I was Ok with this Place until i woke up and tried to take a Shower.... No hot water. And the Bed was Hard . No Box Spring under the Mattress.. Security is good there. You can't even enter the Building unless you have a Room Card Key which is good.

This motel looked fine the rooms were large and reasonably clean (though we did kill cockroaches in both rooms we were in) The problem is they lock the doors in the corridors between the rooms and the reception.....and that is where the danger lies....we were held up at gun point here and there was no other way to get to...

Yes, the area around here seems sketchy. But NOLA has a lot of sketchy areas. It wouldn't keep me from visiting, I just know to be extra careful. Hotels were extra expensive during our visit to NOLA, which is why we settled here. We just needed a place to sleep and shower. This motel worked out for our needs. Our... More

The hotel was okay. It was walking distance to Walmart and other fast food locations. The bathroom door looked like it's been through the shredder. The bed was hard. The room looked clean but very empty. For the price I cannot complain.

Very nice motel- new rooms it looked like, had the necessary amenities needed. Perfect location from downtown- a $9-15 uber ride to Frenchman/ Bourbon streets. What got us was the area- both uber drivers on different nights had warned us about that area and not to leave the hotel. If you tripadvisor any hotels/motels on that road the reviews will... More

Positive: Quite near to downtown; good variety of tv channels - we could watch German Bundesliga (soccer) live; low rates. Negative: you can't open the window, so the ugly smell stays in the room - big and small cockroaches liked it there. Bedsheet was dirty (but they gave me a clean one on request); stains on walls and ceiling.

This place is pretty sleazy. The room was very musty and dirty. The bed had no blanket, just sheets with a few cigarette burns in them. Two wasted guys got into a yelling match in the middle of the night outside our door. The bathroom was fairly disgusting with not quite hot enough water. Cheap is cheap I guess, but... More

Very friendly staff. The motel is old but clean. I felt safe and secure in this motel. I was traveling with my children and I had no concerns whatsoever. A short drive (less than 10 min) to the French Qtr. Parking was easy with our moving truck. Close to fast food and stores. I would recommend this to anyone who... More

Booked at last minute and all hotels in French quarter were extremely expensive on Mardi Gras so was relieved to find this motel 6 which was reasonable value and only a ten to fifteen minute bus ride from downtown/ French quarter( bus stop short walk away). Usual type of motel 6 , clean and functional, no frills and towels very... More

NO BLOWDRYER in a whole motel. You cannot get it even for extra money. Ended up buying a cheap blowdryer at the nearest Walmart. You can get an iron though (I am not sure if you have to pay for it). Clean sheets and towels (2 per customer per day). No shampoo, conditioner or lotion. 1 peace of soap per... More
