A recent renovation has improved rooms (new flooring, bed spreads, curtains and freshly painted) and major improvements to lobby/restaurant areas. Good rates, location and staff as always. There are at least a dozen good restaurants within walking distance (1/2 mile).

Hotel has been refurbished and looks beautiful… Same good service and great staff.. Location is terrific..Great views and location……Has a great pool and marina.. Breakfast is great and you would need a car to get to town, but the hotel has a great view, and you can see the ships going in and out of the harbor….

We chose this hotel to end a family trip crossing the country from NY by car. And I am happy to say it was the perfect place. Location is excellent, not too far from the new and old downtowns and very quiet. Vistas are excellent. We booked our 2 rooms facing the marina, but those in the other side would... More

This was our first trip to San Diego and our first stay at the Bay Club. What a great place! It is not a new hotel (which we didn't want) but has been well cared for and has retained a ton of marina/ beach charm. Standouts for us: not a lot of kids, very quiet, very friendly and helpful staff... More

Excellent staff - very friendly and informative. Told us about a marathon going on the next day when a cross street would be blocked while runners were coming through. Great location - Shelter Island was great! Downtown San Diego, Sea World, Point Loma, etc. were about a 10 minute drive. Spectacular view - Downtown San Diego was just across the... More

On a recent family vacation we sought out a convenient family friendly hotel and ultimately selected the Bay Club Hotel & Marina. The primary attractions for us included location on the water, convenient to downtown being located on Shelter Island, free parking, free breakfast, free wi-fi and solid reviews from other travelers. We opted for a marina view which was... More

Stayed in room 272, a room with a wide view of the marina. My wife and I like staying here because it is next to the concert venue and an extremely convenient 90 second stroll away. We've also had the privilege of being on the marina side each time so we get the quietness of the bay. The only thing... More

My husband and I stayed at the Bay Club 4 nights last week. It is a small, quiet hotel in a nice location on Shelter Island. Easy drive to anywhere in San Diego. A couple of nice restaurants on Shelter Island but no shops to visit, unless you own a boat! The people were very nice, from the front desk... More

What a beautiful quiet place to stay.. Very first when we got there we asked for a [ 2 Queen Bedroom ] She looked and changed some thing around so we could have Queen beds. Staff was very helpful. It is a beautiful place to stay. Shelter Island is a very nice place to stay

The room was spacious and clean. I loved the white duvet bedcover. Made the room seem extra bright. It was a midweek stay so there was plenty of parking and no traffic. I enjoyed sitting outside on the balcony with the chips, salsa, and Corona's you brought to the room. Weather could not have been nicer. Watched the ships float... More
