They have a hot breakfast 7 days and complimentary dinner 3 nights a week. We were welcomed like long lost family. I cannot say enough of how nice the people...

Ask and you shall receive at this facility...they bend over backwards to fill your requests and even offer other perks you've never through of. The facility is somewhat old, but it has been remodeled and is excellent for the price. The hot breakfast were good, but just standard fare. Sometimes evening meals were served and they were wonderful for those...

This is a one-off place different to the chain motels. The room was fairly small, a little dark and tired but clean and functional. The hot breakfast was dished-up by a waitress, a pleasant change from full self-serve buffets, and although we ate out, the hotel offered a free guest-appreciation meat-ball supper when we were there. Good value.

Thanks for staying with us during your last stay. Our rooms are upgraded as the economy allows us to but do not allow the weakest link to be occupied by guest. There are 18 different style rooms in our hotel where our largest suites is 1100 ft.², which can sleep 14 (4 room 3 bath.) The smaller rooms in the...

I was greeted by the friendliest staff. They even issued me a lower rate once they discovered I was there for a family member in the hospital. My room was extremely clean and the staging was perfect. I will visit this location again.

The Carmel Inn is a great deal! The reception raised my spirits after a long drive with cheerful banter. Our room was super quiet and comfortable. We were able to walk easily to Thibodaux's funky downtown for dinner at the staff-recommended restaurant. Just across the street from the motel, we were astonished to encounter at dusk at large tree on...
