Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TexasNative68 Quiet comfortable rooms with great hotel staff
This was the 3rd year in a row that I have stayed in this hotel during the Thanksgiving hoilday and I can say that it is a very nice place to stay in Ruston, LA. The rooms are very clean, comfortable, and nice sized for a 3 day stay. The nights were very quiet and the staff so friendly, especially a super nice lady named Chris that works in the breakfast/dining room. She is so friendly and has been there all 3 years that I have stayed there with my family. She makes you feel welcome in every way and prepares a great breakfast and nice evening snacks! She makes the stay at this Holiday Inn Express so nice. The staff always supplies you with plenty of fresh towels and other supplies and seems eager to go out of their way to accomodate your needs! It is a good value for the price of stying here I can highly recommend this hotel and say that all hotels should be staffed and ran the way this particular hotel is ran and how clean and neat it is kept.

We stayed in the HI Express in Ruston on both legs of our trip. The first night we were there was not too bad, the room was okay until we started bath time for our kids and noticed the tub was nasty still with long hair on the walls, the tub and hanging from the rail attached to the shower wall. I took a picture of it because it was so bad. There were also ants on the floor in the bathroom. I didn't complain on that visit as I thought it was just a random issue.
On our return trip, we again stayed at this hotel, mainly due to the availability of Reward nights (West Monroe had none available that night). We checked in around 3:30 Saturday afternoon and were relaxing in our room when about 4:15 housekeeping came barging in without knocking. They did apologize but it was very unnerving. The room was cleaner, we didn't notice any obvious issues with cleanliness on this visit, however, the noises during the night were constant and loud enough to keep us awake much of the time. The room next door to us apparently had people coming and going at all hours using the safety lock to keep the door from closing completely as we heard that door bounce against the safety lock all through the night. Also, the people in the room above us were running back and forth the length of the room for about 20 minutes around 1:10am. The creaking of the ceiling and the heavy footsteps was enough to wake up all of my family.
Needless to say we had a restless night due to the noises. We started to call to complain but the door to the room next to us was directly across from the door to the front desk so I am certain they were aware of it. I am not a complainer but since you asked me to review this site, here you go.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MelK Disappointing
I stay at Holiday Inn fairly often and usually its a pleasant place. I'm sorry to say this particular property is not. As Holiday Inns go, this one was uncharacteristically run down. HI should be embarrassed to have their name on the sign. The whole place stank of mildew, enough to make eyes water, worst on the upper floor. The toilet wasn't bolted down. The shower was so stained and old it had permanent bathtub ring. Disgusting.
On the positive, the staff was very nice and quite professional, especially the young man at the front desk. I felt sorry for them trying so hard when the place was so run down.
There was a very nice competing property sharing the parking lot. It should have been a clue when all the cars were there and not at HI. If I hadn't been so tired I'd have gone there too.

Check-in & out very good. However, ready to shower next A.M. & voila, no shower curtain. Called front desk & clerk brought curtain , but being alone at desk couldn't hang it. Did it myself!
Returned to room late afternoon & there had been no maid service. Returned to desk for fresh towels. Voiced complaint & bill was adjusted $40.
