Holiday Inn Express Breaux Bridge (Lafayette Area)

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 April 2012

We arrived late and found the small parking lot dimly lit, several unsavory characters wandered around the lot. But after 12 hours of driving we had to stop and rest. We entered a lobby that was bright and clean, and made us feel somewhat safer. We got to the room, which was big and comfortable. The bed was rather lumpy and not too comfortable. The air conditioner vent was dusty. It was extremely hard to sleep, as the hotel is right on the interstate. We rested our bodies, I don't think either one of us slept all night. We got up the next morning and had a hot breakfast, tried to do some work on the computer, but the wi-fi failed miserably. The staff was nice enough, but I don't think we will stay at this hotel again.

On behalf of the hotel I would like to thank you for choosing to stay with us. We appreciate you pointing a few things out for us and I would like to let you know that they have all been addressed. We know that our location may seem a little noisy but it is very easy to get on and off the interstate with a lot of local food with in walking distance. New bed pads have been ordered for our mattress that are less then two years old to help them last long and be more comfortable for our guests. The WiFi is no longer DSL but cable internet set as primary for the guest's use. The weekend night that you were here we were very busy with the Local Boat Races that were in Catahoula. It is my understanding that the races were well into the late afternoon which made the guest staying with us come back late that night. I spoke to our security guard and he said that he noted no security issues that weekend.

We are glad that you found the rooms large and comfy and that you got to enjoy the hot breakfast in the morning.
We would love to welcome you back to Cajun Country when ever you are passing through again!

Ideally located right off the 10, this new hotel is great. I paid abt $100 per night thru Travelocity and that included free wi-fi and a really nice breakfast buffet. Clean, new, nice decorated, roomy room. Great bathroom with hairdryer, double sinks. Nice flat screen tv. Pool. The a/c is a little loud, but very effective. Free USA Today in the lobby. Chocolate chip cookies and lemonade at 4 in the afternoon. The free breakfast is not just a continental breakfast. The menu changes from day to day, but includes juices, coffee, tea, oatmeal, 4 cereals, yogurt, milk (including fat free), hard boiled eggs, bread for toast, english muffins, muffins, bagels, a pancake machine, plus scrambled eggs or omelet, bacon or sausage, and fresh warm sweet rolls. Two huge beds with 4 pillows (firm and soft) on each bed. Really a great deal. We loved it.

We stayed here overnight en route on a couples trip. We were worn out from driving, late cold raining.

Upon checking in at a $100/nite rate we were given a free dessert coupon for the Landry Next Door.(after an lousy over priced meal our dessert was given to another table because we ordered expensive appitizers instead of a cheap burger "Entree")

The place was seriously worn and dirty. We switched rooms twice. Regardless the towels were rough as steel wool,the plumbing clanked and spurted water, the TV selection was sad, some channels had no sound, We both has swollen sinuses due to the filthy AC Unit.
The nest day we woke up exhausted and sore from the lumpy bed.

Even the parking lot was creepy.

I know it is not the employees fault but it was insulting that he offered $10 bucks off our stay, Which was not even taken off the bill.

Never again.

We stayed here while visiting Breaux Bridge.. Loved it! Nice room.. super friendly staff.. Great breakfast.. The best part was the big cozy bed after a long day on your feet antiquing, swamp touring w/ Cajun Country Swamp Tours and dancing the night away at Mulate's (which is now called Pont Breaux [literally Breaux Bridge in French])! I love the fact they give you plenty of pillows and the bed was soft, yet firm! We will always stay here when we come!

We had to make an unplanned stop along the way, and this was the closest option. We were lucky! Everything was perfect. The front desk staff was amazing, and the room was large, clean and comfy. We especially appreciated the great matress after a stressful day. The next morning, the breakfast was good, and the lady staffing the breakfast room was lovely.

Thank you Holiday Inn Express for helping us get home!

Stayed here for 1 night while traveling in Louisiana.A great hotel with EXCEPTIONAL STAFF! The staff at the desk were VERY friendly and helpful. There was no guest laundry but it was all done and folded for us by staff for a small gratuity. Great breakfast and it looked to have a great pool. Would HIGHLY reccommend this hotel to anyone.Wish every hotel stay could be this enjoyable! Also very reasonably priced!
