“This was a great place for any short visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

This was a great place for any short visit. The location was out and away from busy traffic and loud noise. I highly recommend this for a short and relaxing stay for adult couples or single individuals.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

Room deodorizer spray is so strong it made me sneeze all night. I was worried about my car getting broken into because of all the sketchy people walking around the parking lot at night. I was woken up by a loud leaf blower outside my door in the morning. Which was so unnecessary because the guy was literally blowing nothing but air around for half an hour. Talk about annoying and bad for the environment. It's called get a broom.

the room was average, but the bathroom was a disaster. the shower was a dribble, and the toilet was not tightened to the floor. when you sat on the toilet, it felt like you were going to fall off. when i mentioned this to the manager, he just looked at me and never said a word.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

We spent the night here on the way to NOLA. The place is pretty clean and well maintained. The owners freaked us out a little. When we got to the hotel, unlike most places where you go through the door they had a bank like opening on the window to pass the id card and credit card. And the key was passed to us through the same slit. The door for the reception was locked during breakfast hours was locked and the owner opened it once we rang the bell, and locked the door once we left. Their actions completely spooked us and had us thinking if the we picked hood.
