“stay away from here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

i could not...this was the only hotel i could find in the area at such a short notice because of the hurricane...the hotel itself has some bad reviews about its area and clientele but that was certainly not the issue i found...the problem is the staff...i arrived at 4:15pm and waited for a half hour for someone to show up at the desk...not a soul to be found...i left to make a briefing that was scheduled for my work...when i returned at 7:15pm i was told my room wasn't ready and i'd have to wait till they found one...forty minutes later i was put into a room...the interior was fine...not the flea bag that other reviews listed it to be...by 10:30pm i was in my bed and just about falling asleep when my door was pushed open by the inept staff...i had the bar across the door so when they pushed it open the force was so strong that it sounded like the room was being broken into...the manager yells into the cracked door "who's in this room"...scares the living hell out of me...door being forced open at 10:45pm...the manager tells me he was 100% sure there was no one in the room...great customer service there...i'm 100% sure that he's an moron...even if i were positive the room was empty i'd have still knocked once just to be sure...but no, this idiot doesn't think to do that...just tries to bust into the room...if i hadn't paid up front with a web site i would have left right then but i knew there would be no way to get a refund...the manager on duty did not apologize...he just acted like he was in the right to open a door without knocking first because his computer showed the room to be empty...didn't bother to check with the paper work on his desk left by the other front desk worker...my advice is find a different place to stay because i'm pretty sure they don't learn from their mistakes by the looks of all the negative reviews of this place...i wish i had read a few before i pushed that button to book...the manager tried to blow off all the bad reviews by saying people who enjoy their stays at hotels don't bother to write good reviews...what a crock...learn to treat your customers right and maybe you'd get some good reviews...

The staff was extremely helpful and willing to go the extra mile when it comes to their guest. The breakfast was freshly made and it tasted so good. I would not change 1 thing about this hotel it was really a nice place to stay. Really close to Bourbon and the Superdome. Staff are the friendlist.

This Quality Inn was ok, but it looked like it was situated in a rather dodgy (unsafe) area. We used it because we had a dog, and a lot of the other hotels charge a substantial premium for a dog in a hotel e.g. $25 per night plus a $100 non-refundable cleaning fee. If I hadn't already booked it online, I would have gone to a better quality inn and location.

Room Tip: I don't think there is a tip. I always ask for a room in a quiet location.

The MOTEL was not a nice place to stay at all!!...First I received an E Mail about four days before my trip stating that it was to late to cancel my reservation. I thought most HOTELS give you at least forty eight hours prior and up to four pm the day of the reservation. Nooooo not this place. Come to find, I was actually charged the full amount of the room charge the day I received that E-Mail. Seems deceitful and underhanded to me. No where did I ready you will be charged before you even arrive?!?!.....Secondly, ALL of the horrible reviews said about this place "IT'S TRUE!!!!!!" This MOTEL was off the beaten path, the carpet was dirty, water bugs in the bathroom, lighting in the room was horrible, people hanging out on the balcony, people screaming obscenities all times of the day, loud music, pool dirty (no one swam) B-B-Q pits in front of doors (like they rent rooms by the week or month?!?! etc. DO NOT STAY HERE. I grew up in a semi ruff neighborhood and I felt unsafe at this MOTEL.

Room Tip: Check the reviews first.....

CTIA show in town and every hotel is full. Found this hotel on Priceline at a decent price. The hotel is not in a great location but even though my rating is low they seems to be really trying HARD. The lady on the night desk is the savior of the place. She is professional and has the ability to multitask guests' issues.

I would not stay there again but it we all know that New Orleans had a horrible disaster katrina, and I can feel that this hotel is working hard to provide good accommodations to visitors.

The carpet was filthy. The room smelled and we woke up in the morning to find 3 dead and 1 live cockroaches. Don't believe the fake excellent reviews you will find below. Not what you would expect from well known chain hotel.

I got this hotel last minute at $150 per night bc our family decided to do mardi GRAS last minute. We couldn't find any other place nearby bc everything was sold out.
Let me tell you how scared I was staying there!!! I had kids with me. First of all the rooms are so dim (probably so you won't see the dirt) and it smelled so bad. I don't know what the smell is but it was awful. The hotel is in an isolated area where the entrance is small dark road. Ugh!
Well I decided to suck it up but guess what? @1am there is a car who pulled up in the parking lot. Music is so loud! Banging and banging for more than an hour. I was really scared. Next thing I hear two doors down and woman yelling "@&$&..ing " words! Can you believe that? Worst part about it was nobody did anything! Management obviously didnt do a darn thing! Terrible! Ugh! Next morning I saw three ladies of the night at breakfast. You are kidding me right?! I had kids around.
Stay clear of this place unless you are planning on getting drugs and hookers... Awful management! Who ever gave this place a good review must be the manager himself and lying to you all.
