4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Stayed 10/3-10/5/14 & 10/31-11/2/14 beds are comfy, friendly staff, safe environment, cold ac, nice view of city lights from balcony, popeyes , waffle house in walking distance , stores and gas nearby .They are in the process of renovating and some of the rooms have been renovated . The room we had was not, but for the price it was really nice no complaints. we loved our first stay here and the second stay was even better. Definitely our next stay . You will get a good nights rest with no problems.

Room Tip: stayed on 5th floor front room good view no noise

Also my husband LOVES the donuts for breakfast. Cheap and close enough to NOLA too. We didn't expect much but you get a decent value for the money. And so close to New Orleans too. 2nd floor had great wifi

Room Tip: Facing Lowes side has lovely sunsets. Wifi best on lower floors.

So when you check in the place looks adequate from the lobby, then you go to get on the elevator and are horrified by what looks like something out of a housing development in Detroit, or maybe Soviet Union Russia. The ice machine had bugs being dispensed, our room had insects crawling all over the nightstand and sink, pungent odor when you first walk in the room, and when you ran the shower, the faucet was still running water, so the water pressure was lower as a result. Their "breakfast area" is just a run down microwave and coffee machine, no free breakfast here, not that I think I would want anything they would serve. Would never stay here again...stay away!

What a mess! I stayed at the Knights Inn on Read Rd in New Orleans on Sept 19th and 20th of 2014 and found the place to be in very poor condition. Most of what I saw could be corrected with a scrub brush or a little paint, but it appears the management doesn't want to spend the $$ needed to make it look presentable. Stained walls, smelly elevator, sticky footprints that were in the same place all during my stay, power plug plates hanging off the wall, lights not working in the rooms. etc. I had to change rooms b/c of a wet carpet issue. One light over the bed had no bulb; the other one had a bulb but did not work. Lights over the sink were out. Not a place I will be returning to.

Room Tip: find another motel.

When I first saw this hotel it has 2 1/2 stars out of five But @ $54 - $10 less then the next hotel I was like what the heck but in arrival everything was fine - room was clean spacious with an open view. They have fridge microwave cable in room - waffle breakfast. A pool parking places to eat CVS gas station literally next door / across the street - very close to the freeway entrance - 15 minutes freeway drive from downtown I don't know what people were expecting giving such low score but for me it was exactly what I needed- only thing annoying was the desk in the room too high for the chair otherwise for the price i paid it was perfect

They were doing a remodel so it was very messy. When you walked in, it wasn't bad. Once you headed for the room you could tell that it was dirty and neglected. Coffee pot didn't work , refrigerator wasn't cold enough and hair dryer didn't work. If we had known what it was like we never would have booked there.

Room Tip: Find another hotel!
