The service at this hotel was outstanding. The hotel was over booked and instead of being told there was no ocean view room available and given a room with a partial ocean view or no view at all, we were upgraded to a suite at no addtional cost. I have no idea why we were picked for this great upgrade but it made a friends birthday celebration unforgetable. This is the third or fourth time I have stayed at this hotel and I have never been disappointed. The staff, service, clean rooms and reasonable rates are the reason I will be back in a couple of months.

Room Tip: Ocean view, partial ocean view or pool view are the best rooms. All have good views. Ocean view suites are large with a living room (two chairs, couch and TV), kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave and sink, large bedroom, two bathrooms and two balcony areas. Having two bathrooms was a great plus when staying in the Ocean view suite.

Excellent location, friendly staff, great value for a beach front room! I did not know where to stay in San Diego, luckily stumbled on this Best Western right on the beach with a bike/ walking path ... Quintessential California!

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.
