Terrible. Will NEVER stay there again. The room was not at all what was advertised. Our room had a broken ceiling fan, non-functional TV remote, outlet and light switches loose and falling off the wall, no toilet paper holder, no blanket on the bed, no soap nor soap dish, dirty shower, smoke detector removed and in a drawer, code to the security door stopped working after first night … the list goes on and on. It was noisy at night, and there were homeless people with a dog in the courtyard right outside our door the last night. The courtyard was supposed to be secure but we woke up to a barking dog outside our room. We couldn’t wait to leave. With the right management this could be a really cute place. Very sad.

Close to everything and very safe

A really nice motel that was inexpensive and close to all the action. I would recommend!

It was filthy I had to change rooms 3 times I stayed here about 10 years ago and it has gone downhill since then let’s hope this is rock bottom, nowhere else to go but up.

Great place love it here. Friendly people and the rooms are very nice

The location of the property was within walking distance to shops and main attractions. Grocery store across street was a huge plus. The facility was not what we expected, however it worked for us. We traveled in a group of nine and were able to rent two huge rooms right beside each other. The place could use some updates that is for sure. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful building, nice staff and excellent breakfast! Highly recommended.

We checked in late and the front desk clerk was so nice. There was a technical issue with the first room, she came back to the room walked us to another room AND made sure that everything worked before bidding us a good night. After a good nights rest, the morning clerk was also very nice, she even gave us eatery recommendations. Thanks ladies for making our stay, although short extremely pleasant!

This hotel is what it is. I feel the reviews that I read prior to selecting this facility were forthcoming, for the most part, except for one key detail on which I am about to expound. The walls in this place are SUPER THIN. I went to New Orleans to hang out and sleep in. Because it was my vacation, I really wanted to sleep until at least 8/9am, and get up and go for my morning run before it got too hot. The first night, our neighbors kept their television BLASTING all night only. There's no staff on the premises at night so we had no way to request them to intervene. (The desk attendant did go to these guests the next day to ask them to turn down the television, and they did.) And for the remaining of our time here, we were awakened at the crack of dawn by the cleaning staff as they yelled to each other from one end of the courtyard to the other. Each and every morning. Before 7am. I was EXHAUSTED because of a lack of sleep by the time I checked out. So yes, please read all the reviews. But if you want to pay your hard earned vacation money for some REST, this is not the place for you.

Amazing, magical...we will never forget it. Glinda was so kind and helpful and made our trip perfect! This hotel has a magical quality that only be experienced. The building is old, so don't expect the Hilton, but do expect New Orleans with perfect personality nestled in the French Quarter. The BEST!

Great place to settle into, with a quiet but accessible location, with a real feel of New Orleans.

old charming hotel near french quarter. good breakfast.

Awesome little hidden gem of a hotel. Not far from downtown either. I will definitely stay again next time I'm in town.

Nice and quiet hotel. It was less than a 10min walk to Frenchmen St. and 20min walk to Bourban St.

We were disappointed driving up as this place looked pretty sketchy. It turned out to be just fine. Staff was outstanding, very friendly and helpful. The desk attendant helped with my daughter who was feeling quite ill upon arrival; turns out he is also an EMT. Rooms are all different, most are on a locked gated courtyard (where continental breakfast is served), but ours had a separate entrance onto the street. This hotel suited us very well for a quick visit to NOLA the weekend before Mardi Gras. There was noise at all hours from the street with all of the celebration going on...random people walking by talking and singing, people riding bikes, even a random trumpeter at 3am, but it was all part of Mardi Gras and lots of fun. If you are not into frills, can tolerate a little character and are OK with being right in the heart of a real legit New Orleans neighborhood you will do just fine here. I would stay here again.

Stayed here before, this room not as nice as the other. This room needs updating, bathroom in need of updating, very dingy and rundown compared to other room at hotel. Hot water and water pressure very lacking in this room compared to other.

Good shower, good water pressure, nice continental breakfast. Comfortable room, clean, pleasing.

We needed to crash for a night and this hotel was perfect. Interacted with multiple staff and they were all great! Bed was very clean and comfortable. Will be back!

We had our flight arrive late. The check in office was closed for the night. They went above and beyond to make sure we were able to get into our room that night. They all had amazing customer service!!!!
