After reading many hotel reviews we decided on the Best Western Bayou where we recently stayed for 3 nights. We were warmly greeted by AJ who proved to be a gem for information and service. We chose a room on the 2nd floor for more quiet and David the security guy helped us with our luggage. Our room was very...

The staff at this hotel is the BEST. Helpful, friendly and doing their best to make our stay great. They all were so kind and doing far more than required to be good employees.

This hotel was clean inside and out, and had an average complimentary breakfast. We did have a couple of issues the two days that we stayed here. First the AC control knob was broke which met that the unit either had to run on high all night or be turned off. We addressed the problem after our first night and...

great breakfast over 3 days, with variety. Had eggs, sausage, bacon, waffles, grits, sausage gravy, biscuits, fruit, yogurt, cereal, etc. Bed was comfy, shower was great. About 1/2 hour from New Orleans and 90 minutes from Swamp tours, Free parking that is hard to get in New Orleans.

We took a quick family trip to the NOLA zoo and aquarium. We were shocked by the prices of most hotels in the New Orleans area. We found this hotel, which was just outside the city and decided to take the risk in order to save some $$. It was perfect for us. Not too far from the attractions. The...

We decided to stay a little outside the city, only 15-20 min away. Not in the middle of the craziness and traffic and got free breakfast and parking. A bonus, they have free drinks during the week between 5-8. I would definitely stay here again.

We didn't want to pay the inflated prices of the hotels closer to downtown NOLA so we chose this place. The drive downtown was short and easy.
