every imaginable item you need from breakfast to mosquito spray and umbrellas are available. Coffee was made each morning fresh and delicious. The guest rooms were not funky, but warm and inviting.! Definitely will return!

Loved our stay!

Great Value in a Great Location

My husband and I stayed here on our first trip to New Orleans. The location was great. A quick walk into the French Quarter and right around the corner from all the action on Frenchman St. The place was super clean. Room was a little small but we really didn't need it to be huge. You are not hanging out in your room on vacation like this. The bathrooms were really clean and huge with plenty of room for storage of luggage. The owners were very nice and stocked the place with everything you can think of from bug spray to sunscreen to umbrellas. Beautiful backyard sitting area makes for a calm peaceful oasis. Would definitely stay here again the next time we come for a visit.

Crescent City Guest House is perfect for a short get away. It is fantastically well-located in the Marigny with easy access to the Bywater and French Quarter. The owners are responsive to any questions and very nice. The rooms are clean and the fact that breakfast is self-serve means that you can get up and out at your own convenience. It's the most reasonably-priced room in the area. I would come here again.

Just like the comfort of home!! The room was very clean and well appointed.

Great location and value

Large rooms which open to a very large common area. A fully stocked refrigerator provides all the breakfast (and snacking) that you need. This B&B is in an excellent location, about 3 blocks from the French Quarter, but on a quiet street away from the noise. The hosts are very accommodating and the price is an excellent value for the area.

Fabulous choice

This was a once in a lifetime trip to New Orleans and Mardi Gras and we chose the Crescent City Guest House for our base. Matt and Lynn emailed us promptly and were willing to help with any questions we had. The guest house was immaculate as a result of their hard work. The fridge was fully stocked and we could help ourselves at any time and it proved to be a very welcome sight after a long day. We felt very comfortable from the minute we walked in and we have no complaints whatsoever. It's situated in a great part of town so make sure you explore the Marigny district. All in all a great choice - thanks to you both for a fabulous holiday.

This is where I stay every single time I visit NOLA

I absolutely adore this place. It's pretty, comfy, and clean. The rooms are spacious and have everything you might need and more. I love the details in the decoration, and the outside patio is very comfortable with plants, fountains, tables and chairs, etc. I enjoy staying in the living room area. The fridge and cabinets are full of food, juices, cups, dishes, etc.The owners are very nice and very helpful as well. It's only two blocks away from Frenchmen street, and it's a direct shot to the French Quarter. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. I really love staying there. It feels like a home away from home.

Will definitely come back again!

The room (number 3) was spacious, bright, nicely decorated, and clean! Our hosts, Matt & Lynn offered info on the area and were available for any questions. The neighborhood was quiet, but close to nightlife and sightseeing. The Marigny is a great area in which to stay!

Great value, great location, great service

We have stayed at the Crescent City Guest House two times and will be back. Matt and Lynn are very accommodating and pleasant. The area (the Marigny) is definitely a nice change from the Quarter with lots of good food, people, and entertainment.
