“never again”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

when we checked at the front desk the first thing was said dont look at the room look at the great view of the ocean. i must say that the ocean was a lot better view then the room. we had no chairs to sit on and everything you want you pay for. the breakfast well lets just say that i have had a lot better and i do mean a lot better. there is one thing that i can say the room was what it was a place to rest your head no more then just that.

Room Tip: look harder there are many other places then offer much better then hotel blue

Our first stay at this hotel. Lovely oceanfront efficiency. Great rates, clean rooms and very pleasant staff. Centrally located to the airport and all the great restaurants and attractions.

Room Tip: I would suggest oceanfront to anyone who loves the sound of the surf.

Purchased a one night deal on Groupon for a one bedroom suite. Bedroom window was facing into garage and living room sofa was black with filth. There was a huge whole punched in entry way wall. I went down to front desk and asked to be moved to a room that did not have a window facing into the parking garage and was offered a room with 2 double beds (instead of one king that I originally requested). I said that would not work and that I needed a King bed, oceanview, and that I would be willing to pay extra charge. She immediately found a room available and charged me $1.00 (yes, one dollar) to upgrade. This room was much better, much cleaner, although not half as nice as their website photos. The pool area is the selling feature of this hotel with a swim up bar but was not yet open for the season. I will not return.

Room Tip: oceanview only.

The room we had (king suite) had a very neat set up that was perfect fr our family of four. The room itself was clean..sheets, tub, floor..etc. My issue was the couch was nasty! We covered it with a sheet (that housekeeping gladly provided) and there is a 6in gap between the murphy bed head and the wall. That gap had so much nasty in it, we left the bed up. The walls haad stains too :( The hotel is a motel so beware: anyone can acess anything on the property, you do not have to have your hotel room key to get ANYWHERE. The motel needs updates but they do clean everyday, even wash down balcony chairs. The restaurant is only open until 2:00 and only in the summer :( THe swim up bar closes at 5P whch stinks and they were only open once durring our visit. The Captains Quarters had more of a "toddler" swim area that is nice, they bowling is nice, but restaurant closes real early. Hotel Blue's pool is nice but the lazy river is nasty..I think people get in it with sand all over themselves and it turns the water yellowish green. It is best to swim there first thing in the moning before it turns colors. I don't think I wold stay here again because there are so many other choices on the beach,

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the ocean, not just an ocean view. ALso, parking is only up the 8th floor so...

My husband and I checked in for a nice long weekend 3/22-3/26/2012. Lobby looked okay little unkept but thought room should be okay. Well was I WRONG, this place was FILTHY examples: wallpaper coming off of walls and corners in hallway ripped off...this was just getting to our room. Once inside the room it had a musty old odor, sticky tile floors, the bathroom fan sounded like a jet taking off, mold in the tub and the fake wood peeling off of the bathroom sink cabinet. This place was like it had not been maintenced since the 1980's including the decor. The indoor lazy river water had a nice grey hue to it? Gross, we didn't even unpack and requested a refund. Believe me spend the extra $50 bucks and stay at the Ocean Park right down the street!

Room Tip: for a reasonable priced room but clean and still Oceanfront stay at the Westgate or stay at Ocean Pa...
