A friendly hello, helpful, knowledgeable and accommodating staff and attention to special details are all features that make Blue Crescent Hotels a true small-town jewel. Blue Crescent Hotels also incorporate our unique differentiated room designs in all our properties. These rooms are designed with the bathroom in the middle of the room, dividing it into two separate spaces.

Options include a double queen, with a queen bed on either side of the bathroom or a single with one queen bed and a queen-size pull-out couch on opposite sides. This design gives more privacy and allows families and others to be able to do one thing, while the other side does another. Two TVs in each room also allow for more privacy from your travel mates.

Microwaves, mini-fridges and coffee makers are also standard in our rooms. Our properties have many room designs and layouts to enjoy so please stop in sometime and take a look. Blue Crescent Hotels: Big City Comfort, Small Town Hospitality.
