Arriving after midnight, I thought that I landed in a nightmare. Yes, it is old, worn out, lacks electrical outlets, wall paper is peeling, halls are narrow, carpets are tread bare, furniture is supported on bricks, and floors are uneven; but the staff members are very kind and attentive. They keep it as clean as possible, but there is only so much that can be done about cleaning OLD. My mattress was comfy and new. There was always hot water in my roomy bath and it is very quiet. I felt very safe from the crazies you see in NOLA, once I was inside the building. The owners priority is to provide a safe, welcoming, affordable B&B vs. charging more for the rooms in order to fix the place up. With no TVs and spoty wi-fi, it's a perfect place to spend time drawing, writing or sleeping.
