Having never been to Baton Rouge or anywhere in Louisiana for that matter, we found the hotel on a website and booked our 3 night stay. The most cost effective rooms that were listed and that which we booked were not nice. There was lingering smoke from previous guests and the room had not been cleaned well. There was debris on the carpet and it appeared that it had not vacuumed. So we went to the front desk and the only other option was to pay an additional $25.00 per night to upgrade. We were assigned another room in the main building over the lobby/lounge area. This room was quite warm when we entered so we turned on the air conditioning and within moments, the carpet was wet near the air conditioning. We called the front desk and were given yet another room. Three rooms in less than 3 hours. The outside pool and hot tub (or maybe it was a kiddie pool?) were drained and roped off. The breakfast buffet was good and the servers were nice. The elderly hostess at the breakfast buffet restaurant said she had been there for many, many years. She was very sweet. The hotel itself is in need of upgrades and it appears that some of that is going on. Decent place to stay for the money. Close to major roads.
