“Not a place to stay”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

The room needed serious repairs. Hairs and lipstick found on beds. We requested a roll away bed for the room. The staff promised to have it to us by 10 pm. at 10:30pm and a shift change, the front desk never knew anything about it. We cancelled the bed request. Bathroom toilet seat was lose enough to go sailing off when in use. Mold found on all the pictures hanging on the wall. Room was stuffy and musty even with the AC on. The Ihop in the parking area was disgusting. The rug in the restaurant was sticky from syrup. Horrible service. Do not stay here!

Room Tip: Do not stay here!

My daughter and I took a trip for Spring Break. It was perfect location and we felt safe. It was about $17 one way for cab fare to be dropped off at Cafe Du Monde in the French Quarter. It beats the heck out of paying over $100 for a room in the French Quarter and then another $20-30 on top of that for parking. This hotels parking is free! The front desk was very helpful in helping us choose activities and will make the arrangements for you.

Although pricing is ok I really believe they should be 15 - 20 dollars cheaper especially for what you get. The room we stayed in had a strong musty smell to it that never went away. From what others staying in the hotel said there rooms were no different. The room was swept and vaccumed but felt dirty and outdated.
With that said it was still a decent stay, mainly because of the overpriced nature of the hotels in this city. Good location just a short 10 minute drive into the city. The location of the hotel puts in a safe area, we never felt nervous and there is an IHOP and a mall in the same parking lot for added convienance.

We arrived late at night and the hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. However, our first impression was not very good as the lobby was fairly dirty (stains on tile flooring from a busy day) and the stairs to the rooms were in need of vacuuming. The room that we were assigned to had a very foul odor and we woke up to barking dogs in a nearby room. The odor in the room was so severe that I had to say something to the staff about it. Fortunately, they were very considerate and helpful and relocated us into another room that was much better. The bed was comfortable and clean, yet the rooms and bathroom are in need of refurbishment. This hotel is conveniently located right next to the mall.

I find this hotel works well for me. The location and the clean rooms a good. So far the past two trips the price has gone up each time; however, there are discounts that you can use to bring it down. They were very willing to help me find the discounts as well.
