“Smoke free” yet is smelled like nothing but weed and cigarettes in the hall and room. Rust everywhere, bath mat had a nasty yellow stain, toilet leaking, mildew in shower and on restroom floor due to toilet, nasty brown spots in the shower. No shampoo or anything other than a small bar soap. Towels that were actually clean were paper thin and super rough. I have stayed at Motel 6s before so it’s not that I expected a 5 star motel but this wasn’t even 2 stars. 1 at best and only because the bed was made nicely and there were no visible stains on the sheets. The parking lot is very sketchy. DO NOT STAY FOR MORE THAN A NIGHT AND DO NOT BRING YOUR CHILDREN.

I liked that the rooms where cleaned and had a nice smell. The cable wasnt working at first and they fixed it right away. However it bothered me that only one door worked to get into the hotel without having to go through front desk entrance. There was a window that had been knocked out and covered with plastic towards the end of the hall. The great thing about it was the location to walmart and fast food eats. Being that Im bot from that area was a big help when you are taking a trip with kids

The front desk guy kept asking all of us for cigarettes,What I found very scary is we let our friend take our room key while we went back to hotel I asked the Front desk for another key when we got back the front desk never asked for ID he just made a key and handed it to us. Our bed linens smelled like dirty feet it was disgusting. I did like that there wasn’t any carpet in the rooms. The bathroom tub was disgusting and the spout and handle was very loose. There was a roach in the bathroom. The room served a purpose for us a place to stay while Nola but was very disappointing.

Workers are very nosy, and the old man will follow you around and stand outside your door if you’re the night owl type. You don’t even have to be doing anything wrong.

Only 1 soda machine in the whole building and it sold out our 2nd day there also for $110.00 a night you would think they could offer breakfast but unfortunately they don't. Finally the best part of it all was the federal agents that snatched my friend up searched him and accused him of being a sex trafficker and forced him to show them our room with out a warrant or any notification from staff or local police or anything they just came right in and had their look around but thats not the end yet again a couple hours later there was another knock on our door claiming to be maintenance needing to check our A/C which was clearly nit the case he was followed by another man who u believe was ine of the agents that harrassed us that morning. Not sure what they were trying to find but since we were actually there just to visit the house of blues for a weekend long concert and nothing else thats what we continued to do as we had planned but we had to endure several strange, unusual, and irritating things while there besides that the location is convenient but don't expect to find any breakfast or working girls and bring your own drinks

general apologhy.

4 out of 5

Comfortable & convenient

This is a no frills motel, a short cab ride / drive to French Quarter and fine dining. It served its purpose, had refrigerator and air conditioning, and comfortable beds. We stayed on the second floor, and it was quiet. They serve coffee in the mornings, and the staff were all friendly & courteous. Should I visit New Orleans again in the future, I intend to stay here a second time. I have stayed in other Motel 6 locations, and this one was better than some of the others. I would recommend this motel highly to anyone wanting to visit NOLA and not pay inflated room costs of a downtown hotel. I just cannot say enough about how wonderful the staff were.

thanks guest for talking to write a review of their stay.

Minimal Hotel

Pros: The price.
Cons: I think a lot can be improved, but it is a hotel in NOLA... i don't know if they would want to improve it greatly just to have drunk people destroy it
Location: The location is a bit shady. I wouldn't go out walking around after dusk. But there are fast food chains RIGHT there. That was nice.
This hotel was pretty much what I expected for the price. It was a minimalist hotel. Little furniture, light, comforts. The beds left something to be desired and there was an odd smell in the hallways. BUT it was a good price for my budget. So despite all these things, it was a place to stay for a reasonable cost.
