Stayed here many times and have never been disappointed. Good value for the price. For fishermen, there are electrical outlets in the parking lot. It's right across the street from the Segnette State park.

Mr. Hugh I think your review title should have been "Fisherman’s Paradise" but we settle on just "review" I suppose:)

Thanks for being such a loyal guest over the many years. With our close proximity to Bayou Segnette State Park we take love our boating guests and always try to make sure that you and your boats are taken care of and plugged up most importantly.

Until next time,

Christopher

staff very friendly the manager helped us arrange several rooms for family coming in for wedding. Hot breakfast was very good not just your normal donut and juice you get in a lot of hotels. Cooked eggs, bacon, sausage and waffle maker. If you want to stay close to New Orleans and need a clean affordable room this is the place to stay.

It was a pleasure having your wedding party with us Hobert. We are always proud to be apart of a families lasting memories, especially such a wonderful occasion like a wedding. We were honored that you selected our hotel to be apart of such a happy time.

I'm also happy to hear you enjoyed your Hot Breakfast on the Bayou, like you said, it's no just juice and donuts. Where else can you get a Fluer De Lis waffle? (which is just one of our 78 Fluer De Lis's in the lobby)

Thanks again, and we look forward to taking care of you and your family in the future.

Perfect place to stay to experience New Orleans or go on a cruise. $30 for a cab downtown, nice place to come back to sleep away from the crowds. Awesome breakfast!! Plus, they let you park and cruise!! Very clean and convenient to everything.

Thanks Sydney. We're happy to hear that we were able to make your cruising experience a great one. Who needs to pay for parking when you can stay with "Framily" where it's always clean and comfy?

In fact the only thing aside you paying for your room that we require of you is to have a few delicious drinks with fancy umbrellas as you relax and enjoy yourselves on your vacation.

Thanks again and we'll see you next time for your next cruise!

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The kids even swim in the cold weather. The lobby was a nice area to hang out. We even watched football in the lobby. It was a quit stay. If I could change one thing it would be the vent in the bathroom was to loud.

This is a little bit out of where all the action is but the rooms were outstanding and the staff were awesome. I would highly recommend. Only 20 mins from Bourbon Street - if you have a car it is well worth it.

Thank you Maree all the way from New Zealand, WOW! We love our international guests so much we put up a "framily" map to keep track of everyone. I do hope you put a stick on New Zealand and If you didn't, I will do it for you.

I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and experience with us. Yes we're about 20 minutes from the action but as you said I think we are worth the drive!

We can't wait to see you next time!

We stayed here before our cruise because the rates were much better than those closer to the port, plus they allowed us to leave our vehicle parked there all week. We did have to pay a cab to and from the port both times, but this was still cheaper than parking at the port. This hotel was very clean; beds were comfortable and pillows were nice. The hotel desk staff was extremely pleasant. Breakfast was a big bonus as they had so much to choose from. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

Thanks you ltraveldou for providing such a wonderful review for our cruising guests. Although you are not the first "cruiser" to stay with us, I think that your honest review will be reviewed by many and maybe a determining factor on whether or not our future guests will stay with us, so thank you for that.

I'm delighted to hear that with 62 Trip Advisor contributions that your experience with us remained on the top of your list, I think it's safe to say you enjoyed your stay with us...and you’re Hot Breakfast on the Bayou.
I will say, sometimes we do struggle to keep up when it's busy but that's also because it's so popular and we are working harder on maintaining the flow of food when we are at full capacity. It is certainly an industry leading breakfast that none of our competitors offer and we're proud to have for our guests, we're glad you enjoyed it.

We can't wait to see you back for your next cruise out of the Port of New Orleans.

Thanks for being our guest,

Christopher

Great place. I bring my crew into town to work and we always stay here. Great staff and good rooms. I visited on pleasure this time and brought my wife. I've never, in 25 years, taken her to a place where I stay with the crew. it is that good. I can stay at the finest hotels in town, and I choose to stay here.

Towerdog3, you are our 2nd "Framily member" to come back and write us a follow up review. This is getting fun! I'm so sorry I missed you this trip I would have loved to meet your wife.

We always love it when your framily members bring their wives to meet their extended hotel framlies. We have to compare notes and make sure we get the details downright such as how many pillows you like on the bed, where to keep your shoes and things of that nature...just kidding but it does say a lot that you brought the misses to see us.

I do hope she enjoyed her stay with us as much as you do each and every time you're with us.

Thanks again Towerdog3 and I know we'll see you back in 2014!
