This place is pretty sleazy. The room was very musty and dirty. The bed had no blanket, just sheets with a few cigarette burns in them. Two wasted guys got into a yelling match in the middle of the night outside our door. The bathroom was fairly disgusting with not quite hot enough water. Cheap is cheap I guess, but...

Very friendly staff. The motel is old but clean. I felt safe and secure in this motel. I was traveling with my children and I had no concerns whatsoever. A short drive (less than 10 min) to the French Qtr. Parking was easy with our moving truck. Close to fast food and stores. I would recommend this to anyone who...

Booked at last minute and all hotels in French quarter were extremely expensive on Mardi Gras so was relieved to find this motel 6 which was reasonable value and only a ten to fifteen minute bus ride from downtown/ French quarter( bus stop short walk away). Usual type of motel 6 , clean and functional, no frills and towels very...

NO BLOWDRYER in a whole motel. You cannot get it even for extra money. Ended up buying a cheap blowdryer at the nearest Walmart. You can get an iron though (I am not sure if you have to pay for it). Clean sheets and towels (2 per customer per day). No shampoo, conditioner or lotion. 1 peace of soap per...

I think with places like this (motels) you get exactly what you pay for. It wasn't extravagant, but I felt safe and the place was as clean as it possible could be, despite the aged look of the place. It worked fine for a place to lay my head at night, but I wouldn't want to spend long amounts of...

Didn't end up staying because of a mistake I made in my reservation, but wanted to thank the desk clerk (Harry) for being very helpful and customer service oriented. Helped me cancel and keep my vacation on track

Not fancy, but great place to sleep. Great price, clean, and close to French Quarter 20 mins.or so easy access to I-10. Wood floors, great place if you have allergies. Coffee only in the morning, vending machines with snack foods. Close to Ihop & Waffle House.

This was a great value hotel. The staff was super friendly and helpful, they left a bag of towels on my door in the morning, without my asking, because I had a do not disturb sign on the door. The room was very clean and recently updated, but a bit sparse. The hallways were kind of dingy, and the parking...

Anyone who said this place was "Excellent", "Very Good" or even "Average", must have stayed here when it was new. By far, this is one of the seediest locations I've ever lain my head. There were mattresses leaned against the walls around every corner we turned -including the lobby. The only picture posted for the property that is even remotely...
