On Government business for 11 days working night shift. TV broken for first three days. Reported issue, nothing done.

A winner. A bit pricey but worth it. Great room, great view, friendly staff. No disappointments here. Good shower, clean n good size room & bathrrom and well appointed decor. Very comfy beds. Room overlooked marina. Bottom line, a good place to stay for business or pleasure. This is the what we all would like in a hotel.

We decided to stay here over a weekend because it was central to Aquatica and Sea World and we usually have good experiences at Holiday Inns. We arrived late on a Friday and the lobby is very modern and nice..the front desk lady was just ok.Maybe too long of a day? We chose a 4th floor room and it was... More

Frist of all when I booked the hotel, I wasn't expecting much to be honest. This Holiday Inn is CLEAN. The lobby looks fabulous, it didn't feel like the old school Holiday Inn. So next I slipped around the bar and pool area again not like the Old School Holiday Inn. I was in walking distance of the marina (... More

The hotel is by far one of the cleanest ones that I stayed in. Not only was the room clean the time I checked in, but room service was pretty solid for the few nights I was there. Bayside Bar was a perfect spot to grab a late night meal. The Shepherds Pie was tasty, and I felt bad that... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn San Diego Bayside for Comic Con. We were not sure how it was going to work out because we really wanted to stay walking distance to the convention center. But it turned out to be quite convenient and their free shuttle service to and from the convention center was extremely helpful. The rooms are... More

We stayed at this property due to it's proximity to the airport. We had a week at a beach location, but a VERY early flight on a Monday morning, so we chose to get rid of our rental car and stay close to SAN. This hotel provided what we needed; great location, free shuttle, ease to surrounding restaurants. The lobby... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and totally enjoyed this hotel. The front desk staff were so friendly and accommodating and could not do enough for my wife and I. We stayed in the new building on the fourth floor over looking the bay and marina. Our room was large and clean with a king bed (very comfortable), lounge chair, desk... More

I think this was probably the least desirable hotel for the money I have ever stayed at. Hotels near the airport do run on the expensive side, but for $220/night I would expect a clean room. This hotel has several sections to it. Some are older than others. We, unfortunately, got Building #C, one of the older wings. The AC... More
