I was given a birthday gift of the room and dinner at this place. The Decour is right out of the 60s, very retro. Aesthetically the place looks good but most of the equipment is in a state of disrepair. The refrigerator did not work at all, and the air-conditioning was so noisy that it was hard to sleep without...

Check in was fast and friendly. The hotel is cute, very different from the mainstream hotels. Our room was on the 3rd floor -fantastic view of the water. We sat on the porch and watched a few ships go by. The room was very clean and wonderfully decorated. We will stay again!!

First the hotel is smaller than the it looks in the pictures. The rooms were big and clean, they need a little updating. The window is large and you can see the river. One draw back to the window is, the sitting area for the next room is in front of your window !! So if you have the curtain...

Like other reveiwers, I was expecting something a bit classier because of the wonderful River Crab restaurant. Keep in mind restaurant is not attached nor is there a protective cover to walk to it. Rooms looks great online. However, the up-grading was not impressive. I personally don't feel that pea-soup green and dark brown molding are good colors to impress....

Large windows to view freighter/boat activity on the River is the draw here. Night or day, it is just plain fun to watch. Large clean guest rooms, with mini fridge and sink. Nice pool however, it was "out of order" on the Memorial Day weekend which was disappointing. Another odd set up is that the guest room entry door is...

My wife and I stayed here for night and also ate at the River Crab. Looks to have been recently updated and the furnishings are colorful and cheery. Very roomy and not your typical hotel. Quiet despite being adjacent to the restaurant and the M-29. All in all a nice place for an overnight stay and worth the price.

For two years in a row my family in the US and Canada have gathered here to celebrate Christmas. Huge rooms with table and chairs and wet bar allow for easy pre-dining gathering. Very comfortable beds. Spectacular setting on the water. The friendly front desk staff were always helpful with any questions and requests. The River Crab restaurant has great...

This is my second stay at the Blue Water Inn. We love the updated look to this vintage hotel. Stay here at an affordable rate and you can walk down the drive to the famed River Crab Restaurant. Even better, you can order from your room and get take-out to eat in the comfort of your room. Our room (302)...

The rooms have a nice view of the water which has many freighter and boat traffic. Very relaxing, you can sit outside your room and have a smoke if you like and watch the freighters go by. There is a restaurant right there that sometimes has good door. BUT spotty. It could be a nice way to spend a romantic...

We recently staying in one of the renovated King rooms and it was just great. It was quiet but there was some road noise where we were located. The rooms have a refrigerator but no microwave. The pool is small and not heated. The continental breakfast is adequate and available every day as well as there is coffee service in...
