Spent 3 nights. Close to downtown, on historic Route 66. Breakfast is served but no daily variety. Same food every day. Pool okay but no hot tub. Room was large and had a Tempurpedic bed. Room decor is dated but clean.

Traveling with family we booked this for two nights. While I was checking in, my wife waited in the car. The park across the street roped into a fight with the vagrants/homeless. In 10 minutes she saw a guy shooting up (heroin?) and two guys attempt to beat another with a bat and tire iron. The desk attendant kindly refunded... More

Hotel Blue is conveniently located right on Central and really filled the bill for our needs. The rates are very reasonable for value received. The rooms with 2 queens are pretty small but the ones with 1 king are roomy. The pool is a nice size and very clean with both sunny and shade areas, with grass and trees on... More

Our family stayed just one night. Our room with two beds was clean and comfortable, if just a little crowded. The service was good, as was the location. We would stay here again. It was great having a gated parking area as well.

My bf and I looove this spot. They give a musicians discount if he is playing with his band at one of the nearby venues (Launchpad, Sunshine Theater, several others), the continental breakfast is quite good, and everyone there is incredibly helpful and nice. There is great food choices within walking distance as well- everything from diner fare, Italian, and... More

Six of us stayed in the Hotel Blue for a week in June! We had a marvelous time and we're all treated in such a friendly, helpful manner. From the front desk to the shuttle drivers, we could not have asked for more. The hotel might need a little paint, but the rooms were clean and the beds were excellent.... More

I use this hotel frequently since I do a lot of shows at the Launchpad. The rates are very good. The hotel rooms are really nice and clean. The downtown view is beautiful. Staff are friendly. I recommend this spot. It's located in the heart of downtown. Great place to stay if you want to check out our downtown.

Picked this place because it was close to old town. It was nothing too fancy and even a little bit dingy but I didn't mind. I'm sure there are nicer places in the area. We were on the 4th floor on the side with the pool so it was a little loud in the evening when the pool was busy.

Went there alone and for the 1st time to attend a conference in Conf centre, downtown, june 2007. I booked there 7 years after and found the hotel unchanged. Friendly staff at the reception. We were 3, wife, myself and son, 17yo. Great breakfast, nice beds. Should say that rooms are still unchanged with an old-style air conditioner, a bit... More
