This is the place to stay. It's locally owned and run, by fine Cajun folks. The personal touches, story, and atmosphere are superior to anything else you will find near by. It's was formerly a convent and later a hotel. The breakfast and light suppers are fantastic. It's a great value and enjoyable stay. Will stay here again.

Dear Guest, Thank You for the wonderful review. Many years this hotel was run by corporate managers and it did not have a story. Thibodaux has so much culture and as an owner wanted to tell that story. After all we are the G rated version of New Orleans. Glad you enjoyed the story line of history and culture of... More

I would like to thank the staff of Carmel Inn and Suites for allowing our animal rescue organization to host a fundraiser at their facility today. The atmosphere had a cozy, "homelike" quality and the staff were very accommodating and animal friendly. Everyone was warm, friendly and hospitable. Can't thank you enough.

Lovely clean room, wonderful friendly staff, yummy breakfast, nice area. Was here only one night, and wished we'd stayed a second, as the place we stayed in New Orleans was really bad! Good choice of restaurants, as well. An overlooked jewel :)
