Woke up to a dozen bites! Clearly caused by bed bugs and not just leaving the patio open. We took a pic and googled searched and it was an adult bed bug! They offered no apologies cause I'm sure they already knew it was a problem!!!!! I'm still itching! Do not stay here!!!!!!!! Sleep in your rental!!!!

I should have known this place was horrible soon as I realizes they charged my bank card 2X for 1 night and didn't want to give me a refund. But that was my least worries. Me and my family had to check out because our room was infested with bed bugs! They were crawling all over the bed & headboard... More

This is by far the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. I've never seen so much filth in my life.. Walked in the room and the chair was covered in red stains, pretty sure our room had been a past murder scene.. Outside was not much different, even though it's cheap, it's in a TERRIBLE location.. The receptacles do not... More

Don't mind all the picky people's negative comments. Paid far better money for the same type accommodations downtown. Room was clean, place was quite. It is a older hotel and as such has minor cosmetic dings. As far as the bugs I read about, don't leave the balcony wide open with the lights on, problem solved. Great hotel for the... More

All I needed was the basics and I thought for the price it would be worth it. I checked-in around 10pm and left at 5am the next morning because I woke up with dozens of bed bug bites from face to foot. DO NOT STAY HERE.

I have travelled the world, including countries in Africa and Asia, and have stayed in hostels/motels priced at less than a $1 day. I have never stayed at a place as disgusting at Knights Inn New Orleans on Read. The building structure itself looks like it needs to be condemned, and I would even doubt that even the elevators are... More

Checked in around 5 pm. Headed right out for a scheduled tour only to return to small Insects on toilet. No staff to deal problem. Front desk had a friend come and spray bug killer on and around commode. They gave us bleach in a spray bottle if we wanted the toilet cleaner. There was a lot of Paint on... More

We stayed here only because we arrived in the New Orleans area late at night and didn't want to spend a lot of time looking for a place to stay...(boy were we sorry we didn't keep looking!!) Buyer beware - This place DOES NOT look like the pictures posted online! In actuality this OVER PRICED flea-bag of a motel or... More

We stayed during the Sugar Bowl. I made my reservations online. By looking at the photos, the hotel looked clean and well kept. The photos were deceiving and we paid too much money to stay in a rundown dirty hotel (the price was elevated due to the Sugar Bowl event). The breakfast consisted of bread, cereal, and juice that you... More
