    « Best Western »

    As has been noted in other reviews, this hotel is showing it's age. It has many amenities going for it, Wi-Fi, continental breakfast, pool, adequate parking, convenience, but the biggest problem is that it is not quite clean. If housekeeping staff would pay attention to detail, the overall experience would improve considerably. Soap stains were present on the tub, grout needed cleaning in the bathroom, small scraps of paper on the bathroom floor, that sort of thing that shows a lack of attention. On a more positive side, the staff are friendly and southern town polite. Every staff member we interacted with went out of their way to assist us and ensure we were satisfied with the minor problems we encountered. One word of caution, if you have a first floor room, be prepared to enjoy the walking and scraping noises from the room upstairs.

    I stayed here for the first time to visit family. As soon as we pulled up to check in we couldn't help but notice how clean the whole area was. Once walking to front desk we were greeted with a smile by the front desk clerk. She was very friendly and outgoing. It's was a very fast check in. She explained about breakfast and express check out. We were very satisfied upon entering our room. It was very very clean, it smelt very fresh. We got a good night sleep got up next morning went down for breakfast and it was fresh and hot. We will definitely be staying here again.

    First time staying here it is a nice hotel, very clean, rooms smell fresh. The staff was wonderful, helpful and very friendly. Anything we needed and they could help with they did so. Made me and my family feel welcomed and comfortable. Also has a great variety of things for breakfast. Breakfast was also fresh and delicious. Would defiently stay here again.

    « Thank you Matthew-2 week business trip »

    I came into town for what I thought was going to be a week of work. I ended up staying for two weeks instead. The staff was more than happy to keep extending my stay for me. I had't been on my job for more than a couple of days when I ran into a problem. I' not very computer savvy, although i have to use one for my work. Not being from the area, I didn't know if I could even find any technical support. When I arrived at the hotel that evening I went straight to the front desk for help. Instead of pointing me in the direction of the local GeekSquad, Matthew offered his assistance. In between his other duties and checking with other guests, he found the time to troubleshoot my computer. He worked off and on for two hours and got that thing back up and running. He told me at the end that I didn't owe him anything and that it was no problem. I brought him some dinner the next evening to show my thanks. He told me that I didn't have to do that. My only reply was that he didn't have to do what he did, but he did it.

    Stayed here in 2017. Went back to Eunice for Mardi Gras 2018 and stayed here again. The motel was great each time. The staff are wonderful. Friendly people who answered my questions and gave me information about the area. Hot breakfast each morning was very nice. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Looking forward to next years visit.

    A reservation snafu almost created a catastrophe. Helpful, caring staff solved the problems, high rating. Rooms are clean and recently updated. Breakfast was fine, no noise. Really can't say anything but praise for the staff.

    « Clean room, great staff, great breakfast bar »

    In town for 50th High School Reunion. Got AARP rate...less than $100/nite taxes included. My room was ground floor. It was clean, and serviced daily. Manager is Eunice native who moved back home from . FL. Entire staff was friendly and welcoming. Their free breakfast is worth about $13.00 compared to local table service restaurants. The breakfast bar choices include scrambled eggs and either sausage or bacon, self made larhe waffles, yogurt, cereal and either whole or low fat milk, Community coffee, orange juice, syrup and jellies. All self-serve and unlimited portions. Cable TV with local and national news and entertainment. Coffee pot in room. Only odd thing was a large jetted tub next to the comfortable king sized bed. Very fast and free wifi, usb phone port in clock by bed, and additional a/c outlets in base of desk lamp for laptops and ipads, etc. Very comfortable high back desk chair. Lots of shopping and dining nearby. Fresh boudin and cracklins available across the street and next corner to the east.

    « Friendly but Not Quite Clean »

    I was unable to book the room online, either through TripAdvisor or directly on the hotel's website. I think the hotel has only two rooms with Jacuzzis, one smoking and one not, and unlike last year, those rooms were not offered online this year. I had to call the hotel directly (from overseas at $2.50 per minute) for the reservation. The booking call was handled smoothly and professionally. We had room 110, the non-smoking Jacuzzi room. Somebody had smoked in the room, not recently, but there was enough lingering odor to be mildly unpleasant upon first entering the room. As a former smoker who quit in 2005, I am familiar with the odor, and my sense of smell has returned to its pre-smoking sensitivity. That smoker should have been charged for replacing the carpet and drapes, which should have been done. At around $148 per room night, all inclusive (the AAA rate), I felt the room cost almost twice what it was worth, especially in a small town. Maybe I'm just getting old and not staying in hotels often enough to be tuned in to inflation. As it turned out, my wife was not as interested in the Jacuzzi as I was, so if we stay here again, we won't get that room. My impression is the room was not vacuumed properly on a regular basis. We always remove our shoes indoors. A few times when there was some water on the floor by the lavatory or bathroom, my feet left dirty footprints. My wife kept a pair of flip-flops at the edge of the carpeted area for use in the lavatory and bathroom area. There was a dead fly on the floor near the toilet for our entire four day stay. Why didn't we bring these issues to the attention of the management? During our stay there was nothing that could be done about the leftover smoke aroma, as this was the only non-smoking Jacuzzi room in the hotel. The cleanliness issues were only minor annoyances; it's not my job to QC hotel housekeeping; and I'm notifying the management now. Enough negativity. Time for a more positive note. The room was pleasant and well furnished, with a stuffed chair and footstool, small desk with office type chair, and all the usual things you see on the website. Eating take-out meals in the room would have been better with a small dining table, but there wasn't room for anything like that, so we put plastic bags on the footstool and used it as our table, one of us on the big chair and the other on the office chair. I suppose we could have moved the little corner table and used that, but it didn't occur to us when we were hungry. The air conditioning and plumbing worked well. This kind of thing is basic, but since one review mentioned plumbing problems and another was happy with the A/C, I thought I would give credit where credit is due. The hot water was not too hot, maybe for liability reasons, so when I filled the Jacuzzi, it was all hot water. Unlike one of the reviewers, we enjoyed the breakfasts and encountered no problems with freshness. We usually ate near the middle of the breakfast hours, neither early nor late, and everything was fine. The staff monitored the buffet closely and promptly replenished anything that was getting short. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday mornings the buffet had scrambled eggs and a pretty good patty sausage. Sunday it was fried eggs and bacon. Mmmmm, bacon. For waffles there were chocolate chips and cinnamon available, along with butter and syrup. The coffee was Community, most excellent. In addition to the hot food, the buffet had all the usual things you would expect. Except there was no microwave to heat sweet rolls etc., unless I missed it, which is entirely possible. All in all, I have to say the breakfast buffet is one of the hotel's best features. One good thing about the location is the Dairy Queen next door. Another good thing is T-Boy's Specialty Meat Market across the street. We didn't go to the Mexican restaurant on the other side of the hotel from DQ. Not much else to say about location because Eunice is not that big. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Having stayed here two years in a row, and finding that we didn't use the Jacuzzi enough to warrant the extra expense, for our next time in Eunice we will be doing some comparison shopping, but will include this place in the comparison.

    « Sandra checked us in-Awesome!!! »

    We were on the last 3 legs of a 12 day road trip. Exhausted and had stayed at a real dump the night before, unknowing until we were already checked in. Sandra was so helpful and pleasant I just can't think of enough good words to describe the experience. The room was clean and comfy and we enjoyed the breakfast. We ate at the DC? or D and C restaurant almost across the street. Very good food. I would highly recommend this Best Western. Thanks again, Sandra for being so helpful.

    « Beware! »

    If you want to have to plunge your own toilet when it doesn't work, stay here. If you want leftover breakfast items, stay here. If you want to see hotel staff that dress like they just rolled out of bed...putting zero effort into how their appearance is, stay here. This place is a trainwreck to say the least.

    « Worst Best Western Experience Ever! »

    My husband and I stayed there for one night (3 days ago) on our 35 day trip. We had a horrible experience upon checking in only to enter our room to find a filthy, unsanitary and malfunctioning toilet that we had to clean ourselves because we were told there was no other room to move us to and the cleaning staff had left. And this was after standing waiting to check in for 35 minutes while the clerk completed her computer work! Eventually, the owner (who was watching remotely by camera) came to "snake" the toilet so that it was functional. When I spoke to the manager a few days later about the situation, she said she would only discount our room $25 because she "knew that nothing would make me happy". I still can't believe the experience ! I do want to mention Lena, the evening desk clerk who was not there for any of our check in fiasco, was shock d by what happened and tried to make up for it even at her own personal expense! This hotel manager and the other attendant should ask Lena how to empathize and de-escalate a customer service situation! I hope she is recognized for that.

    We were in Eunice for a prospect camp at LSUE. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and well stocked. Our toilet had a few issues where it took forever to flush but eventually would on its own, kinda weird but I mentioned it to the front desk. If we had been there longer than two nights I would've used maintenance like the front desk suggested but it wasn't that big of a deal. Pool was clean. Continental breakfast was good. A/C worked great.

    « Very nice employees! »

    The room was clean and nice. The employees were all friendly and helpful. The breakfast was better than average. The only two downsides were that the rooms that we were in (two different times/rooms that week) smell of mold or must. Also, for me, I don't quite understand the high price (over $100). One night, we were the only customers and there were few people the other two nights. Overall, I would go there again.

    « Good Hotel »

    Clean, comfortable room and conveniently located for the purpose of our trip. There was a little mix up checking in and we walked into our room and were quite startled (as were they) to find others already in it. Clerk took some time to figure it out, but in the end, it was fine and we were given the room next door.

    « Tolerable »

    I've stayed here twice. The rooms are clean but very musty. It's like there is 100% humidity in the room. Toilets are sluggish. Options for breakfast are very limited. On the plus side, this hotel is in a very convenient location and the staff is nice. If you don't need frills, this hotel is adequate, but if you are a demanding traveler, you will be disappointed.

    « Friendly and Clean »

    Stayed one weekend for a second honeymoon. Friendly, helpful staff. Couldn't open the room door after checking in because the strike plate was loose, missing a screw, but they quickly showed us the trick and fixed it the next day. Couldn't get the jacuzzi to work without asking for help. Aside from these minor problems, everything was fine and the stay was most pleasant. Good breakfast buffet variety including hot food and fresh waffles. A bit pricey for the Eunice market and for what they offer.

    Stay at this Best Western when travelling to Eunice, LA to listen to Cajun music, etc. Friendly professional staff, clean rooms, centrally located. Usually pretty quiet but this time, the upstairs guests were noisy ALL NIGHT LONG! Needless to say, we didn't get much sleep, should have reported it but were afraid of retaliation.

    Our room #207 was very clean. We had a king size bed and had a separate sofa for relaxation. Location was very good, located right next to Dairy Queen and DC Restaurant on one side and Hacienda Mexican Restaurant on the other side (all walking distance). Glad that the rooms are close to parking. Very nice large outdoor pool. - I didn't get the gals name at the front desk (7/3 p.m.), she was extremely sweet and went out of her way. I asked if she had any paper plates and cups; she gave us the items (we had ordered pizza and sodas). This Best Western location have a very helpful group of people that work here! We go to Eunice to visit relatives often, we will definitely book here when we do.

    « Serves the purpose »

    This location is becoming a bit worn and dated. The mattress was comfortable, but I did not like the trendy little square pillows. I could not get my neck in a comfortable position. I should remember to pack my own pillow, I guess. The room seemed clean enough. The TV and wifi worked. Breakfast was served, but was the typical buffet breakfast for Best Western. We did not eat it. There is not much to choose from, hotel-wise- in this little town. We stay here occasionally when visiting family.

    I contacted Best Western Eunice in order to get rates and reserve a room for my wife while she is there on business. I spoke with "Mr. GARY" and had a great experience. He was very helpful and courteous with setting up a reservation for a room for my wife. I explained the situation and he was very understanding. Mr. Gary was very friendly, and took care of things very quickly, and made it a wonderful experience. If I could give them a better rating than 5-excellent on here I would.

It is open - I mean you open the door and the you see your car parked outside. I liked that, got some fresh air in the room this way. B'Fast was complimentary but very very basic. Good wi-fi speed.
