My wife and I were looking for a last minute getaway after a very long winter up north. We had never been to Anna Maria Island on Florida's Gulf Coast. What a pleasant surprise. The Blue Water is an older, 50s-60s style motel....however the staff and how they treat their guests, and keep the grounds up was refreshing. This is... More

First, I have to say that this is the first time TripAdvisor has been slightly deceiving. We have stayed at 4.5 "blob" hotels that were much higher quality than this. Don't get me wrong, this place is good enough. It is an old Florida property that has been kept up with. It is clean and the staff were continuously cleaning... More

Rooms were very clean. Staff friendly and accommodating, told us of places to visit and local restaurants with excellent food. Had difficulty with room availability and they called when something opened up. Just as the website stated, resort was right on the beach. Would definitely stay here again.

My family has been staying here for about 30 years. It is an older motel right on the Gulf beach, sitting among the modern high-rises. It's family owned and cared for. They keep it clean and neat, make repairs and updates as needed, while keeping the old Florida charm. There's always orange juice and Lindt chocolates waiting for us in... More

Can't really say anything bad about this property just think a couple of things could be tweaked. Just as advertised this property is directly on the beach (yeah!). Our room was clean and bright. Loved the wicker furniture to add to the Florida beach vibe. We stayed in a motel-type room, but I understand there are apartment type rooms available.... More

My sister and I have been going to AMI for many years and only recently stayed at Blue Water for the first time. We were very pleased with this motel. It is on a nice quiet street and is a reasonable price for a prime location directly on the beach. We will definitely be returning. The one bedroom apartment was... More

A last minute decision to spend a couple of nights in the area brought us to the door of this motel since it advertises views of the water from every room. It is a fun " Old Florida"place.

I've stayed on Anna Maria--in this case, Holmes Beach--for several decades, so I know the area well. Discovering the Blue Water a few years ago was a gift. It's not pretentious, & it's not rundown. On the contrary, it is exactly what, for me, the Anna Maria area is all about: the charming, old Florida that is simple, lovely &... More
