Pleasantly surprised. We don't usually consider a two star, but the guest review was so high, the price was right, and we were an hour out from NO. Seemed a little weird at first since it was in the middle of a closed down Navy base, but it also felt very safe with all the open land around. I understand the Marines still have some sort of presence there, […] part of the reason the hotel is still open. Anyway, it was immaculate, huge room with two queen beds, kitchen, easy chair and ottoman, flat screen tv, table and chairs, desk, etc, all in very good condition. It's located about 1 1/2 miles from the free ferry that takes you across to the riverwalk area. We opted to take the ferry over and back during the day to avoid paying for parking. The last run was around 8;00PM, took some time to relax at the hotel, then drove back and parked to enjoy some of the night life. The only negative for some might have been the fact that it's 2 stories, and no elevator. Not an issue for us, and the gentleman at the desk offered to carry our luggage up if it was a problem. Chances are, if it were an issue there are plenty of rooms and probably easy enough to get a ground level. Staff was very nice. As you drive off the base, the surrounding area is very mixed, and we actually enjoyed driving around the Algiers area and seeing some of the older bungalow homes that have been so nicely restored
