Good, clean hotel, with some nice amenities like cruising bikes to borrow, a nicely appointed fitness center, free wifi, a mini-fridge in the room, and a free shuttle. Very close to the airport, but not a lot of airplane noise. Comfortable beds with two pillow firmness levels. The room was well-serviced each day. The pool area is pleasant, but the... More

Our room was in the small, middle block- it might be where they put the people who use Priceline's Name Your Price and get a cheaper deal, like we did. It did NOT seem on par with the rest of the property. The room (206) smelled like a kitty litter box, despite it being a non- smoking room. The air... More

Nicely located near the airport and most of San Diego's most popular attractions, we chose to stay at the Bayside Holiday Inn in 2013 during Spring Break. We returned in 2014 and then most recently stayed again while dropping our daughter at college. The small rooms are clean, typical Holiday Inn fare. The older building could use a refresh but...

Stayed here for 6 nights recently; on arrival they saw we had kids so changed our room to a family room, with separate bunk beds for the kids, which worked really well for us. The room was clean and comfortable, if a tad small, but suited our needs well. The hotel is not in the centre of town but by... More

We booked the Holiday Inn-Bayside for two nights but had to cancel one night at the last minute. They were very gracious about it despite the fact they had a full house. We arrived the next night and admittedly, we picked the hotel for the free airport shuttle (five minute ride to the terminal) because we had to leave at... More
