What are you waiting for?



Prytania Cottages

Our newest apartment suites located across the street from the main property. Each cottage features a large bedroom, a queen sized bed and a bonus living area with a futon sofa. Ideal for long term stays or for families that need a little more space to spread out.


The Bordello Rooms

These rooms pay homage to the wanton pleasures of Storyville — the city’s legalized red light district that flourished at the turn of the last century. Each room has been decorated in a different shade of red and is named after a famous madame of the time.

No Weight Restriction

No Arbitrary Limits

No Massive Charges

We love and adore animals at the Creole Gardens Bed & Breakfast! Unlike most “pet friendly” hotels or bed & breakfasts, we don’t have a mandatory restriction on how many fur babies you can bring or how much they can weigh. Large and overweight critters like to go fun places too!


“Lagniappe” is a Louisiana expression meaning “a little extra.” It refers to our philosophy of giving guests “a little more” than they expect…

At Creole Gardens we have loads of “lagniappe,” including:

Complimentary Southern-style cooked-to-order breakfast

Our menu includes things like fresh gulf shrimp and creamy grits (a Sunday staple), sweet or savory crepes, blueberry pancakes, and fresh baked pastries. Other staples include cooked to order, locally sourced free-range organic chicken eggs, fresh fruit salad, yogurt, cereal, oatmeal, breads and bagels, coffee, tea, water and orange juice.



Friday Night At The Roadhouse

Every Friday night, our wonderful event space, The Roadhouse, is open to the public. When our very own DJ Black Queen Anne isn’t spinning R&B, Oldies and Soul, you can expect an exciting lineup of local New Orleans musical acts of all genres.

And even more, like:

Free Parking

Free WiFi

Gated Security

Flat-screen TVs With 100+ Channels
