Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by martymouse Quiet and comfortable beds.
This hotel is close to the zoo and other attractions.
We thought it was very quiet and everyone was very friendly. The room had a noisy fan on the air conditioner but I let them know so they would get right on it. They don't know if you don't tell them. I would definately stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cruzsuz72 One of my favorite places to stay
Although I am always staying at this location for training classes and not for vacation, I always enjoy the experience. Despite the renovation project the staff provided top notch service. The café food is very good and housekeeping does a great job of keeping my room clean and supplied. I love the two story portion of the hotel and hope you never remove this part of the hotel. I love being able to sit outside during lunch breaks to enjoy the weather.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Charlie35r35 great staff, noisy room
Staff was great and very kind, Room needs improvements, you can hear every flush coming from the second floor. Not enough parking spaces. If you book, get a room on the second floor.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by samralph Fire Notification Disturbance
The room and accomodations were fair. The bed was clean, but the hotel is a little outdated. The issue was the fire alarm. The maintenance and Fire Marshall were testing the system in the hall. This was not too too bad, until the alarm went off in my room. Then the maintenance and fire marshall opened up my door and simply walked in without knocking. If they did knock, it could not have been heard from the ear pearcing alarm. I even had a do not disturb sign on my door. The hotel did have a note on the desk indicating that the system would be tested. However, it was quite a suprise to find to guys walking into my room without warning.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jeffypop Buildings poolside getting a little long in tooth.
I like this property. Good location, walking distance to Shelter Island Marina and local restaurants. Breakfast at the restaurant is expensive, but about what you would expect and the food was good. The main negative was that our rug had a wet spot from spilled soup (cleaned quickly), and the sink drain was very slow. Also no replaced coffee in our room the next morning. Annoying. The poolside rooms need updating. Good staff. Good pool.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ChrisTheRealist Close to Good Restaurants
We were able to walk to several restaurants from the Hotel. Room was comfortable. Parking was a problem in the evening. Check in person did not provide breakfast coupons, I had to ask for them the following morning. Clerk was terse and questioned me about not receiving them. I observed people with similar problem in the restaurant. Other than that and the parking the overall experience was good.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by glatroni Very nice area / POOLSIDE RESERVATION WAS NOT HONORED
The main reasons for a non-positive rating is as follows…
My Poolside Reservation Was Not Honored!
Had the kids there for vacation.
I actually called about 4:30 p.m., while enroute, to confirm my reservation.
Isn't this the basic reason reservations are made?
Staff said, "I wonder how that happened."
I found a parking permit with the room key folder the next day.
Said place in window of car, to avoid being towed. Would have been nice to get that little tibitbit of info.
Discounts coupons could be used at the hotel restaurant, for meal discounts. I never received any.
The Hotel Restaurant would not accept a hotel receipt, parking pass, or other proof, to apply discount.
I did however see a hotel employee hand a fistful of yellow cards to the manager at the restaurant, who gave some to another employee. (coupons?).
It is possible I may have missed info about meal packages.
Parking was extremely rough, Several storage containers took up much of the scanty available parking.
The Staff did reduce my room rate, for not honoring my non-smoking, poolside, ground level reservation.
Staff Offered a Smoking Poolside Room (unacceptable).
The Harbor Area is Very Very Nice, very quiet with little traffic at night (a little airport noise).
Great restaurants with harbor views, walking distance (some right across the street).
The Hotel Restaurant has good food, large portions, at reasonable prices, and our waitress was great.
Rooms, carpet, etc., were very clean.
Other than the negatives above, pretty nice hotel.

We have stayed here a couple of times and have never been unhappy. Wish they served food a bit later but oh well. There are less expensive places to stay but "you get what you pay for." In this case, it is a good value.

Assigned to a room in the older section behind the registration office, but it was very comfortable and quiet. It was just what we wanted and the price was reasonable. We have stayed there before and like the place.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rileyman Not the Holiday Inn experience I remember
For the price versus value, there are many other choice better than a Holiday Inn to frequent. 15 years ago I traveled quite extensively, and Holiday Inn was a major choice for me. I do not travel as much anymore, and Holiday Inn's have fallen off of my radar. I was staying at this particular Holiday Inn due to my associate had chosen to stay in this hotel. To make our situation easy, I signed up and stayed 5 days here. Huge mistake. To emphasize my regularity at Holiday Inn's, I had to dig through a bag and an old wallet to find my priority card. This hotel is old, and has a smell about it. But what has me upset the most is the lack of customer comfort from the staff. I am naturally high temperature, and the heat really bothers me. My rooms air conditioner, from the first night, would not adjust to a cool level for me. I reported it the next morning to the front desk. The following evening, after an exhausting day, the air conditioner was still not working properly. The service folks came to the room and left a note. Do not adjust the temperature below a certain temperature! That's it! I complained once again the following morning. The next day, late again, the air conditioned was not even looked at, or repaired. Due to getting in late and leaving early, I discontinued my quest for a cool room. Checked out and headed to the airport.

The stop here was my last night on a bicycle trip from San Francisco. All the other stops we stayed at the bargain basement motels with unformfortable beds, 2 pillows, a couple of towels, and no toiletries. It was a pleasure to spend the night here. A great bed, 4 pillows, a bathroom full of towels and toiletries.
We had to get up early the next morning to fly home. The night clerk was wonderful!

We received friendly and efficient service from the staff. We were checked in without delay; the room was very comfortable; we ate at Point Loma Cafe several times, and each time the food was outstanding. We were there for a Navy ship reunion, and we were treated very well. The location was convenient to many restaurants and the harbor. We would stay here again.

I had my wedding there and the staff was wonderful to my self and my guests. They were able to accommodate my last minute requests. We had a 2 bed room for 2 nights and a very spacious suite for the last 2 nights. Rooms were very clean. I was able to access the business office to print out some papers. The laundry room was clean. Great view of the Harbor from my suite.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bfong Accomodating
Came here with a few friends and originally booked a two bed economy room. Having Priority Club Platinum status with the hotel, the staff was able to accomodate a complimentary room upgrade to a two bed, sofabed suite. It was a Smoking room, but did not have a strong smoking smell to it. Upon arriving into the room, we opened the windows and sliding glass door to let the room air out. The room was clean and housekeeping was perfect. The only two complaints we had were the sofabed being uneven and uncomfortable. When fully extended, part of the bed "sank" causing to sleep at an angle. We remedied this by requesting extra pillows and blankets. Second complaint is not hotel related nor could be controlled by the hotel. There was an early trumpet wake up tune played by the naval ships across the street at 7am that was followed by an orchestra-like Star spangled baner tune. It was interesting and great to hear, but it woke my group up too early! Overall, i would stay at the hotel and recommend to others. It's convenient to many attractions and the airport.

Can't say enough about the staff at this Holiday Inn! Friendly faces and greetings that make you feel welcome. From everyone you pass in the hallways, meet in the gift shop, or main lobby---and then there's William! Ah yes, William,----no question too much to answer, suggestions abound for making sure your stay is eventful and fun!
Clean rooms, perfect wi-fi, pool, and other amenities more than sufficient.
Be aware that if you don't have a car, you must ask immediately upom arrival for the bus schedule. We didn't have knowledge of the local system until later in our 1 week stay, and could have saved a great deal of money spent on cab fare for trips to the S.D. Zoo, Sea World, Padres game, and USS Midway, just to name a few. Bus transit and trolley system is clean, efficient and easy to navigate.
Thanks Bayside Holiday Inn and of course, William!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mstrbaseman Holiday Inn San Diego Bayside
After spending two nights here, I can recommend this location with confidence. My room on the 4th floor was comfortable and quiet. The TV service had many channels in fuzzy standard definition, but there are hi def channels available. I had two delicious breakfasts at the Hotel's restaurant, and their happy hour at the bar offered free appetizers and reasonably priced drinks. The hotel is located just a few minutes north of the airport and provides shuttle service. I also got a complimentary shuttle to the cruise terminal which was appreciated. There are restaurants within walking distance and taxis are waiting at a stand in front of the lobby. The San Diego Trolley tour also picks up guests in front of the lobby. I would stay here again.
