Sportsman's Motel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Simmesport
Reviewed 23 October 2013 via mobile

We decided to try this motel (a) because it is the only one in Simmesport and (b) to give it the benefit of the doubt. Unfortunately, it appeared as though our sheets had not been laundered at all or had been insufficiently laundered. Lots of human hair on the sheets! Also, there was a big gap between the air conditioner and the wall, requiring us to use duct tape to keep mosquitoes out. The air conditioner filter needs to be cleaned -- very bad smell when it's running. In addition, someone else's food was left in the mini-fridge. If this is your only option for a place to stay, it would be better to sleep in your car.

Stayed: October 2013

My son and I finished an unsupported cross country bike trip this summer. It took us along the southern tier of the USA and we followed a route provided by Adventure Cycling. It was a beautiful ride and a great adventure but it often took us to places with few to no lodging opportunities. When in Simmesport, La the Sportsman Motel was the only place for 50 miles in either direction. It was one of the most memorable nights of our trip. Simmesport was perhaps the poorest, shadiest (not because of the trees) and scary places we passed through on our entire 2600 mile trip. We brought mace on our trip because when biking you are frequently chased by dogs, and its helpful to have mace velcro'd to the bike just in case. When staying at the Sportsman Motel we actually slept with the mace next to our bed - unfortunately not because of the dogs but because of the people around town. The "convenience" store next door has a larger selection of (drug) smoking pipes than soda or potato chips. If you are biking across America or run out of gas in Simmesport LA, I would recommend the Sportman Motel - the only place to stay - literally!
