This is our wonderful New Orleans home-away-from-home for life!!!  We are in a unique boat as we have 2 large dogs who travel with us.  Most French Quarter area hotels only accommodate dogs 25 lb or less, and/or charge big pet fees!  There is a little park across the street for "dog business" and the are poopy bags available in the courtyard as you are walking out.  
Olde Town Inn is a super short cab ride from the French Quarter, it is the cutest place!  We stayed in a room that had a smaller room (and bed!) for the dogs and a clawfoot tub!
Ginger sent the nicest confirmation email, and when we mentioned that we were True Blood fans, she researched the local area to find a bar where we could watch the season 4 premiere!
There is an attached parking lot where you can park for $10 a day, but there isn't really a need as there is abundant street parking at all hours.
The neighborhood is ok for walking around with your dogs in, and I even found this: candychang.com/before-i-…  nearby and visited it daily.

I can't say enough nice things about Olde Town Inn, and I can't wait to return!!!!

Sure, this is not a luxury hotel, but for an inexpensive place within walking distance of the French Quarter and a low key local feel, it works. The staff is super nice and really helped us get around town. Winding down in their funky courtyard was one of our favorite elements of our trip. I can recommend it, but see if you can request room 18, which is really a mini suite, clean, quiet, and at the end of the row by the breakfast area. Some of our fellow guests had a less wonderful experince. :(

This place has a lot of character.  There is no central heat (each room has a space heater), often not much of a bathroom door, and you can definitely hear your neighbors at night.  If you are expecting a private hotel experience, this is not your place.  But if you want an honest taste of the Marigny neighborhood in New Orleans, you cannot beat this place.  The location is awesome, the rooms are great for groups (one "room" has three actual rooms and five beds), the management is helpful and friendly, and your fellow guests are often characters to write home about.  This is my favorite spot to stay in New Orleans, but you need to appreciate the quirk.

I really liked the quaint atmosphere of the Olde Town Inn. It's no five star resort, but unique and clean with very pleasant staff. Definately more interesting/unique than a boring ol motel 6, and walking distance to canal street.

Great place to stay at an extremely affordable rate right outside the French quarters. The owners are awesome, extremely friendly and helpful in terms of suggestions on where to visit and dine. I would definitely book in the future if I ever get an opportunity to visit New Orleans again!!

Not only do I Love this place but It makes me cry I miss the whole atmosphere of it! The place is close to the fun places in town & has such a cool feel to it so you can just chill and relax in the am or afternoon under a tree in the colorful courtyard in some of the chairs provided. Laundry room is useful & everyone was great. I dont drink coffee but they had hot chocolate so I was happy as a clam! I cannot wait to go again one day....Oh one more hint if you get the coupon book at mcyd's you get a great room cheaper than ever!

This is not the hotel to stay in if you're used to new/ refurbished hotels.

The room was fairly disappointing. It was old, stained, without one piece of fabric that matched and a sad excuse of decorations. Random pictures, records and antiques were placed around, but obviously found at some estate sale half off. Even our armoire had a broken mirror in it! The room can seem noisy because the door is a glass window and everyone that walks/talks/works makes a lot of noise on the wood porch. But I peeked into other rooms and they had wood floors and were nicer, next time I would just ask for one of those.

Having said that the quaint feel of this Inn is nice. It's location is awesome, right next to Frenchmen St. and a quick walk to the quarter. The bed was comfortable and the courtyard was great. While we were never up for it, they serve breakfast on the patio. This place reminds me of all the houses I grew up in here... old and quirky.

The price is the best I could find, the staff was friendly and let's face it you're in NOLA and you shouldn't be in your hotel much anyway!!

Call and check prices, they jump depending on the weekend... just like at every hotel

This review is not an easy one to write. Some people will not like this place. On the other hand, the place is kind of cool on its own merits. It kind of like a dysfunctional bread and breakfast joint with many issues but a lot of heart and personality. When they introduced their retarded cat as "this is our retarded cat", I realized this was going to be more than my usual vanilla flavored lodging experience.

Let me just say the potential of this hotel being a really nice place to stay is off the chart. But the place needs work, and lots of it. Noise is a problem. We could hear our neighbors upstairs like they we were in the same room. Maybe in a few years I will check it out again, it has a lot of old world charm going for it.

The cat best reflects the true nature of this place; beat up, missing parts, a little slow but cute and oddly charming in an ugly sort of way.

I want to give a shout out to Ginger, who took care of me while I was frantically searching for a place to stay for a group of us. She was gracious, and kind  - far more attentive than I would expect you'd get out of a call to a one star establishment.  If you're traveling on a budget, I recommend considering the Olde Town Inn.

Her southern hospitality and the historic merits of the inn garner 4 stars!
I am a fan!

If you want to get a real taste of New Orleans, this is the place to stay. The accommodations are very old and has that French Quarter feel to it. The Inn is located walking distance to the French Quarter but is actually in an artsy area close to the lively and musical Frenchman Street. What was also great was that there was plenty of parking available on the street. Parking in the French Quarter can run up to $30 a night. I would recommend getting a room with your own bathroom. We got a shared bathroom and it was ridiculous how long and often we had to wait.

We had a suite to ourselves, one queen-size bed for two and a twin size bed that I'm sleeping in. Got the place for Mon-Sat nights, and it came to $230 per person.

The room itself was nothing to write home about, except that there were some great antiques (records, framed pictures, dresser). 14" TV with basic cable. Only three viable wall outlets, which became an issue only when we all wanted to charge phones.

Staff is insanely friendly, volunteers extremely helpful information about places to go. For us, they made the distinction between "trashy bars" and "hipster-trashy bars" to go to. This was very useful.

There's a common area behind the rooms that is open-air and BEAUTIFUL. It is shaded, has patio furniture, a grill, and is filled with antiques, including a pair of footed bathtubs that now hold plants.

The coffee is terrible and the breakfast is substandard, if only slightly. But that's really it, there were no other problems with ANY aspect of our stay. Much love.

The Family Suite accommodated our group of 7 fabulously. The shower was short and the curtain too long, I also recommend that your large group not all attempt to shower one after the next. Lucked out of a free crawfish broil the Friday night of our Jazzfest weekend stay. Proximity to Frenchman St was clutch. This may be my NoLA go to spot.

I would definitely consider staying again my next visit.  Liked the location- outside the quarter, but not too far away.  Quiet neighborhood, still close to great food and late night bars.  Staff was exceptionally attentive.  Continental breakfast was great.  The building is quite old, so some rooms are a little slanted.  Electric heaters were provided.  Showers were hot, beds comfortable.  Lots of room options for larger groups.

This is one of the cheapest hotels in NOLA. For that price, expect to stay in a room lacking any sort of thermic isolation: on the 24th of December, we woke up in a very cold room. When we left it to have our breakfast (served outdoor), we didn't really feel a difference. The two electric heaters don't make any noticeable difference. Having a shower is a challenge as the stream is weak and hot water takes ages to arrive. Breakfast is very simple: orange juice, coffee, tea, cereals, cold milk, tasty cinnamon rolls, muffins, bread and a nice waffle machine (on the second morning, the waffle dough dispenser was being cleaned, so no waffle that day). I liked the decoration of the breakfast place. The staff at the reception was friendly and helpful. I still wouldn't recommend this place to a friend.

This is my new Vacation house!

If your prissy and want a boring sterile room move along you won't be happy here and I don't want to run into you at breakfast.

Ginger at the front desk is like your college RA, she gives good advice and helps figure out what ever drama pops up during your stay. I'm sorry I can't tell you the name of their Handyman, but he's like the thoughtful uncle that buys you a cup for baseball when your single mom is clueless about such things. This is a Gay owned business, which means it's Gay friendly (what business in NOLA isn't) and the Gay's that were staying there while I was there just gushed over the place, if you don't know what that means, the translation is this place ranks very VERY high on charm.

I met a couple from Berlin, 2 frat boys from Australia , a pair from Chesapeake bay area, all in the breakfast party patio, during our 4 day stay.

They are moderately priced and even have a lay-a-way plan for your reservation. In times like these that's #1 thoughtful, & #2 brilliant.

The only reason why I give it 4 1/2, instead of 5 stars, is they serve atrocious coffee at breakfast. But from my experience it's the city water used in the coffee that makes it bad. They should make a better effort on the coffee by using filtered water and serving real half & half. We solved this problem with our own instant Starbucks & cream.

It's close to most everything you want to do in NOLA, and being nestled in the Marigny it gives you the feel of really living in NOLA. I highly recommend to any adventurous soul, and I will return again, and again, and again.

Olde Town Inn is a cute, yellow hotel. Lots of character, I'd say.

Upon walking in through the narrow doorway, you'll encounter a giant stuffed Kermit playing the piano, a grand Christmas tree, and the NICEST receptionists known to man. The man checked us into our hotel, and informed us that we were instantly upgraded to a suite for FREE.

The man at the reception desk was absolutely helpful. Questions about public transportation, taxi cabs, Frenchman St., French Quarters, Acme, cats, etc. Yup, he knew it all. He gave us a map, marked off places for us, and gave us suggestions for places that are must-sees.

The suite was charming, with pale green walls, wooden floors, and windows everywhere. The furniture was antique, and the wall adornments were unique. Law diploma of some random man in the bathroom, giant pot in the closet (for gumbo?), etc, etc. I loved the room upon walking in.

However, with each day spent at Olde Town, I realized that the place was not the cleanest of hotels. The continental breakfast serves the crappiest coffee I've ever tasted. The biggest negative was the itch/rash I developed on my right arm and back from sleeping in the master bed. Simple irritation probably, and hopefully not bugs. Either way, the cleanliness could be improved here.

Bottom line, I would stay here again, definitely. It's conveniently located near Frenchman St, and a mile walk away from the French Quarters. Just be weary of the potentially irritating sheets, and maybe bring some hydrocortisone cream while you're at it!

For the price we paid we were blown away! Everyone who works there was extremely helpful and sweet, if you stay here I highly recommend asking their advice on tours, restaurants, etc. I left my spare car keys in the room on accident and they contacted me right away and mailed them to me. We only asked for a room with one king bed but got two at no extra cost, and our room was very cozy and clean. The location is in a great area only a short walk from the French Quarter, and parking and getting to it is very easy.
If you are taking advantage of their breakfast (which was better than most regular hotels), go early.

Plus they are dog friendly! Will definitely be back!

I want to give this place 5 stars, but I got hurt here... in the bathroom.
Okay, here is the story.  It was 3AM and I had to pee. So I go to the bathroom... which is tiered... yep. there is a step between the sink and door and the tub and toilet.  There was plenty of light coming in through the window so I did not turn on the light and when I went to wash my hands after... you know... I did not judge the step well and rolled my ankle. I now have a 3rd degree sprain and I ended up leaving NoLa a day early.
Other than that, I love this place.  I felt comfy from the get go.  The staff is awesome and very nice, the resident kitties are sweet and approachable. The bed was comfortable and the room large.
Any question I had was answered, I probably should have let someone know that the remote didn't work, but I wasn't there to watch TV, now was I?
I think a certain type of person stays here, because I felt like I was with like minded people every time I met one of my neighbors.  Which I did often, as the gathering patio was across from my door.
It's about a 1.3 mile walk to the heart of the Bourbon Street.  Parking was not an issue for me.  Breakfast was provided between 7 and 10AM. There are plenty of coffee places and restaurants in the area, good ones.

Def a cool spot that is outside the party and walk able distance from french quarters. Came out from CA for the NBA all star game and well worth the price. Weather was chilly, but heaters provided in each room. Staff was definitely helpful, esp when my phone died, they had good recommendations on tourist and non tourist spots. Would stay again without hesitation.

We wanted to love this place so much, but we were disappointed.

After finding hair and stains on our sheets, we asked that the bedding be changed with fresh on both.  One had new sheets, the other did not.  Bug bites on legs from ??? were our biggest issue.

The pros:
The staff was nice and very helpful.
Pastries and cereal for breakfast in a rustic courtyard setting.
Price (even to request two beds and get a fridge).
Location (walking distance to/from French Quarter).
A/C unit in window and great ceiling fans above each bed.
Vending machines/ice.
Private courtyard for guests.

Other cons:
You can hear every drunk staying/walking by and people making love in nearby rooms.
Dirty beds and grimy tub.
Gaps in doors big enough to let lots of creepy-crawlers in.

Even though there are less cons, they outweigh the pros by the first couple of hours.

Reading some of the other reviews, I get the impression some folk just don't understand New Orleans! If you want a sterile box to stay at, go to the Ramada in Portland, Oregon. If you want a fantastic Nawlins experience, at a price you can afford, in just about the perfect location, five minutes walk from Frenchman, then stay here. Yes, it has it's quirks, but look around you! You are in New Orleans! The whole city is one big quirk, and could "use a little fixing up".

If you "get" Nawlins, you will love this place, I garontee. Oh, and it's dog friendly ($15/night surcharge) and has available secure off street parking ($10/night).

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for Mardi Gras in Feb 2013. Overall an OK place to stay, but we probably not stay again.

Pros:
-Phillip was helpful ahead of time when we had questions prior to booking our reservation. Once we checked in, he gave us a quick tour of the property and showed us our room.
-good pillows
-AC worked well
-great water pressure in the shower

Cons:
-their website states this is a bed and breakfast, however it felt more like an old motel. I imagined from the pictures that it would be more like a typical BNB inside a large house.
-bedroom and fixtures felt like they were falling apart and cheaply put together and poorly fixed.
-towels were paper thin and small. I would recommend bringing your own.
-room felt and smelt musty
-maids could do a better job dusting
-floor was FILTHY!  Within 5 mins of getting out of the shower our feet were black!!  
-breakfast was all pastries and breads. I understand its only a continental breakfast and not a full hot breakfast, but yogurt or fruit would've been a nice option as well.

Overall, for the price being the same as a standard hotel, we expected something better.

I stayed here in November 2012 with some girlfriends for a weekend. We didn't have any problems with itches/rashes or our room be unkempt (as did some other reviewers). You're not staying at a 5-star hotel for $1,000 a night - know what to expect people! It's quirky cute decor, older building. Yes the floor boards creek. Yes you can hear a little bit of foot traffic late at night. But you're on vacation, is it that big of a deal? It wasn't for us.

The staff was super nice, always smiling when went to bother them - one morning I had them hunt down bandaids for my friend who suffered blisters from her high-heels ;)

I loved the common eating area, too cute. Plants in a tub = genius. All the other quests we came across were like-minded, very friendly. Our first morning to eat breakfast, it was pretty busy. I invited a couple who was sitting on a bench to eat at our table since we had plenty of room. They were from Europe and it was their first time in NOLA. It was that experience of meeting new people that I loved about the hotel. Being from the South, it was nice to experience the "down-home" geniuine niceness away from home.

One of the best features I feel is that it's a neighborhood. People live there and kind of have that eye out for their fellow neighbor. In addition to the room key, there's a key-only access gate from the street which made 3 girls feel extra safe.

I've suggested this place to multiple friends who have planned upcoming trips. I will definitely stay here again!

For $59/night, you really can't ask for more.  The location is great!  Our room (one queen bed off the interior courtyard) was clean and comfortable, though the furniture didn't match and the fixtures were pretty old.  But the bed was nice and the room even had a refrigerator.  It was like staying in the guest room of a friend's house, but with a lot more privacy.  

If you can afford to stay at a nice hotel downtown, then do it.  But if you're traveling on a budget and want to stay in the city, then Old Towne Inn is your best option.  

I'd recommend calling to reserve a room.  There are a number of rooms set up for groups, not couples, and I've heard stories of people accidentally renting the room with 3 twin beds instead of a room with a queen because they booked online.

I was debating on whether to give this motel a one star, but I decided to be generous and rate it a two star. Before I even checked in I already was dealing with a major issue in my opinion and that would be the abundance of not one cat, but somewhere between 10-15 alley cats were walking around like a mob. Granted i am not a cat person but a huge amount of them surrounding me as I'm going into somewhere i am expected to sleep at makes me uncomfortable and a little disgusted. Ewh! Anyways my experience all around was less than enjoyable because they advertised themselves having WiFi, but theirs was down and seemed annoyed that anyone would expect them to make some sort of an effort to resolve that little issue in today's modern world. So we've got the cat issue and no internet/crabby front desk situation going on and I didn't think things could get much worse. I wasn't aware that this is apparently a meth head motel with clearly no discretion about selling illegal drugs  and the insane foot traffic at all hours of the night ! The price was around $40.00 and it has a little old southern charm kind of feel to the motel, but it's not my kind of place to stay again. It's run down and a little too much on the sketchy side for myself.

Run down hotel in a sketchy neighborhood with an indifferent front desk Four blocks walk on North Rampart and my mugging radar went off. I ran into a biker who said it's not a good idea to venture above Saint Claude Avenue. This place was right on the cusp. Don't book through a third party like Bookit. I never got my promised free Natchez river cruise.

I hosted an overnight bachelorette party here this past weekend. There were 8 of us ladies and I hadn't checked the room out ahead of time so I was super stressing! Judging from the pictures online I expected old vintage, mostly a large room with a bunch of not so fancy beds.

Part of the party was held in the room with tapas & a bellydancer. Upon arrival I was pleased to find that our door faced the street and was right next to the lobby area (which in itself has a quaintness all of its own- a giant stuffed Kermit playing a piano?) We needed to pop into the lobby for a few things, a corkscrew, a broom & dustpan, etc. All of which they had at the ready & were most helpful about lending to us for the night.

The room was extremely comfortable with a charming old New Orleans feel. I especially loved what seemed to be original wood floors and the slight tilt to the foundation one expects from such old houses in the area.. There were 7 beds with 2 separate bedrooms in the back. One thing we all noticed was the extra bed in the closet..beyond helpful.
We had a cute little clawfoot tub and the front room was big enough to host our little wine soiree, with tons of unexpected table space for all of our munchies etc!  It was a chilly out but the room had several heating units in the windows & even one of those fake, plug-in fireplaces! Very cozy..

It was fairly quiet for the most part & I felt pretty safe as well. The pricing was fantastic for the amount of space we had! I will definitely be returning here for any future parties I might host and will also recommend it to friends!

If it were possible to give 0 stars, I would. We made this reservation months in advance, through a booking service. We got a reminder email a week in advance, and all appeared to be fine. I emailed the day we left (we were driving in) to let them know we would be checking in late. Then I called and left a voice mail. Both the email and voice mail included two cell phone numbers that could be used to contact us. At 9:00 the night we were to arrive, I checked my email by phone (thank GOD) to find a notice that the Olde Town Inn had overbooked, and in fact, we did not have a place to stay that night. There was no message on either phone, and if I had not checked my email, we would have arrived at 11:00 at night to find we did not have a room.  UNacceptable. Completely.

Our crew has been booking here for Jazz Fest for a handful of years. It was a good place to book if you're budget-conscious and have a large group, and we've been excited about included the all-you-can-eat crawfish boil.

However, the crawfish boil was a maybe / game time decision this year and service was iffy - towels were offered if you happened to be there when the housekeeper came by and that's pretty much it. Trash was not taken out and beds were unmade.

Also, the beds have the metal frames jutting out on which we almost cut ourselves a few times. Not good for those of you who plan to party...

Lastly, we booked a specific room in the courtyard and were switched out to a street room, and they offered no remedy or apology for this. This may be the last year we book here - a sad end to a good run.

Really wanted to like the Olde Town Inn as it is our old neighborhood in New Orleans. Stayed for two nights starting the Sunday after the first weekend of Jazzfest 2014.

Unfortunately, the hotel is run down and the staff are run down too, not very friendly but just getting on with their job. My wife and I booked a Deluxe Single on hotels.com which was supposed to have a Queen or King bed but ended up with two rooms with 6 single beds. Their reservation system could do with some work and I would only recommend booking with them directly.

That wasn't the only problem though, the shower was so moldy we didn't use but went to a communal shower next door. Never get the wifi to work either.

The only plus point is the neighborhood which is upcoming and has a couple of cool drive bars. If you want to walk to Frenchman or even the Quarter it is close enough too.

A friend and I took a little trip to New Orleans for the first time last week and stayed at the Olde Town Inn. I would definitely recommend this place if you're traveling on a budget and/or with larger groups of friends.

When we got there to check in, we were apparently upgraded at no extra cost to a suite of sorts (room 33) that had four rooms and seven beds. The staff was friendly and accommodating, helped us book a swamp tour during our stay and a cab to the airport on the day we left. The building seemed to be pretty old; the premises were a bit run down, the rooms got pretty drafty at night, and no toiletries other than bar soap and shampoo were provided. They do offer complimentary breakfast in the mornings, which sounded like a great deal until we got to the courtyard and sampled the shriveled pastries and acrid coffee. For the price we were paying, though, I wasn't expecting much more in terms of amenities.

The Olde Town Inn is a couple blocks' walking away from the eastern parts of the French Quarter, and the path we took always passed by the amazing live music bars on Frenchmen Street. However, some of the parts we walked through appeared to be borderline shady neighborhoods, so my friend and I opted to take cabs back after dark just to be safe.

Just spent a week at the olde town inn and it was perfect for our budget. Under $100 a night and we were upgraded to a a double room that had a living room as well. It was clean and quaint and a short walk to anywhere you want to go. Bywater is a few blocks one way and French quarter a few blocks the other way; it's a perfect location . The court yard with breakfast was cute too. I'd stay there again!

It's nice for the price. A little small but it is in a older building so it is to be expected.  The people at the front desk seemed friendly and it is in a ok area of the city. If you don't know the city or area don't go walking at night and act like a tourist,  daytime is safe. Overall it is a good place to stay.

Old style authentic New Orleans stay is a great way to describe this quaint hotel. I only stayed there two nights, and was pleasantly surprised at how conveniently located it was to the French Quarter, yet far enough away from the craziness. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was very affordable and perfectly sized for a solo traveller who does not require a lot of room. I will definitely recommend it to my traveling friends.

Yes, this place is old, but hey, it's New Orleans. A lot of the buildings are old, and that's what makes it the city it is. My room was clean and comfortable, and everything (including the bathroom) seemed pretty recently renovated. The breakfast was tasty, and while the outdoor dining area was quaint and cute, it was a little too chilly in the morning to really enjoy it as much as I would like. I did not feel unsafe walking around the neighborhood by myself, which is great, because I do love to explore by foot when I travel. French Quarter/downtown is an easy enough trek, and a cab company was across from the hotel itself if you happened to need it. Staff was friendly and helpful, so no complaints there. The only thing that bothered me enough to bring up was that I could hear the TV in the adjacent room all night, but it was nothing that firing up some music on my phone couldn't fix. I would definitely stay here again.

Antique vibe, gorgeous rooms, nice courtyard patio for breakfast / general spending time, a short walk to the French quarter, and Christopher is honestly the best concierge you will ever have.

The Olde Town Inn was pretty good for the price and for the location.
It is a little run down, but my fiancee and I just felt that it added to the character of the building. The location was good too, as it was only a few blocks from the river and from the cable car system. Parking was also easy to find. The room itself contained a large bed and again, the room itself was old and slightly worn, but we truly felt like there was a lot of charm and character coming out of the old building.

The breakfasts were held in the little patio/garden area. Make sure you get it early because the food goes fast and they do not really refill any empty items.
The best thing about our stay was their pet policy. We needed a room that could accommodate two dogs and a cat. They were happy to allow this and did not require any extra fee or deposit.

The bathroom was a little shoddy. It was tiny and the door was but a little folding partition. No big deal to us, since we were not looking to spend hundreds of dollars just for a couple of nights in New Orleans.

Stayed here with a SO on a recent trip to New Orleans. Unbeknownst to us, the "Deluxe" suite is not actually a more luxurious room, just merely one with more beds. Highly recommend it for bringing large groups to the quarter.

Staff was super friendly, neighborhood was quiet, and place overall was clean. The amenities are a bit basic, but as a location to drop your stuff before heading out to Frenchman or the marigny, really good location.
