Also, even though we do not have an elevator, our staff is available 24 hours a day to assist with luggage for those staying on the 2nd floor. Thank you for your... More

Clean hotel away from the craziness of some of the touristy areas of the city. Staff was great and very helpful. The only negative thing I experienced was the mediocre cleaning job by housekeeping. Would stay here again in the future. Oh and I almost forgot to mention the free beer and snack during the week. 👍🏾👍🏾

Found hotel last minute for new orleans for sister's wedding. Nice property with friendly staff and good breakfast. 10 minutes away from french quarters and 20 minutes away from airport. Had yogurt, eggs, bacon, grits, and sausage.

We really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The front desk were very nice and helpful. The breakfast was really good. You go to other hotels and pay a lot more money and they don't serve you breakfast. Our room was very quiet and the bed were comfortable. My husband and I both agree that we will be staying at this... More

My second stay here and it is my first choice when I'm in Nola. Not much to look at from the highway, but the inside is spotless, rooms are comfortable & modern and service is super friendly. Value for the money is off the charts. Save yourself $100-$150 a night and stay at the Best Western Bayou Inn vs. staying... More

This hotel was in a great place on the route from Texas to Florida in New Orleans. Only thing better would be a cajun restaurant nearby. The TESLSA charger was in good shape and the spaces were available.

Near the BAYOUS & and all sorts of Cajun French atmosphere. The staff were anxious to he my wife and myself to check in and be comfortable. New Orleans is 20 minutes away but the cost of the room made the drive a GRIN. There are plenty of great food service places 5 or less minutes away. The room was... More

A lovely, comfortable hotel a little outside of New Orleans. We stayed here for a family weekend with both of our children and its worth the saving. The staff are very nice, the breakfast is awesome with plenty of choice. The beds are super comfy... the rooms are a nice size and clean. Bathrooms could do with a update, but... More

Check in was a breeze. All hotel staff encountered were extremely helpful and courteous. This newly remodeled property feels like home. Large free parking lot allows easy access to surrounding shopping centers and other venues. Will gladly stay here again.

This is a nice hotel for the money and not too far from the French Quarter (only 11 miles). The staff are friendly and the rooms are clean. They offered us a complimentary glass of wine when we arrived which was nice after a long drive.
