Only if you have to.....

We arrived Friday night. Neighborhood sketchy. The parking lot provided parking close to our room, but we opted to park out front for safety reasons. Hallways dirty. People in hallways a little scary. Thank goodness the rooms did not have carpet. The room could have been cleaner. I was not grossed out, but you could tell they just hit the traffic areas and ignored hard to reach areas, such as behind doors, corners and under the bed. The room did have a refrigerator that was not working. We kicked it though and it started working!! We moved it out in front of the mirror and it was pretty gross under there. Staff was very nice.

Scary neighborhood

We stayed here for lack of a better place with availability. It is fairly close to everything we wanted to do in New Orleans, but the neighborhood was a bit scary. Plus, it took forever to get a cab to come to the hotel to get us and we had to walk 5 miles back to the hotel because we couldn't get a cab to take us back to the hotel ... other than that, the room was clean and the staff was friendly. :)

Just a place to crash

This is okay if you're just looking for a place to crash. If you plan on spending any time at a hotel, I wouldn't recommend this place. The handle on the bathroom door was broke and wouldn't close. I also would have liked to have a coffee maker in my room. The carpets in the hallway were dirty and stained. This was just a place for me and my family to sleep and shower at which is all we needed.

Room was ok, appearance is SCARY

If you arrive in the evening, you have to check in from outside through a glass window ( which may of been bullet proof). A gate does surround the exterior of the hotel but was never closed. A scary skeleton of a building is on site, broken windows, completely gutted building with graffitti. It felt like a frat party with so many people roaming the hall ways. The room also had a stale odor to it. Wish I spent the extra money and stayed elsewhere, it would be worth the peace of mind.

Couldn't wait to leave

My experience with this hotel was not a positive one. It has an overwhelming carpet cleaner smell and no way to let fresh air into the room to alleviate it. I called the front desk to find out the password for the internet and when I didn't understand what the word was and repeated it back incorrectly, the clerk who had answered the phone respelled it letter by letter yelling it at me and then hung up on me. At 10:58am on the day we checked out, the maid came to the door and repeated several times that check out time was 11am and were we leaving now, it was time to go, are we staying another day, even though I had my suitcase in my hand and my purse over my shoulder and I wasn't even late to leave yet. My 16 year old son reported the same maid had glared at him several times when we had walked down the hall. Not a welcoming environment, though you do get a bar of soap in the bathroom, no extras. I would not recommend this location unless none of the above will bother you.

Overall Good Value

I came in town to work and needed a place to sleep and shower and it was just that. They gave fresh towels, and linens, and made my bed. It's 4 miles from downtown so you are never on traffic long. I was comfortable and would stay again.
