This place sucks big timefrom Busterboots
Upon arrival, we were told our room was situated in a building off the main structure and our complaints were brushed off by both Madonna and the Manager, Cheryl Hedrick. They were both consistently unfriendly and uncaring throughout our stay. Cheryl was quite talented at giving us looks that made us feel unwelcome. Very professional.
Our room was situated in an ally with another building looming right in front of us. Picture a tenement slum. Our room had no window, an unsecure mostly glass door with numerous chain locks. We didn't feel safe. The room reeked of urine, the walls had cobwebs, peeling paint, and a truly disgusting bathroom. The tiles were falling off, the walls had mold and mildew and old thick lines of yellowing caukling were smeared around the fixtures. The bathtub was stained and the bottom was uneven and spongy due to the bathtub insert not fitting properly. The toilet did not flush properly;a plunger was there, for our convenience.The first day, the exterior door handle fell off, the toilet clogged, and the bathtub cold water tap became stuck. Too bad I didn't bring my toolbox with me.
Breakfast offerings were fine but we repeatedly had to ask for the coffee or juice container to be refilled. No one wiped the area so it was stickly with spills and crumbs. Gross.
I've stayed in many B & B's and I've always had a decent to very nice room and encountered friendly, helpful staff. This place totally sucked.
Go somewhere else!!

A bountiful continental breakfast is served every morning in a large dining room and complimentary Sherry is available in the afternoon. The Lamothe House has a beautiful courtyard complete with swimming pool and hot tub. On my next trip to New Orleans, I will definately stay at the Lamothe House as it is a great place!

t really so terrible as all that!!!from A TripAdvisor Member
We weren't interested in eating the continental breakfast, which looked pretty much like continental breakfast anywhere. After spending a weekend up in Mississippi we returned to Lamothe house and were given an extremely spacious Victorian room that was vintage New Orleans, on the main floor of the main house.
We did see the small rooms in the "slave quarters" and agree it would be very difficult to do more than sleep in these rooms.
It was mysterious that there were phones in both our rooms, but no phone connection. But I made all needed calls from the upstairs office at no charge.
The courtyard and pool area were quite lovely, and a great place to relax.
We found the staff extremely helpful and friendly. Our rooms were always clean, and our linens changed daily.
The location is great, very close to the trolley, around the corner from a couple of very good jazz clubs, and a quick walk to the centre of the French Quarter. Also just down the street from one of New Orleans' finest non-traditional restaurants, Marisol.
Maybe this is not the hotel for the timid or unadventurous, but any half-way seasoned traveller looking for good value and a good location would do far worse in many places in NO.

Top Local Tips for New Orleans
Faubourg Marigny Neighborhood and Frenchmen Street is New Orleans at its best!! After exploring Faubourg Marigny neighborhood and Frenchmen Street, I will be spending less time in the French Quarter. Incredible food and great music. This is the New Orleans that the local residents experience. Less crowded, more reasonable--this is New Orleans at its best.
Buy a single day or three day transportation pass early You can either pay $1.25 each time you ride the trolley/bus or you can buy an all day pass for $5 or a 3 day pass for $12. You just need to find out where you can get the pass before you really need it. We walked the entire French Quarter looking for our pass, and finally found one location (100 block of Royal) that sold them. You can buy it a day or so before you really need it, because it is activated the day you begin to use it. We really enjoyed hopping on the street cars whenever we wanted to and riding them around town!!
Avoid the frat party Bourbon street had a few hidden hot spots but for the most part I would avoid it unless you are into frat parties, neon lights, and frozen slushy drinks. The French Quarter is full of bars/restaurants so the chaos of Bourbon St. can be avoided. Also, try going to Frenchman street. It was lined with jazz bars and restaurants and is SO close to the FQ.
