“Nice hotel in a great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Staff are very helpful and were very accommodating when we asked to change rooms to overlook the beach.Hotel is popular for weddings so quite busy at weekends but not to detriment of other guests. Free boat trip is a nice touch. Plenty of equipment to hire on the beach. Rooms are spacious with good facilities. Lovely location and was a good base to explore rest of San Diego but a car is needed.

Room Tip: Overlooking the private beach are best.

We stayed in Bahia resort, lovely resort but a bit tired looking. We had a suite close to pool,facilities where excellent but def need a car. Beautiful beach and numerous things to do along beach. Food ok a resort though not many restaurant about. Staff very helpful. Loved the board walk. Plan to go back to San Diego and if we had a car would def stay in Bahia but would ask for king size beds

Room Tip: Ask for beach view avoid the block at entrance as can be quite noisy as it has entertainment facili...

My husband and two children had a great time at the Bahia. The view on Mission Bay was so relaxing and we were within walking distance from Belmont Park and other local attractions. The resort has a pool and tennis court. The kids loved the seal pool. The room was fine and the staff were extremely accomodating.

Booked using AAA...rooms were very reasonable. Great location with tons of things to do at the hotel as well as in and around San Diego. There are "tower" rooms and bungalows. The one bedroom queen bungalow included a living room and kitchenette.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We stayed here for 3 nights.At check in we were given a room overlooking the reception area. It was so noisey and had no view at all so we asked to be moved. We were than given a much better room with a great view of the bay.We did experience noise all night from the air con unit for the next door room but at least we had gained a view! Staff all very friendly and helpful.The hotel is in a great position for the beach and for long walks on the boardwalk which we enjoyed very much. However it does need some TLC and an upgrade.
We had a car so went to see the US Midway which was very good indeed. We also visited Old Town and had lunch on the Cosmopolitan Hotel. The margerita was the best i have ever had. Fantastic.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view!

We stayed here the first part of September for two nights. Our room overlooked the Bay and it was absolutely beautiful! We stayed in a suite which includes a small kitchen, it was perfectly stocked and everything was very clean! The staff was very friendly and helpful from check in to check out. It is a great location as you are close to many of the sights in San Diego as well as public transportation if needed. The best deal of all is that parking is free unlike downtown where the fee is quite high. A very relaxing and enjoyable weekend......the food was good too!

Stayed here for three nights earlier this month. It is probably a great place for a family vacation if you have a car, but if you flew to San Diego for business and this hotel is where the conference is being held, be prepared to spend a lot of money on cab fare. Unfortunately the weather was bad during my stay, which is not the hotel's fault, but it didn't help. My room was nicely appointed, and had obviously been recently updated. No water view, unless you count the duck pond. One hint to hotel management -install more locks or those guard things on the doors. My door was right on the parking lot, and had only a deadbolt. I ended up putting a chair under the door knob every night. I do want to commend the front desk staff, who were friendly, courteous and accommodating.
