We just completed our first trip to Myrtle Beach where we stayed at Hotel Blue. We were very happy with our room, the view from our balcony was great, the registration staff as well as any hotel staff we encountered during our 3 night stay were smiling and friendly. We didn't leave the hotel at all on Sunday, the DJ,... More

I wonder why people here had such a bad experience cause personally I had a great experience! Mainly the receptionist Rochelle was very helpful with my check-in and the general process. Room was decent, and I loved the swim up bar! I would stay here again based on the service alone.

My husband and I were here from September 15th 2014 through September 20th. We had read the reviews on multiple sites for this hotel and we really should have heeded the warning. First we had gotten on their website and found a room for $414.40 for the duration of our stay. I called the number it listed and the woman... More

I picked this hotel based on pictures and the fact that they are the only hotel in Myrtle Beach to have a swim up bar. I was very embarrassed when we got there because I booked the hotel for my boyfriends b-day weekend and another couple went with us and they kept saying it was very nasty :( . The... More

Get over yourselves people. I'm here right now. I've seen nothing to complain about. Clean rooms..clean pools. Nice staff..great parking. Sure it could use some updates. But you didn't pay for the myrtle Beach hilton. Ita a place to sleep and shower. It's the beach. Not your home forever. I recommend it with no second thoughts.

I've been to Myrtle Beach several times, and this is the worst place I've stayed. Everything is just in overall disrepair. One lamp was filthy and broken (couldn't turn it on), the other had a wire poking out the top. The couch had several questionable stains all over it. The beds are basically a mattress as hard as the floor... More

Saying bye to beach is so darn hard! One thing that's not hard about leaving the beach is our hotel. DO NOT stay at Hotel Blue! HORRIBLE!!!! Right outside our room was a GINORMOUS roach, this thing had to be the size of a silver dollar! It was so big that neither one of us wanted to kill it. We... More

Ha what a Nasty joke this place is. We booked this hotel through getaway Dealz. Stayed in an ocean front efficiency. GROSS and Disgusting. The balcony floor was carpet or appeared to be so. It was literally rotting away, always wet I did not dare go out barefoot. Please keep looking this place should be gutted and remodeled
