Anyone who said this place was "Excellent", "Very Good" or even "Average", must have stayed here when it was new. By far, this is one of the seediest locations I've ever lain my head. There were mattresses leaned against the walls around every corner we turned -including the lobby. The only picture posted for the property that is even remotely... More

The room was very big with plenty of empty space. No dresser or stands to lay your things on. There was only one chair with half a table and no carpet in this room. There was a nice hard wood floor which is probably alot easier to clean, but not comfortable on tired feet. The price was a little higher... More

The motel 6 was clean. The beds were comfortable, but don't look for amenities. There are none. Almost no drawer space, but a small place to hang some things. It was a good size room. Although there was free internet, it is very hard to connect to. Spend a few bucks more, and go to a classier joint.

My first impression of the place was pretty bad and did not really improve during the stay. Our group had a reservation for 3 rooms but they were unable to find it. The place looks like something out of The Shining, long hallways of dingy paint and suspiciously sticky red carpeting. Two of the rooms were fine, though oddly cavernous... More

We stayed here a couple of nights and were pleasantly surprised. The motel was clean and the staff was friendly. And the price was reasonable. We would stay here again. The manager said it was an old Howard Johnson so the rooms are quite large. Our room had a hard floor, which is different, but we knew the floors were... More

I titled this place creepy because that's the only emotion that I kept feeling. The hallways are a soft velvet type of carpet that is stained and the hallways smell like smoke. The first thing I noticed when I entered room 241 was, wow this room is huge in a creepy way. We all want a big room, but for... More

This motel 6 is wonderful. The staff are terrific, I have been staying almost 3 weeks now. They keep the hotel very clean and safe. It is 15 minutes from downtown New Orleans, right off the interstate. It is true about the area not being the safest. But as long as you stay away from Downman Rd. area you will... More

Room was large with newly renovated bathroom. Bed wasn't very comfy. Staff was helpful with travel tips. Hotel was fine, however the area seems rough. We didn't have a car, so it was not convenient getting into the city. Next time I'll pay the extra $$$ to stay downtown.

Looking for a comfortable and clean Motel 6? This one fits the bill. Rooms: -Clean and larger than average. -Desk, chair, lounge chair, luggage bench. -The bed is beyond broken in, but still comfortable. Building/Grounds: -Strong smell in halls and elevator. Does not permeate rooms. -Anti-climb fence around all parking areas. Gates that don't get closed, but the neighborhood seems... More
