Howard Johnson Lafayette
Ranked #35 of 50 Hotels in Lafayette
Reviewed 14 June 2011

The HJ is clean and quiet. The location is great for getting to all of the dance venues. There is an Albertson's nearby for food and drink. The rooms all have fridges and microwaves, which come in handy, especially for longer stays.

We stayed here for 5 nights while visiting our son. The room was large and the bed very comfortable! It was nice having a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot too! The hotel sits back off the road a little bit which helps with traffic noise. It was nice because it's family run so you see the owners every day instead of different people all the time. We will definitely stay there again the next time we need a room in Lafayette!

I researched this hotel befoe booking and most of the reviews were right on. We stayed at this Ho Jo for 5 nights from dec 27 2010 until Jan 1 2011. Wheb we first entered the room I couldn't believe it, it smeeled clean not like a hotel clean but like you just cleaned your house. the room was spacious, had a fridge, microwave, coffee pot, the tv had many channels. The bed was firm but nice and thebathroom was clean and inviting. I don't think you could find a better room for the price. (approx $55.00). The next time we travel to Lafayette we will stay here again.

As several others have pointed out, the made-over room was very nice. And it was a terrific value for $60 (weeknight). We only stayed one night but liked the close proximity to I-10, yet it was far enough away from the highway (about a mile North) to not hear it through the night. There are several good restaurants nearby (we ate at Prejeans) and there was a nice Lafayette area Visitors Center about a mile to the south on Evangeline Thruway. The Continental Breakfast was very basic, but there was plenty choices when we arrived about 8:15 AM.

The only thing that can be construed as a criticism is the water in the shower/tub was not as hot we would have wished.

I'm not a big fan of HoJo properties as I've been sadly disappointed more than satisfied when I've stayed with them. I read a variety of reviews about this property and most folks said it is a great property - I completely agree. We spent five nights at this motel and for comfort and cleanliness, it ranks right at the top. The family that owns and operates the motel have pride in their property - and it shows. We had a super AARP rate and for even double the price, this motel would be a find. Having visited Lafayette a number of times and stayed in a variety of motels - this is the best of the lot. We will definitely her on our next visit to Lafayette

Upon making the reservation with my company I was advise to stay in a more "reputable hotel" but I decided against it. I have to say that from the moment I pulled in to the moment I left I was blown away! I recently paid more than double to stay in a hotel that was no where near as clean and nice as this one! I am not one to write reviews as I tell myself I am always too busy BUT these people fully deserve a pat on the back for a job well done! I will be staying in Lafayette once a week and I will book this Howard Johnson everytime I am there..family friendly as well! Proof that you don't have to spend a fortune to stay somewhere nice! FYI for the people liek me who tote the xbox360 everywhere..nice component connection TV'`s in the room as well!
