TravelPod Member ReviewsQuality Suites Baton Rouge
Front Desk Associate (Vinni) was very pleasant, helpful, professional and posessed a charming smile & dissposition. He made us feel very welcome and was informative about the area and places to eat.
The Breakfast area was clean & well stocked with a full breakfast. Rooms were immaculate and well stocked with towels & supplies. Area was quiet. We felt safe staying there. Vinni allowed us to park our motorcycles up on the sidewalk, directly in front of a security camera, which eased our minds from not being able to see our bikes from our rooms. Motel is 3 floors but has an elevator to the rooms, Easy access. Wonderful Experience !!!
