Nice location, close to public transportation and Pacific Beach. Our room was on the first floor with our patio facing the Bay. The room was dated and in need of upgrades. However, it was very clean. Housekeeping was excellent, we enjoyed coming back in the evening to clean room. We had dinner at the Café and drinks in the lounge...

Had a great time at the Bahia. Rooms close to bay and beaches. Rooms nice, clean. Restaurants on property are terrible but there are many good restaurants within walking distance. I also found inconsistency with room rates. When booking an additional night I was quoted one rate at the front desk and another when I called in to the reservations...

We loved staying here. A close walk to Belmont Park,a few restaurants, easy to get on freeways, close to a great bike trail around Mission Bay. A short drive to more restaurants. It is a bit old but the rooms were big and the little kitchen was nice to have. Two tennis courts, a beach with firepits, a wonderfully terrific...

We really enjoyed the beachfront studio. The room was a little dated but had a super functional kitchen for us. The Wi-Fi didn't work the whole time we were here which was really frustrating for our little gamers! This property is dog friendly and we brought our little shih Tzu. He was very comfortable. Be aware, the dog can't be...

Beyond the Bahia, seemingly countless options offering an array of culinary experiences are just minutes away. For those seeking to spend their vacation on the water, Bahia Resort Hotel boasts an assortment of options. Headlining these choices is the Bahia Belle, an 1860s-era sternwheeler that tours guests around the bay nightly. Step back in time and enjoy a colorful sunset and views of the bay’s playful seals from the top deck, then prepare to kick up your heels as the vessel becomes a vibrant nightlife destination with live entertainment and a full-service bar. Additional nearby water activities include sailing, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, surfing and more though nobody will blame you for simply relaxing on our soft sand beaches or at our sparkling pool.
