Booked this hotel for a short weekend stay. There are great walking areas around the marina with good shops and restaurants. I had problems making my reservations and Brittany in the reservation office was very helpful and professional. The room was clean and comfortable. It was a bit of a trek outside of the main building to get to the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The hotel is well situated near the bay with several restaurants within an easy walk -- though the hotel restaurant serves excellent food. The out door pool is beautiful and we never found it crowded. There is also a small putting green. But what I liked most of all was the friendly desk staff. After my friend and I read...

The front desk was helpful. I requested a room in the older two-story building that opened up into the putting green area and wasn't disappointed. The rooms weren't brand new, but they weren't old and musty either. The landscaping, easy access to pool and putting greens was well worth it. Lots of places within walking distance to eat or groceries...

Front desk staff wasn't as welcoming as I expected. When Eduardo appeared I felt the welcome and professionalism and put it behind me. The room wasn't as described and a tad misleading. Marriott does a better job describing their rooms and the square footage. I felt I overpaid for a motel and for the price should have been in the...

I enjoyed staying here for four nights. Clean room, good area to explore around. The pool and hot tub was nice to stop in at night. I enjoyed walking by the marina and to Shelter Island. Rosecrans street is nearby for many places to eat. Also Point Loma is a short walk for shopping and food. I would have enjoyed...

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.
