The place isn't great or anything, but in that area with that kind of money two rooms with 2 beds each and just show up on the fly , it'll never happen, , is right by the beach a 3 min walk.... we don't assume anything when traveling so we pack everything in case we find trouble in paradise...lol...

This hotel was dirty and the door to the room would not lock and when we notified the front desk they said they would send maintenance. Maintenance arrived and tried to give us another room. We decided to leave and will never return!!!!!

This place is a dump. It does not reflect the pictures they show. There is garbage piled everywhere. There were people doing drugs in the parking lot. IT IS NOT A SAFE MOTEL. We were coming back from a week Honeymoon in Hatteras. We wanted to spend the lat night in Virginia Beach before taking a flight back to Florida. The place is nothing like the website. We told him we couldn't stay there. He said he understood and would refund the money when i said it was false advertising. He copied me and Booking.com with the email stating the refund. He refuses to issue credit now. Booking.com refuses to help even though they have the email.

basic inexpensive hotel near the beach...the people who run the place were very nice, and let me check in at 1:15, even though he check-in time is 4:30. I found that the a/c unit was leaking, told the man at the desk, and he told me it would be fixed within the hour, and it was. The room was typical for a cheap motel near the beach during beach season - if you want luxury, look elsewhere. If you want a sufficeint little place to stay while you hang out at the beach most of the day, it was fine for me, and I found the owners very pleasant, to the extent that I wonder if they are different than the owners mentioned in other negative reviews. Plus it was almost a hundred dollars cheaper than anything in the same area, so it seems unreasonable to complain about a budget motel doing what it's supposed to do, providing cheap adequate housing in the right location.

If I could rate negative I would ! Blue marlin motel is dirtiest hotel I’ve ever stayed at. The first room I visited the bed had stained sheets, and the cover had stains and it looked like somebody left dead skin under and on the bed, the bed was noisy and overused, the tv wouldn’t work and the floor was dirty and dusty, and the doors and the bathroom ceiling was riddled with mold. So I got another room there and that room was worse than the first one. The bed still had stains and there was roaches on the floor, the dressers, the doors, toilet and bathtub were dirty, the walls in the room had cracks and holes in them, there was mold and stains on the walls, the sink would flood and the room smelled like urine. Though I didn’t record the damage in the first room I have video proof of the second room. The front desk lady was also very rude, disrespectful and refused to give me the rest of my money when I decided i could stay in the motel at all. Their service is trash. The motel is trash. I’m calling the Virginia Beach Health Department because no way that The Blue Marlin Motel should be in business they need to be shutdown. They are putting their customers at risk with the mold, cockroaches, and overall cleanliness. Completely disgusted with them and their service. Would 100% not recommend anyone to stay here. Save your money.
