The Sleep Inn & Suite Medical Center is within eyesight of the LSU Hospital in Shreveport and is a perfect place to stay if you have a friend or family member in the hospital. My dad was in the hospital for cancer surgery and between all of our family and friends we booked 6 different rooms during his week long stay. Everyone was very pleased with the hotel, the price and the location.
The hotel appears nearly new, the rooms were very clean and nice. They weren't fancy but they weren't vanilla plain either. For some reason, they reminded me a little bit of a Courtyard Marriott room, maybe just a little smaller. The hotel does provide a continental breakfast and free newspapers which is nice.
It is a very easy and short walk to the hospital if you choose not to drive and I see no safety issues in the daylight. However, I would not advise it after dark, just because it is a big city and its very dark between the hotel and hospital. But during the daylight, we made trip after trip back and forth since ICU visiting hours are spread out through the day, and we never had any issues at all.
Also, the hotel is located less than a mile from the St. Vincent Mall, as well a several close by fast food options. I'm not sure what else to say about the hotel besides it was very affordable, the staff was friendly, it was very nice and it was very clean!
