Hidden gem

3.4 on February 09, 2017

We had the pleasure of staying at this 'alternative lodging option' during a recent stay at New Orleans. I really like the way it remains hidden in the trendy little Marijny neighborhood. You are just a few blocks from the trolley car, which takes you around the perimeter of the French Quarter or it's an inexpensive Uber or Lyft ride from the action. Nothing frilly nor extravagant. No restaurant on site. Just a nice clean room in a secure facility. Not the Hyatt or Hilton. If THAT is what you're looking for, enjoy paying the extra $150/night. I'll save my money and use it towards some of The Big Easy's great food. Thanks Creole Inn!

Great location and free parking

This is our fifth or sixth time staying her since 2008. The Inn has improved significantly in the past few years. Kim and Charlie are wonderful hosts and will go out of their way to make your stay a great one. there is no onsite dining, but the Creole Inn is situated in a neighborhood and you can walk to restaurants and cafes

The Creole was awesome. We wanted to see New Orleans like a resident instead of a tourist, and this inn really made it happen. It was just a short enjoyable walk between the inn and the French Quarter which helped us blend and see more of the city! Plus, the value can't be beat! Free parking and every thing you need to enjoy the stay.

Always Nice to Stay in the Marigny

Conveniently located

5 Nights of Fun!

4.2 on July 13, 2016

We booked a 2 room suite at Creole Inn. The price was half of most other lodging in NOLA, and put us close to Frenchman Street for nightlife. Creole Inn is barebones-- that is obvious from the first time you book a stay. But the inn keepers are charming and hospitable, the rooms are clean and well maintained. Common areas are well lit, clean, and the location is tremendous. Franklin and Horns are a few blocks away for meals. St Roch Market is worth the trip, and orange couch for coffee is a must!

NOLA family trip

We were looking for an authentic experience, not to be pampered or spend a lot on a room we will only be sleeping in.

Loved it

Like staying at an older Aunty's house. The price is wonderful as is the location. Everyone is so friendly. This is not the Four Seasons, this is a charming older home. No breakfast is served, but for the price, no problem. We will be staying there again.
