We had our son & granddaughter book this adorable abode and they were thrilled not only with the area but with the beauty of this charming hacienda type motel. The rooms are in warm colors and were so cheerful. Beautiful pool and blooming flowers all around. It is the prettiest of all hotel/motels in the area with all of the conveniences you need. They look forward to their next visit there with owners, Chrisie & Mark as outstanding hosts. And, the beach is just across the street.
This is a great place for everyone to stay at.

My family and I recently stayed here for a few nights while vacationing. This is a very unique and pleasant place in a great location. It is within walking distance of many good restaurants, etc and is very quiet. I would have rated it a 5 had it not been for the extremely squeaky mattress in our unit. We dealt with it for 2 nights, but if we were staying longer this would have been a real issue. I highly recommend Blue Seas.

We thank you for your review and responding to us when we asked for your feedback on your visit with us. The suite you stayed in did have a boxspring bed base in the bedroom. All of our other apartments have foam-based platform bases without springs that we have custom-made for us. We thought we would sample a spring-base box but, thanks to your feedback, we will replace them with our traditional spring-free bed bases. Sincerely, Cristie

The sign boasts of "charming accommodations" and they are just that. The Mexican decor is amazing and much nicer than a typical motel room that would cost the same or more per night. Lots of TLC on display in the design and upkeep by the owners. Our efficiency unit was quiet, clean and very spacious for the two of us. The king-size bed was quite comfy, and the kitchen and dinette area had everything you need to cook and take your meals. The bathroom had a shower only -- not a deal-breaker, but something that should be noted on the website. All in all, it's a lovely laid-back setting for a relaxing Florida vacation; El Mar Drive has very little traffic, the beach is just across the street, and you can walk to the shops and restaurants of the LBTS commercial district that's only a few blocks away.

Room Tip: If you don't like smelling cigarette smoke outside your room, a 2nd floor unit might be a better...

I used to live in Lauderdale by the Sea and walked by Blue Seas daily. I went back to visit with friends and thought I'd give this little motel a try. I was pleasantly surprised. The room was so quaint with special touches all over. The kitchen was fully equipped, the sheets and pillows were crisp and clean - the room was spotless. Just a cute little place. . . Highly recommended. Thanks Christie! It was nice to meet you!

I have to start off by thanking Marc and Christie for an amazing Fourth of July birthday stay!!!! Everything was just perfect from beginning to end... We arrived on Wednesday July 3, upon arriving I was over taken on how well kept and clean everything is, loved the Mexican decor thru out the property.... I am a very very picky person and believe me when I say this place from top to bottom is spotless...... It only has 12 guest cottages and that's exactly what I loved about it, it felt like we were the only ones there the whole time.... They have rules as they reside there onsite as well as keeping the noise level down as to respect other guest and that's exactly what every hotel should have... Location was perfect... Beach was just across the street and you could walk to restaurants and shops..... I would not stay anywhere else in lauderdale by the sea!!!!! We departed on Saturday and honestly I did not want to leave..... I felt the whole time I was there like if I was staying with family!!!! Thanks again Christie and keep up the great job you do!!!!!!! Love love the place. Looking forward to returning!!!!!

Room Tip: Stay in units 10, 11 or 12 which are the only units on second floor. We stayed in unit 10...

My husband & I stayed @ Blue Seas Courtyard in April 2013. The owners and staff are extremely friendly. It was one of the best motels we've ever stayed at, it blows away the large chains. It was a great escape from all the hustle & bustle of our high-tech world. The decor was amazing & very clean (ie: room & pool area). It's a quaint, charming atmosphere that made me feel relaxed & trustworthy. Everything is within walking distance, beach, restaurants, night life. My husband & I have told all of our friends & family and we definitely plan on returning. Blue Seas Courtyard is a gem and we plan on making it an annual vacation. We highly recommend this motel. All of our memories are sweet and they'll last forever! Thanks Christie & Mark!

Room Tip: They're always updating/improving the rooms so ask for one that's been recently renovated...
