“We really enjoyed our stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

The exterior of the hotel looks very contemporary from the street, especially at night with the (obviously) blue lights. The staff was super friendly checking in and I thought it was nice that they were accepting donations for the March of Dimes. Charitable businesses are always better because they tend to actually care about others! We were on the 10th floor, but the parking garage only went up to the 8th floor. This wasn't really any inconvienence though because with a lot of other hotels in Myrtle you end up parking off site somewhere. The downside to the parking garage being right beside the hotel really didn't apply to us, but there are rooms that face the garage. It would be super annoying to have cars honking and driving through at all hours of the night. These rooms also looked kinda sketchy, so I'd recommend the ocean front rooms for sure. Our room was much nicer than we expected and we loved the full kitchen. The bathroom was kind of small and the water pressure was close to painful. I can't complain though because most hotels have really low shower pressure and that was definitely not the case here. My only real complaint about the room is the beds. They were really hard for my taste so there was some tossing and turning. Otherwise, everything was great. You have to go to Captain's Quarters down the street for the restaurants, arcade, bowling, etc. But it's a short walk and the breakfast buffet was pretty good! The pool area with the bar looked awesome but it was a little too cold for us to try it out. I definitely want to return on a warmer weekend and spend some time at the swim up bar!

Room Tip: The ocean front room was great, but there are some rooms that do not have the view. They face either...

My Wife & I check into hotel on 04/12/2013
for a weekend getaway
When we arrived they said our room was on second floor
I requested above fourth floor
They took care of that right away and we got a nice oceanfront king room
The only other problem hotel a little run down , but still nice
The big issue is the stairwell smells like a restroom at a bad gas station
Take the elevator.

Room Tip: get an oceanfront on a high floor

We had a blast even though it was chilly! The outside pool was warm enough for my children and my husband and I stayed in the hot tub. Very relaxing. Staff extremely pleasant! Everyone spoke! Highly recommend this location to anyone!

I was so pleased with my stay. The staff were so very nice. My room was spotless. I loved the swim up bar and the outdoor hot tub. The music was a bit too loud for my taste. I do wish there were more shaded areas. The hotel is located near everything, you can walk to almost everything.

Room Tip: Ocean side rooms are nice, can be noisy with the music if you have young kids. Elevator is slow, I w...

I always look forward to my visits to myrtle beach, especially Hotel Blue. I just wish the off season specials would run during the summer months, that way I could visit more often. Being on a limited budget, and also a cancer patient prohibits my return visits. Always therapeutic therapy for me to be able to unwind and relax at a place I so love to visit. Thank you hotel blue!

Thank you for being a loyal guest of ours. We really do appreciate it. While we wish we could offer the same rates during the summer as the off-season, unfortunaltey, we cannot. We do however run lots of specials. We hope you can continue visiting us during the winter months and enjoy some relaxation with us. Fighting cancer must be so hard, and we applaud you for fighting with grace. If we can be of any assistance in planning your next trip, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Had a great time. Wish there had been more shaded areas around the pool that would have enabled us to enjoy the heated pool and the hot tub a lot more. The price was excellent and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful.
