Rooms are fine and clean but the poor wifi hasn't changed since I stayed here 2 years ago. The front desk said they'd have someone contact me about this 2 days ago and no one has. I doubt if it could be improved anyway as it couldn't when I stayed here 2 years ago. Hard to believe in this day... More

The Bay Club Hotel & Marina is in a lovely spot right on the water. It's very quiet and you can even see seals swimming around in the bay following in the boats! The room was a bit tired but it was clean, comfortable and quiet. There was a coffee machine and coffee provided in the room, but if you... More

Vacationed in San Diego for 12 days and we stayed at the Bay Club Marina. We opted to stay our of downtown SD and the hotel is on Shelter Island. Shelter Island was a real treat. We are a family of 3 and our room was large and comfortable. We had a marina view and enjoyed it each morning coffee... More

The hotel is dated but we don't care; the working marina, scenic harbor, visable fire works, local music, enticing charters and relaxing sandy beaches make other issues seem trifling. The hotel is five minutes from the In-N-Out Burger, twenty minutes from the airport and half hour from Coronado; Google Maps takes you straight to your destination. Second floor balcony rooms...

Stayed here with some friends and was pleased but it could be really great. The front desk staff was friendly and very accommodating. They even arranged an early check-in. The change from the buffet to restaurant service is bumpy. Food was good but slow. The server was very nice (Anelisa?) Our room was large and quiet (even looking over the... More

I stayed here with a friend. Very big rooms. Everything was clean and the view was picture perfect. I am generally rather critical of hotels. This is a nice quiet and small property. I love the balconies.

We have Stayed at Bay Club lots over the years. The rooms remodel is nice. Buffet breakfast is not included now. Menu selections are good with prices in line with other similar San Diego restaurants, a little higher that some other cities. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. Will stay again lots more.

What's lovely about the Bay Club is that it's located on Shelter Island in San Diego, a place that really does feel like you're in Hawaii, or somewhere in the pacific. The Bay Club itself is a charming place that's showing a little wear on the outside, but my room was in excellent condition. The price was also right, and... More

We had reservations yesterday and called to see if our room was ready and we were told that our room was given away cause the people the night before wanted to stay an extra night. To make a long story short we stay here all the time about three to four time a year and love it here but the... More
