Staff is nice which is the only reason I'm giving 2 stars instead of 1. There was no maid service, appliances were broken, and room was dirty. Had to ask to be moved to a different room with working shower. Not impressed.

We were originally booked to stay in another hotel in NO but due to a few issues we checked out early after finding this gem of a hotel. Check in was a breeze. Hotel room was a good size and the location of the hotel was awesome. You are within walking distance of the WWII Museum and The French Quarter.... More

There is a reason they CROP the exterior photo to only the Inn's facade; it's not really in Garden District neighborhood, more like: freeway-adjacent, next to pizza shop, Office Depot, Wendy's and other biz concerns. Eh. Outside - cute paint job, nice porch (overlooking busy, kinda ugly section of street.) Inside - dim, dingy, okay little courtyard, but everything else... More

Glenda, the on duty hostess, when I called to make the same-day reservation, was very sweet and kind. She was helpful and made the reservation very quickly for us. When we arrived, everything was very clean and toddy. Checking in was a breeze. Our rooms were very comfortable and well-sized. Our dog was welcomed, and it was easy to take... More

The room we stayed in should be closed by the city inspectors. We paid a premium price for a dirty, run down room. Cobwebs, lumpy dirty beds, stained dirty carpet, peeling wallpaper, mold in the bathtub crevasse between times. I have never been in any hotel that nasty in all my years of travel!

This would not be my first choice (closer to last resort) for a return trip New Orleans. We stayed here during an impromptu trip to Jazz Fest. We chose the Streetcar Inn because the price was reasonable and it seemed prices all over New Orleans had been drastically inflated to take advantage of last minute Jazz Fest travelers. So, here...

I was indeed surprised. I usually stay in a hotel but got sidetracked when I saw this place online and decided to go ahead and book it for the weekend. Pulled up and I could already tell this would be a great experience. We checked in and Glinda and Gary were just plain awesome. Our room was very cool with... More

We ended up happy that we did not listen to all of the reviews we read. We stayed in room 42 and it was a pleasant stay. Yes the place is old and could use a little updating but our room was clean, air conditioner worked fine and maid service came in everyday. The breakfast selection was good however the... More

Our room and bath was very clean, large and the service was nice and very helpful, the breakfast was pretty good, the restaurants around the hotel are great with different choices, also the streetcar stops right in front of of the hotel would definitely stay here again

The hotel was on one of New Orleans premier streets, but this hotel definitely did not meet up to my expectations! My room had missing paint on the walls, the comforter had thread pulled out and hanging off the sheet, when I went to get a piece of tissue, there was one tissue left in the box mixed with pieces...
