All About Location, Nothing Else

Posted Jul 25, 2015
This hotel is all about location. When we first arrived we were greeted by very friendly & helpful staff. However, when we got to our room (King suite with Kitchenette), it smelled very bad. Upon further examination, we discovered the garbage disposal was jammed and the smell was coming from there. We called and maintence came within a few minutes. He fixed it, and told us to keep the sink covered so it wouldn't smell anymore. It was really disgusting cooking during our 5 day stay and getting a whif of rotting carcass. Although our room had a bay view, to our surmise, we discovered that there was a public parking lot right outside of our balcony. Large groups had parties nightly so there really wasn't a romantic ambiance. There were even campers with RVs that set up camp right outside our balcony. Housekeeping did a great job when they showed up. One day, they simply skipped our room. The furnishing of the actual room where worn and kind of gross. The carpet was stained, bed was hard as a rock, and bathroom had rust and flooding issues. We contemplated switching hotels, however, we had too much stuff with us to repack. I would recommend the Mission Beach area, but next time we are planning to rent a vacation house, which we can get for around the same price per night.

We are very sorry your experience was marred by problems with the garbage disposal, and cars parked overnight outside your balcony. Parking overnight is not allowed and vehicles that are left there are ticketed, but we apologize that this was not implemented by the city during your stay. We hope that despite the incidents you mention, you still had a chance to enjoy Mission Bay and the surrounding areas.

Very Friendly staff

Posted Jul 24, 2015
My entire family loved this hotel! The staff was friendly, professional, and everyone greeted us with a smile and hello every day including groundskeeper security and maids. The hotel was clean, close to the beach, area atractions, and there were a lot of activities to do at the resort. We would stay here again if we were in the San Diego area. Thank you for a great stay.

Unfortunately the Bahia Resort is showing it's age (65yrs), but the location is worth it.

Great Hotel

Posted Jul 10, 2015
Really enjoyed staying here. The rooms are spacious with good facilities. The hotel is in a very good location, right next to the beach and walking distance to SeaWorld. Tickets can also be bought in the shop for cheaper than on the door prices as well. Staff were excellent also. The pool is a very good size and clean. The only thing I thought needed an upgrade was the Gym which was very basic, they only had 1 key for 3 weight machines meaning only one person could use all 3 machines. Overall, would recommend to anyone.

Beautiful hotel in an excellent location.

We have stayed at the Bahia many times over the last 20 years and are never disappointed. The property is beautiful and conveniently located, in walking distance to food, shops, parks and Mission Beach.
