We looked into staying here for our entire New Orleans visit but most rooms were booked up so we could only stay for two nights that had a vacancy and stayed a block away for a few nights at a B&B. We were very pleased with the Creole Inn. Some older reviews criticized it's cleanliness, particularly in one of the rooms, but we saw nothing to worry about at all. It was immaculate. The outside of the building is rather ordinary but the inside is nice and cozy and looks very nice.
I can only guess that it is often booked up since it is so affordable. Why? No breakfast for one and in some ways it might be somewhat more simple than fancy B&Bs that come with loads of bells and whistles. We were completely satisfied.
The Inn is in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood that is directly east of the French Qtr. and the Inn was a handful of blocks into the Marigny. That helped to make it quiet for sleep. There are only five guest rooms and three are two room suites. Ours was Memories on the second floor and the room itself was small but we did not intend to spend much time in the room aside from sleeping. The bed was very good and the room had ample closet space, a dresser, chair, mini fridge,TV and radio, and a good bathroom. One reason we wanted to stay there was that it was as affordable as hostels but had the qualities of a nice B&B. Or B&C since there was no breakfast but they did offer coffee and hot water for making hot chocolate and a variety of teas in an entry room. There were places for breakfast a block or two away in the neighborhood and more along Frenchmen Street closer to the French Qtr. Frenchmen was also lined with clubs featuring music each evening.
Gayl was the pleasant manager. She offered to tell us about the neighborhood and to answer our questions about New Orleans. She provided a computer so that we could print off our boarding passes the day before we had to leave.
We felt safe walking through the Marigny in the late evening. We give the Creole Inn a very good recommendation, especially if you are looking for a quiet place to stay that is as affordable as you are likely to find in expensive New Orleans. Affordable, clean, and comfortable.
