“Good choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

I stayed there for 4 nights. This is a Best Western as anyone can expect – no surprises. Quick check in and check out. Enough space in the room. The location, at Pacific Beach served us very well - close to Sea World, Old Town, airport and not very far from downtown.

The room was very clean and the staff was accommodating. I would probably stay at this hotel again, but in another room. The hotel was in a great location, but the shower head kept falling off, and the choice of TV stations was sad. The screen door was difficult to open and shut. The air conditioning was freezing or not on at all.

This hotel is great, the staff is friendly and courteous, the facilities are kept very clean and neat. Great service, good location. Ask for an Ocean Front room, you will not regret it. From sunsets viewed from your balcony to the beach a few steps away, wonderful destination.

We stayed in the pool suite with a great view of Pacific Beach from the sofa. We had patio chairs and a private patio as well as access to the pool and jacuzzi. Everything we wanted, dining, shopping, Belmont Park and beach were within a few minutes walk. I loved that we could park onsite and there was security.

Christos B, I agree our poolside rooms and suites are a great place to sit back and enjoy all the beach has to offer (without getting sand on your feet). Our year round heated pool and spa with unobstructed views to the water are guest favorites. We look forward to your next visit.

Sincerely,
Ruben Garza

Great beach front location. Walk to restaurants, beach activities, Belmont Park. Not a lot of parking if you arrive late at night. Parking fee is reasonable. No free breakfast but they provide a small area in lobby to purchase food, but many restaurants along the boardwalk offereing breakfast, lunch, dinner. Very nice staff!

My husband and I have stayed at the Best Western Blue Sea Lodge 4 times now over the past 7 years. We choose it every time we want to stay in the Pacific Beach/Mission Beach area. The hotel is literally 20 feet from the ocean, the rooms are simple but clean and decent sized equipped with mini fridges, coffee maker, and microwave. The hotel staff has always gone out of their way to do a little something extra if you need it, and the prices are really fair for being in such a prime location. I really recommend this hotel for those who don't want to spend their life savings on a weeks vacation but still want to be right on the beach!

Jane S, thank you for visiting our fine city and choosing our hotel as a base to experience the area. Our hotel is not only located steps from the beach but within walking distance to all major bus lines so if you choose to leave the beauty of the beach for other adventures it’s not only economical but super convenient! Thank you for your kind words about our staff, they are our greatest asset!
