not all the guests could be in the lobby at once.
Breakfast: I can’t speak to the breakfast, as we went elsewhere to eat. The coffee was good.

Pool: the pool area is orderly and inviting. It was open, but, at 65 degrees air temperature, just a little too cold for me to get in. The pool is not heated.

Parking: the driveway, parking lot, and individual spaces are narrow. The parking lot is smooth with no pot holes.

Location: The hotel is immediately off of I-210. Very close to the highway. It is about a 10 minute drive down to the historic district of Lake Charles, and the waterfront park. There is not much in the immediate vicinity of the hotel. I felt safe there.

Excellent value only $59.99. Was really clean and the owner very friendly.We just happened upon this place but it was one of the better deals we had over the 18 days of travelling through Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi.!! The owner also directed us to a restaurant for the best ever shrimp and gumbo!!

This is a new hotel so take advantage. Best value in Lake Charles. Use your GPS because it is a little odd how you get there. The rooms are right by the parking lot. It is quiet even on a Saturday night.

Recently spent two nights at this hotel in Lake Charles so that my college daughter who commutes to McNeese in Lake Charles could remain in town for a couple of evening study sessions before two big tests. I booked online and was only able to reserve a smoking room which was graciously changed to a non-smoking room when I registered. The room was clean and comfortable. The desk area in the room with wifi provided an excellent study area for my daughter. Our bed was comfortable and we experienced a good night's rest. The breakfast area was well maintained with waffles, pastries, cereal, juice, and coffee. i would definitely stay at this hotel again and would recommend it to anyone needing an affordable room with easy access to all areas of Lake Charles.

Room Tip: Would recommend a room located on the west side of hotel

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel it is easy access to I-210. Room still has the new smell. The beds were very comfortable and it is very quiet so we had a good night sleep. The front desk staff were great. We couldn't have asked for any better service. It is very clean around the hotel. The parking lot is well lighted so I felt very safe. This would be a good place for an extended stay with all the amenities they offer.
