Budget motel within reasonable Uber distance
Posted Feb 16, 2017
Let me start my saying that this hotel is sort of what I expected for the (lower) budget I had. Two colleagues and myself had a conference at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center and with flights did not want to break the bank. We got a room with two beds (could have sworn when I booked it said two queen beds) but it was two double beds. Being the one not in the relation on the trip, I had one to myself but they were a little cramped.
When we first arrived the hotel staff were very nice and even let us check in an hour early. However, when we got to the room there was still a frozen drink from Fat Tuesdays and a cake box with a LARGE KITCHEN KNIFE in the fridge!!! I'm not even sure what else to say about that then then cleaners cleary didn't look or care.
The "hot continental breakfast" was honestly a joke. There is a hot breakfast that costs $8 but go somewhere else. The only free breakfast is toast and Frosted Flakes. You think I'm exaggerating but that was it. This hotel should not be able to say that there was free hot breakfast because they have a toaster.
The hotel staff was nice and an Uber to the convention center was $9. However, coming back they would get lost sometimes, but that's not the hotels fault.
Overall, again this was a budget hotel that I hoped had free breakfast and two queen beds in the room. Neither were true. It was not the most terrible place in the world to stay but I do not think I would stay here again. Spend the extra dollars for elsewhere.
