“Nice motel but far away from main road”
Reviewed 31 October 2011

Nice motel with clean rooms by motel's standart and pretty good bath.
Far away from main road and the directions are not very clear.
Basic breakfast, agian, Okay by motel's standart.
Not bad by value scale.
If you need it only for a night sleep on the road and you dont mind to pay some more - you can look for atoher motel.

Looked clean and definitely worn at first glance. However, the bottom sheet on the bed was stained in several places. One stain was still greasy so by my standards the sheet should have been tossed. The sheets were so old and washed so many times that they were soft and almost sheer.

I had a tough time finding usable plugs to recharge my phone and other devices because the outlets a) didn't work or b) were so old that plugs fell out of them. I eventually unplugged the floor lamp which was "conveniently" plugged into the light switch by the door, laying my devices on the back of a chair. The plug in the bathroom supposedly worked if you flipped on the overhead light. It didn't so I couldn't use a hair dryer or the coffee pot (not that I would have). Plugging in my 5V charger into the same outlet as the TV tripped the breaker.

There were no privacy sheers so I had to keep the curtains closed during the day and there was no light because I had to unplug the floor lamp (see above). There's a lot of traffic -(bumper-to bumper during the day and speeders at night) so it was noisy. Weatherproofing around the door would have helped block the noise and light seeping in at night.

A running toilet and noisy A/C unit (also old) contributed to the noise. I used ear plugs that night.

The hanger hooks on the rack had to have been original because they were completely rusted.

On the plus side the room had a safe, a flat screen TV, free wi-fi and is 300' from the Blue Dog.

Yes, it's cheap and fairly clean but I stayed in other hotels at the same price on my trip which were not shabby or worn and offered fresh interiors.

Room Tip: Possibly a room in the back. I don't recommend a room in the front / near the office.

Convenient and inexpensive motel in Lafayette’s Oil Center near University of Louisiana at Lafayette and less than 10 minutes from airport or downtown. Nothing fancy, nothing shabby, just nice rooms, and a decent free breakfast (featuring New Orleans’ own Community Coffee). Staff was friendly and offered extremely helpful information on local tourist sites. Best feature: It’s across the street from the Blue Dog Café, a popular Cajun-style restaurant with a lively crowd and live music. Other good restaurants are also within walking distance.

A friend and I stayed here one night on our way to New Orleans. The room was clean and comfortable. It is a no frills place. We were able to park our car right outside the door for easy loading and unloading. The only thing amiss was that the coffee pot looked a little dirty, like it had toothpaste residue on it from being by the bathroom sink, but we didn't use the coffee maker so it wasn't a big deal. The staff was nice and make check in/out easy. I probably wouldn't stay here for an extended period of time, but it was great for the one night.

Room Tip: Online booking is easy

From entering the small, musty Lobby to sign in, we should have known this place needed help. The day manager sent us to a room where the beds had not been made then sent us to a 2nd room. The air in the room was bad. The A/C just made it mustier smelling so we had to leave the door open for several hours. The windows don't open. It was a non-smoking room, so why was there and ashtray and matches in it? Wanted to shower but there are no hair dryers. Bed was hard and squeeked like it had a rubber sheet in it if you moved. As we settled in, at 9:30 a stranger tried to open the door. Turned out the day manager had forgotten to change the computer showing our moved and double-booked it. The guy outside was angry! The walls are thin and we could hear our neighbors TV until very late. The manager did apologize, but that was all. We finally drifted off to sleep, hoping we wouldn't be sick from the cruddy air. Then at 4 am the room phone rang - no one on it - I guessed it was our wake up call - that we did NOT ask for. The breakfast room wasn't bad, but no bread or bagels. "We ran out of waffles" we were told. Why couldn't the manager ask someone to guy buy a loaf of bread? It was 6:30 am and he had a full load of customers that hadn't eaten yet... On returning to our room we couldn't get in. The manager helped us, but I think next time we will say "Travelodge, NO THANKS!" (At least now we know why their Bear mascot looks so sleepy.)
