Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by room rates Be certain to have your room rates confirmed in writing. You may not get the rate quoted on the phone when you arrive. September 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice clean hotel Clean rooms and a friendly staff at this hotel will make us come back here next time we are visiting the area. The staff in the restaurant was nice and got us a few items to take up to our room even though food service had just closed. The fitness room is larger than a lot of hotels, but could use a water cooler of some kind. It was easy to get to off of Hwy 10. September 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great value close to downtown, close to LSU, always clean, always friendly, good value for the traveler, restaurant and bar service is great September 12, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Missed Have stayed in this hotel many times. Why does this hotel still allow smoking in rooms? Made a quick click to reserve room and was smacked in the face by stale cigarette smoke when entering room. Room was switched by no recognition of IHG status at check-in. Hotel had booked girls dance troupe for weekend so little girls were left in executive lounge with boom box doing dance routines while I was attempting to do business. Also noticed girls hiding remote for TV's so channel could not be changed. Experience gave me an opportunity to check other hotels in area. Holiday is not competitive on price so perhaps I will be staying elsewhere in future. September 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stay Nice place, courteous staff and clean throughout! Only stayed one night on business, but will definitely use this hotel again the next time I'm in Baton Rouge! September 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gym, All you need to know. The gym is fantastic. I travel for work and rarely feel like I had a good workout. Not here, it was a great workout every night. There is a restaurant in the hotel which is nice. There are a great variety of places to eat around this location. Close to the highway as well. September 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Accessible Location Great Location, next door to Ruth Chris Steakhouse. Been staying at this hotel whenever I am in Baton Rouge September 6, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable room, terrible businsess relations the lady working the front desk was more interested in her personal phone call instead of taking care of my business... September 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent mattress and love the fan! This was our second stay at this hotel. Our first was in July to go to our son's freshman orientation at LSU. When we found out his move in date for his dorm was August 20 we immediately made reservations for this same hotel. It is very clean, updated, super comfortable and well priced. Both my husband and I were extremely impressed with the comfortable mattress and the fact that there was a ceiling fan in the room. We have to go back to Baton Rouge for LSU Family Weekend at the end of September and we look forward to staying at this Holiday Inn again! September 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Best HI Ever I am HH Diamond member and seldom stay at HI locations. But this one warrants an exception. Nicest HI property I have ever stayed in. Facility excellent, staff efficient and courteous, and location very convenient. September 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Experience I recently stayed in this hotel after checking out of a nearby IHG property that had significant problems. I arrived within minutes of making the reservation for this hotel, and my reservation was already in the hotel's computer system. The staff both at check-in and check-out were very friendly and welcoming. My room was very nice, clean, and comfortable. I will definitely stay here again in the future if I am in the area. August 31, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good Hotel Not Bad hotel to visit in baton rouge, La. I visited many other hotels and they are much better than this one. The only good thing about this hotel was the rate I got. August 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great As Always This is my hotel of choice in Baton Rouge. Staff is great, room is great and should be a model for all other Holiday Inns. August 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable Bed ! This hotel was in very good shape. IHG has upgraded with remodels on several properties. I would rate the bed as excellent - 5 star bed comfort. August 19, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Business Not a pleasant check in. However, we ususally enjoy a nice stay at this hotel. Like the pool and breakfast. Quick and easy. August 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Place Very nice Holiday Inn. Close to LSU, convenient to the freeway, and a nice place to stay. August 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and great service. I love this hotel. The desk agents upon check in and check out were very efficient and friendly. The rooms were immaculate and I love the beds, very comfortable. The restaurant staff was also very efficient and attentive to my needs and the food was delicious. Thank you for a wonderful stay. I will recommend this hotel to my friends. August 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Accounting Specialist We enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn in Baton Rouge. August 7, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor customer service, sneaky fees I arrived at the Holiday Inn a little early at 1:30PM and tried to check in (even though check in time is 4PM), I was immediately told that no rooms were available because check-out was at 11AM. I was shocked. The front desk girl did not even look to see if any rooms were available and I am a Platinum member with Holiday Inn. I immediately changed my reservation to one night as opposed to two nights. I also did not receive any recognition for being a Platinum Member of IHG. Upon check out, I discover that there is a surcharge of $4.95 on my bill. When I asked the front desk about the fee, I was told it was to keep up the property and the fitness center - isn't that what the rate for the room is. I had to complain about this, but they take it off my bill. I will not be staying at this Holiday Inn again. August 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Wonderful Mistake We were supposed to have stayed along with friends at a neighboring hotel, but it was full and the Holiday Inn was a convenient second choice. We visited with our friends during the conference, and compared to their accommodations, we got a better bargain for a nicer room with more amenities, and even got a breakfast included in our package. We'll certainly return to this hotel when we're in Baton Rouge. August 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great overall room beds Room was clean nice and quite with bed and pillow that provided an good night sleep AC worked well providing nice cool room for our stay August 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great facility This is a beautiful hotel. I have been in many Holiday Inn Expresses and this one was great. We were able to check in early and were given a great room. It had the best Fitness Facility I have ever seen and used. The pool was great and we throughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff was very cordial and made you feel very welcome. I will definitely stay there again when traveling in the LA. Area next year. July 31, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful Modern Hotel Had a wonderful time staying at this hotel. The room was clean and very modern. All the staff that we encountered where pleasant and very helpful. The only downside to this hotel is the restaurant attached to it. PLEASE do not waste your money there. We were so tired from traveling that we thought this would be a good option for lunch. Boy were we wrong. We should have tried the other restaurants nearby. Other than that, I would highly recommend staying at this hotel. July 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very comfortable accommodations Very nice hotel. No hair dryer in room but was brought one quickly when requested; same with shampoo. Overall a very pleasant and restful stop. Love having Ninfa's in walking distance. July 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stay at the Holiday Inn Baton Rouge College Drive We stayed at this facility from July 17th thru July 20th. It was a large group including children. The front desk staff was excellent, the room accommodations were excellent; clean and comfortable. The hotel staff made sure our stay was over the top. I highly recommend this Holiday Inn for your travel stay. July 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Weekend stay Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were overall very clean and comfortable. I will note that our bathroom sink was not cleaned after our first night, although the rest of the bathroom was- neither was the coffee maker. Other than these 2 minor oversights, hotel was great! July 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Experience Clean and very nice hotel atmosphere friendly parking lot well lighted and protected clerk very helpful in making the reservation over phone while traveling rooms very clean and beds comfortable for sleep bathroom very clean July 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very nice Hotel very comfortbale bed I was looking online for weeks to see what hotel to stay at on our stay and I am so glade I picked this one so glade I did. very nice hotel and very comfortable bed. will be staying here again when I come done to visit my daughter. July 20, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice rooms, food needs improvement This hotel has nice large rooms and is comfortable. I would suggest a "store" in-house for some snacks, soft drinks, as there is nothing close by. The attached restaurant was a disappointment. The breakfast buffet was lackluster. The eggs were rubbery and the breakfast meats were dried out. I should have gotten the hint. I had dinner there one night as I didn't feel like driving. The fish dinner was tasteless. I would recommend eating off-premises. July 18, 2014
