Let the good times roll when you book a stay in our Holiday Inn® Lafayette hotels in the heart of Louisiana's Cajun country. The sunny strains of fiddle and accordion ripple through the twilight marshlands all year long.
Step out from our hotels in Lafayette to discover the rich culture of Cajun country. Visit Vermilionville, a folklife and heritage park and a living-history museum of 18th and 19th-century life in French Acadiana. You can join in the park's jumping Cajun jam every Saturday. Take the kids on a swamp tour into the murky but eerily compelling bayou. Led by Cajun naturalists, these tours into dense cypress swamps reveal mink, otter, egrets and herons, and gators lurking on the surface of the bayou waters. Just outside Lafayette the stately white columns of old plantation homes, like Chretian Point or Shadows-on-the-Teche, cast shadows on grounds planted with live oak and fragrant magnolia.
In Cajun country, food is an essential part of the culture. The spicy culinary stew that is Creole food has its roots in the region's multicultural heritage, but Lafayette is the heart of French Acadiana, where Cajun cooking is king. After a good night's sleep in one of our hotels in Lafayette, start your day with a zydeco breakfast of oreille du cochons (fried dough shaped like pigs' ears), dig into a rich gumbo for lunch, and end the day "pinching tails" at a crawfish boil, where the sweet meat of the mudbugs is washed down with Abita beer. Don't miss the weeklong Festival Acadiens et Creole, a free music and food festival in October.
Bring your dancing shoes and a hearty appetite when you book a stay at our Holiday Inn Lafayette hotels. Join in the celebration of good food, good music, and Cajun-style good times.
Room/ bathroom was very clean. I consider myself OCD so I am very particular about cleanliness. Overall very satisfied. Desk clerks was very nice and helpful.[Less]
Very friendly staff and clean outside as well as inside rooms
I am a gold elite ihg member and I stay at this location at 2 out of the 4 weeks in a month for business. The hotel is always clean as you approach as well as the lobby and also the rooms are clean.[More] Staff is friendly but inconsistent on acknowledgement of ihg members and rewards that should be given upon check in. Also, not consistent on room preferences requested. But other than that this would be a great hotel for business purpose due to location around entertainment and dine out choices.[Less]

I was told I would get an additional 500 points for having the maids skip my room for 2 days! I did that but didn't get the 500 points![Less]
