Hubby and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Holiday Inn. When I first walked in the room I was struck by the architectural design and how huge the room is. We had the King Jacuzzi suite and it's everything anyone could want to make them feel like a King (and Queen). Petula at the front desk is super friendly...

Located right on I-10, very convenient to all of Lake Charles and surrounding area. Good breakfast, newspapers, very quiet, peaceful night. Staff is friendly, no complaints. Only issue in leaving parking lot is tht you can not get direct access to I-10, have to do a couple of u-turns.

We stayed there last night and it was nice, clean, and a great value for the money, but the most impressive thing was how friendly and helpful the staff members were. Petula was the lady at the front desk when we checked in and she was very nice and even helped us as we worked on our plans for the...

This hotel is excellently located just off I-10 in Lake Charles with easy access to the interstate. It is not brand new, but it is fairly new and well appointed with an expansive lobby, the usual free breakfast and a very nice interior (I love the wide hallways and the beautiful carpeting in the hallways and the pleasant music in...

This is certainly a "newish" Express and well located for the I-10 corridor through town with easy access whether traveling east or west. The breakfast was a little disappointing, but acceptable. I do have a slight concern about security outside at night.

I stayed here for a night on business. I did not book the hotel and probably would not have chosen this location due to location. With that said, hotel was clean, staff was extremely nice! There was a strong smell that I didn't like that stuck on my clothes. It wasn't a rotten smell or anything it was I guess...

Very nice property. What's really special is the personnel that go out of their way. Good eggs for breakfast without that nasty cheese product most HI properties add. Greeted we it a good bag and smile. Glad we stayed.

Convenient, right off I-10. It's south of I-10, and the GPS wants to take you north on MLK. It's quiet, but only easily accessible of MLK Northbound. You can get to it from the SB direction, but only with either a U-turn or entry from the backside. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was standard buffet fare. Room was...

Short stop in Lake Charles while travelling back to Atlanta. The hotel is very new, but the staff was excellent and seemed experienced. We felt welcome from the time we walked in to the time we left the next morning.
