It's the BEST (Western)!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 16, 2013

The official name for this property is Best Western PLUS Bayside Inn, and that "plus" says it all.

These were the digs we transferred to after a couple of days on Coronado Island...and enjoyed more than our room at the storied (and ridiculously expensive) Del Coronado. Location is excellent: a mere 3 blocks up the street from the waterfront, just a couple of blocks from restaurant and bars in Little Italy, and a short drive from the airport. The list of amenities is too long to include but those we found particularly nice were:

• Free shuttle to/from the airport (reserve in advance; tip the driver, please)

• Microwave and refrigerator

• Complementary hot breakfast

• Free wifi

• Small balcony

Other notable amenities:

• Heated outdoor pool - nice for families traveling with children

• Multilingual staff: Japanese, German, Spanish, Korean, Tagalog

• Facilities to accommodate specific physical challenges: ramps, grab bars, roll-in showers, shower bench, hearing-impaired TDD phone

Rooms have either city or bay views, and I’ll advise springing for the latter as ours was absolutely worth the little extra for catching evening sunsets over a cocktail. DO specify one on the uppermost floors for best views. Clean, quiet, friendly staff, reasonable rates (for location/amenities)…. what’s not to like?

One small downside: there is a fee for parking but this is pretty standard for downtown hotels, and there is virtually none of the annoying “nickel-diming” you’ might experience at area resorts or certain posh hotels.

Note: price ranged noted is per room and not per person.
