Pleasant experience

4.0 on March 24, 2015

This place certainly has a lot of charm! From its safe location to the rooms, the comfort, and especially the owner's hospitality, is admirable. It was my first time in New Orleans and the stay definitely made it more unique. Lion's Inn is in good proximity to the French Quarter and Jackson Square. A lot of good eating places there, and of course fab music. My friend and I mostly walked to places, we only needed public transport to visit the swamp and to go to the Museum of Art. I would recommend this B&B to anyone travelling to New Orleans, without hesitation.


Loved our stay at Lions Inn!

Great location, good value and wonderful service. Staff was friendly and helpful. Parking was easy to find. We will definitely stay here the next time we come back to New Orleans!!!


First time in New Orleans

I stayed in this adorable little place March 11-15. I had Room D which was just above the balcony-it was small which is what I expected. It had a huge window that I usually had wide open because it was so nice and cool out. The bathroom was shared and across the hall. The continental breakfast was more than enough to fill me and the coffee was delicious. There was also a little coffee and pastry shop just down on the corner that was also lovely. Would totally stay here again my next trip out!

The Lion's Inn is just the perfect place to stay, not far from the French Quarter, close to Frenchmen street, quiet neighborhood. Ed is a gentleman

Pleasant stay

I stayed 2 nights in the Sun Room that is separated from the other rooms so that one feels quite nicely secluded. It has a view of the back garden and pool and a private entrance. It was very spacious for one, clean and comfy. The bathroom is a couple of steps up and I found this arrangement a little awkward. Breakfast, which I only had once, was DIY toast, bagels, packaged yoghurt and fruit, entirely adequate but nothing special. I loved the neighborhood--lots of great places to eat and drink, lots of character and charm. All in all a pleasant stay.


A real gem

I am so glad we found this lovely B&B to stay in in New Orleans. It is very close to the French Quarter and Frenchman Street, but far enough away for noise not to be a problem. The room was very comfortable and although the bathroom as not en suite it was just across the hall. There was a good range of stuff for a continental style breakfast and lovely outdoor space with a swimming pool and a hot tub. I was ill during my stay and the owner, Ed, could not have been more helpful or supportive, finding a local doctor and providing advice on pharmacies, clinics etc. He has an excellent, dedicated and intelligent staff who keep the place spotless. Unlike British B&Bs we had the run of the place 24/7 with our own keys for daytime and night-time use.


February stay at Lions Inn

3.8 on February 17, 2015

Lions Inn was a convenient location and excellent value. Bedroom was comfortable and quiet and bathroom was clean. Beautiful backyard retreat with a hot tub, pool, pond. Unfortunately when we were there it was too cold to enjoy the pool. Breakfast and wine and cheese hour left something to be desired. Breakfast options were Thomas bagels, eggs, cereal, toast. I was hoping with the bakery just down the street there would be some fresh pastries in the morning. Wine and cheese hour was Franzia and standard cheddar cheese and Ritz crackers. Don't get me wrong, it was nice to have, but I feel like if you're going to offer these things you should do it right. Overall I would definitely recommend Lions Inn because it's a great value and very convenient.
