The four of us had booked two rooms at the Blue Moon Guest House & Saloon after reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor and other sites. It proved to be anything but what we were expected. Dirty astrays, odors of fuel, dirty bathtubs. I would describe the place as a end of the line youth hostel. We simply could... More

This guest house and music venue is one-of-a-kind! If you're lucky enough to spend time here, you an enjoy the hospitality, the wonderfully comfortable shared space and either a private or hostel room. Do come to hear great music, dance, and enjoy other people doing the same. The staff are welcoming and helpful; the music is terrific and the location... More

Not for the faint of heart someone else wrote. I agree with that. But if you are up for a fun experience in a basic 'home' setting, and some interaction with fellow travelers, then don't hesitate to stay at this friendly place with a prime music venue and bar at the back of the house. Yes it will be loud.... More

This was a new experience for us, a guest house with a living room lobby, a kitchen with "shared food" and "private food" refrigerators and cabinets and a back porch where a band performed. We opted for a bedroom with a private bath. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was adequate, although oddly equipped with two small showers... More

We loved it here... Stayed in the Balcony room so lovely and private with showers and own balcony. Room decorated with posters of bands that have played there. We made the most of the music (no cover charge if you are staying there) Just a generally lovely, friendly atmosphere!

the place didn't make a great impression on me. it's quite old and not really clean. the a/c in my room was very outdated and noisy: it didn't make any cool and it was better to use the fan. the place is really nice if you are willing to meet other travelers as there is a huge common space (living...

We stayed here with a Trek America group as part of a coast to coast tour. The atmosphere was lovely and the outside of the building is exactly what I expected of Louisiana with the rocking chairs on the porch. The dorms were basic which was fine by us, a bed is a bed. It was comfy but the only... More

Well, where to start... Excellent location, very VERY friendly staff (Julia rules!), and a wonderful relaxed atmosphere. It has a great bar next door (the day before our stay some members of Los Lobos jammed there) and the kitchen has everything you need. Clean rooms (we had the Bird's Nest), I don't know anything about the dorms since we had... More
