Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay Enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The hotel was quiet and room was clean and nice. Will stay there again! August 12, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Baseball Tournament Front desk personnel were rude, did not acknowledge us as being IHG members. Clean and comfortable, felt safe. Could have been a great experience front desk employees need further training and people skills. August 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by comfortable bed and great service all was well at this location. I did not have a lot of time to relax because of the business that I was there for but overall everything was great August 7, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not happy with this hotel The room smelled, towels were stained, bathroom is too small, not enough light, didn't feel like it was in a good area. I was not impressed with this Holiday Inn and would not stay there again. August 6, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Business Trip I had a last minute business trip come up. Chose this location because it was near all of my destinations. Good location as far as attractions and eateries in the area. The bathtub did not drain very well. Advised staff of this problem upon checkout. A/C was OK......could have been better. Did not mention this to the staff. My mistake......I should have. The staff was very friendly and professional. There was no complimentary breakfast buffet at this hotel. That was a surprise to me.......guess I missed that while making my reservation. That could be a deal breaker for me returning to this particular hotel in the future. I tend to stay where the breakfast is included. I was not recognized as an IHG Rewards Club Member. Lack of free breakfast and slow draining bathtub put aside, I can recommend this hotel to other travelers. August 1, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great service service was outstanding the only problem was not enough roll away beds. July 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Value for the $ Staff was VERY FRIENDLY, rooms pretty nice. Overall a great value in a busy city. July 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well maintained facility When entering the hotel, was delighted to see the lobby and lounge area very clean and inviting. It was obvious the facility was being maintained well. Our room was clean and very comfortable. The only small noticeable item was one of the drawers to the dresser did not close completely. Other than that, everything was good. July 25, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DO NOT STAY HERE! This is a very old building that was renovated poorly! It should NOT be a hotel! Water damage in the ceiling. Very out dated amenities in the guest room. Felt unsanitary! And staff was not friendly or welcoming at all! I hated it here! Was definitely the worst I have ever stayed! July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Time Everything was great. The staff was very polite and helpful. I had no problems with the room or the restaurant, In fact the staff in the restaurant is wonderful I have sdtayed in the hotel at least 5 times and have always had the same experience. I will be back! July 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by High School Reunion I was in town for my 50th high school reunion which was held at the Holiday Inn South in Baton Rouge, La. At first I was apprehensive about the venue but my concerns were put to rest when I drove up to the hotel. It seems that in the past, the hotel had some problems resulting in neglect of the property but I was impressed with the current condition of the property and the interior of the hotel. It turned out to be an enjoyable experience and stay at a very up to date hotel. I'd most definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and relatives. Job well done ! July 16, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 4 th stay at this hotel People are very attentive and kind. Courtesy abounds with the staff. The property needs some upgrading very soon: especially the restaurant (kitchen looks like it needs a serious cleaning). The exercise room needs an upgrade in the equipment as well as increasing the number of machines. July 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by stayed several times. like this hotel Down sides was that food has gone down and there are less perks for being a points member. Apparently they are going through a food provider/operator switch. July 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Would stay here again... Very comfortable beds in the tower rooms. Front desk staff provided excellent customer service and really made me feel welcome. July 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Location and EZ to Relax Staff at the front desk was very pleasant and helpful. Pool area is great. The ease to get onto the freeway makes exit and entrance good and quick. July 12, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great nights sleep Room and furnishings were very nice and comfortable. Internet was not that good. There needs to be better signage at the entrance road as it is very tricky to find. We passed it up. Maintenance starts very early so you won't be able to sleep in "sigh". Food is great at the restaurant. July 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay This was the nicest Holiday Inn I have stayed in for around a decade between Denver, Houston, Dallas, Austin, and Tulsa. The hotel staff was extremely attentive and polite. My only gripe at all was that the doors were hard to close ( huge right? ). I will be staying again. The rates were wonderful and the location was perfect. July 9, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bad Expeience! Came from a Milton Holiday Express which was outstanding, so decided to trust the Holiday Inn in Baton Rouge since we would be arriving late. Arrived 9pm and were put into a room with malfunctioning AC. Could not raise the front desk and so went back up to front desk to get a different room. Got changed and everything seemed to work. Called desk to find ice and were directed to an ice machine which had not been in service for many years. Called the desk again and were informed we could get ice in the bar, told them we were tired and they agreed to send some ice to our room. Took some time since they had to find a plastic bag which had clearly been used to transport merchandise of another kind. In the morning we discovered their was no pot for the coffee maker. Went to the restaurant for breakfast at about 10am. Hardly anyone their, but we had to wait for the Hostess who was chatting with the other employees. The waitress did not understand us or the menu. Breakfast came piece meal with some prompting. Could be a great hotel if staff was trained properly and the restaurant was organization. One example--Grill was on one end of the Breakfast Bar and the serving plates were on the other end. July 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by comfortable bed very friendly staff clean and comfortable room staff very friendly quiet nights sleep nice pool indoor connected to outdoor pool July 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Accommodating staff and comfortable room/bed We had car trouble and had to stay overnight while our car was being repaired. The front desk staff offered late check-out which we did have to take advantage of. The staff were accommodating and made an unfortunate situation as comfortable as they could. June 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hotel Stay June 22 to 24th Experienced some issues with the hotel bathroom where water was leaking into the main room hallway which was a headache for the entire party! June 28, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not so great Hotel rooms were outdated, not so clean and A/C unit noisy. Very disappointing for a HI property. June 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Reliable stay This is a great mid-range full service hotel in the BR area. The breakfast buffet is really quite good. June 26, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Old Hotel This hotel is not horrible but it is old. The rooms enter from the outside like an old style motel. It can get noisy. The interior is still pretty nice and very unique. The resteraunt and bar are nice and offer great service. The front desk personell could be more helpful. Overall, this hotel was more expensive than the HI Express a few miles away and it is not worth the money unless you are bringing kids for the pools. June 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by door dead latch broken need to be secured better I was not informed the first check in about the IHG- rewards program, so I missed any points I could have acquired at that stay. June 21, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Old location Time for a remodel. Outdated location. Restaurant only open for breakfest. This hotel does not cater well to business traveler. June 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ALEC Meeting Great location at a great price will always stay at this property when I come to Baton Rouge June 13, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pool overrun by outsiders The only bad thing about my stay is there is so many people off the street using the pool thet most of the time the guest can't use the pool. I visited the hotel back in July of 2013 and in June in 14 and the same group was there using the pool and language so bad I couldn't let my kids near the pool June 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location, Comfortable rooms We enjoyed our stay, and felt welcomed by staff. This was the first time in Baton Rouge. We have family in the area and they had rec amended this location. June 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good place to stay in BR We stayed in the tower, the newer half of the hotel. Had no problems with the room or the facility. This is a regular HI so no continential breakfast. But the breakfast buffet was only $10 or $11 and this was comp'd during our extended stay. I will return to this property. June 5, 2014
