Good Hotel

It was a good hotel, the only problem it´s to find the hotel, because when you put on GPS he send you everywhere but the hotel.

Great find!

I went to New Orleans for a business convention. This little place is 10-15 minutes to the convention center by car and appears to be part of military base housing in a residential section. If you're looking for a hotel within walking distance of everything, it won't work. But the price was fabulous, the drive across the river was beautiful, and the historic area close by was quaint and lovely. The staff was incredibly polite and helpful with suggestions of nearby local restaurants. The room included a full kitchen and was immaculate. The ferry is minutes away as an alternative to driving across the river. I would definitely recommend a stay here for those on a budget who appreciate a quiet rest.

Location is not everything part 2

This motel is out of the way, but excellent. It took a while to find it (Louisiana does not seem to invest much in signs). After we went near it 3 times before we actually located it, we were in a negative mood. Everything turned around with the friendliness of the staff and the large, clean and very well equipped room. Once we mastered the easy way in and out it was as near perfect as we could want.

Great Place To Stay

Super clean, helpful staff. Very nice. I would stay there again. Wish it was a little closer to New Orleans, have to take ferry to downtown and the ferry doesn't run late. That's the only negative. The hotel was great though!

So happy I chose here!

Perfect hotel to stay at if you're looking for something relatively cheap and don't need anything luxury. Definitely need a car since it is on the Westbank away from most of the stuff tourists want to see. But super easy access to the highway. Rooms were clean, the staff were friendly, helpful and laid back, and everything you needed was there or they would find it for you. Impressive channel selection for this type of hotel as well. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to anybody. No complaints at all.

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
