I chose this hotel because of its close proximity to the places we wanted to visit. It is conveniently located in the downtown area and within walking distance of several local attractions. (Which is important because parking is at a premium downtown.) For the location, the price was very reasonable. The hotel was clean and the staff courteous. The breakfast...

The beds and pillows were very comfy. The room was clean, fresh and quiet, even thought it was near an elevator. I especially appreciated the balcony for fresh sea air. And, you can't beat the location! The downside is "downtown" parking garage and their limited tight spaces.

What a great hotel for budget rates!! We had never been to San Diego before and took a chance with booking downtown.

We stayed here during a quick visit to san Diego. The location of the hotel is good (if you take the correct routes to town) we found parts of ash street to be rough and dangerous looking.

BEST WESTERN PLUS Bayside Inn is quite an average Best Western - not too old and not very modern. The hotel's public areas are under going some modernisation at the moment but the rooms are still a bit on the old side, but not derelict so one may still feel comfortable there. Room size is good for a city location...

Good sized rooms, good location on the outskirts of Little Italy and within walking distance to the Gas Lamp Quarter.

We took our grandsons to San Diego on the train for a concert at the Marina South. It's peak tourist season so all the hotels are very expensive but this one is only a few blocks from the train/trolley station & had a double queen room.

Had an awesome room with a lot of extras that I would have had to pay for in another hotel. That made it a great value. I really enjoyed the property and the staff. The staff made our stay much nicer. They were very helpful and friendly.

Great place to stay at a great price. Hotel was clean, presentable and very relaxing. Can't beat free breakfast either. I didn't get to try the lounge of restaurant but I did like the fact that each room had a balcony.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Best Western Plus Bayside Inn is located in the heart of downtown San Diego, perfect for site seeing or business trips. Our proximity to Little Italy offers guests easy access to amazing dining and breweries from award winning chefs. Guests can easily walk to shopping and dining at the nearby harbor area including Seaport Village & The Headquarters. Those that love to explore and site see find our central location to many local museums and attractions, like the World Famous San Diego Zoo(R) and the Midway Museum very convenient. In addition to our complimentary services, like a daily breakfast buffet, shuttle service and WI-FI, guests may take advantage of some of our new and enhanced amenities from our 2015 first floor remodel. The beautiful outdoor pool and hot tub area with woven modular lounge seating is great for evenings with friends, family time or just relaxing.
