Happened upon this hotel in the fog, was headed to another hotel. The room was recently renovated and done well. Breakfast was at the adjoining restaurant with fully stocked hot breakfast buffet. Great food for lunch and dinner also. Didn't have to ask for any extras during the trip. The room was well supplied with all toiletries and towels.

A comfortable, clean room with friendly staff. Bambi was fantastic help at check-in and check-out. Forrest Inn Restaurant provides a very nice complimentary breakfast buffet. Wifi was patchy. Nice pool and BBQ area.

Wonderful accommodations and friendly, helpful staff. Would highly recommend this hotel. We were upgraded to the jacuzzi suite and enjoyed the variety of offerings at the continental breakfast. Easy access from the Evangeline Throughway.

Everything from making reservation to check out was excellent. The whole experience was great and would recommend to anyone traveling in that area. The rooms clean, spacious, and the workers were most helpful and made you feel welcome.
