I booked 3 rooms 2 weeks prior to our arrival. We stayed here as we arrived on boat and this accommodates large boats etc. When we went to our room it had not been cleaned and had trash, blowup mattresses and other debris scattered throughout. Went down to lobby and discussed to find out no other rooms are available and...

We enjoyed our stay. We had 2 rooms and because we were traveling with pets our options were limited. The rooms were clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The one complaint. The wifi went down on night 2. We would stay here again.

The best part of this hotel is the fact that it is in the middle of everything. It is down the street from everything. When my friend and I were there they were doing renovations and the morning hire hadn't reserved our room like requested, so we got a big discount. It isn't a big fancy place,but the mini fridge...

Call the manager and ask for a better deal than booking sites. I got a rate of $59.99 per night! We love this place. It dates from 1988 and has been very well maintained. A tranquil petite bayou named 'Contraband' meanders lazily beside the 3-story gem. Ask for a room on the 1st floor as there is no elevator but...
