“Pay a little more and stay at Comfort Inn”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

The staff was friendly enough, but the whole place seems a little sketchy. The room felt dirty and stale. I am glad we only were staying one night while traveling through Lousiana. We had a good sleep and wanted to get an early start the next morning, so we thought we would try the complimentary breakfast......all four of us took one look at the offerings and said lets go down the street to IHOP!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

We stayed overnight at the Econo Lodge in Natchitoches while in town for our daughter to do some testing at LSMSA. It is located close to I 49, no interstate noise inside the hotel. Ample parking for larger vehicles.The rate was 79.99 with tax. The receptionist was friendly and the lobby was clean and updated. The hallways show some wear and there was a ciggarette smell lingering in a few areas of the hall way. The elevator worked with no problem. Our room on the second floor was clean, no smell of smoke inside. Bedspreads were worn but sheets were crisp and smelled clean. Bathroom was clean, fixtures were older. There was a window seat which had a cushion on it that can be used as an extra sleeping space for a child, my son slept there rather than share with his sister. The beds were comfortable. Not noisy at all in the hallway. The air conditioner was a little loud when it kicked on during the night but cooled the room well. My son swam in the small pool, pool area was clean and water was clear, there were some missing tiles but otherwise in pretty good repair. They do provide pool towels. The breakfast was ok. They have muffins, 2 types of cereal, packages of oatmeal, bread and bagels for toasting, hardboiled eggs, frozen sausage biscuits, and a waffle maker. The food was fine. The juices and coffee were gross and tasted watered down. Check out was quick and easy. Overall decent hotel, 5 minutes from Northwestern Campus, about 10 minutes drive at the most to Downtown. I think 79.99 is a little high for this place, but better than paying 110 plus tax for the Best Western across the interstate.

I was worried about staying at an econolodge, I was very wrong. This hotel is clean, well kept, and comfortable. I wish I could have taken the bed home. I was impressed by the great customer service however I had no problems with anything. Everything was better than I could have hoped for. Thanks for a great stay.

The rooms are small and dirty. Two guys on the crew kept getting bitten by something in their beds (does not appear to be bed bugs). One room had a black mold growing on the mattress cover and another had black mold growing on the pictures in the room. We left after two days, which was about 48 hours too long.

I had to stay overnight in natchitoches, and picked this econo lodge. I only needed a place to sleep so I didn't need much. From the second I walked in the door, until I stepped out of the door, the staff was very accommodating and delightful. The room was cool when I stepped in, which is a plus living in Louisiana. I had everything I needed. The towels were smaller, but that was expected. I really cannot complain. I would definitely stay again should the need arise.

Absolutely unbelievable ! Very good hotel and price. Nice people too.
Well located , far from highway. Furniture is so new you're afraid to scratch it.
In ten days this was the best.
No restaurant but who cares when you have such a room.
