Scared off and didn't execute our reservation. No pool. Scary neighborhood. Bleak setting. Didn't seem that anything was as advertised. Recommend you just roll on through. Not as advertised, and seemingly under renovation.

This is one of the lower price motels in the area. There are reasons for that. The carpet looks stained, the bedding is dated. The sheets were pink. The room smelled old and musty. If you are out of options and need to stay here see if you can get on the second floor. It might be a little dryer.

My husband stayed here for two nights on a recent trip to Louisiana. His report of the hotel was "very good". The room was comfortable and clean. The inn is located on a major thoroughfare in Alexandria and is not far from the local mall and many restaurants. Continental breakfast was available and the staff was pleasant and helpful. Can't...

This property wasn't bad, it just wasn't what we expected. We were blessed with a room that had been remodeled. Fresh paint, shampooed carpet, new light fixtures, new tile in the bathroom and a curved shower rod! I do like that curved shower rod. The room was clean though it did have an odd smell. We sprayed air freshener and...

Stayed here for 1 night in Alexandria and it was very average for $65 a night. WIFI didn't work and that the lady in Reception didn't know when a laundry was (across the road) were both a little annoying. Very average, but not even close to being a great value inn. That they call the chain "America's Best Value Inn"...

My husband and stopped for the night during a long drive and it was reasonable. We paid $62 for a room with a king bed. The mattresses were old and needed replaced, the bathroom smelled a bit and was overall shabby. It was clean and that was important. The pool was nice but could've used a cleaning. The desk clerk...

First of all, Hotwire needs to get a clue and not rate this as a 2 star. Second, this property is poorly maintained, extremely unkempt and not desirable in the least. Despite making it clear that there was 3 in the room in my reservation with Hotwire, charged me an additional $22.00 to have a room with 2 beds, clearly...

Rusty railings, uneven walkways, dirty bathroom, roaches, loud neighbors beating their kids, a car broken into - We had to wait for the cops to finish interviewing the victim to check in. We only stayed in the room 2 hours, and had to leave. For this, we were not given a refund. This was through PRICELINE. Someone needs to have...
