Montrose, Colorado

We really enjoyed our room - we could leave the door open and hear the ocean as well as see it. We had an ocean view room and not an ocean front room which we preferred. The ocean front would have too many people going by and we like privacy. The staff was very helpful and gave us a ticket...

This hotel is located beach front at Pacific beach drive. The location can't be better. The rooms are above average, always clean and everything looks new. The service is very good and there is a lot of parking space available for customers. My overall experience here was about 9.4/10, and I will definitely consider returning and recommending this hotel to...

We returned to the Blue Sea again this year for our anniversary and had a great time - again! They remodeled since our last visit, and it looks great - kind of a clean chic look - very nice. And the beds were super comfortable. We again loved being right on the beach and boardwalk, and listening to the ocean...

We absolutely love this hotel & have stayed here every time we visit San Diego! The staff could not be more friendly or accommodating.

This hotel is right in the heart of PB and close to all the action. You can walk right out onto the beach. If you have a room by the pool it tends to be a little more noisy but you should be out enjoying PB anyways! The room is perfect for a casual beach trip.

Friendly staff in a fantastic location. Short walk up the beach for entertainment or a short car ride for even more. The hotel was clean and all the people I had interaction with were super. I will definitely go here again and will upgrade from Ocean View to Ocean Front.
