Lacks comfort

Posted 18-Apr-2015
Mattresses lacked support and comfort. Hot tub was closed due to repairs. On the day we arrived we were advised by other hotel guests that there was a water leak in the hotel and they were out of water for a few hours. On the next day we experienced the same situation and were told by the office that a water main broke in the street resulting in no water for 4 hours. This affected all buildings except the one with the main office. The hotel offered to put our name on a list to use a loaner room so we could shower in order to attend a wedding we were in town for. We declined that offer and asked and they just move us to the "loaner" room and they said that was not an option. They offered to move us to a "sister hotel" down the road about a mile, which we accepted. Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to enjoy San Diego prior to the wedding since we were busy packing and unpacking. Personally, I don't believe there was a main break and feel this was the hotels way of conserving water. Unclear how it could affect all the building "except" the main office.

Great staff..place was in great condition..we took our 5 yr old and my 6month old. Although we weren't in the room much it was nice to come back to a relaxed comfortable room...plus for being by the train tracks and airport it was very quiet and relaxing.

Nice standard room.

Posted 25-Mar-2015
We were booked in the part B Section so we had to drive around the back. The room was a standard room, it was a bit small but it had a refrigerator. The bathroom sink area was small with little room to put things down. Although, we paid 120$ we were not offered the continental breakfast, we were told that wasn't part of the deal. parking was $10. I would give it 3 1/2 stars overall. We needed 2 cribs and they did accommodate our request with no problem.

Knocked on the door at 8:20am to clean our room, asked the lady to come back in an hr, then found our room was never cleaned in the evening when we got back to the hotel :( The manager was doing the ck in process then passed it over to another girl, she went to help the tour bus driver, do not like this kind of service.

Dear LA: Thank you so much for sharing your experience about your recent stay at the Holiday Inn Bayside. Please allow me to apologize about any inconveniences you might have experience because housekeeping did not only disturbed you early in the morning but your room was never even cleaned after that. It seems like our usual attention to detail was lacking at that time. I also am sorry that your experience during the check in process was not very pleasant as you were passed on to somebody else. I will pass this information to the Front Office Manager to make sure this does not happen again in the future. I hope that you will give us another opportunity to showcase the kind of service I wish you have received in the first place. We are looking forward to your next visit to San Diego. Sincerely, Rhinna B Meyer - Rooms Division Manager

Nice hotel close to the bay

Posted 16-Feb-2015
Very nice and professional staff. Rooms are very clean and the beds are extremely comfortable. Parking is convenient and close to the building entrance where our room was. My only complaint is that the lighting in the room was poor. Applying makeup in the bathroom was difficult and even the desk light was not the best. Otherwise, I was very happy. I would definitely stay again.

Let Down

Posted 5-Feb-2015
Expected more given the star rating and price I paid. Paid additional for parking, however hard to find open spots. Pool/spa area in refurbishment. Bathroom had bugs, dirty tub, missing shower curtain and hole in shower ceiling. Remote for the didn't work correctly. Rest of the room was ok. Staff seemed unfazed by my comments on room issues. Restaurant/bar staff friendly, however it was hit and miss on quality of food and beverages.

Weekend Getaway

It was very pleasant. I really like the thick curtains that blocked all the light come into the room.

Close to the airport

This hotel was immaculate when our family arrived. We had a very short stay, however, we were quite pleased.
