My wife and I had the pleasure of staying two nights at the Carmel Inn and Suites while in Thibodaux. Check in was efficient and friendly. A nice bonus was bottled water and cookies for each of us. Our room was clean, but did show a few signs of wear and tear common with places like this. This did not... More

Pros: Location, amenities, friendly & welcoming staff. The husband and wife owners were wonderful and always in the property. Our room was clean and comfortable.

Additionally, this stay was an excellent value with daily breakfast and Monday to Wednesday full dinner, included. Con: Minor, such as the bathroom... More

We stayed at the Carmel Inn while spending four nights in Thibodaux. This is definitely the best pet friendly place in town. It is not new, but is kept very clean. Kudos to the staff...Debra, Caitlin, front desk, breakfast hostess and Greg. Everyone was very friendly and eager to make sure we had a pleasant stay. Thanks to all!

My friend and I took a road trip to tour some of the plantations in Louisiana recently. We stayed at Carmel Inn and Suites in Thibodaux for three nights. As soon as we arrived, we were given star treatment with employees offering us tips on things to do in the area, including some free cultural events. The manager was outstanding.... More

I attended a baseball tournament at Nicholls State University. Our stay was great! My son plays for a college prep team and we are in a different city every weekend.

This is an older hotel with outside room access. So you park in front of your door and walk right in. Modern key card door locks. Clean rooms. Comfy beds. Comfy pillows. The room had a fridge, microwave, and coffee pot too. The complimentary breakfast was scrambled eggs, biscuits, gravy, sausage, fruit, coffee, juice, and yogurt. All home made. Each... More

First off there are not a lot of choices of hotels in Thibodaux. We found this one by its high rating on Tripadvisor. The staff was the highlight of the hotel, excellent front desk staff.

I generally think customer service is horrific. I never leave comments because I don't believe most places would read the feedback never mind act on it. I so enjoyed my stay at this hotel, I was pleasantly surprized by many things at this hotel.
