Wonderfal Oasis in New Orleans

4.4 on July 16, 2015

My wife and I spent a week at the Green House. Very convenient to most everything. Our hosts were very kind and attentive. It is far enough away from the craziness in the French Quarter but close enough to be a quick cab ride or walk if you want the exercise. We had a great week and hope to return. Highly recommend. The pool is clothing optional so if that bothers you other choices may be appropriate.


Great Location

Friendly and helpful staff. Within walking distance of many attractions and the Trolley.


Good location, awesome staff, underwhelming breakfast

3.6 on June 07, 2015

Great location within walking distance of many restaurants, shopping, bars, and a brewery that has a rotating schedule of food trucks. Room was comfortable, pool is a great bonus, staff is really helpful. Very disappointing breakfast- cold cereal and shelf stable muffins. Overall, a good experience but it could be greatly improved by offering more variety and fresher breakfast items.


Laid back in the Big Easy

4.2 on June 02, 2015

This B&B is not a museum for you to stay in, worried about where you can put your drink or how much noise you are making in the middle of the day. It's a totally laid-back, guest-centric inn run by some very mellow fellows. The breakfast is Continental, the pool European, and the atmosphere just right for this least-troubled or hung up of cities. We had a great time, and will stay here next time we come to NOLA, without question. It's in the middle of everything - Garden District, Downtown, the French Quarter all within easy reach. Thanks, for a wonderful stay!


Memorial Weekend

Wonderful 1840 Inn with beautiful tropical pool, hot tub, deck, seating areas. There was easy access to transportation, safe and secure parking for our car and we were in walking distance to World War II Museum and restaurants. What a nice relaxing weekend we had; can't wait to do it again. Alan and Jessie were very friendly and helpful. Thank you!!!


A Great Getaway!!

Close to all the action..(8 minutes)..yet far enough away to relax, by a quiet pool and hot tub! Great staff, comfortable room and good eats nearby!


Great B&B in a beautiful part of New Orlenas

4.4 on May 20, 2015

This is a well run Bed and Breakfast. Rooms are large, beautifully decorated and comfortable. Frank and Jesse are friendly and accommodating and know the city which makes a visit even better. Third stay and we'll be back again.


Great place in NOLA

We stayed at the Inn in May. It is very comfortable and the pool is amazing! The beds are comfortable and the inn is very well kept. I will definitely stay there again!


Nice Location

Nice location, within walking distance to many restaurants. Frank and Jessie were delightful. Offered good suggestions for meals and sightseeing.


Disappointed in NOLA

2.0 on May 05, 2015

Considering that the reviews on of this inn on several websites were quite complimentary, we were very disappointed. The Green House Inn is a restored vintage home that could use some additional upgrades. The room we had was dingy with a low ceiling and only one small window in the door to the back garden. We were on the first floor and could easily hear the other guests in the hallway as well as our neighbors that returned to their room at 2:30 AM. It was a rainy weekend and the leaves that were tracked into the main rooms on Friday were still there on Sunday when we left. Unfortunately the breakfast did not even meet the standards of a complimentary breakfast at a motel chain. The staff member we met was friendly and helpful but that couldn't make up for the lackluster accommodations.

Innkeeper Response
We are sorry to learn that your recent stay with us was not a satisfactory to you. Had we been made aware during your visit, we may have been able to move you into a quieter room on the 2nd floor, or at least strongly speak to the guests in your neighboring room. We have met with our housekeeping team to address the daily cleaning of common areas, especially during inclement weather, as occurred during your stay. Unfortunately, licensed B&B's in New Orleans are prohibited from serving hot meals by Municipal Code. We offer a free cold Continental breakfast that includes a selection of muffins, croissants, bead, cold cereals, fresh fruits, yogurt, boiled eggs, waffles, orange juice, coffee, and hot teas. We are quite fortunate to have several good restaurants offering hot breakfasts within walking distance of our Inn. We look at all feedback from our guests as opportunities for improvement. We appreciate you for your stay with us and your candor. Sincerely, The staff of The Green House Inn
