Driving through NOLA can make you leary. I get that, but hang in there! The Lookout Inn is in a neighborhood called Bywater. It is an area of younger people just building their lives & the Inn is an older house that is super cool. Kelly & Marc really took care of our needs & gave us our space. Very... More

It's my secret home in my new favorite neighborhood, the sweet Bywater district of New Orleans, and there are only four rooms, and there's a gorgeous tropical courtyard with banana trees and a pool and a cabana and a hot tub, and there's a wiggly French Bullfog named Percy, and we were allowed to bring my terrier along, and the...

We were so happy with our choice of the Lookout Inn of New Orleans. Kelly, Mark, and their sweet fur baby, Percival, were the most gracious of hosts. The pool, cabana with amenities, and hot tub were such nice extras. This Inn has 4 separate suites, direct tv,complimentary wifi and free parking! The suites are spacious, with individual themes,and Kelly... More

Our daughter lives in New Orleans, and we dont really like to stay in the actual French Quarter. This lovely place is about a few miles outside the quarter, and it was a terrific place to stay! Very clean, quiet and the yard is amazing! The owners are very hospitable and provide everything you could possibly need to make your... More

We had a "family" Thanksgiving holiday at the Lookout. Six adults and six children. EVERYONE had a blast! Easy location for roaming the French Quarter, plenty of great restaurants, music and sights within walking distance, plus swimming and relaxing on the patio. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Kelly and Mark are the perfect hosts, very kind and attentive to all... More

My two girlfriends and I had a girl's weekend in New Orleans and this place was recommended. It was absolutely perfect! We stayed in the Bollywood suite and even though it was themed, it was a really lovely room with a huge bathroom. It felt like we had the place to ourselves even though it was fully booked. The pool... More

On our recent trip to New Orleans we decided to NOT stay in the Quarter, rather experience something different. The Lookout Inn did not disappoint! This lovely building holds 4 suites, each with it's own bathroom and all are specially themed. We chose the Elvis Suite. It was great, so comfy and homey. We had an ample "living room" with... More

We stayed at the Look Out inn and had a truly wonderful experience, we are more the independent edgy travellers and do not like staying at big chains but like some comfort and luxury. Kelly was so lovely and the Bywater area was our favourite area in New Orleans, it seemed like the most authentic neighbourhood in New Orleans. We... More
