If you are looking for clean accommodation that is directly on the beach, then this is the perfect hotel. If you are looking for luxury, then this hotel may disappoint. It is a little dated, but immacately clean! The view could not be better, we had a room that had a full ocean view and we loved it! The front desk staff were friendly and helpful and the cleaning staff did a great job! We stayed 6 days and enjoyed the area very much! The direct access to the beach was perfect, the pool and spa were clean and the view was relaxing! Although we drive a larger vehicle we had no problem parking in the secure area. This hotel is a short walk to lots of extraordinary restaurants. We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Our room was full ocean view and worth every penny! Very quite with the only sound being the waves...

We stayed at the Blue Sea Lodge for several days. They were very friendly and accommodating. We came in early and they provided us a card so we could access the bathrooms and other facilities. The facilities are very good and kept up. The room was very comfortable and clean. We had an ocean view room with a view of the pool and hot tub and could hear the ocean waves at night. There is a charge of $17 per day for parking. We were not there during a busy period so we were able to park on the street right in front of the motel. Busy periods and weekends tie up the available street parking. We did have to disable the Windows Firewall on the computer to get the wireless to work but other than that everything went very well. The mission beach area is a very active area with many restaurants and activities. We went to San Diego just to spend time on the beach and the Blue Sea Lodge was a perfect place to stay.

Room Tip: Ocean view with view of pool & hot tub.

This was our second visit to the hotel. The location is awesome and only steps away from the beach. When we come back to the San Diego area we will be staying here again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the ocean with a full view are great. Ask for 2nd floor or higher so you can leave your...

Loved the view from this hotel, even though we had only a "Partial View" room. The kitchenette in our room was a pleasant surprise as well. Nice pool and hot tub, but the best part was the location on the beach! Clean rooms, friendly staff - would definately book this hotel again!

Hi Had a nice stay, the area was awesome ..we are on the beach, walking distane to all needs and beatiful towns close by..the rooms were clean and the staff was super friendly. I stayed for 5 days with my 14 yerar old daughter and we loved San Diego.. My day was simple I woke up went to the gym which was a 2 minute walk not part of hotel but they gave me a 3 day comp pass.. then we had breakfast which was a 1 minute walk..lol. then took rental car and just drove to La jolla , Laguna beach, Cordona, Down town San Diego.. and if we didnt have a plan at the moment then we just drove around... The sunset was unbelievable watch it from a different location each night for different scenery for pictures.. one of the nights we watched from our Best western room on our bacony..we used enterprise rental and Jet blue..hope this helped someone.. have fun.

Room Tip: Our room was a suite with ocean view.. 1st floor which was fine ..but 2nd or 3rd would have been nic...

Wonderful hotel with a fabulous view. We stayed here for only one night, but we wished it could have been longer. Great location on the beach and close to Sea World!
