Great Stay!

5 on September 23, 2016

We had a great stay at the Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast! We stayed there from Sunday, September 18th through Thursday morning, September 22nd. Joe and Bebe were great hosts answering all our questions about where to eat, what to do and the best deals on Bourbon Street. We didn’t miss a morning breakfast because there was so much to choose from!! Having the trolley across the street to take us to the French Quarter meant that we didn’t use our rental car except to get to the Inn and to go back to the airport. I highly recommend the Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast in the Garden District for your next stay in NOLA!


Wonderful Garden District Stay

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay while in New Orleans. The Avenue was a stop on the St Charles street car! We parked our car once and never moved it until we checked out 4 days later. We had such fun riding the street cars everywhere! Out first floor room my was immaculate and quiet and comfortable. The breakfasts were all delicious, and Joe and Bebe helped guide us to where we wanted to go. We highly recommend the Avenue and wouldn't stay anywhere else.

We have stayed here twice while visiting Tulane and this is the only place we will stay when we come back. The home is beautiful and Joe and Bebe make you feel like you are an old friend coming back to visit. Each visit was wonderful and the home and neighborhood are very quiet and peaceful. This is the perfect place to stay if you want to experience the excitement and fun of New Orleans, but retreat to a quiet, peaceful room to sleep or for downtime. Thanks Joe and Bebe!


Wonderful Anniversary

5 on August 01, 2016

We stayed at Avenue Inn for our first trip to NOLA and our 10th anniversary. Our stay was exceptional. Upon arriving we were warmly greeted by the owners and instantly made to feel at home. When they found out it was our anniversary trip we were upgraded to bigger room! The house itself is charming and retains much of the original character, but with modern amenities. It’s very clean and well taken care of. We drove down and had safe off street parking, but didn’t use our car because getting in and around the city was a breeze since a street car stop was right outside the front door. Although breakfast was continental, it was very well done with a variety of different items to eat every morning. They have a beautiful front patio where we ate breakfast every morning. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone.


Basking in the "Old South"

Loved sitting on the veranda watching the trolley cars and all the people going by. The pastries and coffee cakes for breakfast were "melt in your mouth". Service when needed was immediate and the staff were kind and accommodating.


Perfect for our Anniversary!

We stayed at the Avenue Inn in July 2016 for our Anniversary! Great B&B ... the Innkeepers were so nice ... lovely old New Orleans home with the Innkeepers' furniture from the deep South! Right on the trolley line. Off street parking. A MUST STAY!

Loved this place!! It's the ideal place for an authentic experience of New Orleans...lovely home, beautifully comfortable room, awesome porch and it is super easy to get anywhere - street car right out front but also easy to walk so many places!
