“Good things and bad things.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

The rooms were larger than expected and the hotel itself has a bit of a nostalgic feel to it. Rooms were clean. Walls weren't paper thin, but you could hear footsteps or thumping from time to time from rooms above you if on the second floor. Most of the room doors face inside to a semi open area. This means the a/c units blow hot air into this same area and the corridor becomes EXTREMELY hot. Price was very reasonable for the room and I never felt uncomfortable at the hotel itself. However, with that being said, the location of the hotel did not appear to be the safest neighborhood. I didn't notice many types of stores or conveniences in the area and even if I did, I wasn't planning on going to any of them. Not in the daytime and certainly not after dark. Location is only about 15 minutes from downtown New Orleans and the French Quarter, but being in a safer location definitely would have been a relief.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the pool are quieter.

Super 8 at New Orleans the best room are at the front of the hotel. I can believe they have nice clean rooms and serving breakfast. I like this small hotel because everything is close to it and freeway access to anywhere. going to the French Quarter take 10 minutes and you can drive to Cajun encounters less than 20 minutes taking highway 90 that is Chef Menteur. my stay at the hotel was great friendly people and great service. Parking is ok but suggest to park close to the front they also have security at night. I will said they are the most clean place I see so far from New Orleans small Hotel and I give them A plus to stay.

Room Tip: The best Room are at the front of the lobby 1rst , 2nd and 3rd floor. they have elevators access an...

We spent four nights here for a convention. The drive to the New Orleans Convention Center from here was not bad at all and we were able to save a lot of money. This hotel is older, but the service makes the difference. The front desk staff is excellent. One lady took time to draw out on a map how to get to a particular location. The rooms were cleaned well each day and we felt confident that any issue we might have would be resolved. It is evident that the management placed a priority on customer service. We enjoyed our stay here very much. I would recommend this to others who are looking for a great value.

Cathy Smith, did a great job of cleaning the room while my son and I stayed at Super 8 in New Orleans. She was also very courteous and professional. Employees like Ms. Smith make a hotel guest's stay a more pleasant experience.

We stayed two nights and although this property seemed to be in a dodgy area it wasn't an issue. From our perspective hotel security was good and the area seemed more abandoned than anything. That said the hotel staff were really friendly and efficient, the room clean, bed comfy and the price is good, especially being handy to town. Not much in the way of eateries close by though.

We drove in and the neighborhood did not look welcoming so we were apprehensive about staying. We went in and got greeted very warmly and professionally by the front desk person, so based on that we asked to see the accommodations before registering. The room was on the 2nd floor right off the elevator and was clean. The furnishings we very basic but for the great rate we had our expectation was simply a clean quiet safe room and we got that PLUS great service from all of the staff there. They have a 24 hour guard on duty that patrols the premises like a hawk. Be not affraid! It's also right off of I10 and across the street from the metro bus that takes you to a street car that takes you into downtown New Orleans. We had a great, great 3 night stay.
