The BEST WESTERN of Winnfield is known for genuine southern hospitality and a great location surrounded by a national forest.

Winnfield hotels are nestled in a region rich in culture and history. Many of our guests are in town to get away from it all and enjoy local attractions like the Political Museum. Our location close to the highway makes it easy for guests to get around town and check out all of the fine dining, shopping and sightseeing spots. Our exterior corridors are spacious and welcoming.

We’re a pet-friendly hotel, so feel free to bring the entire family while staying at our Winnfield hotel. The Forest Festival is a big annual attraction, and a great destination for a family trip. As a Best Western branded hotel, you can count on us to deliver the standard high service, spacious rooms and welcoming atmosphere. Whether you’re here to explore the national forest or take in a local event, like Uncle Earl’s Hot Dog Trials, staying at a clean, comfortable hotel is important.

At our Winnfield hotel, we pride ourselves on providing each guest with world-class service. An on-site restaurant makes dining a breeze, and the Embers Restaurant of Louisiana attracts locals as well as out of town guests. Hunters come from around the region for the wildlife, and fishing is popular in the area. If you’re here to enjoy the great outdoors, you’ll be with like-minded guests.

Winnfield is home to three former governors, and the political history of the area is rich. However, business travelers also enjoy staying at our Winnfield hotel and can even squeeze in a little sightseeing between work. The papermills often bring workers to the area, and Jeld/Wen, saw mills and Brookshires grocery store are more companies that require out of town workers. Whether you’re here for leisure or to take care of business, depend on us to make you feel right at home.

Dogs are graded by judges on how quickly they can contain and control the boar. It's also known as "baying."

Dogs in the event are outfitted with a kevlar vest, extra wide collars, and chest armor to prevent puncture wounds from the tusks of the boar. Dogs often chase and bark at the boar until it's corner and stops – this would be considered a successful run for the dog.
