This is an excellent place to stay at. It is good for the price and the staff are very helpful and friendly. They are always ready to sort any problems out as soon as you complain. The manager is great and very kind.
The rooms are clean, the place is quiet and peaceful.

Stayed: August 2016, travelled with friends

I made an online reservation and it said I would get an email for confirmation. I looked the day before we were to leave - no email, no email in the evening. Still no email the morning we were to leave. I tried calling, but no phone #. I had to have my phone carrier help me find the phone# and she also couldn't find it either for awhile. When I did call, the lady on the phone had no idea we were coming and couldn't look on the computer. I would have to wait 12-1PM when the owner got there. We were needing to leave much earlier than that to get there at a decent time. We left hoping for the best. When we got there we did have a room but the lobby was locked. Our room looked clean, but we started seeing roaches all over even in the bed. Only 1 towel and 4 small hand cloths. The bed was not that comfortable, the pillows were really cheap and would flatten out when laying on them. It is NOT a good place to stay. The neighborhood is also really run down.

Room Tip: I would say NO room is good

Location: You don't want to go for a stroll here after dark - or in broad daylight, either. At three in the afternoon the main lobby was locked. The smaller after-hours lobby was open, but there was no one in attendance. An employee (owner?) finally showed up, having been alerted by the aggressive barking and snarling of a 40 pound dog in the main lobby who wanted to sink his teeth into some flesh - mine! My non-smoking room, sign on the door and everything, smelled like an ashtray. In fact, there was an ashtray on the table and a cigarette butt in the toilet. Pool was closed - not that I'd have gotten in it, anyway, by this time. Bathtub did not have a non-slip surface on the bottom - slick as wet ice. Slipped twice, caught myself. Third time was the charm - fell solidly on the side of the tub. Result: one broken (or severely bruised) rib. Breakfast was not available in the lobby, even though there were chairs and tables set up - no way would I have I risked it.
Bad experience all the way made worse by the people operating this waste of space.
Much better places to stay in Shreveport - Bossier City. Caddo Parish jail is probably one of them.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else!

Killed roaches all night carpet filthy sink smogged from toothpaste towels only for one person dead roaches in refrigerator persons under me complain about they live there an we was making too much noise called my room from her room then hung up in my face. We left had to shake out my bags to ensure we wasn't transporting roaches!!! Nasty disgusting bug problem. Don't stay here you pay 50 dollars a night in summer months and can't even get in the pool its been dry for years!!
