LOUD NOISE ALL NIGHT! Plantation Inn just west of Morgan City, out of city.

The room was what we expected for the price. No complaints there. HOWEVER, we didn't notice the train tracks just in back of the motel and 4 freight trains passed by during the time we should have been sleeping. A nearby RR-crossing kept those engineers on the horn. "BOOO-WHAAA!!!" But that's not all. At 4:30 AM a waste collection truck visited a line-up of four big box dumpsters in the adjacent parking lot, picking them up one at a time and proudly banging them each until there couldn't have been even a gum wrapper remaining. That's still not all. The desk clerk had cleverly put the only half-dozen room renters in a small group of rooms near each other. My wife & I seemed to be the only ones who actually wanted sleep. All night the patrons on either side of our room pounded on each others' doors, demanding to be let in and yelling loud profanities. Needless to say, we slept very little that night. Be fore-warned. If the rowdies don't get you, there's the dumpsters and if they put you on the other side of the motel from those, there's always that great all-night "train ride".
