We booked our stay with Hotel Blue back in January 2014. We requested Ocean Front view, which we got. My only advise is make sure you request for a high level room (15 floors). We got level 3 and it was right over the pool where everyone could see into your room. We asked to move higher and level 5... More

Besides the poor and rude customer service, outdated rooms, elevators that feel like they are going to brake, parking deck that is super dangerous. We had bugs in our room. Huge bugs! The exterminator sent to kill them even gagged while killing one of them, it was that big and gross! Then he wanted to spray chemicals in the room... More

First off arriving the parking deck is way to small for two cars to get through there, it's gonna cause an accident. Next the elevators were a mess. My particular room was a oceanfront room with two beds and a kitchen. The rooms are a little small. The swim up pool bar was awesome but it was really dirty, and... More

Swim up pool bar is awesome! Feels like you're in the islands! But the loud high pitched music ruins the rest. All music sounded alike, no variety. So loud you couldn't listen to ur own music with headphones. Or talk to people next to you. Rooms are ok, could use better housekeeping. But over all good for the. $$ Unless... More

The rooms were not very nice with tile floors older furniture and ancient bedding, but this is a hotel for the younger crowd with bass pumping music from the pool deck and an 'in pool' bar it was a lot of fun and I actually would go back but certainly not bc of the rooms, for the same money u...

Dirty pool matched the nasty rooms hallways and elevators. This hotel caters to drunken twenty somethings. Do not take kids there! Nothing on the grounds is kept up very well the place is more like a frat house. Pool bar was not as attractive as depicted on the website. Indoor lazy river nasty and not working.Only decent part of the... More
