My son just celebrated his 23rd birthday and of all the gifts he got, the one he said was the most stellar was a two-nite stay at the Blue Sea Beach Hotel.

Step out your door onto the beach, or enjoy the sunset over the Pacific from your partial-ocean view room.... This is a great beach hotel. Clean, nicely decorated, and perfectly located. Great seafood, killer breakfasts and awesome margaritas just a few steps down the boardwalk. A 15 minute drive up to La Jolla, and a 30 minute walk down to... More

Loved this hotel. Nicely renovated inside, great bathroom products, complimentary pool towels and friendly staff. Beds were super comfortable also. Steps away from the beach and lots of store, restaurants and bars! What more can you ask for?
