This was a great hotel with spacious rooms and great amenities. Shuttle service and attendants were very helpful and friendly and attentive. Location is within short walk to restaurants on site and across the road. I would definitely chose this hotel for next visits to San Diego.

This was my first stay at this hotel and as a Platinum Member they upgraded me to the main building which is relatively new. The room was nice, open and airy. I didn't like the phone being bedside and not a phone on the desk, but that's minor. The lobby is nice and the staff is mostly friendly, depending on... More

I first stayed here in 1989 and it has been a favorite of mine since. Great view and recently updated. I always have dinner at Anthony's Fish Grotto right near the hotel, another old favorite. The staff at the hotel is always friendly and accommodating. I'm sure there are many other nice hotels nearby but I have never been disappointed... More

First I will say that this is a very nicely recently remodeled and addition added location. The new side is very nice and the rooms are great. The location is excellent if you are flying out of the airport and/or planning to visit the down town area. Staff is friendly and the on site restrurant is very good. All in... More

We stayed here at the Bayside for 4 nights 3/20-3/24. We booked a room in the newest building, I think they were called Executive rooms. This building had just opened in 2013, so needless to say it still had that nice new construction smell! It was nice to have a clean room and large enough for our family of 4!... More

We stayed at the HI-Bayside for three nights. Our boys, 9 and 13, loved the on-site amenities. They spent many hours playing shuffleboard, live grass putt-putt, and ping pong. It was a little chilly for the pool, but they checked it out as well. The grounds are beautifully manicured and spotless. We opted for the kids' suite "Zoo Room," but... More

I travel last minute to San Diego a lot for work and the Holiday Inn Bayside always accommodates me very well (even not being IHG platinum). First and foremost this hotel is always easy on the expense report. While most other hotels in the SD area change their rates depending on the season, H I Bayside is always consistent. Best... More

I was visiting a client on Point Loma and the hotel was very convenient. My husband arrived a day later while I was at work and did not receive good instructions on how to find our room (his name was on the reservation and they did give him a key). Our room had doors on both sides for adjoining rooms.... More

I followed my husband on a conference trip to San Diego and we stayed at the Holiday Inn San Diego. It is a beautiful old resort that has been maintained meticulously. I tend to be quite picky about hotel rooms and this room was well decorated and clean. We stayed on the second floor in the main building in beachfront... More
