    Hotel experience

    The shower drain was broken. The fridge didn’t close the closet seemed broken. When we checked in the lady in the front desk seemed bothered. The decoration to the hotel and cleanliness was ok but customer service needs improvement and they need to update the rooms.

    The ratings are inaccurate

    It smelled like urine in the bathroom and mildew in the room. It was dirty. We were charged $30 more for our room than what we committed to on hotels.com. It was uncomfortably deserted and there were young kids playing in the lobby and unattended at midnight. We didn’t even stay there after checking in because it was disappointing and felt unsafe.

    Overall good experience!

    Pretty good value hotel, clean, large room, comfortable bed, quiet area. The only complaint is it's a little dated, but overall is a good experience.

    Seriously Less than nice!

    This hotel was much less than the photos would imply. Best description is that it is putting lipstick on a pig and trying to call it pretty. It is clearly a remodeled hotel, but corners were cut everywhere. Moldings and woodwork poorly fitted. The shower had faux marble panels clearly just stuck on over the old tile walls. There was a musty smell to the room and there were tiny ants crawling all over the bathroom floor. We did a thorough bed bug inspection and came up visibly okay, but were still nervous about it. I'm no snob, but this place was the equivalent of someone doing a half-ass flip on a house. Shortcuts were clearly visible everywhere. The clothes closet cabinet was listing hard to port and just some many things left me wondering how another person could rate it "8.8 Fabulous" I've had better stays in a Motel 6 back in my college days. Just don't do it. There are much better places out there.

    Very nice weekend getaway.

    We were in town for a baseball tournament and really enjoyed our stay at the Blu Hotel. The hotel is beautifully decorated. The staff was very very friendly and helpful. Our room was very spacious and clean. I do have two complaints with the room but they really don't change my mind about our stay. The beds were small and there wasn't enough storage space other than that I was very pleased with our room. We stayed in a double suite. The hotel was conveniently located to lots of shopping, restaurants, entertainment and in our case baseball fields. If we are ever in this area again, I will definitely look to stay here again.

    Mini-family vacation

    The staff were very pleasant during our two night stay. We enjoyed the pool during the afternoons and the breakfast in the mornings. The bed was comfy and the room felt spacious. Everything was clean and in good condition.

    Nice but Plan to Search for Outlets

    This was a very trendy and beautiful hotel. It's located on the highway so traffic is pretty constant. The staff was very kind and helpful. The beds were comfy and the room was spacious. The neighborhood was safe and hotel was kept very clean. Two things I didn't care for was that there aren't many outlets and where they were located in the room was very awkward (one was located behind the couch). And the entrance to the parking lot was being repaved so construction was a pain and very loud. The pool was greatly enjoyed by the kids though. And there are a ton of restaraunts located near by.

    Great Value

    This hotel has pulled out all the stops in a positive way to renew an old property. It really is chic. As an older person, you can still dress me up, but underneath, I'm still old. Plumbing seems to be the Achilles heel of this property. It likely isn't true of every room, but our toilet flushed without purpose (vigor). Also, the shower didn't engage when pulled up so most of the water went down the drain. On a positive note, the room was sparkling clean and a huge value in terms of space for the price. The staff was extremely helpful as well. They printed out restaurant options for us. Lots of choices, but many are miles away.
