Courteous, clean, updated and perfect location! What more could I ask for....oh, how about convenient secure parking, free upgrade and architectural ambiance all at a very fair price! We stayed in a room that faced the street (yes, you can sometimes hear music from Frenchmen street but no big deal), it was more than we hoped for with a separate... More

I only had time to stay one night but will definitely be back for more. The room was excellent. It had all the modern amenities but also had all the charm of an old New Orleans house. Beautiful wood floor, the bathroom had what appeared to be marble tile on the floor and shower. The bed was plush and comfortable.... More

Love the location, the buildings and rooms. Excellent variety of rooms. Very clean and the housekeeping staff, especially Shawanda, were fantastic and so friendly! Convenient and secure parking for New Orleans lodging. We are regular visitors to New Orleans for over 25 years and this is one of our top picks to stay as far as location, comfort and price....

We stayed here over Halloween. Room 214, which is a suite in the old house, overlooking the street. There is no soundproofing; in fact the french doors are single pane and don't even lock securely. So no sleep since the street noise is deafening. I would suggest that you either ask for a room in the rear, away from the... More

Delightful historic charm, ultra clean and comfortable, and great location; you can walk to the Quarter but you won't hear it. The owners were friendly and welcoming, too. Charming courtyard with pool.

Only had one night in NO and happy that we stayed at the Lamothe House Hotel. Quiet historic location but in easy walking distance to great venues in the French Quarter. Hoping for a longer stay on the next trip and will definitely stay here again.

This was a very disappointing stay, paid a lot $$ for our room and we were almost right under the stairs. We could almost not even use the toilet the bathroom was so small. Room had no table and we tiny. We will not be staying here next year. Lost a loyal customer. Be careful what you get when you... More

Had unit on bottom floor right by pool. Large room. Excellent location, close to Frenchmens St-right out the back gate. Nice secure parking. 6 or so blocks to the action on Bourbon. Comfortable walking distance to much of French Quarter.

My husband and I have made reservations here for the few nights before Christmas the last two years. Obviously, we liked it; we came back! Lamothe House is one of the best values I can ever remember having gotten. Things to love: The location is perfect here. Don't book if you want to be in the middle of the French... More
