A highly-rated hotel just north of NOLA’s northern town of Pearl River, the Microtel Inn & Suites along Old Military Road is a modern stay that takes out all the stops. Offering free hot breakfast, Wi-Fi in every room, plus the option to upgrade to suites, the stay is especially popular with hikers looking to explore the north side of Lake Pontchartrain. Get business done swiftly so you can reach the fun fast, whether you’re looking forward to a sit-down at the heart of the French Quarter or enjoying riverside views from renowned national parks. Get around town with the right transportation, choosing between a swift meet-and-greet service or the freedom to explore The Big Easy with your own private ride.
Though the Microtel doesn’t offer an on-site restaurant, there is a Subway in the parking lot, not to mention close access to Cajun Mike’s Kitchen, located at the heart of Pearl River. Get to know the small town’s charm while you’re there, looking forward to the weeping willows that surround The Old Green Church, a historic landmark worth walking into. Those looking to experience Louisiana’s natural backdrop should head to Pearl River Wildlife Management Area at some point, taking in thousands of acres of forests, trails, and boating perfect for forgetting the rest of the world. Drive across the Pontchartrain Drive bridge afterward, delving into the heart of NOLA, then looking forward to scenic views on the way back.
