I get it. Downtown Baton Rouge is fun and always seems to have something going on..especially around some great LSU football games! This place was...just like the owner said...very convenient to downtown. I had no idea what type neighborhood we were in, but one of the tenants in the building....now these are his words, not mine...told me that “even though there are a few homeless people hanging around the street, it’s a great place.”. Personally, even though I did see a few, it was NO big deal, and we felt totally safe.
His place isn’t exactly new, and there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s clean and fairly comfortable. But the place needs some TLC. We had an unfortunate big water leak in the kitchen ceiling which pretty much blocked our access Friday night to the refrigerator & half the kitchen. And the kitchen water faucet leaked badly, but we didn’t discover that until it soaked us. No...it wasn’t the end of the world..to us, anyway..and even though he was apologetic, I would’ve thought the owner should have offered us some small refund for our inconvenience. After all, we had to mop the place up and keep an eye on the water buckets and ceiling for him. After coming over Friday night to check on it, he never mentioned it again, which surprised me because his communication after our reservation & prior to our arrival was great. One thing he hit the nail on the head concerned the bus transport to the LSU stadium. The pickup spot was about a block down the street, at a great little hole-in-the-wall bar/restaurant. Very much appreciated this place & it’s service before and after the game.
Really, even though my team came and got whooped by a very good LSU team, we had a good game experience with all the unexpectedly gracious Tiger fans we met!
