When I booked this place on behalf of my college-age son, I had "reservations" (pun intended) because of the on-line reviews. But my son was adamant that this was the place to spend spring break, because it was so inexpensive. Well, he got what he paid for. He said it was filthy and horrible and that they spent as little...

Had a two night stay. Motel sort of reminded me of something you see out of the movies. Didn't visit the pool but the room was awful, there was bugs EVERYWHERE. A/c worked (that was the only plus). Tv was like a 12". Also, there was no deadbolt on the door. Pillows felt 20 years old, and sheets weren't even...

My fiance and I stayed at this motel for a night and this was the worst night of my life. I spent the night on a chair because we couldn't cancel the reservation. This place is truly a health hazard and shouldn't be in business.

There were unidentifiable stains on the walls and floor. The room smelled disgusting. The AC had mold in it. Saw a few roaches... The bed also had bed bugs!!! Thankfully I had an air mattress. If you ABSOLUTELY must stay here, bring sandals to wear around because the carpet and shower is filthy. There's a sleazy strip club next door...

They had a security guard overseeing the parking. Dodgy characters wandering around. Room was bearable. Pool not well maintained. The highlight was The Anderson Pub right around the corner. It was trendy place with fun people that were eager to converse. Highly recommended - the Anderson that is.

Its a good place and value for money but can do with some refurbishment and more cleaning. If the swimming pool was clean i would have swam but was full of dirt. Also need more deckchairs and make the place more fun!

I had to find a room last minute. I searched through several and was looking for some place for just me to crash at for the night. Motel blu was perfect. It's not a luxury hotel and it's quite out of date. But it was clean and cheap and provided me with a perfect service. The room even had a...

The rooms were not too bad, at least other than the couple of cockroaches we encountered. There seems to be quite a bit of prostitution in the motel, and in fact, one was trying to solicit my boyfriend right in front of me. The worst part? The staff. With the exception of the young lady who checked us in, the...

Stayed here for 1 week - It was near where i needed to be but the area is full of prostitution at night and it is questionable as to whether the main stay of guests are involved in the trade! There were a few roaches and cleanliness was bordering acceptable. One day a homeless man took a bath fully clothed...
