Extremely nice staff, room was clean, convenient location. Hotel was renovated nicely. They offered breakfast. It sits right on I-10, great stay, we will definitely be back. Oh and we went to Popeye's chicken...taste better that the Popeye's at home actually!

We booked due to the price and fact all lodgings raised to 2X and more their prices during NO for graduation weekend. It is a good 20 minutes by car from the French Quarter and about double that time to the airport if it isn't rush hour. This property has come under Choice Hotels management but is privately owned.

I booked this room because of the positive reviews I read on tripadvisor. Boy was I fooled! For one the location appears to be an older part of New Orleans or a part that was never restored after Hurricane Katrina. Very desolate with run down buildings and tumble weed. I felt I was in a low budget Western film. Upon... More

My cousin wanted to celebrate her 50th birthday in New Orleans, Louisiana. We originally planned our trip for the first weekend of March 2015, but she got snowed in and her flight was cancelled. I was the one responsible for booking the hotel. I took a chance and booked with an unfamiliar site – Amoma.com (more on this further down... More

They have large options for breakfast, they have microwave, coffee maker, iron board, & refrigerator all in the room. I didn't get the best view in the world from the one small rectangular window. The elevator will freeze sometimes, which made me nervous every time I use it. The staffs I've encountered were pretty half &a half. One would not... More

We stayed here for two nights last week. We stayed here with another couple while visiting New Orleans. Check in was smooth, room was clean and breakfast was okay however very crowded due to a tour bus which was no fault of the hotels. It is easy to get to and about a 15 minute drive to downtown if you... More

Just returned from 3 night stay. Best thing about this property is it's location. Easy 15 minute drive to French Quarter area , just off I-10. However, property itself leaves much to be desired. Appears to have been recently converted from Avalon Hotel to Clarion. Entire place is musty smelling. Rooms are OK sized, but carpets are sticky. Window, the... More
