The staff was very nice. The room was much smaller than it looked in online. We had to use a roll away bed and it was extremely uncomfortable. The mattress was old and had a bed bug in it. Woke up with bites all over. The rest of the facility was ok. It’s older. It was not a long walk to canal st to hop on the trolley. Perfect location if you don’t want to be too close to all the noise.

Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Hotel's good location. It's walking distance to the streetcar on Loyola Blvd. minutes away from Canal and Bourbon streets. It's also walking distance to the Mercedes-Benz Louisiana Superdome, the Amtrak Greyhound station, and Smoothie King arena. This hotel has a clean snack bar 24/7. Next time, me and my relatives will stay here.
