This hotel has a great 5 day rental rate .But please do not expect much luxury. It has what you need with no frills what so ever. The pool area is nice. Easy access to the beach. Quiet area. The number one issue we have is there was no elevator. Pack light if you stay on the 3rd floor.

I'll be generous... The place is sad. Stayed in the "Lobby Apartment" for the Bike MS overnight. Huge. Kitchen appliances were new, the rest was not. Uneven floors; ancient carpet; weak lighting in the bathroom; ancient, rusted and broken fixtures; dust abounds; old sofas. Bathroom was a horror. Tiles in the wall of the shower stall were filled with mold... More

We went down for a few day get away. The staff was great, room while small was clean and comfortable for what we wanted....a beach hotel! They had a nice breakfast included in the stay. We enjoyed watching the fireworks from the great porch with many of the other guest and had a great evening. Would stay there again!

My husband and I were able to get away for a few nights a week ago and felt like reliving some youth at the shore. We enjoyed our stay at Blue Water Inn and found the staff to be friendly and the accomodations clean. This is a no-frills hotel where you can have a clean room, a couple blocks from... More

We went down for a couple of days just to get away. The hotel was cleam, the prices were good. Our room was a little small but we didn't spend that much time in their anyway. There is a great porch to sit on and relax in the morning or evening. It is 1 block from the boardwalk and within... More

I was there in June 2013, the hotel was clean, had good staff, provided a light breakfast and was 1 block from the boardwalk and within walking distance to many shops and small restaurants. The only thing that I found unsatisfactory was the comfort of the bed. But we had a great time. There is a nice porch you can... More

Upon deciding on a last minute trip to Ocean City, we booked this place based on price and availability. We could not regret this decision more. The room is small, loud (you hear everything!!), old, and a partially done and cheaply done "renovation". The showers are made for children (I'm 5'2 and found myself to have no space) and horrible...

Thought it was a good price so we booked it for a weekend. My wife cried when we walked in the room. I realized then why there were so many "no refunds" signs all over the place. Doors don't seal, toilets are terrible, shower looks like something from a camp site, exposed pipes everywhere , water leaking all over the... More

Blue Water Inn is such a good place to stay for a weekend. Great service, very clean, great location. I had absolutely no problems with it. Anyone that has anything negative to say about are very picky. This was a last minute choice too. I was very pleased with it and I would absolutely stay there again and recommend it... More
