I stayed here for a night on business. I did not book the hotel and probably would not have chosen this location due to location. With that said, hotel was clean, staff was extremely nice! There was a strong smell that I didn't like that stuck on my clothes. It wasn't a rotten smell or anything it was I guess... More

Very nice property. What's really special is the personnel that go out of their way. Good eggs for breakfast without that nasty cheese product most HI properties add. Greeted we it a good bag and smile. Glad we stayed.

Convenient, right off I-10. It's south of I-10, and the GPS wants to take you north on MLK. It's quiet, but only easily accessible of MLK Northbound. You can get to it from the SB direction, but only with either a U-turn or entry from the backside. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was standard buffet fare. Room was... More

Short stop in Lake Charles while travelling back to Atlanta. The hotel is very new, but the staff was excellent and seemed experienced. We felt welcome from the time we walked in to the time we left the next morning.

We chose Holiday Inn Express because we think their breakfasts are a little fresher and have more variety than other like hotels. And we were right! There are at least two to three hot items ever day. Plus it had the variety of fruit, breads, coffee and juices. We went to Lake Charles to do a little gambling but didn't... More

My reservation was for the weekend before (my mistake), they were very understanding having not charged me for the no-show and honoring the rate of the earlier reservation. The room was very nice, the breakfast good and the staff helpful. Will stay here again

Created by a very nice front desk lady, was given a nice quiet room away from the freeway, and told about a nearby cajun restaurant which we ate at with a great menu. Just far enough away from the train tracks, that we could barely hear the train horn as they passed by, but still a great room for restful... More

We stayed here on a Tuesday evening and checked out on Wednesday. The hotel was nice and clean, the staff (when in person) was very helpful and we had no complaints during our stay. The issue came the next week when we were charged twice on our debit card for the hotel stay. After five days of back and forth... More

Stopped in town to go the casinos, but didn't want to pay the price for a casino room. We had the next best thing. Walking into the lobby you are met with a grand stair case and chandler fit for a princess---beautifully done. I could definitely see a bride taking pictures there. Once you get off exit (going east), you... More

We were greeted by a young lady named Petula. What a treat!! She was so amazingly hospitable and helpful! The hotel itself looks as if it has recently undergone a remodel; therefore everything was clean and newer. Room clean, lobby nice, breakfast to Holiday Inn standards. Everything I expect and plan for from a HIX. In the morning we received... More
