The room needed to be a little more updated than it was. The blinds in the bathroom were too short for the windows so you could see into it from outside. The overall cleanliness was just not as good as it should have been. The hot water in the bathroom took a long time to get warm.

The staff was very nice. My main complaint was the parking. It just didn't make sense and not enough space. Very tiny. The room was comfy and clean but our 2nd night there I was trying to find staff for me bath towels and couldn't find anyone. Overall, nice place and great location.

I’ve been coming to Blue Water Inn for a few years in a row with my son, and we’ve always had a very good experience. We’ve never needed the fancy amenities that other places offer. Just a bed, a shower, and being close to the beach. This inn has always had that, and the staff was always friendly…until this year. I personally think the front desk staff are the ones who give the initial impression of your stay, and this is the first year where I felt unwelcome and uncomfortable. From the moment we walked in to check in, I was given attitude. I was laughed at and told “no way” when asked if I could see a transaction that was made in the previous year, like I’m expected to know their policies on bookkeeping. Asking even one question is looked as an inconvenience. Walking by the front desk was even uncomfortable, because you barely got a smile, and not once were you asked how your day is or if you need anything. I’m not sure what has happened with management since our stay last year, but it is poor service and poor attitude. I’m happy to say I will not return. Do yourself a favor and research, because you can find more affordable places that are better quality and have better service.

Accommodations poor. Pictures on website do not show bathroom accommodations. Building code suspicious. Do not recommend this facility and will never consider again
