This is not the HIA Express I know. The facility has been renovated and the basic appearance is nice. The counter personnel are totally helpful. But, if staying in the handicap room bring a flashlight, or a torch - the lighting in the bathroom is totally insufficient. They do not change the towels, which are hard and scratch, each day...

Stopped at this hotel for the night on our way through taking my son to do an internship with Istrouma Baptist Church in Baton Rouge. Great place to stay. Staff was friendly and the room was very clean. The only issue we had was not enough outlets to plug in our phones. All 4 of us had our phones.
