Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 10, 2009

We stayed at this motel for one night during our road trip across California. Thank God it was only one night! The room was nice, definitely big enough for the two of us, bathroom was in good condition too. When I wanted to take a shower in the evening, I noticed that the floor mat hanging on the shower cabin was still wet. We hadn’t used it yet, so obviously housekeeping didn’t change it. The other towels were fresh and clean though.

Our room was located on the ground floor, right at the corner of the building. We have no problem with a bit of outside noise, it’s to be expected in a city after all. Right next to our room was a little gate that was kept locked at night, so that only guests could enter the little courtyard. There was no quiet way to open or close the gate, it squeaked so badly and had to be pushed into the lock really hard for it to close. Needless to say we hardly slept at all that night.
The people staying above us left the hotel around 5 am, we could hear their every move above us. Again, I don’t mind a little bit of noise, but this was ridiculous, the hotel could definitely do something about their insulation.

The next morning upon checkout, I mentioned my remarks to the guy working. He just looked at me until I finished, then continued with the checkout, and apologized for the inconvenience, in a way like he couldn’t care less. Maybe we were naïve, but we were hoping for a little compensation from them. For $159 a night we definitely expected something better! This was the most expensive hotel we stayed at during our trip, and it was by far the worst!

Unique Quality: The only good thing is the location, it's right by the beach and about 5 minute's walk from the Pier.

Bayside Hotel - a hidden treasure by the beach

Unique Quality: This is a small, cozy little hotel on the beach and just minutes away from the Pier and Third Street Promenade. The hotel is older but the staff is friendly, rooms are clean and the ocean view rooms with the little patios have better views than all other hotels in this price range! My number one destination in LA!

Very Nice, Excellant Value

Four of us stayed 2 nights at Bayside and it was excellant. Only about $140/night and the location was perfect. Across the street from the park/beach, 5 minute walk to the pier, a couple minutes more to the 3rd Street Promenade, and a little longer walk to Venice Beach. Accomodations were older, but very clean; more of a vintage feel, definately not run-down. The front desk help was super. First night, they gave us a local map and marked helpful points of interest, very welcoming. Later, the parking lot was full so they told us they plug the meters for us if we had to park on the street! All in all, a beautiful place for a bargain price.
