Our experience with Super 8 Hotels has been hit and miss. This one was definitely a hit. In a (expensive) town that was so ravaged by Katrina it is a stand out in its upkeep, cleanliness and rates.
The staff was very friendly and responsive, they have personnel whose job it is towalk around and keep an eye on things and they have controlled entrances to the under roof parking. It uses manufactured metal work to invoke the locality's atmosphere and is laid out in the courtyard style, which is covered atrium style, except the pool.
The abandoned skeleton of what was once a Ramada Inn stands next door on the north side and is a little scary. The local government is taking steps to find and hold the owners responsible. This is a long process but it will come down eventually. But we didn't feel particularly unsafe by its presence; just a little sad and maybe just a little creeped out.
It was convenient to everything because of its proximity to the interstate and major thoroughfares. University of New Orleans (We had an event there was less than 10 minutes, The National WWII Museum (formerly the D-Day Museum) was about 20 minutes and the French Quarter (a must see) about twenty minutes.
Rates were very reasonable, the rooms were about the cleanest I have ever been in (high end hotels included) and the facility is obviously well maintained with recent renovations evident. Couldn't ask for a more responsive and friendly staff. If there is one negative, it's that the elevators are small and we could not coax the luggage cart in with our stuff on it.
