When you step up to this B&B you will not expect what you find behind the building and through the gate. It is like your own little oasis in a busy city. The owner keeps the grounds and rooms very clean and well maintained there is breakfast in the mornings. He treats his guests with respect and expects the same.

I'm hesitant to write a review as I'd love to keep this my own personal secret paradise. lol - Had a fantastic stay, comfy rooms, perfect hosts and just a few blocks from Frenchmen Street. The mid afternoon and evening dips in the pool were a refreshing pick me up and the grounds could not have been more beautiful. Ed and Jackie took great care of us and it felt like home for the time I was there. Nice little continental and hot coffee in the morning to boot!

I stayed at the Lions Inn during and around Jazzfest. You could not ask for a better place to stay, rooms are very comfortable and the location is nice and quiet.The breakfast was excellent. The French quarter is a short walk down the road and the location is close to The St Roch Market and all the great bars on St Claude ave. Ed and his staff go out of their way to make sure everyone is happy.It was great to lounge by the pool and gardens to recover from Jazzfest.I was really happy with my stay at The Lions Inn.

We were very glad the NBA all star game was on the Sunday when we arrived in New Orleans, as it made us look at alternative places to stay other than the usual downtown towers. We came across this B&B in an alternate accomodations search. Their website is very old and didn't allow us to book online. However, we called down and booked no problem. We are very gad we did! It is in an older part of the city, still with a french quarter look and little places to eat, drink and shop nearby. Its in the middle of a residential block so nice and quiet at night. The room we had was very nice, big bed, TV and Air, but it did have a shared bathroom. There was only one other couple sharing it, so it wasn't a big deal. However, the grounds! Wonderful! This fellow keeps a very nice back yard
