The room

Posted May 1, 2015
Pros: the location
Room 357 is so small that it is difficult to walk between the bed and the TV set.

Loved staying right on the beach. Hotel staff was great. Rooms very nice and quiet. They even had bikes to rent!

The only negative is the parking situation.. Be sure to pay the parking fee or you won't be able to find parking.

Great Location!

Posted Apr 20, 2015
My family and I stayed for two nights in one if the ocean front rooms. The room was nicely decorated and very clean. The bathroom was a bit small but I didn't mind too much. The staff was very nice and friendly. Parking is extra just FYI. We will be returning for years to come.

Great location; nice hotel

Posted Apr 12, 2015
Pros: Location!
Cons: While some staff was extremely nice (especially the folks when we checked in), others were a bit standoffish\snobby.
Location: This hotel is a quick walk to good restaurants and right on the beach!
From what I understand this was previously a Best Western. It has definitely been updated with a mod vibe and mostly friendly staff. The rooms are good sized and beds are relatively comfy. Love the heated floor in the bathroom. Excellent location right on Pacific Beach.

Great hotel, great location. Just know that if you bring a car, parking is $18 per night unless you can find one of the very few public parking spaces. For food, try the La Playa Taco Shop less than a block away, great food, great people, and great prices. Definitely grab a torta from there.

Nice hotel wonderfully close to the beach.

We enjoyed our 4 night stay at the Blue Sea Hotel. We loved walking along the boardwalk every evening. The little gift shops and cafes were also convenient for us. We plan on visiting San Diego every year and will more than likely stay at the Blue Sea!
