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

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

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...
