We made reservations online for Blue Bay Inn on their own website. We reserved a room for one night with a balcony. We arrived at the hotel, checked in and went to our room. No balcony, just a regular old room. Went back to the checkin desk and was told that they mixed up our reservations with someone else. If... More

Things usually never go according to plan for me. Sadly, this has been the story of my life and my trip to the island with my family this past weekend was no exception. But thanks to the excellent service that the professional staff at the Blue Bay Inn & Suites provided, my weekend turned out to be one to remember.... More

I travelled to SPI with my 85 year old mother so she could see the beach and the bay and reunite with some old friends. This hotel was cheaper than others I looked at and I thought it was because it was bayside. At well over $100 I thought we would be getting a mid-range hotel experience. I was disappointed... More

The staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel is undergoing some construction, so if you want to sleep past 8:00 a.m., ask for a room that is not directly below or beside a room going through renovations. Their wi-fi was excellent. The hotel is on the bayside, so beach access is a few minute's walk. All in all, we... More

It is being remodeled, so there's tubs and mattresses on the side of the hotel. We weren't bothered by that. I do not recommend balcony view on the first floor. The staff was great! Very friendly, that sometimes makes a difference. We needed extra towels no problem. We did use the laundry room. Breakfast was ok. We had a happy... More

Had a good stay, but we were on a tight budget. Had 2 very small dogs, ended up 40.00 a night for both of them. I didn't find these prices listed anywhere on Website. Can see those prices if they were large dogs maybe. Staff very nice, hotel being remodeled, so had perhaps more outside trash than usual. Breakfast not... More

The hotel room was clean and well kept. And breakfast was ok but not great, if you choose to eat breakfast there do not be a minute late, at 9:30 am everything gets put away. The pool area was small and shallow it could use some updating and cleaned. The hotel is on the main strip which is good and... More

We booked with this hotel through Booking.com at $59 ($74 with tax) a night for a king room with a balcony and breakfast from a Monday to a Friday. When we arrived we actually got a single queen bed in a double room with the balcony, fridge, microwave and nice TV. No remote for the TV, however. The room was... More

We drove ten hours after booking out hotel months in advance, called to confirm twice, including the day of, arrived and they has given our room away. Rude, incompetent, unprofessional staff. Do not stay here the staff are deceitful and only care about money and filling room, not about cleanliness or customer satisfaction. Worst experience ever.
