“Very Old and Dirty”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2011

I stayed here in a pinch, but it was very old and dirty. Hope they are not paying someone to clean because they are obvioulsy not doing their job. There are several other motels around the area that are probably a lot better. Will not stay there again or recommend for my worst enemy.

I needed to stay in Lake Charles, LA, but the Comfort Inn was booked up as were other hotels in Lake Charles proper. I decided to make the trek to Sulpher and stay there. The hotel appears to have had a recent facelift, but didn't smell new on the inside, not that it smelled bad, just the stale hotel smell. The room and bathroom were clean. My air-conditioner worked well (in a humid Louisiana August). I had plenty of room to park my F250 and 20' trailer. There are a number of buffet style eating places around, and that is why I am keeping it in mind as my alterntate destination if there is no room availability in Lake Charles. It does also appear that many work crews use this hotel as a lodging base for a lot of the contract work around. The limited breakfast was not available for me. It left at 0600; breakfast began at 0630. Night desk service was better than morning desk service.

Wireless internet works good, lets you on free for 8 hours at a time.

Best to get a second floor room, because on the ground floor, you can hear every little noise in the room above you. I asked for a quiet room, but as is often the case, no such luck. Somehow you can always count on other guests to be inconsiderate. The people above me got in after 11pm and didn't finally quiet down until 1am. Then at 6am they were up again. The guy at the front desk couldn't seem to do anything for me. They don't have actual king fitted sheets, and I get itchy so I think there could be bed bugs here, or the mattresses need changing. Better off taking your money elsewhere.

The only restaurant within walking distance is Wendy's. A short drive and you have many others available.

the weekend. could be 5

for the staff : very helpful.

Gamblers looking to save money stay in Sulphur instead of Lake Charles. This Econo Lodge is on a street with several economy hotels and lots of restaurants. The room was clean but the A/C was sized incorrectly resulting in a cold and clammy atmosphere. Grounds were poor, no pool. For the money I could have done better. Bad atmosphere.

Hotel looks nice in the pictures, but when you arrive you see how rundown the hotel really is. They tried to remodel but did not even clean before painting... Our room was on the second floor the stairwell and walkway leading to the room was in very poor condition (dirty etc). The room was filthy especially the bathroom mold on the floor, bathtub, and shower head... The carpet was dirty and the airconditioner was so noisey you needed ear protection. To sum this up you feel dirty while in the room and do not want to touch anything. The only good thing that I can say about this hotel is the front desk staff made us feel welcome.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2007

I spent the weekend at this Econo Lodge and was quite pleased. The room was clean and quiet and the rate was reasonable. The motel is located at Exit 20, which puts it very close to the casinos (Isle at Exit 27, Delta Downs at Exit 7, LDL nearby). There are also a number of restaurants and convenience stores nearby. The rooms each have a small microwave & 'fridge, and the place has continental breakfast. There's a small bar attached to the motel, so you might want to ask for a room away from the bar. I travel to Lake Charles to go gaming a few times a year and this is now my number one pick in the "budget" category. The place is A-OK.
