Staff could have been more informative about locations of amenities. Also thought we would be able to use the pier to fish! Hang out by the water and wax dissapppointed when we couldn't. Over all, it wasn't a bad stay and would consider using them again

They were knowledgeable about what was going on in New Orleans and how to get there from the motel. The rooms were clean and cool. We took advantage of the hot coffee and rolls that were available each... More

My boyfriend and I made a weekend trip to visit some friends and needed a place nearby their house to stay at. This was the closet and most affordable place I could find. I was VERY happy with the location, our room and the friendly staff! The room was nice and clean! I highly reccommend staying here!

This place is so quaint and quiet. It's fabulous. The bed is comfortable and the blanket was heavenly. The room smelled so clean and refreshing. I really enjoyed my stay and would definitely return. You can purchase fresh shrimp right off the boat dock next door.

Very nice hotel. There was not much attraction but we felt safe. It was only a few miles from New Orleans.Only problem we had was that somebody's kid was shooting fireworks about 10:00 p.m. outside their room door. Maid service was great.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just minutes from the French Quarter and downtown New Orleans, the Marina Motel is located in adjacent Chalmette, historic location of the Battle of New Orleans. Surrounded by serene and picturesque bayou waterways which boast fishing that is world-class, not only does the Marina Motel Chalmette offer close proximity to the excitement of the city, but also access to the very waterways that have labelled Louisiana a true sportsmans' paradise. Situated on Bayou Bienvenue, we are the best location for visitors to New Orleans who prefer the respite of a suburban setting, extended-stay industry contractors, or travelling families. Ample bus, truck and boat parking, outdoor pool and grills, coin laundry. ... more   less
