"Worst Western" may be a more apt tag for this place. We checked in on a Saturday. The clerk never smiled & never gave an obligatory "welcome". Our first clue of a problem should have been the customer who jumped in front of us to complain about a toilet overflowing in their room. (just hope his room was not above where we would be!!!!)
The lobby was nice but the two elevators were slow & in desperate need of remodeling. Our room & bathroom needed remodeling as well. The tiny window (hurricane proof??) had mold around the edges. The closet had a musty odor but the room had ample air fresheners in place.
Later we wanted to visit the restaurant (there is a huge sign out front advertising it). The clerk said there was not one and that the sign was old. No apologies, no smiles- just a matter of fact kind of take it or leave it attitude.
Breakfast as it turns out was a continental breakfast that included instant coffee and packaged grits. There were some fruit that appeared to be in good shape and some pastries that looked a bit old.
Yikes!! We had been unable to reserve rooms at other places due to a festival in the French Quarter. At $136 per night plus a tax of about 12% you would think that the quality would be better.
This place has escaped the inspectors of the Best Western system (assuming that Best Western has some sort of enforcement of standards).
