I had an overnight prior to a cruise. One tip - when you arrive at the airport, ask for the information desk staff to call the hotel to get a shuttle pickup. The balconies are nice, and you can watch planes landing at the airport and also see the harbor. Staff were helpful. I checked in my bags since I... More

Near the trolley and Amtrak. Easy trolley ride or even walk to to Convention Center. Shuttle to airport. LOTS of excellent food options in wide price range. Especially good is a kabob place--not fancy but GREAT food. Rooms fine. Breakfast pretty good.

We were looking for a reasonably priced family hotel for two adults and two kids with low cost parking rates and free breakfast. The Bayside Inn seemed to tick the boxes. The hotel was easy to find but the parking garage took a bit of time and we had to ask the hotel. Although I am a Best Western Silver... More

Broken TV remote and hair dryer. Very outdated and dirty carpet and furniture. Curtains were even spotted with stains of some sort. TV channels were too limited. The one free breakfast that I ate was pretty tasteless, so I purchased food at other restaurants. All in all....hotel and restaurant need to be totally renovated. Staff was nice.

Excellent location in downtown San Diego. Walking distance to major shopping centers, popular Gaslamp District, SD tourist attractions, Amtrak station; 15 minutes drive to airport. Not the most updated rooms (in terms of renovations), but hotel is clean and quiet and offers a hot breakfast. Great value! Would definitely stay again the next time I pass through SD!
