“All in ! Positively surprised”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014 via mobile

Pro: good location ( next to nice little italy and harbor promenade and 20 min walk to gaslamp ) . Free airport shuttle . Friendly and accomodating staff . Even though hotel is not new everything was in perfect working order and condition .Very clean. We asked and were granted a harbour view room on the top floor ( 14 th floor) .continental breakfast over the average.
Cons: u might hear aircraft and railway crossing signal starting at 4 am ( we got used after the first night). Beware of floors with noisy ice maker ( i.e. 12-9-6-3)

Stayed February 2014, traveled as a couple

Would definietlt stay there again.

Room Tip: Do not overlook this one. A little price but worth it !!!

This is a very nice hotel just a few paces from Little Italy and a few minutes from the cruise terminal. The front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and quiet, breakfast is very nice and the restaurant is clean and airy. Can't find anything to criticize!!! Would definitely stay again if I return to San Diego.

Room Tip: Ask for the side facing the water. Nice view if you are high up and in the center of the building...

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!
