Friendly and helpful front desk staff. Room very large and spacious. Pretty quiet. Furniture in room needs updating - chipped and cracked. Beds comfy. Breakfast buffet good. Location good - walking distance from train station and attractions on the water.

Perfect Location, three blocks from he water front and just a couple from Little Italy. Great View from our room. Rates are reasonable and the Staff is Great. Only one complaint. The ACs in the room run from the Hotel's main chiller and when the outside temp drops below 55 the chiller shuts down forcing you to open a window...

Rooms were modern and clean. Bar and restaurant situated outside/next door to reception. Hotel is adjacent to the Italian Quarter hence may places to eat well and drink close by. Staff very helpful. Breakfast was good but bar was closed at the weekends. Would stay here again though

I enjoyed my brief stay here which as close to local drug store, shopping mall and Little Italy. The staff was extremely kind and helpful. I appreciated the free airport shuttle in a new van. Although an unassuming curb appeal- plenty of room and space inside.

room is clean and staff is very helpful. The airport shuttle service is great. The only thing can be improved is the variety of breakfast. We stayed there for three nights, the breakfast is almost the same choices everyday.

Early check in on Thanksgiving day after a great Panama Canal cruise. Bayside Inn was a great site for sore travelers. I have stayed here times before and always find it very clean and friendly staff. Located close to the Harbor and other great places to see.

Don't expect food or drink to be available on the weekend. Even though they say they have the services available. Shuttle service is slow and the driver was sulky. I'm very disappointed in BW. All they said was "sorry".

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Best Western Plus Bayside Inn is located in the heart of downtown San Diego, perfect for site seeing or business trips. Our proximity to Little Italy offers guests easy access to amazing dining and breweries from award winning chefs. Guests can easily walk to shopping and dining at the nearby harbor area including Seaport Village & The Headquarters. Those that love to explore and site see find our central location to many local museums and attractions, like the World Famous San Diego Zoo(R) and the Midway Museum very convenient. In addition to our complimentary services, like a daily breakfast buffet, shuttle service and WI-FI, guests may take advantage of some of our new and enhanced amenities from our 2015 first floor remodel. The beautiful outdoor pool and hot tub area with woven modular lounge seating is great for evenings with friends, family time or just relaxing. The new onsite fitness room is perfect for an invigorating work out. We also added a fantastic Sundries area with snacks, small meals and beverages for the convenience of our guests. ... more   less
