My sister and I decided to take a quick trip to visit New Orleans, but we did not want to pay the high city prices, so we choose this place because between the 2 of us, it was affordable and not too far from the French Quarter area. She and I read trip advisor, but we decided that maybe people were either exaggerating or they were just complainers. WE WERE VERY WRONG and are SORRY THAT WE STAYED HERE! NEXT TIME WE WILL SPEND MORE and STAY SOMEWHERE alot BETTER! Here's why: The clerk who checked us in was a very rude young man. He acted like he was doing us a favor by even talking to us. We must have disturbed him by walking into the lobby---TOO BAD-You work in customer service and if you do not like people, then you should find some other type of work that is not hospitality. My sister and I tried to ask him some questions about the area and he was very dismissive toward us. Did not say thank you or have a nice day. So much for southern hospitality. When we walked to the room, we noticed some undesirable type of people hanging around. We were glad to get to our room and lock the door. The room was not up to any decent standards. The bedding clearly had not been changed. The housekeepers must have remade the bed with the same dirty sheets, which were badly stained. It was a good thing we had our own blankets to use, and we were tired, so we just made the bed with our stuff and made do. My sister sprayed some air freshener because the room had a terrible musty-mildew odor. I called the front desk in the morning and spoke to 2 other clerks and got the same I don't care rude treatment when I voiced my concerns. I requested that a manager contact us, but to no avail. The second night, I heard a drug and prostitution deal go on outside our window. My sister called the desk and a woman answered and said well I can send security but what else do you want me to do and then hung up on me! We checked out and felt so relieved to just get out of there. We paid over $180 for 2 nights and it was so NOT worth it. Please do yourself a favor and DO NOT STAY HERE! This place is no better than a brothel or drug house. Even one of their staff members told me when I stepped outside to smoke my cigarette that the police are over there often and that it is especially not safe for women traveling alone or people with children. Something that I noticed was dark hair all over the bathroom--not ours as my sister and I are both light blondes. Because of the hostile way we were treated, we didn't even bother to mention anything about the bathroom. This place should be condemmed! We have stayed in cheaper places than this one that are much cleaner and the staff is much nicer.
Good rooms are Someplace Else!!!
