My husband and I just returned from a Caribbean Cruise. We stayed at the Creole Inn prior to leaving for our cruise to experience all the French Quarter had to offer. Initially we made a reservation to stay at a hotel, but after reading some of the glowing reviews about the Creole Inn we changed our plans to stay at... More

We will return to visit here. The innkeepers were very welcoming, helpful with restaurant and other hints. Very accommodating. The rooms were clean and pleasant. The only complaint we had was the height of the bed, my sister couldn't get in without a stool which Kim found for her, very helpful. Walking in the neighborhood and seeing the architecture was...

This was our third stay at the Old Historic Creole Inn. Kim and Charlie have come on board as innkeepers since our last stay. They were very accommodating and helpful. It is nice to have on street parking (included in the room price). Our room was clean and inviting. We'll stay there the next time we're in New Orleans.

I enjoyed staying here so much that my daughter and I came back this year for Thanksgiving, 5 days. But I was surprised to learn that 'cleaning' was going to be done while we occupied the room and had to pick up everything from the floor for a period of time and even though we were told we could stay...

I love, love, love it here. It was my second time and I loved it even more. I have never felt so at home so far from home before. A lot of that is definitely due to the truly welcoming and accommodating Inn keepers Kim and Charlie. As long as they are there I would never even look to stay... More

With the clean & comfortable Plantation room, and as someone who is very allergic to cigarette smoke & the lingering cigarette smoke smell, that ends up in the hospital, it's so nice to stay in a place that doesn't have the smell of cigarette/cigar smoke. Kim & Charlie makes sure everyone is having a great stay, if someone needs something,... More

This is, I think, the fifth time I've stayed at this guest house. It is certainly my favorite place to stay in New Orleans. Hipsters would call it "shabby-chic;" I just call it homey, since it's very much like my own home in terms of style and cleanliness. The owners have made small improvements over the years, more out of... More

The Inn is located in the Marigny neighborhood which is full of charming homes. It is a short walk to Frenchmen which we preferred to Bourbon Street. While the price for our rooms was very inexpensive, the rooms were dark, dreary and fell short of clean. It also smells of cigarette smoke. When asked to vacuum, the caretaker was responsive...

I loved this neighborhood and easy walk to Frenchman and not bad to French quarter. Safe for single female traveler. Somewhat eccentric care takers, lovely room with Victorian feel. Clean enough but could have been cleaner. Overall a gem for the price and I loved it. People is the neighborhood are insanely nice and helpful.
