“Pleasant stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Stayed 4 nights. The room was clean and the a/c worked great. The bathroom was clean, although we did have to ask for some bath towels (none in the room). The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was okay, but rather limited. There was a good area for a pet walk.

The room smelled like animals had been roaming. They were full so we had to suffer through the night.the desk clerk promised to bring room spray and never did. However we were able to move to another room the next day. I wouldn't reccommend.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Our stay was for one night, the city of New Orleans was very crowded so I expected a calm quiet hotel, not so. Overall the staff seemed sloppy not very professional, they were helpful but the whole experience was not good. Issues with the shower, not working only cold water would come out. Their breakfast area was messy, the bathroom door faces directly to the seating tables, breakfast options limited, compared to other LQ hotels where I have stayed. The TV was running a TNT comedy, it seemed the front desk clerk was watching this, normally a hotel should have some neutral station on, mostly news channels. The whole atmosphere of the hotel was not inviting. This LQ should learn form the one in Flagstaff, AZ. I consider this one the sample of perfection for a hotel in this rate range. My recommendation is # do not go to this city when they are holding a large convention such as the Essence Convention and #2 stay at a hotel with better standards of service, do your homework.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

It's an older, external door hotel located in a mall parking lot. Our room was clean (and smelled like it given all the cleaning fluid odor) and the beds comfortable. Despite the outside facing door and the close proximity of the highway, we had no issues falling asleep, nor any discomfort or concerns about security. The breakfast selection is limited, but was good enough for us.

We used the close proximity of the free ferries to gain access to the French Quarter- as of July 1st 2013, the hours for the Canal Street/Algiers ferry have been greatly reduced, and the Canal Street/Gretna ferry service ceased all together due to budget cuts. If you are planning on staying here and using the ferries, be sure to double check the ferry times at the LA DOT web site. Even without a ferry, it is a very short drive over the bridge to downtown NOLA, and less expensive parking lots available with a little searching. Given that most hotels in the French Quarter or downtown are getting upwards of $30 a night for parking alone, this hotel provides good value if you're willing to make the short drive and to find a lower cost lot while taking the street car to reduce the walking on a hot day.

We'd stay here again, especially if taking a cruise....
