Cool spot near Frenchman

4.8 on April 07, 2013

I put outstanding for the food but this is not a breakfast offering b&b....but you wouldn't want that because there are awesome breakfast spots a few blocks away. Food in NOLA is supreme. The Inn is an amazing value for a really sweet spot with the nicest staff ever and in a really great spot. A quick stroll to Frenchman and pleasant walk to French Quarter. We wouldn't stay anywhere else!!!


Wecoming, inexpensive, unpretentious, clean and comfortable

We've just had the most enjoyable stay at the Creole Inn for 11 nights. Bottom line is, we would be back in an instant. With backroom bars, cosy cafes and righteous restaurants all close by, as well documented on websites. The innkeepers, Kim & Charley, were most welcoming on arrival and more than helpful throughout, with any problems quickly resolved. The owners, Silas & Ray, have made a good move, in appointing them. In booking the stay with Gayl couldn't be faulted. free WiFi and the Inn's guest computer is a big bonus to food reviews and gig guides. The Inn's website was pitched just right & we were made well aware of what to expect. A sound night's sleep in a comfy bed, but with NO hotel atmosphere or pretenses, no breakfasts, far enough from the hubbub & hullabaloo (the battleground of Bacchanalia). But, close enough to walk to , or stagger back from, if need be. Having been to New Orleans many times over countless years, and experiencing Inns, B+B's, plus modest, boutique and select hotels, from the CBD to the Quarter, from Decatur to N.Rampart and on Bourbon, all have been noisy in the early hours, with the traffic of all night delivery & garbage removal, with the occasional fight & the odd gunshot. - even the Garden District has the all night street car trundling rattle & hum (U2 can experience this). At the Inn, the distant sounds of the train toots shunting and the ship's whistle floating off the river a more welcome and preferable lullaby. Yes, some parts of the Inn are worn & weather-beaten, but with Silas & Ray employing Charley, with his experience as a master craftsman,to effect repairs & maintenance, and with Silas & Ray seemingly being pro-active in modifying the Inn - this evident in the recent installation of the new A/C system - the place can only go from strength to strength.


Great Deal and Location.

Clean and nice rooms. The location is very good as it is close to Frenchman Street and not far from the French Quarter. Very good restaurants nearby. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Of course the price is a real bargain.


service was great

Could have been a little cleaner but the great service made up for that... I bring my own cleaning supplies and sheets anyway....


Bed and Breakfast this is not.....

Please DO NOT book this lovely INN if you are expecting a B & B expericence. Not sure why this is listed under B & B. Please read all information on the Inn closely. We did, and we loved it. We were able to book the entire Inn for a week (we made plans a year in advance). What a great bargin. We had a great family experience, would do it again in a heart beat and would highly recommend to freinds and family. Gayl was/is great. She is no longer the inn keeper but does take care of bookings. She received a promotion within the company --- congrats to Gayl for a job well done. We were the lucky group to welcome Kim and Charlie as new Inn keepers. They are very friendly and I'm sure will do a great job as well. Thanks to all who made our stay great. This is a wonderful little place, off the beaten path. If you don't mind walking I'm sure you will love it too. Our stay was 6-18 thru 6-22. D's bunch from Texas
