To me, there is simply no other place to stay when I visit New Orleans. This was probably stay number 6 or 7. After a recent multi-week shutdown to freshen up the place, Kim and Charley are back to doing what they do best: making guests feel like family. This is a small guesthouse--five cozy rooms in all, so you... More

I was hesitant to book our stay at the Creole Inn based on the low price. We traveled in June and paid $47 per night for the 2 bedroom "Cowboy" unit. My traveling companion and I were intrigued by their blunt, yet humorous website, the free parking, and the proximity to the French Quarter and decided to give it a... More

In New Orleans, this is 'The Ace Place' !!! Back for our umteenth visit in so many months. You can't beat the place for price and location - the location in the Marigny, where people nod and say good morning, so close to Frenchmans and within walking distance of the Quarter. (The only other places to stay at this price... More

We stayed for 7 Nights in the Creole Inn, it´s a pretty nice old Building, authentic and historically, close to French Quarter and great Cafe´s for Breakfast, you can nearly reach everything by walking or with Bicycles. New Orleans is beautiful and the People are heartily and open minded, Kim and Charley, the Hosts, are great, friendly, they make you... More

We were on a budget, and found this little gem for our stay in New Orleans. Super close (easy walking) to Frenchman St. and the Quarter but on a quiet little street away from all the chaos. The rooms were small....but they were exceptionally clean, super well air conditioned, and the beds were unbelievably comfy! There is also a great... More

If you are looking for a place to stay in New Orleans and you're on a budget, this is it. Don't expect a hotel experience, but do expect a quiet place to sleep that's within walking distance of the French Quarter. Also the inn keepers, Kim and Charley are absolutely wonderful. They're very kind, enthusiastic about giving recomendations, and they'll... More

We wanted to stay in the French Quarter but didn't want to pay the prices of the big hotels over Memorial Day weekend. The Creole Inn was perfect. We were within walking distance to the river, Jackson Square and the sites of the French Quarter. We loved being so close to all of the clubs on Frenchman Street. Kim, our... More

We had so much fun in 2014 that we just had to return! Kim and Charlie are wonderful! They are friendly and informative. Good People! Part of a wonderful vacation is the lodgings. I would not hesitate to recommend the Historic Creole Inn to anyone, and I have to many of my friends. I look forward to my return!

My husband and I just returned from a 4 night stay at the Creole Inn. We knew up front that it was only a place to sleep and that's exactly what we needed. We knew we would be out and about most of our days. We were in the plantation room. The room is small but it's private. There's enough... More

I had a pleasant time here. The location was great for me, only a few (safe) blocks from Frenchmen St. I walked to and from Frenchmen, and from the French Quarter it's less than $10 in a cab. The locks made everything safe. Staff was very helpful with recommendations around the city. There was even coffee and tea in the... More
