I'm originally from the area and have tried just about every hotel/motel in Metairie. This one is the absolute best for location - right down the street from the Vets location of Cafe Du Monde and about a ten minute walk from the new Panera Bread. Our stay was just okay, probably due in large part to the Saints/Falcons home game. Our room wasn't ready until after 3 pm (which is okay since that's checkin time) but worse than that, they gave us a smaller room than we had paid for. They did make it right, refunding most of the difference. Other than that, it was fine. Typical Sleep Inn.
