We are excited to announce our Lobby makeover project which will take place from January 2014 to early May 2014.. The Bayside Inn is adopting an open air concept to brighten and expand our lobby and reception areas. We are certain you will be very pleased with the results. The Bayside Inn will be in full operation during construction with restaurant and services available to guests. Please note, that our pool and spa will be closed during the remodeling, as we will upgrade this area also. We sincerely apologize in advance for any inconvenience caused by the construction during your stay with us. This fourteen story full service modern hotel is located in downtown San Diego near the San Diego Bay. Conveniently located near all of San Diego's most popular destinations the Gaslamp Quarter, Horton Plaza, the Cruise Terminal, Anthology, Sea World, San Diego Zoo, and Old Town.

Great except for one small problem

Our room keys constantly had to be reset, which was incredibly frustrating. Other than that, excellent place.

Worked Perfectly for My Group

My group stayed here for our annual St. Patrick's Day trip this past weekend. It worked perfectly. We had a pretty view of the bay, and our 2 rooms were connecting, making it feel like one big room with 2 bathrooms. We were able to walk to both Balboa Park and the Gaslamp Quarter (longer walks, but I like walking). The breakfast was better than I expected, including eggs and a meat everyday. Overall, I was happy with the hotel choice.

The Rite Aid down the street is conveniently located. However, note that you cannot purchase alcohol until 10:00am, so you need to plan ahead for morning mimosas.

Very comfortable stay. Good free breakfast and other free amenities. Only reason for an overall 4 is that it is a slight walk from central areas, but roads are safe.

Excellent Weekend Get Away !!!

The hotel is centrally located. Everything you need is within walking distance. The staff is helpful and friendly. The rooms are nicely adorned and the beds are very comfortable and make for a good nights sleep. It is not a fancy hotel, but it is a good value. I will definitely stay there again.

America's Finest City Half Marathon

Location in downtown was good and close to Balboa Park (Zoo, Museums etc) and harbor. The Freeways are within half mile. The staff was polite and helpful. The room was very big comfortable. The carpet is stained and very old looking. The hotel offers free breakfast. The hotel only has weekday restaurant with happy hour. The free breakfast for is a travel cost saver. Little Italy is only a couple blocks walk and has several restaurants especially Italy restaurants. I recommend this hotel.

Good value for the money

This is a clean and comfortable hotel for the money. It's located 3-4 blocks from the trolley. You can park your car, if you've brought one, and take the trolley throughout the city. The cost (as of this posting) was $5 a day per person for an all-day pass. The staff was very courteous and helpful. We chose not to eat at the restaurant associated with the hotel (only because we have our favorite places), so we can't comment on the resturant. The hotel is located in your "typical" downtown neighborhood in any large city--meaning you'll see all types of people (tourists, families, business people as well as homeless individuals). We took the trolley to Petco Park, the Gaslamp District and to the Fashion Valley Mall (a very nice place to shop). My husband and I have stayed at many upscale Marriott, Westin and Sheraton hotels on business. However, for our personal travel, this is a nice hotel for the money. I don't believe it has a fitness or business center, but does offer free wi-fi, although it seemed a little slow when used with our iPad. We'd stay here again.

Check out the Gaslamp District. Lots of restaurants, bars, etc. It's a short ride on the trolley.
