We stayed here for one night whilst passing through Lafayette on our way to New Orleans. The room itself was of a good size and was comfortable and clean, there was a microwave and fridge too, and free wi fi. It was a little noisey as it is close to the highway. The room price included a 'hot' breakfast, but...

Dear traveler, We agree that there is more noise at times from I-10 and regretably we can't do anything about that. In regards to the breakfast, we always have eggs, sausage, grits, waffles, toast in addition to danish,cereal, milk, juice and coffee. Hopefully it was not a time issue; however, we do apologize that everything was not offered to you....

My husband reserved a room for us at the America Best Value Inn in Lafayette, La. When we arrived at the hotel the front desk clerk told us that we would have to pay again. We had already paid Hotel.com $156.78 for a room for two nights. The desk clerk charged our debit card two more times. Now this hotel...

Dear traveler, We apologized for the double charge on your card. We did have a new desk clerk that simply made a mistake. Your second charge has been refunded and we have increased the training for all desk clerks. We hope you will give us another try if you are in our area again. Thank you, Management

The staff was pleasing and helpful. The room I stayed in which was 132 has very thin walls. When the air conditioner stops blowing (which I do not like), you could hear our neighbors TV, road noise and the people above us on the balcony at 12:30am. There is no security, but the desk did call the room above and...

Do not be fooled by the beautifully appointed lobby!!! I swear, this place is an over-priced, filthy pit. We stopped there on April 27, 2012 during a cross-country trip and paid over $100 for the room with two double beds. One of the reasons we stayed there was because it was given the best rating America's Best Value Inns gives...
