Reviewed July 9, 2013

Service and cleanliness here were really awesome. The bed was really comfortable. The location is really great- it is quiet; yet very close to the action- 2 blocks to Frenchman street, 2 blocks to Bourbon street, and about 4 blocks to the streetcar. The price was really decent too. Also there were nice places to sit the in the courtyard and a jacuzzi. We didn't have a problem with lack of A/C like other reviewers.

A couple of problems prevent this from being a 5 star experience: first, we didn't know that their parking lot for $20/day was full so our parking situation was pretty terrible (we drove to NOLA). It was a festival weekend. There weren't any other lots in French quarter, so we were left to move the car every 2 hours and then we could leave it 7pm-7am. The other thing was that a few of the other people staying at our resort were really loud (shouting, ice chest door slamming) at all hours. Once again it's hard to discern if this is because it's a festival weekend.

Room Tip: 2nd floor might be quieter?

Thank you for the great feedback regarding your recent stay with us over the Fourth of July holiday weekend. You are correct in noting that New Orleans, in general, can be a bit louder and festive during holiday / festival weekends. That being said, we do our best to manage any excessive noise that may be caused by guests who are staying at our property. We are pleased to hear you were able to take advantage of our private courtyard and jacuzzi and found your guestroom accommodations to be so comfortable. We apologize for the inconvenience you experienced in regards to parking, as our lot does tend to fill up much quicker during holiday and festival weekends. Unfortunately parking is at a premium in New Orleans and we do our best to assist in finding alternative parking options for our guests, in the event that our lot is full (as it was when you were staying with us). Thank you again for sharing your experience with us and we hope to have you back again at any of our French Quarter Guest Houses properties!

This Inn is located in a quiet street in between crazy Bourbon St. and Royal St. with its beautiful stores. It is a small quaint hotel. The beds were very comfortable and the room was nicely decorated. This is a very old building so take that into consideration. What some call "charm" others will consider just old. I found the building to be very charming. The a/c worked fine in the room but the bathroom was very hot. We stayed in the second floor and the stairs were kind of steep so I would prefer a first floor room next time. We were there for 3 nights and all the personnel we met was friendly and kind. Perfect location and great price!

Room Tip: I would have preferred a first floor room that faces the courtyard since the stairs are steep and we...

We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the Inn on Ursulines and found our prices and location to be so great! As the Inn on Ursulines is a historic property it does have a lot of charm, as you mentioned. However, all of our guestrooms are newly renovated and provide all of the upgraded amenities one would find in a larger chain hotel (that would most likely be lacking that charm). We appreciate your kind feedback and hope to see you again at any of our French Quarter Guest Houses properties upon your next visit to Nola!

I was in room 13 which is up some narrow stairs so beware if you have big heavy bags. Room was small but bed comfortable. It was very warm when I stayed. The a/C was adequate in the sleeping area, but the bathroom was extremely hot like a sauna. The best thing is the location within easy walking of French Quarter, and it's period charm. Good price for the location. Desk staff very helpful.

We spent 3 days at the Inn and overall were very pleased. The location is perfect – close enough to Bourbon Street and the French Quarter but far enough away to not be bothered by the noise. We had a first floor interior room which was nice. Only problem was that the air conditioning wasn’t working. Carrie Sue did everything she could to supply fans and gave us a nice discount upon leaving. Thankfully the weather was 5-10 degrees cooler than normal for the time of year. Assuming they improve the a/c to cover all the rooms for warmer days we highly recommend.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for an interior room. 2nd floor if available but we didn't hear any other gue...

I booked this stay strickly from the website photo's and we all know that can be tricky. I was wonderfully surprised that the place exceeded my expectations. Check in was easy, room was confortable and location was perfect. We could walk a couple of minutes to Bourbon St action, but we were far enough away not to have the late night noise. It's a quick walk over to Frenchmen St. to catch real blues music and just a couple blocks from French Market. Hot tub was a nice touch after a full day of walking around town and a full night of blues music.

Room Tip: All rooms are within a courtyard. Not a lot of extra space to put things. No place to set a suitcase...

My husband and I just returned from a weekend at the inn on ursulines and we were completely thrilled with the property. The location could not have been better nestled between Bourbon and Royal, it seemed we were only a 5 or 10 minute walk to just about anywhere. It made it great for returning to our room several times during the day to rest or drop off shopping bags. The room was so unique. The door to enter the room was the old french doors from many years ago. The inside of the room was immactulatley clean! There was no evidence of any mildew as had been reported in previous reviews. The room was the perfect combination of old and modern. The front dest staff were very friendly and helpful. The one thing to keep in mind when booking is the room location. We had a street front room, meaning the door to the room was along the main street. We felt as if we had our own little place in New Orleans and quickly forgot we were even at a hotel.... this just added to the charm. However, the street rooms can be a bit noisy until about 3 a.m. and again at 7 a.m. when the garbage truck, street cleaners pass by. This really didn't bother us, but if you're a light sleeper, you may want to book a courtyard room.
Again, fantastic room, fantastic location! Can't wait to go again!

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, ask for a courtyard room.
