We arrived in Shreveport on the way through to Florida in the middle of the night, and we were basically stopping at every hotel at this exit looking for a room. Thankfully, the Hilton Garden Inn had a room available and checked us in quickly and professionally.
The parking lot is well lit and has sufficient space for a fully booked hotel, but I would offer one word of caution. The sprinklers to the West of the hotel turned on shortly after we arrived, and since I had pulled my car all the way up to the curb, the rather curious sprinkler positioning had water shooting up into my engine.
The common area of the hotel seemed very clean for what little time we were there. The room was a bit different. The bedding and furnishings were nice enough, but the floors and especially the bathroom left a lot to be desired.
The main issue, however, was what bit me? I've been bitten by a lot of different critters in my day, but either someone has been feeding mosquitos steroids, or this was something I haven't come across before. I know it can be difficult to control pests, and to allay any fears of the obvious, no, we didn't bring anything home with us.
Hopefully, this experience was a fluke (no, not *that* kind of fluke), but like I said, the room really wasn't in keeping with the quality of the rest of the hotel. If you're in a pinch, it's fine, but if you have a choice, I would look at some alternatives.
