We spent the night at the Holiday Inn Bayside on our way to Hawaii the following day. We were given the worst room in the entire hotel, with noisy traffic and glaring streetlights outside our window. It was part of the original structure with only 4 rooms on the street side. This hotel is huge with many rooms, and I... More

Great hotel, clean and comfortable with excellent customer service! Hotel was very close to the airport. I enjoyed a great sleep in the newly renovated room with comfortable beds, had great pillows. Having a fridge in the room was a plus!

Bayside view room consisted of pool view and facing the bay. We also got to view the tops of the boat masts. Don't pay the extra fees. Complimentary breakfast also felt like a scam. They direct you to their restaurant to get a danish, coffee and juice or of course you could buy a full on breakfast. Rooms were dated,... More

My apologies for the poor room accomodations that you experienced during your stay. I can assure you this is not typical of the Holiday Inn Bayside. I am glad that you find the room very quiet...

Spent one night at the Holiday Inn Bayside on my way to another city. Found the property to be very convenient and nicely appointed. I was given a newly renovated room and it was quite nice. Very comfortable bed and spacious bath with good amenities. Had to leave too early to enjoy breakfast. Did have a beer at the bar... More

We were spending a week for spring break in San Diego and stayed at the Holiday Inn Bayside. It's pretty convenient to Point Loma and the marina. There is a restaurant on site but the food and service is only marginal. We stayed in a two room suite and had a grand time. The front desk was always helpful with... More

Stayed at the Holiday Inn for two nights for a business meeting in San Diego. Our suite on the 4th floor in the newest building was great, so request room #4501. You won't be disappointed. Located at the harbor and really close to the airport. Free parking.

Stayed at the Holiday Inn-Bayside for a week during the beginning of March. Great property with a location that makes it an easy ride, or even walk, to other establishments in the area. Room was very clean, and the staff bent over backward to make our stay (even though for business) the most enjoyable. The restaurant on property serves great... More

I had my wedding in San Diego and this was the best spot. The hotel itself is nice the parking is a little crazy. From a proximity standpoint it is perfect for commute to airport for people who are not familiar with area....access to downtown is minutes away without getting on an extremely busy freeway for visitors. Also directly across... More

We came to this Hotel after escaping from a very bad Hotel in San Diego. The lobby is impressive and the rooms are big, clean and well equipped. The spa and pool is under reconstruction and the Hotel offered us to have free shuttle to there sister Hotel Humphrys Half Moon. This was a very nice gesture and we enjoyed... More
