This hotel is really, really nice. As is the custom with HI Express, the beds and pillows are super comfy and great to sleep on. We had the double queen room, which is spacious, modern and super clean. The staff here are efficient and friendly --- especially Petula at the front desk who recommended a terrific seafood place for us...

Great place to stay. Staff is super friendly. Rooms are very nice. The pool and hot tub are excellent. The breakfast could be better. We have stayed here three times this year and have enjoyed each stay. We will stay here each time we visit Lake Charles.

We almost did not stay at this hotel. This was a late-night stop to get some rest, and turning off of the interstate, you would think you were in the wrong place..you turn off (remember this was at night) at a very ghetto-like neighborhood with dilapidated homes...travel a half-mile or so, then BAM, there it is - the hotel in...

I spent one night there on my way to Austin, Texas. It was clean, comfortable, and very nice. The room was beautiful and I felt very safe there. It was right off of route 10 which allowed me to get bright back to my journey easily. The breakfast was fresh and delicious. The front desk staff was warm and inviting...

First off, the Internet Access speeds are very fast (if that is important to you). The down speed was a blazing 51 Mbps, upload speed is 9Mbps. The hotel is just a bit dated, but is well kept. Every single one of the one of the staff greeted me pleasantly and they seemed to enjoy being there. The breakfast was...

It's your typical Holiday Inn, nothing too fancy, however the staff is amazing!. My family checked in late on Friday and I had accidentally booked a double bed smoking room. I thought it might not be too bad but I was wrong. The room smelled strongly of smoke (obviously since it's a smoking room). When I went to the front...

We stayed here for 2 nights in May 2015 and were very happy with everything. The staff was as nice as they could be, the property was spotless, and the bed was comfortable. They could use some more cable TV channels, but that's a minor thing.
