5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed 3 nights, clean rooms, comfy beds, nice bathrooms. Weather was cool so we did not get to enjoy pool or beach. Busy but convenient location and easy to get to San Diego or La Jolla from there. We stayed in partial ocean view and could see ocean well. Restaurants within walking distance

What a great place. Great location, right on the beach ans close to everything else you could want or need. The staff is super friendly and very helpful. I think the beds are the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever slept in ( better than most 5 star hotels). We loved our stay and can't wait to return.

This hotel is great at what it is. It offers no freebies except wifi (works well) and beach towels (nice and appreciated). The housekeeping staff was friendly and nice and did a good job. The front desk was nice and good and their jobs. There is lots of restaurants within walking distance and the beach is just so amazing. I... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Blue Sea Beach Hotel. The location is fantastic! Just steps from Pacific Beach & in the middle of everything! You walk out of the hotel & you are on the strand & steps away from the beach & restaurants. The staff was friendly & helpful. Our rooms were exactly as pictured on the... More

Decent hotel in San Diego. The hotel is right across from Pacific beach , which is a very beautiful and expansive beach.The thing to note is that there is a boardwalk separating the beach wall and the hotel wall. we stayed for 3 nights May 13 - 16. So first floor room - 160 which we were handed the first... More

The hotel staff were all very accommodating the entire time. Some people have claimed the rooms are 'tight,' and I suppose for some they are, but they were still great rooms. We had a partial ocean view, and our room opened out into the pool area with a view of the ocean. There was a huge mirror in the room... More

Did an overnight trip to San Deigo and stayed here. The room was clean, smelled good and big. Great location on the beach and within walking distance to places to eat. The elevator was noisy and shake.

We stayed here for three nights and had two rooms. Unfortunately we were put on the first floor the view from our room was of the pool and hot tub, with limited beach views. Our adult kids had a good view, but would have been nice to be on 2nd or 3rd floor. No freebies at this place other than... More

I deliberated between staying on the beach or in downtown. I'm glad I chose the beach as the beach views are stunning and we wanted a casual vacation and dining experience. The lobby offers flavored water everyday in the lobby so I would go fill up my water bottle for the day. While in the lobby, I noticed a lot... More
