It's an EconoLodge . . . I have stayed at lots of them, and this one is about what is expected. The best selling point is ease of access to the French Quarter, particularly when you return from the Quarter--when ease for driving is the most necessary. Head north on Esplanade, turn right at the I-10 and take the service...

Stayed here for a 5 night stay to visit New Orleans and an event. Nothing fancy or top-notch here but decent. Stayed in room 200 which is a pretty good sized room with a single king size bed. Bedding is adequate and amenities are the same. I was solo for the trip so nothing extravagant needed, but if I'd have...

I've traveled a bit, and let me tell you, this hotel is pretty decent. It's not top of the line, but the room I stayed in (#110) was clean, not worn out, the carpets and bathroom were in good shape, and the king-size mattress was comfortably firm. There were little fridge and microwave - very convenient! And even nice little...

Okay, I understand some of my fellow travelers want to save a buck. I will also concede that we didn't pay to stay here, my daughters dad used points for our room so I have no idea how much it costs BUT it can not be much less than $99 and I found a great hotel on hotels.com for $99...

TRAINS, TRAFFIC AND SHIPS. Not a quiet place but the noise from the A/C drowned out everything but the ships honking to go through the nearby drawbridge and the locomotives honking for whatever reason. I was more disturbed by what seemed like a herd of horses in the room above me. It was kids and they were "stomping" on the...

I stayed here for a class I was taking in the area. The price was right but no way would I stay here again. The hotel is old and it's obvious very little has been done to modernize it. It's also in a VERY bad area. The staff was indifferent at best. I don't recommend this hotel at all.

Stay away. This place is a dirty, grubby dump in a dangerous neighbourhood. The front desk tried to overcharge me for the two night stay even though I presented the receptionist, a "Mr. Patel" with my confirmation and price quote. It was only when I contacted the booking agency that "Mr. Patel" backed off and issued me a refund.

The check in was fast & easy! The room was very clean & all amenities were present & working! Some reviews stated it was the "bad" side of town. We were two women traveling alone & not once did I feel threatened or afraid & everyone was very kind. The location was great! Maybe a 10 min drive to the...

It's an Econo Lodge so by name it's a discount motel. It was well suitable for what I needed and that's sleep. It's right off the interstate. I felt safe and secure. The place seemed very well maintained and cleaner, spacious than a much nicer pricier hotel we had stayed at the previous night. Sure it was 5 miles from...

The first room they checked us in to no lie had dog crap on the floor in one corner. When I called the front desk they switched our rooms. We were then staying next to a room if three to four prostitutes and their pimp. They were courteous though and quiet. I did hear them leave about 1:30 at night...
