Room was very spacious and had everything you could imagine. Full kitchen with lots of heavy sliverware and dishes glasses pots pans 2 burner stove dishwasher. Was fantastic. Beds were comfortable. Management was top-notch. They even had crushed ice waiting for us at the checkin counter. I wanted a cup of Mr Pibb but it was after hours however an employee used her key to turn it on for me and I was able to quinch my Pibb thirst lol. Excellent location. T-Coon's is within walking distance.. fabulous place to eat. The hotel was in a perfect spot between Ambassador Caffery and the airport. Love it.
We stayed here for two nights and were not disappointed. Friendly staff and nicely appointed rooms. It is easy to park outside. Not in the middle of everything but, given Lafayette's small size, that never becomes a problem.
