The website says all new and remodled hotel. We reserved 3 rooms. None of the 3 were remodled and 2 of the rooms had roaches, ants and bugs. The toilet seat was broken in one of them. I reported the broken seat and bug problems... NOTHING WAS DONE ABOUT EITHER COMPLAINT. As a matter of fact maintenance said they could NOT fix the toilet seat. My husband is handy and said the seat just needed to be replaced. When we checked out, the seat was still broken. When I reported the insects, I was told that is just New Orleans, you are gonna have bugs. I LOVE NEW ORLEANS .... and have visited over 30 times.... first time to have a roach IN THE BED! We arrived early and were allowed to check in. The front desk clerk was attempting to check in guest but was also training a new clerk. But no major issues with check in. The rooms are nice sized and well equipped. During COVID they are not cleaning the rooms and are short staffed. It was a struggle just to get towels. They are serving a limited hot breakfast and the lady serving the breakfast is a jewel in the eye of this sad, roach hotel. She is kind, friendly and seems to care about the comfort of the guest. There was a basketball team staying at the hotel, kids ran the halls, knocked on doors and ran, jumped up and down in the rooms making a ton of noise. They were allowed to run loose! No parent or management intervention. Some of the guest set up a grill in the parking lot. WTH!! It was an overall horrible stay. I ALWAYS stay Best Western but NEVER again at this location.

Hotel's Favourite
I've stayed here on and off over the past 15 years. Always a great place. Staff is nice, cocktails in the afternoons, they take my CLC card, and parking is good. One of the great things about this place is that it is safe and quiet. Sort of away from the action, you don't have to worry about your vehicles or family. Gas station and dollar store within walking distance. Excellent place for the working man, but when I bring my wife, I stay here too. Cant' go wrong with this place.

Hotel was better than the area would suggest. Clean rooms, clean lobby, clean parking lot, friendly staff, great hot breakfast system for a real FREE hot breakfast even with covid restrictions. I added a second night after seeing the quality of this hotel.

The staff and hotel were outstanding. Well organized, clean and staff would bend over backwards to help. Love the location, for food, shopping, seafood buying, easy on and off to downtown New Orleans and the French Quarter. Quiet and wonderful.
