Okay, let's not beat around the bush: this motel is pretty much a dump. It's an old, 2-level motor lodge style motel with exterior entrances to all the rooms. Motel and room amenities are minimal, and the "lobby" area seems to be frequently locked and empty (although the main desk guy is extremely friendly and helpful when he's around). So... More

First let me say it was the only affordable place to stay last minute and it was perfect for our needs. Kendall worked there and was so nice and helpful!! On his days off we did have to ask for new towles and got no room service, but thats okay, he came back to save the day. CLEAN!! large but... More

We stayed at the Crescent Palms Motel for 8 nights in the beginning of April 2015, and we enjoyed it very much. A bit far from the city center, but the bus stop is just outside and there's plenty of (free) parking space if you have a car. The rooms are spacious and clean, bathroom with a tub and organic...

We stayed one night before getting on a cruise ship the next day. It was fairly easy to find and lit up very brightly, but the surrounding area had abandoned buildings/graffiti. The parking is brightly lit and they have signs about cameras everywhere. Our rooms had very old furnishings and smelled musty - air in the room was very damp.... More

Very friendly, helpful staff. Rooms large and clean with everything you need. Safe area with a bus stop right across the street which gets you to Canal Street in a few minutes. There is a private roof terrace which is a great place to relax after a day or night in NOLA.

Quite nice motel. Located approximately 15 minutes away from the French Quarter. The look of the Motel from the outside was quite simple, but the room was spacious and the beds were good. Room only. A very Nice and serviceminded person duty in the reception and in the small bar. Coffee available in the morning.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here it's clean enough and everything perhaps a little musty smelling ... a funky retro place Be aware it is challenging to get to and from although on 2 fairly major bus routes they don't seem to run a whole lot in the evenings ... so you'll need to cab it ... at the jazz...

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
