We had a three night stay here while in town to attend my wife's class reunion and visit friends and family. The hotel is generally clean and neat, but it is showing it's age. Our room had some noticable stains on the carpet and foot rest, and some tile in the bathroom was in need of redoing and/or recaulking. The room was very adequate for our needs -- had a refrigerator and microwave, which always comes in handy. The hot breakfast buffet was hearty, if somewhat limited in its selections.
The hotel seems to be having something of an identiy crisis -- trying to be all things to all people. We paid what I considered to be the upper range of rates for a Quality Inn -- $85 or so for Friday and Saturday and about $100 for Sunday -- which I think implies a fairly high standard of "family oriented" lodging. They are trying to market their restuarant as a higher end (for LaPlace anyway) place to eat, and a bird sellers show was taking place in the meeting rooms the weekend we were there. Yet the parking lot also had a number of semis parked in it, and it appears that the operators of a nearby swamp tour are allowed to park their air boats in the parking lot every night. Not to sound snobish, but this did create a somewhat "rough neck" and uncomfortable atmosphere. I didn't want my wife going to the parking lot by herself.
Generally we're not too picky, and indeed we were okay staying here. But next time we might try the Hampton Inn down the road or the new Holiday Inn under construction just to be able to compare.
