Had a great week in San Diego and very much enjoyed our stay at this hotel. You are steps away from one of the best beaches in So. Cal., they have a wonderful staff, and great amenities. Pool, hot tub, laundry facility, lobby with free access to a computer/Internet, and a very accommodating staff. Had a great time and we...

Probably just like every review here will state, don’t judge this place by its outside appearance. Location wise it is probably in the best location especially for the price. While researching our trip, I had seen the ads for Blue Sea but the outside picture made me not consider this place at first, besides, at the time, I was researching...

I stayed here for 3 nights this week while attending a conference across the street. I am currently on crutches for a leg injury. While the staff were supportive and went out of their way to assist me, the actual hotel is not built to accommodate anyone with mobility issues, whether in a wheelchair, on crutches, or using a walker....

This hotel provides excellent customer service. The beds are comfortable & the showers are great with water pressure & hot water. Everyday the cleaning staff did a wonderful job making sure our room was spotless. The only drawback is the hot tub. It's not hot. They try to keep it clean but with so many small children in it, I...

We only stayed one night and we will definitely be back. The oceanfront upgrade was worth every penny! I am also stealing the color scheme in our room -- so relaxing and yet playful. The pool and spa area also overlook the boardwalk and a security door allows guests easy access to the beach. The staff was friendly and I...

We shared a suite with my in-laws and kids (two beds in bedroom and separate living room with fold out couch)- room 314. That was a great value if you don't mind sharing.
