This is a standard chain "suite" hotel. It is located on a commercial strip in close driving distance to local attractions, New Iberia's "downtown", and freeways. There are various chain restaurants and fast food joints close by (even within walking distance, though you'd be walking along the highway). It is literally across the street from the local tourism information building.
We stayed at the hotel for one night, having booked online earlier that day. Not surprisingly for a suite hotel it seems to be a favorite of out-of-town oil and construction workers. There is a lot of free parking. The front desk staff was not very effusive but they were competent and efficient.
The room was a small suite (well stocked kitchenette, large bathroom, recliner chair). It was quiet, clean and modern, and overall it was comfortable. Some (minor) complaints about our particular room: the handle for the recliner chair was broken, so reclining was difficult; the "free wifi" only worked in the lobby, so no wifi in our room (probably a weak signal that could be fixed with a couple of cheap repeaters); only one side of the bed had a bedside table. These are all very minor annoyances, and they didn't really affect our stay in this hotel.
For the price and the location I'd stay here again.
