I will say the nice aspect of the Bayside Holiday Inn, was that they had a free shuttle bus that picked us up from the San Diego airport, and brought us to the hotel. The drive from the airport was just about 12 minutes, so not a long commute from the airport. The shuttle driver was friendly, as we asked...

For sure I was expecting something more from this hotel. A part the good location and the nice parking I found my room with a strong smell of bleach. Also the carpet was smelling throughout the hotel. We tried to pass from the pool but it was not very clean. As a spire member I was not offered the welcome...

Stayed here for 4 nights in March and had a great time. Nice place to spend evenings and great location to walk from on my jaunts every day. There is a great restaurant at the hotel for breakfasts and you can walk along the promenade and find more restaurants quite easily. I found the hotel staff to be quite friendly...

Stayed there with my wife and kid, didn't go to the pool but it looked great. We walked around the area and across the street is a number of restaurants and down the street is a great Mexican food place plus nightlife. Room was good.

We went to San Diego for college reunion at Point Loma Nazarene University. We got a free upgrade. It took us like 3 tries to get in the parking lot at 11 PM. ( You had to enter from the back street, not from Harbor Drive. The staff was nice, although we're told not to park at what I thought...

Good hotel with nice rooms and a great location. Great space in the rooms and you are minutes away from great food or an average Lyft or Uber ride of around $6 to get to Ocean Beach area. Van service is prompt and very convenient from the San Diego Intl Airport.

Pros: Very close to the airport and cruise ship docks. They have a mini golf course and shuffleboard on the property. Cons: Older and musty, they also have a gnat problem. I killed 3 or 4 in the one night I stayed there. Also, their doors have 2 peep holes, which creeped me out and I put tape over both.

The hotel is old, worn out carpet, irregular water pressure and temperature which can lead to scalding in the shower or even at the sink. It was difficult to reach anyone at the front desk to discuss concerns. Several in our party became ill from food. Incorrect amount charged to my credit card when I checked out.

We had a conference planned at this hotel so we stayed at the same hotel. It was a good location with nearby restaurants. It was nice accommodations for the conference with good service. The rooms were nice and clean. It does not include a free breakfast so we ate at the nearby restaurant.
