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

We visited with our "Wildwood Crest Family" again this past June (23-27). Another wonderful stay with the best people in the business. Everything was great as usual, and we had a wonderful week. Looking forward to heading back soon and spending more time with Linda, Charlie, Rita and "Mom" Audrey! Best place in the Crest! Clean rooms, affordable, beach view... 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

Even though Linda was so nice over the phone and the first 30 minutes of our stay there...she gave us an attitude. The next day she was even worse screaming at guests from one side to the pool to the other very unprofessional and rude. This is definetly not a way to treat guest if she had a problem with... More

I am very disappointed to say that this hotel is not nearly as nice as all of the wonderful five star reviews would make it out to be. As those reviews say, the owner of this establishment is indeed very, very friendly to her guests. However, I would also like to think that the people who read reviews on here... More

I have been staying at the Blue Marlin during the Elks Conventions and there is not a better place to stay. Clean rooms and steps from the beach. Love the view from the 3rd floor patio. Linda and Charlie just make you feel like part of the family. With everything changing to condo, it's good to know that old time... More

We liked this hotel and stayed here for many years with no problems, the location is great and staff is friendly. But this past year, we booked ahead and unfortunately it was the hurricane weekend. We called to try to cancel but Linda told us we would lose our deposit if we didn't show up. She said we will have... More
