Just returned from 3 days at the Bayside; was there for conference, so decided to stay for convenience. Room was on 3rd floor above conference floors; it was very clean and comfortable, altho the entryway and bathroom areas were abit cramped. Restaurant on premises was abit pricey, but because there is nothing very close by, you are a 'captive audience'. Food was pretty good; as part of Holiday Inn's "Rewards"-type program, I received a $20 off breakfast (per day) coupon, which came in very handy! Pizza Nova across the street was tasty; try their lunch special (pizza or pasta and a salad). Otherwise, can be abit pricey, but beautiful view of the marina. Further up a block, is Point Loma Seafood. The most beautiful fresh fish I have ever seen! They have a 'sushi bar' which will make some selections for you to enjoy on the patio, plus they have seafood to order to takeout. Nothing fancy, but it was packed at lunch! They have fish, clams, shrimp, crab, calamari, etc., of which you can have in a sandwich, on a platter, in a salad, or in a taco, with sides of fried, onion rings, cole slaw, etc. Had the Boston chowder in a breadbowl for lunch, then walked back for a calamari plate dinner. Fresh, tender calamari strips were delicious! And, for less than $9.00, a great deal! Had I known this was so close, I would have come the previous day and tried more on the menu. They also have smoked fish that you can have on a sandwich or buy to take with you. We heard the line is out the parking lot at lunchtime and I believe it! Well worth the trip tho, IMO. Propertywise, the Bayside is finishing up some upgrades; i didn't see/use the pool or putting green. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Pluses? Free shuttle to airport, $20 off breakfast (Rewards club perk), great staff. Minuses? Pricey coffee shop on premises, rooms abit small. Would I return? Yes, but I would checkout their sister property nearby at Humphrey's.
