Hubby & I plus 2 friends needed a place to stay while participating in the Lupus 5K event. When I found this hotel on line we decided to make it a weekend & weren't disappointed. We absolutely loved this place!! Views are gorgeous, great pool, hot tub & tabletop fire pit. Rooms & beds super comfy with balcony, parking plentiful.... More

The location was perfect - only a short drive to the Gaslamp district, Old Town San Diego, and airport. The rooms were clean and spacious but a little dated. The breakfast buffet was good - I truly enjoyed the fresh fruit. The only downside was that the Internet speed was extremely slow and the connection was very spotty. A good... More

Stayed 2 nights to see a concert at Humphrey's next door. Spacious room with queen beds. Bathroom looked like it was recently updated. Parking was easy in front of hotel. Had breakfast both days. It was just o.k. with scrambled eggs, sausage, potatoes and breads and pastries. Staff was friendly although when I asked about the 20% discount for dining... More

I am coming back to this hotel since 16 years. It is a friendly and relaxing place, in a very relaxing environment. It is close to major attractions in San Diego. Friendly staff. Breakfast could be better, but this is almost everywhere in the US.

This is the second time we stayed here. Last year I could not find one thing wrong. This year was disappointing. We arrived at 330pm. Check in time is 3pm. We were told they guarantee rooms by 4pm. Why say check is 3 when the room wasn't ready until 4? When I reserved the room I requested a rollaway bed... More

We did not have housekeeping for two days. When they did do it, it look like it was not done. Also the tv in the bedroom you could not hear the people talking. The front desk was helpful in getting a room for us. I book the room was a one bedroom suite. Come to fine out you can book... More

Its always easy to find good rates here at Bay Club. The staff made check in/out pretty fast. Most of my interaction was with Patti & Ryan & they were very nice. (Also good to see Mgr Aaron staying busy.) I love the look & feel of the new lobby. I was tired of the old piano man! I chose... More

We stayed 4 nights on the 2nd floor w a fantastic bay view from the balcony. Breakfast was delicious and enjoyed outside seating each morning facing the marina and mountain. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean but bath area is a little dated. Beds are comfortable. Wished they had a microwave in room. Hotel location is close... More

Lovely, large rooms with very comfortable beds. The bathroom area is spacious and well lit. The toiletries were very nice. I really loved the body lotion. The coffee makers are the new one cup makers. Coffee is also available in the lobby area in the morning. The housekeepers are excellent and our rooms were kept nicely clean and made-up every... More

This hotel is so quaint and easy to love. The marina is on one side and the San Diego Bay is on the other. No matter what side of the hotel you stay on, you have a beautiful view. We always stay on the marina side, it is so relaxing to sit out on your little patio and watch the... More
