After four weeks of hotels it was heaven to find Buchanan Lofts. Our 'loft' was huge, very stylishly decorated and well equipped and with laundry facilities, which is a big bonus. Leah, the manager, gave us a number of great tips on what to see and where to eat. This was a quiet and relaxing couple of nights and I... More

This was great, traveling with another couple, so this loft was a perfect stop. We stayed 2 nights. Very clean and spacious lofts. Location is great and easy access. Owner gave us suggestions of things to do or see , was great. These lofts are fully equipped.

The lofts are amazing. Clean & supplied with everything you need to make you feel like you are home. The staff is super friendly & knowledgeable about the area. The lofts are in downtown Lafayette & within walking distance to everything. I can't say enough good things about Buchanan Lofts.

I stayed here with 3 others and there was certainly enough space for us all. Concrete loft apartment made homey with loads of interesting art work and furniture. Huge open plan space in the living room and kitchen. Great facilities. Located in downtown Lafayette with access to Tsunami restaurant below (amazing for sushi). Could criticize a little noise from outside... More

Dirty towel in bathroom, everything had a dorm room "clean" quality, no soap in bath and no coffee in kitchen, furniture worn and marked. Wi-fi didn't work ( I got signal thru my personal hotspot). Absent staff which is ok if place is properly managed but this was not. (We have stayed in a similar U-loft places elsewhere that were... More

I give this place 5 stars if you are visiting for leisure. Great location; walking distance to art galleries, restaurants and bars. Awesome set up. Very eclectic. Love it! I do not recommend this place for business. No wifi, off site parking, doesn't cater to those with special needs (all stairs, no elevator which was a constant pain for transporting... More

First off our arrival experience was less than perfect. When I arrived at the location the parking situation is confusing and inconvenient. You have to park in a temporary spot then go in and wait for someone to come meet you. Then get a card with your slot number and walk back to the parking lot to move your vehicle... More

We enjoyed our recent stay at the Buchanan Lofts. The space was large, airy, well-lit, and all things considered -- comfortable. This is the second time I've stayed here -- the first time was about two years ago -- and something just felt off. For starts, the wall in the stairway was significantly scuffed and worn. A desk at the... More

Beginning with the rude parking attendant, my experience with the Lofts was less than perfect. Myself along with other alumni of the local university decided to spend our stay at the Lofts after viewing photos of the property. We were also hooked by how close it was in proximity to the night life downtown as well as a favorite restaurant... More

First the good. You can tell the owners put allot of work into the interior construction and design. Rooms are very large and shiek. Like having your own apartment downtown. Good location to downtown bars and nightlife. Now the bad. * Noise at night is VERY loud. If your are planning on staying out till the bars close and then... More
