Idyllically located on Plum Island's magnificent beach with some lovely touches and friendly, accommodating staff; Blue has the potential to be exceptional but given the price, sadly falls short in some key areas. If you love the beaches of New England and are looking for some place less crowded than the Cape, the setting couldn't be better. Oceanview rooms are... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2016

Blue exceeded our expectations! This is our second time staying at the Inn and the first since the new renovations and ownership. From start to finish the staff was friendly and helpful. Upon arrival each unit receives an iPad to research excursions etc. Nice touch if you don't have a smart phone or your own device. Our room was on... More

The Hotel is in a tranquil spot but only a short drive to a lovely town with restaurants and great boutique shopping. All the staff are amazing and our room, the big one, was bloody fantastic and we can't wait to return. Loved every aspect of our trip and would thoroughly recommend to anyone interested in kicking back and being... More

We spent one night at Blue-Inn on the Beach. I think this may be the only hotel on Plum Island. The setting was beautiful. We had a queen oceanfront room. It had a porch separated from the other rooms by billowing white curtains. And then....step directly onto the sand. We left the window open to hear the ocean at night.... More

This was our first stay at Blue. We stayed for 3 nights. We were in unit 6, which is a queen ocean view room. It's on the end, which allows for more windows, in addition to the slider out to the porch, and appears to be larger than the rest of these rooms. It does have many of the building's... More

Location Location Location...Doesn't get any better. Staff was very attentive and the breakfasts delivered on our porch in a lobster trap. Poached eggs in a mason jar. All in unique fashion. We stayed in a cottage right opposite the beach & hotel and only steps to the water. This annual mystery destination surprise was for my birthday. My daughter in... More

From what I see Shannon is a great manager and extremely valuable to this property. Breakfast in a lobster trap is a novel idea. The rooms are clean and nicely laid out. The view and just stepping out your door to the beach is a wonderful attraction. Parking is very close.

As an Event Planner I am often looking for unique locations for parties, weddings, family gatherings, and other events, and am over the moon to be able to add Blue Inn to my list of go to locations. We held a thirtieth birthday party in the Blue Suite this past weekend and the event couldn’t have been more perfect. The... More

My husband and I loved every second of our stay at Blue. We cannot wait to go back. The price is well worth it. Our King room was spacious, modern, comfortable and clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The beach was great (although surf was a bit rough during our stay). It was the exact kind of getaway we... More
