I stayed an extra day because family funeral. They would not give me the same rate. It went up to 89.00 instead of the 61.00 I initially had. Not good, service staff was not great, but okay.

Very good value

Great room for the price. Very clean and large with a separate sitting area and nice beverage/coffee/microwave/fridge bar. Easy to get to but not located in the best of areas.

Very Nice Option when visiting NOLA

This was definitely a very good experience. Located near a shopping center and restaurants is a perfect choice for a budget (no cheap) stay in NOLA. Staff was great and breakfast is better than average.

Great location

Right by lake. Lobby very nice, clerk somewhat dry sense of humor but very helpful Rooms are really big, could sleep seven. However, these rooms needed a face lift.

Needs Major updates

This hotel is located across from the lake, which is beautiful, very convenient to the local casinos and the downtown area. Other than great location, this hotel is in desperate need of a total renovation. Rooms are old and worn down. The room had multiple large water stains on ceiling, the ac unit was loud and seemed as if it was about to go out. Bathroom could barely fit one person. There was years of dust and debris around window and ac unit. If it wasn't for the coupon deal this hotel would not be worth the stay. Cheap wine and tap beer can't make up for a hotel that's in need of a major overhaul. The two good things I could say is that the bed was clean and bug free and the towels smelled fresh. Even still I would not stay here again.
