I will give this place 3 stars. I loved the location with streetcars and bus tours right out front. Loved all the eateries close by too. I love old buildings and love the charm of this one. I feel safe staying here and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was good. Now....there's the room. The bed...

We stayed here before flying out of NO airport. The staff was nice, the location- pretty good with a streetcar stop directly in front. A great little pizza joint next door and a nice little courtyard. Now, the room we were put in could really use some help. Because of the age and charm I can look past a lot....

We booked the accommodation for the free parking which was a real bonus. The streetcar outside was really handy, though it's a nice walk into town too. It wasn't the cleanest place I've stayed though the rooms were full of character and breakfast was nice.

We stayed 3 nights. The room was musky but I think that was down to continual air con use, some aspect of cleanliness lacked in each corner of the room, but it really wasn't that bad on reflection and as you are out and about it doesn't really seem to matter. It was convenient for the price, reception staff friendly...

I wish I had more nice things to say about this Inn. The location is great and breakfast is included as long as you don't mind drinking out of styrofoam cups. Breakfast is an assortment of breads, Cheerios and hard boiled eggs. It has a nice inner outdoor courtyard as well which you can sit in. It's also right on...

This place was great. The staff was wonderful and the place is definitely historic and huge inside, they have a little courtyard for breakfast and a picture perfect porch with rocking chairs for your morning coffee. They offer a small breakfast but in new orleans it's all you need! It's pet friendly (which we didn't need but thought was great)...

We do have a nice setting and being close but not in the French Quarter is why we get so many return guests. We appreciate your kind words and honest observations. Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel! We hope you will come back and visit us soon! Warm regards, Richard Gillespie General Manager

The Historic Streetcar Inn made us feel right at home from the very first phone call. They allowed our dogs to stay with us, which was easy given the green patches along the trolly line on St. Charles. Having the trolley stop just in front of the inn made life easy for everywhere we wanted to go. (buy a pass...

For the price and the location, it is alright. Only street parking. Older hotel. Room was smaller then expected with a very little TV. Room was near the back entrance for the rest of the hotel so there was a lot of noise.
