We reserved 2 studio suites. Had to pick up our keys across at a diner, which was fine. The rooms smelled very musty, had corroded walls in the kitchen, some lights didn't work or had to be shut off by crawling under a table to unplug, the pillows were hard and flat and the spare pillows/blankets in the closet (which...

We stayed here during Jazz Fest last year and had a wonderful time. Jay, the inn keeper, was wonderful, pleasant and really helpful when trying to figure out what to do in the area. The courtyard is absolutely beautiful and well kept and you really can't beat the location or the price! It's just beyond the wild/loud part of Bourbon,... More

We really liked this place. The area was fantastic (parking takes a long time to find, it's street only). We had a few problems though. The bathroom was insanely small. The shower reminded me of a camp house shower, where it was tiny and it kind of sprayed out of the shower and you couldn't reposition it so it basically... More

So we really wanted to like this place. It appeared to have so many of the characteristics we seek in lodging - historic property, guest house, small, character, a even a bit adventurous knowing that it's at a very resonable price. This place had all those things. . . . we LOVED the location. . . right on Bourbon but... More

We stayed in the Green Suite. A perfect getaway. The suite is huge, with a full kitchen and bath. There is a private gallery overlooking the lush courtyard, and a walk out balcony on Bourbon Street . Our host, J was so wonderful and made us feel so welcome. He also gave us great tips for restaurants and entertainment. We... More

Horrendously small rooms. No receipt sent by any means (FAX, eMail, snail mail) to verify the reservation. One must consummate the arrival in a dry cleaners next door or a breakfast joint across the street. Nasty owner; went totally bonkers on accidental loss of so-called antique chair.

We stayed in the green suite for three nights and it was amazing! This room is huge, spacious, and beautiful. We had 6 people—we were supposed to have the green suite and a studio, but there was a mixup so we all stayed in the green suite—and it fit everyone just fine. Jay kindly provided an air mattress after the... More

We were planning a 7 week trip to USA and Canada and I think I found this place in a "Rough Guide" travel book. It looked so quaint, I checked the reviews and then ended up booking it more than a year in advance to get something with more character than a bland hotel room. In itself, booking was a... More

We just got back from our trip to New Orleans and I couldn't wait to put a review up for this place. We stayed in the Green Room and it was perfect. There were 3 of us, my husband and myself and a good friend. The only downfall of the adjoined rooms was that she had to go through our... More
