First, I booked for 7 nights wishing to visit New Orleans. I stayed only 5 nights à this hotel. First, the hotel is quite clean and they close the very small parking lot at night. So, if you have to take your plane in the morning or your car, you have to inform the reception. Desqpite a clean room, I... More

I'm not sure what planet the other reviewers are from but this place REALLY is NOT a great place to stay. It started when my taxi driver said "Oh no," when turning onto MLK Boulevard. I read the reviews before I booked with Expedia.com and they seemed reasonable for the price. I judged one woman's review as high maintenance. Couldn't... More

Literally. In a rough part of town but this place is a great stay. I never felt in danger or threatened and never saw anyone questionable hanging around, but it is in a bad part of town. Walking around during the day wasn't concerning, we took the bus right across the street to city park and to the French quarter... More

I stayed here for Halloween weekend and VOODOO music festival for a total 3 nights. The inside of the room was far above my expectations for the price and considering it is a budget motel! Everything was very clean and comfortable and secure. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly especially Carol. She went out of her way to make... More

I was very nervous at first but we were very satisfied with the Crescent Palms. The neighborhood looked a bit sketchy but the hotel was clean and well maintained. We felt secure and safe. I can not say enough about the staff. Very attentive and helpful. Great folks. We used the bus/trolley to get to French Quarter for a cheap... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. I have nothing but good to say about this motel. The rooms were spotless clean and everything worked properly. When we arrived there was a friendly gentleman at the reception waiting for us already (we arrived quite late, about 9pm). He welcomed us and explained how to get around in New Orleans. The motel...

When travelling around the states with friends, we stayed at the Crescent Palms and arrived there by taxi from the airport. When driving down Martin Luther Jr Blvd, we were all put off by the area that it was in and worried that we had made a mistake booking this motel. However, once we got checked in, the man at...

We arrived at The Crescent Palms Motel the day before the Essence Festival activities. It was a decently priced hotel. We had no issues checking in. Like everyone else said, the manager is very nice and hospitable. I admit that driving up to the hotel we were worried about the neighborhood. It is DEFINITELY in the heart of the 'hood',... More

The rooms are very clean and quite. The manager Kendal was the most awesome person. He went so above and beyond what he needed to. To make our stay great. He told us the best places to eat where all the locals go to eat. Way better than any thing you'll get in the French Quarter. And way better prices... More

I arived 3 hours early and was able to be checked in with a smile and no questions. Gated parking lot which put me at ease. Hotel is a short 10 min cab ride from french 1/4 and there is public transportation a block away. Great stay with a professional staff! can not be beat for the price!
