“Nice rooms!”
Reviewed February 20, 2011

The room I was in has all new furniture...even the bathtub is so new, it still has the sticker on it! The only thing I can say that's not positive, they do not provide a little bottle of shampoo. I had to go across the street to the Walgreens and buy some.

We just finished a trip of 8,200 miles around the US with family of two adults and two dogs, one dog weighs in at 90 lbs and the other 18 lbs. We had no problems with finding any pet friendly hotels the entire trip and we didn't have one reservation in advance. One surprise was the last two hotels were Motel 6's. They were new and very, very clean, new in every detail. The front desk staff was very accommodating and pets were being walked down the halls, and the parking lots. No odors, the rooms were surprising large with modern updates. One day, I will write about traveling with our dogs, We had so much fun and we did all of this in a Prius. We came home and bought a RoadTek that weekend, we can't wait for our next adventure!!!

I am not sure who wrote the other two reviews, maybe the owers. The room was nasty the tub had orange streaks all over it. the sink had not been cleaned in who knows how long. The bed was hard as a rock. I know this is a very cheap hotel but we have stayed in motel 6's before and this was by far the worst. The loction is very bad to say the least. It was not safe to walk to your car past ten. They also had hookers in the parking lot. We drove to get something to eat at rallys down the road so we could hurry to the room and lock ourself in while in the drive through at rallys there were bulldogs roaming aroung and people sitting everywhere in lawn chairs at the burger king parking lot. All I can say is I am glad we made it out alive.

At Motel6 New Orleans, we strive to offer guest a Clean, Comfortable and Affordable lodging experience. One of biggest attractions to our guests is our location as we are located right off I-10 Exit 239 , only about 4 miles from downtown New Orleans. We have customers who repeatedly stay with us and compliment us on the cleanliness and comfort. We believe in listening to our customer and appreciate reviews from our customers. So, far we feel successful in keeping our customers happy and keeping them returning back to our hotel. . It is to our regret to find even a single unhappy customer. - Management Motel 6 New Orleans.

The first thing we noticed when walking into the room was that it was pretty spacious. Also, the "king" sized bed was 2 twins pushed together. Not a big deal, as the bed was fairly comfortable. The bad thing about this hotel was that it seemed to be minimally cleaned. There was some pink goo on the bathroom counter, pubes in the bathroom floor, the carpet seemed to be hardly vacuumed, and there were what I assumed to be make-up stains on the linens and dried snot on one of the pillow cases. Thankfully there were 4 pillows on the bed. There was no tv remote when we got there... and our room was on the side of the motel adjacent to what seemed to be an abandoned hotel.
We stayed 3 nights and we got no cleaning or clean linens, and the towels could hardly be considered towels. The hallway smelled a bit like pot and there was a stick of burned incense on the bedside lamp. I tried not to expect too much from such a cheap place, but I would have liked it to be cleaner. Other than those things.. the shower was ok with good water pressure, the building wasn't too old looking and fairly well-lit and even though the motel wasn't in the nicest part of town I didn't really feel like I was in danger. The staff wasn't unpleasant and we received a remote without difficulty at the front desk. Also, the high-speed internet worked well.

The motel is only a few minute drive down the interstate from the french quarter, but like I said it... it wasn't in a very nice area of town. I would have definitely preferred something closer to the french quarter had everything not been booked up. But... if you aren't a stickler for clean and you're on a budget, it's not the worst place.

We were a little hesitant before we got to the room because it was so inexpensive, but was greatly impressed by the service and clean rooms. Not only were they clean smelling but the bedding was fresh and clean as well. We will definetly stay here again and recommend it to others as well. Thanks to all the staff for making our stay pleasant!
