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.

If you expect quality service for your money, then you can't go wrong with this location. The staff was friendly, the hotel rooms are clean, and the beds are very comfortable. Excellent choice if you need a good night's sleep.

Travelling without a reservation to New Orleans, we found that rooms in the city ranged from $250-$400 a night. I booked this room on the southwest side of New Orleans online, and from the price, figured it would be "crunchy". My husband and I were very pleasantly surprised by the interior of this hotel- fun, bright locally painted signs about... More

Good location as it was easy to get to downtown New Orleans. Much better price and a quieter place to relax after leaving the city. There's a full breakfast, with plenty of food, and they have a happy hour in the evenings with margaritas, beer, wine, snacks. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Kudos to Best Western and the... More

2 1/2 miles from NOLA Raceway makes this location an easy choice for events there. 12 miles to downtown New Orleans means not having to negotiate city traffic getting to track. Staff is excellent. Very positive and helpful. The lobby and breakfast area are cramped but clean and well maintained. Fitness room is clean but small and under equipped. Rooms... More

Hotel was conveniently located with adequate parking available. Check in and checkout was effortless. Due to Spring break the hotel was full and a little noisy but the services provided were good. Breakfast was hot and good quality. The entire family had an enjoyable stay.

The hotel is okay. The breakfast is good and the staff is friendly. But it was a $50 cab ride to the hotel. We ended up renting a car, which was A LOT cheaper than taking a cab into New Orleans everyday. The first 15 min we were there we watched a male get arrested at the gas station next... More

Hi Tammy, thank you for you feedback. While it's true we are not located downtown, we feel for those guests seeking close proximity to the French Quarter but want to avoid the hotel parking fees and noise, we are a quality option. We're certainly glad you found our staff to be friendly and breakfast to be delicious. As always, your... More
