Verified Reviews of Richmond Suites Hotel Lake Charles

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"I Will NEVER and I Mean EVER Stay Here Again!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
My experience here was probably the most awful hotel experience I have ever had. To start, we were told, once we got there, that the credit card machine was broken and we had to pay in cash. After being on the highway for 6 hours, the last thing you want to do is to have to go find an ATM. When we finally got up to the room, the card key did not work so we had to go back to the office and get another key. Once we finally got into the room, the mini fridge and the microwave had mold in it. The bathtub was BLACK, not brown, but BLACK. The toilet had black scum all around the rim and the A/C unit did not work. After complaining, we were moved to another room. The "new" room was even worse. The carpet was badly stained, there was a hat left there from the previous occupants, tub and toilet were in similar condition as the first room, and there was additional soap scum all over the tub. There was also hair in the hair dryer and a foul stench in the room.

"Long Term Stay"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Our family of four (2 adults, 2 children) stayed at this hotel for 5+ weeks. We loved the staff immediately. They were very accommodating and worked with our needs. We stayed in a room with a kitchen. We loved having the access to cook when we needed but also had free breakfast available. It was mostly just cereal and pastries, but it was nice to get out of the room for breakfast once in a while. The bedroom was very spacious and comfortable. We had room for a crib and a toddler mattress for our two kids and it wasn't cramped. The living space was rather small for all four of us, but I didn't expect too much. The kitchen was nice, except that our oven didn't close all the way. I had to put up a baby gate in the kitchen when I was using it. We had maintenance come and look at it but they couldn't figure it out. We also had fridge and toilet leak at one point and maintenance came quickly and fixed them. Overall, it was a decent stay. We got a great price on it. They were in the middle of renovating a lot of things, as they just had new ownership. So, we were extremely disappointed to see how dirty the pool was. In Southern Louisiana in August, the pool is a necessity. We played in it a couple of times because we were desperate for things to do with our kiddos. We didn't go very far into the water because the bottom of the pool was completely covered in dirt and we didn't want to stir it all up in the pool.

"Richmond Suites Staff was Very Professional and Kind."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
For being an older hotel, I found it to be very satisfactory and the price was very reasonable. Our group had 20 rooms for a one night stay and even though one or two rooms had small issues, the overall experience was great. The staff was very gracious and upgraded some of the adults to suites which was very nice and accommodating for our team meetings. I would stay at the Richmond suites again if I was in the area.
