5 Nights of Fun!

4.2 on July 13, 2016

We booked a 2 room suite at Creole Inn. The price was half of most other lodging in NOLA, and put us close to Frenchman Street for nightlife. Creole Inn is barebones-- that is obvious from the first time you book a stay. But the inn keepers are charming and hospitable, the rooms are clean and well maintained. Common areas are well lit, clean, and the location is tremendous. Franklin and Horns are a few blocks away for meals. St Roch Market is worth the trip, and orange couch for coffee is a must!


NOLA family trip

We were looking for an authentic experience, not to be pampered or spend a lot on a room we will only be sleeping in.


Loved it

Like staying at an older Aunty's house. The price is wonderful as is the location. Everyone is so friendly. This is not the Four Seasons, this is a charming older home. No breakfast is served, but for the price, no problem. We will be staying there again.


As Always, Excellent!!

Kim and Charlie are the best innkeepers in NOLA.


Amazing location and price

I kind of hope this place stays a secret because it's such a hidden gem! From the moment we were shown our room right up until check out, Kim and Charlie were exceedingly helpful with recommendations of where to eat and drink. The most amazing fried chicken is less than 5 minutes from the inn and is 2 pieces for 1 dollar. Crazy amazing and I'm not talking about the price;) This place suited our needs perfectly and we will definitely be back. We have already referred friends and family:)


The Creole Inn rocks!

Great Stay in NOLA

Excellent value and in a great location. Faubourg Marigny is close enough to walk anywhere in the French Quarter, but there was so much to do and see and eat and drink in the Marigny that this was our best NOLA experience so far. Kim was a big help as we got checked in and she provided a lot of information about the neighborhood.
