Beautiful locatioin

I booked a room with two beds, for one adult and two teens. Was given a room with one bed and a fold out couch. After calling front desk I was told the hotel was overbooked. I went down to front desk and was given a room with two beds. It seemed all was well until I discovered the air conditioner didn't work. Several calls to front desk resulted in the staff bringing a large fan to the room. I was told this rooms air conditioner doesn't work. Why rent this room until it is fixed?? Management did switch my room the next day, back to one bed and fold out couch, and comped my first night that was hot and muggy. Also, hot tub chemicals bleached out colors of my daughter and mines new swimsuits. Management readily reimbursed the cost of suits. This was very generous and more than I expected. I also received follow up call from manager to make sure I was satisfied. The facility is lovely with recent room makeovers and location cant be beat. Felt safe with key card required to access hotel from beach.

Great experience!

Our 2nd stay at this property. Just one night. We were upgraded to an oceanfront suite. The ambience was terrific, despite the weather. Both visits here were excellent. Great rooms and staff. Only drawback might be the $18 parking fee - but then again you're on the ocean in Pacific Beach. This has become our first choice when visiting San Diego.

Great hotel in the sand

I think this Best Western was a great value for the money. Oceanfront, nice little pool area and Hot Tub, bike rentals and a little cafe for a simple breakfast or quick dinner. Room was clean other than the usual wear and tear you see it at most hotels near the water. Staff was friendly too. I have stayed at other Oceanfront hotels in this area and found this one to be a great value.

Weekend Getaway

This hotel is right on the beach so the location was perfect! There is countless bars/restaurants/shops/grocery stores walking distance from us. You can literally be relaxing in the hot tub while looking out at the ocean. Our room was literally a few steps from the Jacuzzi which was awesome. Staff was very friendly and took care of us. Check in wasn't until 4 but they got us in as soon as possible so by 2 we had our room. While we waited a couple hrs from the time we arrived, the front staff gave us coupons for a free appetizer at a nice brewery/kebob place a few feet away. The room wasn't big but fine for 2 ppl, microwave, fridge, table, comfy bed, clean and nice decor. We will definitely be coming back when the weather is nicer so we can really take advantage of the incredible location!

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

You have so many options as to where to go in for a meal and or drinks and enjoy the gorgeous views while partying. They are all within a 10 min walk from the hotel. Also, we noticed that drinks are not too expensive at all the places we went to, especially compared to the gaslamp district. There is a Ralphs grocery store on mission blvd toward Garnett where you can stock up on liquor and microwavable snacks to save a few bucks.

Good hotel on the boardwalk.

Basic hotel but with balconies, which had a partial ocean view. Most view was dominated by public parking. Speaking of parking, it wasn't ideal. We were lucky and managed to catch a public spot each night. If we hadn't, hotel parking was $18 a day. Heated pool and hot tub. Both protected from the wind with glass partitions. Direct beach access from pool area. Lots of restaurants within walking distance. Went during spring break. A lot of drunk high school / college age kids. Occasional smells of marijuana and alcohol or loud noise. Hotel did it's best to control it, including evicting our neighbors sometime during the night.

Hover in the corner of the boardwalk and hotel to wait for a public parking spot. Restaurant and beach goers are in and out frequently at all hours.

Fun Birthday Trip

I flew to CA from OH to celebrate my birthday with my daughter and son, who both live in CA. We had a wonderful time staying on the beach at the Best Western Blue Sea Lodge in San Diego. The room was clean and nice and the staff was friendly and helpful. We wished the weather had been warmer but we still had a great time. It will always be a special birthday and one I will never forget.

The World Famous restaurant was right across from the hotel. We sat at window by the beach and ocean. The food was excellent and we were given a VIP pass from the hotel. The restaurant brought me a creme brulee with a candle in it for my birthday. It was a wonderful birthday dinner.

Not fancy, but fantastic!

The location of this hotel is great. Why stay downtown when you can be 10 mins by car outside and stay right on Mission Beach, and still have plenty of eating and nightlife around you? While not fancy at all, this Best Western clean, safe and has a friendly and attentive staff that is eager to make your stay pleasant. If you spend the few extra bucks and get the ocean-view room you will be glad that you did. The sunsets and boardwalk people watching are terrific. There is pay parking in a garage available, or there is free public parking near by. Recommended for couples on a budget or families with kids who care more about being ont the beach than staying in the room.

Perfect Location,

The hotel is located in the Heart of Mission Beach with a paved path along the beach for walking biking running ect. Everything you need is in walking distance with a short ride to Seaworld and the zoo.Hotel was clean and fairly quiet. Rentals for bikes and boards are everywhere. Beach is open all night so that was a plus that you could stroll the beach at night. Lifeguards on duty during the day was nice to see. Felt very safe at night out in public. The Hotel offers a nice breakfast in the lobby that was priced right. Looking forward to coming back next summer.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If going to Seaworld, the Zoo, or Safari adventure, Get 3 for 1 pass at costco, saves $50 per person. Also, try to get oceanfront view room, the partial looks at the pool. 3rd floor is BEST.
