I reserved a non smoking and they put me in a smoking. They changed it promptly. New wasn't 100% clean had dirty towels hanging on shower curtain but I was too tired to move. They had window missing on the first floor which made me concerned about my safety. It's just an all around concern. You get what you pay for.

It said that there was an indoor and outdoor pool and we were making a trip to NO from Monroe LA for an appointment @ University Medical Center. My granddaughter drove 5 hours with a bad back because of my broke leg. When we got there and checked in I asked where the pools were? I was told that the OLD owners put that on the site, THEY had just bought it. It also said on website free Continental Breakfast which was also not true. Our first night there ( we were very disappointed when we walked in and all we could smell was Marijuana smell in the hall, but we were to exhausted to leave. Got in the room and closed the door and it says on the back of the door... FOR YOUR SAFETY LOCK THE DEAD BOLT AND THE SECURITY LATCH! well there was a latch but the other part on the door was ripped off the door. Then all night the room next to ours had a party with at least 10 people in it hitting walls yelling and screaming so about 1am I called the manager, he said he would call the room, he ended up coming down and had to knock 3 times to get their attention. He made everyone leave ( I could here everything in my room) it stayed quiet about an hour then got louder again. NO sleep that night. After being at hospital for 6 hours we were both so tired, just wanted to sleep. , Cigars broke all over hall. I booked room on Orbitz and paid with my cc, I was double billed and was told it would be back on my cc in 1-2 days and still nothing.

Hard floors are nice and clean I prefer That over carpet. Kinda scared area but the staff are friendly. It seems to have locals That rent and live in the rooms.

Very close to all the main sites: Jackson Square, Café Du Monde, Canal Street, Casino, Bourbon Street, etc. Stay here and save money. Then use Uber to go to Jackson Square. Walk to all the sites from there. Uber cost about $11.00. Motel has a Subway Sandwich next to it and across the street McDonalds and a Walmart two blocks over to get anything you want and also save more money. HAVE FUN!!!!

clean and convenient and good location and fair price

Great price!! Located close to all the places to see!!! Will be staying there again soon.

Nice cheap hotel just about 4 miles away from French quarter

Very nice location close to everything, the rooms can be more clean they don't have a dresser in the rooms and the halls smell like mildew

It was maybe most cleanest motel 6 we’ve experienced so far. Room was very spacious and have two queen size beds. Has backyard right close to freeway and my dogs can take care of business. I see unsatisfied that water pressure and not hot shower and just lukewarm and one light cover in room was covered by some kind of blood or juice splash.

Good room and very spacious. Has back yard to let my dogs walk and take care of business. Too bad so many dog owners don’t pick up after them. Nice clean room. We stayed motel 6 a lot since we take our two dogs and this motel 6 is very clean compare with other motel 6. Good location close to down town so we took Uber to go out dinner rather than worry about parking at night. It’s only 12-15min away.

Outside is gargoyle inside is GORGEOUS beautiful room the floor was nice and new spacious room Bed was awesome Bathroom was nice also marble wall Guy in front desk was nice and honest when I asked him if it was safe to walk to store, Overall I liked the room Also hotel felt safe because you CANNOT walk in WITHOUT room key into the facility PERIOD!!!

It was convenient to what I needed, but very basic. Great value perhaps but no amenities-a step above camping perhaps? And at night, the lobby was locked so business was transacted thru a window? No coffee maker, but a microwave which was on the floor. Rooms were cleaned in timely manner. The 2 young men at front desk were very nice. Orange walls, no carpeting, no room service--just your basic, very basic accommodation. i would only suggest to someone who needed to save $$$ or only needed a basic 'bed & shower' ...

The attendant was on his cell phone the entire time I was checking in. I was not given any instructions on where our room was, just given keys. The outside had no room numbers to help indicate where to park. Room doors are interior, accessed by a common outside door. The stair banacer was held together with caution tape and chunks of cement were missing from the steps and walls. Our door popped open without the use of a key card to enter. The bathroom had mold in the joints and black dirt was caked around bases of the walls. We didn’t attempt to shower but noticed the towels were like sandpaper when we washed our hands and face. The bed was comfortable and hotel was quiet. It’s located by a mcDonalds and Waffle House, as well as family dollar.

Motel is under construction, rooms smelled of cigarette & marijuana smoke, no elevators.

Bathroom was dirty. Phone didnt work, found some roaches. Room smelled like weed. Customer service is horrible. Had to purchase some clorox disinfectant and spray the sink and bathtub. It just horrible

A lizard in the shower they did nothing about. Got an attitude and hung up when we called the service desk. Were rude. No breakfast even though the sign in the cafeteria area posted clearly said breakfast and hours for said breakfast. Would never ever ever stay there again.

My girl friend believed there was terrible but It was ok in my point is view
