Hotel is a 7 storey building with most rooms having a balcony facing frontside (though only the smoking room people will have access to it, for non smoking they are locked). Quite close to New Orleans downtown with the Bourbon street within 6 miles. Rooms were clean and OK - Overall a decent stay.

Room Tip: Choose a non smoking room if u need access to balcony

Firstly, let me start by confirming that I regularly stay at budget hotels. I did not expect luxury at all, but even I was quite shocked by the Knights Inn. The electrical wiring looked extremely dangerous and we had to unplug our fridge as it made a terrible high pitched noise. In the corridor near our room there was a large pile of old air conditioning units that nobody had bothered to get rid of. The lift was terrifying and a sign on the door basically stated that it gets stuck ('If you get stuck in the elevator please be patient'!). It takes ages to get to the French Quarter and Superdome despite being advertised as being 'within easy access'. There is nothing at all in the local area unless you count a dodgy Waffle House as something. Even though the area and hotel were bad, the staff and owners could have made it at least a little better with good service, but no luck there. They wouldn't even call a taxi for me to get to the airport! I'd never stay here again, nor would I recommend it.

Halls are dingy, elevator is rickety, public restroom in the lobby is "out of order". Non-smoking rooms reek of cigarette smoke, no wifi anywhere except the lobby (despite being told there was wifi in the rooms, when we specifically asked) and the toilet is NOT attached to the floor. Needless to say, we'll be finding a new hotel for the rest of the trip.

My biggest regret: that I have to rate them one star because I can't give them 0.
