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.

We thank you again for your comments and hope that you will consider staying with us the next time you need a convenient hotel at a great price.
Very friendly staff that showed great service (Emily). I was able to check into the room early without any problems on the day of the Superbowl. Next door is an Ihop!!! The food at the Ihop was GREAT!! Thank you for a brief and pleasant stay!
It’s great to hear that you enjoyed your stay! We are pleased that the staff was so accommodating and that your check in went well. Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We hope you will come back and visit us soon!
Very friendly staff. Next door is an Ihop!! Other than that, there is nowhere to walk. Sat by the pool and it was ver clean. Cheerful decorations for Mardi Gras. Do not, do not, do not get any rooms on the back side of this hotel! All the others are perfectly fine. No Wifi in these rooms and you will "enjoy" hearing the trains blast their horns all day and night. And don't forget the airport is directly across the street so you hear every single plane go overhead. We didn't mind the planes but finally got used to hearing the trains. They only offer a few TV channels so don't think you will be able to enjoy a lot of TV stations. I will still say that the stay was very pleasant and I would go here again in a heartbeat.
It’s great to hear that you had a pleasant stay with us! We strive to provide excellent customer service with a staff that is friendly and helpful. We are also happy to hear that you were able to enjoy the beautiful weather out by our pool. While the plane and train noise is out of our control, we would like to apologize for your less than restful night sleep. We do hope you will come back and visit us soon!
Convenient location for airport travel and good service overall. 24 hour I-Hop on premisis was a plus. Rooms seem well maintained and the hotel felt secure. Staff on duty was very attentive and helpful. Thank you for a brief but pleasant stay!

if you're looking for a good nights sleep DON'T GO HERE!!! between the planes, a/c's loud noise and the trains that pass all night i didn't sleep a wink. the room was musky and the bathroom.... uggh, between the toilet not flushing and housekeeping. for travelers flying into New Orleans this is a poor introductory to the city.
Thank you so much for your review. Any feedback we receive helps to make us better. While the plane and train noise is something out of our control, we would like to apologize for your less than restful night sleep. The maintenance and housekeeping issues mentioned will be discussed with the appropriate departments. We would love for you to come back and give us another opportunity to show you that this is not typical for our hotel.
