We stayed from Oct 26th - Oct 29th at the Holiday Inn in Gretna. Check in was extremely easy and we were allowed to check in early. That was a nice perk since we had been in a car for 8 hours. The room was a nice size and was clean. Some of the furnishing had seen better days and there were stains and tears on lamp shades and the ottoman. The bathroom was also clean, but the room with the shower was very small. I had asked for a room with a city view, but was given a room near the expressway. The noise level from the expressway was very bothersome to us. If we had not been as tired as we were, I'm not sure how much sleep we would have gotten. We did not eat breakfast in the attached restaurant after we saw what was being offered for the price. We decided to go down the street to another restaurant. We did appreciate when we had our Do Not Disturb sign on the door that we were not bothered. The only other small issue was that the ice machine was not working on our floor and when I called the front desk I was told to try another floor. Our check out was very easy as well. The area was not easy to drive around. Over all I think next time we would pay the extra money to stay on the other side of the river.
