Positive Reviews

Suburban location near shops, dining and key roads

Motorists in particular praised the location of this suburban Baton Rouge motel as it was just off the intersection of highway I-12 and US Route 61, making it straightforward to get to downtown Baton Rouge, industrial areas, shopping malls, golf courses, universities and regional attractions. Guests liked the way there were several places to eat located within easy walking distance. Furthermore, there were petrol stations and bus stops in the immediate vicinity as well as a bowling alley. Drivers were also delighted there was free parking.

Revamped rooms were clean and inexpensive

According to many visitors, the updated rooms enjoying carpet-free flooring, flat-screen cable TVs and vibrant decor were well-cleaned and more than adequately comfy for a stopover. Budget-conscious reviewers frequently said they got decent value for money as the room rates were usually affordable.

Upbeat about customer service

Guests were upbeat about the pleasant, professional and obliging members of staff, who made check-in quick and easy. Those travelling with their furry friends appreciated the way pets could stay in selected rooms.

Negative Reviews

Charges for Wi-Fi were disappointing

It disappointed many guests that they had to stump up a small additional charge in order to use the Wi-Fi network. Some critics claimed the network speeds and coverage were underwhelming at times.

Cleanliness and maintenance could have been better

Maintenance and cleanliness grumbles from guests in several rooms focussed on interruptions to the hot water supply, inadequately cleaned linens, bathrooms that could have been more thoroughly cleaned and lingering musty smells.

Critics found flaws in certain rooms

Several critics commented that they found some of the rooms quite small, especially when fully occupied. Others wished there had been little extras provided such as ironing facilities, toiletries and fridges to make their stays more comfortable.
