Over all good stay. Minor flaws, ( Microwave did not work, laundry machines had problems, mold in bathroom) Area and property very safe.

Great place, but the communication of the staff was absolutely horrible.

I was a little skeptical about this place when I booked it but turned out to be a great experience. Confirmation of my booking and instructions for when I arrived were emailed and texted to me weeks before my arrival. There's no front desk or anything but it was simple to get to my room with the provided instructions. It's essentially a house they converted into multiple rooms. The house is definitely older but in good condition, no funny smells or weird noises. The room was very comfortable with a nice bed, clean sheets, flat screen TV, coffee maker, refrigerator, microwave, closet, and iron. Bathroom was also nice with bath/shower(tub had jets but didn't try them) and clean towels. The unit had its own temperature control as well. The only negative I could give is that the WiFi is pretty slow. Its less than a 10 minute drive downtown and a straight shot down Canal Street. There are plenty of places to eat around as well. Check-out instructions were texted to me the day before check-out and very simple. It was a very smooth and comfortable experience. Would definitely stay there again.

Very good location. It’s actually a converted house which makes it feel more like home than a motel. Plenty of room towels coffee etc. key codes for building and room are in email. Never talked or saw anyone and didn’t need to. I parked on canal street in front of house. Happy with stay !

This was an ok spot with some small issues. I had a lot of trouble contacting the front desk before and during the stay. The room also had no smoke detector and a tv antenna hanging out of the ceiling where the alarm should have been. The dresser also partially blocked the closet which was a challenge to get into the closet. All in all if I paid $60 a night I would have been satisfied but paying close to $100/night for a basement room was wayyy too much.

We loved our appartment. Super clean and confortable. Nice decor on the whole building as well. Only thing we got disappointed, there was not breakfast included or availble at the facility. But a very nice stay nevertheless.

This is a hostel or air bnb type hotel. There is no 24 hour staff or daily room cleaning. That's fine but you just need to be aware of it. The location is great. There are many bars and restaurants in that area and it is walking distance to the French Quarter. If you aren't a walker then the trolley car stops out in front of this hotel. Overall a great value and location. I will stay here again

Beautiful house right next to trollies. Great way to get to downtown.
