I have stayed at this hotel on several occassions and it is a nice property. This hotel was used by Katrina evacuees from the end of august until mid February and it has taken its toll. They are fixing the place up and I would stay there again.

Reviewed June 4, 2006

My husband and I stayed here over the Memorial Day Weekend with our one year old and we found it very comfortable and the staff excellent.

We arrived to check in and the hotel was completely booked out with several wedding parties and there was a big queue at check in. Despite this the front desk staff were organised, effiicient and very welcoming. Everything was ready, we had to wait a little for a crib but it was delivered by a very friendly, apologetic maid.

The room was very spacious and the bathroom is bigger than standard. It was clean and nicely furnished. The bed was very comfortable.

The included breakfast is not a buffet, it is available in their cafe and is a voucher to purchase what you wish. We had a big breakfast on both mornings and the voucher covered everything and the tip.

Overall it was a very enjoyable stay in a welcoming, comfortable hotel. Don't hesitate to stay here.

The lobby and hotel room were nice and clean. The enclosed pool was available during the thunderstorm. The hotel has easy access to the interstate highway and we plan to stay there again.

Brand new hotel with rooms you can only enter from the inside.
Extremely safe and secure. Very clean with nice linens and bathrooms with all the essentials you may need. I relaxing experience after a long day driving.
