My only real issue with it was that there was no staff until breakfast time, and you had to pay for a coffee pot in the room. For someone who wants coffee first thing, that's a bad thing. The inn keeper was not there, so we had to hunt to find the room and that was actually neat. There were very detailed instructions.

This is the Big Easy at it's best for those on a budget. A great place to stay, great place to just hang by the pool, chill and mellow. Fun staff who will direct you to the best of NOLA. Convenient to everything, quite interesting neighborhood.

We loved how close we were to everything. We also loved that we could rent a bicycle. We also liked the hot tub and pool. heads up cemetery#1 is only open to tour guides. We loved our big room, it is a great place to stay. The staff is great and very friendly.

Awesome location, easy to get to French Quarter and plenty of other places, only met the owner who could not have been sweeter. The bathrooms are super cranky, I ended up having to wait quite a while for hot water, and the overall cleanliness was not great, but honestly its a cute place. I felt totally safe and was very comfortable in my time there. I would stay again!

My boyfriend and I went ahead and booked this room for more than we wanted to spend as we began noticing rooms selling out for the weekend. I do believe we overpaid, however, we were upgraded to a very nice large room with a kitchenette. All amenities worked and we were very comfortable. the lady who made the breakfast in the morning made us delicious banana pancakes and the next day recommended a delicious restaurant nearby. The mansions are in a perfect location, very close to everything yo... Read more

A beautiful and unique B&B! Loved it and loved the walks all over town! Yes, the bathroom had some issues but, when I am that old, I am sure I wil have some issues also. Would we stay there again, ABSOLUTELY! Awesome, friendly staff.

Well this place is in need of work. The hardwood floor in the bedroom was soft in spots with termite damage, paint was pealing off the walls and ceiling, saw a few roaches, furniture was scratched, the bathroom was not clean, and dust on curtains. On a positive note....We had fun in N.O. and was within walking distance to the French Quarter.

We just got back from a weekend trip to New Orleans. We stayed at this place because it was a lot cheaper than some of the other hotels nearby. However, the price we paid was by no means cheap. It was also close to the French Quarter. We upgraded to a Queen/Queen room which we thought was great....until it wasn't. First off, we had this lovely little note in the bathroom sink telling us that the sink was not working, but for us to use the kitchen sink. Then the knob on the shower fell off l... Read more

Two representatives epitomized southern hospitality. My husband and I felt like long lost family. They always had a delicious breakfast spread every morning. In addition, they scored some free balcony space in the heart of bourbon street for all of their guests *on* Mardi gras. And believe me, they were up there with the rest of us, having just as much fun! The mansions themselves were gorgeous, and only a 10 min walk away from bourbon street and the French quarter. We walked everywhere and ke... Read more
