Hotel Blue
Ranked #143 of 209 Hotels in Myrtle Beach
Reviewed December 4, 2013

Pros:
-Great price for value
-Excellent, incredible view
-As close as you can get to the beach shore
-Our room came with a well-stocked kitchenette -- we made a 2-person Thanksgiving dinner in here ;)
-There is a pool bar and a cafe. We visited in November, so both were closed, but I'm giving them some benefit of the doubt here for the summer months...
-Most room furnishings were nice
-Our room was clean and in nice condition

Cons:
-Stingy on some supplies -- one bar of soap, in the bathroom only. Would have appreciated some soap or dishsoap for the kitchen sink, esp. considering the room supplied dishes! Coffeemaker, but no coffee.
-Very firm bed and pillows. If you like firm sleeping, this is the room for you! But we'd have preferred way softer. Blankets were kinda scratchy, too.

Room Tip: There is a drive-up parking deck so you can park on the same floor as your room. The deck only goes...

I was surprised at how bland the room was. This is obviously a low budget operation. The soaps were the kind you find at cheap hotels. The hot water took so long I thought they had run out, but it did eventually warm up. The check-in person was fine. I didn't use the lazy-river or pools. I just thought it looked like a better place when booking online.

We have vacationed at Hotel Blue in the past and had a wonderful trip. This time however was a bit different. We arrived a little before check in time. Front desk process was very easy and the women cheerful. We walked into our nonsmoking room to find ashes all over the bathroom counter. The faucet dripped constantly. The floor was sticky and no kitchen towels. One bar of soap for all of the sinks and shower. The paint on the ceiling was falling down in clumps as evident on the bed spread. We were pinched for time due to a conference we had to attend so we did not request another room. We went to the grocery and bought stuff to clean up the room. The next morning we realized no coffee for the coffee pot or heat. Its November and it was cold but the heater wouldn't blow anything but moderate temp air in hear or cool mode. The view was perfect from the balcony.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room.

Staff was great, pools fantastic but everything seemed pretty worn out. Maybe because it was late in the season. The rooms were the biggest disappointment. We reserved a king size bed but was given a cramped room with two doubles. The room had an odor so we changed for a king bed. There was a coffee pot but no coffee and even thought it was clean, everything seemed old and worn. We enjoyed the balcony and the sunrise even on a side room. Great location for the hotel. Not too far but just far enough away.

A quick get away to Myrtle Beach on the off-season was excellent. The staff at Hotel Blue was fabulous from the moment we checked in with Nate till the time we checked out. The location was awesome and the facility was very clean.
