This was a last resort for hotel because of another event as well as the wedding we were attending in the same town. LWe were scammed when booked through a random website as well as our friends. Our friends booked through the hotel itself the 2nd time, there wasn’t a room booked when he arrived. Our bathroom was new looking and clean, sheets were clean, and a/c worked great. The room itself was very outdated a gross. The next morning there was a dead roach in the bathtub. We were appreciative to have a place to stay but would avoid staying again if possible. I should have taken pictures!

I was shocked when we drove up to the hotel. It was very disappointing, warn down and needs major renovations. Front desk people were nice but the place is not being attending to properly. . I would not stay here again.

Pro: The front desk associate was nice. Cons: This hotel is in need of major upgrades/repairs/renovation. This is a 2-star hotel & is not for travelers who have quality expectations above that. My overall experience was uncomfortable...

This place was horrible! We were there from Wednesday before Thanksgiving through check out on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. There was no phone in the room. And even after we requested one we never received one. However at checkout we were told the phone Jack didn’t work in that room. Since they were aware of that, why not tell us upon check in. There was not a credit discount discount offered for that and the leaking water from the refrigerator. IT WAS A MESS! Never again.

It was really nice to meet you and your family on the property and chat about your travel vacation experiences. As we were speaking there is always something new to learn about hospitality. About ten years ago, I thought like you, and did think that about calling our breakfast a continental as a way of a upward complement. It really means juices, fruit, cereals, coffee and toast at the very least. We didn't realize that a hot breakfast actually is superior to a continental as we have 36 individual items on average. To keep it appealing, we do rotate some items in and out the menu. I'm just glad you liked it. Crystal will be pleased and surprised to get this review, it is always appreciated. We hope you return again, and maybe during the fireman's fair in mid October this year and even bigger in early May of 2022, Happy safe travels, All the best, Greg Gaubert

We took our kids for the Manning Passing Academy and this is the closest place to the camp. It's nothing fancy but very clean, quiet and the staff and owners are super friendly. I will give it a 5 star for customer service, something in the big cities people have forgotten about.

I’m glad your family got to experience our family operation and our staff definitely appreciates a review like this with her hard work. We do hope your return next year for the camp, but until they release the dates please checking back. Thank you in advance for remembering ice returning to Thibodaux. Happy safe travels, Greg Gaubert

From the start, all the staff were super friendly and considerate. We had a bad experience just down the road with another place first. When we got here, Jaime was the young lady that took care of us. She got us checked in after 3 in the morning and even gave us a funeral discount because of the nature of our trip. The way she spoke to us and took time with us was absolutely a God send!! We ended up staying two nights and having our other family members come to stay there with us, as well. Not only are the rooms clean, but the pool/patio area is amazing!!! (just the relaxing atmosphere we needed on such a trip)!!! This place also provides REAL food for breakfast (HOT FOOD), FREE, that goes with the rooms. We were taken care of by an employee named Crystal when we ate there. Again, VERY NICE person!!! I can not say enough how impressed we were with this place and all the staff working there. Thank you so much from our family!!
