Reserved on orbitz. When we arrived they didn't have our reservation on file and others were on the phone stating the hotel was out of rooms. The person behind the counter found our reservation when I showed him the confirmation email. He stated I was lucky he had one room left but it wasn't the balcony room I had reserved.... More

Overall this is a good place to stay in SPI. We have come twice for weekend trips.The staff has always been friendly and helpful. The rooms are always clean and they have microwaves and refrigerators. It has its few small issues, like the air conditioner in one room was loud and didn't work properly, there was a crack in the...

We arrived at the Inn and they took all our stuff to our room. It was a beautiful place. We faced the bay and saw some good sunsets. We had refrigerator and microwave and two beds. Nice floors and nice bathroom. Friendly staff on hand 24 hours a day. Waffles, muffins, danish and toast for breakfast. Next time we will... More

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
