Picked this hotel because I brought my 15yr daughter along to visit a friend. The location was perfect for teens and me too! The hotel looks a bit dated from the outside but once you check in, it all tranforms. From the lobby to the rooms every detail was attended to when they rehabbed this hotel. Just perfect.

We stayed here for 3 nights in March for spring break/college visits. It was a great location - lots of restaurants to walk to. Rooms were comfortable, clean and it was nice to have the mini fridge/microwave. We had a nice view of the ocean/pool w/a small 3rd floor balcony. We also liked that they provided pool/beach towels. Took us...

I came from the Midwest with my youngest son. We had a rental car, but chose to walk to the chain pharmacy, grocery, and a few restaurants. We stayed 4 nights and played on the beach everyday day and night. Although, 2 days were spent at local attractions, we have just decided, when we come to Blue Sea again, playing...

The beach or the pool? It was hard to decide each of the 4 days we spent at this gem of a beachside hotel. So we did both. Our newly appointed oceanfront room overlooked the pool, and even though it was the height of spring break, it wasn't noisy. There are great restaurants within walking distance (we recommend Truckstop for...

I loved the location and the great million dollar view for such an affordable price and the heated pool and jacuzzi and the ability to see the ocean while you're enjoying those.
