Best Western Plus Bayside INN

NEH Summer Scholars have many options for housing in San Diego to fit all budget levels. However our popular downtown location makes finding inexpensive accommodations a challenge. To help with this, the museum has arranged for a limited room block at Best Western Plus Bayside INN.

Our room block is for 12 double Queen Bed rooms that hold 2 people (24 beds). These rooms are on a first come, first served basis and are single sex only. Participants choosing this option will have their lodging deducted directly from the NEH Stipend for the full amount. This option is only available for NEH Summer Scholars and is only reserved through the Maritime Museum of San Diego.

Session I: $62.00 per night plus tax. All rates are subject to 10.5% city tax + 2% Tourism Assessment Fee. Check in 3:00pm Sunday June 21, and Check out is 12:00 noon on Friday June 26, 2015
