Hotel Blue Informative - Stay away from Myrtle Beach's Hotel Blue
We live a couple hours inland and enjoy going to Myrtle Beach, SC for shopping, great seafood and good entertainment. My wife and I made a last minute decision to come down to see a show at the Alabama Theatre. Our usual hotels were booked and I made a reservation at Hotel Blue at 708 S. Ocean Blvd. Big mistake. I don't remember ever staying in such a dump. The room is very spartan with no carpet (Probably a blessing considering how filthy the hallway carpets are), worn out furniture and a mattress that should have been replaced years ago.
The ice machine is of the bin type with bulk ice in it. There is an ice scoop laying in the ice so the germs from dirty hands transfer to the ice, a definite health department no-no. The ice bucket has no plastic bag or insert so ice must be put into the ice bucket. (Who knows what was in it last?) I guess this is not really a complaint but I want my friends at My3Cents.com to be aware of this place if they ever come to Myrtle Beach.
