This was the best stay I have ever had in any hotel. The employees and atmosphere are top notch. We couldn't have asked for better service, especially since we require handicap services. The employees were quick to help with our every need, and the hotel offers great services with such things as a wine tasting, an amazing breakfast variety, and... More

I had stayed here in the past and wasn't too happy about the lack of elevator & the small breakfast space. But I saw that they had done some renovations so I wanted to try it out again. I always travel with a ton of luggage for work, and was glad that the front desk clerk asked me this time... More

My daughter and I are on the last week of our 3 week road trip with two little ones. You can imagine we are a little more than tired. We got in late, Jerome was more than helpful. Making sure we had a 1st level room. He was very professional, nice and accommodating. Our room was clean and cozy. Beds... More

I always get excited and a bit nervous when we get guests who are on a long road trip, we've had several guests this year alone on 2 plus week trips and generally stay at several Best Westerns down the road and probably some other branded hotels as well. My mix of feelings is because as you said the last... More

Spent one night here and have absolutely no complaints. The hotel staff was great, our room was clean, breakfast was wonderful and the cheese and wine upon arrival were a pleasant surprise. I would highly recommend and definitely stay here again!

Thanks for sharing your wonderful experience with our future guests Dawn! Isn't Wine Down Wednesday the perfect Lagniappe? We thought so over 2 years ago and it's been a hit ever since. Next time don't miss Margarita Monday:) Thanks again and we hope to see you soon, Christopher Anderson General Manager More

Incredibly hectic trip where I had ONE WEEK to move to my new state of Lousiana, to learn all things New Orleans, to find a home, to furnish the home, to move into the home, and to start training at the new job! Richard and the staff at the Best Western Bayou Inn made this event a very comfortable event.... More

This was an excellent motel and in a very safe area, considering it being located just south of the New Orleans city. The employees were very nice and very helpful with all our needs. Would recommend this motel to anyone staying in this area. The facilities are well maintained and clean inside and outside.

Thanks for your great review Mr. James! As you mentioned we are a wonderful choice for business travelers as well especially given our Weekday Evening Lagniappe...who doesn't need a Margarita on Monday or two beers on Tuesday to relax and unwind? Your review is most appreciated and we hope to see you back soon! Christopher More

Breakfast was excellent. Room was large and beds comfortable. Pool is very small. Parking is free, which was a big selling point for us. Not too far from N. O. and fairly simple to find. Close to Destrahan Plantation and River Road.

When my dad and I pulled into the parking lot we weren't really sure about it because there was a cop car out front, but as soon as we stepped inside we were instantly greeted and had excellent customer service our entire stay there.

Well I'm glad you weren't deterred by our Jefferson Parish Police Officers!

The hotel is so affordable..... It's like staying at a luxury hotel but the price is just cheaper. They have everything from a coffee maker, microwave, kitchen, free breakfast, and comfortable beds.
