"Heading back to east Texas from Georgia we didn't know where we would spend the night and we finally chose Monroe, LA as a stopping point. I booked the hotel through the Marriott Bonvoy app on my phone and checked in at the same time. Checking in at the hotel was a breeze, just picked up our key and went to the room. As for dinner options, the hotel is several miles from downtown Monroe and it didn't seem there were many restaurant choices near the hotel. That night the hotel offered a manager's reception with wine and beer, snacks and tacos. Dinner plans solved. The complimentary breakfast was typical for an Interstate hotel. The room was very clean, the bed comfortable and it was quiet. I did find the tub to be a bit slippery, handhold bars are needed. When the sun went down, we used the pool to cool off and relax. The only negative is that they allow smoking in their outdoor sitting areas which was annoying and should be banned in my opinion. We really didn't want to have to smell cigarette smoke while we swam. For what it's worth, the hotel seemed to have three types of clientele, business folks, older travelers and construction workers. Overall this hotel lives up to the Marriott Bonvoy brand."
"This is a relatively new Fairfield Inn and in excellent condition. Absolutely no complaints about the physical plant. Very nice. Now for the downsides: first of all, good luck finding this place after dark. Use Exit 113 (no sign on the Interstate), go south then turn back west on a service road where the hotel is 1/2 mile away. The check in clerk was very rude and of no help when I called for directions. Finally, you may view this as a plus or a minus, but I stayed in seven hotels on this trip and this one was by far the most restrictive in terms of Covid. The "breakfast" was a tray of Walmart sweet rolls and little bottles of water. No fitness center, pool, etc. open. Very bare bones. Maybe this is a Louisiana thing. If you can find it, get a pleasant check in, and when it returns to full service, this would be a five star place."
"Clean, bright, large rooms, nice large breakfast area, easy access to freeway (I-20), had a quiet relaxing stay for 2 nights at this venue. There are not any restaurants within walking distance so do need transportation."
