Great location near the waterfront and Little Italy. A few minutes walk to the hop-on hop-off trolley stop. Room was comfortable and the included hot breakfast was quite decent. Got a pretty good government rate. Would not hesitate to come back.

First let me tell you the great points of staying at this property. Clean rooms, great location for cruise boarding, excellent shuttle service and free breakfast. I was happy with this hotel, the neighborhood was a little spooky at night but it was close to Little Italy so there were lots of restaurants and there was a Rite-Aid close by... More

We chose The Best Western Bayside in San Diego because of it's reviews on Trip Advisor saying it was close to everything. It is in Little Italy and it is close to quite a few places, the harbour, USS Midway but other than that there is no reason whatsoever to stay there. We were lucky to get our room early... More

We loved the location of this hotel-so close to Little Italy and the tourist attractions on the Bay. We were able to walk to the trolley station, too, and use the trolley or bus to see everything else that we wanted to see. They also have a free breakfast buffet.

Loved our stay at this hotel. The room was large and it had a microwave and a refrigerator. The location was right near Little Italy so there were plenty of eating options. It was only a short walk to the harbour, shopping centre, Gaslamp Quarter and trolley stops. The pool was nice and seldom used by the guests. We found... More

Clean rooms with all the amenities you need. Coffee, microwave, fridge in the room. Great view of the San Diego Bay from our room. Beds are comfy and lots of pillows. The restaurant is large and the breakfast buffet is included. Really good value and walking distance to everything. Only 3 blocks from the waterfront and the USS Midway. Hotel... More

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a tour. The hotel is clean, well located and offered us a good breakfast. The staff were friendly and we would recommend this hotel for anyone wanting a value for money city centre hotel. Tip: Petrinis Italian restaurant opposite does good food at a reasonable price.

We stayed for 2 nights and would love to go back. We were travelling with a tour and on arrival the hotel served us with a drink and fresh fruit and cheese and biscuits. I thought this was a lovely touch. We had breakfast each morning and got plenty. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were clean and... More

Put in a lovely room on 14th floor overlooking 'Star of India' sailing ship. Close to Little Italy and some good restaurants. Clean, quiet hotel with nice rooms. Breakfast was quite good but would have liked more fruit available. Overall a good, value for money hotel.

The hotel has a great location. You are two blocks from the bay, couple of blocks to Little Italy, close to downtown, and walking distance to Amtrak/trolley station. We had an upper floor with a city view. There is a small walk out balcony. We had a King room that was huge. Very comfortable bed. Room was clean and quiet.... More
