Crescent Suites Hotel

Reviewed 20 October 2013

My kids must have said, "This is the best hotel ever!" about thirty times in our one day stay. From the moment we arrived we felt like we were valued guests. Upon our first steps in the door, we were offered cappuccino and the kids were won over with hot apple cider with extra whipped cream. The staff members were all warm, funny, and welcoming. Our room was immaculate; so much so that I found myself looking everywhere for a hidden crumb or speck of dust, which I couldn't find anywhere! Everything looked brand new and the beds were very comfortable. We didn't utilize the kitchen much, but it would be a big draw for a family visiting on a budget. The complimentary breakfast provided plenty of options. We will definitely be back and wish we could have stayed longer.

This place is very close to Boston and minutes away from popular routes in the area i.e., Mass Pike, RT 128 and more. If you're here on business, this place is close to major companies... not to mention good restaurants. One thing that sets this place a part is their friendly service. Tim, who sits at the front desk, is super helpful and genuinely cares. I was sitting at the cafe one day and heard him talking on the phone... he went out of his way to help someone find another hotel because this hotel was booked. He's always good about giving directions to people too. I read the 1 negative review and I'd ignore it.

Hands down best in the area as we had to stay two nights elsewhere during our 8 week stay in Mass. BECAUSE THEY WERE BOOKED SOLID. This in of itself says something. Comfort, cleanliness, and true personal hospitality. No fake smiles here. The employees all are very happy to do their respective jobs from top to bottom and it shows.
Being family owned and operated you could think they would have to cut corners to keep up with the bigger hotel chains but here it was the exact opposite. Larger hotels could and should learn a thing or two from these folks. Plenty of thought went into the design and comfort of this hotel and it shows.
As is always the case some people just can't be pleased or are difficult to please at the very least. If this hotel doesn't please you no hotel can.
If you are looking for a hotel within reach of everything in the Boston area this is the place. It is really 15-20 minutes away from everything in every direction we had to travel.
Truly a home away from home, bed and breakfast in a hotel setting.
No white gloves, no fancy name tags, or poorly designed host/hostess outfits to greet you.....You will know everyone by name simply because both they and you will want to.

Everything that is positive on the rest of the reviews is true! Clean, spacious, quiet neighborhood, easy to find, friendly staff, yummy breakfast, fast internet, and reasonably priced (for Boston and for the amenities.) It is a shame it is listed as a B&B/Inn versus a hotel because it would be number one in Waltham period! I occasionally come to Boston for business and when I do I will absolutely stay here again! A gem! I am so glad I use trip advisor when looking for places.

Impressive small hotel. Located in Waltham in a residential/light commercial area. Close to public transportation, local colleges, and central Waltham. Extremely clean, pleasant and very friendly staff, owner on-site. Helpful information available on local attractions. restaurants, transportation. All suites with well designed features. Small breakfast area with great service.

Nice to find a small hotel without the chain name on the sign....and the owner on site. The location is in a mixed residential-commercial neighborhood, convenient if you are visiting Waltham (Brandeis University 5 minutes away, corporations). The suites are 2 rooms with a well-equipped kitchen, king size bed, and 2 flat screen televisions. There is plenty of free parking in the back. The hotel is located about 2 blocks from Moody street where there are many shops, restaurants and a few convenience stores. The breakfast was quite good with eggs, sausage, bagels and fruit and freshly made real cappuccino...not the powdered garbage.

The Crescent Suites Hotel is just amazing. It's rooms are immaculate.
And beautifully built and furnished. Everything you could ever need is in
the suite. What a pleasure and a big surprise. The staff is friendly. And
the owner takes pride in this hotel as Europeans do better then
anyone else. Please go their it is unique.
