We spent 6 nights at the Super 8 while visiting New Orleans. We had stayed downtown near Bourbon St in the past but most places downtown have valet parking which you must pay extra for above the hotel rate. We wanted a place where we would have easy access to our car as we also planned on some day trips. Plus we didn't want to spend a fortune on hotel when it's really just a bed and a shower - most of our time is spent outside of the hotel.
The hotel was a great location with easy access to I-10. We did go downtown on several occasions and it was about a 10 minute drive. There are a few lots near Riverwalk that have an early bird special of $8.00 per day (in by 9am out after 2pm but before 8pm) so we drove rather than taking a cab.
The neighbourhood around the hotel is a little sketchy and doesn't offer much in the way of restaurants. That was a concern when booking the hotel but in the end it turned out to be a non-issue. They do have plenty of parking in the back and there is a security guard in the evenings.
The hotel itself is old but the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Our room had a fridge but no microwave. As we would be there for an extended period of time we asked for a micro which they brought to our room (at no charge) within a few minutes. WiFi in our room worked great.
The breakfast included cereal, waffles, honeybuns, bananas and beverages. Nothing fancy but it sufficed.
So for $55.00 a night it was great value while visiting New Orleans.
