The riverboat casinos in Bossier City are a ten-minute drive away. The Eighth Air Force Museum at Barksdale Air Force Base is 15 minutes northeast, and Shreveport Regional Airport is seven miles west. our guests "love the rooms and decor" at the Sleep Inn, where a relaxing indoor pool lets them swim year-round.
