The family-owned Carmel Inn and Suites has been making guests feel at home for over 40 years with wonderful hospitality and comfortable accommodations! Surrounded by large oak trees and southern mansions along Bayou Lafourche, the Carmel Inn is built at the historic landmark site that was once a Mount Carmel convent and school, dating back to before the Civil War. Elements of the original building were preserved and restored, and incorporated into the present structure of this unique hotel. We boast almost 100 spacious rooms, a pool, fitness center, and computer room. Enjoy our complimentary hot breakfast before you explore nearby historical sites, Cajun country, and more! Whether you're planning a weekend getaway, a family reunion, or a fabulous wedding, Carmel Inn and Suites looks forward to welcoming you!

The Carmel Inn was a wonderful hotel to stay in while we were in Thibodaux. The rooms are very nice and the bed was very comfortable. The Gauberts, the owners, and staff -- Patricia, Janet and Teddie -- could not have been more welcoming or accommodating to us. You won't be

THANKS Vickie! It means a lot to have all the staff mentioned in this review. So often in life we are told about the negative side of things. With this review will be such a wonderful moral booster, knowing how our guest feel about the place they work. Walt Disney once said, “every job you do in life, you do it to the best of your ability.” This review will be read during our next stand around meeting, and know the smiles and joy it will provide. We hope you come back and see again soon. From all of us, Happy and safe travels, Greg Gaubert

We stayed at the Carmel Inn and Suites during a plantation tour Memorial Day weekend. The hotel is older, but the accommodations were nice, clean and have all the amenities offered in newer hotels. The staff were friendly and helpful! Peggy was there during our check-in and

Thanks Sherry for the excellent review! We try to do our best with our older facility but always looking to improve our place with an improved economy. We are excited with the opening of an upcoming attraction in the Thibodaux The Laurel Valley Plantation which will be opening their village to the public soon. It is the largest collection of structures of any plantation in the state. Currently our parish ranks 13 out of 64 parishes in Louisiana.Having the new attraction will help increase our occupancy and therefore the upgrades to our hotel can and will continue. TripAdvisor is our lifeline to our world guest and appreciate your review as especially Peggy! Our guest are important and thanks for making a difference. Safe travels and safe returns Greg Gaubert

Thanks Valerie, glad you enjoyed our hotel. Our facility is outdated in its decor and would love to step it up. Unfortunately the occupancy in Thibodaux’s market is below 38 percent and struggling for many years. Our hope with the new town attraction, “Laura Valley” those occupancy rates rise to the 70 percent range to make that dream a reality. Lafafourche parhish rank13th of 64 parishes and is a goal to reach the top ten in the near future.Our other goal is to return to a full service hotel but that also is hindered by occupancy numbers. If you return please let me know we do have a few rooms that we have updated furniture in and would like you to try staying in one of those rooms. Thanks for choosing us, Happy safe travels, Greg Gaubert

The staff was friendly and our room was clean with a comfortable bed. There is a small but nice pool area. The complimentary breakfast had plenty to choose from including a waffle iron. This is a motel where all of the rooms have doors that open directly to the outside.
