MHochstatter, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Bayside Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Shelly, Great to hear you had a good time. If you're looking for a quick trip to SF have our shuttle take you to BART and you'll be in downtown SF in 12 minutes. On your return, enjoy a relaxing trip and take the ferry. You'll be dropped off at Jack London Square and then our shuttle will come and retrieve you. Uber or taxi around the city. We look forward to seeing you again soon
