    Great Stay

    Very clean, comfortable beds. I like how they have the remote in a baggy. The pillows were great. The pillow cases are marked with Soft or firm. The breakfast was fantastic.

    Great service.

    Very kind desk service, and the staff was superb all around. Very friendly and helpful, and kind enough to allow us to have a lobby-style picnic in the early evening. A recommended property for sure.

  • 6.0.Good

    I'm sure they were short-staffed and overloaded as many of the guests were refugees from the New Orleans area, but my room had been used by a smoker and not adequately cleaned.

    Not Bad All Things Considered

    The facility was convenient for our trip, staying four nights. The cons: * Room was not ready when we arrived. We went to visit relatives, they said they would call when the room was ready. I had to call them. * They requested we specify the level of service for our stay, which we did. They were not consistent. One day, our room was not cleaned at all. We arrived back at the room too late for remediation at that point. * I believe they are short-handed at this time, which probably explains some or all of the cons. Pros: * The staff was very friendly, and helpful. * The breakfast buffet was outstanding. * Parking was on-site and easy. The facility was at capacity, due to many Louisiana evacuees from Hurricane Larry. We saw many dogs with guests. Not sure if the hotel is pet friendly, or they're making accommodation for the evacuees. I was okay with that, although some might not be. I will stay at this facility again in the future. I do believe they are the top choice in Forest.
