We stayed at the Deer Crest many years ago and after a disappointing stay at a B&B downtown several years ago decided to try the Deer Crest again. We weren't disappointed. Though the rooms are somewhat dated they are well maintained and are along the beautiful Fall River. We stayed in the downstairs end unit and we were happy with our choice.
The positives: Very nice owners and a great lawn area out the back where you sit back and relax right along the river. At night it is so nice to hear the sounds of the river rushing past nearby. The king bed was very comfortable and the room was large enough to fit a small table and two chairs. Liked that the sink area was separate from the toilet and tub. The small refrigerator was new and didn't humm and rattle as they sometimes do. Liked that there was a DVD and free movies in the main office. We also had a nice private outside area where you could read and relax. The room was spotless. The parking was close by but not outside the door. Good value!
The negatives: Some room noise from upstairs as people walk around. If you are upstairs (as we were our first stay) the access to the rooms was from a walkway that ran on the riverside so if you wanted river views from your windows you also had people walking by your open windows.
Glad we made the decision to return and had a very satisfying stay.
