"Return to Lake Charles"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Apr 9, 2014
Frank D | San Antonio, TX, United States
My stay at the LaQuinta was a good one. A new hotel with few draw backs. Good Stay. Bath tub needed extra attention around the grout. Had mold in the cornors. Room was large and had everthing needed for a good stay, except a nice choice of channels on the cable. Very limited as to sports and movies. Heavy on the local channels. Didn't need 6 local channels.

Everything at this Hotel was excellent except for the fact that the poolside hot tub was not functional. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Service personnel were very accommodating. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The facility was clean and centrally located to area attractions. The fitness center was well cared for and well equipped.

I have stayed here 3 times and have never had a dirty room. The rooms are a great size and have a microwave and fridge. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The breakfast is good. I would like to see them put a smoking patio in the rear of the hotel with a table to accommodate smokers instead of smoking at the front door.

manager took time to show me the rooms. I Was in town for a state Basketball tournament wher you don't know if your team is going to play another day. Other hotels required 24 hr cancellation and her it was you could do it before you check out in the morning. That was big no matter what cost. Severe weather the night we would have left. Others experienced rain and several wrecks along the way home while wew were safely in our rooms enjoying the down time. Will be back here when I am in Lake Charles next time!

"A Comfortable Stay with Nice Staff"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Mar 14, 2014
Johnna C | Bossier City, Louisiana
When I got to the hotel, their computers were down which caused a delay in the check-in process. Manager Alicia Boutte to the rescue! Folr those of us waiting to check-in, she developed a quick Plan B and had me in my room in no time. The ceilings are high in the rooms and gives you a sense of old south. The breakfast had a variety of items and was good. I've stayed here at least 3 times and did not have a bad experience on any trip.
