I really enjoyed the house itself, all the historic detail that has been preserved over the years. The room and bathroom were a good size. The bed was terrible, the mattress was very old and lumpy, had a squeaky bed frame and pillows were not comfortable at all. Also, the lack of a ceiling fan made the room stuffy.
Owner and her assistant were awesome. Perfect stay. Wonderful breakfast, lovely furnishings. When booking on line, cheaper rooms are in renovated section, spacious, comfortable yet modern and "sterile" If you want historic, upgrade to older sections.
Beds were comfortable and location was nice. The grounds were trashy and the pool was gross. We often witnessed staff standing around talking and smoking. Staff would walk past trash on the ground, more than once, and never stopped to pick it up. The pool had a grease film on the surface of the water and a film on the tile edge. I brought the condition of the pool to the staff's attention and was told it would be cleaned that day, that never happened. The film on the tile easily scraped off with my thumb nail, I am sure a simple brushing would get the film off with little difficulty. If our roommate had showed himself on day one we would not have stayed at this location but the roach I found walking on the bedside table only joined us on our last day.
There was a streetcar and bus stop right by the hotel which was very convenient.
I loved the room and the continental breakfast was great. I also like the location. It was close to so many attractions. The room was very comfortable and clean. The only thing I didn't like was that the tile around the lower section of the bathroom was loose and some that were replaced were not replaced properly.
The location was perfect for our 1 night stay. Enjoyed having the trolley stop right in front of hotel and being able to travel easily. The beds were very comfortable and the room was spacious for my familiy of 4. The free breakfast was delicious. There was a dirty sock from the previous guests in the closet and a "huge ass beer" in the fridge. Other than that everything was good
The staff was great, the room was clean and comfortable and the location was perfect for both my work and leisure.
Nothing Worst Hotel every. 0 up keep in the last 20 years. Don't let the pictures fool you it's a dive.
Location was dope! The shower was awful! Got water all over the floor
The staff was great. The wi-fi connection was horrible.
The customer service was very bad. I tried several times to reach the front desk without success. The wifi and cable were both out our entire stay. Parking was not included in the price as indicated. Valet service was not communicated with so we had issues getting our car several times. I would not stay in this hotel again.
Room was very clean and quiet. Bed was comfortable and a decent size TV. none
When we got to the room after checking in our hotel room door was open, the beds were a disaster, not made up in the least bit, trash in the trash cans & one... Yes ONE towel. No pillow cases at alllll the entire weekend even after requesting them numerous times. The only staff member worth anything was the security guard, super nice and very helpful, front desk lady was somewhat nice seemed too annoyed and not very helpful, took off the parking pass fee but I wasn't really interested in any of the other stuff... Security guard even told us that he tried to tell her to help us and all she said was "what you want me to do?!" When we told them the beds were not made or anything they just handed us one and a half sets of sheets and we had to strip and make out own beds... Not worth it, would rather pay the extra money next year for st patties weekend, very disappointing.
the hotel was built around a lovely courtyard. A nice place to relax and enjoy a quiet evening. Also right on the trolly line.
Dirty, room wasn't ready when we arrived at check in. Not a good part of town, half mile walk to anything. Did not apologize for any of their wrongdoings and we are still fighting them for a refund.
Worthless It was humiliation to have to stay there.
Not only was this hotel situated in a very dangerous neighborhood (Tulane Ave is notorious for gangland shootings), but the property manager failed to provide basic amenities (didn't have running hot water). When I confronted her about her shortsiding, she failed to provide a refund and had a very nasty attitude towards me. I would recommend travelers to stay far away from this establishment at all costs.
The lady on third shift was really nice. It was close to Superdome. First room smelled of Pot, the people next to us were smoking it heavily. The second room heater did not work and there were roaches and bugs everywhere. The elevators were broken. The place looked nothing like the pictures. Homeless guy sleeping the lounge area. This place is just and in and out for drugs and prostitution. I had two children with me. I have never stayed in something so awful. If i would have had the extra money. i would have found somewhere else to stay.
Absolutely nothing even remotely acceptable about this "hotel". Horrible Staff Uncomfortable beds. Cleanliness nonexistent. Shower didn't work. Windows didn't lock. Dirty everything. Too expensive for what it is. How it's still in business is beyond my friends and I. Some people gave this place more than one star??? Only reason they get one from me it's because I can't give them a negative star rating. Did i mentioned the staffs lack of professionalism? A simple attempt on being kind to the people that have contributed to the fact that you're still employed would suffice.
The price was better than others within the distance to the quarter. You get a little bit edgier look at the city. The outer brickwork is charming. It has potential, but looks like it needs a lot of funding to bring it up to snuff. The bed was clean and comfortable. Lights didn't work, carpet and walls are gross, no bathroom vent, never had enough towels and staff couldn't get more, 3am street brawl at the night club next door...
There were beds and there was a roof. Sorta. No customer service. Lucky if you walk out WITHOUT being yelled at. Shady with your credit card. I had to dispute a charge they made without telling me. The elevator was broken and we were on the 4th floor. Maybe I'm spoiled but I usually expect more than a nod and a blank stare when I talk to someone who is supposed to be a customer service rep.
This place had a bed and a roof ... The carpet was wet when we got there and it never dried out. The bathroom was disturbingly gross. The jacuzzi was a large wet ashtray.
The staff was very polite and professional. The location was great because we were going to Voodoo Fest which was held in City Park. Easy less than $10 cab ride. The beds were reasonably comfortable. The area was sketchy. We arrived at night and were not sure we were at the right place. The carpet did not appear to have been vacuumed. The room was very bare bones as far as decor, which is fine because it was very, very inexpensive. The shower drain was gross and clearly clogged.
I got a non smoking room but the room smelled like cigarettes, the sheets had scorch marks, some of the outlets didn't work and no internet
Not safe. Don't go there. Prostitution. Broken down rooms.
- 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
Friendly and attentive staff and a great value. Too far from the quarter and in a sketchy part of the city.
You would not know it by the sort of average photos that I saw on-line, but Site 61 was better in many ways than I expected. I hadn't stayed in a hostel for many years, so was not sure what I would find for such a (compared to hotels) low price. What I found was a well-run hostel operated by a kind and personable staff, a half dozen immaculate (and seemingly brand new) bathrooms (clean toilets, showers with great water pressure and warm water) and rooms that were also clean. i also enjoyed chatting with the staff in the mornings before I headed out for my day. Love this place ! I don't love bunk beds, but who does? Just one of the things one must deal with when staying in a hostel. But as far as bunk beds go, mine was comfortable!
I enjoyed that it was setup like a hostel. Community shower and restroom with a community kitchen. Also, I enjoyed that they offer ear plugs right at the front desk. So in case that you don't want to hear your neighbors then you can use them to get some beauty rest. The air conditioning in there was not cooling very well and it was slightly I unclmfortingto have to wait to go to the restroom. Make sure you get up early to use it.
