“Wow, this place needs some sprucing up”
Reviewed 1 November 2012

We've stayed at several Hilton Garden Inns, and they are usually pretty consistently nice. This one was definitely not in that category. The room was not very clean and we had a bed that wasn't made up very nicely (bedskirt was torn and crooked) a very dirty shower, long black hairs on the door of the bathroom and a dirty mirror.

The bed was comfortable, though, but I woudn't stay again.

dottxs, thank you for your response. Please accept my sincerest apologies for your atypical stay at our hotel. I have used your feedback to help coach our team to ensure that you always receive the best experience. We also have new bedskirts on order that should arrive shortly to help complete our renovation. I would love for you to visit us the next time you come to Lafayette and let us show you that this was not a normal experience for our guests. If I can help you plan that trip, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at the property.

There wasn’t one single problem. I haven’t got one single complaint. The location is great. It is across the street from the Cajun Dome. I can’t tell you how nice it was to skip traffic and parking issues and just trot across the street to go see Eric Church play there. There are plenty of food choices, strip malls and whatever else you might need close by. The have a huge parking lot and side entrances to make it convenient.

Everyone at the hotel was very helpful and friendly. Big smiles and more than helpful each and every time. Everyone always greeted us with a hello, and how are you today. I did not see a single grumpy employee. The maids come pretty early to clean the rooms and do a great job. If you had an issue with anything I am sure this hotel would do it’s best to solve it. I got the impression that customer service is a huge priority there. I would give the staff gold stars.

The room was clean. There was a sitting area and large desk. The Bed is adjustable so we could both set the firmness of our individual side of the king bed. Lots of lighting and closet space. There is a massage shower head and no hot water issues. They give you plenty of towels. The shampoo/conditioner/and lotion/mouthwash they provided and stocked daily and were very nice. The fridge and microwave came in very handy. There is a coffee maker ect.. but they have complementary coffee/ice t in the lobby and after a couple days I decided I preferred to go get a cup and bring it back up to room instead of making it. We were more than comfortable during our stay.

There is a sort of convenience store by the front desk. It is well stocked with juice/pop/munchies/snacks/toiletries ect. If they don’t have it I am sure they would be more than happy to point you in the right direction. They have a laundry room. (need quarters). The gym is clean and machines looked great. Ah I have yet to ever exercise on a vacation.. but for those that do I am sure you would be pleased with the equipment. The pool and hot tub area looked great, as did the business center. The lobby has comfortable seating and a relaxing atmosphere. We never had breakfast there but many people were doing so and the food looked good.

This is a CLEAN Hotel in a Great LOCATION ran by First Class Employees and WE have no idea how anyone could stay there and not feel welcome and convinced they had picked the perfect hotel to stay in while in Lafayette.

I own my own business and I travel on a weekly basis all over the country. When in Lafayette, I ONLY stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Cajundome! Here is why:
1. The staff focuses on making you feel welcome and comfortable. They understand that travel is draining and they go out of their way to make you feel special. It is nice to be recognized when I arrive! If I lived here, these are people that I would like to be friends with!
2. The hotel is clean and attractive. They have installed some new decorative elements in the lobby and housekeeping is on the ball!
3. I rarely sleep well in hotels, but I always get a good nights sleep here at the HGI! I am thinking about buying the same mattress for my bed at home!
4. Even though I said it already, it goes back to the people they have here. For me, the people are the difference! I just want to give a shout out to the front desk staff that look out for me (thanks for the cookies Melanie!).

Room Tip: All rooms are good. Even the ones by the elevator are good. You don't hear the elevator at all...

This hotel is literally across the street form the CajunDome, so if you have an event there, its perfect. It's a 10 minute drive to the mall, which is surprisingly large and every chain restaurant is within 10-15 minutes, as well as a WalMart and Sam's. While it looks like Johnston Street is your best best for commercial sites, actually Ambassador Caffrey is much better.

I wish they had a breakfast buffet included, but their little lobby restaurant is shockingly good and reasonably priced.

We had an amazing experience at this hotel, which we stayed at on July 20th! I had a room already booked at another local hotel for my daughter and a few friends for her birthday, but had to immediately leave due to their horrible uncleanliness! Garden was able to take us on a spur of the moment phone call and immediately accommodate our crew! My daughter loved the indoor pool, which was clean and not smothering us in heat this time of year in the south. The staff was very accommodating! Some of my daughter's friends began eating breakfast not knowing it was not continental, and the staff dismissed our bill due to the accident! Overall, our stay was easy, clean, and memorable! We loved it and will be back!
