Great Vacation before goin back to work

Had an awsome time while I was in New Orleans! Picked a great hotel that was at a VERY good rate!! (Great pet deposit price, compared to others.) The staff was very welcoming and helpful (with the small set back that we had with the door), there is nothing to complain about this hotel at all. This is on an old military post, so there are other military buildings and military personnel living in the area. That isn't a big deal since its secure and quite, for those that would like to be away from all the "action" and wants a quite place to relax, but still close enough to go back and forth if one desires. (The only thing on going back and forth in a vehicle would be the parking... and parking isn't cheap near the main hot spots!!)

Girls getaway!

The staff here was super friendly and helpful. The rooms a a great size and the kitchenette was a plus! We loved the location not too far from downtown in a quiet area we felt safe and comfortable. Great room for the price. I will be recommending this hotel to everyone I know!

Under construction!

We were booked to stay for one night before our cruise left. When we arrived the entire first floor was under renovation. The hotel has no elevator, which meant we were going to have to drag 9 suitcases up and down stairs!! After a lengthy discussion with This site and the hotel manager we received a refund and moved on to a different hotel. Good luck

Good Value Overall

The hotel was somewhat remote from the attractions in New Orleans, and the route to and from the attractions was tricky. Staff was very friendly and professional. Cost was very reasonable, and the room was clean...although the ceramic tile flooring surfaces were slippery as though they needed to be scrubbed more thoroughly.

Location not the best, but pricing reasonable

The hotel is located in a rather remote part of New Orleans, and I believe within a former military compound. I got very lost using a GPS to get there and the surrounding area was deserted. The hotel is an older building, and there was NO elevator, so keep that in mind if you have a lot of luggages. The room was spacious, and for mine there was a microwave and stove. The room was clean but definitely looked aged. Overall good value for what you got.

There is almost nothing in the immediate surrounding of the hotel. I suggest renting a car so you can drive to the French Quarters or surrounding neighborhood for food.

New to us

We booked this motel because its price was great. It is close to the Algiers/Canal ferry, though it is too far to walk. The facility is well kept, and the staff friendly and ready to please. We will stay here again.

The Dry Dock restaurant is at the foot of the ferry landing in Algiers. The French Quarter is just across the river, and enjoy the view of the Quarter and Central Business District on the ride.

Nice place with good value

Staff was extremely nice and helpful and the room was clean. The only negative is that you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere. Cab ride across the river into the more popular part of the city ranges from $18-21, but given how much more expensive the hotels are in that area, the cab fare is worth it.
