The very look of its surroundings and the caged lot screams "run away," but inside are the largest standard motel rooms I have encountered and done up in a very modern decor. This comes at some price though as the raised platform beds, while chic, were Hades on the back after a day or two. Give me a good box...

Location was 10/20 minutes to everything. Spacious rooms. Clean well cleaner than I had imagined. I loved the "courtyard" my room was viewing a palm tree along with a freeway in the back ground. I had a room by the exit on the first floor because I said I smoke and the front desk man here let's get you a...

Stayed 3 nights. Would come again if ever in the area. Very Affordable. No carpet but I actually like it that way. Housekeepers were very helpful and always greeted me with smiles. They even gave hugs on my last morning.

I thought this place would be a bit rough because of the neighbourhood we looked to be in but found it quite adequate for a few nights stay. The laundry was fine. The room was spacious and clean and tidy. There looked to be homeless people living under the freeway just a couple of blocks from the Motel but we...

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...

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...

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.
