“Hotel in decline”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

The small and the big: first, the desk clerk checked me into a room that had not been cleaned and had dirty linen in piles all over the room. Redirected to a cleaned room, I found it spacious and pretty quiet with a window on to Jefferson Street (or Rue de Jefferson, as the Acadian's like to say) but getting dingier by the day. The carpet needed replacing. Not until the second day when they had not cleaned the room at all the first day, did I understand why it was so important to clean the room. It smelled like a wet dog had been sleeping on it for a very long time. Whatever room spray hotel housekeepers used had effectively covered that smell for 12 hours. Then the desk clerk referred me down the street to a breakfast restaurant that was not open at all. Oh, after the room had not been cleaned after the first night and I asked about that, the desk clerk replied, "Oh, I'll remind them to do it tomorrow." Not, Holy Mackerel! That should not happen. Sorry. I'll get someone up there right away or we can change your room." At any rate, its convenient and boutique and you want it to be lovely - but its not.

Room Tip: Consider a room on the back side of the hotel away from the central open area on the second floor an...

Unless you don't mind staying on a very busy road this is probably the best place to stay in Lafayette. On the plus side the rooms are huge, and it gets all the basics right, comfy bed, good shower, coffee in room etc. The downside is there is no bar, restaurant or coffee shop. There is however a great diner a few blocks away and a few bars in walking distance. Not sure they can justify their room rate or maybe the rate was higher because of the mardi gras parades.

I remember this place when it was an antique store way back in the 1980's and before that when a dress shop occupied the first floor when I was in college at USL in the 1970's. What it's turned into is a lovely little hotel. The room placement on the top floor is unique in mostly a good way. However, the walls are a bit thin. The first time hubs and I stayed there a few years ago, the couple next door played their iPod LOUDLY to try to cover the noise of their lovemaking. Didn't quite do the job. So I played the TV LOUDLY early the next morning. LOL

For the most part, the rooms are lovely, bathtubs are gigantic and the staff is very accommodating. We've made reservations for next year's Mardi Gras weekend. (Feb. 28, 2014 to March 2, 2014) The Juliet is right in the middle, if you want to go to the parade or get ready for the Krewe Ball, it's the place to be.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the lower digits. They face Jefferson St. where there is more to look at.

This hotel was suggested as a boutique hotel in Lafayette, La.
The hotel description was far from what I expected. The building is a odd looking and not very curb appealing. The rooms are spacious and clean, beds were not very comfortable at all, sink was in the bedroom are. Surrounded by parking lots. Staff was friendly but very inexperienced.
Would not recommend this hotel to females traveling alone or anyone expecting to experience a boutique hotel. I would rate this hotel for business people wanting a clean room downtown Lafayette at a fair price.

Room Tip: The hotel only has two floors - all facing the street or empty parking lots. Be aware The AC makes...

We came to Lafayette from New Orleans to visit our son who attends ULL. We stayed at the Juliet Hotel because the bed & breakfast we usually stay was booked. The hotel was ok, our room was ok; not very well soundproofed because we could hear people talking and a tv on late in the evening. The shower didn't have any place to put shampoo or soap which was rather odd. The a/c unit and/or the thermostat were not working properly because the unit would not "turn off" so we simple unplugged the a/c unit. Batteries needed to be replaced in the tv remote. The staff was friendly but I think the cost of the hotel is higher than the return.

On our way from New Orleans to Austin we wanted to stop in Lafayette for one night. We choosed Juliet Hotel because it was the only hotel i the down town area.
I don´t have anything to complain about. Everything was nice. Not super great, but nice. Room is big and clean. The sink was outside the bathroom which was a little odd, but that could just be me.
We had dinner just outside the hotel at "The filling station" Great place! And very close to home.
Parking is free.
