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...

We travelled 9 hours and were ready to just get to the hotel and relax. They were very helpful, the room we reserved was not cleaned yet (not their fault, we were early). My husband forgot to ask for a ground floor room, I use a cane to walk). They did not hesitate to offered us a different room which...

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...

Overall, this is a very good hotel that we have visited before. We again enjoyed our stay. The only thing that was different this time is that we requested an upstairs room and were informed that there was no elevator available. We still took the upper room for the benefit of not hearing anyone walking above us, but having to...

We checked in and were immediately greeted by friendly faces! Upon entering our room, we found it to be very clean and it was kept clean throughout our week stay.

Bad points; If you are here for the city, pay 50bucks more and go to a BW on the north side of the river within walking distance of the French quarter etc. We went out looking for local food and sadly it's a low end area too, with only fast food and a low end seafood place close. It is...

We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay but the Best Western Bayou Inn is certainly not a motel is a nice hotel. True with rush hour traffic it can take 30 minutes to get to the quarter but usually it only 10 to 15 minutes and you don't have to pay 35 to 55 dollars a night just...
