Planning a Family Reunion at Holiday Inn Bayside

Picking the right venue is the key to planning a successful family reunion. Choose a hotel with an ideal address for sightseeing and plenty of fun games and activities, and there will be more than enough to keep everyone busy. Here’s a guide to the location and activities, as well as accommodations, offered at Holiday Inn San Diego Bayside.


The property resides in the heart of the Point Loma neighborhood, with San Diego Bay and the Marina just moments away. Sunset Cliffs, the artisanal eateries at Liberty Public Market, and the tide pools at Cabrillo National Monument are all within three miles (the last is just up the hill), while San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter and Old Town, as well as Balboa Park, are all within a 15- to 20-minute drive. Foodies will enjoy trying the numerous restaurants in the area, like Mitch’s Seafood; brew-philes can sample the lagers and pilsners at Eppig Brewery; and more-active family members can take advantage of the local sport-fishing outfits and kayak rentals across the street. For the sightseeing-inclined members of your family, this is an address that simply can’t be beat.


For those who prefer to stay on the premises themselves, the hotel’s got a heated outdoor pool, a hot tub, a fitness center, and a fleet of rental bikes to ride around the grounds. There are even lawn games such as Connect Four, a nine-hole putting green, and facilities for table tennis and shuffleboard, in case you’re interested in holding some kind of family-wide tournament or competition. In short, in between whatever banquets, receptions, and other reunion events you plan, your family members will always have something fun to do. Check out our amenities for more information.


Holiday Inn’s accommodations offer everything your family members could possibly need for a good night’s sleep, along with extras like a Keurig coffeemaker, a mini fridge, and complimentary Wi-Fi (check out the full list of amenities). If you’re in a Poolside room, you’ll enjoy views of the putting green or pool from the balcony or patio, and the new building’s rooms offer full-sized refrigerators. If your family wants to stay in larger groups, you can even reserve a block of suites, which accommodate up to six.
