We stayed for a few days here for the second time. After going into the main lobby you think wow what a place. New lobby looks fantastic. Great job guys. We were placed in the old section with our first room smelling like a smoker had lived in it. We changed rooms and was placed next to the elevator. Bad... More

I checked into the Holiday Inn Bayside on May 14th on a stormy night in San Diego. The staff there was OUTSTANDING, I work for IHG and I know how difficult it is to straisfy certain types of people and I am one of them. I am very particular when it comes to everything but I have nothing but nice... More

Firstly the hotel needs to figure out whether they want to be a resort or a transient hotel. There are 3 buildings one new, one maybe 5-7 yrs old, and then the pre 1970 building (which i said In)!! However being on business they seem to have the last option only available for govt. travellers which at $142.00 per night... More

I must say that this hotel exceeded our expectations. Literally just 8 minutes to Mission Beach. Same length of time to Downtown San Diego. It wouldn't take much in my opinion to boost this rating up one more notch. I feel there are a few things that should be noted. The bed that we were sleeping on was comfortable but... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn for two nights towards the end of our USA trip. Upon arrival, we were delayed at check-in as the room had not been cleaned.The location was OK (close to Sea World) and room was clean/ well presented, however we endured sleepless nights as a result of poor soundproofing and inconsiderate guests. On our second... More

This hotel was rated with a nice view of the San Diego bay and was on the higher side; the view was of partial pool and mostly a roof of a cabana. It was a walk up to the second floor, no elevator with all of your luggage. There was a musty stale smell when entered into the room. The... More

Stayed at the Holiday Inn for two nights at the end of our tour of California. The location was ok but it was a taxi or bus ride away from the main amenities. Staff were very friendly and polite. The restaurant and the food were good. Beds and rooms were very clean and comfortable. Enjoyed our stay there.

This was a great place to be away from the hub-bub of the city. Although it was not close to the city center there were many great places to eat near by. It was fun to be by the harbor where fishing excursions left and returned.

If you're in the market for a hotel room near the airport, and dining options nearby, the Holiday Inn Bayside is just the place. Room rates are comparable. Modern (request the highrise), clean. Staff is friendly and helpful. Made use of their workout room! Enough to get in a full workout. Hotel cafe menu offerings enough to satisfy any dietary... More

The cool thing is that if you are taking a cruise to or from San Diego its "RIGHT" across the street from the cruise ship terminal. Even though their is a free shuttle to the hotel, just walk its FASTER. Get off the cruise ship, check in and quickly unpack, and enjoy San Diego at this bay front hotel. Also,... More
