Hotel was very good for the price we got a room for. Breakfast was excellent and service was great. Will stay there again if passing through. Workers were very helpful. Rooms were not excellent but did get it for only 62.00.

Great location!!! My husband and I were on our way to New Orleans from Texas, and I said "Hey Jimmy! I'm tired!" So we were lucky enough to have gotten a coupon book at the rest area earlier that day. Located right off of I-12 and I-55, we were able to head straight to New Orleans the following morning.
