Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PlatMem56 Incompetent desk staff
While the rooms and hotel itself were ok, the desk staff and management were incompetent and/or just didn't care. Even when trying to correct a mistake, they just compounded mistake after mistake. Attitude was also an issue. I paid for one night for my nephew and used points for two nights for my sons. The hotel didn't check out my nephew so when I called in to ensure he had been checked out, they instead checked out my sons from the other room. When they got back to the room they could not get in and then the hotel charged them for another night. I called the hotel multiple times to get theis corrected and try to get a receipt. After the 5th or 6th call, I finally got it straightened out and received a receipt. I had ask for some kind of compensation (It was not freely offered) and it went through a desk staff even though I asked to speak to a manager (he was on the other line). The manager never called me or showed interest. Avoid this hotel if you can.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BuckeyeDH Need to address the humidity in rooms
The hotel staff was very friendly. The room has clean and nicely furnished.
The air conditioning was cold but the room was always damp. The humidity level was very uncomfortable. My shirts that were hang in the closet always felt like they were wet when I would put them on in the morning. The sheets felt the same way when going to bed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Skip2003 Excellent room and staff but terrible coffee
We really enjoyed our stay with the exception of the quality of the coffee. If like our family you need a good cup of coffee in the morning this is not the place for you.

The room was by far one of the nastiest rooms I have ever stayed in. The smell of the water is so horrible I refused to shower in it. The carpet was just beyond gross, I was scared to take off my shoes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cowtownpam This is where I'll stay EVERY time I visit West Monroe!
If you're coming to see the home of "Duck Dynasty," this is where you want to stay. Less than 2 miles away from Duck Commander Headquarters. Best breakfast (especially the eggs and bacon) I've ever had at a Holiday Inn Express. I felt like I was staying with my family - that's how friendly and helpful this hotel's staff is (especially Daniel). You will love walking through Restoration Park, which is right behind the hotel. The Monroe Visitors' Center is next door. Pick up your Duck Dynasty sightseeing map there. Lots of restaurants nearby (including Willie Robertson's Diner). I promise - you will have a great time if you stay at Holiday Inn Express in West Monroe.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tryjesus44 Not a good experience
My platinum status was not mentioned at check in. If you went bare footed in the room the bottoms of your feet would be black from the dirt in the carpet. A chair in the room had a torn and ragged arm. Staff members or their families parked in the area near the front entrance for extended periods of time. I stayed there several times years ago and had a positive experience. However, this stay was not positive. It appears to me there is serious management deficiencies at this property. I will probably not stay there again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Davetec Graduation Weekend
We stayed at this Holiday Inn during my daughter’s graduation. This was the closest Holiday Inn to ULM. I stay at a lot of Holiday Inns when I travel for my job. This was my first time at this particular Holiday Inn. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful, but the rest of the staff was substandard. My family rented three rooms for two days. Our primary annoyance was breakfast. First day we came down for breakfast they were out of most hot foods and all the tables were dirty. We had to clean our own table before we could eat. The second day was the same, not enough hot food for everyone and dirty tables. Then a few minutes before breakfast was over and as we are leaving the staff brought in full containers of hot food. We also had issues with the cleaning staff. Twice they were blocking the hallway with their cart while they were talking. We couldn’t pass and they would look at us but not move until we asked if we could go by. The two first floor rooms were musty smelling but we see that alot in Louisiana.

Excellent in every regard. Clean, efficient and courteous. All Holiday Inn Express breakfasts are the same but I believe these guys did a better job of preparing the meal than any of the hotels I have stated at before.

We arrived at the hotel later in the evening. There was one clerk working. Dallas I believe his name was. I was trying to check in and he was constantly cutting me off and answering the phone. I was in town for a funeral. I really just wanted to get into my room after a very long day of travelling and attending services. I found that to be quite rude. I was not offered any additional 500 points or gift bag, which is a standard for Platinum members. Elise, a lady at the desk is also extremely rude. Has zero phone etiquette. Breakfast the first morning was pretty much devoured by the group staying in house and I was pushed out of the way by one of the "Mothers". My husband, who works for IHG, spoke to the General Manager, and still no gift bag or 500 points added to my account. As a platinum member I expect to receive what I have earned. I will not stay here any more and will actually go completely out of my way to stay at another brand on my return trips to Monroe.

I have stayed in this hotel previous on several occasions and pleased with the facilities in all aspects. The last stay was not up to the quality of my previous stays. The breakfast choices were not up to standards, both the refrigerator and pancake machine were broken. The other items present were in limited quantities available. The room sheets were rough and the sun block curtain did not close. It was disappointing.

I spend at least 4-5 nights each month in hotels, usually Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express. This hotel is clean, nice and a good hotel. But the staff is what makes it special. Being away from home for a week at a time makes you appreciate someone who welcomes you when you walk in the door and remembers you when you come back in the next night.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ICWUC Great room, Terrible Sevice!
I arrived at the hotel on the afternoon of April 7, 2014. I proceeded to check in and was not recognized as a priority club member nevertheless a Platinum member. I was advised that there was no King rooms available and therefore would be complimentary upgraded to a suite. There was some issue with the hotels computer system and so I was not presented a rate sheet to sign. The room was very nice and clean although there was some cosmetic damage to the closet area. The morning of April 8, 2014, I found my rapid check out receipt under the door as expected but was troubled to see that the name on the receipt was incorrect. I approached the front desk with the issue and after several minutes I was told that the corporate office would have to correct the problem and a receipt would be emailed to me later that day. I spent the rest of the week on the phone with different hotel staff trying to obtain a correct receipt. It was not until April 11, 2014 that I finally received a receipt with the correct name on it and learned that I had been charged for the King suite that was suppose to be complimentary. I have stayed at this hotel many times in the past and rented meeting space here many times but as much as I like IHG hotels, I will look for other accommodations when staying in West Monroe, LA.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Magnolia1966 Huge Disappointment!
I have frequently stayed at this property over the last five years and am a Rewards member. I have been pleased with this property until my latest stay on March 29th. I stayed at this property on two occasions last week, Sunday night and the following Saturday night. On the first night, my room was not clean as evidenced in a soiled toilet. The complimentary toiletries were not replaced and the sink was not washed down. I did not mention it at that time and considered it a fluke. Mistakes happen...When I checked into the hotel again on March 29th, my room #320, was noticeably dirty. The door card pocket from the previous person was there on the night stand. I pulled the sheets back and it was very obvious that the sheets had not been changed...stains from previous guest remained. When I went into the bathroom, the soap that the previous guest had used was still on the sink. The used soap and used toiletries from the previous guest was still in the shower. The wallpaper was peeling off the wall in a large piece. Simple fixes, but not done! Basically, the room had not been cleaned...PERIOD. "Charles", the housekeeper, had left me a sweet note to "have a blessed stay", but I would have appreciated "Charles" simply cleaning the room that he was paid to do. I did not leave a tip, for sure! I had my own pillow and blanket and I used that for the night. I reported this finding the next morning to the tall guy at the desk. There was NO apology...nothing. I asked for the manager's name and he pointed me to the business card. I contacted the manager on Monday morning about it, and her response was "What do you want?" #Like do you want the room comped?# She told me that she had only been there a month, but was going to clean it up. She was nice and polite, though. She told me to let her know when I was coming back through and she would take care of me. My response is CLOSE THE HOTEL UNTIL YOU GET IT CLEANED UP. Shut down, and don't take customer's money until you have a respectable property. I did not "get comped" because I did not want to be. I just want a clean safe place to stay in West Monroe. Management needs to go room by room and make note of things that need to be fixed. Cleaning out the cleaning crew would be a good start. Won't stay here again until I see the satisfaction rate go up more. I DO NOT recommend this hotel to anyone. Also....There was NO recognition of Rewards Club member.

The front desk clerk was rude, did not mention my platinum status and did not offer the extra points. I finally asked for the points and she said she would 250 not the 500 that other hotels had given. She was extremely rude, no smile.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SJTT Quiet, restful stay
Key personnel were friendly and met needs when asked.
Nature park that is adjacent to hotel property is a great place to go for a walk. The park has a mile long gravel trail running through it and makes for a great place for exercise or to take dogs for a walk. Due to significant number of other people walking through the park I felt that it was very safe place to get a little exercise.
Very convenient to several national chain restaurants. Several of them are just 3-4 minutes down the road.
About a mile away from the Duck Commander showroom.
All in all this is best place to stay in West Monroe.
Will definitely come back again and again.

This hotel is one of the best places I stay at! The staff is outstanding! From check-in with Dallas to check-out with Michele. Breakfast was outstanding with the young lady Elise. I encountered two housekeepers and they were so nice and up beat. Stella and Teresa. The managers reception they have on Monday-Wens was amazing and well put together, and the popcorn and pink lemonade was a great touch every night. The walking trail behind the hotel was so nice and convenient. Also it is by so many restaurants. I would recommend this hotel. I will be staying here again!

The night staff was less than excited to welcome us to their hotel, even though I am a Platinum member. The morning staff was no better with the exception of the breakfast lady. I regret that I did not get her name as she was the only bright spot in this miserable hotel. Our room had water stains on the bathroom ceiling and was beginning to fall down. The bathtub had rust stains, the toilet mineral stains and the bathroom floor and corners looked as if it had never been cleaned since the hotel opening. The wall behind the door had holes in it from the door hinges. The pull out bed supplies were missing a cover for the comforter and a pillowcase. The comforter was stained with ink ( I hope). Also, this is the most expensive HI Express I have ever stayed in for the same type of room. I have never had to write a negative review about a Holiday Inn Express before but this was justified. We won't be back to this one.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by KUjayhawks This place used to be a deal. Prices have skyrocketed.
This hotel used to. Be as decent regularly priced holiday in express. Room prices have soared and forget booking amy boys point packages, they are far too high. Only upside to this hotel is the direct access to restoration park behind it. This place has let their proximity to duck commander drive prices up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BJP26 Most comfortable beds!
The comfort of the beds is what impressed me the most. Rooms are clean with nice décor. Hallways and elevators aren't kept as clean as most hotels that I use on business trips....needs more attention to detail. Check-in is always quick and efficient, evening desk clerk is very friendly and helpful. Location is terrific! I recommend this hotel and will be staying there again. I'm encouraging my company to get an account set up due to their proximity to the airport. The area also appears safe.
