“Hotel Blue-Warmest pool in the off season”
Reviewed October 13, 2011

Took a little "Mini" vacation went to Myrtle Beach. Saw Hotel Blue's "amazing" rates. Reviews were only OK..but I went anyway. AMAZING VALUE...Yes the rates were extremely low...But the pool(s) were amazingly warm...swim up bar was still open and the ocean was right at your doorstep. No this is not a "super thrills" motel, but if your looking for value and want to soak in a warm pool in the off season, this is it. If it weren't for some of the entry ways from the parking lot and some of the hallways being a less than desireable I would have given this place an excellent.

Room Tip: First floor poolside rooms are perfect!

We have been going to Myrtle Beach for years and Hotel Blue was the best hotel we have stayed at. Our room was clean and the hotel employees were all so nice. This is not what a lot of people would consider a luxury hotel due to the fact it is not a brand new hotel, but lets face it sometimes new is not always better. My husband and I had the most relaxing time and enjoyed our stay so much that for the first time in years we honestly wished we had more time to stay. So thank you Hotel Blue for a wonderful relaxing vacation!

Room Tip: We had a oceanfront with private balcony Great room

We came to myrtle beach for a relaxing vac. What we got were a bunch of headaches. Almost everyday had to go to lobby to get new room keys because ours would not work. Room was disgusting wife wiped up water spilled on the floor and used one of their towels when she picked it up it was black from the dirt on the floor. The rent a cops they have for sec came to our room at 11:45 one night accusing our sons of shining laser light into the hotel across from us and we were all asleep so i know it wasn't them and they don't even own a laser light. the next night the fire alarm goes off so we have to evacuate the bldg at 12:30 am and it was just a false alarm. Then to top of a great time there the hotel cleaning crew left our hotel room unlocked for almost 2 hours and needless to say someone stole my wife's purse with all her credit cards and cash but the hotel deny's it was their fault so if you plan on staying there good luck it is a real dump.

We came to Myrtle Beach, SC last night, hoping to find a great hotel. We found a couple of our first choices were booked for the night, so we started checking on hotels farther down the beach. We ended up at Hotel Blue. It looked pretty and modern from the outside, but our "suite" was dirty and very outdated. The hallways, elevators and room were all dirty and smelled terribly bad. The king size bed in the suite was so hard, there was no way we could sleep on it. The bathrooms were dirty and the toilet would not stop running. The lamp shades were stained badly. I could go on and on about how awful the Hotel Blue was, but suffice it to say we did not stay the night. We did end up at a very nice hotel and are enjoying our stay, but we did not get our money back for last night, even though the staff was aware we did not even unpack. From now on, we will always heed the complaints being made at the front desk when we arrive. The only good thing about Hotel Blue, is that the staff were very helpful and nice, although they were fielding several complaints when we arrived.

We went to MB for our anniversary and although the original hotel that we had booked out didn't turn out quite as expected, this one was great. We got an oceanview room on the second floor and we had a blast. I mean how often do you walk into one hotel and get free reign to another one? The only complaints that I have is that their restuarant needs to stay open longer, they need to upgrade the amenities in their rooms---new tvs, get an alarm clock---that type of thing. Aside from that, we truly enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Ocean view room on Second

This was the worst hotel ever please save your money...
It's a little better if you get a family room run from the king/oceanfront rooms
STAY AWAY FROM ROOM 602....

Room Tip: Make sure to get a family even if it's only for a couple.

From the outside, this hotel looks very nice. The front desk people were very friendly at check in. We were given an oceanfront room on the 9th floor. After check in, we navigated the tight parking garage to the top; there were a few "gangsta" looking teenagers shouting stuff at people in the parking garage; although this is not the hotels fault, they should have more security patrols, as it gave me the unsafe feeling of being in the ghetto.
The room was spacious, but I found it rather tacky that the floors are tile floors, no carpeting, and there were mirrors on the head boards. Really? Mirrors? That's just gross.
The view was fantastic, right on the ocean; we stayed on a Friday night, and the bar next door had Karaoki, which we enjoyed, but I am certain that others would find it loud and obnoxious.

No problems with billing or anything like that, The plumbing seemed fine, lot of water pressure in the shower, but because of 3 things (the people shouting over the balconies, no carpet on the floor, and mirrors on the headboards) I will not stay there again.

PS We ordered a pizza from a national chain, and the delivery guy told me that during certain times in summer, they will not deliver there, because it is a dangerous area.
