The parking was free, there was a full breakfast every morning, staff was friendly and took care of any concerns. The beds were comfortable. Quick drive to the French Quarters. We felt safe in the hotel, good hot water for showers, will definitely stay again for next visit to NOLA.

Staff here is super friendly and full of knowledge of the city. (Shout out to Esther) Perfect location for anywhere wanting to go, without the tourist prices. Breakfast is what to be expected so wasn't disappointed. The hotel is old but efforts to update are noticeable. We felt safe, slept great. Only downer was shower. Water was either HOT or... More

This place was reasonable priced. The staff was outstanding. Very friendly. The breakfast was great. The neighborhood is a bit shady. All in all not too bad. It is a bit run down but didn't bother me any. I liked the place.

Recently refurbished -- our room had new carpet, paint, drapes, and linens. Only the fixtures showed signs of age and they all worked well. Refrigerator and microwave in room. Good cooked breakfast including eggs and sausage. Clean outdoor pool with palm trees. WiFi was fast and worked well. Pleasant and efficient staff. Plenty of free parking. Easy to get to... More

Friendly hotel and nice staff The hard thing about is to find way of transportation to go around and no healthy restaurant around. I enjoy the time being here, the room clean and big tv. I had a hi way side room, during the time the cars nose was annoying

This hotel is pretty great. It's super easy to get to. The clarion has great prices. The staff are awesome very friendly. The rooms are clean and to me that's the most important thing. You can be nice but dirty and that would be a deal breaker for me. I've stayed here many times and will again. The parking is... More

Stayed here 10/14 - 10/15/2015 as part of a tour group. The room was fairly good size, with a separate sitting / TV area and a kitchenette. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was tiny with a small round sink and plenty of towels. Everything was clean. The continental breakfast included scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy, fruit, juice,... More

This is the old Best Western Avalon and has now been converted to a Clarion. It is located on the I-10 service road between Crowder and Read. I only stayed the night yesterday but had a good stay. This area of East New Orleans has not historically had the best reputation for safety but I had no issues and felt... More
