Despite all of the reviews on here saying stuff about lice and bugs, my room had no problems. The only issue with the room was our shower rod with out of the wall, but the owner was up within 20 minutes to fix it. It was very clean and newly refurbished. We stayed in a different hotel then night before...

Where to begin? Price was right. Location great. Parking fine. Walking distance to a lot of restaurants. Heat worked well. Refrigerator and microwave. Owner can't speak English very well. Difficult to communicate. Juice in the office. Cups available. When I asked a female employee who worked the desk if i could have some, she kind of looked over her shoulder,...

We stayed at the Blue Marlin for the NHSCA tournament. The cost was very reasonable considering we didn't spend much time in the room. The bathroom and sheets were clean. The rest of the room could use a good cleaning. The room had a fridge and a microwave which was convenient. We would stay here again for a tournament but...

The place was built in the 60's, it is older. We just wanted somewhere to sleep and shower, it fit the bill. Don't expect a 5 star. People at the office area were nice and helpful. Our towels and beds were clean. Any time we asked for fresh we got it.

This place is dirty. And the people in charge are arrogant. It smelled musty and the rooms aren't carpeted. They charged my credit card without me signing for a parking pass. Not a good place to stay.

Very dissapointing, not what i expected, one of the bed was missing the boxspring !!!!, Bathroom and the towels dirty. Pool small . The only thing good about this motel is it's very close to the beach.
