The hotel is in a lovely place, on a small peninsula in Mission Bay and thus surrounded by beaches. It's only two blocks from the surf at the oceanfront Mission Beach and the roller coaster and other attractions at Belmont Park. The staff at the front desk and at the restaurant, the bar and the small store and elsewhere are...

So my family and I had a mini Vacation and wanted to get a hotel that was near the beach and near San Diego zoo. The hotel was near the pier and all attractions.

We recently stayed at the Bahia Hotel in Mission Beach. My first impression was that it is a very old and dated hotel with a socal charm to it. We stayed on the marina side of the suites which was absolutely disgusting. Not worth the extra $$ for having a suite. There is a constant musky/mold type smell. The staff...
