It's not often that a hotel is BETTER in person than it appears in photos on their own website. My expectations were high based on reviews on here, but wow, they were beyond exceeded. The Blue Sea Beach Hotel is literally in the most perfect location. The beach is seconds away from your room. The room had a small refrigerator, microwave, big flat screen TV. Pay a little extra for ocean view...you can leave the patio door open and listen to the waves right outside as you sleep. Everything was immaculate, from the rooms to the lobby, pool/hot tub area, etc. It looked a bit rough in the parking lot, but as soon as we walked in, I knew this would be the only place I would stay if I come back to San Diego. Excellent service, nice respectful guests, right near everything but far enough from the noisier places. Overall an excellent stay.
Booked a 3rd floor queen ocean front suite 2 queen and couldn't be happier. I checked out other beach front hotels before deciding on Blue Sea; however, they were far too expensive for rooms with a direct ocean view. That said, after walking the length of both Mission and Pacifica beaches, I would choose Blue Suite again the next time I visit San Diego. Gorgeous clear views of the beach and ocean from our room and the pool (both of which were very clean). The beach is accessible directly from the pool area. There is also a large grocery store within walking distance to stock up on drinks and snacks for the room (ours had a small mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker). Didn't have a car - Ubers came in less than 2 minutes anytime we needed to go somewhere. Booked several excursions, but the morning walks up and down the beach was the best part of the trip.
