Wyndham San Diego Bayside

1355 N Harbor Drive, San Diego - Map
 
 
This hotel is right on the harbor and walking distance from the Star of India and the Midway. It was less money than other downtown hotels. The restaurant is apparently being redone, so the only place to eat in the hotel was a cafe. They did have room service, which we did not use. We did get dessert at the cafe and enjoyed it. The room was clean and comfortable. Our keys turned off before we checked out, so when we got back after walking to a nearby restaurant for breakfast, we could not get into our room. There was a hotel staff member nearby who was very helpful. she did not want to just let us into the room (good for security) so she tried calling the front desk to get confirmation. It took a long time before we were let into the room. We we checked out a little while later, we let the front desk know. It was actually a pretty big inconvenience, if we had had a plane to catch, the amount of time it took to get back in the room could have been disastrous. It would have been nice if the front desk offered some compensation. I mentioned that, and he apologized again, but did not offer anything.

"Very Happy"
Our family does not take vacations together very often. With three kids it has always been something we save for. This year our oldest turned 18 so we figured we would go to San Diego as our last big family trip. We were so pleased with everything about our stay here! The room was big enough for five people to comfortably stay and everyone remarked on how clean and well kept the hotel was. My kids loved the heated pool and I enjoyed reading in the evenings poolside and fireside at the same time. I was able to do laundry without any issues one evening too. Breakfast was good as long as we went earlier than 8:30. Our last two days we waited since we didn't have any activities early in the day and it was hard to find seating together. Parking was the only other bummer. There were some trucks that parked through multiple spots with their trailer so it made it a bit tight... then paying $18/a day for parking just made it annoying. We completely recommend this property to others.

"Very nice hotel near convention center & harbor."
We enjoyed our stay at the Horton Grand Hotel. It is within walking distance to the Gas Lamp District, the convention center, and the harbor attractions. The rooms are comfortable, if a bit small. The staff was very polite, pleasant, accommodating and helpful. They made excellent recommendations and reservations for activities while we stayed with them. If we every return to the San Diego area, we would definitely stay with them again.

"Ode to Rob"
Overall, wonderful location and very clean hotel. We ended staying for two extra nights and ended booking a different room for each. Rob, among many others, was extremely helpful and invaluable in convincing us to extend our trip in SD and specifically in Porta Vista. Going directly through the hotel you can get a free bfast and free valet parking. Rooms were decently spacious and each has its own charm. You're with in a mile of all the exciting things on the shore and it seems to be a safe neighbourhood to walk around in at night. Another bonus - if you drive around enough, you can find free parking esp on evenings and weekends. Down side...valet attendants is a hit or miss. Some are nice enough, others...are a work in process. Don't let them impact your experience of the location. Front desk staff are wonderful. Housekeeping is extremely nice.
