“Fun in the Sun”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We stayed in the pool suite with a great view of Pacific Beach from the sofa. We had patio chairs and a private patio as well as access to the pool and jacuzzi. Everything we wanted, dining, shopping, Belmont Park and beach were within a few minutes walk. I loved that we could park onsite and there was security.

Christos B, I agree our poolside rooms and suites are a great place to sit back and enjoy all the beach has to offer (without getting sand on your feet). Our year round heated pool and spa with unobstructed views to the water are guest favorites. We look forward to your next visit.

Sincerely,
Ruben Garza

Great beach front location. Walk to restaurants, beach activities, Belmont Park. Not a lot of parking if you arrive late at night. Parking fee is reasonable. No free breakfast but they provide a small area in lobby to purchase food, but many restaurants along the boardwalk offereing breakfast, lunch, dinner. Very nice staff!

My husband and I have stayed at the Best Western Blue Sea Lodge 4 times now over the past 7 years. We choose it every time we want to stay in the Pacific Beach/Mission Beach area. The hotel is literally 20 feet from the ocean, the rooms are simple but clean and decent sized equipped with mini fridges, coffee maker, and microwave. The hotel staff has always gone out of their way to do a little something extra if you need it, and the prices are really fair for being in such a prime location. I really recommend this hotel for those who don't want to spend their life savings on a weeks vacation but still want to be right on the beach!

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!

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!
