Our family stayed at the Blue Marlin this past weekend. Everything was perfect. The new updated rooms were super clean (which is hard to come by in WW). All kitchenettes, bathrooms and beds were NEW. Nice flat screen TV's. A few steps to the beach. Everyone was nice and overly helpful with anything we needed. Would absolutely come back again.

The New Blue Marlin is a must see/stay. A complete renovation has made my home away from home for 48 years beautiful. The new owners/manager is working very hard day and night to get everything in place for the season. The renovation along with the superb location makes the Blue Marlin one of the best properties in the Crest! See... More

After 10 years of vacationing at the Blue Marlin, we can honestly say we have always had the best time and some truly great vacations. Since day 1, Linda and Charlie have always been extremely accommodating and just a lot of fun to visit with. The Motel is very comfortable, clean and 100 steps form the beach. Rita and the... More

If you want the lap of luxury, go somewhere else, but if you want value, cleanliness, friendly and relaxed, the Blue Marlin is the place to be. Family owned and operated, clean heated pool, steps from the beach. Owners pleasant and accommodating. Yelling at guests????Must of had a good reason. We never heard the owners raise their voices. Noise? You're... More

We have stayed at this motel on and off for the past 20 years and I swear there has not been anything new at all during those 20 years except for the addition of curly corded phones. Even the draperies and 1950s gas cooktops in the efficiencies are THE SAME! The only reason we stayed here was because it was... More
