Sad face IconDisliked: Staff & service
The room was adequate and well stocked which was great because it allowed us to not require the room to be cleaned each day which was important to us because we were being very Covid cautious. The television never worked properly. But most disappointing was the inconsistent application of Covid procedures we witnessed while we were there. Some employees wore masks. Some didn't. This included front desk staff and cleaning staff. Mu husband and I had quarantined ourselves for weeks before we came to Lafayette to meet our new grandson that was born in October. We wore our masks during the visit to ensure even more safety. It would have been nice to have stayed somewhere that also took precautions seriously.

We had a non smoking room. When we checked in the room smelled like cigarette smoke and a window was left open. The room didn’t feel like it was cleaned properly. The furniture and fixtures looked very outdated and damaged. A lizard jumped out of the AC vent when it was turned on and ran under the bed. We were moved to a new room, but felt the same way about that room other than the smell. Staff was great though.
