old gray lady renewed

Posted Nov 21, 2017
my immediate reaction was slightly disappointed by the age. yet the Hotel in a matter of moments grows important and elegant. The staff from desk to housekeeping are delightful. i highly recommend the Blue Sea Hotel.

Close to the beach

Posted Nov 20, 2017
Pros: The staff was nice and the hotel rooms were clean.
Cons: Nothing really.
The hotel was in a good location but our "ocean view" was more of a reach your head out the sliding door and look to the right kinda view lol! Or, you could see the reflection in the mirror. The parking was $22 a night so that was a bummer. Other than those downsides, the location for eating and walking on the beach is perfect. Staff was very friendly!

Great Hotel in FANTASTIC location

Posted Nov 16, 2017
Pros: Location, updated rooms, pool area
This is a very nicely updated hotel. Great staff that helped with anything we needed with no hassle. We had a room that faced the pool which had a fine view, not as good as the ones facing the beach of course, but lets be honest, when in San Diego you're not in your room much. Really nice pool area that is cleaned daily. We spend most of our time on the beach. It was nice having the public restrooms close (right next to hotel) when hanging on the beach. Easy walking access to restaurants and shops and all that as well. You won't be disappointed if you stay at the Blue Sea.

PERFECT location!

Posted Nov 1, 2017
Pros: Location. Décor. Very eclectic.
Cons: Nothing really
Location: Lots to do well within walking distance. Could sit on the balcony and watch the waves breaking and people with their dogs go by all day.
Right on the beach and boardwalk. Lots to do nearby - restaurants, bars, activities, people watching. I will be back!
