“great location and a great value hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2010

This hotel is in the heart of Metairie--a popular suburb and is very near Clearview mall. Despite the location being just off the interstate, the rooms are super quiet and clean. Great place to stay for a quick weekend visit or even an extended shopping trip!
There's free breakfast, which is always a perk in a hotel, but I couldn't resist a great cup of cafe au lait and beignets at the one of the local stands--my personal fave is Morning Call off of Severn.
I'd recommend--it's also fairly close to the airport for those flying in but not looking to stay so close that they hear planes all night long!

Each time we stay at this Sleep Inn we feel like we're staying with good friends. The staff are warm and courteous professionals who help with each request we might have. The housekeeping from the lobby to the rooms is neat and very very clean. Since our last visit they've added express check-out which we appreciate. Location is convenient, while not a new property the property is maintained to a "like new" feel, the free breakfast is more than adequate to start a busy day, and the prices are ultra reasonable for Greater New Orleans. This place just gets better.

First, the hotel staff overall was excellent, very polite and courteous.The rooms were comfortable. Staff provided directions for dining and other places with no problem. Called ahead and spoke with staff in reference to hotel amenites and everything was explained with no problems. The hotel is convienent to the airport (5-10 minutes) and close to downtown (15-20 minutes) , French Quarter. The hotel was very quiet at night and the family really appreicated the continental breakfast each morning. Check-out was very fast and the staff from housekeeping, maintenance and the front desk thanked us for staying at the hotel, wished us a safe trip back home and hoped to see us again. A few minor issues, ice machine on our floor did not work the entire 5 days we were there, guest hotel dryer did not work, but the staff allowed us to use the housekeeping hotel dryer. Most hotels do not allow that, but I was very impressed. Overall, this hotel is very nice that offers all of the basic amenites needed for a nice stay in the New Orleans area without the expense from downtown(French Quarter, Garden District, New Orleans East).

Aside from a few small glitches, we had a great stay. The front desk was extremely kind, warm and helpful and made the trip, especially Veronica and manager, Heidi. Really Convienent to downtown & the FQ, but also one block from Cafe Du Mode-Metairie. Tiny Parking lot and we always got back too late for a spot. No big deal with easy street parking. We would go back and the hotel perfectly fit our needs. The Friendly Staff really made the stay very comfortable and enjoyable. Thanks Guys!!!

We traveled from Fort Myers, Florida to Metairie/New Orleans for a senior trip with high school students in April 2010. We traveled with 11 students and 3 staff members. From the time we checked in at the front desk staff took care of every thing we needed. Our rooms were ready for us with room keys already assigned for each student and staff which made the check in process extremely smooth. Throughout the time of our stay the staff was so friendly and willing to help with anything that we needed. The rooms were basic but offered plenty of room for all of our luggage. The location worked really well for us because it was located right off the interstate which made our travel experience back and fourth from New Orleans very easy. The breakfast offered was small with only a few choices but it worked well for our students and staff as the food they provided was very good. The best thing about the hotel has to be the staff, the rest of our stay was wonderful but the staff really put in some time with us and made us very comfortable. The worst thing about the trip would have to be leaving, our students and staff were able to do some site seeing in the Garden District, see the National WWII Museum and attend a Hornets game but the most important thing we did while in town was the community service project in the 9th Ward which was extremely rewarding. We loved our stay and would recommend the hotel to anyone.

As a consultant I travel every week and stay in many different properties. The Sleep Inn in Metairie, LA is like a home away from home. Everytime I arrive I can count on a friendly smile and a cheery greeting. The room is very neat and clean and the bed is comfortable. The free breakfast is not extravagant but it is fresh and nutricious and hot. The location is great with easy access to I-10, shopping, and great food. If you don't know the area, the staff is always ready with a helpful recommendation. Whenever I stay in the New Orleans area, this is my hotel of choice.

My husband and I stayed here on a short trip to New Orleans. I don't understand the negative posts - the hotel is clean, the staff is helpful, the rates are reasonable, the neighborhood seemed safe, parking was free, all the rooms have a fridge and microwave, and we had no problems of any kind with our stay. The hotel is located within walking distance of numerous Metairie restaurants, nightlife, and a mall with a movie theater and a large Target store. It's just a short drive to the French Quarter and other New Orleans attractions, and is much cheaper than French Quarter and downtown New Orleans hotels. The rooms are not very big and the furniture is outdated, but that's true of every Sleep Inn I've ever visited and I'm sure is why these hotels usually fit within my budget. Also, I've found Metairie to be a better location than Slidell when visiting New Orleans - easier drive into NOLA and pleasanter surroundings.
