Cool and comfortable rooms for all of us, we had four rooms for two families with adult children. Entire hotel is smoke free which was good and free nibbles... More

We were surprised to see this nice looking motel in Westwego. The rooms were large and clean. easy up to a elevated road into New Orleans (2 red lights and in N.O.) The best was a free wine tasting and beer tasting from 5PM to &PM. The free breakfast made it a great stop.

Pulling up into the drive of the hotel, I was a bit hesitant. It's undergoing some renovations and I feared this would affect my stay. I was HAPPILY surprised at the food and customer service. It's only 20 minutes from downtown, right by the expressway, and is in an area where you can do local shopping (pharmacy, groceries, Wal-Mart, food,... More

The great value more than compensated for the kind-of remote location (as compared to tourist spots). Plenty of well-lit, free, close parking. Free, hot breakfast had wide selection. Evening snack was a bonus. Only problem was the wireless internet did not work in the room (the technical support was unable to fix the problem) BUT did work fine in the... More

This hotel is an excellent choice when visiting the New Orleans area IF you have a car. This place is just across the newly widened Huey P. Long Bridge from the Elmwood area of suburban New Orleans. The rooms are quite pleasant and adequate for those not in search of deluxe accommodations, and the staff is very, very pleasant and... More

My husband and I stayed at the Bayou Inn from October 22 to October 28. We were in town on a mixed business/pleasure trip and chose the Bayou Inn for its slightly-out-of-town-but-convenient location. The pricing was much better than hotels closer in and the 15 minute drive into town was easy. This hotel was undergoing major exterior renovations to the... More

We narrowed our search down using Trip Advisor feedback, so it's only appropriate I add to it! I was VERY surprised at how great our entire experience was. We were greeted with cheese & crackers upon arrival (happy hour!), and our room was BIG. We had a fridge & micro with a kitchen area. There was a full hot breakfast... More
