It has been our 34th year coming and we wouldn't miss not coming. We had a week of beautiful weather and lots of fun. Ruben, Jenn and all the staff try so very hard to accomodate all our needs. The rooms were great and clean. This hotel is literally on the beach and when you are tired of the ocean... More

Every time we go to San Diego we stay at the Blue Sea Beach Hotel. It is always a great experience. The staff is great and you can't beat the location! The kids love having the hotel right on the beach so that they can go back and forth from the beach to the pool.

The Blue Sea Beach Hotel has an awesome location. Located right in the middle of the action in Pacific Beach and right on the ocean. Our room was overlooking the beach, very clean and nice. Ok, the bed was extremely soft and ready to be replaced. The carpet in the bedroom was wet from the AC condensation, but they brought... More

This is our second stay at the Blue Sea Beach Hotel. The first was quite a bit more pleasant than our recent adventure. Everything and I mean everything was perfect except being placed in a room with "paper walls". We were able to clearly hear each and every word that those spoke in the surrounding rooms. Each footstep, each word,... More

we enjoyed our ocean front balcony very much. It made up for the very small size of the king room. The room had been kind of renovated though sported some oversized, non custom furniture that took up a lot of space. the bathroom was basic motel with decent water pressure. good internet (free) with plenty of hook ups for mobile...

I am a fan of several of the Pacifica hotels in California and this is their newest addition: and it's very nice. We had a partial ocean view room, free wi-fi, and everything was newly renovated. The outside of the hotel looks like the best western it used to be but it is DIRECTLY on the boardwalk and there are... More

We had another amazing family reunion here. This is our 34th year and we won't stay anywhere else! Can't wait to come back again next year. Thanks Ruben and Jen for all your help along with all the rest of the friendly, helpful staff. Clean, attractive rooms. Perfect beach location. Lots of places to eat, all in walking distance.

The hotel was lovely perfectly located on the beach near to restaurants and shops. It had recently been remodeled and was very sunny and bright. The cost of $350 a night was inordinate. but it was Comic Con week. When it was a Best Western they served a breakfast but not with this owner. Also for this price they should... More
