Blue Sea Beach Hotel
Ranked #21 of 278 Hotels in San Diego
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 November 2013

We went to San Diego for a Charger football game. Booked the hotel based on reviews and were not disappointed. We had booked an ocean view room and requested a 3rd floor room. The staff accommodated our request and being a Best Western Reward member upgraded us to a suite. The location was great right on the ocean. Bike rentals were easy as the hotel has them available. The staff were very friendly and directed us to some great restaurants.in the area. Would recommend Fat Fish and World Famous. As stated in most reviews it is great sleeping listening to the ocean. Would definitely recommend anyone to stay at the Best Western Blue Sea Lodge.

If you want Mission or Pacific Beach, this is the only reasonably priced hotel on the strip. They are currently renovating but that fact did not affect our 10-day stay here. One of the remarkable aspect of the Blue Sea (we've stayed here probably 10 other times), besides the sunsets, food, ocean, dolphins, surfers, and dogs, is the extremely helpful and kind staff. Always friendly (even the overnight staff!), always willing to help and this includes not only the manager (Reuben) and assistant manager (Will) who greeted us but also the front office and cleaning staff. I've never been to a hotel where there appears to be such genuine love for their jobs.

Room Tip: We kept the fan on overnight to block the boardwalk noise. The free cookies are out around 4pm daily...

Hotel location was prime. It was right on the ocean in the middle of all the activity. The hotel was mediocre but the location and pool were amazing. Most of our time was spent by the pool so the room did not matter much. Highly recommend upgrading to an ocean view if you could afford it. We had partial view-- was ok. Will definitely stay again but this time pick a different room.

This is not a high end hotel but for the price we paid we got an amazing value My review is for the ocean front room ( Perhaps we got lucky since we got an upgrade) but the room was clean, everything worked just fine the bed was comfortable and we loved the porch with the amazing ocean view. The hotel has an easy access to the beach and the overall location is perfect.

We were looking for a simple hotel on the beach and we found it in Pacific Beach. The Best Western Blue Sea Lodge checked off all our boxes. Steps from the beach, ABSOLUTLY BEAUTIFUL....you could not be closer to sand and water. Casual, clean, comfortable and affordable and a very easy place to stay. No hassles. We felt safe. The staff went well above and beyond to make sure that not only did the room meet our expectations but were extremely knowledgeable of the local area and had many fine recommendations. I'll be back again and again to relax in the Jacuzzi while I watch the sunset and listen to the waves crash. Heaven.

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms offer a picture perfect view of the beach. Windows seemed pretty soundproof.

Nice room with an ocean and pool view for a reasonable price. The pool was heated to a divine and very inviting temp. Walk to just about everything. Good security and competent staff. Be aware that there is no free breakfast here, also parking is a whooping $18 per day. Check in at 4:00 is a problem when you have been on the road and just want to freshen up and hit the beach.

The staff at this hotel was excellent! Room was clean and patio provided hours of watching the ocean. Just steps from the beach and many shops and restaurants. Will definitely stay at this hotel again. Looking forward to the remodel in early 2014.
