Not a good experience.

The motel is near the water with commercial fishing boats around in an industrial area. The room was fairly clean and nice except for the strong smell. It was a strong odor that seemed to be masking (poorly) the heavy smoking smell of the building. (I was in a "non-smoking" room) I'm not super sensitive, but this was overwhelming and kept me awake. The smell permeated my clothes and travel items to the point of still smelling upon return home. The neighbors and thin walls were a bad combination as they were exceptionally loud and arguing until 2 a.m.. People were coming and going from the room all night as well. The hotel staff were fairly friendly and helpful but they did not offer any assistance with the noise (banging doors, pounding on doors, yelling/arguing). The folks next door were pretty sketchy and I was glad I was not with a family. I would not recommend this particular motel.

Good location

Good location. Too pricey for an ordinary hotel. Have seen better at a cheaper price. Bathroom wasn't as clean. Pool was not clean. Had to checkout iron and ironing board from front desk. It just wasn't what I suspected for the price I paid. Staff was pretty nice.

The worst motel/hotel I have ever stayed at

First we'll start with the fact that the room we booked is not the room we got. We booked a King bed, non smoking. Our room was smoking w/2 double beds. I complained, motel said they were sorry but the online booking via websites is more a preference of what you would like AND it does not mean you will get that room. I have booked online before & this has never happened. She said they were overbooked and was sorry. Next our key to get in room only worked the first time we got in and never worked again. They tried giving me new keys 2 times, tried changing batteires, The mechanism where the door key goes in just didnt work. So everytime we needed to leave and get in room again the front desk had to get a physical key to open it for us. Very aggravating. Our room was not clean, there was a cigarette butt on floor and dark hairs all over the bathroom door and walls and floor, a half dranken dr pepper bottle. Also it rained really heavily & water was leaking in the doorway of our room from outside. Disgusting place. Will never stay there again and dont recommend anyone stay their just for conveince like we did. We were trying to be as close to neworleans as possible for a concert. I will gladly stay 20 mins away than stay there again!

Love this place!

Our weekend stay at this hotel was a pleasure. The hotel is literally located 7 miles from downtown New Orleans. The room was spacious and clean. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The cafe staff remembered how my husband wanted his breakfast and he got it that way every time. I would recommend this property to anyone looking to spend time in New Orleans.

In the middle of nowhere

We had a large, comfortable room. But the motel was all by its self on a business highway. There was a cafe attached, but limited menu.

Very Pleased!

We recently stayed here with our travel baseball team as a last minute resort when we realized that the first hotel we booked was "unsafe". We stopped off here and were able to get 8 rooms at the last minute. The staff was beyond friendly and accomodating. Yes, the motel is a little dated, but everything was clean and the service was amazing. They reopened their entire restaurant for us after hours when we came in from a long day at the ballpark. Highly recommend and we will definitely be back!
