Everything was satisfactory Parking was a little tough at night. Really busy
Clean but location is a bit shady. My kids exclamated that they say real life prostitutes. There was a graffiti abandoned building next to hotel. Motel 8 does have a gated entrance and security.
The room was very clean & comfortable. The staff was extremely courteous & the housekeeping was very attentive. I will absolutely stay here when I visit in the future. The location was perfect-- just 5 minutes from the French Quarter-- & it was great for rest as there were no obnoxiously loud people partying. The parking is gated & they have a person at night watching the parking lot. I have no complaints!
Wow, this hotel was terrible. I arrived at night time and had to stand out in the cold to sign the room paperwork. First time having to do this for a hotel. Must be a sign of how shady the area is. The hallway carpet was very stained and gave off a dingy smell. The room seemed clean and had fake wood floors (definitely a plus over stained grimy carpet) but the desk chair had some scary stains. I had to move a low table over to sit on to work on my laptop. The bed didn't seem too bad until I woke up in the morning with my face planted in a spot that was very nasty smelling. I moved to another motel after this horrible experience.
Friendly and attentive staff and a great value. Too far from the quarter and in a sketchy part of the city.
- only 10 minutes by car from French quarter - bus station near (30 minutes to French Quarter) - the boss/owner was extremely unfriendly (there were like 5-6 situations where he just snapped at us "Maaaaam my office is closed!" or "Maaaam this isnt a 24h reservation" etc. really extremely unfriendly, and we really didn't ask for anything special. (he was friendly to our male friends though so you might be fine if you're a guy ..) - Breakfast: Coffee (coffee only isn't breakfast, although it said online that breakfast was included) - apparently in a bad area (taxi driver said so), I wouldn't walk around when it's dark - for those with a car it's ok I guess but wouldn't stay more than 1-2 days it's really not a nice hotel
We liked everything except the shaking of the elevator, kids was a little scared Everything was ok
