When I head across the pond to San Diego again, this is the place I will be staying at again. It's awesome. Ruben's staff are all fantastic, very friendly and extremely helpful - no task is ever beyond them. The location of the hotel is perfect for what I wanted but is very well positioned for surfers and beach lovers.... More

5 long time high school friend all met in san Diego for a mini reunion. We all stayed at Blue Seas and had the best time. Great location to good activity. Great Dining close by ( World famous ) and coffee at Woodies for morning walks on the boardwalk. I would choose Blue Seas again for sure.

Our family decided to take a last minute trip to SD for some down time and ran across this place on line. We stay in SD at least one week out of the year so I was somewhat familiar with the property; at least as to it's location- which is superb. However, when I saw it was recently acquired by... More

There are so many plus points about this hotel. In fact I can think of no minuses! Very helpful staff, gorgeous room which I think had just been newly decorated, we had a view of the pool and beach, molton brown free toiletries in the room, large TV, tea and coffee making facilities, a great pool with plenty of sun...

We spent an awesome spring break here with our 2 kids. The lobby is modern, clean and the wall of plates is gorgeous! When we checked in we were greeted by the manager who moved us to a room with a better view. Even let us look at both of them to make sure we were ok with it first.... More

Brought my daughter for spring break and had a great time. This hotel was exactly what we wanted. Great location on the beach, very clean, good amenities, comfortable beds and secure parking. We had an ocean front room on the 2nd of 3 floors. I'd request the top floor if possible as our neighbors above were heavy footed at times.... More

Had such a nice stay at the Blue Sea! Room was clean, always had fresh towels and bed was super comfy. The hotel has the perfect surfer vibe for being in the heart of PB. Definitely recommend this hotel if you're looking for an awesome location, nice/clean stay and a relaxed vibe!

This hotel is located on the southern side of Pacific Beach close to all of the fun. The parking does cost money, but rarely is parking free in this area. The location provides great views of the beach and ocean. The beds are wonderful. Our room opens up to the pool and the pool is located on the board walk.... More
