One of my big disappointments in the hotels in Natchitoches is that prices can be kind of 'gouge-y' (for example, it's not hard to find a hotel on the beaches of Mississippi or in the city of New Orleans for the same price or cheaper than what hotels off the Interstate in Natchitoches will run you).
While I usually stay at one of two other chains that I have loyalty memberships in, I saw that Fairfield undercut them by up to $30. I figured it was worth a try.
Glad I made the choice. Beds were extremely comfy, hotel was TASTEFULLY appointed (sorry, I've stayed at other hotel chains whose decor was more akin to 1970's era European adult films), breakfast was awesome. Two waffle irons is a nice touch, eggs tasted like eggs instead of a mix, etc.
Location is great, as the hotel shares a parking area with a Wendy's, Popeye's and a convenience store, so a lot to choose from for the hungry without needing to hop back in the car. It's also down the road from Nicky's, a pretty awesome locally-owned Mexican place.
Most important was the staff! Everyone greeted us with a sincere smile. Never once did I feel that an employee greeted us 'because they had to'. The desk help went above and beyond when we needed a favor, the breakfast crew kept things moving along. I think I've found my new spot! I just hope they can keep undercutting the gougers.
