Our family has stayed at the Blue Sea Lodge for years. Our most recent stay was 3/2/13. The staff is awesome and very accommodating. The location is perfect. You can park your car and walk everywhere. During the years we have stayed in both the North and South towers, as well as, the rooms located over the office. Depending on your budget and plans, either the oceanview or ocean front is great. Personally, I prefer to spend the extra and stay in the ocean front. The 2nd and 3rd floors offer better views.

Room Tip: rooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors, ocean front offer the best views. There needs to be another categor...

My 1 night stay was totally worth it. Sal and Cesar at the front desk made it memorable for me. Thanks guys, I will be back!! Ocean front suite with 2 bathrooms, couldnt ask for more ;-). Needed a get away and it sure was. It was my 2nd stay at the Blue Sea Lodge and the cleanliness of the rooms is just great.

This was a very nice room on a wonderful location. Restaurants to the north, homes to the south along the Strand. Also very close to Sail Bay and water activities there. We took a short bus ride to Old town. Agreed it is a great price for the location, room and service. Parking across the street was much more reasonable. We had issues with the heater in two different rooms. The first was nonfunctional, so they loaned us a space heater for one night, moved us to the oceanfront room for the next night. The heater there was strange with very erratic behavior, frequent cycling, noisy and blowing straight to the bed, even when the deflector was stopped in the down position. In winter I would pause before staying there.

Room Tip: Ask for oceanfront, not just ocean view. Check the heater if needed.

Good rates for a beachfront room in a great location. Very friendly staff. Was unaware of the parking fee, but the price was still reasonable. I have stayed in nicer (more up to date) places, but for the price, the location, and the service, it is probably the best place to stay in the Mission Beach / Pacific Beach area.

Room Tip: Beachfront patio or balconies are fantastic. I would recomend a second floor patio or higher. On t...

We asked for a room with a view of the ocean and we got it. The beds were very comfortable and the pillows were perfect. You can lounge by the pool and still watch the surfers.
Near by restaurants were great and a number of them also had wonderful ocean views.
The promenade that runs in front of the Blue Sea Lodge is the perfect place to people watch.

Great value for the money, ask for the room with ocean view and you will not be disappointed! If you are coming by in a car, prepare to pay $12 parking fee, however you will be offered cookies at the reception to numb the pain. Overall, 10/10 would stay there again, simply due to the location

Room Tip: get the ocean view

My husband and I stayed for 3 weeks in a spacious, well maintained suite with 2 balconies overlooking the beach. We were amazed at the professionalism, friendliness and dedication of the staff. Our rooms were always clean, all supplies were replenished immediately, a bathroom leak repaired within 20 minutes of our call. Breakfast in a little cafe downstairs was simple but served with care. The location is ideal: we drove to Balboa park and other San Diego City attractions in 25-30 minutes. La Jolla and Torrey Pines State Park were even closer. There was so much to see in San Diego area. Locally, Pacific Beach is a nice place with long white stretches of sand and good for the surfers. Plenty of eating and drinking facilities. Some of the best rated restaurants are in Pacific Beach and we visited them. We had a great time.
