BW Plus Bayside Inn is open once again!... With Best Western’s new “WE CARE CLEAN” program – which enhances our 75-year reputation for leading the industry in cleanliness – we are prioritizing the wellness of our guests and staff. Our guests appreciate being able to open up the rooms’ balcony doors and take in the fresh air from San Diego’s ocean breezes. While some services have been modified or reduced – with your safety & wellbeing in mind – we have added: sanitation stations, social distancing guidelines and more. All of our rooms have refrigerators and microwaves. For guests that want to take advantage of our Little Italy location, many of the nearby restaurants are offering delivery and curbside pick-up. Our grab & go breakfast bags are complimentary and provide our guests with a safe and convenient dining option. As a precautionary measure and to abide by the government requirements, we are unable to provide the following services upon re-opening: shuttle, breakfast buffet, pool & hot tub, business and fitness center.

San Diego, California4 contributions1 helpful vote
this is a great location near the bay, little italy and downtown. there is a free shuttle provided by the city called Fred that is easy to use from here as well the staff were all helpful, especially Sylvia she is one of the afternoon clerks Rooms were clean breakfast was a bag of food, it was fine and if you are still hungry they gave me an extra some had fruit which was nice for later as a snack. bring some napkins as there were non with the breakfast, the rooms all had microwave ovens and mini refrigerators, so bring plates and forks makes it easier Pool was clean and mostly empty of people till the weekend. often there were cigarette butts by the loungers, but some people do not follow the non smoking policy even when they sign they will. not the hotels fault very nice place to stay try and book the pool view it is quieter and worth the extra couple of $$ the street noise is a lot otherwise.

Hotel's Favourite
First time here - Grace greeted us with a very friendly and helpful welcome. The location in Little Italy is outstanding. It’s close to the bay and the restaurants on India Street are some of the best. In fact we enjoyed the best Italian dinner we’ve had in a long time right across the street at Petrini‘s. The room was well appointed and the pool and spa look great even though access is limited during pandemic. The onsite parking is half the price of most places at $20 overnight. This is our new favorite place to stay in San Diego San Diego

The staff was very excellent, the accommodation was an exceptional and location was great. Especially the lady receptionist who took my reservation whom I don’t remember her name and who went over, above and beyond to make my stay pleasant. The only thing needed was the gym facility needed to be tended. Otherwise, it’s perfect!
