New Orleans "Best Kept Secret!" Live with the locals!
Welcome to the Creole Inn Guest House. Located in the historic Fauborg Marigny district of New Orleans, we’re adjacent to and just a short walk from the French Quarter and other attractions. The Historic Creole Inn will transport you to a world of old-time warmth and relaxation while you soak-up the culture and flavor of New Orleans. It’s the perfect place to stay for couples, small groups, business meetings and family vacations. Take a stroll through the historic neighborhoods where you’ll find charming antique shops, casual cafes, romantic restaurants, coffee houses, neighborhood bars and live music venues.
The Creole Inn is not a Bed and Breakfast but is a Guest House. All Suites in our guest house have a private bathroom so there is no sharing! All double suites have 2 private bedrooms. So why stay in a hotel that has 2 beds in a room when you can have your own private room for 1/2 the price! Rooms feature memory foam mattresses, and are warm and charming. We take no shortcuts when it comes to our guests who we also consider part of our family!
Whether you are seeking a fun getaway to Mardis Gras or Jazzfest or simply want to experience the full-flavor of New Orleans Louisiana, you will find what you are looking for at the Creole Inn. Create memories that will last a lifetime when you "live with the locals" and experience the warmth and charm of the Creole Inn. Come stay with us and discover why the Creole Inn is considered New Orleans’ best-kept secret for affordable accommodations.
WE KINDLY ASK YOU TO READ OUR #1 POLICY BELOW PRIOR TO BOOKING! The Creole Inn was created to provide affordable clean accomodations throughout the year for travelers looking for a place to lay down their head. We are an Old World New Orleans style Inn and we keep the prices low by not providing a breakfast, maid, a butler, a bell person, room service, or any other luxury services that may be offered by more expensive accomodations. We do not provide any breakfast or meals. We are an old fashioned establishment that does not believe in providing breakfast for an added cost of $20-$40 extra dollars per night. We want our guests to experience the local culture and to include the local creole and cajun foods. Our area is NOT for modern enthusiasts and we ask you to not book here if you think we are a modern day bed and breakfast because we are NOT!!!! This house was built in the 1850's era. We are a military family of officers and have respect for all people and we ask that you book with us for a local experience and NOT for a luxurious modern day spa stay. We are not here to deceive anyone nor sell anything to anyone except an affordable place to stay with free parking and free internet access. If you require the stay of an aristocrat we ask that you kindly stay somewhere else and not with us. We want guests to enjoy their stay but we also ask guests to ensure they ask the correct questions and understand and respect the type of experience we offer. We offer the Creole Inn as a place to stay for those who are relaxed, nice, and want a local culture stay. New Orleans is a very different place than the rest of the world. The streets and the buildings are old and they are NOT a typical chain hotel stay. If you require that type of lodging please book with them. You will pay for your stay there and you pay for what you are getting. We cannot compete with those places nor do we try to compete with those places. We have our guests to sign to stay with us because we want them to understand the type of place they are staying. We welcome all people to our home but beware that you should read before you book a local stay because it may not be what you expect if you are status quo or have an obsessive compulsive disorder and we DO NOT WANT THOSE THOSE UNEDUCATED TRAVELERS STAYING HERE! Here are 2 recent stories that we want to share with you about uneducated travelers:
1. We had a teacher to stay here recently who was uneducated about the type of Inn we are and she was distraught because she had high class expectations. So please read before you book!
2. We just had another person stay here who goes by Edward S. who was rude and arrogant and then preceeded to degrade us on a travel site. He "thought" he was staying at a "Bed and Breakfast" but arrived to "no breakfast"! Needless to say his expectations were not properly aligned. Being an educated and informed reader and just reading this site would have saved him from being so disappointed that he wasnt going to get breakfast in bed.......lol One really has to ask themselves "can anyone get a Bed and Breakfast for $49 a nite especially in New Orleans?" If you answered yes to this question then do us and yourself a favor and don't even think about booking a stay here! The owners of this establisment are military field grade officers and Ivy League graduates and we state clearly what type of place the Creole Inn is and the majority of our guests clearly state that also! All we ask Edward S. is to educate yourself before you tell the public how disappointed you were. We are here for guests who are nice and want a clean cheaper place to stay and not for arrogant people who have no respect for others.
We love our travelers and bend over backwards for them!! Happy and Safe Travels we are here if you need us so just pick up the phone and call Gayl and she will answer all your questions!
Raymond, Silas and Gayl
