We recently stayed at the Bahia Hotel in Mission Beach. My first impression was that it is a very old and dated hotel with a socal charm to it. We stayed on the marina side of the suites which was absolutely disgusting. Not worth the extra $$ for having a suite. There is a constant musky/mold type smell. The staff...

Melissa McDermott got me and my family excellent bay front rooms, we had the best time in what was basically a private beach. The service and cleaning crew were excellent and extra helpful, especially for the extra supplies and needs for our 4 month old son at the time!

I recently stayed in a bay front suite at the Bahia Resort Hotel in San Diego. What a great experience! My fabulous experience started before I ever stepped foot on the property, during my booking experience. Melissa McDermott is one of the most professional, helpful, and thoughtful staff members at the Bahia. She made my trip great from the very...

My wife and I had our anniversary trip in San Diego and we loved the Bahia. It was very tropical, beachy, clean and comfortable. The customer service was excellent. We dealt mostly with Melissa McDermott and she made the stay extra special. She made sure the staff gave us extra attention for our celebratory visit, and she herself added a...

I have stayed at the Bahia several times in the past and it is one of my favorite hotels in San Diego. Mission Bay is wonderful, close to the ocean and a busy bustling boardwalk, but also feels secluded and quiet on the bay side. The hotel itself rents boats, kayaks, and bikes so no need to bring your own...

This trip was better than last year! The staff at Bahia are always friendly, helpful and always make you feel at home. It was great to see familiar faces and how much they cater to our family vacation experience. Still, so much to see in this secluded part of Mission Bay and not enough vacation days to see it all....

The resort is 60 years old but well maintained. Excellent location facing the bay with a private beach and cabanas. Some buildings/rooms are f-a-r from the lobby, bar and cafe so be sure to ask for a room closer in. Splurge for a room with a view! Numbers 102 to 115 and 352 to 372 are good (see map of...
