The one way system in Shreveport is rather a challenge, so we found it hard to actually locate an hotel without the Internet. We tried a Holiday Inn but were not impressed so my husband popped across the road to this Best Western. We were given a whole suite at an incredible rate. Apart from being enormous, with a kitchen, sitting room and bedroom with huge king sized bed, our suite was clean and well decorated. There was a good range of amenities provided in the bathroom and it was super to drink our coffee from proper mugs!
When we checked in, the staff were really helpful and friendly. Breakfast in the morning was a hot buffet with a good range of food provided. The orange juice was particularly yummy, being a natural one. If the weather had been better, we would have made use of the attractive pool. The location is excellent, being within walking distance of a great bar! Also you are not too near the casinos, although the hotel has a free shuttle bus which will take you there if you can't resist that ambling urge.
Other reviewers commented on the noise and, while the hotel is right bang next to the freeway, we didn't find the traffic noise a problem. You could hear the trains hooting during the night but I rather like that sound.
