We stayed at the Bay Club for the first time. The location was great, service was great & the views were awesome. The only downside was the construction which did not bother us since we were gone for most of the day touring San Diego.

Speedy check in with a friendly receptionist. Room was lovely, fresh and airy. The bathroom and sink were separate which was convenient. The bed was also very comfy. We ate in the restaurant the first night- the food was great and the waiter was super friendly and helpful. Tip- the mains come with soup or a salad and are great... More

We have been staying at the Bay Club for over 15 years. We stay there at least twice year, so that should say something!. They are undergoing refurbishments currently. The room we stayed in had been updated with new carpeting, drapes, and bedding. The only down side to rooms with 2 queen beds is that there is only lighting for... More

I paid the highest rate I have ever paid. Nothing was said about major construction being done (jack hammers, etc.) Had scheduled a business meeting in the D/R which was torn up. Forgot my toothbrush, went to the lobby store - no toiletries whatsoever (1st time since coming here), barely anything was in the store at all. I asked if... More

This was our first trip to San Diego, CA. I found this Hotel on a Hotel website and read the reviews. Everything was true about the description. We really liked our King size Bed/Room with a balcony that overlooked the pool and marina. This was a trip for my daughter and I and the room was full of big mirrors... More

We arrived to find the lobby under renovations, but the staff got us checked in just fine in spite of the makeshift check in desk. Actually the renovations really didn't interfere with our stay at all since it was just in the lobby. We had a nice big room, and really enjoyed sitting on the deck staring at the boats... More

Very nice stay, was under construction... but over all it was very nice and friendly welcoming staff. Rooms very clean, spacious, beautiful view of the Bay. I would stay there again. Enjoyed the hot breakfast that the hotel offered as complimentary. I would stay there again!

Overall the hotel was great, but the walls are too thin. The rooms are renovated and they are very clean. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The complimentary breakfast is great! There is a fee for parking but it's minimal. The area is quiet and great for walks and relaxing.

Seven of our family was here for about four days and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. During our February visit, they were re carpeting the halls and some rooms and worked hard to make our stay enjoyable without inconvenience. We had ordered bay side rooms and one of the rooms were faced the bay and the other faced the marina which... More
