BED BUG complaints at desk went unheard only another room. I stay at 100 choice hotels a year- I'm disgusted here being a choice... More

Breakfast was a joke. I informed staff the waffle mix was empty but it was not refilled while we were there. The milk... More

Large room, Clean Bathroom, Good breakfast Friendly Staff Value for money Near food outlets and supermarket Not to far from the CBD. Though I'd drive and not walk, we had everyone talked us out of walking Plenty of parking in town

If you want a clean room for good value that is less than a $15 taxi ride to the French Quarter then this could be the place for you. Be advised that the hotel is not in an area with great amenities, shopping, or things to do. However, access to downtown is 5 miles away-easy drive. The biggest complaint is... More

Visited for St Patrick's Day weekend 03/2013 and requested a non-smoking room online and had to stay in a room for smokers because the hotel was overbooked. Upon entering the room, I noticed a musty odor. It smelled like the carpet had been wet and not completely dried. There was a substance on the wall...appears as though, something had dripped... More

two words.. bed bugs!! The desk clerk did not want to offer a refund. Finally gave in and gave me a piece of paper with refund (didn't really state refund). Found later that the room was charged twice to my account.

Stayed here for one night on a recent trip to NOLA. Rooms were clean and decent but smelled a bit like smoke in a non-smoking room.

DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL! My husband and I stayed from out of town to visit his family. We were out of our room for 12 minutes by foot and we were robbed. Our room was gotten into (not forcibly) and my laptop computer, digital camera, and my husband's watches were stolen. The management would not help us or... More
