“Not that comfortable.”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

Coming from the west, getting into the hotel parking lot is difficult because of a one-way. The hotel is right off the highway on the service road, but with no access from the service road! The hotel was right in front of us, and after a long drive we did not want to deal with trying to figure out how to get there legally, so we braved going the wrong way on a one way for a 100 feet.

Once my family arrived, the person at the front desk said, "didn't you already check-in?" and showed me a paper with a signature that he thought was mine. When I assured him that that was not my signature, he seemed very confused and had me and my two tired children wait for 15 minutes while he found a room. The room he gave us was a standard instead of the suite we had reserved, but the fee was $10 less than quoted. He did not ask us if a change in room type was acceptable.

When we arrived at the room, it was clean enough, but we slept poorly because of ludicrously small pillows (almost like the ones on planes) and a small comforter that came off of our feet all night.

The air conditioner cooled the room well, but was very noisy at times. I don't mind the white noise of an air conditioner, but this was more of a loud groaning that came off and on.

The breakfast was the standard fare, which just isn't ever that great these kinds of motels. I will say that the scrambled eggs were cooked better than most.

This place is not horrible, and the price seems to be in the same range as others near it, but we were just not that comfortable and would try a different place next time.

I enjoyed visiting this property. The guest service was efficient, kind, and competent. They had a free night time snack. The location was good for getting to the University and many other places in town. The breakfast was decent. I would come again.

We booked this at the last minute and got a Louisiana Tech student rate. Everyone was so friendly from the front desk, housekeepers, maintenance, and breakfast person. Very clean, modern, and quiet too. Breakfast was delicious also. Will definitely stay here every time I am in Ruston.

Spent the night here for the July 4 holiday (our second stay at this particular hotel) and was equally as impressed this time as the last. During the week they have a snack and drink reception from 5-7 pm, along with the breakfast every morning (the waffle maker had the Saints logo so you could have a beautiful waffle to look at). And the pool was something my girls enjoyed a lot. The staff was nice as well. They also gave you a free local newspaper and USA Today.

We were happy to find a vacancy at nearly 3:00am on the weekend before July 4. Not expecting much, we pulled into the Sleep in and were pleasantly surprised. It is a nice hotel inside and out.
Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable, and cool. The beds were great and I slept like a baby (no easy feat). I would definitely stay here again. Well done, Sleep Inn - Ruston.

Stayed here one night an liked it. No complaints about the clean room. Nice decor, comfy bed. Our room was on the back side so we didnt hear any interstate noise.

Breakfast was OK but not great. They do have hot items like eggs and sausage, plus make your own fresh waffles. Nice breakfast area.

Dislikes: Old and stale danish pastries. Not so fesh biscuits. We were at breakfast for 30 minutes and place was full. From even before we got there and after we left, both trash cans were full to the top. It was hard to trhow anything cause u almost had to push w your hand. That is unpleasant. An employee came in and threw a cup in the FULL trash and left.
