Great place to stay in the Marigny

4.2 on April 15, 2015

Spent a total of 6 nights at the Creole Inn. It was exactly as advertised - clean, no nonsense and no-frill. The onsite caretaker couple of Charley and Kim were both very friendly and helpful. I called ahead and arranged for an early drop-off of luggage until check in time. Kim took a few minutes to point out some interesting locations in the Quarter and provide a local map for me so I roamed the French Quarter until check-in. The neighbourhood was quiet and comfortable but also an easy 10-minute walk to the French Quarter. There were also several local bars and cafes for the various meals. Kim and Charley know where they all are and were a great source of information. Simple accommodations, convenient location and good value.

Sweet Dreams at Creole Inn

We didn't stay in the Sweet Dreams Suite - but I felt this is an appropriate title.This little place is in a safe neighborhood, and not pretentious in any way. Kim & Charley are wonderful, polite and informative. Great value, and the place is very clean. I grew up in an old TN home and I know how much work these people do to keep this quaint little peaceful home nice and clean. Last year I stayed in one of the major hotels in New Orleans with every amenity you could think of and you better believe, I paid dearly for months after I left. This was a welcome relief to feeling like I was stuck in the movie the Matrix last time. Don't get me wrong, the Matrix is impressive but I want to sleep someplace I can feel like I know where I am when I wake up, and don't have to pay extra for the special effects. Very welcome with down home attitude and friendliness. I will be back!

Great place to stay

My husband and I stayed here for a couple nights in May, it was wonderful. The rooms are a little tacky but in a completely charming way, and everything was clean. The location was great-- the coffee shop right down the street has great breakfast, and you're within walking distance from the French Quarter, which has some rather wonderful dining options. I'd recommend this to anyone that wants a nice, safe place to stay without paying crazy high prices. I'd take this over a hotel room any day.

thanks Creole Inn.

New Orleans best kept secret!!

We stayed there in July. The caretakers are the nicest people you want to meet. They were very informative about the area. You have no need for a car. you are in the middle of everything.. Me and my family will stay nowhere else.

Great Place to Stay

Stayed here April 21 - April 23 2014. Clean rooms, nice people, reasonable price, convenient location, and great neighborhood. What more can you want? I will return.

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

4.6 on October 12, 2012

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....
