After trying (unsuccessfully) to get from Atlanta to Los Angeles, we ended up in San Diego with no place to stay. It was late and we were tired. After calling many hotels, we finally found one room left at this hotel. The room was called the Zoo Room. It had one queen bed and a set of bunk beds, with... More

We stayed two nights at this hotel in a room the front desk agent called "our cheap rooms" and that was a pretty accurate description. This property is a combination of a new building and the "cheap rooms" and we had the latter for two nights. Rooms are expensive here and the only good thing about our room was a... More

There are so many hotels in San Diego it became a little overwhelming! We were only in San Diego with our kids for 2 nights but so glad we had reserved a room at this Holiday Inn. The price was a great value we felt. Our experience was that the property as a whole was well maintained and the staff... More

Upon arrival they informed us that they upgraded 1 of the rooms which was awesome. They told us kids under 12 eat free and we used the pool til after the posted closing time and no one... More

I booked this quickly at the last minute and should have done more homework. The property is spread across three separate buildings but the online listing shows a picture of a nice updated Holiday inn facility, which does exist but not necessarily what you will get. I booked a room that was labeled "economy" but still about 200 bucks. Well... More

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Bayside for 5 nights to attend a conference in San Diego. Holiday Inn Bayside is a bit out of the way, so taxi to about 13 USD was required every time we wanted to go to the Convention Center or to a restaurant in the Gaslamp district. On the other hand, it is convenient... More

Ok, by no means is the high end hotel, but it is a clean hotel with basic amenities. It has an outdoor pool hot tub. The bar puts out appetizers daily at 5pm. The restaurant inside the hotel is reasonably priced, and if you don't want to eat there, you can walk across the street or around the block to... More

We stayed here for our San Diego Trip. The hotel is nice, great bar and pool/lounge area. Rooms are clean. Great restaurants across the street. We walked the harbor area and walked across the street at night for pizza!

I stayed here when I came to visit my son at Camp Pendleton. It is located overlooking the harbor and only a mile from the airport. The shuttle driver gave a very nice first impression for the hotel. Very friendly and informative. The front desk welcomed us with smiles. We stayed in the older portion of the hotel and there... More
