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.

My go-to spot in New Orleans

5 on November 09, 2016

This is a charming spot in a terrific location - quiet and removed from the hustle and bustle but close enough to enjoy all the great New Orleans culture!

Genuine stay in New Orleans

We really enjoyed our stay at the Lion's Inn: room, pool, breakfast, neighborhood, everything was perfect!

Lions Inn - A Wonderful Stay

4.4 on November 04, 2016

We had a wonderful stay at the Lions Inn in the Marigny section of New Orleans. Our host, Ed, was very helpful and friendly. A continental breakfast was served outside where there was also a beautiful pond (two waterfalls), a pool and a hot tub. We relaxed each day by the pool after a fun-filled day. The breakfast was continental style but more than adequate. The property was clean and very attractive. Our room was exceptionally clean!

Beautiful Courtyard

3.2 on October 21, 2016

Beautiful courtyard, very nice pool and lovely pond. Nice continental breakfasts. (Unfortunately, no longer offer wine and cheese in the evening due to changes in State laws.) Great location with easy access to good local restaurants, bars, shops, Frenchman's Street and the Quarter. Some of the rooms could do with some upgrading. All in all, a pleasant experience.

Relaxing time

We had our 2nd stay at Lion's Inn B & B and we enjoy the location, within walking distance from restaurants and nighttime entertainment. The pool area is clean and relaxing after a long day of attending festivals. I do recommend staying at Lion's Inn B & B when you are in the NOLA area.

Always a Welcoming Exsprience

5 on October 03, 2016

I have stayed at Lions Inn several times and I really love the place. It is a ten minute walk to the French Quarter and seven to Frenchman Street. The grounds are a tropical oasis and the rooms are well appointed and clean. Ed and Nipper the mascot are welcoming to all who enter Lions Inn. Breakfast in the morning is enough to get you going for the day. Lions Inn is a wonderful safe, welcoming environment in a wonderful historical city.

Weekend stay

Ed is a very nice and friendly innkeeper. Lion's Inn was very clean and very inviting. Enjoyed my stay and will stay here again.

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.

Lion Inn Review

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

Very nice spot in great location

3.6 on September 11, 2016

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.
