This was a nice place for the money. The pool was small and parking was not the greatest we had to park on the other side of the building. It was clean and the staff were friendly. Trash was emptied every day and towels and washcloths were exchanged also

The manager was really rude since we arrived. The rooms was overall OK. The parking area and elevator were dirty and dark. Asked to stay one more night he said that the price is twice of what we pay for the first night. He is obsess with the parking.

Probably the best motel out there. (mind you I have very low standards for motels in VA beach) It's almost impossible to find an affordable motel with decent conditions and Blue Marlin suffices. The walk to the beach is short, right across the street is Harpoon Larrys a great restaurant, and Walgreens is 10 feet away. Rooms are decent. I... More

Second visit in a year and expected more for 200.00 night. Air conditioner went out and mgr. said, "no, it is fine, work fine." We waited (wasted vac. time) and said if it is not replaced by 7 pm, we need to look for another hotel. "No, no refund". Cap. One Visa would disagree. He tried to put us into... More

Firstly, I was a tad bit apprehensive about staying at this location due to the bad reviews. The price was reasonable. The reservation process was fast and easy. I paid for the first night while booking and the remaining balance at check in. The manager was polite and professional. The property was neat and clean. We were allowed to park... More

After reading some reviews, we were prepared for the worst but our stay was great! We stayed over the Fourth of July weekend. Our room was very clean and all of the hotel staff was very nice and very accommodating. The hotel was an easy walk to the beach and very close to lots of restaurants, bars, and shops. I... More

Apparently overbooked, no parking for paying customers. Elevator slow and no ventilation. Toilet Seat had hair on it. Hair found under sheets when turning down bed. That was the last straw! Did not even stay.

Before booking I had read the reviews for this place and was a little hesitant..But we took our chances and went ahead and booked it. So I thought I would write my review to express my opinion on this place! We arrived earlier then check in time but the man was nice enough to let us check in and gave... More

Here's the gist: don't stay here if you value cleanliness!! When we arrived, the front desk staff (seemed like husband and wife) were SO rude and very unfriendly. When we got to our room, the towels had nasty yellow stains on them, there were hairs on the sink and in the bed, the deadbolt was broken, there was mold all... More
