Reviewed October 27, 2009

I've traveled extensively over the last twenty years both for business and pleasure and the Crescent stands out as a rare find. In addition to comfort, value, spacious, fully equipped rooms, it has what one so seldom finds in travel these days; character and heart. This is a property the owner literally helped built with his own hands. Michael (the owner) cares and it shows. He was sincere and un-hurried in helping us find places to eat, sharing with us some of the history of the town, and generally very friendly. There are properties close by charging twice as much (or more) with a fraction of the quality.

You couldn't ask to stay at nicer place for the price. The staff and the owner went above and beyond to make our stay the best . I couldn't be happier with the room and the the staff. thank you for the great week and I would not stay anywhere else.

Brand new independent hotel with owner on site - huge brand new rooms with a kichen - fantastic free made-to-order breakfast - the owner made cappucinos for me - the person at the front desk gave me a lift to my meeting location-

Feels like a personal European style hotel but with the modern and large room comforts- service they way it's supposed to be - don't stay in an overpriced faceless chain - support this guy!

Located in a quiet nieghborhood setting with restaraunts on Moody Street 4 blocks away-

I am going back again next week!

This was probably one of my most enjoyable stays at a hotel. The food was great. Service excellent. The staff friendly. Management was very accessible – even willing to sit down and play cards with guests or offer them gourmet cooking lessons.

Accommodations clean and extremely comfortable. Right off a trail along the Charles river - and canoeing right down from that. Quiet despite the large groups that would come to stay. Provided everything we needed, including cutlery, storage, flat-screen TV w/ DVD combo, etc.

The pleasant atmosphere was contagious – guests were very jovial and genial in common areas.

Seemed environmentally friendly, too. Loaded w/ energy efficient features and conscientious packaging of hotel products.

We'll definitely return!

This place is one of the best little hotels we've ever visited. It is spotless, the staff is hospitable, and the owner is extremely welcoming. The rooms are decorated tastefully. I have never stayed in an extended stay hotel room with such attention to detail....First aid kits in the medicine chest...childproof outlets....cleaning supplies in the kitchen. The hot breakfasts were amazing. The only thing I'd recommend is that you get down for breakfast early, or take it to go and eat it in your room....it is a small eating space and gets crowded easily. The neighborhood looks a little run down, but we never had any problems while staying here. We were here for 11 days. I love this hotel and wholeheartedly recommend it for traveling families.

We were attending my brother's wedding and this hotel was suggested to us as a good option. Boy, were we pleased with this choice! The staff at the hotel, and especially Michael the owner, were absolutely outstanding. The rooms were very large, spotless, and every single detail you could possibly hope for had been thought of and addressed. Need a DVD player? There's one built into the flat screen TV. One of your kids fall down and scrape a knee? There's a first aid kit in the bathroom. Need a corkscrew and some wineglasses? No problem--everything was in our room, ready for us to use. The beds were very comfortable and had lovely bedding.

We looked a little peaked when we arrived with our kids, after having been in the car for many hours. Michael immediately offered us cappucinos (which were amazing!). The breakfast changed each day, but was freshly made, frequently replenished and totally delicious. A few of my relatives who were not staying at the hotel arrived to see us while we were enjoying our breakfast and Michael graciously insisted that they sit down and have something to eat. Our children were not merely tolerated, either. They were treated as welcome guests as well, which was rather refreshing.

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. If you're near Boston, check it out. You will be pleased that you did. It is the best hotel deal we have found this year.
