Motel 6 New Orleans - near downtown

Reviewed 29 June 2016

I was Ok with this Place until i woke up and tried to take a Shower.... No hot water. And the Bed was Hard . No Box Spring under the Mattress.. Security is good there. You can't even enter the Building unless you have a Room Card Key which is good.

Room Tip: Make sure you have Hot Water before booking room....

This motel looked fine the rooms were large and reasonably clean (though we did kill cockroaches in both rooms we were in) The problem is they lock the doors in the corridors between the rooms and the reception.....and that is where the danger lies....we were held up at gun point here and there was no other way to get to the reception for help but to go outside and as we were trapped inside the corridor we couldn't get to the outside door.....luckily the keys to our door failed or we would have been locked in our room with him....we did manage to get our Granddaughter away while the gunman was trying to get into our room and she got outside ran to reception for help only to find the door locked and a night window being used....even when she told them what was happening they didn't call for help they tried to give her another key....the guy did a runner when he realised our Granddaughter was gone....we went after her to make sure she was okay and she had only just got inside the hotel and they still didn't call the police we had to do it....they have cameras in the hotel but the nightstaff obviously don't monitor them or they would have seen what was going on especially when the guy started kicking the door.....the manager tried to blame us for the guy getting into the hotel but he pushed his way in when my husband went to take my wheelchair in and we assumed he was a guest.... he also said he had never had any problems like this before but when he told the police officer he had cameras the police officer said he was a good guy to work with as he always had what they needed.....so he obviously had had problems before....after it was all over we didn't feel safe as the gunman knew which room we were in and may have come back knowing we had accessed the room....so we requested to be moved which they did but moved us 4 doors down the same corridor....later that night someone was knocking on doors but we just ignored it.....please please becareful if you book this hotel...

Yes, the area around here seems sketchy. But NOLA has a lot of sketchy areas. It wouldn't keep me from visiting, I just know to be extra careful. Hotels were extra expensive during our visit to NOLA, which is why we settled here. We just needed a place to sleep and shower. This motel worked out for our needs. Our room seemed to have been recently renovated. The bed wasn't the most comfortable, but it was only for one night. I'd go back.

The hotel was okay. It was walking distance to Walmart and other fast food locations. The bathroom door looked like it's been through the shredder. The bed was hard. The room looked clean but very empty. For the price I cannot complain.

Very nice motel- new rooms it looked like, had the necessary amenities needed. Perfect location from downtown- a $9-15 uber ride to Frenchman/ Bourbon streets. What got us was the area- both uber drivers on different nights had warned us about that area and not to leave the hotel. If you tripadvisor any hotels/motels on that road the reviews will tell you not safe area.
