We rolled into Lake Charles around midnight, exhausted and desperate for a shower. After finding a couple other places full, we decided to just settle for the next one we saw. This was a huge mistake.
While we could deal with the disgusting, broken shower head, the dirty toilet, the dirt and dust and filth all around the room, the broken safety latch, the last guest`s shirt having been left in the bathroom, and the fact that the bottoms of our feet turned black after walking barefoot through the room once - the friendly little roach that popped up in the bathroom right when we were about to turn in for the night was the last straw. We packed up our stuff and ran out of there after less than two hours. The front desk clerk would only offer a partial refund, which we did not find acceptable.
I highly urge anyone considering this place to do what we ended up doing, and sleep in your car at a rest stop. You will be far more comfortable and clean that way.
