Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MsCherilyn Great value and Good location!!!
I was looking for a place to stay near the airport that was clean and affordable. Now cleanliness is my biggest issue when finding a hotel, so I actually visited about five hotels and looked inside the rooms and facilities before deciding where to stay. This hotel had the best cleanliness, the best breakfast area and the best pool. When you first walk in, it's beautiful! The people were very pleasant to deal with. There is a pretty good BBQ restaurant practically attached to it. So was it perfect? No. There were some places that could stand improvement... but it outshined the others I looked at by a long shot. So what were those areas? Well, it was at the end of the evening when we went to the pool, but still I thought the pool should have been much cleaner. Being close to the airport makes the location good, but in this case, there is next to nothing close by for picking up food items and what not unless you go to a gas station convenience store a ways down the road. You have to make a special trip to get your items before going to the hotel. While this hotel was much cleaner than the others I looked at, I actually looked at several rooms to find one that was most acceptable because some of them had some questionable areas in the bathroom. The up side to this is that the hotel clerk was extremely kind and accommodating by letting me evaluate so many rooms to find one that I was most okay with. They have a small amount of items for sale as a convenience to the guests, but man! the prices were outrageous! We're talking $3 for a tiny snack size bag of Doritos. Now let's talk rates! I am military, so sometimes that means the rates go down and other times it means the rates go up (yeah, really ... up!). In this case, I was pleasantly surprised with a great government rate. The airport shuttle is available, which is a plus, but just know that you have to schedule it before you need it and they only run on the 1/2 points. That being said, it only takes about 5-10 minutes to get to the airport and be dropped off. Overall, between the value of the government rate I received and difference in cleanliness at other places, this hotel is where I will always go when I visit New Orleans and want to be near the airport. Way to go Holiday Inn Express!
