I loved the hotel. Although the room were a bit smaller than what I am used to in the Dallas area, the room was comfortable. The decor was pleasant. Plenty of towels and toiletries. There was a coffee pot. No refrigerator. The view of the harbor was spectacular. The hotel even has an outside-facing elevator for guests to enjoy the... More

I'm typing this at five a.m. in the room because I can't sleep. So here are the things that bothered me at this hotel - Building C second floor pool view. Con- The hallway and balcony carpet needs to go because it stinks, it's old and it smells like smoke for a non-smoking building. The a/c vent smells like smoke... More

I chose this hotel for a short 4 night stay. A courtesy bus is provided for transportation from / to the airport to the hotel. We phoned the hotel after leaving immigration and the bus arrived 10 minutes later. We arrived at 8pm and checked in by a very pleasant guy. He was very knowledgeable and gave us loads of... More

I was a bit nervous booking our family of 5 into this hotel after reading some of the reviews. I can tell you that this hotel is quite good - to give you some perspective, I have been both a Priority Club Platinum Member and Hilton Honors Gold Member for the past 12 years - I stay at a lot... More

Unfortunately I would not book this hotel again due to Building 2. I received this hotel as a recommendation only to find out the individual who recommended is always booked in the main building. We stayed 3 nights, key card didn't work for the 2nd night and had to wait for security to let us in and bring new keys... More

This hotel is conveniently located across the street from the marina where all of the fishing boats launch so it worked out perfectly for before and after a long range trip. The hotel has a new building that is clean, safe and within a short walking distance from virtually everything you need to access and central to the airport, downtown... More

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...
