A+ Motel & RV Park in Sulphur
Honored with Campground/RV Park of the Year

LAKE CHARLES, La. (February 7, 2013)-The A+ Motel & RV Park was recently awarded the Campground/RV Park of the Year at the Lt. Governor's Tourism Summit held in Lake Charles, Jan. 22-24 at L'Auberge Casino Resort.

A+ Motel & RV Park was awarded the honor for providing a wonderful experience for their visitors and ability to fully embrace and promote the local culture and attractions, such as the Creole Nature Trail All-American Road. Their customer service and attention to detail were major factors in the property being designated this title. The front desk staff offers advice on everything from the top fishing spots to the best local cuisine and provides maps and brochures of the area.

"Louey awards are presented to tourism professionals who go to great lengths to enhance the state's $10.1 billion tourism industry that employs one out of every eleven Louisiana citizens," said Darienne Mobley, Co-Executive Director, Louisiana Travel Promotion Association. "These are also the same industry members who have tourism's best interest in mind and are those we can depend on to advocate on the industry's behalf."

"Receiving this award is a tremendous and exciting honor for our family and staff," said Deanette Franks, Owner/Manager of A+ Motel & RV Park. "We take pride in providing excellent service and amenities and view our guests as family. We are firm believers that visitors should be educated and encouraged to experience what Southwest Louisiana has to offer and make a memory."
