“what a nice surprise!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

the room was very spacious, clean, and comfortable with an amazing view of both the city and the marina. the staff were very friendly and helpful. the location is perfect. close to all attractions and in a wonderfully quiet and safe area. although i appreciate the complimentary breakfast idea, i don't like having to go and get it myself. i skipped it. one of the amenities i was also looking forward to was the gift shop. oh dear, what a disappointment. it's a newspaper stand. the pool area was lovely and clean. the grounds are very well kept. definitely a plus.

Room Tip: i don't think there could be a bad room.

We loved this hotel! We had an issue with our arrival date due to airline problems and the management really worked with us on the issue. The marina view was breathtaking. Great free breakfast. I can't wait to go back and stay here again! Walk across the street to see sea lions in the ocean. Wow!!!

We stayed at the Bay Club on Shelter Island in San Diego, CA. for the first time. We come to San Diego often over many years. The staff couldn't be more accommodating, the rooms are very comfortable and well maintained and the complimentary breakfast is always a good way to start the day. Very friendly staff, clean room, clean bathroom, good food and friendly restaurant. Thanks, we will be back.

This hidden gem on Shelter Island is not to be missed. Rooms are Hawaiian themed and the hotel is quaint, nautical and family freindly. Overlooking either the bay or the marina, both are wonderful. All rooms have balconies and are spacious and comfortable. Parking is a premium plus and is wonderful to watch the ships and harbor activties. Relaxing and enjoyable experience, but only negative aspect I found was the rooms are not quite as quite as would have liked as we were listening to the family next door. Most definetly would stay again...

Room Tip: Stay in a Marina room for a wonderful experience.

The hotel is located on Shelter Island with views of the yacht harbor or the bay and the North Island Naval Base. A buffet breakfast is included and the rates are very reasonable. We have stayed there many times and will continue to do so.

We recently returned from a visit to the Bay Club on Shelter Island in San Diego, CA. We have stayed at the Bay Club many times over many years. The staff couldn't be more accommodating, the rooms are very comfortable and well maintained and the complimentary breakfast is always a good way to start the day. We go there to escape the desert heat in the summer and we often stay there prior to flights out of San Diego. The hotel shuttle service makes the airport trip relatively hassle free. The area around the hotel offers spectacular views and great, safe walking along the harbor. We love to watch all the ship activity. There are a number of good restaurants in the area and someone at the front desk is always willing to print a menu and/or map. This property is in the midst of all that San Diego has to offer, yet the location is quiet and restful, away from any heavy traffic.
