3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed because we got an oceanfront room for $41, at the last minute, via Tivago.com (check it out). We normally stay with family or in newer resorts when we are in MYRTLE BEACH (3 times or so per year). The check in process was fine, the desk staff was friendly and even gave us toiletries we didn't have with... More

Nice location on the beach. In walking distance to a lot of food places as well as Main St businesses. Lazy river, outdoor pool and jacuzzi on site. Bar and lounge area in hotel for use. Nice size room with kitchen and wall bed. Great weekend getaway!

Right on the beach. Suites are perfect for families, with kitchen, full-size refrigerator, large coffee machine, living room, balcony, and safe in room. This isn't the Ritz, but we found it was clean, and close to everything. Staff was great too!

This was the most filthy hotel I've ever been in. This was unacceptable and unlivable. We had to leave after they refused to move us. Our anniversary was ruined and we had to drive all the way home because we couldn't find anywhere else. This hotel should be shut down!!!

Fast check in and friendly staff. Room 302 had a great view of the pool and beach, was at the end of the hall and very quiet. Excellent free wifi. I had a complimentary breakfast at their sister hotel which was very substantial. the pool was a bit cool. Plenty of pool chairs and lounges. Large hot tub. We didn't... More

After reading the reviews we were a little scared to stay here. We were surprised to find our room very clean. We did not have any problems at all. We did not see any bugs what so ever like a lot of the reviews state. We even added a night to our vacation. The outdoor pool was cold but it... More

The bathroom had hair on the floor and in the sink...carpets were nasty..pulled the hide a bed out and the mattress was all rusty. I was literally turning door knobs with a cloth as it was so dirty. I hardly slept... More

When looking for a hotel in Myrtle Beach it's easy to become overwhelmed. After long debates over price, location, and ratings my family chose to go with Hotel Blue. And we're glad we did. Easy check in. Walking into the rooms everyone said okay this is pretty nice. Walking onto the balcony everyone said oh wow this is amazing. We... More

My sisters and I decided that it was time for us to get away. I chose Hotel Blue because I stayed there a few years ago, and it was nice. The good things about the hotel: Easy check-in, park on the floor you stay on, close to entertainment. Okay... So here goes... We park, go in the door to the... More
