We accidentally drove into the surrounding neighborhood and it was scary. We weren't sure our car was safe in the parking lot of this hotel. The hotel itself was OK, not a great value. We would not stay there again.

Staff helpful and efficient, room large enough and clean. Fitness center had treadmill, elliptical, weights, towels, a water cooler and the air conditioning was set so it was very cool for working out. Breakfast was free and very good. The best feature was the sound proofing. We had very noisy neighbors that we could hear talking loudly when we were... More

Clean, pleasant, quiet hotel. We were so pleasantly surprised at our arrival (late at night, being thirsty and tired) - a beautiful jug of water with a column of ice and fresh lemons in the center was waiting in the lobby. Unique and so welcoming! Also, the very clean and pleasant room had a recycling can, on top of the... More

Hotel provides an adequate product. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. There is a daily buffet breakfast which seemed to serve the same thing every day. There is a pool located in the parking lot. Overall, this hotel is a bare bones provider located outside New Orleans main attractions. We stayed here because we had a number of... More

Hi Rob, thank you for your business, and for taking the time to write. We're glad to hear you found our accommodations clean the bed comfortable.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel last fall for our wedding anniversary. We had such a wonderful experience that we brought back our family and friends with us to the Jazz festival this spring. This will be our hotel of choice when visiting New Orleans in the future. Thank you BWBI, Westwego!

I recommend you have a car to stay here. No restaurants or stores in walking distance. French Quarter is far when you don't have a car. While waiting for our large group, My hubby and granddaughter did walk to the State Park across the street for a quick look. They saw alligators! I can't believe I missed that. Hotel and... More

This hotel is very close to NOLA Motor sports park. I stayed here just one week after the indy cars were here. The neighbor hood behind the hotel looks a little shady but the hotel itself was good. There is not really any place within walking distance to have a dinner at but down town NO is just approx. 12... More

Hi James, thanks for the review. We're really happy to hear you enjoyed our location being the closest hotel to the NOLA Motorsports Race Track, as well as our close proximity to downtown New Orleans.

The hotel is a very clean, jazzy style hotel With great customer service all over the hotel. From front desk to housekeeping. The breakfast was not your average but with the full works and awesome variety. Ms. Shaquilla at front desj was also exceptional.

This little hotel is perfect for our visits to family in the area. The location is convenient to both bridges. The service has been consistently the very best. Everyone who works there is always very nice and helpful.The rooms are always clean. It's quiet and secure. And the breakfast buffet is really good.
