My wife and I booked a king partial-view room through Best Western's website. There was indeed a view of the ocean from the sliding glass door as long as no one was standing on the landing next to the pool. What we didn't notice until nightfall was a sustained rumbling coming from the vending machine / washer-dryer / ice machine room on the other side of the wall. We thought the noise came from the ice machine and asked the managers to do something about it. They finally turned it off at 10:45 pm. But the rumbling continued. It turned out to be a large fan in the wall that apparently had something to do with the ventilation system. Management said they had no other room to offer us so we had a fitful night despite earplugs.
We spoke to the manager the next day and she offered to take $50 off the bill. Blue Sea Lodge may be a fine place to stay, as other reviewers have said. Just don't let them put you in room 123.
