Stayed here over 4th July weekend during our 3 week stay in the US. This was our favourite hotel, and we'd stayed in a few. It is in a great location close to Little Italy and the waterfront. The staff were very friendly and always willing to help. Our room was clean, tidy and well presented. We especially liked the... More

While it is a bit pricey for me, I realize the view and location is probably the reason. Good nights sleep for days of stay; very convenient to many attractions. But you'll need a car to see the out-of-town sights such as the Zoo and Safari Park; but the tram system could be your option. Do not miss the Gas... More

I stayed at Best Western Bayside Inn for 3 nights in August 2014. There is a complimentary shuttle to and from the airport. The rooms were clean and was in a great location to walk to little Italy or Galamps Quarter. If you don't have a car, the Trolley is a 5 minute walk from the hotel.

Easy to get to from Interstate. Very good location for the front. Parking charge was reasonable and very useful. Good Amenities. The free full Breakfast was excellent and was one of the main reasons we booked this hotel as it gives you a good start to the day and saves having to find a place to eat in the morning... More

Located walking distance to Little Italy and only a couple of blocks to the Trolley, you can get anywhere you might like to go. This area is much quieter than the gas lamp district, has a fair restaurant, breakfast is included and the facility is clean, neat, and has a microwave and refrigerator for your left overs!

Everything we needed and good standard of cleanliness and service, no problems at all. Pool is a hole in the ground but fine for kids. Location is excellent, close to Little Italy which has numerous great restaurants and close to the harbor and great park for kids with fountains.

Stayed here for just the weekend - one of the nice things about this hotel is that they have an actual restaurant and in the morning they give you a voucher to eat there!!! So a little more room than just your normal smaller eating areas that other places offer. It is well kept up and the rooms have microwaves... More

We stayed four nights at the Bayside Inn, an excellent downtown location, close to Little Italy for great selection of places to eat, and a few minutes walk from the Embarcadero. Spacious room on the 8th floor with balcony views to Star of India ship by the Maritime Museum. Extensive buffet breakfast in the hotel's adjacent restaurant. Highly recommend this... More
