“Nice hotel and stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

We stayed 1 night. The desk clerk was friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. The only negative is that we could hear guests in the room above us walking around. The framing between the rooms squeaked with every step and it was loud enough to be annoying. We would stay here again, only if we can guarantee a room on the top floor.

Room Tip: Ask for room on top floor.

I have stayed at this property a few times. Friendly staff, great HI Express Breakfast, dependable Internet, and a clean comfortable room. There is no other option for me when in Natchitoches. Looking forward to many happy returns.

Stayed here recently, arriving around ten pm. Was very tired, so appreciated swift, courteous check-in. Lovely, clean facility. Very comfortable room, nice breakfast room. Good location right off the interstate, but heard no interstate noise! A bonus for such a convenient location.

This property is another well run and well maintained Holiday Inn Express.
The rooms are fresh and clean and the breakfast bar has a good variety. The food is hot, taste good and is well presented.
Nice pool too.

The hotel staff was great. The free breakfasts offered good food really thoughtfully prepared, with something for everyone, regardless of dietary restrictions. The best coffee ever!! The room was spacious, lots of outlets, TWO comfortable chairs AND a desk chair. It was quiet and we slept well. HOWEVER...
the light bulbs were so dim that I could not see my facial flaws in any of the mirrors. I guess I should have been happy. Even with all the lights on, the bathroom mirror was of no use. Anyway, the dimness drove me nuts. The only other complaint was the perfumed fabric softener used in the bedding. At first I thought it was the scent of a previous guest, but the fresh towels had the same scent day after day. Not everyone likes the hotel's choice of perfume and we certainly did not. Yuck! A little tricky to get to once you see the hotel's sign. You don't just drive in a straight line once you turn in to the cluster of hotels. Would I stay there again? Yes!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from the highway. Ours was on third floor facing parking lot.

Right off the highway it is conveniently located. Newly constructed and pleasantly appointed (for a modest rate chain that is). Good beds, great shower with excellent water pressure and a wide shower head. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice. The staff is friendly and competent! What more can one look for in an overnight stay on the way to the next stop?

We've stayed here quite a few times over the last couple of years &, after not being able to get a room here last time & having to settle for one of the other chains located nearby, Holiday Inn Express is by far the best. First time we stayed here was for a large family wedding & we were accommodated in everyway. The rooms here are very nice, clean, large, & quite. The pool is suitable for kids as well as adults who want to hang out around the pool. Their breakfast is VERY good with eggs, sausage, white gravy, biscuits, & many other hot/cold items.
