“Music could ruin this place”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

Swim up pool bar is awesome! Feels like you're in the islands! But the loud high pitched music ruins the rest. All music sounded alike, no variety. So loud you couldn't listen to ur own music with headphones. Or talk to people next to you.
Rooms are ok, could use better housekeeping. But over all good for the. $$
Unless the music is different not sure if the bar is worth the effort

Stayed August 2014, travelled as a couple

The rooms were not very nice with tile floors older furniture and ancient bedding, but this is a hotel for the younger crowd with bass pumping music from the pool deck and an 'in pool' bar it was a lot of fun and I actually would go back but certainly not bc of the rooms, for the same money u can get a hotel that is beautiful with comfortable rooms and a lot more pools and amenities than this hotel but it would not have provided the fun experience as this hotel did

Dirty pool matched the nasty rooms hallways and elevators. This hotel caters to drunken twenty somethings. Do not take kids there! Nothing on the grounds is kept up very well the place is more like a frat house. Pool bar was not as attractive as depicted on the website. Indoor lazy river nasty and not working.Only decent part of the place was the lobby

It was a terrible place to stay at. It was not cheap and I was expecting better than what we saw. First, the front desk staff were very rude and unprofessional. They made us feel unwelcome. The building was very dirty and smelly. When we got the room we didn't pay very close attention to the sheet or comforter, but in the morning we noticed we had bugs crawling all over the beds. I got panicked and tried to call the front desk, but the room phone wasn't working. I used different phone and let the front desk know about them. A lady said she would take care of it. After an hour of waiting, I had to go to the lobby and ask for help. This time there was a guy named Nate. He was very polite and helpful (unlike the ladies I spoke to before). They changed our room. I would never go back to that hotel and don't recommend anyone to go there.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool is nice and the weekend pool parties with the DJ are a lot of fun. The location is great!

With that said, the hotel itself is in desperate need of renovations. The rooms are outdated and there are stains on the carpet, the elevators are rickety and are very noisy, and the hallways are dingy and do not smell very nice. The guest rooms are cleaned with something that smells like industrial stregnth - extra chemical added - lemon pledge! I even sprayed Febreeze all over the room and kept the door to the balcony open, and it did not get rid of the smell.

There was also an awful smell around the indoor lazy river and hot tub. The pool restrooms are located past this area, so it was unavoidable.

Overall, for the price and location, this hotel is OK...but has the potential to be great if management springs for renovations and upgrades.

I will say that my room was clean and the workers were very courteous but that is all. The pool area was poorly supervised and was not an area for children. Security kicked a group out one afternoon but they were back the next day and just as bad. I have been to at least six different hotels in the area and this was by far the worst. We spent most of our time on the beach due to the clientele that inhabited the pool area. There was also loud music late into the night; the last night we stayed it went on till after 2:00 am. I did not bother to complain to anyone as I definitely will not return and will also tell everyone I know that goes to Myrtle to avoid Hotel Blue.

Room Tip: Best tip to get a good room is to choose a different hotel - anyone.
