Our stay was fantastic! The hotel was very accommodating. The breakfast was hot and delicious. The rooms do not have any bells and whistles but they were clean and cozy. The staff at the front desk was warm and friendly. I would definitely stay here again if I am in the area.

Great Place, Great Service ! They went out of their way to see that we had a great stay. My wife and I were very happy with the level of service we received. We are in our 60's, handicapped and they took care of our every needs.

A LITTLE HIGHER THAN I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE, but everything was well done and the rooms were clean and comfortable. A heater in the bathroom would be the only change I could make. I JUST GOTTA TRY THE WINE & CHEESE WEDNESDAY!!!

Hi Gordon, we are so happy you loved your clean and comfortable room, and your overall stay! And yes, our Wine & Cheese Wednesdays are extremely popular, and for good reason! Who doesn't love complimentary wine and gourmet cheese after a long day of traveling? Also, don't forget about our equally popular Margarita Mondays, and our beer and chips offerings...

We recently spent three nights here while visiting New Orleans. The room was clean and comfortable; included a lounge chair, frig, microwave. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

First the AC control knob was broke which met that the unit either had to run on high all night or be turned off. We addressed the problem after our first night and...

great breakfast over 3 days, with variety. Had eggs, sausage, bacon, waffles, grits, sausage gravy, biscuits, fruit, yogurt, cereal, etc. Bed was comfy, shower was great. About 1/2 hour from New Orleans and 90 minutes from Swamp tours, Free parking that is hard to get in New Orleans.
