“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

We stayed at this hotel last December while attending the Christmas feature in nearby Washington, Ky. After reading reviews, I was a little worried but so pleasantly lifted by the outside appearance of the hotel to begin with. It is in a 'festive waterfront part of town with great murals on the flood wall next to the building and around the parking lot. I found the bird cage in the lobby to be very pleasant as was the staff greeting us. The room was VERY unique and roomy with a great view of the river and bridge which is beautiful lit up at night. We can hear trains from our home so that was not a negative for us. In fact, it was kind of exciting to watch them pass. They have a lovely patio outside their dining room which in season should be most pleasant. It is located in the entertainment part of the city and you can easily walk to restaurants such as Chandlers. The town itself was DEAD so there wasn't anything to do save watch the Nina and Pinta which were docked right outside our window at the time but the hotel itself was the highlight of the outing.

Great hotel located in the historic district of Maysville. Staff was so friendly and kind to share history of the suite we were staying in as well as sights and events not to miss. All was perfect except for the train that ran directly outside out hotel. I have to say that this apartment style suite with 2 bathrooms and a lovely living room along with a river view was well worth it despite the train passings in the night.

This hotel is sited almost exactly on the landing which was the setting for the start of the Crockett Fink keelboat race in the old Disney movie. And the hotel itself is great. We had to make reservations on the way in and the lady at the desk got us great rooms despite constantly dropped calls due to our spotty cell phone coverage. Our room was large, immaculate, and had a stunning view out over the Ohio River. Breakfast was very reasonably priced for an ample hot buffet. There was free parking, and interesting restaurants and shops in the surrounding area - the old and gentrifying downtown of a classic Ohio River port. Dinner at nearby Chandler's was a major plus in our stay. Full of character, a great menu, and reasonably priced.

3 star hotel in a global perspectie but 4 star in this town. Warm and friendly place that serve home-made choclate-chip cookies after 2:30 pm! Be sure to bring ear-plugs as the coal train comes by throughout the night.

The French Quarter Inn is my favorite place to stay. Clean, comfortable rooms, courteous and able staff make for a relaxing, restful stay. The Inn is a short walk from downtown dining and for long term lodging a coin laundry is situated just across the street. I have stayed at the French Quarter Inn for weeks at a time and have never been disappointed. When traveling home from the midwest to Pennsylvania I try to plan a route that leads me to the Inn for a night to visit great friends at the FQI and enjoy a nice meal at one of the nearby eateries. Thank you to Bunny and all the staff. The French Quarter Inn is family and almost home.

I read reviews for this hotel on this and similar sites, a little hesitant to make our reservations, however, because I prefer to stay in local, non-chain hotels, did so anyhow. SO glad I did! It really is a beautifully restored, historic hotel nestled within walking distance of downtown. Our room was well appointed (we stayed on the street side), superbly clean, and the deep, jetted tub was a wonderful surprise after a long day of unexpected travelling and exploring. The staff was extremely courteous and gave us some great advice on places to dine, shop, even get my hair done! I would highly recommend this to my friends and family...actually I have done so already!

Maysville is one of the prettiest towns ever!

They have planned carefully a magnificent museum, a clean city, good restaurants and the French Quarter Inn was a delightful surprise.

We had read we might hear a train should we stay on the River side there, but the view over the Ohio River was worth it! Everything was clean and nice and the breakfast was magnificent.

The absolute only problem we encountered is my spouse has serious allergies to smoke and the receptionist was smoking inside the building in the Lounge area, which must be accepted in some of the tobacco states, but which is a problem for us.
We would stay here again, but first find out the smoking rules.
