I had a unpleasant experience to stay at the Blue Marlin recently. I was looking for a basic hotel with no amenities, in close proximity to the start and end points for the Shamrock Half Marathon in Virginia Beach. The location was good for this event. That's the best I can say. The room had a kitchenette with stove and... More

They say never judge a book by it's cover...this motel makes this place out to be true. It looks shotty on the outside, but the inside is not bad at all. It's been recently renovated, which looks really nice for the price. The beds were comfortable. Everything was clean. The only thing I hated was the floors. The floors are... More

This hotel looks a bit run down from the outside but the rooms are adequate. Tiled floor in room was undesireable. Staff was very accommodating and switched our room after the last person smoked in our non-smoking room.

BLUE INN is in the process of renovating. Room 110 right next to the rental office and by the pool was very satisfactory to me. It is equipped with full fridge & stove, micro-wave, plenty of cupboards. But as of then (sept 2013) no table & chairs, no dishes, pots & pans. It will come as the owner/manger (?) told... More

We used to go to Blue Marlin many years ago. It started to become run down, so we stopped going. We recently found out that they had been sold and undergone major renovations. So, we decided to try it again. The rooms appeared to be clean. They have new furniture and the bathroom and floor was completely redone. Unfortunately, the... More

I was a bit concerned after reading some reviews, and my husband was ready to change hotels when I told him about some them, but we went wearily. We were surprised, and happy we stuck with original plan. I paid about 60.00 a night for a 3 night stay. I would say we got our money's worth. The location is... More

We were scheduled to arrive on a Monday and stay thru Saturday. At the last minute we decided we wanted to go a day earlier. Blue Marlin was able to accommodate us. We told them it would be a late arrival and they said no problem. We arrived at 1:30 a.m. and they were there waiting for us. The staff... More

The Blue Marlin motel may look like a regular hotel, but its not. This place had gorgeous rooms for the price we paid. The pool was nice and crystal clear blue, and it was very much relaxing. The noise level was good, and it was peaceful. The room had a full kitchen, comfortable beds, and a nice big bathroom. It... More
