Funtastic!!!My husband and I stayed a week at the Creole Gardens. We had so much fun and loved staying at this bed and breakfast. Our room was very comfortable, quaint, and clean. The Creole Gardens is located in the Garden District so after our delicious breakfast we would walk and look at the historic homes.The staff was so friendly and helpful. The cook, Annie, added so much to our stay at the bed and breakfast. We looked forward to her delicious breakfast as well as our visit with her.We were sad to leave our new friends. When we return to New Orleans, we will be coming back to the Creole Gardens.

After spending almost a week in the quarter with a group of people, a friend and I wanted to check out the garden district. We had originally booked the st vincents, but after following an out of date guide book that told us to check in here we found ourselves swept up by good folks offering a less than modest disapproaval of the st vincents, but rightly so. The creole gardens was great, the staff was very friendly, and the room, well...jesus would approve. :)

Thanks for a nice stay. One thought though, the courtyard could use a cat.

I am unsure who writes many of these reviews but the same incorrect information is passed on over and over. I just returned and I can assure you that while this place is indeed one block from St. Charles, it's in a "no mans land" area. No streetcars, not near the Quarter (a ridiculous claim) and not even near the real Garden District, which is several blocks down Prytania. Outrageous.

Our first time to visit New Orleans for the Mardi Gras 2006. The staff were very friendly and accomodating. The breakfast is typical pastries and drinks(milk,coffee,juice).The rooms were clean and tidy. We stayed in what is called a Mansion room. It has antique furnishings. What is best about the place is that they welcome pets. We did not have to pay any deposits. The downside is that there is no guest parking only street parking. There are two more houses that are undergoing renovations due to hurricane damage which will have available guest parking. Overall, it is a convenient place to stay if you have pets.

Loved it....it's a really cool, fun place, very close to the Quarter, a block from St Charles, and the atmosphere is just want I wanted to find....slightly artsy, colorful, informal and friendly. This is not a corporate, institutional hotel, nor is it a boring stuffy B and B.... and they take pets! I'm glad I discovered it. PS Make sure you hang out a while in the courtyard under the banana trees-----this is a great place to have a drink and meet other locals and out of towners.

My wife and 2 kids stayed at the Creole Gardens a few weeks ago passing through town to visit some relatives who needed some help with their house....we considered ourselves lucky to get a room since the city is very full right now with workers and evacuees and didn't know what to expect. Were we pleasantly surprised! The whole place seems to have been hand decorated by someone with amazing attention to detail (the bed was more comfortable than our super luxury one at home) and is really kid friendly (unusual for a small bed and breakfast type of hotel)----our kids went nuts over the big courtyard filled with banana trees and our brightly colored room. The people working there are very friendly and make you feel like you're visiting them at their own home. We're definitely coming back.

It is nice of Creole Gardens to give rooms to Katrina evacuees but the inn itself is lacking. Noisy street, very subpar guest room and simply rude ownership make for a less-than-perfect stay. I would never recommend the area to out-of-town guests as it's really not near anything, especially with the Saint Charles streetcars out of service indefinitely.

Stay in the French Quarter, tourists!
