The hotel is located on a wide road a couple of miles out of DownTown Houma. Across the street, there is an outdoor shopping area and there are a good few national chain restaurants nearby. We stayed here for three nights whilst visiting friends in the area. The grounds are quite large and there is free parking for guests surrounding the building. At the back of the hotel, there is a high wooden fence which separates the hotel from a residential area (more on that below).
The reception area is compact and our welcome from the staff was functional. All rooms and interior public areas are non-smoking. There is a health and fitness centre, outdoor pool, and complimentary WiFi throughout.
Rooms are very spacious, clean, and appeared fairly new and modern, although the carpet just inside the room entrance appeared a little soiled. The bed, in particular, was excellent. Standard equipment including TV, coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator, iron, hairdryer etc., were all present and correct. The hotel and rooms are air-conditioned throughout.
The hotel was fairly quiet whilst we were there and we noted little or no disturbance from other guests.
There is a restaurant and bar. We did not take dinner. Breakfast is available on an a la carte basis. There was a reasonable section and standard was good enough. As members of the chain’s loyalty programme, we were offered a couple of complimentary alcoholic drinks at the bar. (I understand this offer is not available on Friday nor Saturday).
In summary, then, if you have cause to be in this area, this hotel represents a good choice and beds, in particular, are very comfortable. If your reason for being here is in DownTown Houma, then you will need to drive or use a taxi etc., although I did note a public bus service operating nearby which offers service during the daytime only.
Finally, a note for some GPS (SatNav) users: The GPS I was using insisted on directing us into the residential area mentioned above. Whilst in strict geo-positioning terms, it did bring us right to the hotel’s location, it placed us at the other side of the wooden fence that separates the hotel from the residential area, and there is no access for a vehicle nor on foot from one to the other. Whilst that may be a quirk unique to the system I was using, I recommend that anyone wishing to find this hotel refer to a regular map (perhaps obtained online) on arrival at the outskirts of the town to ensure you drive along Martin Luther King Blvd. (If arriving from the north along rote 24, watch for “Rouse’s” supermarket on the right, and make a partial right turn at the intersection.)
