Nice staff .Clean rooms and bathrooms, and efficient check in also very close to everything in lake charles that you would want to go see and do. Little pricey for the area but worth it for the cleanliness and location.

Not what I expect from an HIE property.
Not located in a good area. Most of the gas stations and stores in the area have bars on windows and are run down. It was convenient to I-210, which was why I chose it. Not a great selection of places to eat in the immediate area.

Not much that sets this hotel apart from others of its kind. Average breakfast, an exercise room, highway access, etc. The pool looked nice but I did not have time to use it. The desk staff were friendly and prompt to answer questions.
