First this "Motel" is what it is. We did not stay here by choice, rather the office put us up here. The staff is very friendly and there is a brand new Ihop attached to the motel. This place would be fine for 1 night, but we were there on business for 7 and because of the Super Bowl there was no where else to go. That said, you are right next to the airport and the planes start taking off at around 530AM and you will hear each and every one. Also there is a train that sometimes rolls through anywhere from midnight to 3AM and the conductor seems to get pleasure out of blowing the horn when he passes by the motel...some advice, turn on the fan on your ac/heater unit and the white noise will help cut down on the planes & trains.
As far as the room, some have been "redone" others have not. I was orginally put in a room that wasn't and it was filthy. I was then moved to a new room and it was ok. All of the lamps and light fixtures are rusted and what ever you do, don't look in the corners of the room as you will see stains and hair, etc there and it will gross you out. The fridge and microwave seemed new and they worked fine, but not all rooms are equipt. The shower curtain seemed new but the towels seemed old and ratty, just hope they use a lot of bleach when they wash them.
The parking lot was well lit, but there didn't seem to be any security around. The drive to New Orleans takes about 20 mins and you could walk to the airport.
