A little dated, needs major overhaul of rooms, new linens for beds, AC needs work, no breakfast available except in restaurant, too far to walk anywhere to eat. Very quiet, in bad neighborhood with inadequate parking. I would stay here again because the people were nice and I stayed on a back side room on the fourth floor, very far...

What a fabulous full-service hotel! The drinks and food in the Grill were wonderful. The steak was cooked to perfection. The rooms are all updated and the decor is superior to other Holiday Inns. The staff were all so cordial and the hotel is close to the boats!

We stayed here just one night but it was clean, comfortable and everyone was very nice. All the staff were happy, kind, helpful and seemed glad to be at work! Breakfast was good, what you expect as free breakfast, worth the price overall. Would definitely recommend!

My recent stay from April 5-10th was graced with Brittany working the front desk. She was extremely knowledgeable about area, local flavors, customs and services. The circumstances revolving my return home was not an easy one but Brittany went out of her way to assist with details, including special arrangements. She was beyond personable and compassionate and was so reassuring...

The best thing about the hotel was that it was convenient to getting to McNeese. The staff was also friendly. The room was a comfortable size, although it took a while to regulate the temperature. The bathrooms, however, were in need of a better cleaning.
