Things to Do

There are many things to do near New Orleans while visiting. While our motel room fees won’t break your wallet, there are plenty of reasons to stay with us for a few more days and enjoy what the city has to offer.

Oasis Motel has been a unique part of Greater New Orleans since it first opened in the 1960’s. We love New Orleans and we love to share the area and activities with our guests. From a short walk to taking a hour long road trip, there is something for everyone from a local’s perspective.
