The location is perfect and the rooms are very nice. Housekeeping did a great job. However, there are definite problems at the front desk. The most serious of those are the way room requests are handled. Basically, requests (a certain floor, a certain side of the building) you make when you book are going to be completely ignored, which is... More

Our stay at the Blue Sea Beach Hotel was amazing. The location is what makes the hotel, I do have to say the staff was extremely friendly and they would go out of their way with any questions we may have had to find an answer. Hotel was pricey over labor day weekend but then again they filled the rooms.

We had a great visit to the Blue Sea Beach Hotel over Labor Day weekend. Most of my beach visits have been to Florida where you can rent a really nice, beachfront 2 bedroom condo for about $2k to $2.4k per week. Anyway, the BSBH is right on the oceanfront walk way where Mission Beach meets Pacific Beach; the location... More

I returned to the Blue Sea for my 30th consecutive year in July, and what a difference a year can make. There were two major changes, one good, the other not so much. The one constant, though, is that the entire staff – from GM through front desk to housekeeping and security – is friendly, helpful and courteous. It’s great... More

The Blue Sea is life at the beach. It is being front and center to the surf, sand, people and is the total imersion into a beach experience. It is the sounds and sights we have never known staying further inland. It is the kind of place you walk by on the strand and wish you would have known to... More

I have spent many of days at the Blue Sea Lodge for various work events. My last visit was surely the best as they just completed a beautiful renovation and the rooms and the space were great! I highly recommend this property as it is comfortable, clean and equipped with the best people around! Thanks Blue Sea!

Spending ten gorgeous day's at the Blue Sea Beach Hotel was my dream come true. An immaculate room, with a pristine ocean view. Kindness abounds, ice cold cucumber water, fresh baked cookies and apples generously supplied in the lobby. General Manager Rubin Garza, CHA welcomes his guests and assures a great stay for all that visit.

We booked this hotel online and were skeptical. However, when we got to our room we were so pleasantly surprised. It was clean, adorably decorated and the bed was absolutely awesome. The front desk staff was very accommodating. We were worried about there being noise as the area is populated by a young crowd. However, we heard nothing! The rooms... More

My wife and I stayed at the Blue Sea Hotel for a week and had a nice time. The rooms and office have been recently remodeled so its nice to stay in a place that looks new. You will hear a lot about parking on these reveiws but its worth the $18 a night to be able to come back... More
