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

Hotel was acceptable. Rooms were clean and nice, but had musty odor until I cranked up the a/c and then it lessened. Could not get on internet in my room...in lobby only and who sits in lobby when you have private room? So couldn't really use it while at hotel. Asked for help with the IT guy and he sounded... More

If you don't have a car and not inclined to take the public transport , then this hotel may not be your choice. The airport shuttle does not serve this hotel, therefore the next best option is taxi and the fare is USD 50. Getting to downtown, Canal Street, one way by taxi is USD 30. However, taking the bus...

We stayed here for 2 nights before a cruise with our 4 year old grandaughter. Let me tell you, this motel was spotless and the beds very comfortable! We stayed on the 2nd floor, so did have stairs, but it was an inside stairway, and easy to manage. The hot breakfast was so good to be able to start your... More
