    The location was great, just a short walk to the French Quarter and the staff were very nice.

    The hotel definitely looked better in pictures than in real life. We knew it was a cheap hotel going in, but weren't prepared for how cheap it was going to be. Mattress and pillows had protective vinyl covers, for example.

    Good

    Staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel was near French Quarter and in walking distance to Jazz Festival. It was in a "real" residential neighborhood.

    The room was pretty shabby with lots of home made repairs, no closet, etc.

    This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The price should be $20 or free a night. Horrible, horrible, horrible. When we were walking in someone was canceling their reservation, which should of been sign #1. Then as soon as we saw the room with spackle all over the walls, cracking tub, rock hard cardboard bed, lenolium floors, burnt carpet, smoke smelling...we tried to cancel. Booked.net would allow us, but the owner would not. I would never recommend this room to anyone. My husband and I are extremely easy going people and I was scared to touch the bed. Booked.net should take this off of their website. The taxi driver told us that this hotel is used for call girls bringing men to at night for a cheap place to stay. He said the hotel normally cost $35 a night and was shocked we were paying anything more for the quality. Do not stay in this hotel. You will be scared!

    It was clean as you could make it and price was cheap

    No place to put anything no hook to even hang clothes on no desk no table nothing no closet not one thing to set anything for the very budget minded

    Not a thing

    All you get literally is a bed, tv, chair, night table, (no lamp), sink, toilet and tub. No place to hang clothes or counter to place toiletries. Old run down property that has broken fixtures, tiles and walls with a entry door that does not lock tightly. And bug bait traps around the bed.

    Good

    Less expensive. Staff were polite and helpful. This was a good place to leave your stuff and tour the city. A step up from a hostel.

    Room was sparse and depressing. Towels were threadbare and stained. They check the rooms before refunding a ten dollar deposit which is silly. There is nothing there worth stealing and if I had left a body, I would not have waited for my 10 bucks. Someday someone will upgrade the rooms and turn this place into a quint B & B. Of course, the price will then double.
