This is the hotel version of a neighborhood dive bar: friendly if slightly skeevy, but the price is right, location works, and it’s just fine when you just need something basic. Especially for those on a budget, who want to explore the Marigny and Bywater or hang out on Frenchmen Street. Expect basic pressboard reproduction furnishings; some rooms have remnants of charm, like arched doorways or non-working fireplaces. Rate includes continental breakfast (yes, with waffles!), served in a sweet, covered outdoor patio. Two long row houses, joined by a narrow brick courtyard, are a bit ramshackle but staff works hard to keep things tidy. Three small shotgun houses facing Marigny Street serve as kitchenette suites and a dorm style group room.
