The hotel is an old shady and even scary looking place at night and in the day light you would wish you saw it at night only. The two star hotel rating isn't even close to what this place deserves. When I first arrived on Saturday night with the girlfriend she actually said "this place looks like it belongs on Cops or even Dexter," it wasn't even close to a safe feeling when pulling up at night. The neighborhood is awful and the hotel is located next to the Highway and near some serious bad roads with just an easy feeling. The room didn't look to bad at first, till I started seeing a few bugs crawling on the wall and on the floor and in the bathroom. T.v looked dirty and was never turned on because of it, safe didn't work (why would the one thing you want in a neighborhood like that work), there was trash in the drawers and dirt on the floor. There were stains that on the outside hallways that we didn't want to even know what it was and trash cans full right next to the rooms. We went out for breakfast the next day because the so called breakfast they had consisted of two dispensers of Kellogg's, a dirty coffee machine and questionable milk. For the price I will never again stay there, the extra $20-30 for a real hotel is worth it...especially if you value your life and don't want to spend half the night wondering about your vehicle and you. If you think this hotel deserves even close to a 2 star or above rating then you have never been to a real hotel or have any standards of what your money should get you. Do your self a favor and avoid this place t all costs.

I am so sorry that your stay was so terrible. I wish that you had contacted the Front Desk with your concerns. We would have gladly found you another room or another Hotel that would have met your requirements. The last thing I want is for my guests too feel unsafe or uncomfortable. Most of our guests are returning guests who have business at LSU Hospital or Willis Knighten

Hospital which are with in walking distance. Fedex and UPS which are with 1/4 mile stay with us. Bmac a oil service company has been staying with us continually for over a year. Yes we are an older property on the outside but we have gone through a complete renovation of every room within the last 2 years. We are currently upgrading our in room furniture, drapes and top off the bed. All of our bed linen is new;meeting the new standards set by Travelodge. Again I apologize for your stay. I have shared your concerns with our staff and I am sure that will learn from them.
