Tried to sleep but couldn't do to some party going on outside the bedroom door till 3 am. Advised manager who then said you will have to call the police if you want quiet. Didn't offer to move us to a different room. Got woke up at 7 by street noise. Got up with a back ache due to sleeping... More

Booked after reading reviews for other similarly priced places in VA Beach area. We found it to be clean, convenient, and roomy! Had a kitchenette - great amount of space for 4 adults. (Do bring all kitchen items you may want as it's not stocked but does have full size fridge, stove, oven, and microwave) Rooms have been recently remodeled... More

The Good- Great location! The room was decent for what we payed. ( The bed was small) But room was clean and did not stink of ciggeretes. The Bad- if you are looking for a good uninterrupted night of sleep this is not the place. Between party goers at the bar beside the hotel, fire trucks etc you will not... More

Location- you can see the ocean from the balcony & everything you need is within walking distance. Great view of fireworks at night. Friendly staff/management- everyone greeted us when we saw them and management was easy to find if you had a question or concern. Good rate Maids made beds, took out trash and bought clean towels/wash cloths everyday(although they... More

Not a very picky person, but this place is disgusting! The beds, floors, and towels were dirty. There was mold all around the mini fridge. Food around the microwave.The staff was not friendly when we complained. They simply moved us to a new room. Which by the way was not any better! This place should be shut down. Or only... More

Pulled up to the hotel, didn't expect much. Got to our first room, and it wasn't even cleaned from the last people who used it. The manager apologized and we got a room with limited ocean view. The pool is a little bit small, and the outside appearance is kind of old school as well.

No frills and not super clean, plus the staff are not overtly friendly and they do not restock toilet paper/soap daily. But there is wifi and it is a two minute walk to the beach. So if you're looking for beach proximity and don't care about amenities, this is a fine spot.

Pulling into the Blue Marlin I was not expecting much due to the fact that the outside looks run down and a little seedy but the manager was nice and let us see a room before checking in and I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms on the inside look very new and are very clean. The floor is tile which... More
