Elegant B&B

4.6 on March 31, 2014

The Booker-Lewis House far exceeded my expectations. The rooms are lovely and clean and the dining options were great. I would definitely recommend staying here if you're in the Leesville area.

Innkeeper Response
We're so glad that we did exceed your expectations and really appreciate your business. Thanks for taking the time to let us know how we did!


Alternative to chain lodging

3.8 on March 27, 2014

Nice B&B in the middle of a small town. Charming lodging and great for most folks. Warning that it is noisy as it is close to the main street in town. I used earplug and white noise app. I am a foodie and loved the menu. I did not eat dinner there but claimed my included breakfast and I had a few suggestions. The menu is great but if brunch items cannot be purchased until 10 am, change the menu to reflect that truth. Also, my food was cold (cold potatoes), etc. Makes me concerned that the delivery does not meet the menu descriptions. This is likely the best alternative in Leesville so I encourage the cook to work at bit harder to make this a restaurant that lives up to it locations and style.


Romantic, charming

5 on March 22, 2014

Beautiful room (Callie's Room), romantic extras like champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, rose petals in room, loved the jacuzzi tub and robes. Feels like you've stepped into a while new world. Room was a little cold at night, but after calling front desk, they warmed it up. VERY NICE! LOVED IT! WILL STAY THERE AGAIN!

Innkeeper Response
We're so glad you so thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us! Thanks for letting us know, our staff loves to hear from our guests!


Second Stay

5 on March 22, 2014

This was my second stay at the Booker-Lewis and it was great! The atmosphere and ambiance was excellent. For the area, you cannot beat the price and service. Having a chef on site to prepare your meals is a definite plus. Beverly was more than accomodating as I got in very late (around 11:30 p.m.) due to a missed light in Dallas. I had to pick up my rental in Alexandria and drive into Leesville, and it was close as the rental place closed at 10 p.m. Fortunately, I got in around 9:40 and picked up my car. Beverly offered to drive to Alexandria and come get me, which is unheard of today. Kudos to Mr. Rose for establishing the Booker-Lewis! The only drawback is the amount of trains which come through the area, which can't be controlled. Everything else is way above standard.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for being our guest and for taking the time to share your comments with us about your experience. Our staff really appreciates knowing how they did. They were excited to read your comments.


Exceeds everything in the Area

4.2 on March 19, 2014

Everything about this place, is better than the surrounding area. It offers a lot, I only have one complaint. That is the single pane windows and the nearby railroad tracks. You will most likely be waken at least once. Everything else about this place rocked.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience at our property. The trains are indeed loud. We're happy the rest of your visit was positive!
