Spent 5 nights in a very large Premium Suite, it was very well laid out with a separate living area from the bedroom, the fireplace was a nice warm feature to use early Mornings. The bathroom was a large size with a good deep bath, nice stand alone shower and toilet in its own room. Coffee machine in room was drip with good coffee, downstairs in reception was an all singing machine that was very good. We liked Hotel Blue as we had a lot of space and it was very quiet, it is best described as a European Pensione, Good room with only a few frills. Its location is perfect for downtown Lewes, Beach and Cape Henlopen. Looking forward to a return stay in 2022
We stayed at the Blue Hotel October/2021 and were VERY glad we discovered this hotel on line. The front desk was staffed by a delightful friendly girl that helped with local restaurants and activities. We had a basic room which was large and included a fireplace and balcony overlooking the harbor and a very large bathroom. We loved having coffee on the balcony each morning. The lobby coffee maker was a real treat and made a variety of hot drinks. We were able to walk to the shops in town and there are two restaurants on the same street as the Blue Hotel. This sure beats the chain hotels!!!!
Studio Suite is on the serene, wetlands side of the building PROBLEM WAS, NO WETLANDS, WELL THERE ARE, BUT, THERE ARE BUT THE WETLANDS ARE BEHIND HUGE EVERGREENS, THAT IS RIGHT, YOU WILL SEE EVERGREENS, NOT, NOT WETLANDS! I was NOT too happy. Sitting on the Balcony, EVERGREENS, NOT WETLANDS....Keep this in mind if you plan on staying there. Other than this issue that is advertised on there site, it is a OK place to stay.
The paperwork said we could cancel up to 3 days before our visit. The remnants of a hurricane are coming and The Hotel Blue refused to give my elderly mother and myself our money back even though we gave them 3 days notice. They said it had to be 7 days. The hotel Blue does not care about the safety of there guests or stick by there agreements.
We chose this hotel for its advertising; specifically "no kids, no pets, and no smoking". Hotel Blue l is unique; definitely a distinct smell upon entering the lobby; most likely from their cleaning agents used during COVID. Lobby vibe is hip and on point. Desk staff informed us of a room change upon our 4th day....a first for us-- after years of traveling. Our suite, 201, was clean. The bathroom was clean with towels and guest soaps and a very small (most likely) soaking tub for one with a huge shower with curtain. Toilet seat was loose. The interior suite furnishings and exterior setting of our suite did not match the description we read on their webpage. Carpeting was stained, air conditioner exhaust was panting to keep up with the outside summer heat and high temperature. Our corner room balcony view was two chairs and a center round table with view of the corner dumpster and pine trees. Windows offered street views and parking lot and an abandoned building; albeit shortly to the left of our room was a nearby place to eat. The interior of our room was not "luxurious" as noted in the Hotel Blue preview and the finishes and furnishings were far less than " luxurious" and better described as well worn and tired. We did not stay at this hotel as our overall expectation did not match the actual suite or venue. Our refund was granted in full within 20 minutes of our arrival. Some may enjoy the "boutique" experience of this hotel and some many not. What you decide is fair payment and experience is truly a personal one and without question or hesitation. The staff clerk shared with us that our "change of rooms" was an"Expedia' issue" and not one they control and that there are only 16 rooms available. Perhaps, the staff was aware of our change of room as they informed us---at our check-in---and we were unaware of this change. Suggest the staff may consider informing quests in advance of changes to their room prior to check-in to ensure both guest and hotel staff are on the same page of expectation. Again, our full and entire bill was successfully credited upon our departure. Self-parking is free albeit very tight spaces. Prepare to show your drivers license with car make and model and license plate number to ensure a parking space. This very tight parking venue is shared with neighboring business occupants. The desk clerk informed us vehicles parked in the designated Hotel Blue spaces would be towed and-- have been. The coffee bar inside the lobby was unremarkable. I would encourage future guests to "call" the hotel and book directly as this is what we were told to do after we checked in (and not to use Expedia) in order to avoid the experience we had. Your money. Your choice.…
