I located the hotel on the website. It looks nothing like what is online. When I arrived late at night, there is no working attendant to assist you. Your key is taped to the front door. A resident had to show me to my room. The elevator is shaky and does not stop even with the floor. The hallways are... More

This magnificent building has some very lousy caretakers, she does not deserve the treatment she receives. After booking at the guest house, just finding the cheapest place in town (we're only going to sleep there anyway!) I started to read the reviews and started to get a little worried. I am a very open person and can survive a lot... More

I loved New Orleans and expect to journey there as much as possible. March 2005 was my first visit after talking about going for many years. I went with a companion and right away started looking for accommodations. We started researching suitable lodging. We stayed for two nights at the Hyatt and thought that it would be charming to stay... More

I just came home from New Orleans where I stayed at St Vincent's. After reading some of the other reviews I would like to give my opinion: The elevator is kind of old and jerks up and down when it stops, the stairs are working fine though. :) The room we had could have been better vacuumed but the sheets...

The price attracts everyone to this guest house...and the free parking but its sure not through word of mouth. We arrived to find one mighty creepy old building! The staff obviously were not happy with their choice of employment...no southern hospitality here! The building is in a serious need of a major overhaul. We were shown 2 different rooms...we choose... More

This was the most disgusting place I have ever been in. It was nothing like described or the photos shown on the web. There were dead bugs everywhere including the beds! Hundreds of bugs in the hallways and on the furniture. The yard had garbage cans overflowing and a grocery cart by the front door full of bags of trash.... More

My friends and I booked this in April through sidestep which took a $41.40 deposit. the confirmation told me that the rest of the $276 plus tax would be due on check in. The pictures on the site looked great (very very decieving) We took an early flight in My boyfriend and I have been to New Orleans many times... More

My first time in New Orleans and I was surprised about how small the streets were. The gh is withthin walking distance of the bus and the 11 magazine street lets... More

We went online to view this hotel that we found at a reasonable price. The picture showed a wicker bedroom set that looked adequate for the price. The dining room showed a wicker dining room setting. They showed a manicured landscape. Upon arrival we were in shock to find a terrible dump. It was obvious the hotel had not been... More

I'm not too picky when it comes to hotels, motels, and B +B's. I've stayed in former insane assylums, in homes owned by people hostel to Americans, and am always prepared with my own pillows and shampoo because hotel's aren't likely to have the best of either. This place, however, really has me peeved... not just because our shower curtain... More
