Historical Traveler Reviews McMurphy's New Orleans
Great experience, despite IVAN
We came to McMurhy's(Maggie) and we got the feeling that we would never want to leave again.
Than came IVAN and we wanted to leave, but could not leave and Maggie took very good care of us.
She incorporates all good things about hospitality, an absolute must for everyone traveling to New Orleans.
We want to come back one day, but in the mean time we tell all our friends about this place
Just the right level of everything
This was just a terrific place to stay. Just the right level of conversation, service, food, drink, hospitality; friendly but not into your business. Very nice people. Except for relatives and close friends homes this is the most "fitting" place we have stayed in NOLA in 20+ years and many visits.
" Only place to stay in New Orleans"
What a wonderful, relaxing place to stay! The hospitality was superb and Maggie made my stay extra special. Only place to stay. Baerbel Merrill
The ONLY place I will stay in New Orleans
No one is prepared for the pampering, relaxation and convenience that awaits you at McMurphy's. Maggie makes you feel as if you have your own mansion in New Orleans with a staff to take care of your every need. The beds are roomy and comfy like the Four Seasons, the decor beautiful, the porch is stunning, and something you want to bring back to reality when you get home to sip cocktails on or read. Simply said, if you want a slice of heaven, stay there!...We LOVE it.
Hospitality that comes from the heart
when you arrive at Maggies you know that you have come home.true hospitality can only come from the heart,and when you meet Maggie,you know thats where it comes from.
with Maggie there are no strangers ,just friends she hasnt yet met.
We wouldn't stay anywhere else!
It's like having family in New Orleans. The kitchen is the heart of the home and there is always something amazing awaiting you. If you're on a diet, the temptation to indulge in Maggie's baked goods would be too much for you--cookies, cakes, you name it. So skip the diet when you go! My husband is an early riser, and he loves having morning coffee in the kitchen with Maggie as she creates something wonderful for breakfast. As for me, I love to sleep late in the wonderful big bed, with the luxurious sheets. I first coaxed my husband to McMurphy's to see their beautiful porch. We were designing our dream house and I couldn't convince him to put a porch on the Italianate structure. Maggie steered us to other beautiful Southern homes in New Orleans, and we enjoyed our tour. After our visit, and seeing first hand how relaxing a front porch can be, Maggie and I turned him around. We can't wait to go back. It's more than a place to stay. It's a warm hug from a welcoming Southern Lady.
From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave Maggie will do everything possible to make your stay absolutely wonderful. Maggie and family make you feel like you're one of the family. Our stay consisted of wonderful evenings on the porch chatting about anything and everything to waking up with the smell of muffins from the kitchen to the absolutly terrific breakfasts Maggie whips up. The room was beautiful, comfortable and very clean. Maggie will even guide you to the hot spots in New Orleans.
When you get there, say hi to Maggie from Kurt & Joyce.
The place to stay in NOLA
Maggie and family are the best hosts we have ever had in our stays at B&Bs. During our first trip she ensured we went to and ate at the best places in NOLA. As we left, we felt like we were part of the family. On our second trip, we were truly treated as family ;) Once you've stayed at McMurphy's - you will not want to stay anywhere else. Oh yeah, the breakfasts are to die for as well!!! We love you, Maggie!!!
Home away from home
We could not have chosen a better place to stay on our short trip to New Orleans. McMurphy's was WONDERFUL. The owner, Maggie, made us feel so at home that we hated to leave. It felt as though we were leaving our family. And, the bed....well, I have already inquired as to how to replicate the comfy, cozy bed. Everything from the welcoming morning coffee to the evening cocktails on the fabulous front porch were just perfect. If you go to New Orleans and don't stay at McMurphy's, you are truly missing out on the real Southern hospitality. Aleisha G., Denver.
What a wonderful time
From the moment we stepped out of the cab, Maggie exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the Oak Room. What a beautiful room. This was the first time we stayed in a Bed and Breakfast, and I believe that she has spoiled us. The room, breakfasts and hospitality was amazing. Sitting on her porch and having drinks with her was like being with an old friend.
If she makes her cookies you are in for a real treat.
We can't wait to go back and see Maggie and her family again.

... go back and capture it. It's firm in my memory. I can see it when I close my eyes. The water was glass. A fishing boat. Two men. A cast net. Shadows. Thin tie off points or pylons sticking out. Reeds and banks in the fore ground. Reflections everywhere. It would have been worth crashing the car for and taking the shot off the airbags... it was THAT good. Maybe I should have let Jock drive? We pulled into the first place we could. Stacked stilted holiday homes in like ...
... cooking and it very fine! Southern cooking (read heart-attack material) but oh my, it is good! We have a share plate with fried catfish, gumbo, alligator sausage, fried chicken, red beans with rice, sticky ribs, greens and jambalaya. But wait, there's more...also included is dessert- bread pudding with an amazing toffee sauce. We are very impressed. The service here (and in most of America) is fabulous. People work hard for their tips and in restaurants, they are ...
... cleaner, he was such a showman and the stuff was fantastic so we bought a bottle.
Caught a Trolley bus along the dock to the Louisiana Aquarium. It was great. Huge Tarpon were the highlight for me. I took too many photos for the rest of the party's liking.
Then we went to the, nearby, The Crazy Lobster for lunch I had Gumbo and Jambalaya. I had the entree size - should have had the appetizer size. Entree, pronounced ...
... that jenny and I were sleeping with him. So, later on, after jenny and I were tucked away nicely in the van, Dylan hears a knock on his door and opens it under the pretence that it was one of us. It was, in fact, his ex girlfriend who was in a fit of rage. Apparently, she stormed in and attacked Dylan. She was scratching him and this was proven by the red scratches all over his body. He then ran out to our van to get a witness as he did not want the police ...

Matt and Nicci went off to do a Cemetery and Voodoo tour while we waited with Mike and Nicole to get into our room. We got in about 1.30 - our room choice was 'run of the house' so basically whatever was available at the ...
