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... More

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!

We appreciated the honest reviews of other visitors so I wanted to contribute as well. We arrived around 7 pm to a locked office and a note advising us to call John. Right away I was nervous, but John arrived momentarily and was wonderful. Got us comfortably situated in room, brought in a hair dryer and more towels as I... More

I had the pleasure of visiting this great old motel recently. Unlike other older places, the owners didn't just clean up and paint, they completed renovated. The rooms are great and do not smell like a 50-year old motel. The staff is awesome and the price is right. The location is convenient to public transportation-bus and streetcar-and the neighborhood is... More

We were very pleasantly surprised with our room.... VERY clean and even smelled clean! The staff here has been so very helpful and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was a pleasant one! The rooftop patio was a nice touch too.

My husband and I and our 3 friends stayed at the Crescent Palms last Christmas. I can't speak highly enough of the place, especially the staff. Managers Kendall and John were amazingly sweet and helpful. They went out of their way to help us in many occasions - even when we were stranded without a rental car and no more... More

Just returned home from a week stay in NOLA. We are so sad to see it end. For the value, you can't beat this hotel. It is a healthy walk to the Quarter through a rougher side of town, but we had zero problems and the local people were very kind to us. We took cabs back at night. The... More
