My husband and I stay at the Best Western Avalon on I-10 everytime we visit New Orleans. As it turns out has been three times in the last 12 mos. Each time it has been a very pleasant stay,the staff is always very professional yet friendly. Very prompt to address any concerns immediately. The location is perfect off I-10 away... More

We arrived on a Wednesday and staying in town until Sunday. That same night, we find out theres a little girls softball team staying and a family reunion taking place in the hotel. We hit the pool, water was clean but the walls around were filthy, they need some major scrubbing. No wireless internet available in the rooms, only the... More

I just spent two nights at the Avalon. I stayed there as part of a group that was performing in New Orleans and all our travel arrangements were taken care of by the group director. The hotel was not horrible, but I would not recommend it. It has supposedly been completely renovated since Katrina, however, I question how thorough and... More

My spouse and I stayed here the first weekend in April. The hotel is well located for highway access to the city; however there is a lot of rebuilding in the area. There was ample free parking, but we didn’t know quite what to expect, as there was a guard posted at the entrance to the lot. Since there is... More

We stayed here 3 nights in late March. We didn't expect perfection given the price but the bare bones breakfast, the many cleanliness issues and the lack of basic repairs (that didn't appear to have anything to do with Katrina damage) left us very disappointed . The first night we also found one of the blankets with a huge rip.... More

Booked this trip and reservation online and had to modify the reservation upon arrival at the hotel. While the modification was not taken care of at the time of departure and was very minor in nature, I completed a customer survey after returning from this trip and to my surprise, my credit card was credited with the change in the...

Had a wonder full experience. Stayed with my 7 year old. The room was spacious, and the beds were very comfortable. The restaurant is under construction and we look forward to that experience. Plenty of towels and hot water. The entire building is non smoking, and that was most refreshing. It was too cold to swim, but the pool looked... More

I just stayed in the hotel as part of a youth group for the AAU Junior Olympic games. Although we reserved the hotel almost a year in advance, disclosed we were a youth group, they did not seem able to accommodate children in the hotel. There were other groups in the hotel which caused the hotel to be full to... More

We stayed here two nights to go to Six Flags. The hotel is nicely decorated and clean. The parking is free if you can find a space. We had to park sometimes out back in an unlit area. The pool was always very crowded and my husband found a condom wrapper near it when he took our kids to swim.... More

We went on a mini vacation with our kids. We picked the Avalon because of its location and price. Our room was 59 per night, with fridge and microwave. It included free shuttle, free high speed internet, and continental breakfast. The hotel lobby was very clean and well decorated. Hotel staff was top notch- helpful and nice. Our room was... More
