Hi!

I'm hoping to spend my spring break in Lake Charles, getting the last part of Mardi Gras and hanging out with some friends..

I'm wondering if anybody have any suggestions for cheap lodging in or right around Lake Charles? I really don't have high demands, it needs to be a room with a bed pretty much. Either cheap nightly rates or not to bad weekly rates would be fantastic.
I've asked my friends to check it out for me, but figured it wouldn't hurt to ask here too

You could stay at a hotel in Sulphur, just west of Lake Charles. If you are looking for an inexpensive hotel in the Lake Charles city limits, they will either be on bad parts of town or they will be in terrible shape. You could also stay in Iowa to the east of the city, it's about a 15 minute drive.

I don't mind one of the surrounding areas at all. I'll have my car, so I'll be able to get around without issues
Any particular you can recommend for the areas or should I just search around and see?

There is not one in particular that I'd reccommend. B/c I don't really know much about them, however, if you want to avoid having to cross a bridge, I'd stay in Iowa, or if you do stay in lake charles, I forgot to mention a holiday inn that's on lake street, it's fairly new. Or if you want to stay near lauberge, you could stay at the wingate hotel that was just built.

There is a Days Inn near the bridge and Steamboat Bill's. I spent a night or two there in '09 and was very pleasantly surprised. The rooms were nice and recently renovated. I've also stayed at the Super 8 in Sulphur. You'll have to drive a few minutes to get to Lake Charles, but it's right next to the interstate, Waffle House, Jack in the Box, Cracker Barrel, etc, and WalMart and CVS are down the street.... very convenient.

The casino hotels are pricey in my opinion, but when I'm out there all I use to the room for is sleeping. If you're going to want to hang out in the room the casino hotels might be a better bet.

Thanks for the suggestions I'm aiming for the same as you, that I need a hotel/motel to sleep. The rest of the time the plan is to be out and about with my friends
A few minutes drive for a cheaper place to lay my head down isn't something I mind, so I'll take a look Thanks again!
