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

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...
