We stayed here in October. The staff was very nice and friendly. The rooms were clean. Nice comfortable beds. Very good breakfast and they have a happy hour with free beer! I enjoyed my stay. I highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is out in the middle of nowhere. At least that is how it felt after spending so much time in the French Quarter. I thought for sure we would not end up at our hotel after the doorman at another hotel along with our cab driver gave us concerning looks about heading to Westwego. Once we got the...

Thank you fro your thoughts. Westwego is a quiet area. Some folks enjoy it --others are looking for more activity. However when next you are in NOLA--please let us know--we have great sister properties that we can suggest that may be more to your tastes. I must thank you however for bringing to my attention the bathtub in your room....

Hotel out of the way for downtown and airport but so clean and comfy and friendly that it is worth the drive. Not many food choices nearby but enough, including seafood, to choose this well run property.

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for two nights while we were on a random road trip to sight see in New Orleans. The hotel was really clean and the breakfast was awesome. We had very little interaction with the staff but they were always pleasant when we spoke with them. We were really happy with our stay...

I was shocked at how nice this facility was. Very pleased. Highly recommend. Not located right in the heart of New Orleans but incredibly fast travel times, not as bad as it might seem. The facility felt safe as well.

This is a nice, clean, well kept hotel, our room had a large hottub bathtub in the room which was great after a long day on the motorcycle. The front desk staff are very helpful. Breakfast is great. The only thing that would make it better is if there were restaurants closer.

The room was clean and quaint. The decor was very festive and thematic with New Orleans Mardi Gras. The location was a little farther out from the French Quarter and tourist areas, but it was worth the 15-minute drive. The breakfast was surprisingly delicious, especially the grits!

Disappointed. Made the reservation in the morning. Showed up after a long day of travel to discover there was no room reserved for us. Car full of sad kids and unhappy parents driving around late at night only to be charged full price at a hotel with fewer amenities. Won't use again!!!
