Comfortable beds, clean rooms, great view from balcony (we reserved a bay view room), great service from staff, and excellent location close to the trolley. Reading other reviews, I found absolutely nothing “sketchy” about this neighborhood. Little Italy is about as yuppie as a neighborhood gets and I’m so glad I didn’t book in the Gaslamp district after seeing what...

This hotel is within walking distance to the Embarcadero, USS Midway, Little Italy (it's really close) and to the Gaslamp Quarter (about a 15 minute walk). It's also close to the Trolley and Amtrak. I had a bayview room, which was super nice, especially at sunset. The beds were VERY comfortable with nice, soft pillows. You also get a microwave...

If you are looking for a location in San Diego close to both the airport and downtown, then look no further. The Best Western Bayside is only a couple of blocks from the piers, and we walked everywhere. We were there for only 1 day, and walked to Petco Park and Gaslamp district. The next day had to fly out,...

Just a couple miles from the Ocean, but far enough away from the crowds, this hotel is in a quiet, safe neighborhood. Stayed here on business and was pleasantly surprised by the breakfast offerings! Would definitely return.
