Although most of the staff was nice enough, the place needs too much work and we tried 2 different rooms ......roaches were in the microwave, refrigerator everywhere. The bathroom in which I had to clean extensively had black mold. Tubs all cracked and stained. Pool was green and construction going on all day. It should be shut down until construction...

This place should be condemned. I have never been so terrified of staying in a hotel, as I was here. The smell was horrid and I got home with weird rashes on my arms. I am not very picky when it comes to hotels, but this hotel was by far the worst I have ever visited. Steer clear of this...

My husband and I travel all over the US. This literally was the worst room we have ever stayed at. We have been to Canada and Mexico and never would you find a room this bad. We are not picky about the room other than cleanliness and safety when we travel. We do not stay in high dollar rooms. This...

This is the worse motel I have ever stayed at. We evacuated for the the hurricane and couldn't find any rooms available anywhere. We stayed one night while we made call after call to find another place to stay. The headboard fell off the wall, the outlets were coming off the walls, there was a nice size hole behind the...

The housemaids and a few desk clerks are the reason that place has survived this long. They do a wonderful job. I in my own opinion think the very fraudulent old lady that hides in that room isn't in any position to run a hotel. She blames all HER mistakes on the staff. I currently reside there now. And I...

Some people are very quick to judge. you dont judge a book by its cover and you you shouldn't judge a bussiness by it's exterior condition! they are doing a wonderful job there and they now have 24/7 security. they have made a 100 degree turn around w/that place. and not to mention the housemaids get a 10 on my...

Poor (and I don't embrace that term) internet connection is my reason to not stay. We all do have to earn a living somehow! While the (internet) wireless network is definitely NOT dependable...Deluxe Inn located in Baton Rouge is surprisingly q/q..quaint and quiet..no sign of drugs, prostitution, unkept guests ...safety is an aim for many people and outwardly appears to...

These review are real and not from a disgruntled customers. We stayed here for a week due to our home being renovating and it was like the week from hell. The room had a bad odor to it, very unclean. They only cleaned the room up once during a week of stay. We had to go to the office and...

Please take heed!!! This is a fact, not an opinion. We evacuated from New Orleans for a storm and my father-in-law's company got available rooms for it's employees. Unfortunately this was the only "Roach Motel" available. FUNKY, FUNKY, NASTY!!! These are the only words I could find to describe this place. The room was soooo dirty I had to run...
