We stayed two nights. Like the location quite a bit as it is a few blocks away from the San Diego Bay. The all-balcony hotel was great with the nice marine breeze. We placed our room chairs on the balcony and enjoyed an excellent sunset. Front desk staff is friendly and helpful. Plenty of great dining options within rock-throwing distance... More

Lovely, clean hotel, very good breakfast. The hotel is close to the harbor and train station. Hotel staff was very helpful and gave information about things to do. I would stay there again. I only wish there was a full supermarket nearby but there was a Rite Aid and 7-11 .

Our room's bathtub would not drain. It took over an hour for someone to come look at it. While they tried to figure out how to fix the problem, my family and I would have to leave the room for an hour or switch rooms. We agreed to switch rooms. 2 hours later we were able to take showers and... More

I stayed in the BW Bayside for 5 nights from May 29-June 3rd this year with my Mum and friend. I had emailed the hotel prior to arrival requesting a high floor room and harbour view.

We were very pleased with the entire experience. With the competitive room rate along with the quality complimentary breakfast and lower parking fee compared to nearby hotels, we felt like we got a good deal. The floor we were on was very quiet.

This was a great location, and you could walk anywhere in downtown San Diego from here. I also thought it was a great value! The price was right and even included free breakfast. Only one of the two elevators was working which caused a wait. However, it was a weekend visit and workers were there Monday morning to fix it.

The room was nice with a slightly obstructed view of the bay. I was not impressed with the breakfast or that the parking garage was not connected to the hotel. I have stayed at many Best Western's and expect more, especially of the "PLUS" designation. We pay more, therefore we expect more.
