    « Worst »

    The hotel is clean, the staff is pleasant, but it was the worst stay ever. There must have been a large group of people that were together staying there when we were. In the day time, there was a room that had a large barking dog close to us. I thought the property had a no pets allowed policy. At night, there were people and children running up and down the halls being very loud. At one time we had a group sitting in front of our room in the floor hallway with kids screaming and carrying on. It was very annoying. The doors slamming till all hours was terrible. The noise above us was not any better. Our room was not cleaned while we were out during the day, so had to go to desk to get clean towels. I hope I never have to come back, but if I do, I will try to stay somewhere else, even if I have to drive further. I really could have used a good night sleep after driving for 10 hours and having to repeat the following day.

    « Great room »

    I stayed here for a business trip. There is only two choices for hotels in town, this one by far is the better choice! Everything was very clean and comfortable! Any time that I am in the Oakdale area I will be staying here!

    « Clean and Accomodating »

    Very nice rooms and hotel. Fully furnished with everything you'll need. Clean inside and outside. Pool was extremely clean and even had a chair lift for handicapped people. Great breakfast included. Staff was professional in appearance and behavior.

    « Best Hotel In Oakdale »

    I have family in Oakdale so I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions. The hotel is always clean and the staff is extremely warm and friendly. The rooms with king size beds also come with a settee and I love to sit on the settee and read.

    « Pleasantly Surprised »

    Very friendly staff and super clean modern rooms. I've stayed at another option in Oakdale and it wasn't good at all. This visit we stayed at Best Western and the property was on par with larger newer chains that you would expect in more metropolitan areas. The breakfast was acceptable to average. Slightly stale and even checking out at 4am, we were told that breakfast was 'ready'. Maybe that's why it didn't seem so fresh at 730a the day before. That aside, we'll definitely stay again on our next visit!

    « Best Stop in Louisiana! »

    If you need a place to stay in the middle of Louisiana, don't miss out on a great nights sleep. Going to Kinder to gamble? This Best Western in only 20 miles north of the casino and believe me, it's worth the short drive! Quiet, clean with a very nice staff who will help you at every turn!

    Very pleased, staff was friendly. The pillows were soft and there were plenty of them. I didn't eve get the pillow I brought out of my car. Small fridge and microwave were in our room which was very helpful.

    This hotel was out of the way but was worth the drive. The check in lady at the hotel and the lady that helped with breakfast was very nice and friendly. The room was clean and the tv had many different stations.

    « Worst hotel stay ever!!! »

    My check in took over 20 minutes and I was the only one there. Maid service was knocking on my door at 7:00 a.m. the next morning,the lighting was so dim you could hardly see in the bathroom,my key card had to be changed everytime I left the room and that always was a 10-15 minute wait and on my last morning maid service was vacuuming at 7:00 a.m.outside my door and talking loud so I was up and ready to leave after that. Worst hotel stay ever and I stay at hotels 10-12 times a year if not more.

    « Horrible!! »

    I am not one to ever talk bad or down on a place of business and never leave reviews of any sort, however I would not want anyone to have to experience what my family and I did at this hotel. First of all we were lied to about the pool being open and ready upon booking by the manager. The whole time we were there we were being told that it will be ready soon. We walked out to the pool and there was absolutly no water in it.. When we got to our room (which was suppose to be one of the best rooms) it smelled absolutly horrible! Later on in the evening we asked for a cot.. Was going to be charged $20 until I spoke to the manager about the pool situation and how my husband was extremely aggravated about it. So he let us use the cot for free..When we finally recieved the cot waiting for about an hour , it was covered with discusting brown stains.. There was blood on one of the pillows.. Never had enough towels .. We were told twice that the maids were washing them.. The breakfast or lack of was absolutly horrible!! Tasted like it had been sitting out for weeks . Biscuits were cold,biscuit gravy was sour, bread was hard ,milk was sour.. Just an overall horrible experience!! This was me being nice as I could be about my experience... Will never go back!! The only good thing was that there was a shuttle bus available to take us to the Coushatta Casinno and pool area 24 hours...

    « Customer Service »

    It was a bad experience since check in time. Concierge stated it was too much work for her to handle. She was rude with me and another guest and also with someone on the phone that was trying to get help booking a room. Fortunately I did not get to see her again during my stay. Christina the other concierge that assisted me the following morning and rest of the time, went above and beyond to provide excellent service. Also the bathroom looked it had just been repaired and was not cleaned on that section.

    « Comfortable and Convenient »

    We were visiting the community of Glenmora, where there is no hotel, so we were thankful that just down the road in Oakdale was this nice Best Western hotel. The people who work there were very friendly. The room was very nice and the bed was comfortable. WiFi worked great. There are not many choices in Oakdale and none of the others looked nearly as nice as this hotel. We enjoyed staying there.

    « Christine made the difference! »

    Christine was wonderful, thoughtful and anxious to meet any needs. Especially sensitive of the loss of my mom. Kept coffee hot and fresh all the time, so helpful. The bathroom glass shelf had not been touched in weeks, maybe months. It was dusty and sticky. We had my husbands service dog and the cleaning staff shot us dirty looks every time we saw them. I understand they were not used to seeing a dog, but there was no call for all the frowns. The lady at checkout never once spoke or said thank you, even though I spent over $1000. in rooms. I thought there would be at least a thank you courtesy. The young man was polite but one night while I was in the lobby a gentleman tried to get a room but the clerk was asleep, (the guest could hear him snoring) and after ringing the bell and doing everything he could think of, the guest left to find a hotel elsewhere. And it wasn't that late, maybe 10:00 p.m. Just thought you should know. Otherwise, everything was fine. The fruit was never replaced at breakfast but the coffee was always fresh and hot. Thanks.

    « oakdale hotel »

    very clean, great employees, good breakfast. slightly noisy early when others are checking out. slamming doors and all, but nothing can be done about this. otherwise, extremely nice hotel. I would be stay in this hotel each time in Oakdale. It feels safe and is close to Walmart for snacks and such. Not far from places to eat. They would do good to open restaurant for the hotel. There's not too much in the town.

    « Nicest hotel in the area »

    If you find yourself in the situation that you need a hotel in Oakdale, LA., then I assume your options are limited. That said, this is the nicest one in the area. Unfortunately, they know they have the nicest one in the area and charge accordingly. I felt it was a bit overpriced though. Had is been under $90, I would have given it another star.

    « Personal Stay »

    The stay was excellent with the exception of extremely poor lighting in the bathroom! Staff room and service was outstanding. Friendliness and professional people in all areas. Would certainly return and recommend with correction of poor lighting.

    « Great place to stay »

    I stay at Best Western Oakdale Inn every time I go home to visit, usually at Christmas. Wouldn't stay anywhere else! The people are wonderful and very helpful and most know me by name. I visit during Christmas and the hotel lobby is beautifully appointed and decorated. I sometimes have the continental breakfast. It's always good.

    « Friendly, clean and comfortable »

    Will make this Best Western a regular when we travel to visit family. The room was clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly. Price was not to expensive. Parking was well lit and hotel was near Wal-Mart.

    « Consistently Good »

    We stay here every time we come to Oakdale and with family in the area, we come here a lot. For a small town hotel, it's really nice. Clean, quiet, with free internet in-room, great breakfast, all at an amazingly low price. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

    « COMFORTABLE AND ACCESSABLE »

    My stay was for two nights while visiting family. Oakdale is located in the center of Louisiana. It is your typical small town America. With premium TV channels and free WiFi, This facility offers spacious rooms and extremely comfortable beds. The complementary breakfast was outstanding. There are not many choices for Hospitality in Oakdale, I would definitely recommend Best Western.

    « The best place in Oakdale, LA. »

    Everything is clean and well supplied. The staff is ready and willing to help with the pool, extra linens, and anything you need. The breakfast is very good with many choices. My parents said they'd like to eat there everyday. A huge full length mirror covers the closet.. The room was very comfortable and clean. The fridge, microwave, hair dryer, all nice to have. Extra rest rooms in the hall for emergencies and seemed very clean.

    « Visiting »

    The purpose of our visit to Oakdale was to visit our son. The hotel was in a good location for this visit. The only problem was this area around the hotel did not have good restaurants to eat at. We like to have good meals , not always fast food places. We did go to the grocer store and get sandwich stuff and etc. to put in the microwave , so that did help.

    « EXTREMELY NOISY »

    The room was clean with exceptional decor. Unfortunately the walls are paper thin including the door. I am a deep sleeper but had an awful night...got no sleep. You could hear EVERYTHING.....including ALL DOOR CLOSURES on the floor. The train near by did not help!!! I really wanted to like the hotel but it was just too noisy. The Best Western in Kinder, all though older, is a better option. VERY QUIET. Would not stay here again!!!

    « really nice »

    the stay was really nice. It is always clean, has the friendliest employees, but the price was high this last trip. Even though it is summer, the price almost was double the price in April. I like the atmosphere there, so we will go back. It is convenient for our purposes, but the area food leaves a lot to be desired. Even the statewide known businesses were not good. Maybe they should consider putting in a restaurant.
