On the way back to Texas from Gulf Shores area, we stopped off here and asked for a room. The desk clerk was very pleasant and helpful. Speedy, easy check in; were able to park right by the hotel entrance. She recommended a restaurant that turned out to be excellent (Blue Dog Cafe). We were road-weary and opted for the double bed suite room. The room gave plenty of room for a family of 5. Two kids slept on the comfortable-enough pull out sofa bed (linens already in room). The double beds were excellent with sparkling white linens and duvet covers. There were no stains, mold or anything unsightly anywhere in the room. Everything appeared new, right down to the tile grout and caulking in the shower. Marble looking surfaces, nice deep sink in bathroom-no splashing! Good hot water and massage shower head; extra towels readily provided. The suite room provided some separation and two TV's- nice with 3 kids along. Nice butler pantry type area with coffee maker, mini fridge etc.; The lobby of the hotel was beyond excellent- plenty of lovely options for groups to sit together and visit on modern furniture. Only cons: breakfast not included (too bad, looked good; I recommend 50's style Hub City Diner); the too-tiny indoor pool clean, but not appealing, a bit difficult to temperature control the suite room on both sides; no venting in bathroom(?);a tad pricey at $133 with no breakfast included- we possibly could have done better if booked online ahead of time though. If attending a college sporting event, the location could not be beat, as it looks right out over the stadium and dome in front. We enjoyed the pretty college town of Lafayette, our first time to see it.
