Ok ...here it is very straight. If your looking for a true B&B type of place ...with charm, character and unique style - than you will LOVE it here. The rooms are very large - almost all are apartment style. Many rooms are on a second floor and the stairs are quite a hike - check before you book if that's a problem for you. The pool in the rear courtyard is nice to take a quick dip and the location is good. Its clean but NOT spotless. Its nice but also old and dated. Yes it has some flaws ...and maybe if your looking for SUPER clean you will not be happy, but for the price it's MUCH better than you could hope for somewhere else. Six of us stayed for almost a week in July 2004. Each day we had breakfast at a small restaurant that is owned by the same owner - although its a few blocks away - ALL this was included. We ate a GREAT full breakfast at no additional charge. The parking was FREE - this is unheard of in the area - but about 3-4 blocks away - well worth the $15-25.00 savings that most places add to your bill. The phone calls - local are FREE also. We parked some of the time on the street right in front if it was later in the day (we were there during off season) although lots of things we were able to walk to where ever we wanted to go. The location is on the boarder of the French District - in a residential somewhat quiet area - great if you have kids. We walked to Bourbon Street two nights (DO NOT TAKE KIDS THERE AT NIGHT - EVER - Just WAY TO MUCH SEX STUFF GOING ON), we did take our kids there during the day to walk some and that was OK. Also ....the owners/employees were friendly and helpful. We were VERY happy with our stay and would go back next time we visit.
