Best Western Plus Bayside Inn

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Great location (close to bus stops and the train), clean rooms, large bathroom with nice counter space. Staff was very friendly, only issue was being miss-informed by them about an event that didn't even exist - not impressed.

Room Tip: Room far away from elevator was nice and quiet

We stayed at the Best Western Bayside Inn in San Diego, CA. A decent hotel and the room was adequate- comfortable mattress. The pool and hot tub were decent, but not out in the sun at all. There was no place to hang around and talk, there was no lobby to speak of. But, I'm sure that property is expensive there and that they did the best they could. Really close to the harbor, train station, etc., a really easy way to go car-free and only use mass transit and walking to get around. We almost always have a great experience at Best Western - thanks!

The BW Bayside inn in Sand Diego provided very good value,location, and hospitality. Very nice rooms, friendly and helpful staff, and nice selection of breakfast items. Each night of our stay we were within walking distance of a quality restaurant. The wharf was also within walking distance where we were able to take a cruise of the harbor, take the Old Town Trolley, and see the various ships at the museum. Staff was always very helpful in helping us plan our daily activities .

My wife and I used the Best Western PLUS Bayside Inn primarily as home away from home. He prefer the San Diego Airport to one closer to us so we go to San Diego a day earlier, stay at the Best Western and their shuttle takes us to the airport. On our return we repeat that with their picking us up at the airport, spending a night or two at Best Western and then either taking the train home, which works great, since the hotel is just three blocks from the train station. Of course San Diego is one of the best destination cities in the world. The zoo is world class!

We recently stayed here on vacation with our two teens. Front desk staff friendly and moderately helpful. Free shuttle to and from airport. Room was large and clean. We had a mini fridge and microwave. there was free wifi which worked well. There is a free breakfast buffet that was better than most of these types. Reasonable selection. The breakfast is served in a restaurant next door. Staff there were nice. Location is very convenient to the waterfront, little Italy and Gaslamp areas. We felt safe and walked everywhere.

This hotel was very clean, had all the necessary room amenities and the bed and pillow were super comfy. In addition to a great view of the harbor from balcony rooms, it had one of the lowest parking fees at $14/night. However, the room soundproofing was not good as I could hear normal conversation from the adjoining room and inconsiderate guests from a lower balconies at 4 AM. Breakfast(included) wasn't anything to rave about and the dining room requires a trip outside but all in all a very nice stay. Close to Gaslamp District and Little Italy.

I will be checking out in the morning. This BW was impressive and nearly perfect. The one negative is the typical BW breakfast. Had it once and the other three mornings we went elsewhere. Our room was great, everything worked well, the TV and theWiFi. Why can't all BW Plus hotels be like this one? I have had so many bad experiences at BW that Just when I am ready to give up my faith in BW is restored by a place like this. One caveat expect to pay 14 dollars to park in the adjacent multi level garage. I will definitely return to this hotel.
