Fairchild House Bed & Breakfast, New Orleans
Like many things in New Orleans, the Fairchild House has charm, but shows its age. The staff was very friendly, but I did not sleep well due to noise from other guests. My shower in the morning was also not so great due to a lack of water pressure. The price was better than anything else, though, and it did the trick for a one-night stay.

Adequate, but disappointing.
It was OK. The building is old, circa 1860, but the complete lack of attention to painting and fixtures was very disappointing. Two of the three middle mattress supports were broken on the bed. The mini fridge was setting on the floor so the door would not open due to the room rug. Sadly there wasn't a microwave. There was only one arm chair (table type) for sitting. The host and hostess were quite nice and provided wonderful advice regarding the neighborhood. The Continental breakfast on day one was adequate, but on day two, not so much with extremely limited choices. The hostess for breakfast was most helpful and did the best with what she was provided. On site parking was very nice and secure. I would say, change the combination key numbers for B&B entry. The 4 numbers are so worn off it wouldn't take many attempts to gain entrance. I don't mean to be so critical, but the value was just not there.

Quaint older building, nice stay.
This is an older building, so if you like a somewat historic feel to New Orleans this is the place for you. Rooms have the old wood floors from maybe the early 1900's. The breakfast was great and the people very friendly. It did have the smallest TV I have ever seen, maybe a 17" screen. My laptop was only a bit smaller. Overall a nice, quaint place to stay. Food that was one block away was awesome, and the trolley was only a block away as well, so location was great.Good wifi as well.

Great area
It was in a great location. Not too far from the French quarter. Comfortable beds and old but clean rooms. Has a lot of character
