Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sunflower19 New on the outside, not on the inside
The hotel was very nice and the lobby and restaurant was very clean. The room we had smelled stale even after we aired the room out. The desk chair looked so shabby that no one wanted to sit in it. The room served it's purpose for our overnight stay and I'd return again.

Ok, we book the hotel with soccer teams. You know we are coming. Also consider there are baseball teams in the hotel. Dining was not prepared. Team would come in for breakfast, would take forever to order, and get food. Second morning could not even order breakfast. Asked to order pizza delivered to hotel for soccer team. Was told no. So you dining area can't handle the business you know you were booked. We try to get food delivered and was told NO. The hotel had no guest service!!! I WILL NOT BE BACK NOR WILL THIS TEAM BOOK THIS HOTEL AGAIN!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by belaire49 Easy Access and great service
I love staying at Holiday Inn's and have been collecting Priority Club points for about three years now. I decided to use them at this particular Holiday Inn. The staff treated us as everyone other Holiday Inn and like paying customer's which felt really great. I was a little worried we'd be hurried along since we were using our points. The place was immaculate, bed comfortable, room clean and beautiful as usual. This particular Holiday Inn has easy access to the 210 loop which is close to the casino, shopping, and general ease of getting around Lake Charles. My son moved about two miles away so this will be our regular place to stay when we vist Lake Charles.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Reg12345 terrible experience
As a Gold Club member, I have to say that this was the worst experience that I've had at a Holiday Inn. The first impression from the foyer was good but it went downhill from there. There were no toiletries in the room at all. I went to the desk and asked for some, and they were delivered about half an hour later. Also, the room backed up to the elevators and the noise kept me up late and woke me up early. I thought it would stop around 10:00 so I did not initially complain or ask for another room. About 10:45 I got frustrated and tried to call the front desk. Neither phone in the room worked. The next morning when I gave them my room key, the lad just said, "Yes, that room is loud." No way to treat a long-term customer. I would not stay there again.

I've never had any problems staying at any IHG no matter location when it has come down to staff. this was my first time staying in a suite & I'm not sure I'll ever do it again. Yes it's very roomy (bathroom, living area, bedroom but what we found in the room was disturbing. There was an old fast food hamburger next to the tv in the living room area, there was shampoo & things in the bathroom from the previous guest including a dirty toliet, & there was dried blood on the pillows & bedding. Not sure if the cleaning staff was having a bad day but this was no way to leave a room no matter what the situation is. The staff was very fast in correcting the problem.

This by far been the best property I have had the privilege to stay at. Staff were very courteous and informative. Overall cleanliness was amazing. Definitely a hotel with pride. After traveling for 12 hours it was great knowing we had a place so welcoming to end our day and start anew the next morning.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Caliexpat Did what I wanted it to
I've stayed here twice now and I'll be back in a few months. It has what I wanted - quiet. It's close to the freeway, but far enough that you don't feel like you are sleeping on the shoulder.
The staff are uniformly wonderful. They go out of their way to make sure you are doing well. They truly make the stay.
The rooms are adequate. The bathroom received a rather cheap cosmetic upgrade some years ago and it looks like it. The beds are great and the choice of pillow firmness is a nice touch.
The resturant is fine for breakfast, okay for lunch and barely adequate for dinner. In fact, except for breakfast, I'd go elsewhere and there are several nice options nearby. For lunch try the Mongolian barbeque just down the road.
All in all a nice stay and a modest price; just what you want and expect from Holidy Inn

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hwaw First Impression was Fantastic
My wife and I were both blown away with the appearance of this place when we walked in the front door. It was beautiful. My wife absolutely loved the location when it came to shopping. Staff was great. It was a business trip, which ended up forcing us to cut our trip short, but we will be back.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by selara13 Terrible Stay
I was very disappointed with my stay at this location. At first arrival I was greeted with courtesy and I was glad I chose this location. But when I got to my room there was a smell that would not go away like a sweaty locker room. I figure it might be because the heat was on, so I was able to manage it. But the second day after a very long day of working, all I wanted to do was relax and eat my dinner. But when I entered my room I was in shock. My bed was not made, no sheets were even left. Garbage was not taken out, none of the towels picked up basically nothing was done. I was up from 5 am to go to work and returned at 6pm. When I called the front desk the so call manager answered like it was not a big deal and acted like I was an inconvience. By then I was angry that I went downstairs and checked out and left to another hotel. All this after a long day at work and all i wanted to do was rest and relax. I will never stay here again and refuse to recommend this site to anyone who wishes to stay the area. I just hope no one else will have to endure what I experienced.
Very Disappointed and Angry Customer

Was awakened by housekeeping staff three times on Sunday morning starting at 8:20 AM. Had a late night out at the casino and did not appreciate getting the door knocked on and then opened by the housekeepers.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JJPgh No recognition or benefits for Platinum member, heat didn't work in room
I'm a Platinum member and travel frequently for business and pleasure. I was overall disappointed in this hotel.
First, there was no recognition for being a Priority Club, or Platinum member. This didn't seem to matter as they do not provide any free breakfast or other amenities for Platinum members. When asked about the benefits, I was told, "Oh, you get late checkout."
The heater in the room also did not work, which made for a very cold night of sleep as the low that night was in the low 30's.

From the time i spoke with the clerk on the phone until I checked out.....I felt as if I was the only one staying there as far as staff went.
Check in was fast and i only reserved the room 2 hours before I was there. The ENTIRE STAFF IS TO BE COMMENDED.
The workers are proud of their property. IT Shows CLEAN-CLEAN and quiet!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CLT512 Just Average
I was disappointed. I read all the wonderful reviews prior to booking a room at this hotel and was expecting a perfect stay. We were greeted very warmly during our check-in and check-out. The staff were all very friendly and seemed to genuinely care about their guests.
I like having a bar and dining options in the hotel itself although we did not make use of either one. The room seemed small and the bathroom was very small. The desk chair in the our room had fabric torn off of the hand rests. There was gum on the carpet right when we walked into the room. The bathroom door opened outward and when the bathroom door was opened it blocked the main entry door.
My disappointment primarily comes in the lack of benefits for Priority Club Platinum Elite members especially with the price we paid for our stay. One perk of the program is an automatic room upgrade upon check-in, which we were not offered. Additionally, other than a "thank you for being a member" and a small bottle of water, there were no other benefits. I travel extensively and have to say that normally in hotels with a bar and/or onsite dining Platinum Elite members typically get a complimentary drink and a complimentary breakfast.
I will probably not stay in this hotel again unless they add some benefits for Priority Club members. I can find accommodations that are just as good at a cheaper price and closer to my destination but I always try to stay at IHC hotels when I can. However, in this case it was not worth it.

The staff makes the stay so wonderful. I really felt special. They gave my block booking a discount and made sure our rooms were close to each other. I will never stay any where else when I visit Lake Charles.

The Staff was friendly and extremely helpful. They even let us check in early, and not wait till 3pm, which was great. The room was very comfortable, and the floor we stayed on was very quiet at night, so sleeping was a dream. The price was great and location to shopping, casino and dining was very good. We will be recommending this to our friends, and returning ourselves.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kman Loved the shower head....
First time staying at this motel and the stay was excellent. Especially loved the shower head in the room. Actually got a good flow of pressurized water out of it (not like a lot of other motels with H2O savers where you can't hardly get wet). Personnel were friendly and room was clean. Only minor complaint was that we didn't know how to raise the temp in the jacuzzi located next to the indoor pool. Water wasn't hot enough for us. Also, had to kill one cockroach in the bathroom the first 5 minutes we were there. Did not see any more anywhere else during our two day stay there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by QMDexter Staying at the Lake Street Holiday Inn in 2012
I have stayed here four times this year, once for three weeks. Firstly, the staff is very focused on the customer, and endeavors to be very responsive. The property is quite clean and amenable, and for the most part quiet (that's more a function of guest behavior).
The restaurant provides quality meals, however the menu is limited. Consider getting more 'local flavor' options.
This hotel is my first choice when staying in Lake Charles.
