Jane S, thank you for visiting our fine city and choosing our hotel as a base to experience the area. Our hotel is not only located steps from the beach but within walking distance to all major bus lines so if you choose to leave the beauty of the beach for other adventures it’s not only economical but super convenient! Thank you for your kind words about our staff, they are our greatest asset!

Regards,
Ruben Garza

We vacation a lot if you check my profile(San Diego Retired Guy). We also do staycations here in San Diego often. This Blue Sea Lodge was the best stay for the money and location in Mission Beach. Ocean view nice balcony quite with slider closed on the boardwalk and hall.ways. Fridg. micro.mini bar sink and stools plenty of in room coffee. easy walk to anything you needed. But I broke my rule instead of callling the hotel direct (must in my book) I went with the national 800# They did not really know the hotel lay out and did not understand what I really wanted in a room. At this hotel you get Pool side, Partial water view, Water view and Ocean front rooms. I thought water view would = ocean front and I asked twice. Management is the best They made it all happen. Best beach stay here so far Think this hotel first

My family and I always stay here when we travel to San Diego! We absolutely love it! This trip we stayed in an ocean front family suite, which was wonderful and the price was great too! The location of this hotel cannot be beat! I love to walk right out of the door onto the beach! All of the staff are so, so nice and helpful! The kids LOVE the pool! Our room was clean, bathrooms nice, everything was great! The only thing that was a bit disappointing was the $18/day parking, as our group had 2 cars!! Otherwise, we always have a great experience at Blue Sea Lodge. We are already planning our trip back for next year!

Room Tip: The views from the ocean front rooms cannot be beat!

From the nurmurous phone calls we placed prior to our arrival to find the perfect view, to the flexibility of the staff that allowed us to change rooms mid-stay, to parking, friendly staff, and absolutely incredible ocean front rooms and pool, this hotel is the best of San Diego Pacific Beach!

The location is the first thing you notice. Separated from the ocean and beautiful white sand of Pacific Beach only by the Boardwalk, the superhighway of skateboards, bicycles, and happy people in constant motion from dawn until late night, the blue tile roofed buildings surround a palm landscaped courtyard. The centerpiece is the swimming pool and hot tub, surrounded by inviting poolside chairs, tables, and chaise lounges overlooking the beach, sheltered by a clear windscreen for those who want a break from the cool sea breeze. Inside, the rooms are equally attractive. Most rooms in the North and South towers have an ocean view, each with private balcony looking out on the beach on the outer rooms, and beach and courtyard on the inner side. Be on your balcony to watch the Sun set on the Pacific Ocean as many evenings as you can. Beds are large and comfortable. Leave your sliding door open and go to sleep to the sound of Pacific surf. Rooms have a small refrigerator and microwave, with kitchen sink and breakfast bar. Attractive decorations surround your dining table, by the glass wall overlooking the ocean. Bathrooms are very nicely appointed, with walk-in tile shower and more fresh white towels than you can possibly use. The housekeeping service is excellent, and Superivsor Armando is happy to schedule service to accommodate your needs. Extra supplies are delivered on request, always with a smile. The people are maybe the most outstanding feature of Blue Sea Lodge. The Front Desk people are exceptionally friendly and helpful, always handling problems large or small with a smile, making life easy for the traveler. They always have good advice on where to eat, things to do, and information on the many local attractions. Manager Ruben Garza keeps the whole thing running smoothly. When my employer extended my business trip, Ruben made it happen. How long? No problem. Done! Everything you need is an enjoyable walk up and down the street. Excellent restaurants of all kinds, shops, rentals of beach gear, bicycles, skateboards, as well as surfing lessons are all nearby. Many pleasant evening walks await you. When you consider the whole package, staying at Blue Sea Lodge is truly an awesome Experience!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the ocean view rooms.

We spent our last night here for the ocean views and it didn't dissapoint!
The rooms are dated and there is a parking fee at $18/day.
I did hear that the hotel will be undergoing renovations soon, and there is parking available on the street if you can get it.
The location is what makes this hotel! Otherwise,it is just an average hotel. I would love to see it post renovations.

Even though the hotel is older, the room was spacious and clean and the view from the 'ocean front' unit was magnificent. The beds were very comfortable and the staff had met every need I had inquired about when making the reservation. I was traveling with my daughter who has special needs so the thoughtful staff was greatly appreciated with their helpfulness. The location can't be beat and I'm already making plans to return to Pacific Beach once again.
