“Great hotel, location not ideal for downtown New Orleans”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

I booked into this hotel my first night in New Orleans.

Be aware the shuttle from the airport does not go here. The furthest it goes is Broad Street, where you then have to take a bus.

Service at reception was excellent, and hotel looked really clean and up-market for the price.

The rooms were spacious, clean, with all the amenities you need including a fridge. Bathrooms are always a concern, but this was as clean as could be with plenty of towels.

Free breakfast was included, which had more than enough as far as choice and was a pleasant surprise compared to most hotel breakfasts.

The only concern was the location, which is about 30 minutes by bus to Canal Street. Can be a hassle if you forget something in the hotel like I did and have to trek back which costs you another hour.

I was told by some locals the area wasn't safe to stay and Chef Menteur Highway is a common hotspot for the prostitution trade, as I found out Tuesday morning at the hotel reception, where I was asked if I wanted a good time. I declined, which wasn't very hard considering the state of the tramps on offer.

I was also told this was a dangerous area for tourists if you're on your own, and it was best to seek accommodation closer downtown, especially if you're coming back the hotel late and taking the bus. This does however give you a chance to see the other parts of New Orleans you wouldn't normally see if you're staying downtown.

Other than location, top notch hotel for the price, but it's probably worth spending a bit extra and going for a place in the French Quarter (where my next hotel was).

I was pleasantly surprised: This Super 8 is more a hotel than a motel. A friendly greeting at the front desk, a nice lobby, covered and secured overnight parking, comfortable king room facing Chef Menteur Highway is quiet (other rooms face the interstate!), fridge w. freezer, microwave, clean throughout. Breakfast is the usual styrofoam fare with danish, toast, cereal, waffle maker, juice and coffee. Easy road connections, no decent restaurants around. Overall a good value for price paid.

Room Tip: the quieter rooms face Chef Monteur Highway, other rooms face noisier interstate

Wasn't at all happy with the looks of the surrounding area but parking was secure. Easy on and off the highway. Rooms were clean, bed was comfortable and the staff was excellent. The price was right and it included breakfast. Public transportation was near by, although we opted to take a taxi into the city. I would return to this location.
