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

After such a great stay last year at the Blue Marlin Hotel, my wife, 2 boys and I spent 8 nights here again in 2014. The best part is the location, 1 block off of the beach. It takes about 3 minutes to walk to the best part of the beach (probably less tha it would take to get off... More

Staff was wonderful...Rooms were clean. Loved the fact they were tile and not carpet. But then of course this meant I could feel every peace of grit we drug in. Fridge and microwave were clean. Pool was small, but there never seemed to be anyone there but us a night. One block from the beach. Plenty of shopping and restaurants... More
