“New, but definately bare bones.”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

This is a newer HIE, located south of town near the airport. That means it is definitely not easy off and easy on to I-10. Since it is newer, things are still fresh and neat, but as far as design and amenities, this one is definitely bare bones. First the good stuff. The check in was fast and efficient. The breakfast room is large, so you don't feel rushed to get out of the way. Breakfast selections were standard HIE. Now my other comments. We had a suite, but it was really just one room with a very small divider between the bedroom and the living area. That is not my idea of a suite. Three adults might find things a bit tight, but it is really OK for a quick overnight stop.

I was in town for a 2-day business meeting and was very pleased with my stay at this location. The proximity to the airport is unbeatable! Although I had a late arrival and very early checkout, they was always a staff member to greet me or say farewell. The breakfast was better than usual for this type of accommodation and the woman in charge was FABULOUS. She even tracked me down to deliver my yogurt to me (I had left it on the counter when carrying too many items!) The room was spacious and flexible. I used the 2 sections of the desk to form an "L" as I had to do a significant amount of work from the hotel room in the morning and evenings. The bed was very comfortable and I love the selection of pillows. I will be returning to the area and will definitely make this my 'homebase'!

Room Tip: I was on the 2nd floor at the end of the hall - very quiet room, for being on the street-side of a a...

Very well kept up with very large comfortable rooms. Lots of places for the kids to play, pool and hot tub game room, playgrounds and fine dining room. The rooms we had had 2 queen beds and were very comforting after a full day of touring and shopping and visiting local attractions. We really enjoyed our stay here.

Room Tip: I asked for an inside room it's more secure and better for small children to be save. The rooms...

I checked in at the front desk with Lana. She greeted me with a smile and was very helpful in letting me know how to get to my room. She offered me fresh baked cookies upon arrival and told me about several wonderful local restaurants in the area. The property around the hotel was very well kept and the inside was even more beautiful. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED the couches in the lobby!! The breakfast was surprisingly bountiful and checkout was a breeze. I will most definitely be visiting again!

Room Tip: The regular rooms are really nice but of course the suites are definitely worth the extra money!

This Hotel is ABSOLUTELY the Biggest Slice Of Heaven in the Lafayette area. I was so impressed with everything they had to offer. It was sooo clean and smelled like heavenly cookies, (YES! THE COOKIES TASTE JUST AS HEAVENLY AS THEY SMELL GREAT!!), also convenient location to great shopping spots, restaurants in the same blocks from the hotel had amazing food recommended by the hotel. The Beds are sooo Wonderful, I slept like a baby. As for the STAFF including Housekeeping, Breakfast and Front Desk are ALL ANGELS!!! They are the Kindest, Most Considerate, Loving Bunch of Angels I Have EVER Encountered. BIG, BIG KUDOS TO THE GM FOR KEEPING SUCH AN AWESOME STAFF AND HOTEL!!!

Room Tip: If you do get a chance to visit this heavenly hot spot check out rooms 209 and 211.

Checked in with Jordan, greeted with a warm and welcoming smile. Very beautiful decor, very clean property.Friendly and professional staff. Ms. Yvonne prepared the best instant grits I ever had, didn't know instant grits could taste that good, she has the best kept secret. Regan, shared some great eating spots. On Sunday we selected the Blue Dog for brunch, boy was that food tasteful! Kudos, to the property grooming artists

The hotel is nice and clean. The pool and pool area is small and could use more patio furniture. Reagan at the front desk and the lady (didn't get her name) in the breakfast area were both very friendly and helpful.
