One Of Many On The Beach

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 1, 2006

Pacific Beach is the most popular beach community of San Diego. The hotels along this stretch of sand are pretty expensive and the BW Blue Sea Lodge is no exception, but the price of a room is less than others on the beach in this area, so in that sense, it is a budget hotel.

I haven't stayed here, just passed by.

Best Western usually offers a clean and safe place for travelers to stay. It is located on the corner of Pacific Beach Drive and Mission Boulevard and the part of the building that can be seen from these streets looks unappealing. However, it is a "U" shaped building, the center of which has a pool and a spa. It opens onto the PB Boardwalk and beyond that the Pacific Ocean.

The prices are high for the simple amenities offered, and the per day parking fee seems outrageous to me. I should say that, I would never pay extra just to be right on the beach at PB in the first place, but if you really are thrilled by the idea of being this close to all the action, BW Blue Sea Lodge offers a ringside seat. The price of a room ranges from $125.00 for a standard King to $175.00 for a Queen ocean front room and that is Off Season!

I would add, that if you stay here and just want beach city amenities, you won't actually need a car.

Unique Quality: The unique quality of this place is it's location. They offer the basics in amenities and they do have a little coffeeshop type restaurant area, The Coastal Cafe, they call it. Most importantly, they head their website with the promise of, "Gracious hospitality and Beautiful beachfront." All true.

They do offer rooms with kitchenettes, which adds the posibility of saving while on a family vacation.

A Spurge thats worth it

I've stayed here twice now, and its been a great experience both times. However, the price is definitely a killer if you are on a budget. You are paying for a fantastic location, you can literally walk out onto the beach from your room if you want!! The room itself was nice, we did have a fridge and microwave, which could help offset the food cost, if you are staying for a while. Thank goodness for Best Western Travel Gift Cards!! PLUS you have to pay for parking!! Wasn't too impressed with that.

Unique Quality: Location, Location, Location.....
Its amazing the difference in price of a hotel a block or two can make!!

Directions: South on Mission Bay Blvd., decent restaraunts within walking distance.
