We really enjoyed this hotel. The room was very comfortably furnished with upscale touches. The bed was very comfortable. The free breakfast, delivered to the room, much nicer than usual including a hot main dish (French toast was our favorite), two sides such as yogurt or fruit, and a drink plus coffee or tea from the coffee maker in the room. There is also a nice ocean view patio out front for all the guests to share. Would stay here again.

Great weekend getaway, close to fun things to do. Room was very nice, though a little short on places to put our stuff. The breakfast was delicious - a lot of food! Definitely would recommend.

Wonderful Place

This is our second stay at the Blue Dolphin. It is conveniently located right across the beach which is fabulous. We took many walks along the boardwalk before we started our day and at the end of our activities. Very relaxing. The staff is friendly and helpful and the hotel is very clean.
