NO BLOWDRYER in a whole motel. You cannot get it even for extra money. Ended up buying a cheap blowdryer at the nearest Walmart. You can get an iron though (I am not sure if you have to pay for it). Clean sheets and towels (2 per customer per day). No shampoo, conditioner or lotion. 1 peace of soap per...

I think with places like this (motels) you get exactly what you pay for. It wasn't extravagant, but I felt safe and the place was as clean as it possible could be, despite the aged look of the place. It worked fine for a place to lay my head at night, but I wouldn't want to spend long amounts of...

Didn't end up staying because of a mistake I made in my reservation, but wanted to thank the desk clerk (Harry) for being very helpful and customer service oriented. Helped me cancel and keep my vacation on track

Not fancy, but great place to sleep. Great price, clean, and close to French Quarter 20 mins.or so easy access to I-10. Wood floors, great place if you have allergies. Coffee only in the morning, vending machines with snack foods. Close to Ihop & Waffle House.

This was a great value hotel. The staff was super friendly and helpful, they left a bag of towels on my door in the morning, without my asking, because I had a do not disturb sign on the door. The room was very clean and recently updated, but a bit sparse. The hallways were kind of dingy, and the parking...

Anyone who said this place was "Excellent", "Very Good" or even "Average", must have stayed here when it was new. By far, this is one of the seediest locations I've ever lain my head. There were mattresses leaned against the walls around every corner we turned -including the lobby. The only picture posted for the property that is even remotely...

Although this motel is not one of the fancier ones in nola the room was clean and the people were more than helpful it was not all that near to bourbon st the bus route was close by and the shopping area was great many places to eat and even a Wal-Mart close by

The room was very big with plenty of empty space. No dresser or stands to lay your things on. There was only one chair with half a table and no carpet in this room. There was a nice hard wood floor which is probably alot easier to clean, but not comfortable on tired feet. The price was a little higher...

The motel 6 was clean. The beds were comfortable, but don't look for amenities. There are none. Almost no drawer space, but a small place to hang some things. It was a good size room. Although there was free internet, it is very hard to connect to. Spend a few bucks more, and go to a classier joint.

My first impression of the place was pretty bad and did not really improve during the stay. Our group had a reservation for 3 rooms but they were unable to find it. The place looks like something out of The Shining, long hallways of dingy paint and suspiciously sticky red carpeting. Two of the rooms were fine, though oddly cavernous...
