Historical Traveller Reviews of St Vincents Guest House Hotel


from A TripAdvisor Member
Someone made a good start in turning this place into what could be a very lovely and charming place, but it obviously being mismanaged. It was absolutely filthy. We had to make our own beds, and they did not provide mattress pads or towels. There was something smeared on the bathroom wall, the floors were unvacummed, the lock on the main door was broken, and worst of all, an infestation of what they swore were "termites." The "termites" were in my bed. I couldn't get out of there fast enough, and they did not want to refund out prepaid reservation. Had to be very assertive to get our money back. Stay as far away from this place as possible!!!!!!

t waste your time or money

I found this site too late. I also had to pay but did not stay. The room was scary. Our reservation had been lost and after 10 minutes of waiting they pulled out a totally nasty room. Of course no apology. We asked to see another room and were told there were none. Of course they charged my credit card 1 nights stay and when I called to speak to a manager I got the run around and then lies and then downright nastiness. Horrible people. They had so many conflicting falsehoods from, we were shown"many rooms', to the person who made the initial reservation and never told me the cancellation policy doesn't "work here anymore" Very unprofessional. had to scramble around New Orleans durring a busy time to find another place clean to stay. Very upsetting when your over 1,000 miles from home.

Had to Pay, but Would Not Stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
False Advertising. House and Rooms do not look anything like the pictures. Filthy, Dirty, Disgusting, Sagging Beds, Stained Carpet, Huge Cracks around the doors. We decided not to stay upon arrival, but they told we had to pay anyway. Please do not fall for the scam. It cost us $91.06.

This is a Gem

from A TripAdvisor Member
Please ignore the bad reviews for this gem of a hotel in New Orleans Garden District. The hotel is a beautifully restored orphange and a typical Southern style building. The manager, Peter is very friendly, very helpful and a great personality. As are all the staff friendly.
The breakfasts are good and cooked as you wait and the rooms are all airy and well-maintained. And the price is very much right - excellent value.

We had a delightful stay and opted to stay on another night so this'll tell you something - and we're experiencing all sorts of hotels in travelling across the States from end to end.

I can't recommend this place highly enough: close to the city centre, in a safe and beautiful neighbourhood, friendly and excellent value.
I'm telling all my friends.

Worst hotel stay of my life!!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
This place was awful beyond belief! For over a hundred dollars we stayed for one night. The room smelled damp and musty, they didn't have any towels in the room. When we asked for some, they gave us one bath towell and two hand towels for three people to share! No pillows on one bed, damp beadspreads and I wasn't sure the sheets were clean, and nasty carpeting. The bathroom was clean, but no shower curtain and uneven water temperature. I can't believe they call themselves a guesthouse. Believe the reviews people and stay away. They are about 15-20 minutes away from the french quarter, trust me, it would be better to drive in and park, than to stay there. Stay Away!!!!

absolutely disgusting! A crack house is cleaner.

from petaminNo1
I"m a good sport, but this place defies description; condom wrappers on the staircase, pee stains (and I mean adult) on the sheets, every wall surface had what looked to be some a mixture of boogers, blood, or other body fluids, there were bugs everywhere, both dead and alive - the place was absolute filthy. Even better, the front desk person tried to tell us that our double room should be "double the price" I would sleep in my car before I would stay here. Absolutely horrible.

mardi gras 2004

from britgerman
it was mardi gras, there was a 15 minute walk to the parades, but it was cheap. and there was free parking. and we could come and go as we please. but they did give 3 of us 1 queen sized bed to share, we were too drunk to realise til after though and they over charged us from the original internet qoute. take your email receipt with you!


from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel is without a doubt, the most disgusting hotel I've ever stepped foot in! (I travel for a living!) The reservations were wrong, The 5 different rooms I looked at were filthy, gross, and had no fully operational plumbing! I was promised my money back, yet have yet to receive credit for the room. Congratulations to St. Vincent's, you scammed me out of $112!!! Please, do yourself a favor, don't even book yourself a room at this rat trap!

Great deal!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I highly recommend this lowkey, relaxed little hotel. Friendly staff, nice rooms, close to the Quarter and the Garden District. For the same price you would have to stay way out in the outer suburbs and you get a great breakfast as well - it seems like a great deal.

Good time in New Orleans

from A TripAdvisor Member
We arrived late, (1am), but they kept the front desk open for us and checked us right in. The manager in the morning was very friendly and helpful with booking tours. I had the best pancakes ever for breakfast.
Our room was quiet and clean and quite pretty. I would really recommend this place to anyone who wanted to save a bit of money while staying in New Orleans. With the money saved on accommodation, I was able to go to Emeril's for dinner, which I probably couldn't have afforded if I had been paying over $100 a night for a hotel.

Top Local Tips for New Orleans

The Saint If you like late-night hipster bars, try The Saint just two blocks down the street from St. Vincents!

Check the Garden district hotels - they offer better deals Check the Garden district hotels for price and locations - they offer better deals. the down town hotels over NEW YEARS are outrageously priced

Taxi's Are Great The only way to get around in New Orleans is by taxi. There are so many one-way roads, it is difficult to maneuver around.
