    Parking area needs to be larger. Hotel was clean & orderly. Staff at check in & check out helpful & professional. Room needs to be updated (painted & drywall repair needed). Breakfast was fresh & hot, coffee was excellent.

    « Fantastic front desk staff »

    We arrived in Natchitoches late last night with our dog and hadn't had the foresight to make reservations. We generally count on Best Western because they're so dog friendly! Dustin the front desk night staff person at the Natchitoches Best Western went above and beyond in helping us find somewhere nearby. He is a very bright, helpful young man! We appreciate the quality of service we received even though there was no room available!

    « I'm back to stay, since the remodel »

    This has been my usual place to stay for many many years. I left and started using comfort suites but had a few cleaning issues there and for the price i come here. 20 plus bucks a night less adds up when I'm here 3 or 4 nights. Anyway the staff always remembers me and i get a great price. Its usually clean and i get a good quiet nights rest. I donwish they were smole free but I stay other end. Nothing special here bit for the money i will choose this hotel every time. Please keep it clean and quiet at this price.

    « Close to Christmas Festival »

    Overall, this was a great, clean hotel! It was a short 5-10 minute drive to downtown Natchitoches. We had complimentarily breakfast each morning. Perfect for visiting the festival when you don't want to pay the bed and breakfast price.

    « I have it another shot... and it was ok. »

    I stoped using this hotel because of smoke and dogs but had a free BW night card and had to use it so I got 1st night free then paid the second night. The young lady at the front desk checking me in was great... I do like the appearance of the remodeled lobby is good gonna basic hotel although they need boot scrapers at the door... anyway my room was quiet, but there was toothpaste on the back of the bathroom door. Having one free n ight made this a better deal for sure but as I said unfortunately they allow smoming on one end of hotel... and they are pet friendly... i sucked it up to use my free night brfore it expired... for the price i am happy and will most likely come again if I have a voucher. The breakfast is the same microwave stuff but the sausage was NOT HOT so I had tonnuke it BOTH DAYS i was there. Parking is very good and secure. Several restaurants are walking distance and the sound of the road is not bad.

    « Great place to stay »

    This is one of the great locations for Best Western. There are several choices nearby but I believe this is the best choice. Clean rooms very helpful staff, and great location. The food is OK but none of the places we have stayed are all that good. But it's a great value.

    Most of our kids had plans for Thanksgiving this year so we decided to go to Natchitoches for a few days. Nice little town with one of the best Christmas light displays along the Cane river that we have seen! Great weekend!

    « Wonderful Overnight with mutts »

    I had been on the road for days and decided to stay over. The front desk was wonderful and my two small dogs were permitted and pampered. The room was very new and the property was in terrific shape. Breakfast was very good. This is a very good stop.

    room was good, breakfast needs help, ran out of some of the food, but it was crowed. small area, close to restaurants several to chose from, when in area again would return back to this location, everyone was friendly and helpful

    « Close to Interstate »

    A standard BW with everything OK, nothing special. A bit hard to find the driveway in initially. A 10 minute drive into town. We didn't try their breakfast as there is an I Hop close by and it was the choice for that day. Standard pull off the Interstate place.

    We had a wonderful stay in a very clean and comfortable hotel. Thanks to Dustin for his friendliness and professionalism. The hotel had a wonderful fragrance when you walked in. Housekeeping staff very friendly. Would recommend a stay at this hotel. We will probably be coming back to visit the city for a few days and will DEFINITELY be staying here!

    Good: Breakfast, Staff, Cleanliness, Bathroom, Location, Blackout curtains, AC Avg: room size, setup, TV, Lighting Bad: Hard bed = no sleep = very bad experience, So-so internet Will be looking for place with better bed. Will probably have to trade something for it. Other hotels near this one are worse.

    « Great location & friendly staff »

    As we were traveling it has a great location on/off highway. Biggest factor is they do have some smoking rooms. For a smoker these are far & few between. Makes for a comfortable experience to not have to stand outside.

    « Expensive but Works »

    I enjoyed the pampering I received upon checkin. I had a clean room, amenities quality. Breakfast was yummy and a good way to start the day. Had alittle bit very every taste. Parking lot was clean and good repair. Close to many activities.

    « Clean and comfortable »

    We stayed here and didn't expect much since it's directly off the interstate in a busy area of fast food, hotels and gas stations. We were pleasantly surprised. This is a clean and comfortable hotel with a friendly staff, a good breakfast and nice touches. We loved the lobby dog, Daisy "Days Inn." We loved how pleasant the room was with comfortable beds, a nice chair to sit in, a fridge, microwave and a desk for working. The bathroom was updated. The pet fee is $20.

    I stayed here overnight on a business trip in the area. I was quite surprised on how nice this quaint Hotel is. The staff that I encountered we're all warm and welcoming. The room was clean and spacious with a comfortable bed, a comfortable working area, and a comfortable lounge chair. I would definitely stay here again when in the area.

    Clean, comfortable rooms. Employees polite, courteous and friendly. On one morning, my husband was having problems with his diabetes. The breakfast area was closed, but the lady in there went above and beyond to open the kitchen to get him some food and juice. Thank you so much ! This was our 2nd trip (first in 2016 for honeymoon and in 2017 for anniversary. We will be back. Plus, it is a pet friendly hotel.

    « Leisure trip »

    Just a little get away. It has been several years since we stayed here. Property was clean. Reservation was painless. Dustin greeted us warmly. The room was very clean as well as the bathroom. Excellent room. A couple of hiccups, first I tried to adjust the shower head, the arm going into the wall just extremely loose, notified the front desk. second was the wifi. It would drop connection in about 30 seconds. Called and talked to front desk Dustin who said the wifi was working, so I rebooted my ipad, cleared the history, still drop connection, so I thought it may be my ipad, not so because we went on to Shreveport and the wifi worked great at the hotel there. Still I rate the hotel as excellent. It was a great hotel

    « Stayed one night but perfect for what we needed! »

    Just passing through on our way to Gulfport/Biloxi. I called ahead earlier in the day to get a reservation and talked to Dustin. He was very helpful and when we got there at 11:00pm he remembered my name and made checking in very easy. Clean hotel and good breakfast!

    Title just about says it all - hotel was clean, decent priced and staff was extremely friendly. I called early and asked for an early check in. Was no problem at all! Front desk had everything ready when we got there. Quiet area (or was on our weeknight) and was a good stay. Will stay again if we go to Natchitoches.

    « Wonderful Service and Nice Room/Breakfast. »

    The inn has excellent service and rooms. I would recommend it unless you want internet service. The internet service goes in and out. I love the fact that they had fresh fruit for breakfast. So many hotels don't provide this anymore.

    « Vacation »

    The hotel was very clean, and the young lady that assisted us at check in was very friendly, however, the accolades stop there. The bed was very hard and uncomfortable and the air conditioning did not keep the room cool during the night. We would have requested another room because of the situation with the air, but, we were too tired to change rooms in the middle of the night. When we addressed the issue the following morning, we were told that that was a "Melissa issue" and that Melissa was not there. I asked about a reduction in our rate and could not get an answer. The breakfast was awful. We have marked that one off the list.

    « Comfortable Stay »

    Friendly staff from start to finish. Comfortable king-size bed with standard room amenities. Nice clean room and bathroom. We enjoyed their hot breakfast before we continued on our trip. We will definitely stay there again.

    « Overbooked King Room. »

    No king available even though I had reservation. Queen Bed not comfy. Hate those foa pillows that are bulky. Elevator wasn't working next morning. Plenty of hot water. Very clean. But smoking rooms available. I like total no smoking properties.

    5
    « Clean and nice breakfast »

    Very clean and well appointed rooms. Friendly staff at both check in and check out. Breakfast has very attentive staff member who is constantly cleaning and restocking and making sure everyone is happy. Hotel is pet friendly with an additional charge of $20.00 per night per pet. I had a little difficulty finding the property since the signage is very small and I did not arrive by way of Interstate 49 which has a large sign on it. This hotel is directly behind the IHOP and next door to the Days Inn and in front of the Holiday Inn. There is a driveway which is basically unmarked from the road.

    « Nice hotel/motel »

    The hotel/motel is a little hard to find among all the other motel/hotels, but it was a perfect for and overnight stay while on the road.. The town of Natchitoches is a nice little town. The staff are all good, especially the breakfast lady.

    « Best value in Natchitoches, Louisiana for an a very good hotel »

    Of the several hotels in the Natchitoches, the Best Western is the best value. A very good hotel in all respects at a price lower that others that are no better. Good service, good breakfast, and above all, a good room with quiet A/C, good TV, good bed, and a fridge and microwave.

    « Relaxation »

    Very nice and clean even wile construction on remodeling was going on. The staff could be more Importable about their location and things going on in the area. The rooms were very neat and clean AC worked well beds were very comfortable.

    « Study Break »

    Needed a simple break away to de-stress. Hectic 3 weeks plus final exam left me needing to change scenes and my location. Daughter invited me to ride along with her because she was attending a wedding, so decided it would be a good opportunity to do so.

    « Slightly disappointed »

    Still love Best Western, but I was pretty upset. The shower faucet handle was installed wrong, making the cold direction hot, and the hot direction cold, even though it's clearly labeled which way should the right way. As I turned the handle to cold, it burnt and startled me enough that I jumped back, causing me to slip, fall through the shower curtain, landing on the tile floor. I wasn't seriously injured, but it certainly hurt quite a bit, leaving a few ribs feeling bruised.

    « Owners pet dog greets you at your vehicle »

    I'm a dog owner, and was aware that this was a pet friendly hotel, but was also told that they do not put guest with pets on the 2nd floor. Well, unless people have learned to bark like dogs, the hotel front desk staff lied to me and my guests. The first night I did not hear any barking, but night number two, there were several dogs barking especially around the times of (6:00pm - 10:00pm).

    « Very good place »

    We stayed one night and it was clean, quiet, and comfortable. Breakfast was a little above average for this type of motel with both hot and cold selections. The only negative was that the Wi-fi in our room never did work for more than 15 minutes. Marlon even came up to our room to try his best to get it to work, but it never much did.

    « Overnight stay. »

    This was probably one of the nicest Best Westerns I have ever stay at. I was pleasantly surprised by how nice and modern the decor of the front lobby and the rooms was. The front desk Girl was very nice and courteous. We booked a smoking room through tripadvisor because it was $10 cheaper and we were on a budget. I didn't even know smoking rooms still existed, but I was surprised by the hospitality of the front desk girl when she moved us to a nonsmoking room for no additional cost. The rooms were quiet and clean the beds were very big and very comfortable. Nice clean bathroom and the Ac worked very well. The only downside to be completely honest was having to leave. I would love to go back and visit again soon. I didn't get up in time for the breakfast but the dinning area was very nice and clean when I walked through to go to my car after check out. All in all I definitely will be staying again next time I'm in the area. Cheers.

    « Wonderful Staff »

    Very friendly and clean hotel. Staff was wonderful and helpful. First time to stay in a Best Western but was very pleased with staff and quality of the hotel. Breakfast area staff and front desk staff was over and beyond their service compared to most hotels we have stayed at.

    « Last minute stay wonderful! »

    We checked four motels at the last minute. We had to stop driving. It was late and we were tired. one of the places was a Days Inn. They had people out front in lawn chairs grilling out. It was very sketchy! Then we went to the Best Western. It was $5.00 less than the Days Inn and was a perfect suite. The bed was so comfortable. The young man that checked us in was very polite and accommodating. I think his name was Marson. It was extremely clean and very quiet. I would recommend this place to anyone. Two thumbs up!!!

    « Great home away from home. »

    Nice clean comfortable room. Arrived on a very hot, humid day and was offered a cold bottle of water during check in. Full breakfast in nice atmosphere with friendly staff. Pool area well kept. Since hotel is located just off of I49, it is near gas station and convenience store, which is great for travelers. If you are running late, they also have "grab & go" bags with water & snacks to get you on your way. Talk about Southern Hospitality.

    « Crooks »

    Went to Natchitoches on Friday a day before a friends wedding ....we arrived at this hotel and the computers were down ..once the computers came up 2 hours later I gave our confirmation number that was given to me by the clerk that I spoke with by phone when I made the reservation for that Friday ..we were told that that the confirmation number for the reservation was not in the system and that they had been having problems with the system but they did have a vaccancy. WHEN I MADE MY RESERVATION I ALSO WAS TOLD I COULD GET AN GOVERNMENT RATE AND THAT DID NOT HAPPEN WHEN I FINALLY CHECKED IN AFTER I WAS TOLD I COULD HAVE IT WHEN I CALLED THE HOTEL DIRECTLY AND MADE MY RESERVATION FOR THAT FRIDAY...WARNING!!! do not call this hotel directly go thru a 2nd party as far as making reservations so that you can have some kind of record via email or recorded phone calls. I WAS CHARGED FOR AN RESERVATION DATE THAT I DID NOT EVEN MAKE !!!!!!!!! Called the Hotel about it today after checking my statements..have to say Ms.Melissa tried to assist me and was very professional...even after explaining to her that I was told that the clerk (the day of my check in) told me once the computers came up that I was not in the system with a confirmed reservation... So now Im out of $103.50... when I checked out my bill did not display that extra charged .. Crooks...that is how I personally feel about this hotel...and definetly not worth staying for 115.00.

    « worst stay ever »

    did know info about it being pet friendly the owners dog walked into the breakfast area as if we were guest-maybe he's right ,it is a health violation, the bed was the worst i have had two sleep on out of staying in places around the world . i thought that it was just me ;however my wife expressed the same our backs are just now recovering. my son was in another part of the hotel he said he had trouble sleeping on the beds. the second night i was up all night trying to recover from dog allergies. the animals should be in just one area of the facility. the beds are bad, the staff was unresponsive when i told them about my experience. i was supposed to have an executive suit , it never happen i was placed in room 209 ,a regular room , it was a bad experience completely , the staff kept lying about putting cookies out they did not after the first day,this place doesn't represent the company well.absolutely the worst, i stayed there years earlier it was fine. i don't know what happen.i can be reached at 678-392-9155 , one staff member told me he would try to discount my stay he never followed up .the dog that ventures to all the hotels owned by the same person allows the dog access throughout, in fact the dog follows staff around and he was in my room with the cleaning lady or the maintenance man based on my allergic reaction. after that incident i did not allow the cleaners back in my room ,i just requested towels. this was bad. internet didn't even work. the breakfast area only had pork product, and i do not eat them. the eggs had no flavor.the juice was good and the instant oats and grits were also good.

    « Great price, wonderful staff »

    The staff was very helpful, welcoming and friendly. Room was clean, hotel - although older - was clean and taken care of. Next door is a gas station with a bakery, liquor store and convenience store. The bakery is to die for and there is a little eating area there as well. Great location. Will definitely book again.

    « "Best" Place To Be »

    « computer mistake in reservation »

    After checking our reservation twice beforehand, we were told on arrival that we had been "upgraded" to a king bed with studio couch. Two queen beds were needed for occupents! No other room was available. Couch was lumpy with steel springs. Not good for person's concentration at next day business conference!

    « The Louisiana Flood of March 8, 9, and 10, 2016! »

    Hotel Staff were very hospitable, and available at all hours of the day. Rooms were clean, beds were firm and pillows soft. A/C worked great as did the shower/tub. Breakfast was stocked, hot, ready and waiting for all who came to eat. They had Newspapers on the tables for all to enjoy and the television was on the weather channel for all to check out which roads had been closed due to heavy rain and flash flooding. Due to the bad weather the internet service was going in and out so the clerk could not check us in electronically but took care of our billing by hand and told us when the internet was back up they would call us and send our documentation out electronically. They did not hassle us for the routine signature that is normally needed when you check in with pets. We received our documentation with in an hour or so. There is a fitness room and all equipment was in proper working condition. Even with all the commotion of people looking for rooms and such it was very quiet even on the first floor which we were on. Very convenient to a few restaurants (IHOP, Wendy's and Popeye's) which came in handy since roads were closed going in to Natchitoches. There is a gas station which also serves food, desserts, snack items, alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages, NSU University memorabilia plus the usual odd and ends. There are 3 or 4 other hotels right next to each other in this area as well.

    « Poor reservation system »

    We reserved a handicapped room and was checked into a non-handicapped room, then was offered a room with a proper toilet but NOT shower, etc. I had to refuse both rooms and request to speak to the manager before I was finally offered the room reserved, 45 minutes later.

    We were a group of six, three couples. We selected this hotel at random because they offered a picnic area. They far exceeded our expectations.

    « Normally a decent place to stay. »

    I have stayed here many times and it is normally a decent place to stay. However, when I went to my room the door was already open and the floor was really wet. I'm guessing that they just had a number of the carpets cleaned. Which is good but after moving rooms 3 or 4 times I just got irritated. The final room they assigned me to the carpet was still slightly damp. But, I didn't want to bother them anymore.

    « Clean & Convenient for Road Trips »

    This place is clean and the staff is friendly. If you're road-tripping (we were driving from Florida to Texas) it's conveniently located right off 49. We chose this place instead of the many other hotels located in the same cluster because it's dog-friendly for just a $20 fee - and the nightly rate was only $95. The only bad thing is there are very few restaurant options near the hotel and almost no restaurant delvers to the hotel (no Pizza Hut, Dominos, Papa John's, etc) so eat on the road or bring something with you before you check in.

    « Nice hotel »

    We stayed one night to see the Christmas festival. Our check in and out was very friendly and efficient. Our rooms were large and comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful and offered a wide variety of food choices. Only thing that needed improvement was getting in and out of the hotel. There are several hotels squished together all sharing the same driveway . Poorly designed but a minor inconvenience. Overall I would stay at this hotel again should be in Natchitdoches.

    « Great Pet Friendly Stay in Natchitoches »

    Booked on night here because they are pet friendly. Stayed an extra night because this Best Western is REALLY nice and there's so much to do in Natchitoches. Plenty of grass for the puppies. Great breakfast. Super friendly staff. Walking distance to IHOP and a great place for meat pies. We loved this place so much that we stayed the extra day here.

    « Ok stay, they allow dogs which was very helpful »

    I am a die-hard loyal Hilton member so staying at a non-Hilton brand was hard for me, but had to be done because we were bringing our dog to Natchitoches. The Hampton Inn across the street doesn't allow pets, so the Best Western was the next best option. Overall, we found a pretty good rate and I was greeted with friendly service by all of the Best Western staff. The room was pretty clean and no major issues. The TV didn't work, but with a dog in the room it would have been more of a hassle having maintenance come in to try and fix it and dealing with some possible barking while the dog was crated. Breakfast was better than expected, and again the lady who ran the breakfast was very friendly and accommodating. The parking lot and whole surrounding area was just so narrow and felt crowded. It was very hard to find a parking space, without worrying that I would either be blocked in or my car hit by the next morning. There was more parking on the other side of the building, but the issue with that is it was much more isolated. We arrived late one night after seeing the fireworks downtown, to find 2 homeless people walking around and a cop also walking around. Not to mention there was a robbery at this hotel only a few days prior, so safety was definitely a concern. It was one of those hotels you make sure you deadbolt the door, and double check the windows were locked completely. If I were to come back to Natchitoches with my dog, I would probably stay here again, but only by default. If I were back without the dog I would not come back, but mostly because I am a spoiled Hilton traveler.

    « We always stay at this hotel »

    My son loves this hotel and we have stayed here several times. We love getting up in the morning for Breakfast. My son feels so comfortable there, at 7 years old, I was able to send him to the front desk for more shampoo. We love the free cookies and free internet. it is one of the nicest Best Western Hotels I have ever stayed in. of course the B & B's are lovely in Natchitoches and I wouldn't try to steer you away from those, but this is a great second choice! We love it and it is a first choice for us.

Tried to check in at 2pm on a Friday and were told there were no rooms ready (hard to believe) . . . come back at 3. No hot water when getting ready to check out Sunday morning. Location was as handy as any motel in area to Christmas events (they're all grouped together at Interstate 49 exit). Room was clean and modern. Breakfast staff kept the buffet filled. Selection was not as good as other inclusive hotels we've stayed at and the egg and bacon hot tray didn't kept things hot. The holiday weekend activities were lots of fun, but I'd try the Holiday or Hampton Inn the next time.

    « Festival of lights »

    Excellent location for the festival. We stayed 2 nights and were very pleased with our stay. The room was clean and up to date. Staff were friendly and helpful. Didn't care for the breakfast but there was a good variety of hot and cold choices. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to everyone.

    « Went to see the lights! »

    My husband, my parents, and I stayed here 3 nights to see the Xmas lights, and generally view the area. The room was great, and was very clean when we would return in the evenings. The breakfast was delicious, and the front desk ladies were very helpful. But, the internet was slow and unreliable. If that's not important to you, then this is the place to stay. It is conveniently located to an IHOP and a convenience store.

    « Very Nice Hotel »

    Very clean,friendly staff. The room was clean and had everything you needed. Easy to get to. Price was very reasonable. The bed was so soft I slept like a baby. I was so tired. It was quite. There was no trouble, like some places I have stayed at before.

    « Short Stay »

    I would recommend this hotel for a short stay only. The breakfast was what is expected, the housekeeping was excellent (room was very clean) and the staff were nice, but the room we stayed in needed some fixing. Very large ceiling stains (paint was pealing off), musty smell, and the a/c barely worked.

    We made a reservation for one night and ended up staying two. Nachitoches is a lovely place to visit and the Christmas lights are a major draw. Hotel was very comfortable, pet friendly and accommodated our added Saturday night's stay.

    « Weekend in Natchitoches »

    We came to Natchitoches for the Christmas lights and fireworks and decided to make a weekend of it. For our last minute trip, we booked a room at the Best Western. It was conveniently located to Downtown. The room was reasonably priced and very clean and comfortable. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The price was very reasonable for the value. Thanks to the entire staff for a very pleasant experience.

    « Nice room - good breakfast »

    This was a good hotel - the desk people were very friendly. Breakfast was standard, but hot and there was plenty, with an attendant there to check on things and she was very friendly also. The bed was very comfortable. The only criticism I might have on the room was that there weren't very many plug-ins to charge phones, iPads, etc.

    « Great Stay »

    We stayed at Best Western in Natchitoches during family visit Oct 26-30 and celebrated our wedding anniversary. The room was very nice as was the breakfast. Staff friendly and motel was quiet and restful at night. This was our first time at a Best Western and found it as nice as any other.

    « Football Game Weekend »

    The hotel was clean and the bed was comfortable. The major complaint I have is that the temperature in the room was hard to control. We were either sweating profusely or curled up in blankets...no happy medium. Also the bathroom fan was missing and there were exposed pipes and wires dangling from the ceiling. Would I stay here again? Probably not just based on those two things.

    « Great place! »

    The room was great. It had a small refrigerator as well as a microwave. There was also a small sofa with coffee table. I loved being able to have a sitting area separate from the bed. We had a view of the outdoor pool. However, we were too busy with sightseeing to get to enjoy it. Sleeping was great as we did not hear any outside noises from the hallway or stairs. The staff always greeted us. The front desk clerk (sorry did not get her name) after we checked in called our room to be sure we were happy with our accommodations. When we checked out the same clerk wish us a safe trip home.

    This motel is good in all the right ways. We had a very pleasant experience. They met all our needs. The rooms were at the top end for service and cleaniness. Location is on the hwy. not too far from the town center

    « My experience »

    Hotel was fine except there was an odor in the room when you walked in. We didn't report the problem. Stayed there before with same problem. Just a funky odor. Other than that everything was great. Probably won't stay here again unless other hotels are full.

    « Excellent Staff »

    Michelle at the front desk was extremely helpful and kind. The room was very clean and quiet. The next morning, after checking out and being on the road for about 10 minutes, we realized that we had left one of our phone chargers in the room. We phoned the hotel and they told us that they have it at the front desk by the time we git there to pick it up.

    « My place to stay when visiting Natchitoches »

    I have stayed here a number of times. My sister was visiting from PA and I wanted to make her visit special as it was her first to the area. Room was great. Spacious, linens were top quality, breakfast offered many choices and they even accommodated a special request of my sister. Made the experience great for her, which was my goal. When I know I need to have good quality, good service for a reasonable price I can always count on Best Western.

    Everything was wonderful except Internet connection did not work at all. The staff was very friendly. The Ice machine did not work on the second floor either and the coke machine stole our money. But overall we were pleased.

    « Ok for price. Bad remodeling job »

    This hotel has been remodeled , very old,remodeling job was not very good.The halls smelled smoke terribly. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was good, however breakfast area was too small to accomodate everyone. Air in room worked very well however it was very loud.
