When I called to book my appointment the lady that booked me was amazing. Her name started with an S. I'm terrible with names. We hit off. The check-in process was easy. The room was nice an clean. My favorite part of this hotel is the social hours Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights; they have a small meal and beer and or wine for two hours. The breakfast was great. Had many options. Everything tasted wonderful. This is my 2nd time staying at this hotel and it is my favorite!

I had a nice, quiet week-long stay here. It was after football season so it wasn't annoyingly busy, but I can imagine during football season it would be packed as it is only a couple of minutes from LSU and the stadium. The bed was very comfortable and my sleep was never disturbed. The kitchen is the size of most in-room kitchens. The room was spacious with many sitting areas and multiple conveniently placed electrical outlets. The thermostat can be set to auto so that the fan only turns on when the heat/air runs, or on so that the fan constantly runs; it made it easier to sleep. The large space and separated bedroom are conducive to getting work done. There's a fitness center, a business center, and complimentary breakfast every morning including fresh-cut fruit. They're also pet-friendly. There are 2 elevators and they move quickly so you're not stuck waiting after you call it or spending minutes in the elevator.

The staybridge is very conveniently located to eat the lsu campus. The rooms are large and even contain a small kitchen. WiFi and breakfast are provided. I've had a very pleasant stay.

Rooms are spacious and have all the amenities. Would be better for a long term stay and a family. As a short term stay, quality is so so. Doesn't feel overly clean. Beds comfortable and clean though

Possibly the best hotel in the area. Staff is very nice & accommodating. Minutes from LSU Tiger Stadium and the basketball arena where Odell Beckham & Shaq played sports. It's pretty cool!! You can use a full gym next door during your stay it's great.

The location was very convenient for me since I was attending orientation at LSU. The room was very clean, and I loved that it had a kitchen with its own pots and dishes. I didn't get to try the breakfast, but a coworker said it was good. I was only there for one night, but the staff I met were nice and helpful, especially about late checkout.

The room was absolutely lovely, and I would have felt right at home if I'd had an extended stay. The hotel was located within minutes of the 4 different things I had to do throughout my visit, so that saved a considerable headache for someone that hates driving in city traffic. I've stayed there before; I'll stay there again.

Great room which was clean and quiet! Our room wasn't quite ready when we checked in but was ready in 15 minutes. Staff was still apologizing the next day that it wasn't ready. Would definitely stay again if in the area.

The most convenient hotel for game day hands down. You can see the stadium from the hotel. It's dog friendly and breakfast is included. The rooms are clean and spacious. You can also walk to a few restaurants and bars around the area.

Suites right down the street from tiger stadium. Good place to crash on a non game day for cheap. It gets pricey around the football games and other events

Rooms were nice. Service was good. Free breakfast doesn't include many items and the food wasn't the best, but it was free. Same with the food at social hour but the real benefit there is the free beer and wine.

Comfortable bedrooms with enough space. The kitchen is a bit small but it's all you will probably need during your stay at the hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful, the breakfast is really good.

It is conveniently located next to LSU. Great for hosting guests, visitors to LSU. Most of my visitors find it very good. Repeat visitors often request that place But during game days difficult to get the place.

Check in was easy and fast. Location is great, right next LSU campus. Continental breakfast was the usual you see at every hotel that offers. Rooms were great for a small family. Service was great, no problems.

I was very disappointed with this hotel. I chose it because of all of the good ratings but it was a mistake. I had to stay here several nights and the rooms were not cleaned well at all. The first night I walked across the floor with wet feet after I got out of the shower and there was so much hair on the bottom of my feet I had to get back in the shower. Disgusting. They didn't replace towels or soaps even once they were used. My friend had the same issues as well as the bed not being made properly. Housekeeping must be rushing and not paying attention to details.

We spent three nights here while attending the 2015 Louisiana Marathon. The staff was extremely friendly, the beds were very comfortable and the room was very clean. There were restaurants within walking distance and LSU was very close by. Better than expected. If we return to Baton Rouge, we will definitely stay here again.
