Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The gal at the front desk helped us find a place for fiber and gave us great feedback. Checkout was smooth and easy, as well. Great place all around. I would stay again if in the area!

If you own electric car and look for a fast charger, this may be the best hotel in New Orleans. Best Western Bayou Inn also offers breakfast and free parking with good price. Although it is not located in a major attraction area, it is not too far to drive there. Service is excellent. The bed is comfy with very...

I always stay at Best Western Bayou for the convenient location and friendly service. The free breakfast was great and the lady attending the breakfast area was nice and kept everything well stocked and fresh.

It was fine, nothing to write home about. Checkin was friendly and quick, and the room was the level you expect from a Best Western. Our smoke detector went off in the middle of the night, so we ended up setting it on the front desk at 4am. There was no one there at the time, and when we brought...

Thank you for all the kind things you had to say about the hotel and please bear in mind that you did visit during a major city wide event.

The hotel room was clean and cozy. The staff at the front desk were great! I wouldn't stay here again though. There is a gas station next door. We listened to loud radios, doors slamming all night. It was terrible. If you go just ask to be on the other side of the hotel. Nice other wise

We are sorry that your stay with us was less than perfect, it is not usually like that but you came during Mardi Gar and people are up late celebrating. I also want to thank your for the kind words about the hotel and the staff.

The Worst hotel experience that I have had in more than a decade. Absolutely terrible. The breakfast lobby area was so overcrowded with Asian and oriental guests that consumed every piece of food, filled there bags and boxes with everything the server brought out to refill the empty food trays that it would have been funny except that it was...

Clean room, nice breakfast, comfortable bed. We stayed on a Friday night after visiting New Orleans for a few days. They have a large parking lot, and the hotel is easy to locate. Our biggest challenge was figuring out how to exit the parking lot and navigate the highway to return toward town.

Overall, an excellent deal! Location: Less than half the price of downtown hotels and only 20 minutes away from all attractions. There's not much in the immediate local area, but fast food chains and strip malls. 15 minutes to zoo and outlet river mall in good traffic. Clean rooms but carpet needs to be updated. We had 2 queen beds...
