Once you are inside, there isn't too much more you could ask for in a moderately priced hotel. The staff is great, the place is clean, and there's a fitness room (sort of).
However, I cannot honestly say that I consider it to be located in a safe neighborhood. If you are coming to New Orleans, spend a few dollars extra and stay closer to the river (Sheraton, Hilton, Marriott, Harrah's, Doubletree, Ritz Carlton, Crowne Plaza, Westin, Wyndham, Holiday Inn, to name a few). This Quality Inn is unfortunately a few blocks off of Canal Street (a main road) and too far inland (where there are less people and not alot of action). The dark streets and shady characters can make a traveler a bit nervous at night. If you want the full experience (Bourbon Street, Decatur Street, Casino, River) the New Orleans Marriott or Sheraton is probably in the best location.
The positives of this hotel are the price and the staff. When I arrived (on an airport shuttle.. which, by the way, avoid! just split a cab with someone), my room was not ready so I was upgraded to a suite (two bedrooms, bathroom, sink, fridge) for no charge. The staff was able to recommend places to eat and things to do, also.
I would rate the staff a 5, the hotel itself a 4 (considering price), and the location is maybe a 1.5-2.
