Rented a room here last minute as a place to pass out after a night on bourbon street. We ended up just driving home after because we could not bear the thought of sleeping here. To put this in perspective, my group was part of a bachelor party with people who have been fine sleeping in ditches and bushes in...

Disgusting! The only way you would appreciate this hotel is if you have been homeless. Afraid of what disease we would catch if we had actually stayed! They wanted us to pay again even though they had proof it was paid online! Can you say rip off?

Pros: right off I10, helpful and polite staff, comfortable bed, wonderful shower, surrounded by plenty of gas station/convenience stores.

Stained sheets, a cigarette butt and ashes left on the counter beside the TV, no toilet paper (like the roll came with around 5 sheets left and no extra roll). Did not smell good. Given that the Inn is beside a highway, you can hear it loudly in the morning... As somebody who travels a lot and can take "not...

Dirty, shabby, metal poking out from under bed just ready to bang your legs on, cold water only dribbling out of tap, sheets too small for bed, etc. etc. etc. Wifi very poor. Said free breakfast, but none available. Wouldn't have eaten as I would have been afraid of food poisoning! Terrible, terrible place. Sign said no refunds under any...

Absolute worst customer service. Booked a room for two nights TWO MONTHS in advance, called many times before arriving to confirm the room was still reserved, and the woman on the phone always confirmed our reservation. We call again two hours before we were set to arrive, and the man on the phone, Timothy, told us that we did not...

I made reservations for my son and his friend to stay here for 4 nights during VooDoo Fest over Halloween weekend. The reservations were made a month in advance. They got to the hotel prior to check-in time and was told a room was not ready. Not a problem. Hotel staff told them they could still park their car in...

This review is hard to write as there was no real big problem, just an unhappy unsafe feeling that we both felt as soon as we arrived for our one night stay. The welcome was nice enough, we were given some tips of where to go and to get an uber. The room was poor, the window was filthy, there...
