My wife and I arrived a day early for a high school reunion last week-end and the fancy-schmancy hotel we reserved for the week-end on St. Ann Street in the French Quarter was booked up for that night so we had to find something close by for the night. My wife found the Motel 6 on the Internet so we looked at the reviews and they sounded pretty darn good!
When we drove into the parking lot we noticed the parking area was gated and the entrances to the rooms were on the inside like a hotel, instead of opening outside like most motels. One needs a scan key to enter the building if not entering through the lobby. The room was spacious, just like one reviewer said. It looks like the building used to be a hotel bought out by the Motel 6 chain, I don't know.
The restroom was roomy, too, bigger than the one we had at the pricier Place d'Arms the next two days. The towels have seen better days, though, but they still dried!
The room had a desk and the Wifi signal was strong. The air conditioner was plenty cold like I like, much to my wife's dismay!
It's only an eleven minute drive to the French Quarter from there. If you're thinking about sightseeing the French Quarter area and want a nice room for a great price, this is the place. You'll feel very secure in your room and there are plenty of fast food places nearby if you need a quick meal. There's even a Subway right in front of the motel.
