Me and my partner visited Nola for the first time between 9-16 july 2014 and stayed at the Lion's Inn and we absolutely LOVED it! This is THE place to stay when you're in Nola. We walked or rode the bikes you can borrow for free basically everywhere. The neighbourhood is quiet, feels safe to walk in and there's cafe's... More

My daughter and 2 granddaughters and I arrived late afternoon and when we entered the home the owner's dog immediately jumped and growled at the girls. Once we got to our room and used the commode it clogged, my daughter ran downstairs and Ed just gave her a handful of towels to clean up any mess. Mind you it was... More

We really enjoyed our 4 nights at The Lion Inn. The new proprietor, Ed, was always courteous and helpful without being intrusive. It is well located for a few days exploring NOLA. The surrounding Marigny district is full of delightful houses and the Cake Café just down Chartres Street excellent for lunch (closes at 3pm). A safe 10 minute walk... More

This great Little b&b is on a quiet street in the Marigny, a 10 minute walk from the French Quarter. Safe neighbourhood, with free parking in the street. Stayed here for four days in June and nothing happened to the car. Rooms are very clean and have airco, a must on our 92F days we were there. We had a... More

I stayed here during Jazzfest and it was perfect. I felt like I was staying at someones house. Located just outside of the French quarter in the Marginy it was nice to come home to this peaceful oasis everyday. The continental breakfast was very good.Lots of friendly folk at breakfast everyone seems to hang around the patio and chat. Lots... More

We stayed here for two night while attending a conference in the French Quarter. Our room was very nice and quiet even though it was right off the pool. The pool area is an oasis so plan on spending time enjoying it. We loved that you could leave the craziness of the French Quarter behind and slip into the peace... More

The B&B is just outside the French Quarter on Chartres Street which is very leafy and has a good local feel. It's conducive to meeting other guests, including the wine and cheese hour at 5pm round the pool. The room felt a little underfurnished with only one bedside table and a wardrobe not long enough for a dress. But well... More

My friend and I stayed at The Lions Inn for 4 days this last week. It really is as wonderful as all the reviews say it is! It is a short walk to the French Quarter or if you'd like to go further, only a few blocks away from the nearest streetcar station. Ed was a wonderful host and very... More
