We stayed at the Blue Whale for one night in mid-October, well after the summer crush. Upper deck, so it was quiet. A basic summer-type room, odd spaces, but serviceable. Other reviews mention junk lying around and there did seem to be a bit of a casual attitude toward exterior neatness. Seemed a bit like it was all tired after a long, hard summer season. The room was fine, the bathroom fine. I'm not sure this would be my first choice for a summer beach trip, and I think one has to take the website and photos with a grain of salt. But as long as one doesn't have high "beach resort" expectations, the Blue whale is just fine.
