Perfectly located near the the French Quarter yet apart and distinct. Walk or use our bicycles in and out of town or just relax in the peaceful garden and patio with a book or use the WiFi access by the swimming pool. Complimentary Cheese and wine each evening.

Wonderful Lions Inn

4.8 on May 22, 2015

Our stay in NOLA was so wonderful & the Lions Inn was a BIG part of it! Ed, the owner was very nice & helpful. The B&B was clean, affordable, and very lovely! We used the bikes available to explore the city. It was great to come back in the evening and take a dip in the pool and relax. I would most definitely stay there again. Thank you!

Another wonderful stay

I've stayed at the inn many times, it is an oasis when you need a break from the crowds. Ed and his staff provide a very clean, friendly and lovely place to lay your head and relax. Can't wait to return!

First trip to New Orleans

3.6 on May 08, 2015

This was my first trip to New Orleans and the first time staying at a bed & breakfast. After my experience there, I will go again! Ed was very accommodating and the Lion's Inn was most comfortable. The housekeeping crew kept the place immaculate. The pool, hot tub and seclusion created by all of the landscaping created an ambiance I will not forget. Sitting by the pool in the morning, sipping coffee was so relaxing. After this trip it will be hard for me to stay in a hotel again. Thank you for creating a great memory for me!

Excellent Service

This is a lovely setting in a residential neighborhood with distinctive architecture. There is a clean pool and a natural and well-landscaped pond as well. When I experienced difficulties, management was responsive and helpful. I appreciated this greatly. I would recommend this B&B.

Quiet, quaint and conveniently located.

Warm welcome, good documentation available, nice pool/garden area, and there are free bikes available, biking around was fun and convenient! The inn is very well kept and clean. Breakfast is abundant, however I would suggest serving coffee made with local beans, or use Cafe du Monde or at least a better than average brand. This simple detail makes a difference for most well traveled guests. I will come back!

Easter in New Orleans

4.6 on April 11, 2015

We had a great weekend. This is the fifth B&B we have stated at in NOLA, and the best so far. The room was small, but who cares. The pool area was very nice and the conversations with the other guests was great.

great place to stay, within walking distance to everything.

The only disagreeable thing was the smell of dog in the kitchen. I think Ed's dog likes to mark the kitchen. Other than that it it a great place to stay.

A nice stay

A small room but clean and where you feel good. A wonderfull courtyard full of water and vegetation, really nice for breakfast outside. The guest doesn't speak a lot but in the other hand it's areally quiet place. Would come back there for sure!

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!
