The very affordable hotel is located on an old naval base but still caters to military and non-military that come to stay in the area on business or pleasure. It is located in Gretna, LA which is a small area within New Orleans. It’s about 1.3 miles from the heart of downtown but I wouldn’t recommend walking since it is... More

Me, my husband, and our little girl just checked out actually and we had a great time. The old naval base is a little run down, but it's obvious to me that they are in the process of renovating it. It's on the opposite side of the river as the French quarter. You can walk or drive to the ferry.... More

We took a chance on staying here as we normally stay in bed and breakfasts. This turned out to be a gem. Very reasonable price. Liked the supplied kitchenette as we made breakfast every morning. The Inn is just 5 minutes from Algiers Point so we took the ferry ($2 each way) each morning. Quiet neighborhood. Rooms spacious and clean.

We stayed for 2 nights. The room was clean and comfortable. The only down side is that the nearby ferry runs intermittently and there are no restaurants close by. We did find a local Chinese restaurant that was good.

Big clean rooms. Fridge for leftovers. Quick easy access to downtown NOLA. There was a lively festival going on right down the road. The only real annoyance was that you can hear everything through the walls. If you need to do efficient travel, this is it.

Nice quiet hotel in a quiet area. The staff was nice and called us a cab to head downtown. There's a kitchenette & modern bathroom.

Staying in Algiers

Neighborhood Profile
Algiers
Sitting pretty across the Mississippi River from the rambunctious French Quarter, the Crescent City’s second oldest neighborhood is as historic and as scenic as any – just a lot less showy about it. With its numerous 19th and early 20th century homes and plentiful parks and riverside green space for cycling and walking, subdued and low key Algiers yields the best views of New Orleans and offers a quiet haven from the hustle and bustle in other parts of town. Most of the area’s activity, for visitors anyway, takes place at Algiers Point where the famous Canal Street / Algiers Ferry has been the main attraction since 1827 and is still giving folks one of the best rides in town at very affordable rates. Restaurants, bars and music venues here all but guarantee the utmost of authentic experiences sans any hype or high prices.
