“Good Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Room was nice and clean. I appreciated the microwave and nice sized refrigerator. Plenty of convenient parking. Indoor / outdoor pool was nice too. Good location. Convenient to the airport, and had many choices for eating and miscellaneous stores. I would stay here again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Goods things first, we had a king with a sofa bed and had a larger than normal room that included a wet bar. Rooms looked nice and loved that they had a microwave and nice sized refrigerator. Plenty of convenient parking, and staff were all very friendly from the front desk, housekeeping, food service, etc. Indoor / outdoor pool was nice too. Thinks that I didn't like were that the beds weren't comfortable, elevators were in bad shape and were slow, and stairwell had a horrible smell of a urinal.Overall I rate this hotel as just OK, not good, but not bad.

Room Tip: Ask about availability of a larger room.

Hotel was in a great location on my way to new Orleans, easy to find near great eating places.
Staff was very Friendly, the overall building could use a make over , but the room was very clean and fresh feeling. Security door to the back tower was not working , anyone could walk right in with out a Key. So made sure I kept all locks secured at all times.

Window treatments were falling. Elevators were hot. Just not up to Holiday Inn standards. The pool water was a weird color. Desk staff was slow. Close to the airport and not too far from casinos. Orange juice from previous guest was in fridge.

I really loved this place. Some background first. My father had to have a triple bypass and I had opted to stay with relatives for the first couple of days, but that in itself became exhausting to me. I just needed a place to go be by myself with my 7 year old son to de-stress. We originally received a courtesy room from Willis Knighton North, but upon getting to the room I realized that there was no bath or shower and the wing was very noisy. Having never used the name your own price website, I decided to give it a whirl. They had express deals and one of them was a $40 3 star hotel near the airport so I booked it with no hesitation. Upon arriving, I couldn't have been more pleased. The location is off of I-20, but it is actually in a more secluded wooded area (i.e. no interstate/airport noise). The place is old, yes, but it is huge and has a very resort like feel to it. Check in was a breeze and everyone there was very nice. The hotel has been reasonably updated and the beds and pillows were very comfy. Everything in our room was immaculate and the air conditioner was awesome. We were never hot, as some previous reviewers have stated. In fact, my son commented that he was freezing when we awoke. The pool area was amazing and did not reek of chlorine as from previous posts. There is a huge indoor pool with a hot tub in an atrium that connects via a 10' outlet to a huge outside pool with a hot tub. There was more than ample patio space for lots of people to hang out. I also got a chance to catch up on my laundry while we were there. The next morning my son wanted to go to the gym and it was a cool set up with all the basics and a flat screen tv to watch while you work out. We loved it so much that two days later we stayed again. Same experience, but this time I got to enjoy the bar before heading to the pool. We slept in both days so we didn't get a chance to try the breakfast, but you have the option of hanging the card on your door before midnight if you want room service for breakfast. There was a continental breakfast with choices of cereal, fruits, yogurt, toast, etc. and a more meaty option. They were about $10 - $12 (not including 19% gratuity) depending on which you wanted. They had a restaurant, and kids under 12 eat free with an adult meal, but again, we didn't get a chance to go since we slept in. I loved this place, and have every intention of making this our go to place for my son's travel ball team next spring, regardless of how far away the baseball fields are from the hotel. It had everything we could have needed.

Room Tip: We had rooms on the 2nd and 3rd floor the nights we were there and had no problems.

Recently had to stay here for work. The location was close to everything I needed. Also I was working nights and sleeping during the day and I did not get disturbed. I did not use the pool or other facilities so I can not comment, but the room was nice. I will stay here again.

I have stayed at this hotel several times for work and for 2 weeks strait back in 2011. It has gone down hill in the last several years. It does appear they have tried to remodel the rooms but the AC units need updated. When I checked in they had my name wrong and told me it was because priority club had it wrong, I had stayed at 2 other Holiday Inns the same week and it was not wrong at them. That was worked out and not a big deal but the overall hotel is just run down. The chlorine was so strong in the lobby/bar area that it burnt my eyes while trying to set at the bar. My company sends a lot of people to Shreveport and they used to always stay here but I have heard from several of them that they won't be staying here again either because of how run down it's getting. I will probably stay at Holiday Inn again but not this one.
