An Indoor Lazy River Paradise at hotel BLUE
If Myrtle Beach has a lot of one thing, it’s hotels. It seems that everywhere you turn, there is an oceanfront sky rise towering over you. Despite this, all of the hotels in Myrtle Beach are far from the same. The choice of amenities at most is OK, but some go above and beyond to make guests feel comfortable.
hotel BLUE is a great example of a hotel that goes above and beyond when it comes to Myrtle Beach hotel amenities while still being an affordable option for families and friends. This south Myrtle Beach hotel features a contemporary pool deck including our popular swim up bar and a guest favorite—the indoor lazy river ride.
About the Indoor Lazy River
When the bright South Carolina sun is too hot to handle, you can head inside to hotel BLUE’s amazing indoor lazy river to relax for a while. Indoor lazy rivers are not a commodity in Myrtle Beach, so the fact that hotel BLUE has one, among numerous additional water amenities, is pretty awesome.
Located just steps from the outdoor pool deck, the three-foot deep indoor lazy river is perfect for a hot summer day or a mild fall evening. With heated water flowing all day long, guests can grab an inner tube and float their worries away on this lazy river.
Open from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m., it’s a great place to start your day before you head out to the beach. Or, you can hop in for a relaxing ride after you have had enough time in the sun.
Heated to about 81-degrees, the indoor lazy river is a comfortable place to relax. Once you are finished floating around the 165-foot long lazy river ride, you can relax in the adjacent indoor hot tub, heated to about 101-degrees, or relax at a nearby chair with accompanying tables. Restrooms are also conveniently located in the indoor water area.
When you are done enjoying the indoor lazy river you can choose to step just outside to the 8 South deck and have a cool drink or go towards the outdoor pooldeck where you can swim away the afternoon. While enjoying the indoor lazy river you will also be just steps away from Simply BLUE where you can purchase that sun screen you forgot to pack or get a delicious, fresh panini to curve your mid-day hunger.
Additional hotel BLUE Water Amenities
hotel BLUE will help you relax on your Myrtle Beach vacation beyond the indoor lazy river ride. The outdoor pooldeck is the place to be seen in Myrtle Beach. Here you can unwind on a sun shelf lounge chair right in the water or wade in the shallow pool while enjoying a cool cocktail. Adjacent to the large outdoor pool you will find a giant bubbly hot tub. The outdoor pool deck also offers guests access to the beach, which is just steps away.
Bonus Lazy Rivers + Even More Water Amenities!
Guests of hotel BLUE also have access to numerous additional water amenities at our other building, Captain’s Quarters, which is just a short walk away.
Here you will find two additional lazy rivers, one indoors and open year-round, and the other outdoors, open seasonally. The outdoor lazy river is located at the Ocean Inn Building of the hotel and peacefully winds around with the beach in the background. This pool area, since it is located away from the main Captain’s Quarters building, is often quiet, relaxing and not crowded. Their indoor lazy river is located with the rest of their indoor pool complex and is great for year-round fun.
Plus, Captain’s Quarters has additional hot tubs, a giant indoor pool and outdoor pools. There is no lack of water fun at these two awesome Myrtle Beach resorts!

The Original Myrtle Beach Swim-Up Bar
The first of its kind in the entire state of South Carolina, Myrtle Beach’s first swim-up pool bar is located right here at hotel BLUE at the outdoor pool. You don’t even have to get out of the water to order a drink during the warmer months. We’ve got cold beer, drinks on the rocks and frozen beverages such as margaritas and daiquiris. If you want to stay dry you can sit on our dry side as well or opt to perch on an in-water bar stool. We’ve got you covered either way!
On Sundays during the summer, hotel BLUE hosts a fun Myrtle Beach party at the outdoor pool area called Therapy complete with a poolside DJ spinning the tunes.

New this year, guests will be able to compete in a lip syncing contest and show everyone what they’ve got!
