The owners, Liz and Raul, were so incredibly welcoming, it felt like we were visiting old friends! This is a very unique and important restoration that was obviously a labor of love. The bed was super comfortable, and the fully-stocked commercial-grade kitchen was very convenient. There is a large, beautiful deck attached that was very relaxing in the later, cooler hours of late July in New Orleans. We will definitely be staying at the Inn at the Old Jail the next time we visit New Orleans, which we try to do every year. So much history is contained in this Old Jail, and we received a full tour with details of the restoration. We highly recommend the Inn at the Old Jail!

Fantastic Place to stay in NOLA
What a nice place to stay !! Highly recommend A++++ The owners are so nice and have put a lot of TLC into this place and it shows - we had a wonderful stay here. Quick cheap Uber to downtown or just walk like we did most of the time - enjoyed walking through the tiny neighborhoods in Treme. Kudos to Liz and Raul for a great place !!

Wow! Just Wow!
One of the best places I have ever stayed at. Lovingly restored over 3.5 years, Liz and Raoul have created a wonderful guest house keeping a lot of its original features. When we arrived, Liz gave us a guided tour and explained the history of the place and the stories behind the people who have rooms named after them. Both of them make you feel very welcome from the moment you arrive and have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We were on honeymoon travelling across The States and this was by far our favourite place. We will be going back to “reoffend” as soon as we can.
