The room itself was relatively updated and appeared clean, for the most part. I had a beautiful view of the ocean, even though it was not directly oceanfront. It was very conveniently located. The hotel itself looks like an absolute dive, stairways were dark and stairs were literally falling apart, and the elevator was also questionable. It cost WAY too much for what you get, even at peak season. One bed didn't have a top sheet on it and the bedspread looked soiled. It was also VERY NOISY.
Proximity to Boardwalk Room was filthy. Beer stains on nightstand, bugs crawling around, strands of hair everywhere, looks like it hadn't been cleaned in a while. Bathtub was disgusting. For $200 a night it wasn't what I expected.
NOITHING My friends and I arrived at the Blue Marlin on 6/9/15 at 12:15 AM. There was no one at the front desk and all the lights were off. We rang the bell, knocked on the windows/doors, called the phone and walked around the building. We waited around for 20 minutes and no one came. We went to another hotel and even the person working there called the Blue Marlin office for us and no one picked up. I called the next day requesting my money back and the hostess claimed that I was a no show and kept speaking over me. I asked to speak to the manager and he said he was the manager. Never been treated this way by someone that I was bringing business to. NEVER booking this place and never ever recommending to anyone.
I liked the location. It was one block from the beach and was easy to walk to restaurants and shops. I didn't like the dirty room. Looks like no one cleaned the sheets and no one bothered to clean the floor. Appliances in the room were damaged. The inn had a college feel to it because many other visitors hung outside their rooms smoking weed and getting drunk. They were very loud and you could hear everything from inside our room.
The room was non-smoking but smelled very strongly of cigarettes
Only one block from the beach, honored a late check-out, hot water+water pressure great, brought clean towels without having to ask, beds were pretty comfortable, closeness to bars if you're traveling with friends/ spouse, no problems with parking Loud at night
Really enjoyed the location. It is centrally located near restaurants, bars, and the beach. Everything is easily accessible. Room smelled like smoke when I walked in.
Location The room was dirty, the bathroom was dirty the sink was broken and it had roaches in the bathroom
Staff was friendly and the hotel was close to what i was doing that weekend. Room was damp all weekend. No fridge, alarm clock, microwave, no soap or shampoo, Nothing! Just a room and a bed. We will never stay here again. People running the hall all night. People coming and going all day. Not guest there either.
The cleanliness of the room. The fact that the room doesn't have carpet.
Nothing Not worth the price for the accommodations provided.
Easy Check-in. I specifically asked for a non-smoking room. When we got to our room it absolutely reeked of smoke, and there was even an ash-tray provided in-room. When I called the front desk, they said I did receive a non-smoking room when clearly I did not. GROSS!
Convenience of the location. The room I was assigned smelled like mold and cigarette smoke. The comforter on the bed was stained and had hair all over it. The front desk person said that I must have a virus when I requested the move. I had to buy an air freshener to survive the stay.
It was close to the highway Well The hotel said it had a pool, but I didn't know it was going to be on the floor. All my bags got soaked and so did the tablet that was in a bag. Had to wear wet clothes must of the day. It was kinda nasty and after using the elevator we were to
Nice staff. Grounds very clean. Great location. Didn't clean pool regularly. Only chair wooden.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
The place was much bigger than I expected. It was the best priced room I could find near the beach and it had a full living room with 4 person dining table, full kitchen, 2 futons, 2 queen beds and 2 bathrooms. Nice size. They had plastic on all the mattresses as well as the pillows under the sheets. It got greatly deducted because of that. I felt like I was sleeping on plastic. Terrible.
Was to be a king suite and it was a double full suite, smelled like cigarettes even though it was to be a non smoking room, bathtub was cracked, lighting fixture in bathroom was damaged and sparked when turned on, door broken at bottom and did not lock
size of the room....location was great....staff was friendly and helpful.....exactly what we needed. think someone was arrested directly outside of our room one evening around 0130 am...does not sould like the person resisted and police officers sounded friendly.
Was pleased and shocked with the size of our room. So much space. Everything was clean and the staff was nice. Perfect location from the beach and attractions. Wifi was really slow and could barely connect to. Our remote for our TV was broke, but small stuff in the scheme of things.
The hotel room was spacious and clean. I didn't feel safe and the parking spaces were tight and ridiculous.
The location was easy to get to and very close to oceanfront and the Convention Center. Pool was beautiful. Staff was very nice. Did not see any bugs even though dirty. You walk in and the switch cover is broken half off. All the chairs were terribly stained. The couch bed had stains all over the matress. Stove top grease burned on. None of the outlets worked correctly. TV 19' big TV. Bathroom dirty. No coffee maker.
The motel is only a few blocks away from the beach. So we were able to leave our car parked, and didn't have to pay for additional parking. This motel is completely outdated. The rooms smell like mildew and stench air. We had to buy wash clothes, cleaning supplies, and disinfectant to spray on bedding. There is onlt one old model TV in the room, and the sofa bed mattress for old and thin.
Location Dirty, lots of rooms visited by police all weekend.
Dirty rooms (they were cleaned, but had an overall grimy feel) I would stay there again. Bring dishes, because the kitchen has appliances, but no utensils, etc. Pretty good deal all considered.
King bed was a california king, kitchenette was well kept and fully functioning other than the over Some mold/mildew in the room, some of our pillow cases and bed sheets had stains on them when we first arrived, oven was inoperable
i like the comfort and the fact that it was near the beach. the manager was not cooperative in helping us resolve issues we had during our stay. and we found dirty clothes, beer bottle tops, and dirty cups in the room. this made me wonder just how clean the room actually was.
Notting.. I never recommend to any one...Comforters and beds are very dirty..Full of bed bugs.. Bathrooms also not clean.. Comforters and beds are very dirty..Full of bed bugs.. Bathrooms also not clean..
I liked that the staff was very friendly and went out of their way to help you out.
They had a pool Breakfast choices wearn't so good, kids running around screaming at 9 something. The place had an awful smell in the lobby and dinning area.
nothing the breakfast was a joke. the location is horrible. the room was dirty. i definitely would not stay there or at any motel by this name again.
The price Some people played music and BBQ'ed next to the pool until late at night. Although the staff did manage to stop them eventually
location nonsmokibg rooms smeled bad and saturated with the smoke.
Location was convenient convenience of getting to second floor rooms..
The beds was horrible. Advertise HBO and did not get it.
They had three airplane pillows on a king bed. The pillows in the room were extremely small. I asked the fronk desk person for some extra pillows and they brought me one pillow that was slightly bigger than the rest. I had to go to Walmart to buy two pillows just so we could sleep comfortably.
No extra pillows available and the pillows in the room are very small and flat.
Room layout, had sitting area with loveseat & tv, with a small kitchen area that included a sink, refrigerator, microwave, & 4 cup coffee maker....then the sleeping area w/tv. It looks run down & dingy from the outside. The staff was unorganized & not professional at all. I was charged an additional $2 by the first person helping me at check in, then that person had to take a phone call, so a second person stepped in to complete the process. They had no idea what the $2 charge was for. Our first room assigned was a mess, uncleaned, & looked like someone was living there. Our second room was good. The following morning a fight breaks out in the parking lot & we listened to someone screaming & yelling for 1/2 hour. Not good.
They had piles of discarded furniture outside, perhaps because of a recent bed bug issue or similar. The staff was worthless and had no control over the facility. There was a couple screaming at each other off and on outside in the middle of the night and the desk would not even engage the police. One of the worst places I have ever stayed.
Nice Bathroom Beds were more comfortable than I expected mini-fridge was helpful Keyless Entry was helpful when arms were loaded with stuff The check-in guy was pleasant I didn't see any live roaches Wafflehouse, Starbucks, and McD's within walking distance Dead roach on the Air Conditioner We were given 2 towels for a family of 4. AC quit working on the second night. Had to climb 2 flights of stairs outside, carrying enough stuff for 4 people for a long weekend, to reach our room with 2 tired, hot, cranky kids. When we called and asked for more towels, we were told to come down to the lobby to pick them up. They didn't have anyone to deliver them. I'm fairly certain there was a hooker in the room 2 door down from us. Kind of a sketchy neighborhood. Took about 25 minutes driving to reach the beach. Toilet flushed so hard, I was sure it was going to suck me into another dimension.
The location from the beach and it had lots of options for food and shopping close by. It was filthy it smelled awful. You could spell the cigarettes from the room downstairs. We felt it necessary to check for bed bugs twice over. The box spring were horribly stained. You could tell things had been patched up to save money as opposed to being fixed professionally. hald the outlets didn't work. They never gave us enough towels and wash clothes. When we decided we would call to get more the phone didn't work. The lock on our door didn't work. We propped up a chair under the handle and I slept with my gun in hand. The air barely worked. The water pressure in the shower gave only a trickle making it hard to rinse off. Some of the people at this hotel were completely sketchy and made us feel uncomfortable. Lots of stares and watching our every move. I'm pretty sure there were drugs being sold out of one of the rooms. The continental breakfast was a joke. And their laundry facilities weren't working either. As I went down to scope out the breakfast situation I saw another guest talking with a front desk employee/manager about a complaint and he was painfully rude to her. She wasn't being belligerent or anything. Watching that happen let me know I shouldn't even bother with my list of complaints so we just did the best we could to enjoy our trip. Thankfully we spent most of our time out at the beach and only slept and showered there so that helped. I never expected anything spectacular but this place is unacceptable. I would've forked out more money to stay somewhere else had I know. It was a learning experience that's for sure.
It is a close proximity to various establishments. The mall is just across the street and Chuck E Cheese is right next door! There are roaches! Our microwave is old with no buttons and one broken knob. The fridge didn't have shelves.
The most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in. They did not give us new toilet paper, so I had to walk over to the 7-11 and buy some.
