I would've given this 5 stars except for the glitch when it came to housekeeping... But the General Manager made it up to us by offering a very nice credit to our Visa card & since the room was spectacular, the amenities off the chain... The pool was nice... The drinks at Mixx were fantabulous.... We will definitely be booking... More

Stayed at Hotel Blue this past weekend. The hotel itself was just ok nothing special our room was small and the bed was very stiff. We decided to stay here mainly because of the swim up bar and the hotel website saying they had I believe 15 pools. The pools were disappointing mainly because the majority of all of the... More

Customer service was great, staff was very friendly. Room was a disaster! When we first walked in - I just reminded myself it was old and not that bad. Then we had to use the shower. When I looked up, the ceiling tiles over the shower was covered in black mold. The tub was stopped up and by the end... More

My husband and I took a long weekend trip to Myrtle Beach. We had decided on Hotel Blue over others due to the hotel looking like it would be a fun place to stay and my husband liked the swim up bar. It was a fun atmosphere, with a DJ and the swim up bar, but the actual room was... More

Pros-- The staff. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. We were dealing with an unfortunate situation at another hotel (see my review for Coral Beach- ick) and were pretty upset when we walked in. After a few smiles from the staff here and the fact that they were able to get us into our room immediately, I wish he had... More

The hotel is in close proximity to the airport if you fly in. The cab ride should only cost you about 10-11 with the tip, so that is one of the positives of this hotel. The hotel is a bit dated, but it I wouldn't let that deter your stay. Our room was a double and was on the second... More

Arrived during the afternoon hours for a girl's weekend, and got an oceanfront room on the first floor - upon first inspection, the room looked fine (could have used updating, but no major complaints) After returning from dinner and walking the beach (late evening), we spotted a small roach on the floor near the kitchen fridge. Upon further inspection, found... More

We stayed in an efficiency oceanfront. It was an amazing view overlooking the pool. Loved the tile floors and the room was very clean. Hotel staff was the best I have experienced. The pool area was a lot of fun. Music, bar inside the pool. Will definitely go back!
