The value is good free breakfast, free drink in the lounge, USA Today delivered to the door,nice pool area.Only drawback is the A/C in room. This is not a new property but completely renovated and kept up. The staff from check in to check out we're unusually friendly. We will be back even tho
They are building a new HI Express .

We have aged some in the last forty years but we like to think of our self as a Legacy hotel. It is always nice to receive positive reviews such as yours. Again, thank you for your comments.

Currently it is Wednesday, and I have been staying at this hotel since Sunday. The entire staff is so welcoming and friendly that I am on a first name basis with most of them already. As far as the hotel, itself, goes...a few people gave some undeserving, sub-par reviews. I haven't seen anything to justify any of this. The rooms are VERY clean, spacious, and have great decor/appliances. True they face the exterior, but who cares? My room faces the courtyard with a good sized pool, plenty of patio furniture, and public grills should you want to use them. The ON-SITE laundry services were very helpful, and I like having use of the 24-hr gym (at no cost) across the street rather than a smaller hotel gym with a treadmill and a couple dumbells. There is a FANTASTIC restaurant on-site as well, which offers room service. Breakfast and lunch buffet is in addition to the regular menu items. The icing on the cake is the hotel bar. It is no boring, ordinary one either. This place is two stories with pool tables, a jukebox, plenty of lounge and cocktail seating, a dance floor, ENORMOUS tv's...you name it. I really just can't say enough about this place. I haven't left the hotel since I got here, which is very unusual for me, but you really don't have any need to. I guess the best support I can give is to stay here for the remainder of the week.

Room Tip: At the restaurant, order the "trust your chef" pasta. It can be anything, but mine was a...

Thank you for taking the time out of your schedule to write such a complimentary and comprehensive review of your stay. As the General Manager, I must tell you it was a excellent way to end the week. I have printed your sentiments and passed them along to the staff.
Morgan's restaurant is a local favorite and has a strong reputation in the local area. It is always gratifying when someone outside of Louisiana recognizes authentic cajun made from scratch cooking. We take a lot of pride in what we do. I know your kind words will continue to reinforce the sense of pride the employees already have.
When you are back in the area, please come back and visit again.

Sincerely,
Sharon Howell
General Manager

I recently stayed 3 night at the Holiday Inn in Morgan City, La. I was Impressed with the Food and service by staff and how well mannered the receptionist was while checking in and out of our stay. I must also give Kudos to the Pool area and landscaping done it look very professional and made our time by the pool side very relaxing. I must also make mention of towels by the pool and also floats and toys for the kids to play with while in the pool. I would have to give this stay at the Holiday Inn for my 4th of July vacation a 10 out of 10. I also look forward to going back and staying again because I felt at home and it was a clean friendly environment.


Thanks

The staff at the Holiday Inn in Morgan City is top of the line. I've stayed at this hotel many times and I've always found the staff to be exceptionally courteous and professional. When it comes to customer service one person stands out as an example to all, Kristy Toups. After checking out from the hotel, I realized that I had inadvertently left an important business package behind and could not get back to the hotel because I had already flown offshore. Kristy was kind enough to offer to drive 30 minutes out of her way to bring the package to a heliport that could ultimately fly it to me. This is truly service that is above and beyond the call. Special people like Kristy are what make the Holiday Inn in Morgan City an extraordinary hotel.

We stayed for three nights recently and had a very pleasant stay. As others have noted, it's not a new builidng but the staff keep it very clean. The A/C worked well which was necessary in the summer heat and humidity. The pool was well kept - though we had to ask someone to unlock the gates in the morning and stock the pool towels. Staff were very friendly and willing to work with our family group on a discounted rate block.

The breakfast buffet was well worth the stay! Hot and fresh food and plenty of it.

Visiting my son in M.City, requested a room close to parking because husband has difficulty breathing and walking. The room was amazing in that it served his needs perfectly. It was a handicapped room, close to everything we needed in the hotel. Ashley Richard and Chris Steele were so personable, gave us a business card so we'll have the phone no. for future reservations. Spent time talking with us before we left asking if we found everything satisfactory. They were pleasant and friendly. The hotel was only 2 blks. from my son's home so we were able to stay later than usual because I don't drive at night. It was, truly, a blessing. Thank you for being there.

Room Tip: Just let the reservation clerk know of your needs and I'[m sure they will get you the right room...
