The hotel is old, outdated, and rooms feel dirty. The carpet was sticky and the room smelled musty. Front desk not very friendly. Put us in a so called "executive king room" which had a large area of open space with uneven flooring that served absolutely no purpose. I think it was a double queen room that was poorly transformed into a king room. Bathroom was very small and furniture and countertops were stained. Sounded like a herd of heavy footed cattle running around above our room. Bed was fairly comfortable and air conditioned worked that's about all I can say. We usually enjoy our stays at Holiday Inn, but this one is a no go in our book.

Stay here fairly often. Large lobby with bar and restaurant just past the check-in. Rooms are nice, beds adequate. If you are looking for a place with a view this isn't it. If you are looking for a place to stay that is just one road off one of the main streets and usually quieter than other places with a quick ride to the casino area's this will work.

Nice stay at this Holiday Inn South. Clean, pleasant atmosphere, well lit, ample parking. Room was clean and prepped for visitors. However, outside window, facing north on third floor, was green with mold or mildew. Quiet room with no outside noise. Restaurant and pool were exceptionally clean. Check in & out easy and simple. Pleasant staff. Recommended.

Checked in for a two night stay here. When I came back in the evening after the first day all my belongings were taken out of the room and stored at the reception. The explanation of the receptionist was that they thought I was not coming back. Of course, booking for two nights and leaving my suitcase, my jacket, my shoes and toiletries in the room and then not coming back. Logical. The suitcase was easily retrieved, but the rest of my stuff took an hour to locate. Then got new keys for the same room and when I came to the room it turned out there was already another guest staying there. So back to the reception and got keys for another room. When checking my belongings I found my almost full bottles of shampoo and bodywash were missing. They couldn't be located anymore. Then I had to ask myself for some compensation, as the receptionist didn't think of that herself and then said she maybe could ask the manager but he was not in, so good luck with it. 15 dollars down the drawn and no compensation whatsoever. Apparently they are big enough to be so arrogant, but they have lost a customer for life. Bye.

Hi Nick B, Thank you for sharing your review of our Holiday Inn and Suites Lake Charles South. I was concerned to learn that your stay was not a complete success due to the issues encountered with the reservation, being allocated a room already occupied and with the missing items. We aim to provide a seamless experience and I am sorry we fell below expectations. Your feedback is very important to us. I would like the chance to look into this for you. I have sent you a private message to gather more details. I look forward to helping you further. Many thanks, Jonathan A Case Manager IHGService
