Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Historic Street Car Inn

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person. This is the most recent visit:
"Local Flavored B&B"
Overall Score2.5/ 5
For adventurous travelers seeking an authentic New Orleans experience, the Historic Street Car Inn will fit the bill nicely. Located in the Garden District on famous St. Charles Street, this eclectic bed & breakfast gives you location, location, location, without unnecessary bells and whistles. Each room in these 2 converted houses is unique and offers multiple layouts for groups and couples with en-suite baths. A light continental breakfast is served in the mornings, to start you off on a day exploring the city. There's plenty of communal space to recount the days adventures. Or sit on the balcony and watch the parades roll by during Mardi Gras. This inn is not for those that need fancy amenities or luxury furnishings, but a great fit for people who need a base for their travels that won't break the bank.

Verified Reviews of Historic Street Car Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great service. Nice place to stay."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I have nothing bad to say. The customer service was great. The stay was good. The only thing that I would say is that the beds in the room that I stayed in need to be updated. Also the comforters need to be washed. But other than that it's very good. Continue the good work. Will definitely be here next time.

"Not worth the money: $230 a night. Booo."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Location was good but the A/C was loud. Toilet didn't work. I would have paid an extra 20 or so for a better room. Place is old and the quality of the room showed the age. The beds were also terrible.
