Located less than 15 minutes from the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport and with easy direct access to Interstate-10, families can appreciate the easy of reaching attractions like the Baton Rouge Zoo and Blue Bayou Waterpark and Dixie Landin’ when staying at this Holiday Inn. Kids under 19 years old stay free at this hotel when staying in the same room as a parent. Pets are welcome to stay for a fee as well. So the whole family can enjoy the outdoor swimming pool and surrounding lounge chairs. There is also a cocktail lounge near the pool. The spacious guestrooms feature a separate sitting area with a sleeper sofa, a mini-fridge, microwave, iPod docking station and free Wi-Fi so the whole family can stay connected while visiting Baton Rouge. The on-site restaurant, the Sporting News Grill, serves up delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner. Check in is at 4 p.m. and check out is at 11 a.m.

Upon arriving staff was ok, nothing special. Room was nice, and clean. Hotel has pool and gym (which we did use). Also has a restaurant but seems poorly run and a limited menu. We ate at the Chili's close by. There is also a Ruth Chris Steakhouse next door. Good hotel for a couple nights stay which is what we did. Next to the highway which helps.
Don’t know where the good reviews are coming from this was one of the worst hotels that I and my family have ever stayed in. I strongly believe that they have someone manipulating the reviews as my experience was matched by the two other couples on the elevator: Filthy room, bathroom, beds, grossly stained carpets, really just all bad and the worst experience.
