The New Orleans Guest House has always been a cute example of Capotesque southern charm. However now that the new owner has become entrenched what was once charm seems like neglect. What was once shabby chic just shabby (a lobby that smells like cat pee!?!?). For those who never visited when Ray an Alvin owned the B&B the the experience... More

Stayed one night, rooms were slightly dirty but the location made up for it, being a 5 minute walk from bourbon st. Staff was really friendly and the outdoor patio was a really nice touch. Would definitely come back if even in New Orleans again.

Went 10 years ago - this place is located other side of street from French Quarter, therefore less pricey (at that time). Parking has high gates, locked at night, to secure car. We rented 2 rooms on 2nd floor - plush carpet, vintage furniture, sinks, etc., but everything worked. Quaint outdoor porch where they served excellent breakfast (paper doilies, strawberries... More

My wife and I stayed here for 5 days and really enjoyed the location. It is a very short walk into the French Quarter and an even shorter walk to a little convenience store if you need anything. The staff was friendly and it was a perfect little spot for our honeymoon on a budget. Bring your own hair dryer... More

Overall, bed was comfortable and looked clean, but there was a stain on the bedspread. The bath towels were thin (one even had a hole in it). Several cats outside. Outdoor breakfast area... More

If you're looking for an authentic hotel in the French Quarter - look no further! The hotel is very hard to miss with its bright pink exterior, I happened to think it was somewhat cute - others thought differently. The room that I stayed in was on the ground floor right in the courtyard. It was convenient to access -... More

This is the unqualified worst hotel I have ever stayed in. We checked in, room #8 looked presentable and cute with antique furniture. Two drawers were immediately opened, one on the dresser, one on the night stand. The night stand contained what appeared to be illicit drugs, white powder in a baggie. The dresser contained live wriggling white wormy termite... More

We had a room by the courtyard and it was clean and so comfortable. Every member of the staff we encountered was gracious and so friendly. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. Wendy, the desk clerk that checked us in, was an absolutely wonderful!!!!

This a great spot to stay! Very convenient to everything! Staff is super sweet! Does need some updating, especially in the courtyard area, but all in all a very nice place to stay. If you are not a cat person this is probably not for you.
