In our attempt to find a budget inn for our 4 day New Orleans vacation, we came across Knights Inn online and booked it. It was at a great price, $50 a night online. You kind of get what you pay for, however. As soon as we walked through the front door, we were met with a very musty, unpleasant odor. We had no issues getting a room and the staff was friendly. The elevator reeked of cigarette smoke for the duration of our stay. Did people hang out in the elevator and smoked? We were given a room on the 6th floor, where there is a very large pile of broken, old air conditioning units just lying there right beside the elevator. That is preposterous and downright lazy. Our entire floor reeked of rotten food, as though someone had dropped an egg in a corner somewhere and no one had bothered to clean it up. The smell hadnt seeped into our room, thank goodness. The beds were adequate. The AC unit was in good working order. The floor of the bathtub, however, was flaking and got on everything whenever we showered. I made the mistake of taking a bath at one point and spent some time attempting to remove the white flakes from my hair. Breakfast was alright, if lacking a bit. I suppose we could not expect much for 50 a night. The pool remained closed for 2 days straight. When I asked an oblivious staff member as to when it would open, she just said she didn't know and went on her way. It's not too far from downtown, which was a good thing. It's also very quiet at night and nobody bothers you, which is another plus. We went in not expecting too much which is why it was adequate enough. If you're looking for something cheap and convenient for a low budget, albeit smelly and a bit disorganized, than knights inn should meet your needs. Don't expect too much, however.
