“Lake Charles 2 night stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

We stayed here while doing the Creole Nature Trail. Hotel is right off the interstate and had several fast food rest, conveniece stores & Walmart on the main street. Nice king bed with a sofa sleeper. Fridge/micro and flat screen TV. Only negative was no in room coffee. Paid less than $50 a night with coupon from the tourist bureau and the free breakfast had coffee, juice, cereal and milk, danish, oatmeal, grits and 2 kinds of pancakes, and toast. Good way to start the day and man at the front desk was very nice.

Big mistake. If you're a hitchhiker kicked off the freeway and have $65 this is the place for you. The dirtiest, darkest, must disgusting carpeting I've ever seen. I sneezed for 2 days afterward. The absolute worst primitive Medieval "free" breakfast you can imagine. Truly, if you want to spend 8-9 hours in a 3rd world country this is the place for you.

Stopped here on a Saturday night while traveling through. The man at the desk was very nice and the room was very nice. The room was clean and towels were clean. I even got a lesson on history from the desk clerk on how Contraband Days was celebrated and why. Everything was good about the stay here except the 9 AM knock on the door from housekeeping asking if and when we would be checking out. What's up with that? Couldn't they have waited until they saw the room empty or at least until check out time? We didn't like the disturbance.

Please DO NOT STAY here!! I can not tell you how much I blame myself to have my family staying in this horrible,nasty place! It's probably the dirtiest hotel I ever stayed in my whole life. We couldnt cancell it because it was prepaid online, but I definetely NEVER stay here or st sny of these chain hotels on my life. It wasnt cheap, so we tought it was going to be pk for a one night stay, but it ended it up in a nightmare.

We are retired and traveling the U.S. by car. The coupon rate was $44.99 plus tax which came out to $51.96 for a couple with a King bed. The outside property is well maintained with good landscaping, palm trees, and fence surrounding the entire property. From the outside it made a good impression. The room was marginally clean but needed work. This property is run on shoe string budget. Even the bulbs in the room were of the lowest wattage to provide a dim glow overall. The microwave did not work and was replaced with another from a different room immediately. The bathroom was barely clean, water stains in the toilet. The sink had low water pressure. The shower water pressure was good but took many minutes to get hot water. We were ready to call the front desk when the hot water finally arrived. Only a few towels were provided. The King bed was comfortable, the A/C worked well. In the morning we found a few dead roaches on the floor. Morning breakfast was almost non-existent. We passed on the very few little item available and purchased coffee and food down the road. We know that $44.99 was a rock bottom rate and you get what you pay for, but we have stayed at other America's Best properties and they were better managed. Too bad, the management of the property could not have been nicer to us, but we have to report the facts as we see them. We will pass on this property next time around and choose a nearby facility for a few dollars more. It is unusual to see a well maintained property on the outside and a poor maintained room on the inside.

We stopped in Lake Charles 4-16-12 on road trip to Holly Beach - Mini was the night time clerk and was so sweet - she was very helpful w/advice and directions to places to eat. The room was very clean - my mom (82) is kinda picky about the bathrooms and she usually ask me to see the room first, so I was surprised when Mini asked me if I would like to see the room - I have never been asked that and when I do - some have not looked at me very nicely. Anyway, the bathroom is very clean w/plenty of towels, toiletries. A/C was cold (once again, my mom takes a heating pad when we road trip and i take a fan, which was not needed this time.) Beds were comfy - not hard - and had tv, clock, usual things. Even though it is busy around there - you don't hear the noise. I'm sorry I don't remember the morning man's name - he was very helpful too - since we were in Lake Charles - we decided to actually see the lake and he gave great directions to the beach. The continental breakfast was ok - but I did get there when they were shutting it down - all hotels should keep the breakfast going until 10:30 - some of us - if not in a hurry like to take a little while to get going. My mom and I will stay here again if we are in Lake Charles.

I am happy to say that this hotel was the best in the town. I visit the place frequently and i was happy to be treated very nicely. There was a guy who went by Jay was super nice and very nice to talk to. The place was very clean and i had great service. All the staff was very nice to me and they were all wonderful. I had a very nice stay there. I am thoroughly satisfied.
