Hey everyone, I am trying to find a decent hotel (no rats or stealing or dirty beds) [which are the horror stories I am reading online] to stay in the French Quarter in two weeks time......
Thing is, I am on a budget too and I need to stay under $80.00 a night.
Does anyone have any good suggestions? I'd greatly appreciate your insight.
Thank You!

Don't plan anything yet. You may not want to be in this area in two weeks due to a potential hurricane...

Default Have to

Have to begin planning, hubby coming down that way for job interview...
I'll keep my fingers crossed that it goes on by I guess.
That being said....any suggestions?
I keep hearing these crazy horror stories about drugs and crime and murders and rats and roaches, and I have always been so excited about visiting NOLA and now I am kinda scared...should I be?

I visited NO last winter. Burbon Street, French Quarter.... nothing. Stores were shuttered, no bus or taxi, no parking, no restaurants. One bar, one pharmacy and one gas station was open. The only thing that might pass for a hotel was the casino. On the way back to our hotel at Lafayette we stopped at Gonzales, LA., to eat. It's between Baton Rrouge and NO .

We stopped at a chinese buffet. The food and service was awesome, It was so injoyable I wished I had known about this town sooner. Seriously.

If I wanted to relocate to this state I would seriously look at Shreveport; It's an awesome town that is progressive. Lots to do and see and places to play. The food is good, too.

Lovely exaggeration.

Not sure of prices these days, but it will probably be hard to find something at that rate. Maybe better to stay in Metairie around Lakeside (I-10 and Causeway) and drive to the Quarter.
