Five of us (male, mid-20s) stayed here for a week and couldn't be happier with the setup. It's a big old house right in the middle of the Faubourg Marigny neighbourhood (next to the French Quarter). Great vibe in the area; lots of 20s-30s, arty hipster-types, plenty of good dive bars, restaurants and live music. Easy walk to Bourbon street... More

My wife and I came to New Orleans for our honeymoon and decided to stay at The Creole Inn. The service and atmosphere are top notch. It is close to everything but still far enough away that you can get a good night's sleep without a bunch of noise. Kim and Charlie are very nice and the perfect innkeepers. The... More

Kim and Charley were amazing hosts and the room was beautiful! Really close to Frenchman street and the French quarter and not far from Bourbon either. Cab fares are cheap if you don't want to walk. We will definitely stay here again!!

While booking and reading the reviews I thought this place could not be that bad! However I was sadly mistaken upon my arrival. They not only did't have my reservation on file they also did not even have a lock on the door, the room had not even been cleaned. I had to wait in the front room while all... More

Our stay in New Orleans couldn't have been more perfect. The caretakers at the Creole Inn treated us like family. This Bed and Breakfast, with no breakfast, was very inexpensive. The value of the area is priceless. We parked the car and was able to walk to all of the key areas we wanted to go to. Frenchman St., Treme,... More

We weren't exactly sure what to expect because of the low price and good reviews, but we were pleased with our choice. The owners were extremely friendly & gave us a ton of information. Rooms are small but nice and enough room for 2. We were able to find free parking on the street in the neighborhood and were able... More

It's getting to be a bit of a habit, coming here, bordering on the compulsive. So much so, that I've booked again for this September. That's how enjoyable it is!! And for the price, you can't beat it for value. The Karma, the calm of the Inn, the innkeepers, the prime location for venturing out, to converse with the other... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and would certainly recommend. Kim and Charley were hugely welcoming and accommodating and the room was a good size and very homely. They're located in a great spot in Marigny with a good number of local cafés and bars, but are only a 5 minute walk to Frenchman. A great value, local option.

We've stayed here 3 yrs. In a row and this is our go to inn. There's never a question of where we'll stay when in New Orleans. It's outside of the crowded french quarter but we'll within walking distance. The innkeepers are great! The rooms are very nice and the conversations in the courtyard are very friendly and helpful.

We stayed in the two bedroom, Sweet Dreams, which was clean, comfortable, and an outstanding value. This establishment is the essence of New Orleans culture and experience. The local food, esp breakfast, was the best I had the entire trip. About 1 mile to Jackson Square, and stunningly beautiful to take in the scenery in the way there. The caretaker... More
