Good location & very helpful staff

Posted 23-Apr-2014
Pros: The helpful staff, quiet room and comfortable bed.
Cons: There was no wardrobe or hanging rail for dresses. They had to be hung in the shower. With all that space some provision could be made.
Location: Very close to the airport & on a bus route to the port and downtown attractions. We did not explore things to do by the hotel.
Stayed for 3 nights prior to joining a cruise. The hotel collected us from the airport and took us to the port on the cruise day. The reception staff were very friendly and welcoming and kindly looked up bus times for us and helped us out with change for the buses. We used the coffee shop for breakfast which was very good. The room was very large and comfortable and although we did not face the sea we had a nice view and the location was quiet.

close to everything

Posted 15-Apr-2014
Pros: location, staff
Cons: elevator was super slow, parking very crowded, noisy air conditioner
Location: all sightseeing close by
check in was a breeze, staff was friendly. like the fact that check out time is noon, gave us a chance to shower after a race we did that morning. however, housekeeping was in our room, they had not been told that we had not checked out, they were there around 9. but no worries for us, we got to spend the time we needed in the room before we checked out at noon. close to markets, restaurants, old town, short drive to gaslamp district.

Very pleasant stay

Posted 2-Apr-2014
Pros: Service and people
Location: We walked around just to see the waterfront
Staff very helpful and accommodating. They showed they cared about being able to help and provide a high level of service from the front counter people, the restaurant service ( good food) to the shuttle service driver. Made sure we told the driver when he dropped us off at the airport.

Excellent Location, Dingy Halls and Carpets

Posted 10-Mar-2014
Pros: Free internet.
Cons: Really? You have to charge $10 measly dollars for parking? What's next, $1 for ice?
Location: Close to Downtown, Airport, Sea World, Beaches, etc.
Stayed overnight on Saturday. Booked last minute. Great bed, slept very comfortably. Dingy carpet. Stains on the carpet in my room and the hallway. The hotel looks like a fairly new hotel. The stains didn't look like they were recent stains. What gives? You would expect that Holiday Inn would have a worthwhile standard for cleanliness? But to walk through the hallways and see carpet stains, then walk into your room and see the same? It's very disappointing. Someone is asleep at the wheel. And also, TV was slanted to one side, could not straighten.

Dear Traveler C: Thank you so much for posting your comments regarding your stay at the Holiday Inn Bayside. I was disappointed to hear that the room you stayed at has carpet stains as well as the hallway. We are currently undergoing renovations that includes new carpeting and we are hoping to have everything done and completed by end of May. By way of comparison with the parking situation, our parking fee is the lowest in the area and we do have unlimited in and out priveleges. We definitely want another opportunity to serve you and win back your good faith in our hotel. Sincerely, Rhinna B Meyer - Rooms Division Manager

Overnight near PT Loma

Only complaint is that I had to check in - then get back in my car - drive to an adjacent building - park and go to my room.
