We were so very impressed with our first experience at this property. From the airport pickup to the registration desk we had such great personalities to assist us. We were there to watch the Christmas Boat Parade and had a marvelous view. There are some signs of aging in the physical amenities but the updating of rooms was just fine... More

The bay club is small and intimate with a beautiful view of the marina. The staff is very friendly, the location is excellent; close to the airport but away from all the noise and crowds. Very easy to get to the highway for the beaches, or to downtown. Would definitely stay here again.

We have stayed at Bay Club several times over the past years. This was a gem of hotel that we found. It is located on shelter island and you are in the center of San Diego but because of the location you feel like you on your on private island. The staff has always been friendly and accommodating to us.... More

Buffeted by the North San Diego Bay on one side and the Shelter Island Yacht Basin on the other, this comfortable stay feels like a best-kept secret for your San Diego visit. The staff was extremely friendly, the room felt spacious, the bed was possibly the most comfortable I’ve ever slept in, the room was quiet despite multiple wedding groups,... More

The Bay Club is on the harbor, which is near the San Diego Airport. It's far enough away to not be disturbed by any jet noise, but the shuttle they provide to the airport makes it very convenient...minutes away. I had a marina view room each time I was there & it was lovely to stand out on the balcony... More

Centrally located, close to San Diego main attractions. Excellent view of the Marina, specially from the dinning room. The food is very good in the hotel. I will recommend this hotel to family and friends.

I loved this place, the entire staff is friendly and accommodating. They have a terrific happy hour with a delicious wide variety of half price appetizers. Beds were comfortable and rooms are clean as is the whole place. Parking is tight and big SUV's take 2 spots. The location is perfect, no traffic and great views. I cant wait to... More

This hotel is on the Marina, has a good view from any room. Went Whale watching while there and saw some very unusual Whales.. There are many fine restaurants within 5 miles or less to enjoy. Downtown San Diego very close and has been redone and very inviting

Have stayed here twice in the past year. It's an affordable (relatively speaking) San Diego hotel. What really sets it apart is the location on Shelter Island. It's close to downtown, the airport, Point Loma, Sea World, and a short drive to the highways, but it's out of the congestion. The island has a public park ( which includes a... More

We stayed here as the hotel next door was cost prohibitive for our trip and we were pleasantly surprised with the hotel. The rooms were very spacious and nicely decorated. The beds and pillows were super comfy. The bathroom was large which is always a plus! We had a wonderful free breakfast of eggs, bacon, muffins, juice, coffee and cereal.... More
