Verified Reviews of Hotel Francis

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great Hotel. Staff Very Friendly."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We arrived with a baseball group of 10 boys and their families. Ashley was very efficient and friendly considering we all arrived at the same time with a room full of restless boys all ready to go fishing and swimming. The outdoor area was the best. Plenty of room for the boys to run around without disturbing the other guests. We were also allowed to cook outdoors. Overall, we had a great weekend and will plan to stay at the hotel again if we travel to this part of Louisiana for a baseball tournament.
