Stayed for 6 nights here in August. Location is great - a few minutes walk to the Bay, Santa Fe Terminal for transit options, Little Italy, Hortons Plaza etc.
Room was clean and the views from the Balcony were great. The Breakfast was an added incentive !!!

Room Tip: Request higher floors for a Bay View

The hotel was average, rates considerably high for the area, breakfast in the morning was very good, but had to walk out to facility next door, the hrs. were inconsistent with weekday & wknds. The hotel parking very inconvenient with getting to rooms, no access to hotel from parking garage, had to walk down 4 flights of stairs to get to hotel entrance. Needs much improvement for convenience to guests. The $14 p/night parking fee was also a surprise, which was never explained making reservations, or while checking in. Only after checking out, was it explained.

This is a very value added hotel in a great location in San Diego. This hotel provides parking for an additional $14.00 per night. The location is great because it is one block from Little Italy where there are many very nice restaurants and three blocks from the Bay. We ate at Anthony's several times on the Bay three block from the hotel. The only disappointment was that the pool is very SMALL and doesn't get any sun. The buffet breakfast was terrific every day and on Thursday evening's they offer a two hour window of beer/wine and appetizers. All in all it was a great value.

Request upper floor on the Bay Side. Great views and less able to hear the numerous sirens from the San Diego Fire Dept. They are very busy! Love the Hotel and the staff, even with a few glitches really make your stay enjoyable!

Stayed at the Bayside Inn Labor Day weekend the hotel was decent for the value & great location. Our room had two queen size beds, but the carpet on the side of the bed next to the wall was dirty you could see gray dirt. Overall the room was decent, the breakfast buffet was good and the staff pleasant. You have to go outside to get to the restaurant next door. The sound barrier wasn't very good because I could hear every step taken on the floor above which disturbed my sleep.

Room Tip: Stay above the 6th floor for a harbor view.

The Best Western Plus is a really nice Hotel with easy walking distance to the Famous Gas Lamp Quarter. The parking isn't to bad and Not as expensive as most Hotels in Downtown San Diego. It would be Nice if they would have there Bar opened on the Weekends and if there Restaurant was opened a little later. Other than that is a nice place to stay.

Decent price. Great staff - very friendly. Nice extras - such as breakfast and cheaper parking - that you don't find at the fancy downtown hotels. Within walking distance of Little Italy, Gaslamp, Midway carrier, marine museum, harbor. A good option for families as the staff are very kid-friendly. My coworker stayed at the Westin, paid a lot more (even with conference discount) for a similar quality of room and no breakfast. Hotel decor is a bit dated but the hotel is very clean. Room amenities were all well-maintained and in working order (no wall dings and sloppy bathroom tile fixes to stare at).
