A warm welcome set the tone for the rest of my stay, a very local experience in New Orleans. The building is full of charm and a lovely stay. The location is near by to Frenchmen St - about a 10 minute walk. Or if you are keen to see the historic Bourbon St I suggest go during the day or early evening as it turns into a slum of drunken younglings later in the night. Ensure you are comfortable walking around, particularly at night. Or take ride-share around if necessary. There is also the tram / trolley service nearby.
This was the best holiday I’ve ever been on. Constance at the hotel was so lovely and welcoming. She is a credit to the place and we are so glad we met her. The furniture in the room was gorgeous with a vintage look. Needed a step to get in to the bed it was so big! Always hot water for the shower. The garden was lovely for a coffee in the mornings. Only 5-10 mins from Frenchmen Street and about 15 to the centre of town. Lovely, quiet neighbourhood. Felt safe, even whilst walking alone there. Would recommend the hotel to anyone who wants to stay in an authentic Creole house rather than a traditional (boring) hotel.
I highly recommend you read creoleinn.com, this tells you exactly what to expect. I stayed in the Sweet Dreams Room, nothing fancy with a comfy bed. A chair in the room would be nice even though the space is tight with the king bed. Good hot water with low pressure due to, well your in New Orleans. The property is 8 blocks east of the French Market in the Quarter. A lot of good walking exercise. Gayl was awesome, thank you. There is a lady living downstairs, not sure if its Constantine. On day 3 of my stay she called to the doorway as I was getting in the car and we spoke for about a minute. This is the only time I saw her. Just read the handwritten notes and follow them to a tee. I had to chuckle, when she fussed (out loud to herself) because I didn't put the canister of coffee in its place and turned off a light before I saw the note. I even got an extra note regarding the proper placement of coffee cups. Maybe something besides these notes can be done to keep guest such such as myself from frustrating her. It was a good stay for the price, $49 per night for 4 nights. The Old Europe Room on the first floor might be a better choice, no stairs and the headboard is not blocking window. There are 20 stairs to the second floor, adding luggage made this somewhat of a chore for me. Again, good exercise. Finally, this is a residential neighborhood, mostly quiet except for a few barking dogs. The property is near a train track and you can hear the whistle. This shouldn't be a problem for most.
First visit to New Orleans and were very happy staying at the Old Historic Creole Inn. Gail in the office was very efficient and helpful. Constance at the hotel was very very friendly and helpful. She gave us directions to restaurants and places to visit in New Orleans. The place was clean, bed very comfortable. We would stay there again on future visits to New Orleans. Roger & Jim from Las Vegas loved it!!!
Hotel was pretty good and very well located not too far from the French neighborhood so it makes me easy to go around the city. the administrator, second night, at the time I was getting ready for going out for dinner and because I had rented a car, she asked me if I could drive her off to the supermarket so I gently said yes, but it turned out that she wasn't heading to the nearest supermarket... she wanted to go to another one much further around 4 miles away. Anyway I took her there and when we arrived it was closed already... I felt very uncomfortable and I even wanted to leave her there but could not find the way how... She almost forced me to stay there and wait for here and take her back to the hotel.... She told us that anyway we must had to return by the same road to go to where we were originally heading to .... Having no chance, she got on the car again and lead us the way back.... on the way back she made me make a stop in a house that was located in a neighborhood I didn't like at all.. That is the only complain I have of my staying there. I hadn't even posted anything at the time it happened because I was afraid of she took it against to me and we still had couple nights left staying there...
We had the Old Europe 2-bedroom suite. We were 3 people, and it was very comfortable for us. The building is old, but the room was clean and in good condition. It was well equipped (2 TV's, fridge). We also enjoyed having breakfast at the outdoor patio that we could access conveniently through our room's back door. The only critic would be the internet connection, which was slow and spotty in the room. We had to go to the lobby to get any task done online. Constance, the receptionist/manager, gave us the best welcome, made us feel at home, and was super friendly and helpful. The house cat is very chill too! The hotel could not be better located, in a quiet residential area of Faubourg Marigny and right on the skirt of the French Quarter at the same time. A 5-minute walk to Frenchmen Street. We have a wonderful memory of this place, and we would definitely stay at Creole Inn again!
I have been to New Orleans many times and the Creole Inn is my favourite accommodation by far. The location is perfect, in a residential area which is only a short walk from Frenchmen Street and other great spots. We stayed in the Cowboy Suite which is two rooms with massive comfortable beds. I loved the quaint kooky antique decor. Constance the housekeeper/host is amazing. She went out of her road when checking in to point out nearby locations for food and drink. Constance is so friendly and helpful and was always around if we needed anything like fresh towels. A much preferable stay to a soulless big hotel, a great wee place full of character with a friendly personal touch from Constance. Can't wait to go back!
I booked this property on the advice of a friend who'd stayed here before. Upon arriving, we noticed a For Sale sign in the window and two people conversing on the steps. Our party had booked two separate rooms and we had arrived early. We went to eat and the rooms were ready upon our return. Apparently there had been an issue with one of the rooms that we hadn't booked and a crew was doing repairs. Totally understandable. I won't go into the specifics too much, but we had the following issues over our 4 day stay. 1. Our trash was not emptied in 4 days. Mind you this property has a refrigerator in room. 2. Our linen was not changed in 4 days. 3. Our towels were not replaced in 4 days. 4. On initial arrival, the towels all had a mildewed smell. 5. We were asked to perform tasks that staff would normally perform (including washing out cups from morning coffee and moving furniture). 6. One of two air conditioners in our room not working properly. 7. Doors that were difficult to open or close without physically holding up the weight of the doors to open or close them. Difficult for our female guest. In the interest of fairness there were some things that went well: 1. Did not see a single bug the entire stay. 2. Beds were very comfortable. 3. Parking did not prove an issue at all which is saying something in New Orleans. 4. PLENTY of hot water. Even with three guests, in our room we never ran out. 5. The street was much quieter than I would have imagined. Overall, I can see this was likely a very nice property at one time. It's older and of course some fixtures and such are going to show the common wear that comes with an older property. The price also reflects the expectation. However, it appears the issues we had were more to do with management of staffing, or a lack thereof. It appeared there was only one older woman there to do all the work, and she was clearly overwhelmed even with just our 5 guests. It hurts my heart to give a 1 star review to any property if it's generally clean so I am offering a 2 star, but it is simply unforgivable to leave guests with no fresh towels or linen for 4 days. And unacceptable to ask guests to perform staff tasks. This was probably a nice stay at one time, but I cant recommend it now, and would not be willing to stay here again.
I loved the room, the privacy we received, so quiet and peaceful. I will definitely come back and stay here. First visit with New Orleans and not my last. My bed was comfortable and i felt safe. I uber to the main areas which cost me less than 6 bucks. Great place and great location. Thank you.
I stayed for 10 nights and it was a great experience. The Host arranged for me to be picked up and dropped off at the airport which was a luxury since I am not American. I stayed in the Memories room which was just right for me. I would just like to say to all who do not read the website and go there expecting the royal treatment then you are special in more ways than one. Before I booked I looked at the reviews and clearly their are more good than bad and I noticed the ones with low reviews must can not read so I will share my experiance with and for those who have a hard time understanding because this little Inn was PERFECT. it is very clean. The host, Marlee, asked me every single day I was there did I need anything, want anything, or could she do anything for me or the room? She had put extra liners in the trash so I could empty as I go. THERE IS NO ROOM SERVICE PEOPLE what is it that you don't understand. I came last year and from then to now the Inn has upgraded. It is very clean and I will say that the Host works hard to make sure that accomodations are met. A brief meet & greet is given when you get in and she shows you where everything is so YOU can make your own coffee or hot tea--she does not make it for you. She empties the wet towel hamper everyday. I never ever had to ask for anything because she ALWAYS beat me to the punch and I would cheerful get what I asked for. The garden area is nice, quiet, and serene. They have beautiful flowerbeds and table/chairs etc to relax and enjouy and drink a cold one. I was given a map of the area as soon as we met, a card with all my information I needed to contact her and get in. The inn is very quiet and relaxing. The bed is absolutely luscious. Memory foam with the best sheets and decor for the room. The tv had every channel you can imagine and FREE movies. I wanted to stay longer because I got spoiled very quickly. The inn is close to everything, french market, frenchman street (my favorite), all the pubs on every corner, and the food is good everywhere you eat. One thing I can say about New Orleans is that everyone treats you like an old friend and includes you which is nice for someone from another country coming to experiince a different culture. I will be back. Thank you Creole Inn and Marlee for making my stay the best.
