Stayed here because we had a concert. Wasn't familiar with the name, so was a little apprehensive. It is a newly remodeled property. Very quiet and peaceful. Beds are full size, but nice and comfy...lots of pillows. Free Breakfast served. Average....try the sausage gravy! Very good!

Every single guest was well satisfied and said they provided a nice stay for them during the wedding festivities leading up to the wedding. Each staff member was very nice and accommodating. They made our stay an excellent...

Traveling with my daughter's sport's team, we were required to book with the tournament hotels and this was the last one remaining with sufficient # rooms. After our stay, I can see why. This is a converted Choice brand hotel that was unfinished and under-supplied. No guest Laundry room, only 1 ice machine that wasn't working, very rude staff, dirty...

The staff was super friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed the modern furniture, blue accents, modern "egg" chairs in the elevator lobbies, and the spacious room. The hotel was quiet, comfortable, and convenient.

The staff was professional and personable. We stayed here several years ago before it became Blu and the new owners completely redecorated and furnished the entire building--it's beautiful. The bed was the most comfortable we had on our 3 week drive about! Breakfast was excellent. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend the hotel. We definitely will stay at Blu...

Hotel staff and manager were awesome. Helpful too. Great place for meet and greet. I would go back their anytime. Big enough for all the amenities and small enough to feel special. Very nicely decorated with a blu theme. Pretty different. I liked it!

My first stay at The Blu will not be my last!! The hotel rooms are very large and well decorated. The hotel staff is phenomenal and brought so much warmth to our rainy/cold Ohio trip. Can't ask for more than wine and cheese after a long work week ⭐️
