Best place just outside of the French Quarter.

4.0 on September 05, 2014

Four blocks to the French Quarter ,the open market or the trolley station. Everything was clean,nothing needed repair. Back yard has a garden ,pool and hot tub , just like the pictures.Free breakfast , For the money , it's as good as it gets.

Wonderful stay!

I stayed at the Lions Inn for a birthday trip I took to New Orleans. The Inn was absolutely gorgeous, had a great location, and was really tucked away, even though it was in the heart of the city. My room got upgraded, which speaks towards the customer service. Ed remembered how my dog was uncomfortable in front of other dogs and was sensitive about that...incredible!!

Fabuleux séjour

The neighborhood is great, right next to the french quarter with a lot of nice restaurants and cafés. The room was very comfortable, the bathroom very clean with towels. The pool and garden was very charming. Delicious breakfast every morning. And the owner was very welcoming. We'd definitely go back there.

nice stay

My boyfriend and I stayed for a long weekend and loved our time here. The pool and hot tub were perfect after a long day of walking around NOLA. Our room was nice and clean and the breakfast was a no-frills spread of fruit, bagels and cereal. Hot, fresh coffee and orange juice too. The owner, Ed, was helpful in every way possible. We'll definitely be back!

Excellent host and great location. Loved the cheese and wine time and pool and hot tub were a great bonus. I will definitely recommend Lions Inn to anyone.

The hospitality and service were great. The landscaping and pool area were my top features of the B&B. It's also only a short walking distance to Decatur Street and the French Market. I would definitely stay here again.

Love the Lions Inn

The Lions Inn is my favorite place to stay in New Orleans and I have always enjoyed my time there. My only complaint about this stay this time is that I was relentlessly attacked by mosquitoes while in the lovely backyard. They bit my head, my face, my fingers, just EVERY WHERE!!! I had a bad reaction to the bites and had to see my doctor when I returned home. This is the first time that I have ever experienced such a situation. I had put on repellent but it did not appear to work very well against these creatures!!! With the pool and the pond, I guess they have multiplied. It made my stay difficult. The bites became inflamed and swollen. I just never had such an experience!!!! I had been in NO for a week prior to coming to the Lions Inn and had not been bitten once. I thnk they should do some sort of spraying to take care of the problem or I won't be able to return:-(.
