My boyfriend and I stayed July 11-15. The hotel was about HALF of the price of the condos and other hotels in the area. It was in a very good location with just a short drive to the beach. But PLENTY of things to do within walking distance. The hotel was very clean and the bedroom was very sleek looking.... More

I decided on short notice to go to SPI. We were only going for 1 night and the Blue Bay was very reasonable priced. We booked a king bed with bay view balcony. The hotel staff was very welcoming and check in was easy. We were on the 4th floor and our room was just fine. Had a great view... More

The room was somewhat noisy from the pool area below. The pool and spa was always overrun with families. The sliding glass door to the balcony could be replaced. The door runners did not seem to have been cleaned for a long time. We also had to clean the glass door in order to have a clear view of the... More

We book balcony room which is awesome! The inn is very close to sonny's parasailing and american diving place. To public access to the beach only 10 minutes. What's more, they have waffle maker for their breakfast!!!

We stayed Sunday night through Friday morning in room 208! It had a balcony over the pool and a great view of the bay and the bridge! The room was nice, clean, and had carpet, thankfully! (The beach and sand does not mix with hardwood floors and no broom!) The staff was very nice, accommodating and very helpful! My only... More

The front desk staff was very accommodating and honored the price I saw online (through Travel Advisor) The rooms are basic and no frills. The hotel itself is in dire need of some renovations yet all in all wasn't a bad experience. The breakfast was kinda a joke yet we were warned by the front desk. The room we stayed... More

Our family came here for a brief Spring vacation at the end of March 2016. Originally, we reserved a double queen w/ a balcony and a double queen. We asked that the rooms be near each other. However, they were separated by a hallway. There weren't working exhaust fans in either bathroom. My husband and I had the queen with... More

Daughter and friends checked in for Spring Break and were up front with staff when making reservations that there would be a 5th person in the room. There was an additional charge to have that 5th person in the room (twice as much as what the website advertises which was paid). When checking in, they were told they would have... More
