  • Lowest in the downtown area that is safe and good, the place is just horrible, the staff has superb customer service skills, is a huge plus for the Empress. The bed is the worst.

  • The site looked good as did the discription, hotel staff were attentive and the lady at the front desk was very nice. The room was modest and adequate for my needs.

  • The location was great, just a short walk to the French quarter and the staff were very nice, hotel stuff was very friendly, the room and the bathroom were dirty.

    Obviously this place has alot of bad reviews and the shower would clog up during showers.

    This hotel was extremely dirty and in a very bad side of town, the bathroom floor was soft underfoot.

  • The area is not well lit and place is just run down from lack of neglect. The prices are great, the staff has superb customer service skills, is a huge plus for the Empress and the bathroom could use a good scrubbing.

    The hotel room was small and dirty, the bed was uncomfortable.

  • Verry good location, great Place and the girl at the reception was nice and polite. The rooms were clean.

    The hotel definitely looked better in pictures than in real life, dirty falling buildings and not anywhere worth the money. Most unfriendly service ever, the uncomfortable bed and towels were threadbare and stained.

  • Helpful in all areas and great Economy Hotel. Price was cheap and staff were friendly. The room was quiet.

    In a very bad location and this place reminds me of a flop house for the mentally ill and dangerous. Windows are rusted etc.

  • Best price for the location and worse hotel ever. Other guest houses and reasonable rates. The staff were friendly and shower was hot.

    This place was ridiculous and the rooms were small. Mattress and pillows had protective vinyl covers, the towels were dirty and had a odor.
