The staff was friendly and extended my check out by two hours. The bath tub would not hold water. A very nice maintenance person tried diligently to fix, but to no avail. The remote in the bedroom was missing. The hotel was quiet and I slept like a baby on the mattress and loved the wonderful pillows. The issue with...

We made a last-minute reservation to stay here for the Louisiana Half-Marathon, and it didn't disappoint. The rates were reasonable, and the service was on par with what you'd expect in a larger big-named hotel, but the atmosphere was certainly that of an independent hotel. The room was suitable to rest for the big race, and it had all the...

I had the pleasure of staying at the Lod Cook Hotel in the middle of March for several nights on company business. We had a total of eight rooms with seven of them being regular rooms and one being a mega suite with a living room, kitchen, spa, bathroom, and bedroom. The suite was used as a work room for...

Spent 4 nights at this hotel during a conference on the LSU campus. The property is nice, well maintained and clean. My 4th floor room was large and clean, with large windows that unfortunately didn't open. Above all it was quiet - a must when on a working trip requiring early starts and long days. Would have considered 4 stars...

This facility is getting a little dated but is maintained well and clean. The "free" breakfast is not worth your time unless you want coffee. The pay breakfast is no better than any other average free breakfast at the chains. Mainly re-heated, hard to eat stuff so for $8 you get what you pay for. It is hard to pay...

We stay at Lod Cook every LSU home game. Love everything about this hotel- the staff, atmosphere and location are awesome. The LSU campus is close by the hotel and in walking distance. Highly recommend!

If visiting Baton Rouge or the LSU campus, the Cook Hotels and Conference Center is the most convenient and friendliest place to stay. A great value, and all the comforts of home. An added bonus is the beautiful lake across the street that is great for running or waking, or even sitting idly by to pass the time.

I was redirected to this hotel because the Marriott Hotel was under renovation and behind schedule so rooms weren't finished. This hotel is located on the LSU campus and that is great if you need to be on campus. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are dated (stuck somewhere in the 90s). The beds are comfortable and the...

I stayed at this hotel one night because my child was still in class before the thanksgiving holiday. The location is incredibly convenient. I will strongly consider staying there again when I have to drop off/ pick up child from LSU. The hotel WiFi was easy to access and worked well. I stayed in a King room. It was cozy....
