Blue Water Inn
Ranked #30 of 31 Hotels in Ocean City
Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

Had some issues with the first room we checked into, Ashley at the front desk was extremely helpful. She called maintenance immediately and they were there to try and fix the problem in less than an hour. When issue couldn't be resolved she moved us to a new room that was outstanding. It is an older hotel and because of its age it's "quirky" but very clean and comfortable. Will definately stay again just because of the friendly accommodating staff and location.

My family and I came down last week for a quick weekend get away before the kids busy summer schedule officially starts. A friend of a friend recommended Blue Water Inn and we could not be happier with our experience. It is located in a great area right in the center of Ocean City. We paid a reasonable rate and got more than we expected with nice TV in the room, close proximity to the boardwalk and an accommodating and friendly staff. There was also a nice pool area when the kids wanted a break from the beach. Can't wait for our next trip back hopefully again this summer!

Very good location in the center of Ocean City and close to everything. We stayed there twice with my wife - 3 days in 2012 and a week this year (2014). The room was nothing fancy, but for the great rates we got it was more than what we expected! There was a nice flat screen TV, small refrigerator and this year we got a great ocean view from our window. The staff was pretty nice and helpful and took good care of us. There is also a nice deck on the first floor where we had our coffee every morning. We will definitely stay here again next year!

First of all the pictures online and in the brochure look better then the room that we had. They state that the hotel is "newly renovated" but we saw no evidence of anything new. The hotel claims to be historic which is fine but it looked more like a hotel that rents by the hour! There were used towels in a pile on the bathroom floor, along with hair all over the sink and in the shower. We couldn't tell if the sheets were changed or not. Small refrigerator was also disgusting. The whole room was just dirty. Also we stayed on the 3rd floor with no elevator (and I happen to be 9 months pregnant...) the price was WAY to high for the room ,regardless of how close it was to the boardwalk. The only positive was that we watched the fireworks that were on boardwalk from our hotel window.

This hotel has a great 5 day rental rate .But please do not expect much luxury. It has what you need with no frills what so ever. The pool area is nice. Easy access to the beach. Quiet area. The number one issue we have is there was no elevator. Pack light if you stay on the 3rd floor.

Room Tip: We love the 3 bedrroms

We went down for a few day get away. The staff was great, room while small was clean and comfortable for what we wanted....a beach hotel! They had a nice breakfast included in the stay. We enjoyed watching the fireworks from the great porch with many of the other guest and had a great evening. Would stay there again!

My husband and I were able to get away for a few nights a week ago and felt like reliving some youth at the shore. We enjoyed our stay at Blue Water Inn and found the staff to be friendly and the accomodations clean.

This is a no-frills hotel where you can have a clean room, a couple blocks from the beach and boardwalk, and pretty low cost. They had a great breakfast included in the stay and a pool that looked nice but we didn't have a chance to get in.

Overall enjoyable time and we would do it again if we get a chance to get away during the summer.
