Our stay was very satisfactory. The breakfast at the next door restaurant was a wonderful buffet. The only problem we experienced was a broken ice machine near our room. Otherwise there were no problems.

Always a great experience. The breakfast buffet is one of the best that you can get from any hotel. The staff is always pleasant and helpful. The room I had was spacious. The room had a refrigerator, stove, dishes, a microwave and utensils.

A very comfortable small town friendly experience. Great service, great food, and reasonable prices. I would recommend this lovely hotel to anyone travelling in the SW Louisiana area. When we have a family reunion, my siblings and other relatives all stay at the Forest!

I could not have stayed at a better place for the days needed for a family member funeral. All of the staff members were so friendly and great!!! The restaurant at the Best Western Forest Inn has wonderful food and very convenient hours. I enjoyed the authentic Cajun food and the breakfast buffet is awesome!!! Thank you for everything!!!

Hotel & staff were nice. Restaurant was good for dinner. We had stayed before, and chose to stay again this year during Tour du Teche canoe race. Only problems were minor - our room was at back of motel area & internet didn't work in far area of room.
