My wife and I stayed at this hotel in late February and found it to be in a great location. It is near the fantastic waterfront, the trolley station and Little Italy. The breakfast has a large choice of fruits, pastries, eggs etc etc etc. The staff was friendly and helpful. One of the best features of this hotel is...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 September 2016

We stayed here for 4 nights after a Disney cruise. The hotel is conveniently located a few blocks from the cruise ship terminal so it was easy to disembark and walk up to the hotel, thus avoiding the hassle of renting a car or waiting in a long line for a cab. We also loved that it was 3 blocks...

I chose this hotel because of its location to downtown, to Little Italy and I knew a Rite Aid is 2 blocks away. I also wanted an airport shuttle and complimentary breakfast. I'm really glad I chose this hotel! Only slight critique is I wish they offered more variety on the hot entrees. They alternated between scrambled eggs/ sausage/potatoes, and...

I chose a really good hotel for my first visit to San Diego, on the edge of Little Italy where there is an excellent choice of restaurants, near Downtown and the Gas Lamp district and a ten minute walk to no less than four theatres. Also near the harbour, and Santa Fe station which was ideal for my train journey...

Booked this hotel during CRSSD festival weekend. Absolutely loved it here, because they offered a pretty good breakfast and was walking distance to everything. Will definitely stay here again when I'm in town.

Arrived at the Bayside Inn today. Called from the airport for the shuttle but it was in the garage getting fixed. The desk clerk said to take a cab, get a receipt and they would reimburse us. They came through on their promise. Once we were booked in all our questions were answered and directions to locations given. The entryway...

all you would expect at a good hotel. The building is old but well kept , has a nice convenient parking garage and breakfast room. The thermostat is a bit tricky at times ---ask for help at the desk to be sure you operate it properly.

Nice location, walking distance to interesting amenities, restaurants, port. Very expensive parking in the garage. I'd say the value was ok, given the extra parking cost, knowing that there are cheaper alternatives around. Great rooms and comfortable beds, quiet area and very safe.
