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

First, There were 3 people at the desk when we arrived. No one acknowledged our presence. One was just sitting there looking at us. Then, they couldn't understand what we wanted. We had reservations. No thank you, nothing. I reserved an economy room and received the standard. They only cleaned the bathroom. The floor remained gritty with sand our 4... More

My husband and I lucked out and got a larger room with a kitchen area (Room 106) for the same price as a regular 2 double bed room. The room would've been perfect if only it was cleaner! The floors are tiled instead of carpeted, which I like in hotels - better chance of them being thoroughly cleaned. Unfortunately, that... More

Easy check in and good customer service. Everything was clean and seemed in good order. The room was very large and loved having a full fridge and oven with stove top. Second stay here and would definitely recommend.

We stayed at this place before it was renovated and thought we'd try it again now because it was a good price in a central location. For this price, I don't expect great quality, but I do expect at least decent cleanliness. As others have said, the floor was filthy. Like after two minutes of walking around, the soles of... More
