This is our 3rd visit to this hotel and the newly renovated rooms was a plus. Its beautiful here and so easy for food, things to do, beaches. I am completely happy with the service we had, the front desk was so kind each and every time we entered your lovely lobby. We were made to feel so comfortable. Thank... More

The newly renovated room was beautiful and had almost everything, including a lovely view of the ocean and pool. Just two problems: the patio furniture was too large for the tiny balcony, so we could hardly manage to fit and the elevator was not working. It appears that much of the hotel is currently under renovation, although it was not... More

We visit San Diego frequently and always stay at the Blue Sea Lodge. The manager Ruben Garza along with his staff always treat us first class. The rooms have been remodeled to make them even more appealing. We enjoy the overall vibe and location of this great property which is located right on the Pacific Ocean just a few steps... More

Third trip to Blue Sea with college group of 60 well behaved athletes. Hotel location can't be beat. It's right on beach and lots of places to venture out and explore right from the hotel... food, entertainment and workouts. Renovations to rooms are great -- as are the oceanside/poolside rooms. Jen Cruz was excellent to work with... (again)... she not... More

Jennifer Cruz and her team at Blue Sea Lodge were extremely accommodating with our group of 30. We booked the rooms about 10 months in advance, in anticipation of a competition we were prepping for. Jennifer was a pleasure to work with along the way leading up to our stay and her staff was very pleasant while we were there.... More

Beautiful, clean, recently updated hotel in a fantastic location- and inexpensive! I'm still amazed we got to stay in this fantastic beachfront hotel on our budget. The hotel is right next to the board walk and there is plenty of food and shopping within walking distance. The hotel staff was friendly and accommodated our early check in request and held... More

Newly renovated rooms are very nice! We got an oceanfront room and it was definitely worth the extra money. We didn't get the rooms that we requested but were given a comparable room. Service is great. Can't beat being steps away from the boardwalk. If you don't want to hang on the beach, the pool has a great view! Have... More

What can you say about a hotel that is 10 steps from the beach and 5 steps away from a beautiful pool and hot tub. You don't get any better than that. We got a room with a partial view of the ocean and it was well worth the price. The room was old and small for 4 adults but... More

Excellent room, very comfortable beds. Terrific location on the beach and you can sit in their hot tub and watch the sun go down. Front desk staff a bit young and need service experience, but they were friendly. Would definitely stay again.

Nothing better than getting out of your hotel and getting on the beach. I got a room with a partial view of the ocean. So worth it. Got great pictures of the sunset from my room. Microwave and mini fridge in the room. Mission Bay was 2 blocks away behind the hotel. Great pier to walk to. Can walk to... More

I agree that there is “nothing better than getting out of your hotel and getting on the beach”! Our beach-front location is unmatched! I am happy to hear that you were able to enjoy our complimentary diffused water and fresh apples in our lobby area. Thank you so much for staying with us! Sincerely, Ruben Garza General Manager More
