“Great three-night stay in New Orleans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

The Avenue Inn's location is very convenient, yet away from the hustle and bustle (and noise) of downtown or French Quarter hotels. We were always able to find parking right in front, which was convenient, but there is additional (free) off-street parking available right behind the Inn. As pictured, the building is a beautiful old New Orleans home, and Joe and Bebe have furnished it tastefully with many period pieces. The continental breakfast had a nice variety of choices, which we enjoyed -- and we loved sitting on the front porch in the morning after breakfast, drinking coffee and watching the streetcars go by!

We had a king-size room at the front of the house on the ground floor, with its own entrance. The room was very large, and even though it faced St. Charles Avenue, street noise was minimal. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was spotlessly clean.

Joe and Bebe made excellent suggestions for things to do and places to eat -- some of which were just a very short walk from the Inn. Magazine Street, with all its interesting shops, was also nearby.

We would definitely stay here again on another trip to New Orleans.

Stayed November 2012, traveled as a couple

We really appreciate all the nice things said about us by this wonderful couple. What a pleasure to have them in our mansion home. They live in Houston, so we expect them to come back soon. We've got a huge list of restaurants for them to try out!

We enjoyed our stay at this B&B as we celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary. Joe & Bebe were wonderful hosts and greeted us with warm chocolate chip cookies. They also had some great recommendations on things to do and places to eat. The street car stopped almost right in front of the house which was really convenient. We would love to stay here again.

What a sweet couple here to relax from the day to day workload of a young family. We were so happy they enjoyed some peace and quiet here in our mansion home. Hope to see them back again soon!

This was the last vacation my hubby and I get for a while because we are expecting a new little one in a few months... and we are so glad we chose to go to NOLA and stay at Avenue Inn! This was our first experience with a B&B (we usually stay in resorts), and we were pleasantly surprised by the comfort and convenience of the place. Joe and Bebe were great, and every recommendation they made was golden (listen to their advice!). Joe has a dry quirky sense of humor, and Bebe is a good example of the classic hostess. We enjoyed their casually friendly attitudes. The room we stayed in was adorable, and we were again pleasantly surprised by how comfortable the bed was. We are kind of picky about mattresses, but we just melted away on this bed every night. The location was perfect-- Right on the Streetcar line (which we could barely hear from our street-side room) that took us just about anywhere we wanted to go. Plus there were many wonderful dining options close by (including beignets just steps away!). This was one of the best vacations we've ever had, and hope we get to do it again soon.

Room Tip: Go to the website and look at the pictures of the rooms. Every one is unique, and if you see a part...

We were so excited to offer one of our Baby Moon packages to this lovely couple. Glad they had a "last blast" before the big day. We've asked them to send some photos of their newest edition to the family and we hope to see them here again for some R&R, which they will need....Congratulations and best wishes!

I just returned from my second stay at Avenue Inn. I have been to New Orleans many times and have stayed in a variety of places there but now I will only stay at the Avenue Inn. Joe and Bebe are lovely friendly people that make you feel very much at home. The location is perfect for strolling around uptown or hopping on the streetcar to venture downtown, into the French Quarter or to Audubon Park and Tulane's campus. I've only ever stayed in one particular room because I keep requesting it as it's tastefully appointed and comfortable. There are water bottles, coffee and snacks provided all day and night in the dining room. Joe and Bebe are extra helpful regarding entertainment and dining options which are endless in New Orleans.

When you think of travel you generally don’t think of home but at the Avenue B&B Joe and Bebe will change your view of travel. Set in an old mansion style home you will be treated to true southern hospitality. Joe meets you at the front door, checks you in and gives you a quick rundown of the rules of the home. Rules are a poor choice of words but unless your 18 and there for Mardi Gras and parting 24/7 you will find his “library hours” to be about mutual respect of everyone staying in the B&B and nothing more. Joe will provide you as much or as little information as you need. My wife and I were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and were thrilled with our experience. Joe’s recommendations of restaurants and tours surpassed all our expectations. There is a large courtyard and garden area in the front with tables and chairs to relax in as well as rocking chairs on the large porch. The best part is their location on St Charles St which is on the trolley car route. In addition there is an excellent seafood restaurant and pub just around the corner with a beignet and coffee shop next door.
The home itself is full of old world charm and character. A great continental breakfast starts the day with a snack tower to keep you going should you feel you need for a snack. We stayed on the 3rd floor room 18, which we highly recommend. The bed was comfortable and each room has a private bathroom for greater comfort. On a safety note the home has fire escapes, a monitored fire alarm and is sprinkler which is unheard in a heritage home.
We loved our vacation and we will return and when we do we will definitely stay with Joe and Bebe again.

Room Tip: Room 18 is great with raised sitting area by window

I had such a great time. The Innkeepers Joe and Bebe are so sweet and friendly and they have maintained the property very well. The rooms are cleaned promptly every morning. The staff was very friendly as well. Continental breakfast is included in the stay and makes things very convenient. The location is excellent, a street car runs from right in front of the Inn that takes you straight to Canal Street. The decor is very Victorian and comfortable. I am usually away from home and it makes a huge difference having warm and caring individuals around! I highly recommend this place!! :)

This lovely guest was here on a convention assignment but we wanted her to feel comfortable and enjoy what our city has to offer. After hours we helped her with directions, restaurants and things to do. It apparently all worked out well and we are so humbled by her wonderful feedback about us and the Inn. She promised to come back for a non-business trip. We are holding her to that commitment and we have our restaurant list ready to go!

We visited the Avenue Inn Bed & Breakfast the 2 nd week in October 2012 with our good friends the Kennedy's on their Anniversary. Joe & Bebe were great hosts and a wealth of knowledge. The Superior Seafood & Oyster Bar is 2 blocks away and has great meals or a little more casual is the New Orleans Hamburger and Seafood Co. right next door and a great place for a nightcap or a meal. We caught the streetcar right outside the door on the Boulevard, great for sightseeing or getting to "The Quarter". Joe booked all our tours for us and we were picked up at the front door each time. I have never been one for tours but I am now convinced that it is the way to go and well worth the $$. We ended every tour by getting dropped off in the French Quarter or downtown. We then took the RTA back "home" at night. As far is our safety, we never felt threatened or unsafe at anytime. Common sense is the best guideline. The citizens of New Orleans are among the friendliest we have ever come across in our travels. Things not to miss;
- The French Quarter
- Plantation Tour
- City Tour
- Swamp Tour
- Lord Chaz Ghost Tour
- World War II Museum
- Blues, Jazz & Seafood Festivals

Thank you Joe & Bebe & New Orleans for a great vacation!!!

P.S. Back to the Gym. The FOOD is awesome.

We had so much fun with these two couples. They were open to all of our suggestions and they just had a blast. Our goal is for everyone visiting us to enjoy the city in the same fashion and we try hard to make that happen for those who want assistance. We are looking forward for these folks to come back and visit again. There are many more restaurants and venues for them to explore!
