My husband and I stayed here for three nights in January. We had an excellent rate of $45 a night. It was outstanding - clean rooms, soft towels, in-room fridge, 24 hour access to a microwave, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate, fresh baked breads at breakfast, and a friendly, knowledgeable innkeeper (Gayl). All this, and we were in a safe neighborhood just 10-14 minutes from the French Quarter. You can't ask for more! This will be our FIRST choice for lodging the next time we return to New Orleans, wish we'd known about the Creole Inn years ago!

This post is a little late...but better late than never, right? My boyfriend and I visited NOLA for Thanksgiving '09. It was such a wonderful experience. Our visit was so much better for having stayed at the Creole Inn. It's on the edge of the French Quarter, less than a 10 minute walk to the heart of it. Expect coziness and a friendly atmosphere. The beds were super comfy...so much so that we never did make it for morning coffee downstairs. No need to bring shampoo, soap, or towels as all that's provided. Something we actually thought was pretty cool was watching a VHS tape on the TV/VCR combo in the room after a tiring day walking and drinking up NOLA. What a throwback! We bumped into Silas the owner as well and enjoyed talking to him about his plans for the renovation of the Inn. Trust me...it's going to look phenomenal! Don't expect something fancy, stay here for the simplicity...and the price can't be beat! This is where we are staying for sure when we return to NOLA.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights in January. The innkeeper, Gayl, is very friendly and always available if you need anything. The other guests were delightful, everyone was so friendly. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and homey, and breakfast is delicious. It felt more like staying with friends. And the nightly rates are unbelievably low - you can't get a hotel for those prices, much less a wonderful bed and breakfast like this one!
This was quite possibly the best stay I've ever had in New Orleans!
We spent this past Christmas Eve at the Creole Inn and I don't think there would have been a better place to stay. Ms. Gayl the innkeeper was both friendly and very helpful when it came to finding our way around that area in the evening. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Creole Inn and look forward to staying again in the future.

Jack, our two adult children and I stayed at the Creole Inn for 4 nights during our vacation in New Orleans this past week. We arrived around midnight and were cheerfully welcomed by Gail, our very friendly and helpful innkeeper, despite the late hour. We stayed in the Old Europe suite on the street level. Every day we walked and walked around the city, taking in the sites and eating our way around. In the evening we would listen to music (our favorite place for jazz was The Spotted Cat, only a short distance from the Inn) then return to the Inn and collapse into the most comfortable bed. In the morning there was always fresh coffee and hot water for tea or hot chocolate, a perfect beginning to our morning's exploration of the yummy bakery stores nearby. The area surrounding the Inn was surprisingly quiet and it was nice to walk out onto a neighborhood street with lovely homes with their classic New Orleans balconies. The only improvement I would mention is that, because our room was very small, it would be nice to have hooks everywhere (on the bedroom doors, the bathroom door and even in the gap between the two bedrooms). We happened to be in N.O. for a cold spell (46Âº!) and our bedroom got terribly hot (I guess I shouldn't complain, we could have been seeing our breath instead!).
Despite these small factors, we would highly recommend the Creole Inn to other travelers and we would definitely stay again on a return visit. Thank you Gail for making us feel at home and welcome. And I hope your cat returned to you unharmed.
