We spent one night here. It's not fancy but the room was very clean and the property management was very helpful and friendly. We had a nice view of the bay from our 4th floor suite. It took a little while for the room to cool down but by the time we were ready to go to bed the temperature... More

Don't get how some people complain and expect so much. Last time I came to this hotel, I pretty much hated it and when my family decided to stay here a couple weeks ago, I thought it was going to be the same if not worse. Fortunately I was wrong. I loved the remodeling and the room we stayed in.... More

My husband and I stayed three nights. We got a very low price on a 2 queen bed room with balcony. We had a disgusting room facing the pool. Unfortunately I didnt know all the queen beds suites were on the first floor. I wish I would have called first. Our room was clean, restrooms were large. Room also came... More

We booked on booking.com and made sure the room was good to go for the weekend. Our flight got delayed in Dallas and we called to notify and they tried to tell us that our (debit) card was no good, however it had plenty of funds. The hotel was even going to charge us for them giving our room away!... More

This was my first visit at this hotel. Completely renovated and updated. Nice spacious rooms, clean beds, large flat screen TV, small refrigerator and microwave. Free WiFi and continental breakfast. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would stay at this hotel again. I would like to see the balcony rooms and watch the sunset on the bay side the... More

Short version....We made the mistake of staying here during Easter weekend. Complained multiple times to the front desk about our neighbors smoking in their room and outside in the hall but it never ceased. Pool was literally surrounded by glass beer bottles, beer cans and whiskey bottles. People were partying around the pool until 4AM which is suppose to be... More

The #1 asset to this hotel is Kevin and the staff. Very attentive and genuinely kind. Although a great hotel for Spring Break fun-loving young adults, I would not recommend this for a family with younger children for that week. Lack of sleep for us in their comfortable beds. A good hotel in a good location. Lots to do when... More

We checked into Blue Bay Inn & Suites in early January and we stayed for two months. We would and have told many people they should stay at Blue Bay Inn. The whole staff is excellent; friendly, helpful, kind, and just a great group of people. They take great pride in keeping the whole place clean, and quickly fix anything... More
