Stayed here for 3 nights in November 2012 whilst on holiday in California.

The rooms were spacious and clean and even had a little balcony which you could sit out on. Breakfast was good and had lots of options.

The only downside was the fact that the restaurant and bar were not open at the weekend. I found this very strange as surely this is peak time. If I had checked the website properly before booking I probably would have booked somewhere else.

Other than that it did the job, somewhere to sleep and to be fair we didn't spend a lot of time at the hotel so it wasn't the end of the world.

This was our first time staying in San Diego and at the Best Western Bayside Inn. We stayed only one night, and we enjoyed it!! Our 12th floor bayside view was amazing. The reception staff were friendly, and efficient at check-in. it took us less than 15 minutes to get our room key and make our self's comfortable after a long day at the San Diego Zoo! (9 minutes away) There Continental breakfast is decent with various choices. my son loved the cereal selection. Will definitely stay here again! Little Italy is 2 blocks walking distance!
Thanks Best Western Bayside Inn :)

The hotel location nice. But again the internet service below the expectation as well as the TV service. The lobby looks too small and old. No laundry self service . The bathroom too small. price too too high for this kind of hotel.

I wasn't sure whether this hotel would stack up....but it did! I was very pleasantly surprised! First - the location cannot be beat! Walking distance to the harbour, Little Italy, the Trolley....really a SUBERB spot considering the price! Second - the room was nice, with a balcony overlooking the harbour! Wayyyyyyyyy cool! Beds, good, comfortable! Breakfast included and plentiful! FREE shuttle to the airport....didn't need a car!

The front desk was efficient and friendly. There was a computer for access and printing out our boarding passes, and a locked room for our luggage to be stored.

I couldn't believe this was a BW! Loved it!

Room Tip: Ask for a harbour view!

BW Bayside is an economical choice for downtown San Diego that you don't have to worry about. Other family stayed at Inn at the Park to be close to Balboa, and altho nice, we were glad to be closer to mass transit and Gaslamp, and our room seemed just as posh. Short walk to Santa Fe trolley station (and train if you are going upstate) which made coming home from Old Town dinner a breeze. Other family said there were young people tour on their floor which was a mess, but our floor was quiet. I'd recommend just indicating in Message part of reservation PLS. PUT US ON QUIET FLOOR. We travel alot and this hotel was on top of continuum for pleasant and comfortable.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks for our first ever visit to San
Diego. Our room (#605) was comfortable and quiet and had everything we needed including strong wi-fi. The staff were all very professional. The breakfast was more than adequate and was a good start to the day. We liked the location, just a short walk to Little Italy and the waterfront and easy access to the Trolley which, together with the busses, got us everywhere (we were car-less).
We feel we had it all: nice hotel, great location and wonderful weather in a lovely city. We will be back for another holiday and will stay at the Best Western Plus Bayside again. I feel no need to search for another hotel for our next visit.
