great location, friendly staff

Within walking distance is Fisherman's Wharf with tons of restaurants & shops. Bourdin had good food and a great view but it was a little pricey. A short walk to Starbucks and Trader Joe's on Bay St. Columbus street had lots of places to eat as well. The Stinking Rose was amazing, and pastry at shops along Columbus were delicious (try Stella.) Giordano Bros made their own fries in front of you and served them ON the sandwich with slaw. A taxi ride away-do not miss the House of Nanking, best Chinese food in town. Served family-style, expect to wait in line. The best food I've had in a while. (I know I must sound fat by now, but I really earned it-we were in town for the San Francisco Marathon!) We rented bikes from Blazing Saddles on Columbus and biked to the Golden Gate-$32 for 24 hour rental, a neat way to see the city. Taxis are all over the place around the hotel, the Hilton is across the street. Bus station close as well. The only drawback to this location was the noise. It is a very busy street and with horns honking and buses thundering by, it was hard to sleep. I finally bought some earplugs from Walgreen's and got a good night's sleep the last night. Also, there is no A/C, but there is a heater. (Although it was freezing in the middle of July in SF, so you may not need the A/C anyway.) The window opens for ventilation and there is a fan. Overall I felt very safe there. I got in really late the first night and stayed alone, then my friends came in the next night. I was not the least bit scared. The staff was really nice & helpful, especially the cleaning lady. I must say I'm pretty picky about hotel cleanliness (especially the bathroom) but this place exceeded my expectations. No hair or dirt anywhere. It was cute with flowers potted everywhere outside. Highly recommend this place-will definitely stay again.

Trader Joe's is three blocks away, so we picked up muffins and fruit for breakfast since the one the motel provided was the just sweet rolls and coffee.

Bayside Inn at the Wharf

The motel was as expected for the price. Located really close to the Fisherman's wharf. It's on a busy street so those that are light sleepers beware. All the surrounding hotels were double the price of this one. It's a dive motel but it wasn't too bad.

Bus stop is just in front of the hotel. Very convinient. They charge parking lot fee. "Parking lot available" doesn't mean it's free....use caution.

What a Dump!

Located on a very busy corner with no noise buffer and we heard cars vrooming all night. There was a sign at the desk that said "Anyone making noise will be asked to leave-no refund". This should have been a red flag but we had pre-paid online. The people in the room next to us partied until we banged on the wall at 4am. Then they just moved down the hall to another room. The ceiling was a patchwork of spackle and mismatched paint and someone must have kicked the bathroom door in and it was poorly patched. I most likely wouldn't stay here again.

The Bay Side Inn was a great place to stay. Very close to alot of tourist attractions such as pier 39/fisherman's warf, cable car stops, lombard street(the crooked street) and many places to eat. I can't wait to go back there again really soon!

Great location, that's it.

Excellent location, but the rooms are really small and the price is too high for the accomodations this hotel has.

Great Location

It is very near Warf, cable car, and restaurants. A trolly stop is right in front. The room are quite small but clean, as was the bathroom; the queen bed was comfortably firm. The staff was friendly and helpful but there are no amenities. Good value in a neighborhood of much higher priced name brand hotels.
