1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

A total of 7 cars in the parking lot. The room smelled of smoke, after in bed noticed an ash tray turned upside down on the night stand and another on a table. So my non-smoking room wasn't a non-smoking room. The check-in clerk, with her two kids in the lobby, didn't follow my request. Was going to make in-room coffee but the coffee pot and holder was so filthy I wouldn't use it. I took it to the morning clerk and complained about my supposedly non-smoking room. Said it was a non-smoke room - funny about the ash trays and burn marks in the night stand plus the smell of tobacco. - he was clueless but innocent to the management of this hotel. Won't stay at any Wyndam hotels if anything else is available.

The staff, was very good, and more then willing to help when asked.
The rooms need updating, Especially the bath rooms.

The manager and staff were friendly, hospitable and very professional. The rooms were clean and comfortable. I will stay there my next trip to Louisiana.

Upon the entering the Motel, the front desk attendant was very kind and the lobby/breakfast clean. After check in and then heading to the room, you could tell the hallways were vacuumed; It appeared nice. As for the room itself, it was God awful. Whoever the laundry person is, he/she needs to be replaced. Body hairs were found on our sheets, the comforter stained; so we pulled off the linens...just to find that under the fitted sheets were stains of what appeared to be dried urine! We were extrememly exhausted and slept on top of the beding. Another issue were large ROACHES (2) dead in the corner.
