We were going on a family trip: my husband and me, our three adult children, and one boyfriend. We needed someplace comfortable and close to everything - and affordable! Sweet Olive had the absolutely perfect layout for us: two rooms to accommodate a pair in each plus a "two room suite" - actually two complete bedrooms with baths connected by... More

From Nancy's warm welcome to her fond farewell our stay was absolutely wonderful! She thinks of everything from printing out maps for guests to including a weather report on the breakfast menu. Great location, warm and inviting a home away from home.

Nancy is the best.. My husband and I stayed here for 3 glorious days and when it came time to go back to reality I really didn't want to go. We stayed in the Olive room for the first two nights and it's simply amazing. Have your own private porch with beautiful French doors,a gorgeous 4 poster king size bed... More

We made a return trip to New Orleans and didn't think twice about where to stay. We received the same wonderful greeting from Nancy, had the delicious breakfasts and interesting conversations with fellow guests. The area around the B&B is becoming more developed so there's even more interesting things to see and do. Looking forward already to our next stay.

Owner/Innkeeper Nancy does everything to make Sweet Olive a beautiful place to stay. There are few rooms -each with its own bath/shower - and each decorated in a different style (I stayed at the Oak Room, so of course that one's my favorite!) It really feels quite private and cozy (you even lock the outside gate when you come in).... More

Nancy and her beautiful retreat are more than any (reasonable) person could ever ask for in a B&B. She is unobtrusive yet warm and charming, knowledgeable of local attractions and dining yet is not pushing packages and tours for another proprietor, and she maintains trendy yet cozy (and clean) rooms. Location was ideal, since we are more Frenchman than Bourbon,... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in April 2015 and Just loved it. Nancy was the perfect host, full of information about touring, eating and visiting places. We had the courtyard suite and it was great, very private, quiet and spacious. A small problem with the ceiling fan was fixed ASAP. The breakfasts were great with a lot of variety... More

Just returned from Jazz Fest and a lovely stay at Auld Sweet Olive with my husband. From the moment we arrived it felt like we were staying at a friend's house -- the rooms were clean, cool and comfortable, the shared spaces inviting and cozy, the breakfast simple yet filling -- I always woke up to the smell of a...

We stayed during the French Quarter Festival. Nance was super helpful in guiding us around and directing us to the things we were interested in seeing. The Sweet Olive is comfortable and the breakfast was very good. It is close enough to the action, but far enough to get a good night's sleep. We would definitely still here again.

The stay at Auld Sweet was nothing but amazing. Nancy was extremely accommodating. The homemade breakfast was delicious and she took the time each day to make sure we had everything to make our stay prefect. She gave us many great ideas and activities to do each morning. We can't wait to go back and visit again.
