I stayed here while visiting Tulane because it was cheap. I shouldn't have. It is a ways in to town (and I got lost literally every day). It is in the middle of nowhere, there are no (good) restaurants to pop over to if you get hungry. There is a gas station right next to it where people enjoy playing... More

If you have a car I would recommend this hotel. It was close to everything we needed to do and see, and yet only 20 minutes from the french quarter. The hot breakfast, special extras, comfortable beds, great service added up to a great experience.

Courtney from the front desk was very wonderful and helpful. She helped with my reservation issues and also many other things. Very polite and very respectful. The room was very nice as well. Very good location and safe area.

Stayed here before boarding a cruise to the Caribbean out of New Orleans, They allowed us to park out vehicle in the parking lot while on the cruise and we took a cab to the port and back. Saved us money and stress of getting there.

After a horrible stay at a pricier hotel before we arrived in the New Orleans area, this place was a godsend. The room was larger than I expected, the refrigerator kept our drinks very cold, and everything was clean and fresh smelling. Breakfast was always very crowded, but awesome. Thank you for the great stay!

I read few of the reviews prior booking, few of them were true but not to worry. Staff is very friendly and cooperative, rooms are okay, room 210 air conditioner is kind of noisy but works fine, no elevator available so if you have any difficulty lifting your baggage ask for help, breakfast is really good the breakfast lady will...

24 hour security and guard was so nice. Really appreciated his customer service. Inside room, there's a bar sink and stove hood without the stove (obviously at one time it was a little cooking area and they removed the stove but not the hood-now it serves as a good spot to clean your fish). But room does have microwave and... More

The room was clean but there was a room for improvement. With traffic/Signal lights etc it's about a 25 minute drive to down town New Orleans. Next to the hotel is a service station/food mart. The free breakfast at the hotel was great, Grits, sausage, bacon & eggs...yum
