Excellent location! Perfectly located near the the French Quarter yet apart and distinct. We have on site bicycle storage for guests who rent their own bikes for touring. Relax in the peaceful garden and patio with a book or use the WiFi access by the swimming pool.Continental breakfast daily.

Nice gem, just enough off the beaten path

3.2 on September 22, 2016

It's a short walk to the French Quarter, making this a perfect place to get away from the rest of the excitement of the city. Very nice hospitality, and I hate giving three stars, but it was exactly what I expected, and that's what the stars stand for. I would recommend it to anyone. Ask Ed, who runs the place, about restaurants and such.

Enjoyed my stay at the Inn. Good location/value. Will be back for another stay.

Very nice spot in great location

About a ten minute walk from the action in the French Quarter, but on a very quiet street. Also not for from a bunch of joints on Frenchman Street. Continental breakfast, but you're better off heading out for something more traditional, like beignets. I would recommend this to anyone.

Nice place, very pleseant service

Very peaceful resting spot afree partaking in a day of walking and sightseeing. Also a nice little cafe if you want a full size breakfast. We walked every day to the French Quarter.

Second time - even better

4.8 on August 04, 2016

This was my second stay and Lion's Inn and I enjoyed it even more. I stayed in Room 1 right off of the pool and it was like paradise. Very nice and accommodating host and staff. A beautiful neighborhood with a few restaurants, a fairly quick walk to Frenchmen and a little further to Bourbon Street.

Nice location in New Orleans. Ed was helpful when we came in. We had a quiet room on the side of the house. Garden and swimming pool were very well maintained. Excellent choices for breakfast.

The Lions Inn was lovely!

The property is absolutely gorgeous, Ed the host was most gracious and accommodating. The location is quiet yet convenient to the livelier entertainment areas of New Orleans. Would recommend highly.
