“Great View, Nice Rooms”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We were expecting a "typical" beachfront motel. We were WRONG. Rooms were very clean, nice decor, with the added advantage of being very quiet, despite being steps from the beach.
Only draw back was we arrived late, and parking along the beach is at a premium. Front desk personnel helped us find the underground parking and we were set. We wished we could have stayed longer - we would definitely return again.

Room Tip: Ask for at least a partial ocean view.

We have stayed with you three times now in an Oceanfront Room ... My girl and I have had the time of our lives and it just keeps getting better ... We have Happy Hour next door at "World Famous" come back and watch movies, watch the Sunset over the Ocean, take a long jacuzzi and let our hair down ...
We forget the world outside and our issues with reality disappear into the utopia of Blue Sea Lodge ...
Your accommodations are top shelf just as your staff. The front desk as well as housekeeping are friendly, polite, uplifting, kind and benevolent ... We are eager to return to your venue if the invitation and / or promotional package should come to fruition ...
We are at one with peace and our Love is as pure as the Ocean Air while residing at your Best Western Blue Sea Lodge ...
Thank You,

If you are looking for a real experience at a Southern Ca. beach town, you have come to the right place. The beach in front is perfect, the boardwalk is filled with skate boarders, walkers, and bike riders, it was really really fun to be a part of. They rent bikes as well.
The interior of the actual hotel is a bit weathered, but the room itself was great.
Staff were very pleasant and helpful.
The location could not be better. 15 minutes north of downtown San Diego and airport, and conveniently located to everywhere. Terrific restaurants in walking distance.
I will be back next time for pleasure.

We have been coming to the Blue Sea Lodge with our children & grandchildren every summer for 32 years, & we wouldn't stay anywhere else. The location is perfect! The beach is clean & family friendly (no alcohol or smoking allowed) & you can't beat the sound of the ocean waves day & night. The kids really like the pool & hot tub, too. The rooms are clean, & the furnishings are kept very up-to-date. Restaurants, fast food, ice cream, & groceries are all in walking distance. We really like having the underground parking. We came this time in May & had a great time relaxing & celebrating my husband's birthday. Ruben & Jen were so helpful in making it memorable. Can't wait to return with our family in July!

I have stayed at the Blue Sea Lodge a few times and I enjoy it every time! So relaxing and so Beautiful! I can't wait to return, because I already know what kind of vacation I will have. I also love the fact that Sea World/ Old Town / SD Zoo / Coronado Island / too many to mention sight seeing places are close.

Room Tip: all rooms are great.

Great location - on the beach with dining and recreation just steps away. Very helpful staff as well. We had a room overlooking the pool and had no issues with noise. This was our second stay and we'll return when back in the area!

Room Tip: Third floor and overlooking pool equates to quiet!
