A great hotel in a wonderful location. Support and wait staff were kind, friendly, and helpful. The restaurant on site was superb. My wife and I came to San Diego to join a reunion of the Navy ship I served aboard during the Vietnam Conflict. The hotel provided tremendous support for all attendees!

Stayed for 1 night during a recent trip in the San Diego area. It was my first time in the hotel and I must say a very pleasant surprise. The hotel is conveniently located in the Bay area and close to the airport (about 5 minutes). Also there are multiple restaurants located closeby (either walking distance or by car). The... More

Stayed here before and after a cage diving trip to Guadalupe island. The location across from the harbor was great! Everything went absolutely smoothly with this hotel. The hotel itself is a little unusual. They have the old hotel building. A separate build for the restaurant and bar area and then the new building where there was main lobby/check in.... More

We have stayed at the Holiday Inn Bayside before and originally chose the hotel based on location but were pleasantly surprised to see the new tower and some of the improvements they have made around the property. We stayed in a garden room with a lanai. At first we were slightly concerned with the “motel” feel of the garden rooms... More

It has been a few years since I last stayed at the Bayside and since then they have built a new 4 story wing and are currently remodeling their older towers. I reserved a poolside room but was upgraded to the new tower since I was an IGA member. I was very surprised and very happy they did this. Also... More

The location is great. Two miles from the airport, two miles from SeaWorld, and about four miles the zoo. I' an IHG rewards member so on check-in we were upgraded to the new building, which is very nice. Unfortunately for us we were close to the HVAC systems which was a little noisy.

We are IHG reward members, so we were upgraded to the new part of the hotel which is amazing. It still has new hotel smell! The rooms were comfy and beautiful.

We were visiting friends, but wanted to stay in a local hotel. It is very easy to get to from the airport, but there isn't a whole lot in walking distance- far enough from gas lamp quarters, but short cab or uber ride.
