I love it when I can say the title above. Once again, I chose it because of the reviews here. Many of the reviews suggested we ask for a third floor, partial view of the ocean review. That was perfect! Our balcony was very private w/ an amazing view of the Pacific. The staff was exceptional, I mean every one... More

We had a great stay for our time away together! We are so busy at home that we don't see each other a lot and coming here was what the dr ordered. Upon arrival, our uber driver dropped us off right out front. Parking is expensive. The staff at the desk is super nice and got us right in. There... More

We stayed for two nights and the rooms were good size, very clean , super comfortable beds and modern. We are especially pleased with the excellent and very professional staff at the hotel. What an amazing place to watch the sun set! There was plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Sea World is ten minutes away by car.I would recommend... More

Close to the beach a big plus. The pool area has no food or bathroom. It's very odd to have to trek to the lobby for a bathroom. They have some snacks in the lobby for purchase. Lots of restaurants and clubs near by. Some iffy people along the walk way at night. They do have a microwave and small... More

The location of this hotel is fantastic and the people who worked there were extremely nice. Unfortunately for me the rooms and hallways were a complete disappointment. The lobby is bright, colorful and cheery, but the rooms are dark and tiny. We were told that all the rooms had been renovated three years ago. That was hard to believe given... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Having a car was good for SD and there was parking but a bit tight if you have an oversized vehicle, we did not. The room had a (partial) northern ocean view that was great. The room was light and airy with a comfy king and had futon for my son. A bit tight... More

Definitely more of a motel, but right on the beach and boardwalk. Compared to other hotel/motel/inns, we can't complain. It was comfortable, and you can park on the street instead of their lot (at $20, or $25 per night). We went in September.

I'm kind of over staying near the beach in San Diego. Too many people and the overall area is run down. Would rather go to Laguna Beach, La Jolla or even Oceanside. We only stayed one night here and my review is tainted because I just don't like the area anymore. The best parts: the hotel was clean, the front... More

What a fabulous hotel and location for a family get-together on the beach in San Diego! Our extended family of 12, ranging in age from 2 to 66 had a wonderful Labor Day weekend stay at the Blue Sea Beach Hotel. From check-in to check-out the service was top-notch. All of the staff couldn't do enough to meet every request.... More
