Never being to San Diego before, we knew nothing about where to stay. After looking at several sites, I narrowed it down to a few places. Then I went to Trip Advisor to read the reviews. We decided on the Holiday Inn Bayside. Of course, we would be there 6 nights so I knew we could move if we were not happy. We decided to use public transportation since we didn't know our way around. The bus stop is only 2 blocks from the hotel. Also within walking distance is a Winchell's Donuts, Denny's, McDonald's, Der Wienerschnitzel, and Pizza Nova. There is also a KFC - but I would not recommend it (it was dirty and they seemed to not know what they were doing). There is also a nice restaurant at the hotel, Point Loma Cafe. The hotel offers complimentary airport transportation and wi-fi as well as a pool and hot tub. The room itself was comfortable and the pillows were great. The room was clean and there were plenty of towels and our room had a huge window with a nice view. The kids enjoyed the 9 hole put-put course and the ping-pong table (free to guests). There is also a business center with 2 computers with printers available for guest use. The staff were all very friendly. All in all, I would certainly recommend this hotel. We were only 4-5 miles from Mission Beach, Sea World, Liberty Station and Old Town. If we go back to San Diego, I will stay here again!
