When I travel and go on vacations I like to stay in places that are either nicer than my own home or that are equivalent to my own home. Unfortunately the room we stayed in was far worse than any of my own homes. And let me go ahead and say that I have a great appreciation for Victorian style... More

This is a great place to stay while in New Orleans. I can't say enough about how friendly and helpful Lydia and Ora were during our stay. It's a pretty hotel with a long, beautiful corridor that runs from the front of the house to the back. The room was clean and cozy. We had a corner room (room 16),... More

Thank you Lydia, I felt at home! When I travel, I always try to stay with a local family from the area that I visit. My first stay at the Avenue Garden Hotel was just that, a home atmosphere with southern hospitality! The hotel host, Lydia, showed me to my room which was simple but nicely furnished, reminding me of... More

The Avenue Garden Hotel is at a great location in NOLA. Positioned near the intersection of St. Charles and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, and on the St. Charles Street Car Line, the Hotel is easy to find. From this vantage point it is easy to get to all the major attractions in NOLA. There are also plenty restaurants (fast... More

From the moment we entered the Avenue Garden Hotel, we were greeted and treated with great care! My sister's sudden death brought us to New Orleans. Lydia, the owner, assisted us in every way she could to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. The rooms were nice and clean. The decor is absolutely "New Orleans"! The coffee was made fresh...

By far, worst experience of my trip to New Orleans. I know you get what you pay for and I don't expect a lot from a budget room. However, let me list the ways this place disappointed even me: 15 or so huge, Louisiana-size flies on the wall (probably due to the ill-fitting door), AC that never cooled the room,... More

To the reviewer, and others who take the time to read these reviews... First of all, the room that the writer stayed in was one that we use very frequently. It is one of our smaller rooms, however, it's a very nice room. In fact, it has one of the nicer baths in the hotel, as well as a fridge,... More

This motel was a wonderful place to stay. We enjoyed it greatly. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was convenient to Garden District and French Quarter. The motel was very clean and comfortable. Some have shown picures and said the motel was in poor condition. In my opinion, there were few imperfections. The few I saw were... More

This turned out to be a great location for us to strike out to either the Garden District, Zoo, or French Quarter. (We bought 5-day streetcar passes for $20.) The room was clean and well-kept. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and make us feel welcome. Even though it's right on St. Charles, we didn't have... More

We stayed here for 3 days at the end of a convention - now I must say that we had been at a 4 star hotel in the French Quarter, so its a bit of a shock to move to a 2 star...however, once we settled in, we really liked it. We especially liked the little courtyard in which to... More

The Avenue Garden Hotel was perfect for us. We were visitng my daughter at Tulane so the ride there in our car was just a few minutes. To visit the Quarter we walked out the door and the St Charles streetcar was right there. Parking at the hotel was on-street for free and never (even during Jazzfest weekend) did we... More
