To get here you travel onto a defunct naval base, which is sketchy as all get out at midnight, but the hotel itself was fine. The big benefit of having nothing around is complete silence at night. No road noise, no drunks--nothing! The rooms are suites with kitchenettes. Our room was clean and simply furnished. Check in was painless. The... More

One of the best hotels we stayed in on a tour of the southern states, clean,comfortable and staff very pleasant, it is a little out of town ( which is what we wanted ) but transport to town is not a problem, couple of hundred yards and hop on a bus that runs every hour $3 will get you a... More

Thanking my lucky stars I had my GPS for this trip cause this place is not the easiest to find. Once there the check in was quick and pleasant. The rooms are large with two queen beds and a kitchenette. If you ever wanted some space in your room to put things down this is it. They even provide 2... More

It is certainly not within walking distance of downtown, nor near any restaurants but it was well priced, rooms were clean and quiet and staff were friendly and helpful. 30 minute walk to Algiers ferry and about a ten minute cab ride to downtown.

I wanted to love this hotel, I really did. Such a cool area and friendly staff but there were a couple of minor issues. Firstly let me give you my take on the area, because several people have commented about it. The hotel is in a secure lot. It is situated in Federal City in what seems like an ex... More

Had been reading reviews on here for awhile before booking. The place is 10 min from French Quarter out in a questionable area as people have posted. The inn itself is inside the old Navy base and is very safe. You can not walk to French quarter from here. Driving is not bad. We found a parking lot on St.... More

Booked for 3 days because of all the good reviews and 3times less expensive than staying in the Quarter! GPS would not take us directly to the street in was on and as a result had to end up calling to get better directions and it can be a pain maneuvering around the 1-way streets coming back from the ferry...

The room was very clean, and the hotel was quiet. It's an interesting location (on a closed naval facility). There are a few other businesses but also a lot of empty buildings. Although on the West Bank (of the Mississippi River) It's convenient to downtown. Price was reasonable compared to other places. It's nice to walk around the hotel, but... More
