We brought 11 Dixie League 13 year old baseball players from Virginia to play in the Dixie League World Series in Pineville. Wonderful staff, clean comfortable rooms! Everything was great, big lounge area. Perfect for our large size group. Had a great time

On a trip attempting to get from Florida to Texas during the flood of August 2016, we ended up in Alexandria late in the evening and found this hotel. The room was great - beds were comfortable, shower terrific. Loved everything about this hotel except there was no breakfast in the morning...not even coffee in the lobby!

We chose this hotel because it was within 2 blocks of Rapides General Hospital where my father was in ICU. Upon arrival at 11pm, the night manager (Toya) was super friendly and very helpful. In fact, throughout our stay here (4 nights), Toya always greeted us with a huge smile and always wanted to know if there was anything she... More

This hotel use to be a pretty happening place, but now it's run down, dirty and in a sketchy part of town. My girlfriends and I stayed here for 3 nights for a teaching conference held at the college. We arrived to a rude receptionist and a smelly dirty room. There are stains on the carpet and on the bedspread.... More
