very nice, a little on the expensive side, very friendly staff, should have said something about a few things that were not working right. I'm sure they would have fixed them. I would stay here again. I was all setup for another hotel, I changed at the last minute, glad I did

My room was a nice size with a kitchenette. The beds are comfortable and all the rooms have balconies ! Walk out the hotel door and you are on the beach....it couldn't be better !! My stay was wonderful and I plan to stay again :)

If you're planning for a great time at the beach this is the place to be. You can be steps away from the ocean and listen to the relaxing sound of the surf from your room's balcony. Everything you need is within short walking distance. The Best Western flag ensures that your room will be clean and safe.

Great location & there is a hot tub and out door shower to rinse the sand off after coming from the beach. This is right on the beach/boardwalk. rooms are a bit out dated & can be a bit musty if it's humid (labor day weekend was). a bit pricey as well for the hotel and rooms, but again it's a straight walk out to the beach and on the boardwalk. Also, the staff both times we've stayed were wonderful!

You can not beat the location of this hotel. Right on the beach. Plenty of parking. Nice pool area with hot tub. Rooms were nice - clean and comfortable. My one complaint was that there are only ice machines on the first floor, kind of inconvenient. Overall, great experience.

Room Tip: I would highly recommend an oceanview room. Quite pricey but worth it.

My wife and I have stayed at the Blue Sea Lodge in Pacific Beach a total of six times. We have been there in all of the seasons, and very much enjoyed the stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are a bit small, however they are very clean and appointed well. We have always gotten a room with a front ocean view. That in itself is one of the most outstanding aspects of the stay. Anything you could possibly want is within walking distance of the hotel. Many shops and great eateries in the area. This hotel is a great place to get away and relax. We have always had a great time in Pacific Beach, and the Blue Sea Lodge just makes the time that much more enjoyable.

Room Tip: If at all possible, try to get an ocean front room. During the summer months try to avoid the main...

Traveled here with some buddies for a spur-of-the-moment beach trip and was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness. Like everything at Mission Beach it's a little dated, but does the job. If you travel here, be sure to hit up Konos by the pier for breakfast and get there early.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the 3rd floor rooms as you'll get the best ocean view.

Thank you for posting your comments! Our convenient beach front location makes it ideal for those spur-of-the-moment beach trips with your friends. We look forward to you and your buddies returning back to the Blue Sea Lodge so you can indulge in a great breakfast at Konos, located just down the board walk from us.
