On July 4, 2014, my husband and I arrived at 8:30 a.m., weary from traveling, only to be met by an obnoxious and nasty-looking clerk (he looked like someone from the "Night of the Living Dead"). The clerk's appearance was as nasty as his attitude, when he informed us we were not allowed to check in until 3:00 pm and...

This national chain has a cancellation policy that SUCKS big time. You have to cancel by 3 PM the day BEFORE you expect to arrive. If you get sick or your transportation breaks down or someone in your family dies and you have to change your plans suddenly at 5 PM that day BEFORE you are expected....tough luck. You will...

When I walked into the office, the horrible smell was totally apparent. I should have run then, but wanted to give it a chance. Walking into the room was like being in the Twilight zone. The place was not fit for humans. It was shabby, unkept, dirty, smelly. Keep in mind that I was not expecting the Hilton, but this...

According to website, hotel is 5 years old, looks more like 50 years old. Parking lot not paved, all gravel. Railroad directly across street and at 4am, a train came through blowing it horn.

I was in shock when I saw this place. It was a two room suite. I thought it was going to be great for me and my grown daughters. We were attending the Gary Allen concert.

1st of all make sure you understand that we are talking about the Inn at 517 1st Ave., Kinder, La. 70648-3533. Having never been to Kinder, La I went to Hotwire.com to check on hotel recommendations. All hotels in this small city were primarily 1 1/2 to 2 star therefore all appeared to be pretty equal. I booked 2 rooms,...
