Road trip to Naples, FL
Reviewed 24 July, 2021
Myself, my family and our golden retriever Boris stayed at Hotel Indigo during a recent road trip from Austin Texas to Naples Florida. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much as any hotel that accepts dogs is never going to be of a particularly high standard. The hotel is well located in what seems to be a reasonably safe part of Baton Rouge, the rooms are clean, modern and generally comfortable. I paid in advance for valet parking which turned out to be a parking lot behind the hotel with about 20 spaces (there was no valet) and generally the lot was full and difficult to find a space. Sleeping at the hotel was quite difficult due to the high levels of noise in the corridors of the hotel itself up to 3am, and also muscle cars immediately outside the hotel parading until 4am…Overall, for what the hotel costs, I couldn’t grumble.
On a side note, if I were to repeat this road trip again I wouldn’t stop in Baton Rouge. I drove out to pick up some food for my family the evening we were there, and overall found it to be a pretty depressed and intimidating place, poor suburbs with gangs hanging out on street corners at night. I am an experienced traveller who has travelled extensively throughout Africa, so I have been to some pretty rough places and I wouldn’t care to go back to Baton Rouge.
Very nice hotel just a block away from the mighty Mississippi River.

Very nice hotel. Room was clean and comfortable. We could look out and see the Mississippi River. Walked down to the river and then found a great pizza place a few blocks away. Staff at hotel was very friendly and the small bar was great for a nightcap.

It was old & dates. False advertisement saying they had Valet before booking, but when we got there told us it was suspended & the parking garage was blocks away. We chose the one next to the hotel that looked like you will be knifed in the parking lot. Smell of urine coming out the air conditioner vent. Staff warched me struggle as I tried to get through the door with my toddler in a stroller. Very overpriced for the lack of quality.I can say more, but I won't.
Loved this place - great location, nicest staff ever

Stopped for one night, the room was great, clean, bed very comfortable, I'm especially sensitive to air freshener which is more often than not horribly overwhelming - but here the room just smelled lightly pleasant. Maybe the laminated wood floors? It was a good value in a good location, I would definitely stay again. Staff were all so nice - in fact kind of late in the restaurant I just asked if they had shrimp and grits on the dinner menu, which they didn't, but they insisted on making it for me anyway. Shower was initially confusing but there's a helpful sign, it actually had plenty of hot water when I figured it out.

We stayed at Hotel Indigo while in BR for an LSU event because it was a preferred hotel for the event with a "special rate". Our room was tiny, not like the hotel photos. The AC unit was so loud, made a loud clicking noise every time it cycled on. There was no safe or small fridge in the room for our valuables and we were awakened at 4:15 am on a Thursday night when the dumpster across the street was being emptied, which took 10 minutes to do. We will not be staying at this hotel again.
