I was behind schedule due to traffic coming from Houston, so I hadn't planned on a hotel as I was planning to get to New Orleans. Anyway, it was late at night and $85 on a Sunday night. The room was sparse. No blankets, dirty bedspreads, thin sheets. The motel was under or finished with remodeling. Old style bathtub and...

Checked in, hotel was hot, filthy, mildew in shower and around sink. No shower drain stopper. No emergency fire sprinklers in room. Had two undercover cop cars parked in front of my room. Witnessed a prostitute exiting a room. Who ever decided that this hole In the wall could ever be designated as a "Hotel" should have their license revoked....

We booked this reservation on line (lesson learned!) because it was listed as "Pet" friendly. Upon arriving the young (limited knowledge) man went about trying to verify our reservation. When we indicated we had a small dog....he went "blank". During the registration on line we indicated we had a pet? Once he verified with someone he called he went about...

My family and I called the Lake Charles ABVI located on Martin Luther King to book a room directly. We needed a room for three guests and were told we could book a king room with a sleeper. After checking in, our room did not have the sleeper we were told they had. We contacted the front desk and the...

If I could rate this a 0 for service, I would. We found a coupon for this hotel for $49.99 a night, so we thought, hey, that's not bad, so we called and the girl on the other end rudely informed us that there were no vacancies, then promptly hung up on us. We ended up booking through Travelocity, even...

We stayed at this motel for 5 months. The room, although clean, spacious and relatively bug free, (saw several roaches) was not well lit, had cracks and scratches in the walls, and was noisy. We complained about the lighting several times, and also our neighbor's squeaky door without results. Finally we just gave up, and lived with it. We checked...

This guest did not get ripped off - guest did not understand how the credit card was charged. We authorized a charge for 7 nights and it actually was charged on the day guest checked out. This guest stayed here for 4 months and paid weekly so guest should have understood how the actual charge worked. This whole scenario resulted...

Nice rooms, good service, great people. This was worth stopping for. The rooms were nice and clean, the lobby and grounds were clean and well maintained. The breakfast was pretty good and the people were nice, cheerful, and helpful. If you're in Lake Charles, this is a nice place to stop.

Stayed one night at a cost of $59 ($70 with tax). They allow pets at $10 per pet. They didn't charge me the pet fee even though I had a dog. The pet rooms don't have carpet and the "normal" rooms do. Other economy/ nicer economy type chain hotel brands were $89-$99 for that same night. PROs (cheap, good location)...

Thank you for your feedback regarding your visit, we welcome both positive and negative feedback in order for us to continually improve as we aim to offer the best level of service possible. We obviously failed in a key area for your stay, namely the cleanliness. This is very disappointing, and I offer my sincerest apologies. Regards Manager

Good location, right near downtown and the lakefront. Not bad for cleanliness, although it's a little on the run down side. The in-room coffee maker was missing a piece and the freezer in the refrigerator was almost solid ice - so no coffee nothing frozen. You can't beat the price for the size of the room, though.

This hotel was very clean; comfortable, and convenient in a nice location. The manager and staff was very helpful and kind. Their breakfast, was a nice treat to wake up to before heading to the casinos. My overall experience was great.

  • Interesting stains.

  • Probably don't want to know what all that is.
  • Would you brave the lovely brown spots for some toilet paper?
