We planned a spur of the moment night in lake charles so we booked here after seeing the rooms and that it has free breakfast, but the ac is steady making a wierd noise and the room looks nothing like the website picture

We booked for 2 nites and after walking into the room we went straight to the office and asked for our money back. We had booked online so she would not refund us our money. We reluctantly stayed one nite. Not sure what kind of activities were going on there but there were some pretty sketchy characters hanging out in...

It's so noise outside. Looks like a lot of things that's aren't right goes on at your hotel! Whatever you guys use to clean it out is too strong! And the chair inside the room needs to be in the trash.

Bathroom was full of Mold at the top of the wall this is not very good especially people with allergies. Carpet could have cleaner in the room itself.

I think that a very good door sweep or molding could cut down on outside noise and air infiltration plus keep any bugs out
