We went to NO specifically to see a band at the Rock-N-Bowl, wanted to spend an extra day, but still on a budget. This motel is very clean and the staff super friendly and informative. It's out of the way of the French Quarter, but we found it really easy to get around on public transportation. Bus stop very close to motel and then Canal street streetcar to FQ. We did that the first day, walked all around the FQ, had dinner, drank, listened to music, drank, etc. Buses run late and we made it home easily. Safety-wise, we never really saw anyone around the motel, so never felt unsafe. Some may feel different not having any crowds around.
The next night we took a taxi to Rock-N-Bowl because weren't sure if the buses ran as late in that area. It was about a $15-20 round trip ride in a taxi. Well worth it not to drive.
The motel itself is clean, quiet, rooms were large, bathroom large, fridge and microwave in each room, coffee in the "bar" every morning. For the price and our purpose, we thought this was a great hotel.
