This is a nice place to stay. I hope they keep their current rates for a while also. There not a whole lot of breakfast choices but they're good enough. It is fresh. And the juices are not watered down.

At first everything seemed find, young man at check in was pleasant. Requested a handicapped room which we got but was not suitable. Bathroom very small difficult to maneuver with low toilet. Beds comfortable but rooms oversized furniture made it difficult to get around with walker. At check out older man (possibly owner) was not very friendly. Breakfast mediocre. Upon arriving home found a problem with my credit card bill and called for explaination and the man I spoke to kept yelling at me he did not seem the least bit interested in resolving my problem. My husband and I travel regularly and would never stay there again.

Were there in november. Paid 59 $.
We had a smokers`room, but it didn`t smell at all. It was large and comfortable.
Interior was o.k. and the room very clean.
Staff was friendly and breakfast was also good.

My husband and I (Paul and Sheryl) travel from Tyler, TX to Lafayette, LA working and we stay at this Howard Johnson everytime we are in Lafayette for usually 4 days straight. The staff is VERY accomodating when we ask for the same room #121. The parking lot is extremely clean. We feel very safe and know that the management has our best interest at heart. We look forward to seeing her flowers each time. The beds are best thing about the hotel, VERY COMFORTABLE!!!! We will always stay at this hotel and will recommend to others.

My family and I have been travelling for years and have had some great.. some bad motels. This was one of the worse. It was filthy , dirty, and even managed to get what the owner described as a millipede on the floor behind the toilet. It was about 4 inches long and abot the size of a finger. Now that I've painted a mental immage, this is not the worde part. The owner said that everything was ok because there are alot of these creatures in Louisianna. He was very belligerent and rude, and when i asked him if we could move he snapped and said all that was availlable was on the second floor. My sister as he could see is crippled and could never go to the second foor. I called Howard Johnson's customer service and couldn't understand a word she was uttering. We place Everything we had up off the floor, used local restaurants facilities, and mannaged to sleep in the filthy room for the night. I know not all Howard Johnsons aren't as bad as this one, but will effect my choice in the future.

Room Tip: There couldn't possibly be a good room at this hotel !!!!
