“Pretty nice hotel near I-20”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

The hotel is just off I-20 in a quiet area, The people were very nice and the rooms which were recently renovated were clean and well appointed. The lobby/ breakfast area was very appealing. Breakfast was great. I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: If you like Chinese food, one exit east on I-20 is Pecanland Mall Dr. Drive on the service road past...

2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

I stayed at this property several years ago and remember it being better. There is renovation going on but that is not an excuse for not servicing my room, being in a smoke free room that had been smoked in, and generally just not feeling clean. I paid $96 per night for a $60 experience. If you are like me and frequent Choice Hotels properties then go on down the interstate to West Monroe and try that Comfort Suites.

I was going to get pecans in MLU and decided to stay overnight here. Smoke free rooms are a plus since a lot of Truckers stay here. Service very good but food is limited to carry-out pizza and Chinese. The Pecanland Mall is nearby and cab is $10 each way. Had the coffee and danish in the morning and left with a USA Today. MLU Airport has been updated with Jetways and a cool Louisiana Zydeco bar so enjoy 2 hrs. before your flight.

This hotel is what I expected in a Comfort Suites. The lobby was recently renovated and is beautiful. Some rooms are also being updated.

Rooms were clean and featured all the basic amenities. Close to the interstate.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

I haven’t stayed in Monroe for about 2 ½ years but prior to that, I had at least a dozen visits. This was always the premiere location to stay in Monroe. But the location is starting to show signs that the owner is starting to let it go. (I.E: Don’t get your suitcase wheels caught on the old loose carpet in the elevator…which is only there to cover the loose floor-tiles. AC is long past due for cleaning, etc). Breakfast selection has been cut way back to the basic Choice selections instead of a lot of little extras they used to have. The staff is still very friendly tho. But one issue..ok, its petty, but when you travel a lot, these are the little things that stand out. The first time I stayed I noticed the snack and soda machines were low. OK, so….except the next time, same thing…and again. It was turning into the joke of each stay. I looked back on the review of my 4th visit. Same thing. The machines are always ¾ empty. Doesn’t this location understand profit center? Oh well…it was time for a change.
