Had a mariner, MATE, call and stay with me, this week, while going through physical, training classes and HUET at ECO as he was recently hired on with them. He suggested I remind people about A Chateau on the Bayou B&B in Raceland, LA as a place to stay. He was not pleased with free accommodations and would not go back to that. He had his truck to go back and forth, everyday, so it worked out great for him.
The nicer hotels, down the bayou, are over $250 with taxes. So, keep in mind that I do still offer a discounted rate for mariners that are staying a 2 night minimum. My B&B has come a long way since mariners were staying, here, during 2010-2014. I have international travel from all over the world and my prices are more, than that time. I have a new pavilion in the backyard where people gather or just relax.
Although, my current rates are $185 plus taxes, I will offer mariners, a discounted rate of $120. Please call me at (985) 537-6773 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or PM me on gcaptain if you are planning on coming down to start a new job and are interested in staying in a clean, comfortable, and relaxing setting right on the bayou.
My understanding is that the ECO school is back to its regular schedule. Monday, physical, Tuesday, Safe Gulf, Wed., VPDSD and Orientation, Thurs. and Friday, Rigging and Huet on Monday!!
I am located 30 minutes from the New Orleans airport and then it is about 40 minutes to the ECO school.
