I seldom leave reviews but the very upbeat and helpful lady that worked the morning breakfast the morning of our departure wed. oct.3 was great. I am not a morning person but this lady,I wish I had gotten her name, was all smiles and happy. This really got me in the mood for a day of long travel--heres to you-I hope she reads this. This short overnight stay does not help much for a review but this hard worker does rate a word of thanks. The over all stay was very nice.

This was a very nice, clean hotel. The rooms were large. The bed was comfortable. The only issue was that some of the guests (I suspect Hurricane Issac refugees) were loud and obnoxious. Upon arrival, guests were sitting at the front door entrance drinking beer and smoking and were very loud. I asked the front desk clerk if that was going to be a problem and she said "no". But it was a problem as the hotel was more of a party zone than a nice, relaxing place to sleep. We finally got to sleep at 3:30AM after calling in complaints from Midnight on. When did an interstate hotel become a party place and not a place for tired travelers to get some sleep? The clerk was very nice and professional, but this young lady (early 20's) should not be left alone all night to deal with unruly guests. Management needs to re-examine this policy of leaving women alone all night to work the entire hotel.

Thank you very much for voicing your concerns. Our hotel and location are very safe. We are extremely sorry that you experianced disturbances. After the hurricane, things were a little different with so many people being displaced from their homes. Let me assure you, things are back to normal and nice and quiet. We hope you will consider staying with us again. Again, we appreciate your comments.

One of the most pleasant stays I have ever had in a hotel. My husband and I have traveled for business and pleasure quite a bit the last ten years and the stay here was excellent. The staff is by far the friendliest I have ever encountered. The breakfast is great with a nice variety of things to eat and the room was very clean and smelled fresh. I would recommend this place to any person looking for a great place to stay!

Room Tip: We stayed on the 3rd floor and it was quiet and quite nice!

We were in Louisiana working with the Hurricane Isaac Victims, most hotels were full. The staff accomodated us by giving us the handicap suite since it was past 8:00 PM. The next day, there were a couple of cancellations, and we quickly were given reservations for the remainder of our stay. We were out in the field, and the staff moved our belongings to the new suite and everything was intact. The breakfast was a special treat in that it offered a variety and was hot. The facility was extremely clean and the maid even sprayed air freshner in our room after cleaning. This has to be one of the top Country Inn & Suites in the country.

We stayed here on a Friday evening. We live in Baton Rouge, but stayed here in order to make an early morning meeting the next day. We were really happy with this hotel. We felt like we were on vacation - the staff was so friendly, the room was clean and cool, and the breakfast was very good with a lot of choices. This hotel is centrally located on the Northshore and is literally down the street from the Causeway - you could be in Metairie in about 30 minutes, depending on traffic. We will definitely look for a Country Inn and Suites first the next time we are looking for a hotel.

We arrived for late check in so we missed the Hors d'oeuvre and wine hour. It turns out it is more like a light supper instead of a snack. Check in was simple and the clerk was very friendly. We took full advantage of the 24 hour home baked cookies and cold milk. The room was clean and comfortable with a microwave and mini fridge. The bathroom amenities were name brand. We had a hot breakfast with bacon and eggs. Evelyn who was in the kitchen was the friendliest person you will ever meet. She went out of her way to make sure she had available what we wanted from the kitchen. It is a hotel that gives a discount for prepaying and provides two free meals which makes it a huge bargain. We will definitely return for our next trip to Covington.
