“Centrally located”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Everytime I have gone to San Diego for work, the company has put us up at the Best Western Plus Bayside Inn. The hotel is resonable, clean and the staff is friendly and other than a few minor occasions with guests, it is fairly quiet. It is centrally located in the downtown area close to the airport, The Gas Lamp District, the Harbor, Little Italy and the MTS Trains. The only issues I have with this hotel is that there is no room service for dinner on the weekends and the attached restaurant is not open after breakfast on Sat or Sun. and dependig on the room, the wireless internet can be spotty. Other than that I would stay there even if I went for pleasure.

Room Tip: I like any room above the 8th floor and on the bay side but that is my preference.

The Best Western Plus Bayside Inn is a definite pick on my list for San Diego hotels. A bit removed from the Gas Lamp District is reflected in their fair pricing. Rooms are very clean, the bed is comfortable, and we were provided a nice view of the bay (somewhat blocked but never-the-less, a view.) Breakfast is included as well. The train does run by the hotel by a couple of blocks, however, it certainly doesn't influence my opinion of the hotel.
The desk staff was very friendly, accommodating and customer service oriented. Parking was easy in their lot, although a few tight turns here and there. Parking fees are dramatically lower at this hotel then the hotels one mile away in the Gas Lamp district. Definitely use the designated check-in spaces to unload your luggage and then park (no elevators in the parking structure.) Two elevators service the hotel, therefore, allow a few minutes extra if you're on a time constraint as there is a bit of a wait during the prime-time check-out period!
Overall, a nice, comfortable, economical and safe place to stay.

Room Tip: Floor 9 provides a nice view of the bay (somewhat blocked) and minimal train noise.

The hotel has a great location: near downtown and just a few steps to little italy. Our room had a very good size and a very confortable bed. Our room was on the 8th floor and we had a great bay view. During the day is a little bit noisy because the train station is near by .The breakfast was very good. I'd stay here again.

Our stay was Jan. 18 & 19th 2012. Great place to spend your pre-cruise time. The room was clean and comfortable. We never made it to the pool but it looked nice. You could hear the train in our room facing the bay, but not too bad. We were on the 8th floor. Elevators were good. The staff were very freindly.

The restaurant next door had excellent service but could have had a bigger menu.

The hotel was in walking distance to Seaport Village, Little Italy, and to the shore where we spent most of our time walking around and going whale watching.

Our only complaint was the water temp. in the shower flucuates.

Room Tip: free shuttle to ship. we took a cab to hotel for around $12, but could have taken the shuttle

well we only stayed here for 2 nights, we were touring the states, but not only is it excellently situated but everything you want is within a 5 min walk.
The staff were friendly, the rooms secure and clean and breakfast, as far as we were conserned decent, i have read a lot of negative comments on this hotel and sorry but as a traveller to " the states " on a regular basis i think this hotel is really good.
If you want to be treated like royalty nip over the bridge to the hotel corinado and loose your mortgage, yes we stayed there as well and not a patch on the location of this hotel !
We will be back xxx
