    This hotel was nothing like advertised, based off of the pictures, we thought we were getting a clean room. Our room had mold, mildew, rust, and dead bugs. We could not stay at this property and ended up leaving.

    Well the only thing about this place was the gentleman who came add a lock Bc my door wouldn’t close or lock and they had no more available rooms! Over all… gross, can’t get any workers, outdated and way over priced for a room like that! But overall 2/10 for the help from the nice man!!!

    Fear for your life!

    The pictures look better. The outside of the property is like a run down meth lab renting out rooms by the hour. Their 'lake view' is a mere dirty pond with plastic chairs in them. The rooms were clean buy old bath rooms. Stay here...fear for your life.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    This hotel worked out fine for us - although a bit always from our original reserved destination of Baton Rouge which got cancelled due to storm responses apparently needing hotels in area… grounds/rounds are a little rough and obviously there was a previous storm a few weeks prior - the roads definitely need fixed. Room was solid for the price!

    Horrible. Buyer beware.

    The property was disgusting. The room charge was non-refundable, but our whole group decided to eat the $93 cost of the room, and book at a nicer property. Three days later, the hotel charged us $250 with no explanation. The hotel manager will not return calls. We have filed a dispute with credit card company. The only positive is the woman at the front desk was very nice and helpful.

    False advertising. It’s a dirty motel, not a “stunning hotel”. Don’t spend your money here.

    Not happy…

    Long story short. I am a first responder and was traveling to the area right after a hurricane. Booked the room on hotels.com for 95 a night, received a email from the hotel manager stating that they didn’t have my reservation and no rooms available. They cancelled my reservation but the room popped back up on hotels.com for 145.99 a night. I booked the room at 145 because due to the hurricane nothing else was available. Upon my arrival, The room was not clean and I spotted several cockroaches.

    We were on evacuation from Hurricane Ida and the staff made our stay great and took some of the stress off is at such a stressful time. The staff was very helpful, compassionate and professional during our stay. The free breakfast and dinner were very delicious and the breakfast and dinner cook were friendly and helpful the grounds were clean and well kept I would like to thank each and everyone of the staff at The Hotel Francis for making our stay great…Peggy Kennedy
