Better than staying on the street
Posted 7-Mar-2016 on Hotels
You truly get what you pay for. I was traveling alone, and needed something rock-bottom in price, without being too far to walk in and out of the Quarter. When my cab dropped me off here, he told me that any time after 11pm, I needed to take a cab in and out of the neighborhood. Well, I didn't do that and I was fine, but way to start me off on a high note.
Speaking of a high note, I'm pretty sure most of the other guests were high out of their minds. Wouldn't have been any of my business but the walls are thin enough that you can hear literally all of the conversation in the hall or in the adjoining rooms. Also, one night past 2am, I awoke to loud screaming up and down the hall; a woman was making a very loud fuss about something, and wanted to fight just about everyone, apparently. I heard one of the clerks eject her, and yell into the street that if she ever came back he'd put her in jail. FUN.
Walls are peeling. Shower didn't drain very well. Mirrors were all broken somewhere. Sink leaked profusely, and also didn't drain quickly. Mattress was covered in loud plastic sheeting that trailed onto the floor. On the plus side, the A/C worked, as did the outlet to charge my phone. So it's not even the worst hotel I've ever stayed in.
