Reception was friendly. Room modern, clean, with comfortable beds. There should be assistance available to transport from reception check-in to rooms. Way too far to walk with all our suitcases. We used the shuttle from airport and James was excellent and made sure we got to our rooms; above and beyond because reception just said we were on our own...

The staff was excellent got me checked in early. My room was clean and modern. The restaurant was closed but ate at the bar outside since the weather was nice. Overall I had a great experience and I would stay here again.

Lovely, convenient, comfortable, affordable choice for us. Ask for main building, the newest addition to the campus of 4 or 5 buildings on the property. Convenient shuttle to and from airport. Restaurant choices abound within walking distance too.

We found this hotel was in the perfect location for travellers with a vehicle. There is a $10 per night parking fee which we felt was a bit steep but we're advised that is cheap for this city. This hotel had everything you need for a great stay including a laundry, pool, jaccuzi and gift shop which also sells alcohol...

Great location, twin rooms for 5 people on western side of building. The air conditioner did not function as well as it should. If the fixed windows could have been able to open for some outside fresh air it would have made a difference. Location was great with a pool to relax as needed.

Huge establissment - impersonal. Paid parking. After unloading our bags and going to reception for check-in, had to go back to the car and reload bags as room at the other end of the facility - not for the weary business travaler. Only staff we saw was at reception - they were fridendly and helpful and offered a complementary breakfast....

We have stayed at the Holiday Inn Bayside many times before taking cruises. Always clean, great staff and Anthony's Sea Food Grotto across the street. Large rooms as well. The shuttle drivers went the extra mile for us! Would return again!

Affordable nightly parking at $10. Easy access to SD airport and restaurants. Room is clean and well maintained. Window treatments are a tad old and falling off the sliders in suite which is unexpected in upgrade room.

This hotel is ideally located, with the airport just down the road, restaurants and marina across the road, and a delicious coffee shop just a short walk away (Better Buzz Coffee). There's also a Cafe Loma located on site, but we waited 45 minutes to be seated after we were somehow forgotten and then ended up leaving due to a...

Stayed here with my family for my son's graduation from Marine Corps boot camp at MCRD San Diego. The shuttle to and from the airport was easy to find and right on time.
