Great location-right on the beach and walking distance to many restaurants. Large room with a great view! This is not a fancy hotel, but is clean, conveniently located, and reasonable priced. It is perfect for kicking back at the beach and making life easy . . .

My husband and I booked this room for a weekend getaway (just happened that it was also Valentine's Day weekend, so the prices were a bit higher). Our room was very clean and fresh; decor was light and modern. Bed was comfortable. On short trips like this one, I try to pack light, so I was also happy that they... More

If you want a room, right on the sidewalk across from the beach, with a balcony (albeit small), two chairs and a small table, where you can hear the waves, this place is great. When we arrived the room smelled a bit musty, we opened up the door to the balcony to let some air flow through then called the... More

Had an amazing room, with an incredible view of the ocean. Great location for walk to food, and anything else you would need. Easy travel to Sea World. One of my favorite hotels me and my family have ever stayed in. Want to go back someday!

This will be my second time with Blue Sea Beach Hotel and i am just as impressed as I was the first time i stayed.

No complaints about the accommodations here. This place is right on the beach, which is fantastic, and it's also really close to lots of bars and restaurants (though not so close that it's obnoxious). You're also straddling Pacific and Mission Beaches, so you can experience either one easily on foot. The room was very comfortably sized (especially just for me!),... More
