My father and I and our two small dogs were forced to evacuate our home in St Charles Parish for Hurricane Issac on Aug 27, 2012. We arrived at the hotel in the early afternoon and found our room ready for our arrival. It was neat, clean and as advertised. The staff was very polite, helpful and friendly and seemed eager to please. The cleaning staff was excellent even though we didn't ask for daily service. The front desk also made changes to extend our stay when the storm refused to move on after a day or so. We found the breakfast offering far beyond what we expected and if you went early it was well stocked. The wifi in our room was the best I have found in any hotel I have ever stayed. Which was a life saver in keeping up with local news via the internet. The pool was clean and in beautiful condition even though we didn't use it. If I had any complaints at all it was the distance we had to walk to take our pets for their potty breaks. The only green area is in front of the hotel next to the service road and access is difficult if you are disabled. My suggestion would be for the hotel to give up one of the islands in the parking area and remove the shrubs and plant grass. There is a doorway to the rear of the hotel that is open in the early morning which is perfect for a pet area but cannot be left open at night due to security reasons, which we understood. There are also several restaurants near by as well as a Walmart. This will now be our "go to location" should another evacuation be ordered. Thank you to the owners and staff of Days Inn Ruston for making a very tense time as comfortable as could be.
