“See what else u can find for $66”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

I should've immediately asked for a refund and jumped back in the car to scout for another motel...however hubby was tired and ready to simply relax so I took one for the team - since it's for one night only. But wow, the bathtub had stains and u could tell it had not been cleaned (toilet and sink counter cleaned & "appealing"). Dead insects on the window seal, old & overly worn comforter on the bed, overly used/thin wash/hand towels, etc. In fairness it's doable if ur a person who has "ruffed" it before, but I would not stay here more than 24 hrs! Oh yeah, <1 mi to the airport, free wireless, cable, nice tv, location close to eateries, stores, gas stations...AND OTHER MOTELS/HOTELS. :)

We screwed up. We rented for a week without checking the reviews and looking at the room. We were tired from being on the road. The first room we checked in to, was demolished. I posted a picture, mattresses turned over, and a bug fogger on the floor. The bathroom was dirty with trash left on the counter. The toilet tank top was not in the bathroom, it was out in the floor. They moved us to another room that was poor to say the least. It was hot inside of the room, as it was a corner room. By morning, the room had cooled off some. We had them move us to another room. Bedding in very bad shape, carpet filthy, desk chair wore out. It gets very hot in here during the afternoon and evening. My wife asked and the manager(?) came up, and he said he can't help it if it is hot outside. He stated it was our fault for booking a room on the top floor. Umm, well, we were not asked if we had a preference!
The staff is rude, and not helpful at all. Cleaning? NOT. Wife has to go get towels when we want clean ones! Looks like I will be in the NOLA area for a while this summer. Definitely moving out when rent is up. Sleeping under a busy bridge may be better! Also, if you want to use the pool, you have to wait for all of the friends and family of the staff to clear out!!!!
DO NOT RENT FROM THIS PROPERTY

Myself and a friend from the UK stayed here for one night and were a little concerned about other review's however thought we would make up our own mind.

The rooms were clean / good value for money and Paul - the manager was outstanding and couldn't do enough to help.

I travel regularly in the US and this hotel is absolutely fine.

Definitely recommend for the money.

After traveling from Myrtle Beach, SC we arrived at a tired looking building. Check in was fast and easy. We we got to our room it was a fair size but it was apparent that the carpets were very dirty, the furniture was old and dirty and we tried not to think of what the comforter on the bed may have. Bathroom was clean. We went down to the pool and really noticed that the hotel is being let go, perhaps it is the managers. There must have been a sale on the paint as the whole courtyard including railings on the above floors were all the same color. Maintenance in the pool area and courtyard was nearly none existent. I f you have an alternate destination I would suggest you take it. For a one night stay for the airport in the morning , I think it would suffice?

I was hesitant to book this hotel based on some of the reviews, but everything else was sold out or really expensive for just one night. I booked it through the Choice toll-free number and when I voiced my concerns the represenative said "Choice Hotels does not have any bad hotels in it's chain" so I gave him green light! Well it was a really bad experience and one that I regret. Even for the amount of money paid it was not a good value, I have stayed at real dives in the past, but this one is takes the cake! The posting about the roaches is true. That's the first thing I saw, giant roaches dead on the way into the front desk, and also some by the room doors and on the "path" to my room. The room smelled of stale liquor and smole, it had really old bedding, torn carpet, dirt, dust all over! Housekepping is abviously not a concern here. The area is close to the airport, and across from a nice mall with Macy's and such, however, the crowd that was in the lobby and hagging out by pool looked more like drug dealers, junkies and prostitutes! The breakfast was a joke.....the place was filthy - no fruit, milk was gone, no napkins, no forks, cereal spilled all over, no syrup for the waffles (one waffle maker for 6 people waiting in line) we bolted and will never go back!

Room Tip: Avoid at all cost!

This particular Econo Lodge was the worst Choice Hotel facility we have ever stayed over the relatively long duration of time we have focused on the Choice Hotel network. Perhaps foremost was the total lack of competent management for hours at a time. For example, the business center (sic!) was one computer with the printer behind the check-in desk. However, the most frustrating aspect for "travelers" was that although the Business Center stated in plain view a 15-minute limitation when others wanted access (to do no more than a 1-minute plane check-in/boarding pass function), the management stood by for a 3-hour period "condoning" the disrespectful behavior of one single individual that "owned" the computer in plain view of the management and/or motel employees. Other notable shortfalls included: a smoke-filler non-smoking room, a questionable relationship with the local cab service (that did not publish their rates as the vast majority of NOLA cab companies do, and the extraordinary pictures of the motel in their .pdf brochure that were nothing like the reality of this horrific motel! Just me! Bottom line: These Folks Really Stink It Up Bigtime

The Econo Lodge in Kenner is very close to the airport so it is convenient, and I've had pretty good luck with this line so I don't know what happened with this one. The bathroom sink had men's beard stubble in the sink - either the sink had not been cleaned at all, or the sink had backed up and this stubble floated back in. Either way, I couldn't even brush my teeth in that sink. Plus there was long black hairs on the bathroom floor, hair on the toilet, and the same long hair on the towels. The bed side table had rings on it - might have been stains/permanent but who knows. The grounds were very nice and the pool looked clean, but once you see a dirty sink, that pretty well "sinks" the place.
