Bad points; If you are here for the city, pay 50bucks more and go to a BW on the north side of the river within walking distance of the French quarter etc. We went out looking for local food and sadly it's a low end area too, with only fast food and a low end seafood place close. It is...

We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay but the Best Western Bayou Inn is certainly not a motel is a nice hotel. True with rush hour traffic it can take 30 minutes to get to the quarter but usually it only 10 to 15 minutes and you don't have to pay 35 to 55 dollars a night just...

I checked in this hotel and I was suppose to have a handicapped room which the nice guest said he did not know why Expedia didn't change the reservation but the nice check in person straightened it out and put us in a handicap room. The security guard was helpful and the cook for our first 2 days were wonderful....

Unfortunately some guest are less than honest. all room are inspected between guest and this guest or one of her occupants deliberated destroyed a chair. If you have stayed at most any updated hotel you know they do not use $50.00 chairs. The chairs have to be able to support 300 lbs+ and meet certain design standard most cost closer...

I loved the ease of checking in and out. The staff is very attentative to every need. The cleanliness of the rooms and the breakfast area are always great. The breakfast "area" staff are great and very attentive that the area is "full". Always clean and comfortable.

Very helpful staff, who went out of their way to help with local transportation. Only issues were hairs found on a both towel, and unsightly crack in the shower pan. Minor design issue is the sink is located outside the bathroom. Would prefer it to be inside bathroom for privacy and noise issues.

Thank you for your comments. We are researching this particular shower pan. We are passing through each rooms seeking areas such as this so we are able to replace or repair. Thank you very much for helping us to be better at that which we do Bruce

This hotel is out in the middle of nowhere. At least that is how it felt after spending so much time in the French Quarter.

Thank you fro your thoughts. Westwego is a quiet area. Some folks enjoy it --others are looking for more activity. However when next you are in NOLA--please let us know--we have great sister properties that we can suggest that may be more to your tastes.
