I have never expected to have the fun we had. We loved the rides (Manta was so great). Some of the rides were better than Disney, and we kept doing them again and again. The kids loved the place especially with fast track option. Get your tickets online to avoid the lines.

We were in San Diego in late May 2015 for the Rock n Roll Marathon. The weather was perfect for a run! We chose to stay at the beach rather than downtown- you've got to be at the beach if you visit San Diego! The Good- location is amazing! The lounge chairs by the pool facing the ocean allow for...

We stayed 3 nights, clean rooms, comfy beds, nice bathrooms. Weather was cool so we did not get to enjoy pool or beach. Busy but convenient location and easy to get to San Diego or La Jolla from there. We stayed in partial ocean view and could see ocean well. Restaurants within walking distance

What a great place. Great location, right on the beach ans close to everything else you could want or need. The staff is super friendly and very helpful. I think the beds are the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever slept in ( better than most 5 star hotels). We loved our stay and can't wait to return.

This hotel is great at what it is. It offers no freebies except wifi (works well) and beach towels (nice and appreciated). The housekeeping staff was friendly and nice and did a good job. The front desk was nice and good and their jobs. There is lots of restaurants within walking distance and the beach is just so amazing. I...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Blue Sea Beach Hotel. The location is fantastic! Just steps from Pacific Beach & in the middle of everything! You walk out of the hotel & you are on the strand & steps away from the beach & restaurants. The staff was friendly & helpful. Our rooms were exactly as pictured on the...

The hotel staff were all very accommodating the entire time. Some people have claimed the rooms are 'tight,' and I suppose for some they are, but they were still great rooms. We had a partial ocean view, and our room opened out into the pool area with a view of the ocean. There was a huge mirror in the room...

Did an overnight trip to San Deigo and stayed here. The room was clean, smelled good and big. Great location on the beach and within walking distance to places to eat. The elevator was noisy and shake.
