Verified Reviews of TRU by Hilton Lafayette River Ranch

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Filthy Room"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Floors not swept; dirt everywhere. Found crumbs, papers and toys in bed so sheets were obviously not changed. Pubic hairs in the shower. No soap. (We chose not to shower at all). TV kept cutting out. Machine blowing air in the room so apparently there was a leak somewhere and this machine was there to dry something. It was discusting. The only reason we stayed is because it was late and we had just visited my son who was recently in a car accident. We were exhausted. We left as soon as we got up the next day. I took photos; it was so gross. I let staff know at check out. They were very nice.

"Overpriced and pool was closed in June."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Booked Father’s Day weekend to relax by pool in comfort of Hilton affiliated hotel. Pool was closed the entire time due to lack of maintenance/repairs. Should have been informed of pool being closed prior to booking.

"It was horrible. The first room had dried up snot and in the made up bed."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
We drove many miles to rest and cleanliness is a serious issue here. From the toilets to the beds. After we changed rooms, an empty clothes hanger was hanging on the wall and the toilet was obviously unclean. The dried up snot, clumps of buggers were obviously left in the bed during the pandemic. Not only was this gross, house keeping neglected to change the sheets between customers during the pandemic also and sealed room as though they had cleaned it properly. I am very dissatisfied and can not return or recommend this hotel.

"Noisy"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The insulation in the ceiling is terrible. I could hear every footstep above me. It sounded like a remodel project was going on at 10pm. I could not sleep. I am sure it was just the guest closing drawers and doors but it went on for a long time and I could hear it old. It is a very noisy hotel.

"Terrible hotel on many levels! Do not waste your money here!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I stayed here for (3) nights on a business trip and I could not count the days down fast enough to checkout. Walls are paper thin. I was located on the first floor and could hear every movement of walking and talking from the room above. The room is very small and very reminiscent of a dorm room in size and decor. My biggest complaint is the pull up/down “see Thru” shade window treatment. You have no privacy and the daytime light and night time spot light and nearby building light shines directly in the room. You will never have a “blackout”/dark room. On two different nights, I saw a centipede crawling on the floor. That was pretty nasty looking! The rooms have no blankets or dressers and no storage space. Bathroom was a decent size and shower was good. The Breakfast is lacking, but the fruits were good. Definitely not what I expected from a Hilton property. I booked this property primarily because it was a Hilton property and the location. Very disappointed and totally not what I expected. I will not be booking a Tru by Hilton property again.

"Waited four hours to check in!"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Few days before my reservation I called to see if early check in was available was told yes to call the day of check in. The morning of I called at 8am to see about early check in was told no would have to wait for 3pm check in. Called at 2:30pm to confirm room was ready and was told no. My son had a game at 4pm and had to be at the field an hour before so I skipped 3pm check in. Arrived to hotel at 5:20pm to be told there was four other people waiting on rooms that I would have to wait until it was cleaned. I was not able to get a room until 7pm. I asked to speak to a manager and was told no one was available for the night. The next morning I almost missed breakfast since I was not told the hours upon check in. At 8:30am eggs had ran out, fruit loops had ran out, waffle batter had ran out, fresh fruit had ran out. Had to wait about 10 min for these items to be restocked only for breakfast to end at 9am sharp! I was able to speak to the manager the first morning about my experience in checking in late four hours and not being able to be accommodate to a handicap accessible room due to my husband having emergency surgery before the trip, a trip that had been booked a month in advance to only get that "the previous day they were fully booked and had late check outs sorry". Day two I didn't hesitate to rush for breakfast and upon leaving the hotel at 10:15am I noticed that breakfast hours had been extended without notice. Each morning breakfast had different hours so it was a hit or miss.
