Old Historic Creole Inn
Ranked #29 of 141 New Orleans B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 20, 2011

This was a great place to stay. It had everything we needed: great beds, refrigerator, internet, coffee, TV, common area, back patio and helpful host. We were coming to New Orleans on a budget and so glad we found this place. It's located a 15 min walk from the French Quarter in an artsy residential neighbourhood. We rented a car and had free parking on the street.

We were met by Gayle, the Inn's host. She is down-to-earth, approachable and gave us tons of information for our stay.

The rooms are simple, clean and had everything we needed. The beds were amazing to sleep on.

If you're looking for a no-frills, clean, affordable get-away in New Orleans...this is it.

Thanks!

Creole Inn is a wonderful place to stay. Instantly you have the warm and welcome feeling that you are staying with old friends. If you want luxury, dont stay there, its not that kind of place. What it offers is the downhome feeling of staying in the South with everything you need close by. The rooms are lovely, plenty of space for 2 (in the memories suite), and a great location for Frenchman street, or a 10 minute stroll over to the french quarter. Wouldnt reccommend a rental car, you dont need one there and we thought it was a hassle to even have one. (which was also wisley reccommended by Gayl, the innkeeper, who is always available and so friendly.)
The coffee is ready when you get up in the morning, the price is amazing, and we can't wait to go back and visit again. We will definitely stay at the Creole Inn.

We loved staying at the Creole Inn.... Gayl was super friendly and helpful with insights into the local neighborhood. Our room was called "Memories" on the second floor. Room was cozy, with just the stuff we needed: super comfy bed, a mini fridge, and an abundance of fluffy towels, in a clean room. The courtyard is neat, with a huge live oak for a neighbor. It was nice to sit out there in the quiet, have a couple of beers and chill.
If you're not used to old houses, this may not be a place for you. This house is a great example of what the real houses look like in New Orleans: shows some sign of age, but still gloriously holding up with charm!
The neighborhood is fantastic and quiet, with easy walking to Frenchmen St. and the French Quarter. Gayl recommended a restaurant/store/laundry mat that was just a block away, called Schiro's. Fantastic food, with great New Orleans style ambience.
The Creole Inn is a definite must stay if you're wanting to have a holiday that's as un-touristy as you can get. We hope to go back soon!

Three of us stayed in the Cowboy Suite for one night and really enjoyed our stay. The beds were comfortable they had just put in a new sink in the bathroom. Gayle the in keeper was very nice and helpful about the neighborhood. The room was quiet and clean, plenty of hot water in the shower. I would stay there again for the money it can't be beat.

I would recommend the Creole Inn for anyone interested ina genuine New Orleans holiday. The Inn was charming, the furnishings lovely , the beds outstandingly comfortable. Gayl, the innkeeper, was happy to help us with information and any service we needed.

In the 4 yrs I have been going to NOLA for Halloween, we have stayed in a different part of New Orleans and loved it! The Garden District, Canal Street, the Quarter and this time just a few minutes from the Frenchmen area.
I enjoyed the Creole Inn very much. It was like staying at a friend's house. Gayl was very sweet and helpful. The bed was cozy, the room was clean (We stayed in the Cowboy suite) and the neighborhood was quiet. It was a 10 minute walk to Frenchmen St, which is where we hung out at night. Another 5 minutes took you to the edge of the Quarter (Esplanade St).
I would stay here again for sure! I'm not sure why other visitors had a bad stay? The website explains in great detail what to expect and I was not disappointed.

I stayed here with my 82 year old mother and sister. We wanted a budget B&B but we expected cleanliness--at least.
Our "Old Europe Suite" consisted of two tiny rooms. Mother got the 1st one- with a queen bed. Sister and I had to walk through her room from entry door to get to an even tinier back room with two hard, cramped bunk bed sets. There was no ventilation, AC or otherwise in these rooms. My bunk was propped up with a cinderblock! There was dirt and dust under the beds, mildew in the shower and a total lack of charm. DO NOT be fooled by the photo of lobby on website. You won't be able to turn around in your room. Even the back patio was dirty-the table was covered with debris and the whole place has has a general air of neglect and slovenliness. There may be bedbugs.
I would never recommend this to anyone, friend or enemy!
