Great Location, Cute Resort on Nantucket Sound

Pros: Location, landscaping, friendly staff, cute bungalows, right on Nantucket Sound, free breakfast buffet.
Cons: Fix painted shut windows, loud fan in bathroom, smell in hallway, toilet flush issue, add queen bed and mirrors.
Location: Take the side roads (not 6) and see all of the cute towns along the way to Provincetown. Eat at Marshside.
Location was great; right on the beach with a friendly staff, free breakfast buffet, very nice landscaping, and cute bungalows. We were "upgraded" upon arrival from a standard room that we booked in one of the main buildings to an older 2nd floor bungalow efficiency with two bedrooms two twin beds and one double bed. There was no ocean view and not what you usually reserve for a milestone anniversary trip where you expect to sleep in the same bed! They said it was due to a bus tour arrival and we went along with the change thinking we were getting a better deal. It was nice to have extra room with a stocked kitchen. Some suggestions for making this room much better would be: find and remove the source of the musty smell in the stair landing; add a mirror to each bedroom; fix some of the windows that were painted shut (safety hazard?); fix the toilet flushing issue; fix the loud fan in the bathroom; I might try to stay here again but would not let them "upgrade" me next time! We didn't spend very much time in the room anyway as we were seeing the many historical sights on Cape Cod. Blue Water needs to make some needed improvements to 523 as this suite is falling short.

Great location, by the beach, close to the main towns. Staff is greatly nice and very helpful. The location has its own beach and several facilities that are great if you are with a group of friends or family. Will definitely go back!

It was right on the beach so that was great!

The hotel room is dingy and old and nothing impressive. The sink was outside the bathroom, toiletries were subpar and the sheets smelled. The staff was wonderful though and provides suggestions for dining and activities. There were beach lounge chairs on the deck overlooking the water. The beach was clean and the sand was soft. I would stay again but perhaps in a nicer room.

Great location, fair condition

Pros: Location, front desk staff
Cons: Bathroom needed ventilation and repair, pool area and entire bottom floor needed ventilation; hall stairs and hot tub needed to be cleaned
Location: Right on the beach; walking distance to one or two restaurants; driving distance to many days' worth of activities
This hotel is in a convenient, pretty area and right on the beach. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Our first room had an overpowering mildew smell, so we asked to be moved to another room. The room itself was clean but the hall stair carpets were never adequately vacuumed. Our shower enclosure needed repair. The exercise room and downstairs bar had a strong mildew smell. The indoor pool was a nice amenity but smelled of chemicals and needed ventilation. The hot tub water wasn't clean.

1st Time @ Blue Water Resort on the Ocean

Pros: Location, location, location.
I was very impressed with the room, accommodations, staff, etc... The room was ready early and very clean. The environment was very comfortable. Option of using an indoor, outdoor pool located right on the ocean. I could not have asked for a better location. We have stayed down the Cape numerous times each year for over 20 years and this hotel was like finding a hidden gem. The view was amazing. The staff was very accommodating. I would definitely stay here again, but very happy it was off season because the rates go up astronomically and the weather was pleasantly warm.

Beautiful view!

The hotel is in a great location -- right on the beach. Lots of chairs and tables, so we could dine al fresco. The staff were really friendly and helpful.

Excellent ocean front hotel

Really liked this hotel.  Ocean front room with balcony. Very comfortable and clean. Very nice beach.  All amenities, coffee pot, refrig, digital tv and restaurant.  Shared facilities with neighboring hotel; like laundry.  I just didn't stay here long enough.

Great location

The property was lovely & right on the water. Front desk staff unfriendly. No ramps to roll your bags to the room - up steps & then through the grass. Could not open our windows & a maintenance man came late at night to work on them. Overall would stay there again due to the wonderful location on the water.
