Each winter my husband and I try to escape the cold New England winter. We choose to come to San Diego as our daughter and three grand daughters live there. We stay at the Blue Sea Hotel January through March each year. The hotel is right on the beach. It is very modern and clean. The service is five star... More

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. The hotel went through renovations this past year and is comfortable and has a modern feel to the interior. The rooms are wonderfully decorated and beds extra comfortable. The hotel is also right off the... More

We had been traveling for a week down the coast of CA and were looking forward to finally having a home base for the next week to relax. We had stayed at this hotel last year and were very happy with the location so we decided to book it again. So it is unfortunate I have to write such a... More

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

Stayed March 16-18, 2015. Had room 361, king size bed. This was a perfect spot to have the most relaxing time. You are steps from the ocean by the way! The room has its own patio. (The patio has a wooden barrier with slits so you have to adjust your seats to be able to see the most amazing views... More

The hotel was ok. Rooms were average. The bathroom while large the sink was small. We also had issues with our toilet the entire time. We had partial ocean view which meant view of parking lot and a little ocean seen from balcony. If you want to stay on the beach and be close to bars restaurants and awesome view... More
