Stayed 3 nights at this perfect ocean front location.. Rooms were clean, all the staff were always nice and helpful. The view was the most perfect ocean view.Hope to return in the summer. Plenty to do without even driving. Nice pool and jacuzzi overlooking the ocean. Bars and restaurants close by. Only annoying thing for me was paying extra for...

Was a little scared when I pulled up to the hotel because it looks dumpy from the street, but loved our room and the hotel from the back looks nice. Small but nice pool and hot tub outside facing the ocean. Very nice to be right in ocean, but know it's a young/ college/drinking crowd in this area. No breakfast,...

Stayed two nights with the hubby. Doesn't look like much from the outside when we pulled up but as soon as you step into the lobby, you are greeted by cheerful, friendly, and helpful staff. We had an ocean VIEW (not ocean FRONT) room, which was great. Right over the pool though- so if you are an early or light...

Loved our 2 night stay at the beach in SD! There was always something to do and the scenery was awesome from our balcony. The pool was ok , fairly warm, but the hot tub was great! My daughter also took surf lessons right on the beach in front of the hotel. Great fun! So many great breakfast places near...

We love staying here. The hotel has been renovated over the past few years as well. Mostly, the ocean views, beach and pool and great service keep us coming back! The coffee in the room is quite good as well!

If you want to be close to the Beach and some great restaurants, this place is for you. I selected the Blue Sea so that I could be on the beach rather than walking several blocks to get there. It was a great location. The hotel has been redone and looked new inside. The decour was modern and hip. The...

I had to revert from booking my usual resort stay and find another place in San Diego. I wasn't too sure what to expect because of the exterior pic and lack of more intensive reviews. My top must haves will have to be clean and updated or well kept rooms, this hotel met those standards and blew me away. For...

Stayed here for five nights with our family. Location is close to everything....didn't even need a car. The beaches and waves were fantastic. Great food nearby too. Best of all was the incredible staff. Everyone we talked to was very helpful and nice. They even had beach towels, umbrellas and chairs for the beach. If you like sunsets and/or people...
