“We love the Hotel Blue”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Yes, this is an older building, but it is in great shape and it is clean. I am sure there are nicer places to stay in MB, but you will not find friendlier staff anywhere. Everyone is great and the service is exceptional. I love that you hardly ever leave your room without running into someone that works there and they always greet you. It makes me feel very good to know they have people there all the time. The pool area is clean and always a lot of fun! Trips with just the girls are going to always be at this hotel from now on. Love the Hotel Blue:)

If family had not been staying at Captains Quarters who we wanted to visit and spend time with, we would never have stayed here. I can't believe they stay filled up with the quality of the room. It gives a new meaning to nastiness. We wiped down every door knob, handle, faucet, etc. with lysol wipes. The bathroom floor was filthy, with lint and pubic hair in the corners and behind the door...disgusting!! We wore our shoes to take showers and walk on the carpet. They really skimp on toiletries, one small soap for four people. We did have a full refrigerator, microwave & coffee pot, but there is no room to fix anything to eat. Our commode ran continuously, and when my husband looked at it, somebody had already tried to stop it by stuffing a washcloth in back of toilet. Really needs some thorough cleaning & remodeling. One more thing, if you're going to stay here anyway, bring your own pillows if you want to sleep!

Room Tip: Choose different hotel.

If you are coming for a great vacation or getaway, spend the extra $20-30/night for a higher quality room.

To start with the best feature of the hotel: the pool. The Hotel Blue pool is 4ft at its deepest with the majority of the pool 3ft. It is a small pool after taking out the swim-up bar. The highlight is a nice pool at the sister resort, Captain's Quarters, that has many activities for kids.

Now for the worst: the room. We had an oceanview double suite. The bathroom was very small. The bathtub had hair in the bottom of it upon arrival. They only gave us one bar of soap for 4 adults (shower and sink area). The toilet ran continuously and when my husband tried to fix it, he found someone had tried already by placing a washcloth over the bulb. I would never dream of taking off my shoes on this nasty floor. Our fitted sheets did not cover the mattress and our flat sheet barely made it from side-to-side. The bed was hard along with the useless pillows. We all woke with sore necks and backs. We will not be returning!

We would like to apologize for any issues you had while staying with us. Our pool is 4ft deep that is MB city regulations for any newer pools but we do have some at our sister property CQ that are grandfathered in. We are sorry about the condition of your room and have passed your comments on to the apporopirate managers. We strive to do our very best and we are always changing and improving. We hope that you will stay with us again in the future and give us the opportunity to show you this.

Save up your money and spring for a higher rated hotel. The main window in must rooms is facing the parking garage so you always hear car alarms, people coming and going, car and motorcycle noises...etc. The place was a complete dump. It wasn't clean at all. Luckily we spent most of our spare time on the beach. Don't stay here.

Thank you for writing a review, we would like to apologize for any issues you had while staying at hotel blue. Our OceanView rooms are on the side of the hotel from the 8th floor down and the entrance door do face the garage which some guest like being able to park right on the floor near their room. We do apologize about the noise and your comments have been passed on to the appropriate manager and hope that you will stay with us again in the future.

Everything was very nice and staff was very friendly. Hotel had a lot to offer for any age;hot tub outside, one inside, lazy river, pool, and poolside bar! However, the bed was very uncomfortable and made nights ruff. Lots of tossing, turning, and back aches.

We had a blast on our vacation.
A few friends and I stayed at Hotel Blue and we enjoyed it very much. It was spacious and had plenty of sleeping room for all of us. We loved the kitchen and the pool in the bar. The staff was also amazingly nice and made us all feel very welcomed.
Although we had a blast, I did step on a cockroach on our balcony, but that was the only thing I can find to complain about!
