When we arrived at this seedy location and saw the gated entrance my wife began demanding we go to a different part of town. It was a ver scary place to be and we cancelled our nonrefundable reservation even though it cost $100. it may be a comfortable room, my wife and I did not even go to the front... More

My boyfriend and I wanted to see the French Quarter. It's pretty far away and you can find other places for about the same price in much better locations. The neighborhood is ugly and with virtually no good food options around. Also, the rooms are nasty! On the first one we went to there was terrible smelly mold on the... More

I stayed at this inn for one night during a long drive. It is a bit outside the city but it was expected given the budget. t is about 15 min of drive to the french quarters area. The room and the bathroom were clean and AC worked quite well. The only problem I faced was not having cold water... More

My family and I wanted to visit New Orleans and go see the French Quarter. The moment we got to this hotel, service was decent, but the pool outside looked like it hadn't been washed in ages. When we entered the room, it looked old and worn out. The first cabinet we then opened was being occupied by a disgustingly... More

This was an interesting motel. After reading the various reviews, I was unsure about staying there, but now that I have, I’ve gained some insight and overall it is positive. The neighborhood is indeed a bit sketchy, as in I wouldn’t take my family out for a walk at night, but since it is mostly car dealerships, industrial services, cabinet... More

So I wanted somewhere within budget (max $80 night) which was still close to French Quarter and surrounding areas. You will need a car (or cab) to get there, but for me this was ideal. As noted by other reviewers the compound is gated, I felt it was safe and secure. The area it is situated in may not be... More

Was my first time in new orleans! So we were out and about most of the day. Great if you're just looking for a bed and a shower. The location was about 5-10 minutes driving distance from the french quarter. I personally don't like being around all the ruckus. And the best thing is the compound is gated! Overall great... More

If you are looking for a cheap but safe stay in NO, this may be your place. This motel is about 7 miles away from the city centre, so if your budget is tight, you have to consider the parking fees when moving around the city in a car (average parking for a whole day is of 10$, out of... More
