Blue Marlin Motel
Ranked #87 of 109 Hotels in Virginia Beach
Reviewed October 23, 2012

I booked this motel for a 3 night trip to Virginia beach... i had to book multiple rooms due to number of people in our family on this trip and I booked the cheapest hotel available near to beach. the motel location is on pacific ave and just behind Walgreen. it was just a road crossing to board walk. When we entered our rooms - it was a pleasant surprise. we could see partial ocean view from our window and we've got all fully renovated rooms with nice furniture/LCD/new flooring/wall/bath room. They could have charged double for this room. I recommend for this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for partial ocean view rooms as they are at same price of interior rooms

I expected a hotel that was run down. I only booked it for the night to beat the holiday traffice and stayed the rest of the weekend at a 3.5 Star Hotel. Everything is what I expected...that is until we made it to our room. WOW! New beautiful ceramic tile, new microwave, new fridge, new TV...the place was totally renovated! We paid $10 extra for a view of the ocean...it was definitely worth it! The bathroom was renovated as well...new new new and nice! Perfect location! A very pleasant experience and I will definitely stay again for our next vacation. Manager was very friendly and let us park there so we can spend the day at the beach after check out. First class! They are still renovating a lot of the rooms...can't wait til entire renovation is complete. The family and I, including my picky wife, enjoyed the stay!

Room Tip: Get the 'ocean view' room!
