There were unidentifiable stains on the walls and floor. The room smelled disgusting. The AC had mold in it. Saw a few roaches... The bed also had bed bugs!!! Thankfully I had an air mattress. If you ABSOLUTELY must stay here, bring sandals to wear around because the carpet and shower is filthy. There's a sleazy strip club next door...

They had a security guard overseeing the parking. Dodgy characters wandering around. Room was bearable. Pool not well maintained. The highlight was The Anderson Pub right around the corner. It was trendy place with fun people that were eager to converse. Highly recommended - the Anderson that is.

Its a good place and value for money but can do with some refurbishment and more cleaning. If the swimming pool was clean i would have swam but was full of dirt. Also need more deckchairs and make the place more fun!

I had to find a room last minute. I searched through several and was looking for some place for just me to crash at for the night. Motel blu was perfect. It's not a luxury hotel and it's quite out of date. But it was clean and cheap and provided me with a perfect service. The room even had a...

The rooms were not too bad, at least other than the couple of cockroaches we encountered. There seems to be quite a bit of prostitution in the motel, and in fact, one was trying to solicit my boyfriend right in front of me. The worst part? The staff. With the exception of the young lady who checked us in, the...

Stayed here for 1 week - It was near where i needed to be but the area is full of prostitution at night and it is questionable as to whether the main stay of guests are involved in the trade! There were a few roaches and cleanliness was bordering acceptable. One day a homeless man took a bath fully clothed...

i have stayed in many "cheap" motels/hotels - usually it doesnt mean anything bad except here. we found this motel online and it was one of the view close to downtown that was not sold out yet over the easter/spring brake weekend or was asking 150/night . when we arrived it was already dark and we didnt pay much attention...
