Stayed 3 nights at the end of a road trip. Really nice room with good view. Clean and comfortable. Good breakfast. Very handy for little Italy, the seafront and the metro system. Reasonably priced for the centre of San Diego. Free courtesy bus to the airport.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 25 October 2016

Really impressed with BW Plus Bayside Inn. We had been at the Oceanside BW for 4 days and decided to get into the heart of the City for dayside walking and a nighttime crawl. The mid week booking made for competitive pricing and our 14 floor suite looked east to the city and beyond. We asked about a Bay view...

Very nice hotel. The location is great right by Little Italy. We were able to catch the trolley to the fashion district, old town San Diego as well as the Gas Lamp Quarters. We had a marvelous time being tourist in an awesome city.

Location of the hotel is very good, no matter if you're going for a walk or wanna get to the highway by car. The building is rather old, but interior finish is up to date and kept clean. We had quite nice view on a docked ship in my room. With our reservation we've got breakfast, which was served in...

This hotel has a great location and fabulous front desk staff. It is just across the street from the first block of the Little Italy District, about four block straight down the hill to the Harbour and about four to five blocks to American Plaza and Santa Fe trolley stations.

BW Bayside Inn is no frills but very clean and comfortable. Staff was incredibly friendly and very attentive. Great central location. Breakfast was average. We used free shuttle service from airport which was nice. Will stay again.

We arrived late but the check in was quick and the staff great. We had recently stayed in a 5 star hotel and did not get the same reception. Would definitely stay again, close to the water and little Italy, which was fantastic for food, highly recommend it.

Spent 3 nights here prior to taking a cruise. Location is great for airport and cruise terminal. Only disappointment was the chaotic shuttle. Breakfast adequate. Rooms clean. We had a nice view of the bay and railway track

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.

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.
