My husband booked this place because there were so many conventions going on in the city and there wasn't very many options. When we got in our taxi from the airport the taxi driver told us that this was not a good area. As we drove through the area we noticed that the city had been working on the area... More

Quite close to the city center by car, the quartier is shady, do not even walk there. The motel is quite good compared to the price, go there if you dont want to spend much money and you have a car. There is a gate that closes at night and make you feel safe inside. The rooms are basic, quite... More

We went to NO specifically to see a band at the Rock-N-Bowl, wanted to spend an extra day, but still on a budget. This motel is very clean and the staff super friendly and informative. It's out of the way of the French Quarter, but we found it really easy to get around on public transportation. Bus stop very close... More

I reserved a room at this motel 1) because it was close to where I needed to be 2) the price and 3) the history on the website. To be honest, I expected something just a bit more upscale, but the room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, lots of counter space in the bathroom, even had a refrigerator... More

When driving down MLK blvd you still see what Katrina has left behind but do not let that deter you from staying in this beautiful motel full of history! This motel renovated to bring back a little of its former glory is wonderful. The rooms were comfortable and clean and quite. The second floor deck is a place to sit... More

Where to start. We thought this would be a great place to stay because of all the good reviews we read online. The only poor reviews we read had to do with the distance from the French Quarter and other fun NOLA attractions, which we weren't worried about because we had a car. Anyway, the night we arrived, they did... More

I stayed here for 7 nights for Jazzfest last week. The price was very cheap compared to Downtown and French Quarter hotels . I know it is not in the best area but it was safe to use the bus during the day but to be sure I used cabs in the evenings.Even with the cost of cabs included it... More

This is a no-frills motel room, very basic room, but clean and the room was large, and I think it is an OK alternative if you have a car. The neighborhood is dead in the evening and looks partially run-down, but on MLK Boulevard I saw lots of what looked like new housing, so maybe it will eventually have at... More

Enjoyed a quick night stay before an early morning Amtrak departure. Got priced out of the CBD and this place cost well under half of anything closer in on a Friday durinf April. Reception was quick & super helpful. Comfy beds, a fridge & new TV rounded off a neutral room. Great feature is the restored bathrooms which include a... More

This hotel is fairly close to the French Quarter and Garden district, but is right across the street from a pretty shady housing development. Fortunately, the hotel has a gate that they close and lock at night which certainly provided some peace of mind. The hotel was clean, but had an overwhelming scent of cleaning products; we had to let... More
