"Convenient to colleges in the Ruston area. Check-in was easy, and the hotel had gloves and hand sanitizer for guests.2020-08-17"
"Not worth the price. Check-in was awful; the hotel clerk seemed out of sorts and kept apologizing, and the room key wasn't ready. The room was disgusting. It smelled like mold, and the carpet was dirty. I was allergic to the down pillows. The dining staff was unresponsive, and the area wasn't hygienic. The women's bathroom on the 1st floor was dusty, and the toilet seat wasn't attached. There was a sign about renovation, but the whole place needed to be torn down and rebuilt.2018-10-27"
"We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. Overall, it was clean and well-kept. Safe surroundings and well-lit exterior. The AC didn't work the 1st day, but it was fixed in the morning. The housekeepers were courteous, and the service was good. Breakfast was always fresh and warm. 2018-02-20"
"Convenient to restaurants. We've stayed at this hotel before, and our room this time was the cleanest we've experienced. It's a quiet place even when sports are going on at local universities.2020-05-18"

"Easy to access. The hotel and rooms were clean, and the staff was friendly. The breakfast selection was limited, so we went to Cracker Barrel. We had a comfortable stay.2021-07-12"
"The hotel was clean. The AC was hard to operate, and we were too tired to call for assistance. The bathroom was exceptional; I loved the placement of the shower faucet and extra places to hang towels. Easy check-in, and the clerk was friendly and polite.2020-11-16"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
