The list would be a lot shorter is you listed the best or even acceptable hotels!Time2Spare said:Just wondering what your thoughts are on our WORST hotels.... just quality of hotel itself - nothing to do with surrounding area or things to do...
SHV is da bomb. Had a long overnight. Sat by the pool and watched the locals. They were entertaining. Went over to Waffle House and the gas station with the Subway attached. Even more entertaining.SpatialD said:Haven't stayed in any of the ones you mentioned, but SHV tops my list. The area is definitely a factor, but not because there's nothing to do (which there isn't), but the problem is the labor force they have to supply the housekeeping staff.
When I used to fly freight, we stayed in the Super8 across the street. My CA found a used condom in his bed (even though it had been made up and the room appeared to be clean). Upon further scrutiny, we determined that the maids were using the rooms to facilitate a thriving prostitution business there. I'm talking about crackwhores of the most unsavory sort.
Then, when I got this job, I was all excited about moving over to what appeared to be much nicer accomodations. I hung out in my room for a couple hours till I was ready to call it a night. Then I pulled back the covers to get in bed, and noticed that someone had been in it since it was last changed - there was hair all over the sheets! :x
Knowing what I know, I don't blame the hotel per se - it's just the area and the people they have available to work there. The only solution I can see is to get a new hotel away from the immediate area surrounding the airport.

Since we are just regional scum and can't stay in Manhattan like the CAL crews do for their long overnights, the Holiday Inn is the best there is near the airport. If we HAVE to stay close to the airport, they treat us the best.
You can throw XNA in there too, especially if it's a long overnightWhat's wrong with SLP? Nice hotel, lots of food and a Wal-mart nearby. My worst list:
Anything in the state of LA (Ok, LFT isn't so bad)
Anything in the state of MS
